About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

Step back in time and enjoy of piece of Lake Michigan history! Previously known as “The Blackstone”, this former boarding house was moved from across the street and restored by its current owners to maintain the charm and character of its past with all the modern conveniences of today. Come and create your own bit of family history at “Blackstone On The Bluff”.

The 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! The living room offers plenty of conversational seating and the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace. The library is 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 with four barstools encourages extra helping hands. Enjoy meals in the large dining room with seating for 10 and room to squeeze in a couple more.

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 bunkroom with two sets of twin bunks. The formal front staircase leads you to a large master bedroom with a king bed and views of the Lake Michigan. 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 central AC on the main level, a whole house attic fan and window AC units for the upper 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 (100 steps with several landings) leading down to 100 feet of private beach. Even the dog is allowed on the beach! (yes, this home is dog friendly but be sure to take a leash!). Wash off in the outdoor shower after a great day at the beach. 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 overlooking the water, you provide the marshmallows! For those who don’t care to traverse quite that far, enjoy the lounge 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!
