From the porch/deck of this exceptional 2200sq.ft. home, enjoy the
spectacular Lake Michigan sunsets. Walk 600 ft. to the Lake Michigan
shore and play on the magnificent sugar sand beach that connects
35 miles of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
The back yard adjoins a nature preserve where deer, wild
turkeys, fox and other wildlife are frequently seen. The side yard
rolls gently down to a mowed grass park and the edge of South Bar
Lake, a 1 mile long lake just 200 ft. from the Michigan shoreline.
Within walking distance of one block to the east are the post office,
grocery store, bank, Friendly's Tavern and Tiffany's Ice Cream
Parlor. Two blocks to the east is the Public Library.
This is truly a unique location.
Because our Lake Michigan home is special to us, we request
great care and consideration from our renters.
Although I rarely have the opportunity to meet our guests face to face, I enjoy getting to know you through phone calls, email and correspondence. I am a family man who is grateful to have found a little piece of heaven in Park Place which we enjoy sharing with others who appreciate and respect the home and the area.
Park Place is more wonderful than we had dreamed it would be. Every morning I would raise the blinds to greet my 2 !!! lakes and every evening we'd be treated to a gorgeous sunset through the same window. One of my favorite things in life is to enjoy a meal in a peaceful setting with a beautiful view. I love this big eat in kitchen. Speaking of eating - we did enjoy several cafes, a brewery, ice cream shops... And we climbed the trails!
Thank you for sharing your paradise.
