Overview

About the property

5 BR/5 full baths w/ Private Beach Front, sleeps up to 12

Blue Shore is your perfect vacation home that sleeps up to 12 people. You will enjoy the large and open feel of this home styled in beach cottage chic but with today's modern amenities. Located just 5 miles from downtown Traverse City on Leelanau Peninsula, Blue Shore offers private waterfront, comfortable home with water views from almost every room, and amazing sunrises that you will remember for years to come!

Blue Shore is an expansive home perfect for large families, couples retreats or the girls/guys get away weekend with views of the bay from almost every room.

Right when you walk in, you are immediately greeted by a 2 story open concept with windows everywhere. The open feel extends into the kitchen, dining, and living room area all overlooking large doors that open to let the lake breeze in.

The kitchen has all amenities, including a double oven and granite counter tops. It opens directly to dining area that has a large table that can seat up to 8 people comfortably. Kitchen and dining area open to the living room that has a large couch perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views or watching TV on the 52 inch flat screen above the stone gas fireplace. Step outside on the decks overlooking the beach and water to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or late night glass of wine.

Down the hall off the dining area is a full guest bathroom plus a laundry room with washer/dryer. 1st level also features a master bedroom with private bathroom, king bed and large doors with private deck to take in the water views. 2 additional bedrooms, 1 with queen & 1 with full beds, share a private jack and jill style bathroom.

2nd level has a large master bedroom with king bed, private bathroom and doors that open up to a private deck. Upper level has 2 living areas with stone fireplaces and large doors that open to let more fresh air in. This space is perfect for extra sleeping or kids' play area. It even features a wet bar! 2nd level houses a dormer with 2 twin bunk beds for a total of 4 sleeping spaces.

Basement level has a large sitting area with a TV and another stone fireplace, another full kitchen and another full bathroom with sauna. It is perfect not have to run up and downstairs to main area all day as it has large doors that open right outside to your own private beach. We just opened up the wine cellar with a large table to enjoy intimate dinners and wine tasting.

Beach area is just a few steps down from house. With water levels high there isn't much sand but you can still walk down and wade in the beautiful water. Launch your kayaks or paddle boards from the dock or enjoy the sitting area to watch boats drive by. Dock is removed from mid-September through early/mid May due to winter weather; otherwise it should be ready for your enjoyment.

Blue Shore is the ideal 'Up North' retreat. Not only can you enjoy your own private beach but her location is perfect for day trips....go wine tasting, explore Suttons Bay, check out the Dunes, golf or ski-depending on the time of year, shop downtown Traverse City, drive along the famous M22, and so much, MUCH more!

Have more than 12? Consider renting Blue Shore Cottages right next door. Rent out both properties for your family or friend get togethers. Contact us for more details. https://www.vrbo.com/996062

About Ben and Jenna

We are full time Northern Michigan residents who love the beach, boat as much as we can, chase around a 6 and 2 year old, and enjoy all Northern Michigan has to offer.

Ben and Jenna purchased this house in 2012

Why Ben and Jenna chose Northern Michigan

Blue Shore was empty for a few years before we bought her. We pain stankingly updated her and refreshed her with a little DIY to bring her back to all of her glory. She has the most amazing Lake Michigan water views, beautiful beach and gorgeous sunrises in all of the world-believe us, we like to travel. We bought Blue Shore to eventually live in full time but for now, we get to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

Can we say water views from almost every room? You bet! Blue Shore is unique that you can experience Northern Michigan nature all around you from almost every room in this 4900 square foot house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gymnastics weekend

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of a better way to wake up than with a sunrise over the bay! We had 4 families, 8 adults and 6 kids. The accomadations were perfect! Plenty of space for the kids to do their thing and space for the adults! The open layout of the house is perfect for multiple families. We fished off the dock and made s'mores by the fire. The house was well stocked with everything you should need. The weather was even great! Our families became closer and talked about doing in all again! Thank you for sharing your home! Our gymnasts did awesome at their State Meet! Thank you!!!

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The home was extremely clean, the kitchen was fully-stocked, and everything was very easy to find. The owners were so hospitable and very, very easy to get a hold of. Would recommend this property to anyone.

Very nice waterfront property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Shore house Jan 26th through Jan 29th. We had a great time. The house has plenty of space to spread out for a large group but also has a great open two story kitchen that could accommodate our entire group at one time. The view is unbeatable as the deck is very close to the water. The house is also well stocked with linens and supplies plus has a second kitchen in the lower level.

place was beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Place was perfect for our groups needs. We all said we wish we could have enjoyed sitting outside with a cup of coffee. The sunrises are beautiful. Beautiful place just needs a little fixing up. Owners were gracious and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
