Out and About is an airy, dog-friendly cottage near Lake Michigan beach access and is waiting for you to host your next Michigan getaway! Its quaint exterior appears petite but gives way to an open and spacious home that's perfect for a lakeshore vacation. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the pristine nature preserve just a short walk from the home's doors. The living area features comfortable and inviting furnishings strategically placed in front of a flatscreen TV, making it the perfect spot to unwind with your friends after a long day at the lake. Gather around the firepit in the newly fenced yard with your friends and plan tomorrow's adventures as you roast some s'mores. The outdoor dining area is another great place to gather as you enjoy some snacks or tasty grilled meals thanks to the gas grill.
Take a scenic hike from the cottage through the nearby Wau-Ke-Nau, William Erby Smith Nature Preserve to reach a gorgeous, dog-friendly Lake Michigan beach. Less than eight miles away, you’ll find Saugatuck and Douglas to the north. There you can enjoy the shops, restaurants, art galleries, and more. A little bit further to the South, 12 miles, you will find Meijer and other conveniences and another cute beach town with shops and restaurants.
