Are you are looking for a long term rental of a lovely lakefront property with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms?

Our waterfront home (We call it THE LAKE HOUSE) has 110 feet of private waterfront! It is a spacious 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home. The private beach area is right in the back yard--No streets to cross to get to the lake. There is a large deck which offers majestic views, a large professionally manicured lawn, a firepit outside and a fireplace inside, a jetted (Jacuzzi) bathtub, basketball hoop, and central air conditioning.


The LAKE HOUSE is located on picturesque Pottawattomie Bayou Lake in Grand Haven, Michigan. Pottawattomie Lake is connected to Lake Michigan via the Grand River. It is warmer and also calmer than Lake Michigan and is the most popular body of water on the Grand Haven side of the river. You can splash and play in the lake, or you can lounge by the beach or on the deck and watch passing kayaks and canoes, ski boats, pontoons, stand-up paddle boarders and a few fishing boats.

There are 3 bedrooms in this home. The spacious Master Bedroom has a KING bed and walk-in closet. The furniture in this bedroom is a cheerful cottage style in refreshing creamy-white colors. Bedroom #2 has a queen bed. Both of these bedrooms have picture windows that overlook the awesome lake. Bedroom #3 is a smaller, but ample, bedroom.

There are 2 full bathrooms. One of them has his and hers double sinks. Both of them have jetted (Jacuzzi) bathtubs.

The spacious, bright living room measures 23 feet by 17 feet! It has a cathedral ceiling and a ceiling fan. And it has a gas log fireplace. All of the furnishings are clean and comfortable. Large picture windows there highlight terrific views of the water. You might see a gaggle of geese, a few graceful swans, a blue heron, a sandhill crane, a red tailed hawk, turkeys, a red-headed woodpecker, a king fisher or a variety of many other birds. Several of our guests have seen deer in the yard. On rare occasions soaring eagles have been spotted over the lake.

The dining area is large and cheerful. It is furnished with comfortable seating for 6 at the table and 4 more at the snack bar. The kitchen is fully equipped with full-sized refrigerator & stove, microwave, and all of the pots and pans you will need. There is a complete set of 12 dishes. Of course there is a dishwasher too.

The view is amazing from both inside and outside this home. You can see the sunlight glisten off the water as you lounge at the beach area, relax on the deck or even view it from inside the living room. In the evenings you can curl up in front of the gas log fireplace in the living room, or sit outside around the firepit and be mesmerized by the flickering flames as you roast hotdogs and marshmallows and make hobo pies and S'mores.

The yard is a great place to play outdoor games. It is almost an acre large, nicely landscaped and professionally manicured. There are washer pitching pits built into the yard. And there is a basketball hoop.

The LAKE HOUSE has a full-size washer and dryer conveniently located in the 3rd bedroom.

All 1600 square feet of the home are on one level. (There are 4 steps outside to get into the home, and there is a flight of steps from the deck to the backyard.)

The Grand Haven area has wonderful hiking trails, lovely beaches, great golf courses and miles of bike paths. There are also unique parks to explore and enjoy. Beautiful Pottawattomie Park is nearby. It has a great playground for the kids, a swimming area and a fishing/observation deck that extends out over the water. Lake Michigan and its sugar sand beach is a quick and easy 5 miles from the cottage, as is quaint downtown Grand Haven. You can stroll on the boardwalk there, watch a sunset from the pier and enjoy the dancing waters of Grand Haven's famous Musical Fountain. If you feel really energetic, drive to Rosy Mound Park (about 3 miles south of town) and burn off excess calories with a rigorous hike to Lake Michigan. You will be rewarded with spectacular views!

Grand Haven has some exceptional restaurants. You will find little eating houses featuring homecooked breakfasts, the Pronto Pup kiosk (a Grand Haven tradition), Fricano's Pizzaria (another Grand Haven tradition), a variety of ice creams parlors, and both trendy and elegant fine dining establishments. There is everything from seafood to Italian to sushi to steaks to pizza to gyros to fast food to home made breads and candies. Grand Haven also hosts a Farmers' Market twice a week during the summer.

The LAKE HOUSE is a waterfront paradise! It is immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, and comfortable.

PLEASE NOTE the following: We do not allow any pets. The interior of the home is smoke-free, but smoking is permitted outside. Maximum occupancy is limited to 6 persons. Also an inquiry is not considered a request to hold or reserve the home. Thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
The LAKE HOUSE was our primary residence until we built a new house. The homes on this lake feel secluded because of the lovely shade trees that surround the perimeters of many of the properties, and yet they are close to everything in Grand Haven.
