Northern Lake Michigan | M22 Lakeshore Trail



    Here's to a lifetime full of happiness
                         and love!


70 ACRES OF PRIVATE DUNES just north of Frankfort
is where you will find the idyllic setting for a unique  collection of contemporary condos, Lake Bluff Preserve,
that can accommodate approximately sixty overnight guests for your fabulous destination wedding. The Preserve usually requires a three-day minimum stay for our spring and summer seasons, but will make exceptions when possible.


Lake Bluff Preserve has become a unique wedding venue because of its private entrance, views and on-site lodging for your guests. No worries about parking, traffic, or accessibility-Lake Bluff Preserve is equipped! Many of our couples combine their wedding with a mini-vacation for family & friends, who can stay behind as they jet off to their honeymoon location, and enjoy the most scenic views northern Michigan has to offer. Let your pets run and enjoy the five fire pits on our private lakefront beach.

The homes were imagined and designed in the realm of "hotel occupancy" and offer spacious bedrooms and baths, living and dining areas and gorgeous decks offering breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. The property is truly a wedding venue beyond compare on the bluffs of Lake Michigan. Private and relaxed, if the love of the outdoors is part of your universe, you will be genuinely pleased with the photographic memories as well. Breezy dunes... Lake Michigan backgrounds... you'll have it all at your disposal.


"Allowing us to invite all of our family and friends to
stay in one location for the weekend was the best feeling. Spoiling them with their own beautiful rooms, perfect sunset views and a party allowed us to relax for the entire weekend. The winding driveway that takes you back to the condos is like a fairytale in itself. allowing you to get your adrenaline going before you see the big sight!”
