Baldwin, Lake County, Michigan
The Blue Spruce is a newly constructed cottage that will amaze you the second you walk in the door! Awesome attention to detail in this rustic feeling yet modern getaway. Tucked away between, and with deeded access to, Big Star Lake, Basford Lake and Lake Cecilia. There is also a beautiful view of the large pond that sits down below the cottage. The Blue Spruce is in the perfect location. Once inside you will find a beautiful open concept that is awesome for entertaining or just hanging out with the family. High end appliances, beautiful tile, and a huge island supported by a tree trunk! The main floor bath is very spacious and the main floor bedroom is beautiful as well with exposed beams and a very comfortable queen bed. As you make your way up the handmade staircase you will enter to the loft area which is a great space for kids! The... Read more

The beds are awful. There is one bedroom that has a queens size bed and it was fine. The rest of the beds in my option would be fine for children, but not for women or men. We called to let them know the other bed was a only the box spring and there was no mattress. His reply was...

Management response:

This review is irritating and laughable at the same time. First, we let this group add a 7th person at the last minute for NO additional charge AND told them it would be a tight fit. Second, how does an adult not know the difference between a mattress and a box spring. This person calls me and is upset that...

The cottage is exactly as advertised - new, clean and comfortable. Everything you need is provided. The very large pond at the back of the property is a great wildlife sanctuary. Lots of red headed woodpeckers flying in the trees nearby. Enjoyed the fire pit out front. Lots of activities available - nearby golf, trail access to North Country National...

My wife, two boys (ages 14 & 10) and I just returned from a 3 night stay in this cabin. This was a fantastic place for us to stay for our first time visiting the area! While we didn't do much more than drive around part of Big Star Lake, it's very close by this cabin if that's part of...
