The SHORES is a cozy duplex cottage with private water access, discounted boat docks for rent, and a beautiful sandy beach nearby. It is located on Bird Creek. You will be just a 3-minute walk to shopping, outdoor dining and the Port Austin Harbor.

Accommodations consist of a two-bedroom cottage that sleeps six to eight (unit 2) and a one-bedroom cottage (unit 1) that sleeps four to six. Rent one unit or the entire property for a unique getaway your friends and family will remember forever.

The space
Unit 2 has a lake view but is not directly on the water. Bird Creek Park is about 50 yards away with a playground, restrooms and a sandy beach. Unit 1 is directly on (partially over) Bird Creek. Unit 1 deck is a great spot to watch the sunset, kayakers and boats go by in the summer.

We have completely painted the inside of both units and have a painter scheduled for this fall (2020) to complete the exterior.

All bedding is new, including the pillows, sheets, beds and futon covers.
