Downsize to northern Michigan lifestyle
Enjoy the allure of Northern Michigan
When it comes to retiring, the less stress the better. At The Bluffs, we do everything we can to help our neighbors retire as easily as possible.

Our northern Michigan resort-like community has much to offer active adults 55 and older including a vibrant community and low maintenance home ownership.

Located near Lake Michigan, The Bluffs on Manistee Lake is close enough to major cities and popular tourist destinations, but far enough removed to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle.

“Many of our new neighbors have adult children and grandchildren that live in more populated areas of the state,” said Barry Murray, property manager. “Living at The Bluffs offers a resort-like lifestyle that isn’t too far away from family and friends.”

The Bluffs has brand new homes featuring 2 or 3 bedrooms with fresh interiors, garages and  porches starting at a $125,000. Click here to see some of the homes available.

"Retirees are reconsidering the idea of keeping the “big” house and finding a second home in warmer climates," Barry has noticed. "Living at The Bluffs on Manistee Lake whether it's full-time or to keep cool during the summer months — allows people to downsize comfortably and still afford to keep a winter residence elsewhere, if they choose."

Barry really enjoys beautiful Northern Michigan in the winter. Active home owners enjoy local trails for winter pursuits like snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, etc.

If you've been thinking about making The Bluffs on Manistee Lake your new Michigan address, now is the time to act. Prime bluff lots are still available, but going quickly. Order your custom factory-built home now for spring move in and summer enjoyment!
