About the owner: I am fortunate to claim Grand Haven as my hometown. This is a beautiful lake-shore community where family and friends reside and gather year-round. After university in Kalamazoo, my husband and I settled in that vibrant community to work and raise our family. He works in real estate and I am an artist and educator. The locale here is perfectly suited to our professional endeavors and our interests. We both enjoy kayaking on the big lake, walking the beach and cycling.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
This property has been in my family for over 100 years. The original home was a small, single-story cottage with a wide front porch on a sandy dune. While the dune is still sandy, the home not be maintained as it was, and so we tore it down and re-built on the same site. It now is oriented toward the lake, with a full second floor and an open plan on the main level. We love it here, and to share the lake breezes and comfortable setting with travelers.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Grand Haven can be a bustling town in the summer, and we feel that our dune-side location offers privacy and relaxation while still within walking distance of the action. In addition, the beach is expansive and inviting, just a downhill walk away! A favorite sunset viewing spot is at the top of the public staircase, "Weber's Stairs"-- grab a drink and join in for a toast to the day!
