Enjoy endless days along the shores of Lake Michigan on Groesbeck Beach's private 255' of Lake Michigan frontage. Tucked back, this cove of frontage boasts higher protection from erosion and offers a wide beach* to enjoy. Peacefully nestled on a dramatic, nature-filled bluff above Lake Michigan, Groesbeck Beach welcomes you with the solace, quiet, and privacy you seek.

Located in pastoral Glenn between Saugatuck and South Haven, you and your guests will find yourselves somewhere back in time as you approach the expansive compound sitting majestically at the end of a winding, coast-hugging road where it is not unusual to see a gathering of deer lazily grazing.

The property’s rich history is palpable and goes back more than 100 years. Originally built in 1903 by the Chicago Diocese of the Episcopal Church as the summer home of the Girls’ Friendly Society—a haven for young ladies who would arrive at the nearby fruit docks by boat to enjoy crafts, games, and socializing away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The property is home to two unique structures, Pine Lodge and Bluffside, both extensively updated and modernized in 2021 while retaining their historic character. Rent them together for large gatherings or separately for more intimate stays; both enjoy convenient access to 255 feet of pristine fresh-water beach. After a day at the beach, spend the evening playing lawn games or roasting s'mores around your fire pit on the expansive lawn overlooking Lake Michigan.

Spend a day or two in downtown Saugatuck or South Haven—both only 11 short miles away—to immerse yourself in the local flavor of eateries, boutiques, art galleries, and more. Just a short bike ride away, you'll find an assortment of orchards, wineries, and Waypost Brewing - one of the best up-and-coming breweries in the state. 

Unlike any property in Michigan, Groesbeck Beach is sure to leave you with lasting memories and the desire to return again and again.

Please Note
  • This is an old cottage with a wonderful history and many modern amenities. Expect comfort and quirks at the same time. 
  • Being located on Lake Michigan, the porches and floors collect sand quickly.
  • Due to the wooded surroundings, it is common to see bugs and critters both outside and inside the property. Everything is treated monthly by a professional pest company. However, if you see evidence of something inside, please let us know right away. Make sure to keep the doors closed.
  • The path to Lake Michigan is steep and not suitable for those who are uneasy on their feet or cannot manage an incline.
  • There are 2 Smart TVs and wireless internet for your enjoyment, but no cable service.
  • If you need anything, our team is available and happy to help.
  • The wood-burning fireplace is only available in the winter months. The outdoor fire pit is available year-round.

Spectacular place for large group. We had a group of 17 from 73yrs - 4 yrs old. Plenty of room. Kitchen is stellar for many cooks and dishwashers. Landscaped path to the beach was beautiful and esat to use/access. Breath taking sunsets. Pool and hot tub a big hit!

Fantastic experience from check-in to departure! We appreciated the lights left on for our arrival and the ability to text questions to the property manager. It was so nice that the property manager called just to make sure everything was ok :) The house was perfect for our large, family gathering and was well stocked with linens and paper products. We will be back to make more great memories!!

Fantastic home great for large group of friends and family or company offsite, all situated on bluff over Lake Michigan. The home is thoughtfully decorated with a nod to past but updated with current comforts and appointments, including a sauna which was a lovely surprise! Check-in and communication throughout was great! Wonderful experience from start to finish, home exceeded expectations and wife had an amazing birthday.

We couldnt have asked for a better place to escape for the weekend! The house is stunning charmingly rustic and beautifully decorated with tons of space and a dreamy screened in front porch for al fresco dining. The true gem is the private beach that is just steps away from the main house! We miss being there and cannot wait to get back.
