Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Grand Haven - Mary Ann
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)
Our Cottage is available for rent year round in Grand Haven, Michigan. Walk to the beach, the pier, downtown, Mulligan's Hollow, Duncan Woods, the YMCA-- everything you love about Grand Haven is just steps away! You cannot believe how cute this home is inside and out! Families have been summering in this cottage for over a century! Just $1,000-3250/week for one of the cutest beach area cottages in all of Grand Haven!
While we are right near the beach, you can still walk everywhere in town within 20 minutes! Park your car and forget about it. The Cottage sits on the bluff just above the City of Grand Haven Beach and the Grand Haven State Park! Peterson Ridge is a small path on the plateau between Edward Ave and the bluff over the beach. There are NO cars on Peterson Ridge, so it is very private and kid-friendly. Our cottage backs to the Woods of Mulligan's Hollow with miles of trails separating the beachfront cottages from downtown Grand Haven! The woods keep the cottage cool on even the warmest days!

De-beach on the front porch with many hooks for toys, suits, towels and flip-flops. The 2nd floor deck has great sun from mid-morning-mid afternoon plus a small view of Lake Michigan!

I am a father of 2 boys (ages 4 and 6) who are my life! We love being at the cottage and doing all there is to do in this very special spot!
My mother's family is from Grand Haven, and I have been summering here my whole life. I wanted to be out at the beach, but also wanted to be near enough to the pier to walk everywhere. Our home sits right on the edge of Mulligan's Hollow for hiking, trail-riding, dog-walking and wildlife adventuring! We are so close to the beach that you can come up and down all day for supplies, naps, snacks, tantrums without giving up your whole day at the beach.
My hammock is my favorite afternoon spot when the boys go down for their nap after a day at the beach.
Walking the beach early morning and at sunset is heavenly.
The Musical Fountain is as charming and gratifying as it is hokey. Who cares if it is silly? You're eating Dairy Treat on a hillside over the river with a 1000 others who have completely forgotten last week's rat-race and are embracing a wonderful summer ritual in Grand Haven. This is not to be missed!
