The cottage features two Decks:
An attached deck with picnic table and chairs for outdoor dining and relaxing
A second deck above the beach dune with views overlooking Lake Superior and the spectacular sunsets over Shot Point to the west. It's just right for enjoying your morning cup of coffee or even watching the stars come out at night.
Note: Recently lake levels have risen, causing dune erosion all along the lake shore, eliminating the previous gradual dune slope. As a result we built stairs with a railing down to the beach. Also, after losing the original dune deck to the lake, we've re-built a smaller deck back from the dune's edge.
Located 15 miles east of Marquette on scenic Highway M-28, the cottage is close to dining, shopping, and entertainment. It is near hiking and bicycle trails, several golf courses, and a casino.
26 miles east of the cottage is the wild and beautiful Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, located near Munising.
Wherever your adventures take you, the Beachcomber's Cottage is your perfect home base.

"Just a quick note to say it was a wonderful treat to stay at the cottage this past week. Weather was delightful for sunbathing, golf, and everything else. I saw more lady's slippers blooming at the cottage than I've seen in my whole life combined, awesome! The accommodations at the cottage are superb."
