Lake Michigan

Such an incredible body of water. For those who know it, it’s a treasure. Some call it “Big Blue”. For all intents and purposes, it’s a fresh water ocean. You can’t see to the other side, the waves and the beach are spectacular, and it’s loaded with recreational potential, like swimming, boating, beachcombing, sailing and soaking up limitless picturesque scenery. (Oh, and no sharks!) To own property on or near Lake Michigan is a privilege. You’re able to enjoy the full range of its beauty, from the calm, glassy waters, gently lapping on the shore, to the full fury of its whitecaps, as far as you can see on the horizon.
