            The Blue Spruce is a vintage home tucked away between the trees on the Indiana, Michigan border. The home sits only a block and a half from beautiful Lake Michigan. Blue Spruce offers all the modern upgrades with the feel of stepping back in time to what it felt like to vacation in Michiana back in the 70's. The home has been perfectly maintained and very well appointed with everything a beach vacation would need. What is most surprising about this two bedroom two bath home is how spacious it is. When you walk in you step into the great room with 20 foot vaulted ceilings. This is a great room to unwind after a long day at the beach. You can sit back relax and talk about the days events or play a game. This room has a full pull out couch for extra kids or a couple. Off the great room sits the two bedrooms with a bath in between. One room has two twins, and the other has a king. Off the other end of the great room is the very spacious kitchen with a dining table that sits 6. What a great way to be able to sit talk and help each other prepare a meal. There is a door off the kitchen that opens up to the patio that has a picnic table and a charcoal grill making cooking out very easy. The kitchen is equipped with all you need to cook your summer time meals. Off the kitchen is the family room. There is a set of French doors if you want to close this room off for some quiet or if you want to use it as an extra bedroom as there is a queen pull out couch. There is a flat screen t.v in this room and a dvd player so if you want to sit and relax and do a family movie night. Also having two large living spaces is nice if the kids want to bring their gaming systems and the parents want to just relax and talk you each have your own area to relax in.
