Enjoy senior living in a Great Lake-side retirement community at Blue Water Lodge in Fort Gratiot, MI. Four blocks from the shore of beautiful Lake Huron, this independent living community is central to healthcare and less than a mile from Birchwood Mall, where you’ll find favorites like Target and JCPenney as well as a cinema. Even closer, local Vinomondo Winery offers wine-making and wine-tasting events close enough for you to walk home after an afternoon of fun.
This maritime history-rich area is home to several wonderful museums. Port Huron Museums, a family of 4, offers a single-ticket system that allows you to visit all four facilities for one price: The Gratiot Lighthouse, Carnegie Center, Huron Lightship and Thomas Edison Depot Museum. All located within 6 miles from your front door.
Blue Water Lodge is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2020 Caring.com Stars award, and the 2019 Great Place to Work certification.More + Less -

Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site
The convenience of Blue Water Lodge's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.
There's also a message therapist that comes in and is available for appointments.
Fitness Right at Home
Blue Water Lodge residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.
There is a walking club, everyone documents their steps and breaks it down into miles. Each member gets a matching T-shirt, and wears it proud! An apartment was just rented to a company that will be providing PT, OT, and other services.
Let Us Serve You
Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Blue Water Lodge's dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.
The award winning chef and sous chef are amazing, they get wonderful reviews from the residents. There is a roundtable every month, and about twice a month the chef does "display cooking" which everyone absolutely loves.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the Fort Gratiot area and Blue Water Lodge makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
Given the location on the border, residents go to Canada about once a month to visit the casino. It's always fun to try your luck at the tables!
Life is Never Boring
Blue Water Lodge's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
For residents with a green thumb there's a community vegetable and flower garden. The vegetables are incorporated in the chef's menu on a regular basis. Saturday movie nights are always a success, and the shuffle board and pool leagues and popular as well.
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Blue Water Lodge. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.
Lend a Helping Hand
Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Residents raise money to support local schools by buying backpacks and supplies for children.
We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
