Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary

Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary

Lake Bluff is a Michigan Audubon wildlife sanctuary/ facility of 75 acres on the shore of Lake Michigan just north of Manistee and Orchard Beach Sate Park. We have 1,700 feet of beach, a hiking trail thru mature forest and two other trails leading around the property and to the beach. Grounds open to the public dawn to dusk every day all year. Portions of the house, built 1936-38, are available for meetings, conferences, receptions. Available for outdoor weddings, gatherings, parties. The area around the house is an arboretum with over 70 different types of trees and shrubs. We are also home to two Michigan Champion Trees, a giant sequoia and a sycamore maple. Over 170 different types of birds have been seen on the property, we have many resident woodpeckers and eagles are frequently seen flying up the beach or perching in our trees. Bar Lake, a stone's throw down the road, hosts many types of waterfowl. Lake Bluff is a great place to stop and visit, go to the beach or have a picnic. Interpretive native plant garden coming in 2010. Ask if the Michigan Audubon bookstore is open when you visit. Stay in our Guest Room (the white one story part of the house on left in the photo): queen size bed, full bathroom, French doors into the yard, internet access, kitchen privileges. Manistee Audubon meets 7pm, 2nd Wed of month. Migration Celebration in Sept and Chickadee Christmas in Dec. Email for more info. Sorry no pets/dogs allowed.
