Old Victorian Home With Lovely Wrap-Around Porch for Relaxing and Entertaining
4 bedrooms, 1 sleeping alcove, 3 full baths, sleeps 8-11
Enjoy a beautiful turn-of-the-century home built by a Lake Michigan Merchant Marine Captain. The house is located three blocks from downtown shops, galleries and restaurants and the same distance to the boardwalk leading to beautiful Lake Michigan. The Captain's Cottage sleeps up to eleven and has three separate living areas -- main floor, second floor and a studio apartment. While you can enjoy each others company for meals and interaction, you can also have privacy when desired.
The main floor of the Captain's Cottage, decorated in costal eclectic style, has a kitchen, large dining room seating eleven, living room with gas fireplace, master bedroom with queen bed, and second bedroom with a queen and daybed. The kitchen is well-stocked with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster (sorry, no dishwasher). The second floor has a bedroom with a queen, a sleeping alcove with two twin beds, a living room, kitchen and full bath. The studio apartment has a double bed, full bath and combination refrigerator/stovetop burners.
While other cottage advertisements mention porches and sundecks, the Captain's Cottage wrap-around covered porch is one of the amenities guest enjoy the most. One section is large enough to gather all guests together for conversation and refreshments, another section has an octogonal picnic table and the third section has a comfortable wicker sofa for quiet reading or napping.

Older home with lots of folk art in quiet area of town so requires 'gentle' use.
