Jane at Eagles Nest purchased this cottage in 2005
In historic Bluffton neighborhood, the best location in the City of Muskegon, sandwiched on a narrow peninsula between Lake Michigan beach and Muskegon Lake.
Eagles Nest cottage is the only rental cottage on famous Pigeon Hill, where neighbor children play on the huge dunes and pigeons roosted. Although it's only 12 stair steps from street level, no one else lives up there, and even the air seems different -- fresh, and on a windy day you can hear Lake Michigan waves. Miles of forest dune is the view north, and it's all yours while you are there.
Eagles Nest has the best of both worlds--away from it all on the dune, and just 12 steps down, you have access to all fun, beaches, highways, necessities, and quick trips to other beach towns.
Shady patio 2 is on a forested dune where you have privacy and feel like you are living in nature yet can see your parked car below. Just 12 steps down where your car is parked is the friendly neighborhood, so you have the best of both worlds--living in nature and conveniences of the city. Furniture chosen by award-winning designer for comfort and charm.
We had such a nice time at cozy Eagles Nest Cottage! It was clean, cute and well furnished/decorated. True to it's name, it was very cozy. It's close to the lake on a wooded sand dune, on our first morning there we were greeted by 3 deer which were just feet away from us! We had a great time at Michigan Adventure and at the beach, and we took a boat cruise on Lake Muskegon and through the channel to Lake Michigan. Our 4 and 6 year olds loved it!
Our family of four enjoyed the three nights we spent at the Eagles Nest on our way to Chicago. The place was immaculate and very close to the amazing beach nearby. Although you could easily walk, we drove in order to have easy access to beach toys etc. We were only there for three days but we managed to do more than just spend time at the beach. We loved lounging at the cottage and spending the evenings by the fire. We also went to the USS Silversides submarine museum which the whole family enjoyed. We went to Ryke's bakery for their famous doughnuts and baked goods. We went to the Lakeside Emporium which is a very impressive candy store. We ate at Dockers and Bernie O's Pizza which were both excellent places to eat. On our last night we went to Getty's Drive In which was only $5.00 per person on Tuesday nights and was a very fun night. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a cozy and clean place to stay. It is close to one of the nicest beaches I have ever been to. Jane is also wonderful to deal with and is very happy to answer any questions about what the area has to offer.
Wife and I love this location. This was our fourth time staying on the property and we loved it just like the prior visits mainly because of its location to the beach. It is a clean property inside and out. The kitchen is small and the bathroom is small but we managed. We enjoyed cooking our own meals on site instead of staying in a hotel or bed and breakfast. We recommend it for couples but not for larger groups. There is also a Meijer close buy and other supermarket. The beach location is by far the greatest part of this stay.
This property is located in a great location near the beach. The cottage is super cute and well decorated. We stayed with two kids and two adults. The pull-out couch was uncomfortable my kids said, the bed was comfortable.
We stayed in August 2016 for 4 days for a family wedding.
Jane has everything there you could want in a kitchen and a cottage, the only thing that we did not have was any toilet paper as we ran out immediately and had to find a store asap.
The only downfall on this cottage is the size of the bathroom, it is extremely small and I mean small. I am an average build woman and I could not move at all in the shower, I could not bend over to shave my legs--if you are a large person you will not fit in the bathroom and will not be able to fit in the standing shower.
I called Jane before our stay and she was very gracious.
This is a great area to vacation at.
The Cozy Eagles Nest offers the best of Muskegon's beach life in a small package. Perfect for a couple or small family, this one bedroom loft cottage is perfectly situated in the Bluffton community. A short walk to either Pere Marquette beach or Muskegon Lake makes your summer stay a breeze. This clean and quiet retreat, from its charming and functional decor to its amply stocked kitchen, will provide the perfect home base for any vacation and its outdoor patio area is perfect, both for entertaining or for those quiet moments with nature. Mrs. Shapka is a pleasure to work with and is eager and responsive, making your stay as convenient and easy as possible. We loved our week at the Cozy Eagles Nest and highly recommend this vacation property! Thank you, Jean, for a wonderful week; we hope to come back again!
The house was cute,cozy,private and spotless. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't supplied. The air conditioner in the sitting area was all we needed to stay cool.Jane let us know that if we needed anything she was a phone call away. We saw a few deer and our first time seeing black squirrels. Very interesting!
What a great location! A short walk to beautiful Pere Marquette beach and Lake Michigan. Lake Michigan is so impressive. We saw several beautiful sunsets while we were there and managed to get some great pictures.
Easy access to several nice restaurants. We had a family reunion at Dockers.Great food and atmosphere. Ate perch for the first time at Hennesseys.Very good!
One day we took a ride to the Silver Lake dune area . We went on a dune buggy ride and had a lot of fun. We stopped at a farm stand on the way back and bought a delicious cherry streudel.
We would definitely stay at the Eagles Nest again if we were to visit beautiful Michigan .Great spot!
My husband and I booked the Cozy Eagles Nest for an anniversary weekend trip, since we got engaged at the Pere Marquette Lighthouse. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! The house was clean, cozy and beautiful, the kitchenette kindly stocked, the location absolutely perfect for spending every evening out on the Lake.
The guestbook filled with menus and ideas of things to do was a lovely touch as well. Jane has thoughtfully prepared the perfect getaway nest. :) The cottage definitely made the trip! Kudos to Jane for providing a lovely place for travelers to come relax and enjoy Muskegon. We will definitely be back!
