Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Eric and Kim live in Evanston, IL (near Chicago) with their 3 children, but consider Bluewater and a second cottage, Bluegill their second homes.

Why the Owner Chose Trillium Shores (Port Sheldon, MI, USA):
Since 1908, many generations of Eric's family have owned and still own cottages in this association.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Nestled in the dunes with views of Lake Michigan and access to Pigeon Lake, Bluewater cottage is a special place for families to relax and make lasting memories. The beachfront is spectacular and clean, with nearby private tennis (2 newly-surfaced courts), 2 children's play areas, fishing, biking, hiking, windsurf and kayak opportunities, U-Pick blueberries, Holland’s bountiful farmers' market, and the restaurant and shops in quaint downtowns of Holland, Saugatuck and Grand Haven.
