'Blue Shutters' is a light, charming and airy cottage on the eastern shore of Green Lake which was completely renovated in the Fall of 2010. The cottage sleeps six: 1 Queen bed in one bedroom, 2 twin bunk beds in a 2nd bedroom, and two more guests can sleep on the new sofa bed in the living room that features an easy, auto-fill deluxe air mattress. All beds, mattresses and furniture are new in 2011. Bedding and bath towels are included.
Blue Shutters features a new kitchen with an electric stove, microwave oven, refrigerator and granite countertops and an open granite island, where guests can help the chef from two stools. Kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and equipment.
There are several places to enjoy your meals, besides inside Blue Shutters. The breezy, screened in sunroom features a bench and a dining table with seating for 6 that can be easily arranged to suit your needs for dining or a fun game of cards.
If you prefer to dine outside, just through the sliding glass door from the living room is a large bluestone patio with dining for 6. This patio provides a lovely shady place to enjoy the breeze and the views of the water.
For waterfront fun, you can enjoy beautiful views of the lake from a second large bluestone patio on top of the boathouse. This is a great place to enjoy the sun and watch the kids play in the clear water. There is a gradual slope to the lake bottom in this section of Green Lake making it well suited for parents with small children. Kids love the sandy bottom and the waves!
In addition to the fully equipped kitchen, the cottage includes an outdoor gas grill.
There are several fans, an air conditioning unit and portable heating units for your comfort. The completely renovated bathroom features a new tiled shower, open shelves for towels and a small window.
Both bedrooms have closets with hanging storage, open shelving, night stands, ceiling fans and two windows.
The recent renovation has transformed this cottage into a quaint beauty. However Blue Shutters is a seasonal cottage and in the tradition of true lake cottages, the living space is a cozy 750 square feet.

Some of the best and strongest memories from my childhood revolve around the time I spent at Green Lake every summer. I am fortunate to now share summer fun with my own children on Green Lake.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009
Green Lake offers a peaceful environment on a beautiful lake with very little boat traffic. The water is pristine, and I understand there are plenty of fish. It is the perfect place to relax and create wonderful memories with family and friends
This is a place to truly unplug and get away from things for a while. Blue Shutters does have a flatscreen TV, cable and wireless access if you can't cut the cord entirely.
My wife and I stayed here last year. I had submitted a review at that time but that got lost during my submission. We were happy with the accommodations. The deck over the boathouse was our favorite place to spend time on the property. We ate some meals there, enjoyed a few happy hours" after active days. The lake is mostly quiet and is a lovely spot to just relax. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. I would love to stay here again and would recommend this cottage and the surrounding area. There is plenty to do in this beautiful area of Michigan. We had kayaks and bicycles and had plenty of opportunities to use them often. The owner was helpful and easy to deal with. Her Father amicably stopped by briefly once and was very helpful with information. This is a comfortable place to be and stay in all respects.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Blue Shutters! The moment we walked in we felt so comfortable. The interior is tastefully decorated in an inviting manner. Everything was clean. The kitchen had all we needed. The beds were comfortable. We loved being in the woods and overlooking Green Lake. We had an extremely relaxing time and would love to return!
Our family of 4 had a wonderful time at Blue Shutters. We love to cook and the kitchen was well equipped and recently renovated. Our kids (5 and 8 yrs old) loved fishing off the dock and swimming in the lake. We had a 4th of July BBQ with some family and friends and had plenty of seating for everyone. Great space on the boat house roof for relaxing, watching the kids swim and enjoying sunsets. Super clean and nicely decorated. Excellent pull out sofa with air mattress for when Grandpa spent the night! Owners went out of their way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. We will absolutely visit Blue Shutters again when we travel to Michigan!
My wife and I have been staying at Interlochen State Campground for many years, and we loved it. This year was the first year that we were all by ourselves, (no kids), so we thought we would try renting a place a little more secluded and not have to haul the pop-up and camping gear. After looking at many, many cabins and reading countless reviews, we found "Blue Shutters". Perfect! Off the road, private, right on the lake, with everything we needed, yet still close to the area we were used to. The cabin is very well maintained, with all the amenities. The owners were very professional and prompt with our inquiry, e-mails and contract. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to return to this beautiful little cabin. All the little extras made it exceptional. Thanks, Lynna.
We could not have asked for a better summer vacation rental. Blue Shutters is well appointed, exceptionally clean, and the owners/caretakers are genuine and excellent to work with. The location is great, an easy bike ride over go Interlochen Arts Academy, close proximity to grocery store, etc. We will return! Great lake access, great lake!
Blue Shutters is a beautifully decorated, quaint, and comfortable cottage; appointed with quality furniture, floral decorations, candles, and table runners. The photos accurately reflect the appearance of the property. The home is immaculate and extremely well-maintained. The property is easy to find, quiet, and at a perfect location on Green Lake with a georgeous view of the sunset every day. The property was completely rehabbed/remodeled with high quality appliances, granite countertops, indoor and outdoor furniture, gas grill, Pergo flooring, bedding/linens - all brand new. After having gone through a complete rehap/remodel of my own home; I really appreciated the detail for quality. Blue Shutters comes with all the comforts of home; including some items rarely included with rental homes such as: liquid hand/body soap, dishwash detergent, zip lock bags, napkins and Tupperware containers. The only thing you need to bring with you are your clothes and food. The owner was extremely helpful in answering our questions prior to our arrival and during our stay. She was a gracious host - making sure everything was OK. She even had her father check in on us upon arrival to make sure we were comfortable or to call him if we needed anything. A personal touch rarely found in the rental world. If you are familiar with Green Lake, you will appreciate the crystal clear water and shallow beach area - right outside your back door. If you are not familiar with Green Lake, please visit the area. We were able to explore the entire Benzie and Grand Traverse Counties from Green Lake; very well located. When we return to Green Lake, my husband and I will be staying at Blue Shutters.
