A short 5 minute walk to the quiet/private Association beach of Lake Michigan. Only for owners and guests.
Plenty of trails for hiking, bird watching and biking within minutes from the property. This area is gorgeous in spring, summer, fall, and winter!
Location from Chicago is only 1 hour and 30 minutes from downtown - an ideal weekend escape to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

NEW KITCHEN (DISHWASHER), BATHROOM,

The home is irresistably charming and newly redecorated. All linens and towels are provided, as well as all cooking utensils for great at-home family meals and barbecues! Includes charcoal, firewood for the fire pit, coffee and filters!
Free Wi-FI, Satellite TV, VCR/DVD, washer/dryer.
The home also has a large private yard (fenced in at the front of the yard, the remaining yard is surrounded by woods and landscaping) perfect for children & pets. The neighborhood is very child safe and pet friendly. The house has games, books, puzzles, and satellite TV.
Don't leave your dog at home! We DO Allow DOGS, but no cats.(Pets are considered on an individual basis). So, if you are averse or allergic to animals, this is NOT the home for you.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING.
We do not rent to anyone under 25.
ALSO-most all of the homes in the area access the beach via 50-60 stairs, as we are located above the dune. If you are elderly or disabled, this home is probably not going to work for you due to the stairs down to the beach (but, the house is all on one level).

We have owned a home on this lane for over 20 years and love the peaceful nature of the area. We take pride on keeping the integrity of the area as natural as possible while enjoying the amenities of a cottage. And in the summer, we spend most of our time on the private lane owned beach!
Why Owner chose Lakeside
We love the location of this house because it backs up to a wooded area that will never be built upon. A little stream runs way back there and the animal and bird viewing can be exciting. And the proximity to the beautiful Lake Michigan beach is an extra added bonus!
What makes this Cottage unique
Peaceful surroundings, occassionally seeing deer in the lot across the way, bird watching, being the only one walking on the beach.......It's beautiful! Close to New Buffalo and Three Oaks Michigan. Just sitting outside and enjoying the fresh air!

Cottage was very quaint and a great place for a family or a girls getaway weekend or just a few people who want to come up. Best part about it is it's dog friendly so you don't have to worry about not being able to take your favorite pet. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. The firepit probably is one of the nicest features. It was so wonderful to sit around the campfire at the end of October, it was still warm out, and enjoy the fire under the stars. It's very close to the beach so great during the summer months.
Thank you so much for the great review! I do have to agree that having our furry friends with us is the best! I am glad you could relax and enjoy the house. Thank you again!
Wonderful stay, planning on a return!
The Bluebird is a great property. Almost everything you could need is provided. Very nice location. Well equipped kitchen. Fun yard with fire pit and plenty of seating. 2 grills. Short walk to a very nice beach that we enjoyed almost as much as our 14 year old Lab! Leslie is a great host & quick to reply if you have questions. As others have stated, a fine place for your stay in Lakeside MI. We are planning a return next year. Thanks Leslie!
Thank you so much for the compliments and the wonderful review! It makes me so happy to know that you and your dog enjoyed the house and that you are interested in returning to the house. Please let me know when you want to return!!
Great place to enjoy the beach with your dog !
Sweet and cozy ! Close to the beach !
Would definitely stay again. .
Thank you so much for the review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you would consider coming back!! You and your dog are welcomed guests! Thanks again.
Contemporary and stylish cottage
We had a wonderful weekend at Blue Bird cottage. This feels less like a rental property and more like you are staying at a friend's home. The cottage is very well maintained, spotlessly clean and every detail has been thought through. I loved the stylish decor as well as the modern kitchen and bath that looks like they were taken from a page of Dwell magazine.
The cottage is also very close to the lake and has a nice sized yard with plenty of seating areas and a fire pit.
Lastly, we stayed during an unseasonable warm heat wave and we were very thankful for the central air-conditioning that kept the entire cottage nice and cool!
Thank you for your kind words about the house and all the details that we also care about....and glad that the AC was doing it's job!! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you felt so comfortable.
Great family vaca with dogs
We had a great family get away before school started. Cottage is fully equipped so easy to show up and just have fun. Beach was great and dog friendly. Easy drive to New Buffalo and other local places for dinners and summer ice cream. We were 2nd time renters and will be back. Thanks Leslie!
Thank you for returning to the house and enjoying it again! I really appreciate your kind words -- and that is my goal, for guests to just show up and just enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the house! Thank you again.
Bluebird cottage is a lovely home with every amenity you could ever want. Leslie has thought of everything, including beach toys, chairs, games, music, and movies. So, a rainy day inside would be quite enjoyable. The lake is beautiful with easy access just down the road. There is also lots to do nearby with places to eat and shop. Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely go back. My husband now wants to redo our kitchen like the Bluebird! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Thank you SO much for the wonderful review! It is always nice to hear that the your stay was good and that the house had all the amenities that you needed. And feel free to copy anything from our house...happy to supply what we used! Leslie
