Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Western Michigan - Mary Ann

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

SUMMARY:

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, the town ski hill, cross-country trails-- 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 $900-3,750/week for one of the cutest beach area cottages in all of Grand Haven!

THE LOCATION:

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!

OUTSIDE THE HOME:

Rinse off in the HOT WATER outdoor shower and 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! There is a very, nice gas grill outside off the kitchen. There is a fantastic nap hammock overlooking Mulligan's Hollow behind the cottage. The outdoor fireplace is perfect for s'mores and Michigan wine.

INSIDE THE COTTAGE:

The first floor has a large porch, living room, fireplace, dining room and adorable kitchen with nice, clean appliances. There are 2 sofas and a huge sectional in the living room around the fireplace and tv. The dining table is set for 6, but can accommodate 10 with 2 leaves. There are dozens of board games, puzzles, books, toys, beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, to enjoy. Each bedroom has windows on 2 walls for great evening cross-breezes and the sound of waves!

THE ROOMS:

Bedroom #1 on the 2nd floor has a Queen bed, closet and dresser overlooking the 2nd floor deck.

Bedroom #2 on the 2nd floor has a Queen bed and closet overlooking Mulligan's Hollow.

Bedroom #3 on the 2nd floor has a full-size bed, a twin bed, a closet and dresser overlooking 2nd floor porch.

About Cory Robertson

I am a father of 2 boys (ages 8 and 10) who are my life! We love being at the cottage and doing all there is to do in this very special spot!

Cory Robertson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Cory Robertson chose Western Michigan

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

perfect. exceeded our expectations!

Wonderful cottage. Went in the off season so it was very quiet. Amenities were off the hook, we wanted for nothing. Will definitely be booking again!

Felt at Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is cozy and perfect for an active family. It gives you the historic feel of vacationing at Lake Michigan, with claw foot tubs and wood floors. We had a super time celebrating our daughters graduation from law school. We had people from all over the country.

This was the perfect place for our big family!

  • 4 of 5

Cory was a great host. Available for all our questions though we did not need him because he gave such great instruction at the start.The cottage was very comfortable and stocked with more than we could imagine. It was really a home away from home. We had 12 in our party and were even, with some creativity, able to fit 13 people around the table for our celebration of our son's college graduation. The beds were comfortable and the main room was set up to accommodate our whole crew WITHOUT feeling overwhelming and cramped. We loved the layout. We appreciate the stocked kitchen with all the pans we needed even the big pot for our shrimp boil. Our dogs were well cared for with an area to safely run. All said it was a beautiful cottage in a great location to enjoy the beach and all Grand Haven has to offer. It is a great value and the memories here were priceless. Thank you Cory for thinking of all the great details. The only drawback was parking but we knew this coming in and the balcony needed some work.

Nice, quiet, clean, pleasant, classic beach house with tons of space/beds!

  • 5 of 5

From the outside, the property looks like its neighbors - a fairly dense row of old/weathered beach houses near the beach but not on it, backing right up on a wild/wooded ravine and forest. Inside, it is like a photo-shoot of the All AMERICAN Beach house with plenty of hanging out space, nice eating area and kitchen (everything functional and clean) and 5 bedrooms with 3 good double beds and 2 rooms with twin beds - basically room for a large comfortable group. Plenty of beach chairs, fire wood, distilled water, wine in the fridge - instant vacation. We'll be back!

Springtime Sibling and Mom Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We are lucky lucky to have found Mary Anne, Cutest Cottage Near Beach!! Clean, roomy, charming, nicely decorated is only the beginning.

Whenever I visit my Grand Rapids based family from my home in Denver Metro, we like to take a drive out to Lake Michigan, Grand Haven being a favorite destination. A three night get-away in one of the cottages on the bluffs overlooking the beach sounded great, and Mary Anne fit our needs to a T. The off-season rates in April were very reasonable, too.

With the five bedrooms we had plentiful sleeping arrangements for 6 adult siblings and Mom, and every bed was perfectly comfortable with linens and bedding of very good quality. Plenty of towels were provided also, and a full bathroom upstairs and down was convenient. The balcony upstairs is a wonderful place to view the lake during the day, and the stars and moon at night.

The living room had abundant room for lounging around the fire at night, the dining room was a gathering place for coffee in the morning and putting out dinner spreads at night. The kitchen had everything we needed, very well equipped, lots of cutlery, plates, bowls, glasses, mugs and even glass wine glasses!

The location is wonderful, just a short 5 minute walk and the waves of Lake Michigan are lapping at your feet. The wooded area behind the cottage is an enchanting place as well, with a winding path inviting you to stroll.

Cory is an excellent host, easy to contact and helpful with any questions. We all appreciate his attention to detail that makes Mary Anne a cut above the usual cottage rental. We will recommend his cottage highly to friends and family.

Thank you, Cory!

Tell us your available weeks and we'll find you wonderful things to do when you're NOT at the beach!
