About Ben and Jenna
We are full time Northern Michigan residents who love the beach, boat as much as we can, chase around a 9 and 5 year old, and enjoy all Northern Michigan has to offer.
Ben and Jenna purchased this House in 2012
Why Ben and Jenna chose Traverse City
Blue Shore was empty for a few years before we bought her. We painstakingly updated her and refreshed her with a little DIY to bring her back to all of her glory. She has the most amazing Lake Michigan water views, beautiful beach and gorgeous sunrises in all of the world-believe us, we like to travel.
What makes this House unique
Can we say water views from almost every room? You bet! Blue Shore is unique that you can experience Northern Michigan nature all around you from almost every room in this 4900 square foot house.

We really liked this property! Close to town and yet out in the quiet. Very well equipped with bedding, kitchen needs and for families who need cribs and toys. We had four couples and we each had our own bathroom which is hard to find for a rental. We all thought this would be a great summer rental!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your time, Traverse City, and our home. Please come back again and thank you for the kind review!
We had a great time but we were very disappointed someone did not come out and plow the sidewalk and driveway to the house. We had to shovel our cars out. There was at least 7 inches of snow and all 3 cars almost got stuck in the driveway. Also we couldn’t get the sauna to work in the basement.
We sincerely apologize about the plowing/sauna. We are so sorry you had to deal getting stuck--this is not the kind of experience we want our guests to have and would have taken care of it ASAP. During your stay we were out of town and we usually plow ourselves but our back up person told us we only got 4 inches of snow not 7?! Also we would have loved to have known about the sauna --we would have gladly provided instructions on how to make it work. Part of our instructions is that we ask our guests to call us with issues and are always happy to help anytime of the day. Regardless, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please come back again.
Perfect for a large family
Thank you for the review! Please come back again.
Wonderful place to stay!
The entire experience renting from Ben and Jenna was a pleasure. I highly recommend this property to anyone that wants to be centrally located to experience all that Leelanau County has to offer.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, your experience, and Northern Michigan. Thank you for the review and please come back again!
It was our second time staying at this property and it did not disappoint! The home is so cozy and fit our group perfectly! We loved the location, the views of the lake and the way we felt at home! Thanks for having us!
We are so glad you stayed with us again and enjoyed the house! Definitely come back a 3rd time and thank you for the review!
