What makes this adorable rental so interesting is that the cottage is constructed of stone and wood reclaimed from the historic Silver Beach Amusement Park roller coaster. The legendary amusement park graced the shores of St. Joseph, Michigan, from 1891-1971. Today the original site is known as Silver Beach County Park.

The Willow House has two bedrooms, and two bathrooms and can sleep 6 comfortably with the addition of the queen futon. The beautifully decorated cottage is perfect for a  warm weather getaway with a gorgeous deck and firepit to enjoy under the stars

For those winter months, relax and unwind by visiting the local breweries, wineries, and restaurants just minutes away. Keep in mind during the winter you will need to access the cottage via an SUV or ATV.
