                          The house is just a few blocks west of the John Ball Zoo.

                          Close to all the major downtown event venues. The Amway Grand Plaza, Goei Center, Van Andel Arena, DeVoss Place, The Bob, St. Cecilia's Musical Society, GRCC, GVSU, and downtown museums and attractions.

                          There is a shuttle that will pick you up and drop you off in the heart of Grand Rapids Nightlife to check out places like the GR Brewing Company, Stella's Lounge, Hop Cat, San Chez, Bar Divani, the Pyramid Scheme, Peppino's Sports Bar, and the list goes on.

                          If you find yourself traveling to Grand Rapids for a wedding, getaway weekend, visiting family, or business; this location cannot be beat.

                           

                          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. When I am not traveling, or working, I love to visit my Westside Home. 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 Michigan is well known for. I have lived in many different areas in Michigan and I would say the westside is the best side. This home is an extention of my heart and I hope you will feel welcome as a fellow traveller 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 grocerices. I used to live Up North and loved the natural beauty but began to see the limitted access as a disadvantage. Where the Grand Rapids area offers the convenience of Michigans second largest city and a bounty of enviromental 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 lakeshore. Direct access to Interstate I96, Highway 131, and M-45(Lake MI Drive). So you can have a direct route downtown, or to the lakeshore. Take advantage of the massage room and book a spa treatment while you stay. It's like your own private B and B without the nonsense. There is a gym and a coffee shop right accross the street and a killer diner with great breakfast and burgers within walking distance.
