Holiday Rental House
You can't see another house or hear anything but the forest and the waves at 'Windy Ridge,' a house so secluded in the dunes that even google hasn't found it. Abiut 150 yards down a footpath through the woods is a private Lake Michigan sandy beach on which you can walk for miles (and see spectacular sunsets). You feel like you've left civilization far behind, but Windy Ridge is just two hours from Chicago (and a bit further from Detroit and Indianapolis), midway between South Haven and St. Joseph. The house is in great shape and has all the amenities you'd want. We know you will love the place as we have for 33 years. Please inquire about specific dates and costs. Note that we generally rent by the week from June through September and we do not schedule for next summer until May 1.

Large, comfortable, secluded cottage with a lovely screened-in porch and two sun decks surrounded by lush greenery. We and our two dogs loved swimming and taking long walks on the private beach. All in all, it was a relaxing and very satisfying vacation.
