Bluffton Harbor Cottages: 10 Advantages of choosing Eagles Nest Cabin and Redbird Cottage Home
- BOOK ONLINE INSTANTLY - spend time dreaming about your trip, not calling back & forth.
- PERSONALIZED SERVICE - Pick owner Ed's brain for unique things to do that only locals know.
- LEARN LOCAL HISTORY SECRETS AND BECOME A LOCAL AFFILIATE! - Bet you can't guess the risqué profession of one of the original owners of Redbird. What secret element kept him alive for 100 years, and where is it still located? Who trod the paths on the wooded dune of Eagles Nest? Stay and find out!.
- GREAT LOCATION - Experience ultimate relaxation on a peninsula between Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake - Bluffton Neighborhood, where everyone wants to move in but hardly anyone leaves! No bridges, no traffic jams. If you are a member of a reciprocating Yacht Club, it's only a short 2-block jaunt to Muskegon Yacht Club.
- LIVE LIKE A LOCAL - on the way to the beach, strike up a conversation with friendly, authentic artists, musicians, self-employed entrepreneurs, naturalists, retirees, and working folk. No mansions here, just real people.
- WALK OR DRIVE 3 SHORT BLOCKS TO FABULOUS AWARD-WINNING CLEAN BEACH - Pere Marquette beach at Lake Michigan is a pristine beach with sugar sand, the kind that brushes off without residue, and no rocks, salt, shells, or dangerous sea creatures. Unwind with cool, soothing breezes. Because you're not on the beach, you won't have to worry about the kids slipping out the door directly into the water.
- WE KEEP YOU UP-TO-DATE ABOUT THE LATEST ACTIVITIES! - You won't find references to activities or businesses that no longer exist - we keep informed so you won't be disappointed by arriving at a defunct place.
- YOUR STAY, YOUR WAY - calm down with sun, sand, and water on the beach or get fired up! Enjoy awesome fishing off the channel or haul in a huge fish from the boat of a professional captain. Tour WWII submarine tour, try the dune climb and forest boardwalk to Lake Michigan, and see an impressive display of how and why sand dunes formed, all at Hoffmaster State Park. Sail on the Princess excursion boat, Milwaukee-Muskegon Cross Lake Ferry. Tour 3 ships, rental a canoe and explore the mighty Muskegon River just across the Causeway. Visit the local museum, fantastic art museum, and enjoy live symphony and theater in season. You will feel at home with our chain grocery stores, many chain and unique restaurants, two malls, and excellent medical services. You'll be close to US-31 and I-96. WHEW! - and that's just for starters.
- NEAR THE LARGEST AMUSEMENT PARK IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN! - it's only 13 miles (28 minutes) to the 250 acres of Michigan's Adventure and Waterpark, with their famous Shivering Timbers wooden coaster and WildWater Adventure, owned by Cedar Fair. And to think that we went there when it was "Deer Park" - local man makes good!!! Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp (BLFAC) is slightly closer and gives occasional free public concerts.
- BUSTLING BEACH TOWNS ARE NEARBY FOR A CHANGE OF PACE - It's a 12-minute drive to Grand Haven to explore cute shops, packed beaches, and shoulder-to-shoulder people on the sidewalks - makes you appreciate the non-touristic, breathing space of Muskegon. A bit south, you'll enjoy Dutch Village in Holland, Michigan, more Dutch than people from The Netherlands are. Farther north, crowds thin but the excitement continues - unique water stream for young children, dune buggy rides, and more.
