With summer on its way out, it's time to answer the eternal question: Up North or west to Lake Michigan? This home is the best of the latter. For just $1295 a night, you can stay at this modern beach house in Grand Haven. This massive Lake Michigan home sleeps 25 in 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, and has both a cool modern style that reads as very relaxing. Not only is the house a sleek, elegant space, Grand Haven is a fun beach town. As we've said, it's just adorable.

The ultramodern kitchen comes fully equipped, and the rec room offers a ping pong table for rare rainy days at the beach. There are a couple of small living spaces with round windows. The strange decoration in one of these spaces (mannequins!) gives the room a creepy, sinister feel (in a cinematic way). The home's massive soaking tub is also in front of a round window, but in that room, the window seems soothing. The home has sleek, edgy furniture in leather, wood and steel, strangely inviting furniture. Like a pair of red leather chaises.

Other amenities include membership passes to Spring Lake Aquatics Center, an indoor water park with a twisty pool slide; and a master suite whose luxe bath has a full steam shower and an infinity hot tub. For the active, the house has beach access and a pool. For the lazy, the house has an actual elevator, and three 50-inch televisions. Book now, because the secret of this 11,000-square-foot retreat for you and your 24 closest pals is out now—it's out here.
