GRAND HAVEN COTTAGE, STEPS TO THE BEACH!

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Grand Haven - Summer Suite

Spend a summer week relaxing on Lake Michigan!

Still Available for 2014--New Listing!

August 9-August 16

NOTE: We rent Saturday to Saturday during the peak season, with a 6 day minimum. We do NOT rent for any days besides Saturday to Saturday from June 28-August 15. Sorry about that.

Enjoy a weekend at our charming Grand Haven cottage. Our cottage is steps to the State Park and City Beach and a short walk to downtown. The cottage backs up to a beautiful wooded area with trails for walking, running or bird watching!

This is a wonderful little cottage that sits right up to the Mulligan Hollow woods--look out the kitchen window for deer in the early mornings. We absolutely love this space--very peaceful, very quiet and very centrally located!

Our guests can expect to have fresh coffee, clean linens and probably even some treats in the fridge upon arrival. Fresh flowers, a comprehensive visitors information sheet and current magazines are also typically provided! We want to make sure you feel right at home upon arrival.

The State Park and City Beach are less than a 5 minute walk from the cottage. The cottage sits up from the beach but both beaches are public and accessed for free. There are hiking, ski and running trails all behind the house and also tennis courts that are about a 5 minute walk down trails. A charcoal grill, wireless internet, DVD, VHS player and lots of board games, puzzles and books will keep you entertained all day. In the basement we have a variety of beach chairs as well, so no need to lug your own along!

We stay out of town when we have guests in Grand Haven, but we are easily accessible via cell phone. Prior to your stay we'll touch base to ensure all your questions are answered, but beyond that we are out of your hair! We rent a lot ourselves so we know how important it is to have privacy and time to simply relax and enjoy yourself!

Downtown GH is about a 15 minute walk or there is a trolley that runs from downtown, though, honestly, we have never used it. We usually just walk into town if we want to have dinner--it's a great way to see the neighborhood.

The best part of the cottage, of course, is the beach at Lake Michigan. You and your family will love the easy access to both the State Park and the (usually less crowded) City Beach. Spend the day enjoying the beach and then relax on the front porch as the sun sets.

My mom, Lucy, owns this cottage, but we help her rent it in the summers. She purchased it in 2004 and it has housed many happy families for rentals since. My husband and I are teachers and wedding photographers. Lucy is a retired teacher. We are Michigan born and bred.

GREAT STAY IN GH!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful week at this cottage! Just took a short walk to the beach each day and to the pier at night to see the sunset. There is also a beach lookout area just down the street. Emily was very helpful and the cottage was clean and spacious. We would definitely stay here again!

READY TO GO BACK!

  • 5 out of 5
I found the property to be very clean. It had everything for a comfortable stay. The beds were very comfortable. and had great space. My favorite feature of the home is its location. It is a nice walk to downtown, through the trail in the woods or along the beach. Its a great spot for relaxing and I can't wait for my trip back.

FANTASTIC PORCH! WALK TO THE BEACH!

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed at this cottage several times as it is my preferred place in Grand Haven. The home is part of a small community on a residential street and is a very short walk to the beach with lake views from the large porch. Four bedrooms accommodate multiple guests, however it would be just as nice for a couple on a weekend getaway.

Love this place and its location!

WONDERFUL COTTAGE NEAR TO EVERYTHING!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time at this cottage--we rented for a week with 4 adults and 2 children. We would definitely return. Everything was thoughtfully taken care of--great chairs for the porch, the basic kitchen needs, flowers outside and inside, clean, clean, clean space, DVDs and books as well as games. We had a great time walking down to the beach each day (huge waves one day!) and also walking on the pier for the sunset. The owner thought of everything! We will definitely try to return in 2014!

ALWAYS GREAT

  • 5 out of 5
Always a great place to stay. Clean and tons of room. I spend most of the time on the deck. Super close to the beach but far enough away to be quiet. Emily and Ian have always been helpful with grand haven tips. I can't wait to come back. Also make sure you say hi to the neighbors to the west, they are really great human beings!

FANTASTIC RENTAL!

  • 5 out of 5
Emily & Ian were great. They responded to all emails quickly and answered all questions asked. The house was lovely and super clean. Full of books and board games. Emily even left us delicious handmade pies. Great location, so close to the beach and the downtown area. Would definitely rent from Emily and Ian again and highly recommend anyone else thinking renting from them to do so!
