Description

Summer Rentals must begin or end on a Friday

Perched on a bluff along Lake Michigan to offer spectacular views, Blackstone on the Bluff is a favorite for family getaways.  The grounds are large enough for plenty of room for yard games, lounge chairs in the lakeside yard, a hand-built lifeguard stand for lake viewing, a fire pit area, hammock, plenty of shade trees and so many more unique features.

The home is over 100 years old and 2900 square feet so there is plenty of space for everyone. The main floor boasts a large lakeview kitchen with a large island with seating so everyone can entertain the cooks, a living room with a vintage fireplace, a cozy den for movies and games, a large dining room.

A large screened porch is the perfect location for fresh air dining or relaxing with the family, and it's easily accessed from the kitchen or the dining area.   A bedroom and half bath on the main floor rounds out the spacious main level.  The upper level is all sleeping with four bedrooms, each with its own window a/c to supplement the main level central air.  The upper level also offers two full baths.

2021 shoreline conditions:  Lake Michigan's high water levels have affected the condition of the bluff, which steep and unsafe for climbing.  A simple split rail fence as been installed to mark the edge of the lawn, and because bluff conditions can change this fence marks the edge of the usable lawn.  There is no access to the shoreline or beach directly from this home.

Note: Internet service is enough to stream on a device and check emails, but not multiple streaming devices or gaming.  In this rustic location, the service should sufficient to keep you connected and entertained with a family movie.

This is a great property. We enjoyed the large yard, fire pit and bluff views. The hammocks and life guard chair are a nice touch. The kitchen is well appointed. We appreciated having paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags and dish soap. Great property for multi family. Plenty of room to be together, or spread out. The screened in back porch was a great place to gather and play games.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Blackstone on the Bluff. It is an amazing property with spectacular views. Spacious and clean. It exceeded our expectations. When we first approached the property we were surprised to see some growth from the gutters; however don't let that deter you. It is well maintained on the inside and the views from the kitchen and screened in outdoor porch are lovely! The kids spent hours on the tree swing and lifeguard chair. The fire pit was perfect more smores. We all loved the hammocks! We all enjoyed the time we had there...even our two goldens! We would absolutely stay again. Thank you!
