The 10 coolest beachside Airbnbs on Lake Michigan you should stay at this summer
  60-Acre Lakefront Estate 
11 guests, 5 bedrooms, 9 beds, 3.5 baths
The experience begins with this home before the front door is even opened. Visitors drive a mile-long winding road through wooded dunes, which eventually fade away behind you as a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan greets you. The home sits on 900 feet of private lake access, ensuring privacy and a space for uninterrupted vacationing. Dubbed the “Wake Robin,” the home was built in 1981 by a local architect specializing in contemporary design, and was among the first homes in West Michigan with an open concept floor plan. While little has been changed about the home since its creation, the kitchen and bathrooms were updated with modern appliances in 2016. Visitors can enjoy eating inside the spacious kitchen or on the wide patio, then walk right back down to the water and get back into the fun. There is nothing not to love about this home (except maybe the price tag).
