We were pleasantly surprised with the house! It was very clean, cozy and in a beautiful location. I was looking for a place near Lake Michigan to take my adult children and their families that we could make a yearly tradition of. There was a big deck for grilling and hanging out. In the back was a unique fire pit for campfires and roasting. Holland and Grand Haven are nearby for wandering if you want to get away from the private beach. The Beach House restaurant is very close with great food. The owners were very easy to deal with and very helpful with what would be available to us. The kitchen was very well stocked with things you might not expect (you can tell they put some thought into it!). The overall experience for all of my family was awesome!

I was invited by friends and for the most part the place is great. Bathroom is big, kitchen has everything you could possible need, the main bedroom is nice as is the porch and fire pit area. Sitting on the porch with view of water is very relaxing. Now for the negative, the downstairs seperate bedroom is dark and the bathroom has a curtain versus a door and the ceiling is so low that if you are 6 foot tall you will leave with a headache plus a few lumps. The other bedroom upstairs has two twins beds which are cots and squeak every time you move. The lake is a good walk away but does have chairs, picnic tables and fire pit to enjoy. I would recommend but at lower price and suggest new twin beds be bought and do some work on the seperate "suite".

Owner response: We are replacing the twin beds in the second bedroom before the next rental season, thank you for your feedback. As for the lower level bedroom and bath the ceiling hieght is determined by the floor joists. There is no "door" to the bath, it is a private bath adjacent to the bedroom. The bedroom has floor to ceiling windows on two side with curtains and bamboo shades that can be raised or lowered as desired by the guest.
A little slice of heaven.

This cottage provides an excellent vacation experience with all the "little extra's" provided. The owners are very good to work with. Property is as described...trees surrounding house do give a limited view of pigeon lake if you're by the fire, however, firepits on beach that you can use make the beach nighttime even more special. Pigeon lake is quiet and clean and views are wonderful. The owners maintain property and provide firewood and soaps, etc., things other places do not. We could not have asked for a more relaxing vacation and they don't overcharge on rent just because they are by Lake Michigan. Very easy access to both Holland and Grand Haven as well. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, can't rave enough about it, would definitely recommend to anyone. Would love to return sometime again in the future.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We are retired Coloradans who have owned this cottage for 10 years and have enjoyed meeting many of our guests (some have returned every year for 8 years. Each year we have invested ourselves in improving the property by remodeling the exterior and interior of the cottage. In 2009 we finally have completed all remodeling and look forward to enjoying more time at our home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
We originally purchased the property because both of our parents live in the area and it was more convenient to own a property than having constant travel between family and a hotel. Now our relatives can come visit us at the 'lake' when we are in town.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy our boating and kayaking time on the lake and Pigeon Creek. Adrian in particular enjoys his fishing time on the pier (salmon and steelhead) while I lay on the beach and read a book.
