Description

Bluffside at Groesbeck Beach is New to our Vacation Rental Program!

Extensively renovated from top to bottom, Bluffside is ready for your enjoyment!

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 to 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 property was designed with a rustic-camp-with-modern-amenities vibe! The original wood floors show many years of love including paint splatters - just the way we like it! Floors are uneven and there is no AC. However, the views and sounds of Lake Michigan just out your door cannot be beat!
  • This property is perched on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. The breeze off the lake brings with it remnants of lake water and sugar sand beach. Due to this, the floors get sandy quickly (within a couple hours of vacuuming).
  • The surrounding trees provide shade and help bring in the breeze. They are also home to a vibrant ecosystem. The home is professionally treated for pests twice a year, but a few bugs are to be expected.
  • There is no central air conditioning. However there are multiple ceiling fans throughout and the most amazing breeze off the lake. We recommend opening the sliders and windows to the screen porch to let the breeze in. 
  • We cannot guarantee the amount of beach that will be available for your stay. Due to record high water levels in Lake Michigan, there is currently less beach than usual.
