Property type cottage

Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

In this quaint two-bedroom cottage atop a bluff, you’ll scarcely be able to escape the stunning Lake Michigan views that surround it. From the moment you arrive throughout every aspect of your stay, the Great Lake will be within eye shot, and you’ll feel all the more relaxed for it.

Popular with small families and couples, Bluff’s Cove sleeps up to six. Convene in the open living area, where the living room meets the dining room and kitchen. Light a fire in the wood stove on chillier days, and watch TV and play board games on rainier ones. When the weather’s great, get outdoors. Enjoy a bonfire in the side yard, watch an immaculate sunset on the wraparound deck, or stargaze in the hot tub.

This lakeshore cottage rental is perfect as a summer getaway as well as a cozy place to enjoy a crisp fall vacation.

Beach Update: This lakeside spot has incredible views to be enjoyed from inside the rental home or right on lake level. The “beach” is very rocky, uneven, and narrow--definitely not the best place to lay a towel. But those factors don’t interfere with the meditative benefits of being by the lakeshore and hearing the sound of the waves.

Guestbook comments from the manager

House is situated on the down slope of a dune, which makes for a short walk to the beach. The matresses are comfortable and there are a range of pillow types. The living room seats 5-6 comfortably. The furniture is well-made and enhances the decor. The home is very clean and recently painted. There's plenty of room in the side yard for kids to play. The path from the driveway to the front door is comprised of small pebbles. Dragging a suitcase and using a walker on this path were difficult. There aren't any dvds,or any complete board games. Finally there is no cell phone service for Verzion customers.

Great view, ok house, no beach

  • 2 of 5

Reviewer Comments:

The view is second to none, however the house is a bit dated. The house has very hard water which had a strong aroma and taste of iron (we bought bottled water for drinking). There was a sign on the washer/dryer that warns about the washing machine potentially staining clothes with rust. Hot Tub is old and wasn't clean. The side yard had a lot of ants and ant hills so be careful where you step. There is a staircase down to the "beach", which is a small area covered in large rocks and cement debris. If you are up for sitting on a nice porch hearing the waves crash, this place is for you. Both TVs have Netflix connection, grill was nice, and kitchen had just about everything you need to cook at home.

Owner's Response: This guest put it best, the view is second to none and if sitting on a nice porch listening to the waves crash is what you're interested in, this place is for you. Two straight years of high water level on Lake Michigan has taken its toll on the beach and we will continue to let everyone know that until the beach returns to its former glory. This home is located in a rural area on Lake Michigan and is on a well water system and the guest experience with the water is not uncommon.

Bluffs Cove, needs some maintenance work

Reviewer Comments:

Sliding doors extremely fogged up between the glass pains, and screen completely ripped top to bottom on sliding door so unable to use screen since there is a huge amount of gnats outside. This ruined our viewing lake from inside. Expected much better maintenance for the price of rental. Paint needs touched up inside and out. Water has lousy taste and smell, drink bottled water instead. Lake view was excellent and sunsets beautiful. Our rental agency service was excellent and outstanding and would use them again.
