Why Jimmy chose Bloomingdale
We wanted to be close to Chicago, but far enough way from it all to really 'get away.' We love the all-sports lake, private beach, place to dock the boat, Sport Court, mature trees, secluded setting (you really can't see any neighbors), hills for sledding, and more. Kids love it out here. So do adults!
What makes this House unique
Calm, quiet and peace await you! This home has all the amenities of new construction, but is set in a secluded, country setting.

Perfect Family Vacation Get-Away!
Our immediate family vacationed at this property just after the 4th of July holiday. This included 4 adult couples with 5 boys under the age of 5. We had more than enough room in the house and the amenities at this home/property is endless. This home is very kid-friendly with an array of toys and games on the main and basement floors. There are plenty of adult games too that creates a fun, yet competitive atmosphere. The home was clean and well maintained.
The outdoor sport court provided the boys (and the adults) many hours of fun! The private beach and docks allowed for a relaxing and peaceful gathering place. The lake itself is secluded, calm and very beautiful. We also rented a pontoon for 3 days from a nearby boat rental company. Launching the boat and returning the boat was flawless. We were able to tour the lake, swim and fish which was well worth the investment.
Our family had a very comfortable stay and loved everything about this property. Jimmy was excellent to work with and everything was exactly as described. We would definitely recommend this vacation destination and look forward to staying here in the future!
So very happy to have guests like your group Doug! Thank you for taking your time to provide feedback and our family looks forward to having you again soon!! We're continually making upgrades to both the home and property to make your next visit a little bit more memorable!
Great house for a large group
Our family had 20+ kids and adults and this property provided everything we needed and more! We all slept comfortably, with most families having their own room. There were lots of items in the house for little ones, which helped our group. There were enough areas in the house so that we could have several activites going at the same time at night and no one really interrupted anyone else's fun or sleep. The kitchen had almost everything we needed, and had plenty of room for several people to pitch in and prepare meals together. The screened in porch was a relaxing gathering place, as was the lake. The lighted sport court was a big hit with our active family...badminton, pickleball, basketball, wiffleball, you name it. And I have to mention the marathon ping pong games going on in the lower level game room, plus a pool game or two. There was even a weight room, though we were so busy doing other fun things outside during the day so that went unused. You will hardly need to bring anything if you rent this property because it has it all. Lastly, the owner was extremely accomodating and very communicative. We voted to come back if we get together next year.
So happy you and your group had a wonderful time! We hope you come back to see us again next year. More fun being installed in the off season!! Thanks again!!
The Family Loved it!
We had a large multi-generational family together for five fun-filled days this summer. The house included fun after fun after fun. Kids (and parents) loved the basketball court. Everyone enjoyed the beach. Owners have packed the house with games and toys for all ages. We swam, had a s'more fiesta, played competitive Hearts games and endless rounds of Horse on the basketball court. Jimmie, the owner, was responsive and easy to deal with. Quick to respond when issues arose. We drove 25 minutes to South Haven and Saugatuck for those who wanted Lake MIchigan views . But if you have younger kids, there's little need to leave the property.
We're so delighted you had a good time and hope you will choose to come visit us again next year!! Thanks again!
This house is so beautiful and perfect for a big group. The owners are amazing and have great communication. So much to do with the lake, sports court and everything else the house has to offer. We will definitely be back next year!
Always a pleasure to have such fantastic guests to help us enjoy the property!! We look forward to having you back again soon!
We have a group of middle managers and we go away each year for golf, team building and fun in the sun. The Bloomingdale resort is perfect for all the testosterone flying around. We're all very competitive and love sports. Bloomingdale gives us all we can handle; Basketball all night, tennis, horse shoes, Kayaking, ping pong, pool championships, weight lifting. Heck, we even had a contest of who made the best bon fire. Everything is right there for you and convenient at Bloomingdale. We love this house. We've even gone twice a year before. The property is warm, friendly and inviting. It's not stuffy as other properties were, so nice that we didn't want to sit down on the furniture. Bloomingdale is nice and feels like home. We sat on the floor, played video games and had a ball. The kitchen is open and user friendly. I also appreciate the "basic" supplies that people need when they come to a property. They were all there for us. The sleeping configuration is great. There are enough beds for everyone and the sleeping quarters in the lower level is fantastic. None of us could get a signal on our cell phones. At first we were bummed, but that turned out to be a positive. It presented the opportunity to really get to know each other minus the intrusive distraction of devices. Over the past ten years we've rented many homes. We'll always go back to Bloomingdale.
We are so happy to hear Charles and can't wait to have you and your group back again! Your video messages from the beach and out in the kayak during your stay really made my day!! Come back soon!
We loved the Bloomingdale house on Muskrat Lake!
We came in midweek for a 4 night stay.. What a beautiful property! With the many kids all of our families had, there was plenty of room, and lots to do. The favorite spot outside of the beach and lake had to be either the large screened in deck, or the lighted basketball court. We rented a boat nearby, and did plenty of fishing, swimming, and tubing. The water was wonderful, and the little ones enjoyed playing in the sand by the water. All of the extras, such as video games, water toys, sports equipment, etc. were an added bonus that the youngins definitely took advantage of. Would come back, and would recommend this place for large groups and families. Owner was very easy and nice to work with. Thanks for a great trip!
Awesome! So glad you guys had a great time and the house/property more than met your needs. We look forward to having you back again soon!
