Ed purchased this House in 2012
Why Ed chose Beachwood-Bluffton
The wonderful sandy beaches and the friendly community. Boat traffic through the channel is so entertaining its like watching a water parade during the day. A boater, fishermans, and beach goers delight
What makes this House unique
The smell of fresh water breezes, the boat traffic on the channel while sipping morning coffee, the fog horn in the distance on low visibility days, and seeing the joy of all those in the area knowing they are in a very special part of the world. Peaceful.

Perfect!!!! My family were very comfortable in this house! Lots of room and CLEAN! Tons of towels and blankets. We will be back this summer to enjoy the beach and to sit on the deck with my book and coffee! Ed was GREAT! I text him at midnight and he responded within seconds. And followed up with me the next day,That does not always happen. You can't go wrong with this rental !! Loved it
Beautiful views & beautiful property!
We'll be back for sure! Wonderful accommodations and enough room for all 12 of us!
Always fun stuff going on in the channel, giving us great entertainment!
Loved the home too! Beautifully decorated! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We had a wonderful stay! The property was on a perfect location between two lakes. gorgeous!!!
The house was perfect for our group. We had three families and we had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy ourselves as an individual family or as a group. The house had everything we could have possibly needed. It was in a beautiful location where we could stay and fish or just watch the boats come in and out or we could go to either the Lake Michigan beach which was amazing or a smaller lake Muskegon beach which was around the corner. Overall it was a fantastic house!!
The pics on this website do not do this house justice. It's absolutely beautiful. There were 10 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of room. The house is definitely
Fully Stocked. It has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Pretty views from the backyard. You can fish right off the deck. Then beach is very close and very clean. We all had the best time. We are looking forward to coming back next year. Ed was wonderful to deal with.
Perfect Cottage for large family
We had seven adults plus a 2 & 4 year old and a toddler. We all felt very comfortable. The ground floor has two bedrooms, a kitchen, leading area, living room and bath and a walk out to a covered patio. Second floor has two bed rooms, large living room eat in kitchen and a bath, with a large deck overlooking the channel. The third floor has a bath and bedroom. The place was fully furnished and more than enough seating inside or on the patio, the deck or the boat dock / deck on the channel. A short walk to one of the nicest beaches on Lake Michigan or a small beach on Lake Muskegon. The Change connects the two lakes and there is a small inlet inside the channel to pull in your boat. Ducks, turtles, birds and a muskrat all played in the inlet. Short walk to the two beaches, a local marina and a dockside restaurant (Dockers), a submarine museum and a retired Coast Guard Cutter. There is another restaurant on the beach on Lake Michigan. Lake Muskegon is also connected to Bear Lake so you can easily boat on three different lakes in a single day. Across the channel you have access two beaches on Lake Michigan and Muskegon as well as sand dunes to explore. If you don't have a boat it is an easy 20 minute ride through North Muskegon. Downtown Muskegon is coming alive with restaurants and breweries. On an overcast day, we took the kids to a downtown children museum while my wife saw great photo exhibit by Edward Schiller nearby. We found plenty to do on land and sea and sat around the decks and fire pit at night. Would highly recommend. Ed was a great host and very helpful.
Sounds like you were very good at ferreting out some great sites. Hope to host you again. Thanks
This property is located near (20 minute drive) Michigan's largest amusement Park & Water Park, Michigan Adventure. You can walk to a navel museum and tour a WW2 submarine. During winter months, enjoy the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex at the Michigan State Park which features an Olympic class luge, ice skating and lighted cross country skiing. Ice fishing on Muskegon lake during winter months has been exceptional. Its a short walk to the beaches of Lake Michigan or Muskegon Lake.
