My family of 15 used the pool every day. The house is very family friendly. Highly recommend for large groups.

The house was everything we needed for a special family weekend. Even though the weather was COLD and a bit rainy it didn't matter a bit. We enjoyed the fireplaces, pingpong, PacMan and just hanging out together.

The home was exactly as pictured! Very spacious and way more than enough room for 4 adults and 7 children. Even though the weather wasn't the greatest, our families were able to enjoy the jacuzzi and indoor activities! The house was very clean and it was equipped with everything that you may need (dishes & utensils for 20+ people, appliances, plenty of towels and blankets).
We had a fantastic trip and we are looking forward to coming again!

This was a lovely place for a long weekend! Everything was as described and the downstairs hangout room was even cooler than we thought. We had no problem with any of the facilities and had a great time!

This house is beautiful from when you walk in... gorgeous living room, kitchen & living space in basement. Outside of that, everything needs a renovation & a major update. For the price that we spent on the home, it was definitely not worth it. Fire place doesn't work in the living room (major disappointed on a fall trip), outdoor seat cushions smelled musty so didn't even use them... they claim to have a local beach within walking distance that isn't closed, as well as a playground, but we never found either. Had to call maintenance to deliver propane tanks... it was just one thing after another, and again, maybe if this was HALF the price, I wouldn't be complaining.
For utensils - plan on bringing extra silverware if you have a large group, as well as extra paper towels and toiletries.
Outside of house has paint peeling, which did not give a relaxed vibe when outside enjoying the day. I could go on and on, but overall I think this house needs some TLC.
Go elsewhere if you want an overall luxurious feel.
Thank you for staying with us, Jade, and thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We are sorry for the inconvenience experienced due to the malfunction of the fireplace, as we intend for guests to utilize all amenities offered. Feedback regarding guests' particular preferences is always considered and passed along to our local manager to review to make necessary upgrades for future guests’ pleasures and comforts. We hope you’ll give us another chance to host your next stay. Thank you!

Rented this place to celebrate my grandma's 98th bday. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The pool/hot tub were well maintained and the game room basement kept the younger ones entertained for hours. The kitchen has a nice open layout and lots of seating for all of us. The only downside I could think of is that we ran out of shampoo (they provide a small hotel sized shampoo tube that ran out).

The "Good" - This is a great home for a large group! We had 13 people (ranging in age from 3-75 years old) and 1 dog, and we had plenty of space. The pool is awesome (we brought some of our own inflatables), and it ended up being the main attraction for the week. Everything was in working order, and there were plenty of blankets, towels, and sitting space. We took the golf cart out on a couple of occasions, and used the outdoor seating area in the backyard on most evenings (the little firepit was perfect for s'mores!).
The "Not-So-Good" - The group who was in the home before us didn't leave until noon on the day we were to arrive for 4pm check-in (check-out is at 10am). When we arrived, the 1 girl who was cleaning was pretty overwhelmed as the place was literally left in shambles. There was food, crumbs, debris, and "stuff" all over the floors, counters, tables, and front porch. She was cleaning until 6:30pm before we were able to fully settle in and begin unpacking our cars. Unfortunately, due to the mess left from the group prior, there were many fruit flies in the house that took us most of the week to get rid of. Bring your own toilet paper, paper towel, garbage bags, and dishwasher soap/pods as the home offers a starter supply only. Also, for a home offering to house a group of up to 15 people, there should have been more forks and spoons available (there were maybe 8 forks, and 6-8 spoons). If everyone wants to sit down to eat together, it's not possible if you need cutlery for the meal.
Overall, we had a fantastic week as a family at Mac's Bluff, and made many memories. It is situated in a great location - easy to get to New Buffalo and Michigan City in just minutes which was nice as well :)
