House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

2015 Season now officially Open! Rentals by the week (Saturday to Saturday). Get the best week for your family now. Some partial weeks open during the off season.

Located just a 5 minute drive north of St. Joseph, this architectural gem was completed in 2008 on Lake Michigan. Every room has a commanding view of the lake, with a spacious deck, balconies on all three levels, huge lawn, backyard firepit, staircase to the beach (BE ADVISED: over 200 steps), landscaping, and fully furnished with all essentials.

Rentals are weekly (Saturday to Saturday) during the Summer season. Partial weeks are available in May and the Fall.

The gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, brand new appliances, dining room with a view of the lake and easy access to the deck. The appliances, bedding and furnishings are all brand new. All dishware, cooking utensils, linens, towels and other essentials are of the finest quality and also brand new. An outdoor gas grill fits your BBQ needs with plenty of space for kids and adults alike to play in the back yard.

Four bedrooms can sleep 8 people with plenty of room to sleep at least 4 more in comfort and luxury. 4 and 1/2 half baths allow for privacy and no lines. A family room and third floor loft capture the magnificent views of the big lake from every vantage point.

Plenty of offstreet parking accommodates all your vehicles with room to spare. Beach toys are supplied.

The Master Bedroom has a King Bed with a fireplace and suite plus its own master bathroom, walk in closet and its own balcony. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have queen beds with a Jack and Jill tiled bathroom. Bedroom 4 has a queen bed with its own bathroom. All bedrooms have lakeviews and their own balconies.

St, Joseph has a new golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus (and home of the 2012 and 2014 Senior PGA Championship) plus some of the finest beaches in the country with all water sports available. Excellent restaurants abound in the immediate area (Tosi's, Grande Mere, Bistro Blvd, Papa Vino, Cozumel) and many others within 15-20 minutes drive from town.

Enjoy the sunsets from the deck on the house overlooking the lake or have a roaring bonfire on the beach roasting marshmallows and enjoying a drink.

The home is lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house. As mentioned above, the steps to the beach are not for the faint of heart.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week at this home very much recently! The spaciousness in this home and its view are great! The kitchen is fun to work in with its large cutting board and ample counter space! We could easily accomodate extra family members a few different nights with the extra beds in the basement and also in the loft, which has a fantastic view of Lake Michigan, along with all of the bedrooms! The waves and temperature of the water made for great swimming and a fun time with our children and grandchildren! We look forward to returning to this home!

Lake house in St Josephs

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here with a total of 8 adults and 9 children with plenty of room to spare. The house was beautiful. The backyard and fire pit wonderful, and the sunsets were amazing. Beware, the stairs to the beach are numerous and difficult to traverse, with an update needed soon. The beach below was beautiful and private, but no fast trips up or down. The owners were quite helpful. We ended up going to two public beaches--rocky Gap and Silver due to difficulty with getting children up and down the stairs. With that said, the house is great for large groups. St Josephs is a quaint, lovely town worth the visit.

A perfect get away for any reason.

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at this rental with our family. It was more than we expected.
The indoor and outdoor space was perfect in every way. Plenty of space and beautiful views of the lake.
We also spent time in the kitchen /family area and found everything we needed and more.
The bedrooms each had their own balcony with the view and the master bedroom was gorgeous,as were the shower/jacuzzi bath.
The Fire Pit was a favorite for all of us after the sunset (to which we had front row seats).
There was privacy is you wanted it and wonderful places to be together if you chose .
We also enjoyed the nearby towns and all they had to offer as well.
Our beach was totally private and beautiful if you chose to go there.
I highly recommend this home for any kind of get away. Enjoyed it so much. Char

Beautiful House and Views

  • 5 of 5
We had a large group here last weekend. The house is clean and beautifully furnished. All the bedrooms have views of the lake (and the beds are comfortable!). The master suite is truly luxurious. Kitchen is large and has everything you might need. The deck has two tables with chairs, and there are 7-8 Adirondack chairs around the fire pit. We counted 236 steps down to the beach, so it's a workout but certainly manageable if you're in decent shape. All in all, a really nice place to stay and we look forward to returning next year.

If you get a chance to rent this property, do it. You won't regret it. The views from the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan are stunning. The house is beautiful. Tremendous views from every room. The owners are very accommodating. Couldn't be more fair. We rented it with a group of friends for a weekend and had a blast. Enjoyed the fire pit and the spectacular sunset.
