Unique Features

The Lookout’s location makes this vacation rental very special. A two-minute walk to the bluffs offers a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan like no other. A five-minute walk takes you down to the beach of Lake Michigan where the shores are naturally sandy, perfect for swimming and relaxing in the sun. The easy access to the beach makes this the perfect summer vacation spot where you can spend all day on the water or go into town for shopping, site seeing and other fun activities.

Betsie Valley trail is for non-motorized activities: walking, biking, cross-country skiing, and snow shoeing. There are ATV trails and snowmobile trails in Benzie County. The winter snow draws people from all over to ski at the Crystal Mountain and ice fish on Crystal Lake.

Things To Do

The Lookout is located within Benzie County, which has many opportunities for outdoor recreational activities. The Champion Hill Golf Course is a scenic course located in the hills of the Benzie County highlands. The distant views of Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake are sure to make for a great golf experience. If you are into fishing, local Charters can take you out on Lake Michigan for salmon and trout fishing. The family-friendly company uses a hands-on approach for all skill levels of fisherman, making it a great activity for the whole family.

Benzie County also has plenty of fun shopping opportunities. With boutiques, markets, antique shops and more, the area is great to explore and discover unique local businesses. The Point Betsie Lighthouse is a great historical site to check out during your stay at the Lookout. Semi-guided and self-guided tours are available with a climb to the top of the lighthouse tower included.
