About Donna Blue Lachman
My name is Donna Blue and I love living out here. I'm from Chicago but found this place in 1986 and fell in love! We added on to the house and planted trees which are now huge-- and the gardens are, well, mature and lovely. After going back and forth from Chicago on weekends I decided to JUST LIVE here,,. which I've been doing for about 13 years. I'm an actor, playwright, teacher and director. I founded and was the Artistic Director of the Blue Rider Theater in Chicago for 14 years. I spent many years of my life traveling to do research for my plays, performed all over the country and abroad and Off- Broadway. I perform at the Acorn Theater, teach drama in schools and hold retreats here on the land. I also have a little theater company I've started out here called, "SECOND WIND" which is for boomers (like me) doing improvisations about our lives, and turning them into plays for the community. GREAT FUN!! I have lived in Haiti, Poland, and trekked in Nepal (to just name a few.) I have been blessed with many people who welcomed me into their homes and treated me wonderfully. Now it's my turn to host and I'm excited to share this beautiful place with others. I do all the gardening and landscaping which I consider a privilege.
Donna Blue Lachman purchased this House in 1987
Why Donna Blue Lachman chose Three Oaks
From the moment I walked on this land I felt it was very special. I knew the Potawatami Indians lived all along the river which borders the western part of the property. Everyone who comes here to visit or vacation tells me they feel the wonderful energy too. I try to keep it going.
What makes this House unique
What most people love about staying here, is that it feels so far away from everything, yet close to great restaurants, theater, cinema and the BEACH!

We loved our time at Donna’s bucolic retreat in this gorgeous section of Michigan. The property is long on charm, wildflowers, and birdsong, and the house is very cozy and well equipped — perfect for relaxing.
We had a great time making elaborate dinners, preceded by drinks on the lawn, and followed by stargazing and hot tub soaks. Our dog had the time of her life!
Bring your bikes and peddle over to Twin Maple Farm for some just-picked fruit.
The town of Three Oaks, just an 18 minute drive, to eat at Froehlich’s and Viola, sip a cocktail at Journeyman Distillery, and catch a show at The Acorn Theatre or a film at Vickers Theater.
Great vacation once again
We love vacationing here as a family. It is so cozy and Donna is a great host.
Beautiful property. Donna was very kind and accomodating of our group. Would go back for sure!
Cozy and secluded
The home gives a vibe like you have been here before. The home is unique and warm with amazing decorations. The backyard is absolutely gorgeous and extremely open. Once you sit in the back yard it's only you and the sounds of frogs in the pond. You felt as if you found a little bit of paradise with all the lightingbugs flickering in the moonlight. I highly recommend anyone to come in and stay! The owner is very polite and extremely friendly! :)
Probably the most poetic review we’ve ever received.
Thank you Edir!
Very peaceful to be staying at Blueberry Fields. I'm an artist and loved all the small things to look at! The grounds (and bird's songs were like a meditation. Thank you, Donna for opening up your doors to us!
Had a perfect peaceful weekend. Beautiful grounds and Donna is an awesome host. Our dog loved running around the yard chasing Freida and the chipmunks. Within 30 minutes to everything that SW Michigan has to offer. The house is a classic Michigan cottage and Donna has filled it with unique art and collectables from her travel's around the world. Sitting on the porch while listening to the rain fall and watching the Bluebirds flying around is pure heaven. This is Donna's home that she has opened up for all to enjoy and not your typical income focused rental property. It is Pure Michigan and was perfect!
