Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I have put a lot of my heart and soul into this place and love the vibe. My family and friends always look forward to their stay at my cozy cottage home. They cannot say enough about our city and what a great balance it has. Grand Rapids is large enough to have all the things you expect from a big city with out a lot of the confinement. You can drive out of grand rapids 10 miles in any direction and enjoy the raw untouched beauty, awesome rivers/lakes, and green space for which Michigan is well known. I have traveled well and lived in many different areas within Michigan and believe the Westside is the best side of. This home is an extension of my heart and I hope you will feel welcome as a fellow traveler of this world when you walk through the doors.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Rapids:
Grand Rapids is close to everything and everywhere you want to be in West MI. Some places in MI require a half hour drive or more to procure groceries. I used to live Up North and loved the natural beauty but began to see the limited access as a disadvantage. Where the Grand Rapids area offers the convenience of Michigan's second largest city and a bounty of environmental purity I value so much. Just a 25 mile drive to Lake MI and all the perks of city life. What more can you ask for?

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This home is in the perfect location. Right off the main drag that takes you directly from the city to the lake shore. Direct access to Interstate I-I96, Highway 131, and M-45 (Lake MI Drive). So you can have a direct route downtown, or to the lake shore. Take advantage of the spa room and book a massage treatment while you stay. There is a gym and a coffee shop right across the street and a killer diner with great breakfast and burgers within walking distance.
