THE SPACE
Enter into The Bluff House’s inviting foyer where vaulted wood ceilings, huge windows, and thoughtful updates throughout create seamless social spaces perfect for entertaining and lake gazing. The living room is light and airy with comfy furnishings where you can unwind in the evening with your favorite show on the smart TV.

The upper-level deck is great for sunning and socializing, while the covered patio below comes complete with seating and a BBQ. Talk about the perfect place to man the grill for summer cookouts! In the evenings everyone can gather around the warm glow of the fire pit to stargaze and relive the day’s adventures.

The Bluff House's proximity to Millcreek Wilde (noted for offering one of the most private and secluded wedding day experiences in the area) makes it perfect for hosting out of town wedding guests!

We had a magical stay while taking my elderly mother to her family reunion and reminiscing about her childhood in St. Joseph and Paw Paw lake. The house accommodated all 10 of us perfectly and had enough room for a few more family members for dinner. That view from the back deck was incredible! The king beds were comfortable and seemed extra large. The bunk beds were huge and also comfortable for our college age kids. Kitchen was stocked with more than enough cookware to make a meal. The only complaint is what the other reviews mentioned, which is that the water is rusty and stinky and stained the toilets and showers. We didn’t want to wash our hair because of that, but I noticed a water softener and salt pellets which seemed to help the rust in the toilet after a few flushes and most likely wouldn’t have stained our hair. We will definitely be back if Juniper will have us!!

We stayed with our family for a weekend getaway. We all loved the place, it looks exactly as described and as you can see in the pictures posted. The BBQ and fireplace areas are a lot of fun, and the view from the balcony during the sunset is fantastic, we are definitely going back during the summertime, 100% recommended!!!

Beautiful home

Beautiful place, exceptional host. The space provided much more room than was needed for my wife and I during our 2 night retreat, however, we intend to go back in late spring to bring the kids and nanny! The large space with a wonderful view was still a relative value compared to smaller spaces with similar view. The bluffs around the area and streets leading down to the lakefront were perfect for a revitalizing morning run. The space is located within 5 minutes of downtown Watervliet and Coloma, two cute friendly little towns. 20 minutes from St Joe and Benton Harbor where we went for some other activities.

Great view from the back of the house. Plenty of backyard space for kids to play and tohave wood burning fire and best of all the smores! The kitchen was well stocked with needed utensils and tools. My only thing was the water. It is a well water and there was a lot of iron in the water. This isn’t anything to do with the management. I did like the property very much.

Esther - Thank you for your review and feedback about the water. We understand the impact this can have on a trip and appreciate your feedback. We are happy to hear that despite this you enjoyed your stay and vacation overall!
