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

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

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.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you, T.K. and Family - It was wonderful having your extended family as guests and hope to see you all another summer. Kiteboarding! We'll have to try that ourselves! Kind regards, Kim

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.

We had a great time at this charming cottage. The beach was at our door step to enjoy every day and we saw beautiful sunsets from the porch every evening. Close to Holland and Grand Haven nothing could have been easier. Our kids loved the toys and we enjoyed the family friendly home. We had a wonderful vacation.
