Welcome to Big Trees! We are located in Stevensville, Michigan, a short drive from beautiful Lake Michigan. At Big Trees you will find a peaceful environment and all the amenities you need to enjoy your vacation. You will enjoy the ambience of this 3 bedroom ranch home on the hill. We are on 2.5 acres of wooded solitude. The home is richly appointed with country furnishings. In the Master bedroom you will find a queen size bed fit for royalty, each of the other 2 bedrooms are outfitted with an additional queen size bed and a therapeutic twin bed, as well as plentiful closet and storage space. Additional sleeping accomodations are located in the finished basement which is furnished nicely in a modern motif. A futon, a twin roll away bed and twin pop up bed supply additional sleeping capacity. Two bathrooms are nicely appointed, the basement bathroom which is adjacent to the exercise room has a jacuzzi tub for relaxation.
Best value for amenities and beach avsilabilities
24 ft pool
2 hot tubs
Cozy house with outstanding pool and indoor and outdoor hot tubs! Copious towels and toys and equipment for enjoying the water in the house or at the lake. Kitchen equipment necessities all there, but limited specialty tools. Exercise room is a simple combo-unit. 3 bedrooms, but the finished basement is spacious with futons and couches that would be good for kids.
Location is ideal among the many wineries, breweries, etc. in the area. My wife and friends drove the five minutes to the Grand Mere State Park lot and walked the over the dunes (be careful of hot sand in afternoons!) and had a great time at the (rocky) beach. Dogs were happy with us and at the house. 15 minute drive to Benton Harbor for The Livery was great. St. Joseph nearby was nice. 20 minute drive to New Buffalo for Redamaks etc.
There was road noise of course, because house is very near 94, but the trees block the view nicely.
There was annoying construction on Puetz, but when I complained, Patricia refunded a portion. A very righteous action!
Stayed for a week with my family of 4. It was a perfect spot for my kids- 2 and 6. They loved having their own pool and hot tub while we weren't visiting the beach. The house was clean and we often used the beach towels, toys, the grill and music. Smaller beach is about 3 minutes away, we often visited for sunsets. During the day we would go to St. Joseph for Silver Beach which was about 10 minutes away- well worth it!
Thanks for having us!
House was very noisy from being right beside the interstate. Descripition does not match house. It was not very clean. You could write your name on the dust on some of the furniture. The little children's feet were dirty from walking around on the floor. The hot tubs were nice, but the pool was not very clean from being under trees. Kitchen not well stocked- only 2 pans , no mixer. etc. They were very quick to answer our problems.
We had a very nice stay at Big Trees with our multi-generational family and two dogs. It had plenty of room and everything we needed. We really appreciated the new beach towels, beach blanket, rafts and toys for our day trip to beautiful Weko Beach. We could have used a few more utensils for grilling on the charcoal grill. It is worth noting that this home is in very close proximity to I-94, to where without a fan on at night you could here the traffic. It is loud outside, but we just turned up the stereo and enjoyed the hot tub!
This place was amazing and will definitely be our go to place when we're in the st. Joseph area.
Everything was clean and comfortably slept 9 people. Our favorite part was this house didn't only have just 1 hot tub but 2!! one inside and one outside.
Thanks for the great place to stay!!!!!!!!
Big Trees had everything we needed and then some. We had our entire family including our grandson and pet dog-altogether 8 adults plus the baby and dog. The property was very clean. Any questions I had about the property were cheerfully answered by the owner. I highly recommend this property. It is located close to a semi-private beach, many restaurants and wineries. The property itself is like a private resort and the St.Joseph area has a multitude of attractions and restaurants for all tastes. The home is on a beautiful setting with a large front yard where we could play bad-mitten and croquet. The back yard has a wonderful pool we relaxed in everyday as well as the hot-tub. We ate most of our meals in the back deck area outside as it was so relaxing. It was very private and surrounded by trees and beautiful annuals and perennial flowers planted throughout the yard. We utilized the lower level to play games around the big table. We are hoping to make many returns to the Big Trees. We were not anxious to leave and would have liked to stay another week.
