Property description

My kids call it Grand HEAVEN for a reason...
We are 2 miles from the beach and 1/2 mile from downtown shops, restaurants and the boardwalk.
Named on Yahoo as 'One of the best secret beaches on Earth!!'
Here is an excerpt from the Yahoo! article:
'Trolley cars, a 2.5-mile harbor-front boardwalk, and two 19th-century red lighthouses give a sweet, old-time feel to this Lake Michigan town. Boaters and fishermen flock here, and hikers like the short-but-strenuous climb to Rosy Mound that includes 1,000 feet of stairs up and down the sand dunes to the shore of Lake Michigan. There are warm shallows for swimming, and the soft sand of two public beaches squeaks when you walk on it. After sunset, the local restaurants, ice cream parlors, and shops come alive.' Yahoo! News Article May 2, 2012

Adorable, clean, comfortable home away from home. We are located on the desirable WEST side of the city. Just pack your clothes and get some groceries. We have the rest covered. :) Walk or bike to downtown Grand Haven. We are in walking distance to charming downtown, Harbor Island and the boardwalk. We are close to shops, restaurants, parks, and the beach. Our house is located in the charming Old Towne neighborhood. The houses are all close to a century old. It is a safe, quiet area. Come stay at our elderly, cute, quiet, relaxing getaway. You won't want to leave.

Enjoy bike rides to the beach or walks downtown to the shops or to the boardwalk to enjoy the Musical Fountain. Enjoy Lucy's Deli for Lunch, grab some ice cream at the Dairy Treat while watching the boats go in and out of the channel. Walk to the Farmer's Market, Harbor Island, or to Snug Harbor for Dinner. Charter a fishing boat for the day, Rent bikes, walk to Chinook Pier, or just simply relax on the beach.

There are two cozy bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a queen bed. It is perfect for a romantic escape. The 2nd bedroom is perfect for the kids. It has a set of bunks.

We have Wi-Fi, Cable and a DVD player. We have a flat-screen TV in the living room and a small flat-screen in the Master Bedroom.
On rainy days enjoy a day at the Spring Lake Aquatic Center. There are kiddie pools with waterslides, splash pads and tons of indoor water fun. There are also work out facilities, and swimming for adults.
There is so much to do in Grand Haven and nearby. However, when you need a place to come at the end of the day, this is the perfect getaway. Quaint, clean, comfortable and convenient.
Our house is perfect for Romantic getaways, Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, Father/Son & Mother/Daughter trips, Family time, or even Complete Alone, Re-charge Time (my favorite :)

During the Summer (July and August) WE ONLY DO WEEKLY RENTALS (FRI-FRI). May and September are available for nightly rentals (3 night minimum).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a young family that lives in West MI. I grew up camping in Grand Haven and wanted my kids to have the wonderful Summer memories Grand Haven has to offer. We have a son that just graduated from GVSU, 2 boys that play travel hockey and a daughter that will be attending MSU in the Fall of 2015. BUSY! So, Grand Haven is the perfect escape for us all. :)

Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
We bought our vacation home in Grand Haven as our future Summer or retirement home. We would like a place to escape to when the kids are all grown and out of the house. The location is perfect for us and is close to our family. I have always wanted to own an old house in Grand Haven. We love our piece of history.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the location. We walk or bike into town for ice cream or dinner. We love to watch the boats go in and out of the channel. We also like to walk the pier and the park at the YMCA. We usually drive to the beach b/c we have too much packed to walk or bike. However, in the morning I like to walk to the beach while everyone else is still sleeping to walk the pier. We LOVE our little house and can't wait to share it with you...
