Up to 9 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, 4 half bathrooms, sleeps up to 33 guests

A preeminent rental resort on 16 acres in Harbor Springs, Michigan

Blisswood offers stunning surroundings, vintage luxury, and an incomparable ambiance. Located on the sunset coast of Lake Michigan's famed Tunnel of Trees just north of quaint Harbor Springs, Blisswood epitomizes the beauty, grandeur and serenity of one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

Whether you are planning a family reunion, sportsmen's holiday, wedding, or corporate retreat, the unmatched atmosphere of Blisswood's lodging combined with acres of manicured grounds and woods overlooking Lake Michigan provide the perfect setting.

This is more than a place to vacation or retreat... this is your destination.

The Main Lodge: The main lodge is approximately 4000 square feet and has three upstairs bedrooms, each with its own very large full bathroom. (There are two more half-baths downstairs.) Two of the bedrooms have King-size beds while the third room offers two Full size beds. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and offer some magnificent views of the lake. The library has two queen sofa sleepers that flank the stone fireplace.

As with all of our residences, Blisswood Lodge is decorated in a luxurious north woods fashion containing many antique pieces produced by the original Bliss family. The Lodge is anchored by three stone fireplaces in the living room, dining room and breakfast room. Each of these rooms exudes a tone of sumptuous comfort that is at once homey yet refined. The kitchen is a dream combination of modernity and north woods style. A huge stainless steel oven (with a convection option) and oversized refrigerator make any meal possible. If grilling is your passion, a large, stainless steel grill sits right out on the patio.

The Moose, Perch and Merganser Cottages: Next to Blisswood Lodge, Moose Cabin is the largest of the residences. It consists of two bedrooms (one with a stone fireplace and King-size bed and one with two Twin-size bunkbeds), one bathroom, a kitchen and a very comfortable, vaulted living room with a wood burning stove. It also contains a washer and dryer.

Perch Cabin offers one bedroom with a Queen and Twin bed, one bathroom, a gracious, vaulted living room (with stone fireplace) and a small, yet very modern kitchen. A washer/dryer is also present.

Named after the beautiful Merganser duck, this cabin boasts a Queen and Double bed, one bathroom, a bar area with stools and comfortable living room decorated in the same cultured manner as the rest of our residences. As with all of our lodging, a washer and dryer are present.

The newly renovated Woodland Cottage is tucked back into the woods and surrounded by an abundance of woodland creatures. Daily visits from the deer are a highlight of this private setting. The Woodland Cottage has a large kitchen, woodburning stove, two Queen bedrooms, a family room with a futon and twin bunkbed and one and a half baths.

The Chapel and Recreation Lodge: Your accommodations at Blisswood include the recreation/conference lodge, perfect for social gatherings or just hanging out. You can shoot a game of pool, throw some darts or settle down in front of the large screen plasma television hanging on the wall. If your group needs to hold a meeting, the lodge also has a large conference table and chairs providing the perfect setting for a relaxed gathering. As in all of our buildings, there is always the opportunity to light a roaring fire and unwind in the adjoining den.

If you’re searching for the ideal setting for an intimate wedding, Blisswood boasts a beautiful, historic wedding chapel right in the midst of the grounds. Nestled amongst soaring trees with stunning views of Lake Michigan, few places can match the charm and location of our remarkable little church. Of course you could also choose to have an outdoor ceremony amidst the natural grandeur of Blisswood as well. Whatever your fancy, this is the perfect place to take your vows

We were met by Sharon, who was a very pleasant and interesting host. She showed our group around and gave a lot of history. The facilities were amazing -- such craftsmanship! Everything was very well done. The activities building was great. The beach area was really nice -- a bit of a hike, but well worth it. We highly recommend Blisswood. I re-proposed to my wife of 27 years in the chapel. Great week.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! We are pleased that you and your family enjoyed your vacation at Blisswood and we welcome you to return in the future!

My husband and I went with friends to escape the oppressing heat in FL. The weather was so beautiful (hi 70-73) and could only be matched by the beauty of the Blisswood property. We had one of the smaller cabins and our friends stayed in the main lodge. We were all blown away by how CLEAN everything is! I imagine cabins to have cobwebs here or there, but not at Blisswood. Every space is immaculate, which made it easy to relax. I will note that my cell had service (Verizon) as I could place calls, but internet was spotty.
There was wood readily available for making fires, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner. We often had lunch in one of the towns that are a little drive away through the "Tunnel of Trees".

I initially thought 6 days may be too long, but we didn't start to relax until the last day! We could easily spend a couple weeks here. It would be an incredible property for a family reunion or wedding, as there is a really beautiful little chapel on the property.

All in all, the property has a park like setting overlooking the lake, with updated high end amenities and beautiful décor and comfy furniture. You really can't go wrong staying here!

From the moment we arrived, it was as though every worry vanished. The surroundings were breath taking and the cabin was perfect! VERY clean and comfy. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized MY I did not get reception with my phone service. GOODBYE iPhones! I assumed my teenage boys might have a melt down, but to my delight, they were just as ready to "disconnect" for a few days. My 8 year old daughter played "old school" fashion, fresh air and pure fun.

Sharon, the resort manager MORE then accommodated anything we needed and was very kind. NONE of us wanted to leave!

After searching every property available on Lake MI between South Haven and Mackinac we settled on Blisswood. We rented the whole resort for a group of 28 people and it was perfect. Everyone had their own space but we could all gather together too. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Great location for lots of fun, northern MI day trips. Sharon was really helpful and easy to work with. I'd highly recommend Blisswood.

Our family reunion at Blisswood was perfect. The location is beautiful. The property extremely well-maintained, the grounds are great for families and lettting the kids roam, and the cabins were rustic but luxurious. Waking up every day with a perfectly framed sunrise over Lake Michigan at the foot of your bed isn't too shabby either. Couldn't recommend this place more. Highest recommendation.

The main lodge of this property had everything we were hoping for. It had a very upscale rustic feel. The rooms were large and beautifully restored. The views from the lodge were just amazing! It was private, gorgeous and serene. We hope to stay again and experience another season at this magical place!
