Property description

3 bedroom lake house/cottage in beautiful Grand Haven one mile south of lighthouse and Grand Haven State Park! Summer rentals Saturday- Saturday at $2400/week except for Coast Guard Week $2850. Off season weekends $600.

Private association with over 1200 feet of private association beach on Lake Michigan with tennis court and small playground area. 78 steps up from parking lot to a quiet serene hideaway with seasonal views of Lake Michigan. Short walk to beach thru association roads.

Sleeps 6 comfortably with two queen beds and two twin beds. Bring your own blow-up beds for an additional two people or sleep on oversize Field & Stream cots provided. Fully furnished with sheets and towels.

Suitable for adventure seekers, pet owners, girls getaway, sightseeing, romantic getaway, or families with children who can walk stairs - unless you like carrying children.

Shore Acres Association is a group of 22 homes nestled in the sand dunes with an abundance of trees and wildlife. Together we share aprox 1400 feet of Lake Michigan beach. There are 6 cottages beach front. Our home is on top of a sand dune behind one of the lake front cottages. When the foliage is in full bloom you can still catch glimpses of the lake depending on where you are on the deck that surrounds the entire cottage.

Late fall, winter and early spring are the best times to rent if you want to see the lake. During the summer when the foilage is in full bloom it feels like you are in the middle of an ancient forest. It is quiet and peaceful and very private. Today June 18 - I met a young deer at the top of the stairs who didn't run but stood and stared at me. I think it may be the one my neighbor watched as the mother gave birth as he was walking down the road.

Bring your bathing suit, books, camera and enjoy.

Grand Haven - home of one of the top 13 beaches in the WORLD according to Travel & Leisure magazine review in March 2012!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: Same owner last 45 years, rebuilt in 1989. Yes, everything had to be carried up the 78 stairs. I also remember carrying sleeping children up those stairs after nights sitting around a bonfire at the beach. The ability to walk up stairs without assistance is suggested. Those stairs though have served as my daily workout and kept me healthy.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
Small and very private association of 22 property owners. Beautiful shared Lake Michigan beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Private, quiet wooded getaway but close to town and shopping. Homes nestled in the sand dunes with an abundance of trees and wildlife. Enjoy quiet walks and sunsets along the shores of Lake Michigan.
