Elegant family home on Lake Michigan

Be our guests in this exquisite home, and enjoy the vacation of a lifetime!

Once here, you will quickly understand that this home was never meant to be rented as it has the deliberate feel of a cozy family retreat. The 5,000 square-foot beach house is nestled on a wooded dune with 100 feet of private and secluded sandy Lake Michigan beach. Walk across a ravine by footbridge, go down 75 steps, and you’ll find yourself on the beautiful beach of Lake Michigan.

Up at the house, enjoy relaxing, socializing, or private time on the oversized, wrap-around front porch. This will probably be the place where you spend most of your time. Cozy up with a good book or watch the sunset.

There are three master suites — one on each floor for maximum privacy. Each suite has its own full bathroom.

There are also three additional bedrooms with a shared bath for more guests. The main floor has an open, well-stocked gourmet kitchen, a spacious dining room, and a living room with a gas fireplace. The lower level has a media and game room with a large flat screen TV, a professional ping pong table, and a Golden Tee video game.

* This is a custom-built home with many high-end amenities. Therefore, we prefer certain clientele who will appreciate the amenities and care for them as if they were their own. The security deposit will be strictly enforced for any damage or excessive cleaning needs. We do not allow pets or fireworks, and smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property. Thank you.

* Lake levels have been highly affected over the last year. We cannot guarantee the lake levels for the summer of 2022. We do have two public beaches nearby that our guests can use as well. The pictures used here are from late May 2020.

    This was our second visit to Big Blu and we’ve already booked for next year! The home is lovely, the sunsets stunning, and the beach beautiful… a perfect destination to have it all. Our favorite two places, however, are the sunroom where the first to rise meet for coffee and read or to connect and talk about the day to come, and the large porch overlooking the lake. We spent hours playing games, relaxing, catching up with each other, and creating memories to last a lifetime.

    Our review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the incredible hospitality and service provided by Rochelle, Melanie and team! Not only were they super responsive but they would bend over backward to assist with any need that arose. And what fun they were to talk with!! A fantastic and inspirational team!

  • Spacious home with an amazing view

    Big Blu is a wonderful home that allows for a large group to stay comfortably with enough room to find some time for solitude. The large covered porch is the perfect place to gather, read and relax. Our kids loved the beach and playing in the waves. There is also lots to do in nearby towns. Importantly, the property managers are extremely friendly and responsive.

  • We had a group of 8 adults and four children 6 and under.

    Big Blu was a delightful venue for our family to enjoy a week together. Everything worked out very well for us. We enjoyed the beach, the large porch where we ate all of our meals at the picnic table, and the magnificent Lake Michigan sunsets! The kitchen was great, well equipped and a perfect spot for preparing some delicious meals. The bedrooms worked out well and the kids enjoyed the video games in the basement. Every evening after sunset the adults enjoyed a movie in the basement. The house was big enough for everyone to enjoy some privacy and layed out well enough to feel cozy. It’s an ideal location to enjoy all the State of Michigan has to offer on the west side of the state: beautiful lakes, sand dunes, quaint cities, sunsets and star gazing.

    We had a problem during our stay which showed the strength of the management team! The dryer went out during a pandemic when appliances are in short supply. The washer and dryer were replaced during our stay. The management kept us informed as they shopped, replaced and installed the new ones. They provided fresh towels to ease the checkout process and the workers were very courteous, wore masks and did their best to stay out of our way. I highly recommend the property and the management! We are planning on coming back!
