Lake Michigan Water Levels Update

As the world pandamic is happening we are also dealing with a local high water level that has shrunk our beaches.  Please view each property listing for up to date beach information (if private beach frontage) or contact us as the beach size, beach access, and water levels vary from property to property.  Please also understand that as our public beaches have shrunk, they are open, usable and still wonderfull!!

Beach Conditions on Lake Michigan
As Lake Michigan beach conditions are subject to variation due to water levels and other uncontrollable natural factors, actual conditions at the beach may be significantly different from those reflected in the listing.
Lake Michigan Cottages may not be held liable for any damages whatsoever from loss of use or accessibility of Lake Michigan beach.
Please note that increasingly high water levels all along the lakeshore have been reported as this season is progressing. If this trend continues it is quite likely that larger public beaches will be the only viable access points to Lake Michigan.
