About Kim and Eric

Eric and Kim live in Evanston, IL (near Chicago) with their 3 children, but consider Bluewater/Bluegill their second home.

Kim and Eric purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Kim and Eric chose Grand Haven

Since 1908, many generations of Eric's family have owned and still own cottages in this association.

What makes this cottage unique

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 spectacularly wide 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.

Lovely cottage! We had a great girls weekend away. Beautiful view, walks on the beach, sitting out on the deck and in the screened in porch. Very clean and inviting! Two showers come in handy too.

Beautiful Sunsets

We stayed in the Bluewater Beach house during the last week of August. The weather was great minus a few short rain showers. Everyday at the beach brought a new experience. Some days were calm and warm and others were winding with large waves to play in. Both were a lot of fun. We had many small children with us and the house was very accommodating to children. They had bed rails, gates, high chairs, toys and even kids cups and plates. This is an excellent family place that will bring many memorable moments for any family.

Great Stay in this Michigan Home!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in this home for a week in late June. The owners could not have been more courteous and helpful. The home is right on the waters of lake Michigan, which on most days was our own private beach. It is perfect for small kids, very shallow a ways out. Home is situated right between Grand Haven and Holland(20 min for each). Visited both towns several days, rented SUP boards, went kiteboarding...just a great setting and location. Thank you again Kim and Eric.

Very nice cottage and location.

  • 5 of 5
Owners very helpful and thoughtful. The cottage was exactly as described. Very good beach on Lake Michigan. Nearby party store makes a good pizza. Ten-minute drive to Holland. Our 4-year-old enjoyed the Dutch Village.

Only drawback - minor one - is that the cottages two floors are connected only by outside stairways.

Family vacation/Wedding

  • 5 of 5
I rented the "Bluewater" the week before my wedding. I'm originally from NC so my family and friends from home stayed there prior to the wedding. The house was great. Great beach access. Only a few minutes drive to Grand Haven for shopping to stock up on food for the week. The area has plenty of places for walking and biking riding. The beach was beautiful as well. Most of the week we were there no more than 10-15 people would be on the beach at one time. Place was very quiet thru the day/night. Great place to relax and be with my family and friends prior to my wedding. Excellent place for a family vacation. Would recommend to anyone, and would go back myself in a second.
