Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Tom is a local builder and was rasied in Grand Haven but spent fifteen years enjoying California! Eve grew up in Historic Indian Village located in downtown Detroit and has lived in the area for 20 years. We enjoy traveling, camping in our 1966 Frolic camper and being outdoors! We enjoy renovating homes… finding them in rough shape and transforming them into their original splendor!

Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
The Howard House is located within a quiet neighborhood but is close to all of the downtown activities. You are walking distance to the boardwalk, beach, restaurants, shopping, library etc. Many guests tell us that they feel like they are at a 'home away from home!' They mention the antique furniture, stain glass windows and our kitchens the most :) We have designed and decorated our properties to feel like homes!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Howard House offers convience...everything you need is within walking distance! The only time you will need your car is to go to the grocery store and to be honest that is not even necessary during the week...there are specialty markets downtown for basic needs and unique purchases! The Howard House has a front porch swing to enjoy a cup of coffee or read a book. The back patio is a perfect place for kids to play and parents to feel comfortable and relax. There is a downstairs bedroom for for those that have difficulty with stairs and the home has a fully equipped kitchen with an open floor plan to enjoy meals at home.
