Grand Haven cottage description

Beautiful, newer home on the shores of Lake Michigan. Private beach with no bluff (only 5 steps) that can be seen from the lakeside deck if you prefer to stay out of the sand while the kids enjoy building sand castles. Miles of sandy beach for walking are right outside the door and gorgeous sunsets can be viewed directly from cottage. A wonderful, relaxing vacation destination for the family!

A bike/running path extends from Grand Haven to Holland and is right at the end of our private drive. We are situated right between Grand Haven and Holland, both of which offer an abundance of restaurants and unique shopping. Kirk Park is one mile south and offers 68 acres of hiking trails. Michigan Adventure amusement park is 35 minutes north in Muskegon. Boaters can enjoy the public access point at Pigeon Lake only 5 miles south. Fishing is available at Pigeon Lake or on a nearby pond within walking distance. So much to do in the area, but you may never want to leave the beach and the relaxing sound of the waves.

The home features a large master bedroom and bath with an additional private bedroom upstairs. Both have beautiful lake views and the soothing sound of the waves on the beach. A third upstairs bedroom with bunk beds and an additional single bed also has its own full bath attached.

A large, open kitchen connects to the family room with gorgeous lake views and a 46 inch flat screen TV hung above the gas fireplace. The dining area can seat eight, with additional seating at the kitchen bar stools.

This Lake Michigan beach home is the perfect getaway for your family. Our family enjoys the quality time spent there and we know yours will too!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
          We chose to buy a cottage on Lake Michigan near Grand Haven because we feel that it has the best of both worlds. With private lake frontage, we have the beauty and fun that Lake Michigan offers. But with Holland and Grand Haven so close, we also have dining, shopping and recreational activities a short drive away. We also love the bike/running path that allows for leisurely bike rides along the coast.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Vacations at Lake Michigan have been some of our most memorable vacations with our children. We have rented various cottages on Lake Michigan for a week with family for many years. There is nothing like a beach vacation for sharing quality family time...whether it's building sand castles together, engaging in a family beach volleyball match or watching the sun set in the evening and the stars at night.....you cannot match the magical moments that happen when sharing a week together at the beach.
