Our house in Castle Park, Michigan, is the perfect setting for large gatherings of family or friends. On the shores of Lake Michigan, it's just a 2.5 hour drive from Chicago or about 3 hours from Detroit. Begun in 2005 and completed in 2006, its location, 700 feet from a large private beach shared by just ten houses, is remote enough to give that "get away from it all" feeling, yet just a short walk or ride from the quaint charm and unparalleled amenities of Castle Park, including eight green-clay tennis courts, swimming pool, community library, Saturday night dances, Thursday bingo, and other pleasures of a bygone era.
