The space
This is the perfect family home for a reunion, or multiple families gathering together. 4 Bedrooms and 4 Full Bathrooms, 2 Living Spaces, a stunning Dining Area + Lounge and huge back yard allow space for everyone to enjoy. Come down from your cozy bedroom with either a fireplace, ensuite or large bunk room and enjoy coffee at the breakfast table while someone else plays short order cook and fries up eggs on the griddle before heading to the beach. You'll find The Nest loaded with intentionally placed amenities everywhere you turn. Grab a beach chair from the garage and head out for a day of sightseeing in St. Joseph's, swing by world renowned Bit 'O Swiss Bakery on your way home, and enjoy the delectable treat after a rousing game of Galaga on the arcade.

Neighborhood overview
Set on a peaceful wooded acre, the retreat is located west of Red Arrow highway and just a 5 minute bike ride to the nearest beach access. Situated just north of Harbor Country and minutes from the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail, the home is equidistant to Silver Beach/St. Joseph's and Warren Dunes State Park. Nature abounds as we are also a stone's throw from Grand Mere State Park where you can go on a leisurely or active hike and enjoy the beach.
Getting around
A circular drive + full driveway leading to a 2 car garage provide parking for as many as needed. One garage space is available for guests to park, as the rest of the space is stocked with seasonal toys for your use -- everything from 4 adult bikes, 2 children's bikes, a Burley double bike trailer, to beach chairs, an umbrella, a cooler and sand toys are provided.

Take up an evening game of hoops on the basketball court out front. Sneak in a game of bocce in the backyard while the Chef of the group cooks dinner on the 48" built in grill while the kids play in the brand new heated pool.

Good thing you've stopped at the Farm Stand on the way home, as there is a 48" Kitchen Aid Range with griddle, Gagenaeu steamer, pot filler, beverage cooler, 3 sinks for prep and 2 dishwashers to make chores a little less ... choreful on vacation. That's in addition to the large, covered outdoor kitchen with range, dishwasher, ice maker, prep sink and bountiful counter space.

There is plenty to entertain the young and young at heart in the home, including a retro arcade, dart board, 6 TV's with ROKU in guest mode so you can log onto your own subscriptions and not have to remember to log out when you reluctantly have to leave.
