This lovely 1923 vacation home is a block from Lake Michigan's northeast shore. The lake is a freshwater inland sea with shorelines too distant to see from the opposite sides and with shipping lanes filled with great cargo ships. Some 12 million people live beside the lake, but not many of them this far up in the Lower Peninsula.

This vacation house has a tumbled-stone front porch, hardwood floors, large rooms, formal dining room, fireplace and a three-car garage. There's a second kitchen upstairs for convenient late night snacking.

In additional to the boating, swimming and fishing, which headline the recreational opportunities, there's nearby casinos and some of the state's best ski resorts. It's about a four hour drive from Detroit.
