Stevensville Airbnb made from a retired roller coaster

Hope you like the story because this house is made from a piece of it. The wood comes from the historic Silver Beach roller coaster. Silver Beach Amusement Park closed temporarily due to an increase in violent crime in the city during the summer of 1970. They attempted to reopen but struggled and unfortunately closed permanently in 1971.

Here is your history lesson of the day, let’s talk about your stay.

Don’t forget to bring bug spray as not only have mosquitoes been a pain this year, but to get to this tucked-away house you’ll have to take a wooded path.

If you’re a fan of natural lighting, you’ll love this quaint little house because it has a ton of windows. It also has two different lounges to relax in and two bedrooms with queen-size beds.

The house is also ideally located, approximately fifteen minutes from downtown St. Joseph and one mile from Grand Mere Park beach.

This chalet is so awesome it has a 4.85 star review! Here is what one of his guests had to say;

Such a neat property nestled in a wooded environment! Great layout, comfortable furniture and everything you need provided. The hosts responded quickly when we requested an extra night – which worked perfectly for our trips. I would come back without hesitating !

WATCH: Here are America’s 50 Best Beach Towns

Each beach town has its own set of pros and cons, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best to live in. To find out, Stacker took a look at WalletHub data, released on June 17, 2020, which compares US beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The towns had a population of 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From these rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will not be surprised to learn that many of the cities featured here are in one of these two states.

Read on to see if your favorite beach town has made the cut.
