Glenn Haven Shores estate description

**Stay 2 nights through November 2, 2014 and get an additional night free.

Stunning, Remodeled, Historic Lakefront Home Between Saugatuck and South Haven!

Step a bit back in time and enjoy of piece of lakeshore history! Previously known as “The Blackstone”, this former boarding house was moved from across the street to enjoy its retirement on Lake Michigan. Restored by its current owners to maintain the charm and character of its past, you will still find all the modern conveniences of today. So come and create your own bit of family history at “Blackstone On The Bluff”.

Upon entering you will immediately feel the warmth and comfort this home has to offer. The light and bright interior is tastefully decorated to honor the times of past and the simple and fresh beach lifestyle, you’re encouraged to kick off your shoes and relax!

Adults will be drawn to the large living room with plenty of conversational seating and the warmth of a wood burning fireplace. The library offers a nice private retreat to settle in with a book or movie at the end of the day. The main gathering place is sure to be the large modern kitchen with a row of counter to ceiling windows overlooking Lake Michigan. The large center island (4 barstools) encourages extra helping hands. Enjoy meals in the large dining room with seating for 10 and room to squeeze in a couple more.

The versatility of bedding will appeal to a multitude of families and groups. There is one bedroom on the main floor with a Queen bed. An additional Full Sofa Sleeper is available in the Library with doors to close it off for privacy. Choose between two sets of stairs to get to the second level. Kids will be sure to favor the back stairs that drop them right in the Bunk Room with two sets of Twin Bunks. The formal front staircase leads you to a large Master Bedroom with a King bed with views of the lake. The final two spacious bedrooms offer a Queen bed or Two Twin beds. Open the windows to let the waves and gentle breeze lull you to sleep (this home offers a whole house attic fan and window AC units in the bedrooms). Two remodeled bathrooms are available on this floor as well, one with a walk-in shower and the second with a tub/shower combination.

Transitioning from inside to out, a favorite spot for all is sure to be the large screen porch. Many meals and casual conversations are sure to be shared throughout your stay. From here one can enjoy the activity in the large yard and views of the lake. The beach is just steps away with 100 steps leading down to 100 feet of private beach. You can even take the dog (yes, this home is dog friendly--just bring the leash!). Just in case you did not get enough beach time in during the day, complete your evening with some star gazing and a fire up on the bluff, you provide the marshmallows! For those who don’t care to traverse quite that far, enjoy the reclining chairs along the house with expansive views all along the lakeshore.

Located just 10 minutes north South Haven and 15 south of Saugatuck, you are conveniently located to endless opportunities for dining, shopping and galleries!
