Property 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 a variety of ways to get to The Bluff House. One can arrive by car, utilizing the highways a few miles away. There is also the cross lake ferry which has three runs a day between Muskegon and Milwaukee just down the street a mile or two. One could ride their bike to the the ferry, spend day in Milwaukee and take the Ferry back, and rids their bikes to The Bluff House.The Bluff House is within 2 miles of the Ferry and 20 minutes of Michigan Adventure. There are many beautiful bike trails along Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake along the dunes and through wetlands. If you are a member of another yacht club, you could come by boat, dock at the Muskegon Yacht Club, and utilize the facilities such as the bar, restaurant, and pool. Your boat will be visible from the deck of The Bluff House.

The Bluff House provides WIFI for internet and Direct TV for satlite cable. The house has Air conditioning. The cable includes full sport and premium channels for your enjoyment

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.
