Property Description

This tastefully decorated lakefront home is just two hours door to door from Chicago and boasts over 100 foot of lake frontage on a great fishing and all sports lake in the lovely community of Paw Paw, Michigan (Exit 60 off of I-94 followed by a two-three minute drive from the highway exit).

There is a sprawling deck across the entire backside of the house with panoramic views across the lake and all amenities that you could want for an enjoyable, peaceful escape from the 'busy-ness' of normal city living.

A large picture window in the kitchen and dining area will allow you to sit, read and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching many 'local' swans swim in the tranquil cove where the property's jetty is constructed along the water's edge. Don't forget your fishing rod as you may even want to sit on the dock and fish for bluegills or bass to fry up for dinner. Also within the house there is a large living area with new, comfortable couches adjacent to the sliding glass windows looking across the lake where you can easily walk out on to the 85+ foot elevated deck that runs along the back side of the house. There is also a desk (with plenty of lights) and a very comfortable desk chair in this large living room area with large windows in front of the desk that allow you to view the panorama of the lake if you are hoping to have a productive week of writing. (A small water fountain and sound system is also located in the room to create the perfect setting for focused research and writing. **In fact, there was a PhD written from that location; so there is very productive karma!).

There are two and a half bathrooms for your convenience as well as a spacious kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave and coffee maker ready for you to use. There is also a stacked washer and dryer hidden within one of the closets if you want to minimize the amount of clothing you pack for your getaway.

There is a large bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and walk-in closets. All linen, pillows and towels are provided so that you can focus on your writing, or just relax and escape from the very moment that you arrive-(and not have to worry about making trips back and forth to your car to unpack).

Several nice restaurants and stores are within a five-ten minute walk from the house and there are numerous attractions and beautiful vineyards within 20 minutes of the house. You could easily drive to Lake Michigan in about 30-40 minutes as South Haven is easily accessible from this location.

The owner has specifically designed this accommodation for couples who want to escape OR individuals who are wanting to be productive in their reading and writing. It has been decorated in a manner that will allow you to feel very relaxed and/or productive from the moment you walk through the entrance of the house. Although there is ample space within the house, there is only one primary bedroom area, so it is not designed for families. This has been done intentionally to target those individuals seeking a serene, peaceful environment that will allow you to refresh and recharge and be productive. For specific questions, please feel free to contact the owner to get any clarification that you may desire.
