Every home can be a summer home. You don’t need a house at the beach or cottage in the woods to take advantage of the sunny weather. With a little planning and design, you can turn your home into the perfect summer getaway – without having to get away.
If you are thinking about moving this year, a little planning and a visit or two to an Eastbrook Homes open house can help you select the perfect location for your new home. Especially if you have a favorite summer activity.
Tour some of our Eastbrook Communities and discover beautiful golf courses, beachfront living, or hiking trails and bicycle adventures. Here are just a few.
- Macatawa Legends
- For golf enthusiasts, we have several locations that are perfect for you. Check out Macatawa Legends in Holland, MI, where our latest phase is open for tours.
- You’ll discover a championship golf course, multi-use clubhouse, restaurant, pool, and health club. Macatawa Legends is also close to Holland’s Quincy Park, a beautiful dog park, and of course, the incredible beaches of Holland State Park where nightly sunset gatherings are a thing.
- College Fields
- Golfers can also enjoy the summer weather at College Fields in Okemos, MI, near Greater Lansing.
- Nestled around the beautiful, 300-acre College Fields golf course, this community provides residents with easy access to the MSU campus and all of the shopping, dining, and entertainment options East Lansing has to offer.
- Tannery Bay
- If the beach is your passion, then the lakefront community of Tannery Bay in Whitehall, MI, is the perfect place for a summer staycation. Why use up vacation days traveling when your own home is already at the beach?
- Perched on the shores of White Lake, Tannery Bay provides the perfect home base for a beach and lakeshore lifestyle. Hit the beaches of White Lake, or head for the Lake Michigan shoreline nearby to play in the sun and surf.
- Tannery Bay residents can also take advantage of the shopping and dining experiences in nearby Muskegon, or take a short drive to discover all that Grand Rapids has to offer.
- Green thumb? Use a little landscaping to create a unique personal getaway where you can relax in the sun.
- Structure can really personalize your patio home. Add a pergola or trellis to create a personal hideout or meeting place for family and friends.
To make your home really feel like a summer getaway, put together some fun outdoor activities that kids, friends, or family can enjoy. Most are simple and easy to build, although they can also be purchased instead.
- Even a small pool can be fun for a couple of kids or close friends. Or, install an inflatable hot tub and crank up the heat.
- Summer is not quite complete without a good game of corn hole, croquet, or horseshoes.
- Host an outdoor movie night with friends and neighbors and watch your favorite summer flicks.
No matter how you choose to spend the summer, there’s no need to go searching for a vacation destination. Who needs a summer cottage when you can easily transform your existing patio home, condo, or single-family house into the ultimate summer getaway.
