Beach

Does relaxing and playing on a beautiful white sand beach bordering the clear blue waters of Lake Michigan sound like your cup of tea?  We have just the place for you! L’Arbre Croche is blessed with one of the best beaches in the world, and it is without a doubt the best beach in Little Traverse Bay. Surrounded by rolling dunes, our private beach is out the front door for many of our homeowners and an easy walk from all residences.

Our own Beach House Grill is opened for lunches, snacks, ice cream and more during the season. Food service is available from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., seven days a week. During inclement weather, the grill is closed. The 2015 Beach house season begin Friday, June 26th and runs daily , weather permitting, through Sunday, September 6th, 2015,

Our beach area is well appointed with a large deck, tables, grills for personal use*, bathrooms, and lockers.  Beach chairs are also provided on a first come first serve basis.

A swim area is marked off in front of the Beach House, and there is also an area designated for small boats.  There are some restrictions on boat sizes, and sailers must step the mast on their boats each night  night so as to not impact the view from residences and to mitigate noise of halyard clanging against the mast.

Family Picnics at the Beach ~ Every Tuesday Night. Whether you’re a member, a guest, or a renter, please join us for our traditional Tuesday evening family picnics.  Bring your picnic supper to the beach and visit with your friends and neighbors.

Grills will be available on the deck at the beach daily except for these Saturdays: July 18th and August 8th, 2015.
