Bessie's Beach



Welcome to Barbadon, our year round vacation home on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan.

Barbadon offers a full array of amenities to the executive couple as well as a family of four. We offer central heating and cooling, internet connection, cable TV, telephone (local only), fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a laundry room with clothes washer and dryer. You can stay connected while you disconnect from the rest of the world -- if you want to.

Barbadon features a rustic interior of rough sawn cedar planking. The truss & vaulted Family Room has two story sandstone gas fireplace. A bunk of fixed glass allows an overlook of the wood deck and beach. The dining room and kitchen are integral, also having an expanse of glass to view sunrises and the frolicking waters. Adjacent is the Sunroom which has a work space with internet connection for your vacation planning and a library of books and games for your pleasure. The Master Bedroom offers a duo of bay windows, antique furniture, closet space and a bathroom with whirlpool tub. The second floor has a loft overlooking the Family Room and a rather large bedroom that sleeps two. The large wood deck invites long sittings, it is truly a beautiful setting for a casual brunch, dinner and of course a cocktail and appetizer while you grill your favorite food.
