Grand Haven house description

Access to a private-shared beach is just 200 yards and no stairs to the most beautiful stretch of sugary sand beach that Michigan has to offer. Stroll along the beach, soak up the beautiful sunsets, enjoy campfires around the fire pit, and sit back in the comfy Adirondack furniture or a nap in the hammock all on the large, private, beautiful, wooded lot. Swimming, boating, biking, walking, shopping, beaching, golfing, great restaurants - just to name a few of the activities.

Painted Sky Cottage is just a few miles south of Grand Haven's famous Boardwalk. We have bikes on site available for rent with more than 25 miles of paved scenic bike trails access at the corner connecting Spring Lake, Grand Haven and Holland. A swing and play set in the backyard. The public boat launch at Pigeon Lake is less than a one mile from the cottage as well as ample parking for your Jet Ski or small boat. Near by Grand Haven Golf Club which holds a ranking among the top 1% of courses in the Nation to enjoy.

Grand Haven hosts the Coast Guard festival in August, attracting boaters of all kinds. Grand Haven offers a thriving downtown complete with art galleries, casual and fine dining, sporting good shops, book stores and farmers market; something for everyone. Pick blueberries in July, August and September also apple and peach groves nearby. Wineries also offer tours and tastings. Recreational paradise is just steps away with swimming, sunbathing, hiking or boating in Lake Michigan at the harbor state parks of Grand Haven and Holland both with two of the most picturesque lighthouses and many county parks to hike, play and catch some outstanding views of Lake Michigan.
