The space

Vacation on top of the world! Perched magnificently atop one of the highest points along Lake Michigan's shoreline, experience resort-like living in the privacy and majesty of the surroundings. Arguably the best view home from Chicago to Traverse City, Dune Summit lets you experience every amazing Lake Michigan sunset, and sunrises like you have never experienced before. This home not only boasts views of the Lake Michigan shoreline, including Grand Haven pier and Rosy Mound Natural Area, but a 360 degree view for 20 miles! Relaxing out on our over 2,500 sq. feet of decking surrounding the home, you will feel like you are transported to another landscape, experiencing the uniquely Michigan sand dune shoreline and the breathtaking view of the treetops. On a clear night, one can watch the airplanes take off from across Lake Michigan in Wisconsin! (Experience even more wonders of the day and night sky with the telescope and binoculars provided). Eagles, owls, and dozens of songbirds alight in the trees around you. Deer, rabbit, turkey and red fox can be spotted browsing on the drive and in the ravines. Imagine your summer evening, grilling out on the decks, cooled by the lake breezes captured by your lofty peak!

This home has three clean and comfortable bedrooms and two full luxury bathrooms. Each bedroom has sliding glass doors with majestic views of the lake. Upper level bedroom has queen bed, cathedral ceilings and private balcony- perfect for soaking up the last rays of sunshine as they disappear over the waves. First floor bedroom, also with queen, steps onto the deck and captures the same gorgeous view. Lower level walk-out, with two twin beds, (perfect camping space for young travelers or extra guests), steps onto porch, and has two glass sliders so everyone can enjoy the view!

The kitchen, with granite counters, stainless appliances and wood floors, is equipped with everything you need to dine in. While you prepare your cup of morning coffee (automatic drip machine and moka pot provided) and breakfast, look out over the sunrise cresting over Grand Rapids from the kitchen windows. Dine at the table inside, or step out the back doors onto the deck and relax on the outdoor furniture. The outdoor living space now boasts an on deck fireplace for your relaxing evenings. The Great Room accommodates your whole group, with a soaring two stories of windows to keep you feeling connected to your amazing surroundings, even while inside. Unwind after a day of adventures with a movie on our LED 3D smart TV- Wifi equipped, with Appletv, for your Netflix account or other Internet viewing.

Situated on 9.5 acres, travelers ascend our private drive, and park way, way, way off the road for the ultimate in safety for the kids; and privacy for you! Only one other home shares this lofty perch, and Dune Summit is the highest point. Off the back deck, no one can see you, but you can see everything. We have added trails throughout the property, leading to more fun and scenic beauty. For relaxing and viewing the sunset from an even more private perch, we have hammocks at the 'scenic overlook," There is a bonfire pit with built in log seating and solar lighting, stocked with logs for your fires. For kids and the young at heart, with installed a trampoline with enclosure, and a zip line through the forest. A large grassy field "the secret garden" is tucked away on a dune ridge for you to find and enjoy.

Though the home doesn't have private beach access, some of the best beaches are only minutes away. Spend your days at the premier beaches in the area - just down the drive, and then return to your retreat and take in the last rays of sun. Check out Rosy Mound beach next door(.7 miles from our door to the trailhead) with its miles of trails and boardwalk, or take a short drive or bike ride to downtown Grand Haven to experience the pier, musical fountain, public beach and Coastguard festival. For serious adventure seekers, bike the trail system that connects from the house north to Grand Haven and south to Holland state Park! (Bikes provided upon request- along with bike trailer for your little travelers and/transporting beach supplies).Enjoy our guide to all of the best of the amazing beauty this area is waiting to offer you!
