Muskegon house description

The Bluff House is perched on a dune overlooking Bluffton Bay and Muskegon Lake, on a peninsula between Muskegon Lake and Lake Michigan. The Bluffton area has a fascinating history and is a safe, friendly place to stay. It’s a place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Muskegon Lake and Lake Michigan and the surrounding dunes and forests. One can let their creative juices flow, or enjoy the work of several resident artists at local galleries in Lakeside and Muskegon. The view from the Bluff House is its finest point – 180 degree view of Bluffton Bay and Muskegon Lake. There is a large deck in the front and a small screened patio in the back. You can sit in the living room and enjoy the lake view or enjoy the surrounding trees and shrubs in the back. It’s a very secluded environment, yet it’s still in the city with all the activities an urban area entails. The Muskegon Yacht Club is directly across the street and the skippers are always looking for crew on Wednesday nights.

There are many beautiful bike trails along Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake along the dunes and through wetlands.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  The Bluff House is located across the street from Muskegon Lake and the Muskegon Yacht Club. Lake Michigan is a short 1/4 mile walk or bike ride away. There are numerous bike paths, state park hiking, sailing, charter fishing, sandy beaches for swimming and sunning. Two water parks are a 15 minute drive away. There are the usual museums, parks, Party in the Park Fridays, and several festivals to experience. Best of all - four ice cream parlors with gourmet products are 1/2 mile away. Personally, sitting on the deck with a beverage and a book, enjoying the view every now and then, is the best way to utilize The Bluff House. Fishing charter boats are 2 minutes away from the house

                  Other Activities: Free WIFI and Direct TV.
