Grand Haven condo description

The Franklin House is a historic Grand Haven home located only one block from the waterfront where the famous Grand Haven Musical Fountain can be viewed. Downtown stores, restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and museums are within one to three blocks, yet our property features a large, quiet yard with plenty of private, off-street parking.

These completely remodeled, two-bedroom condominiums include fully-equipped kitchens, comfortable living rooms, fireplaces, air conditioning, in-unit laundry, ten-foot ceilings, and their own private deck or porch, with gas grill and seating. Each unit can comfortably sleep four adults and has all the amenities of home.

There are three condos from which to choose: The front condo is set up like a townhouse. It has the kitchen, dining area, 1/2 bath and living room on the main floor and two bedrooms, 2 baths and laundry upstairs. This condo rents for $100 more per week than the other two due to its extra bathrooms.

The lower, back condo has 2 bedrooms and one bath and is all on one level. It has a large deck that overlooks the back yard and a side, covered porch.

The upper, back condo also has 2 bedrooms and one bath, is all on the same level, but has a flight of stairs to access it. Its spacious, private deck overlooks the backyard.


While the Franklin House can be a great place for reunions it is designed so that each unit feels extremely private. Condominiums are accessed on separate sides of the home. Our facility and location cannot be matched.
Pets and smokers cannot be accommodated.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My name is Tina and I own and operate the Franklin House, with the help of my family. My husband, Paul, daughter Isabel who is 18 and 16 year old son Max help me clean, do lawn work, paint...and the list goes on! This is a family-run business in which we take great pride. I grew up locally and always knew that I wanted to return after college to raise a family in this safe, friendly town that is rich with natural beauty. I adore introducing people to Grand Haven, which I hold so dear, and doing my best to insure that they have a lovely vacation at the Franklin House.

              Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven:
              The Franklin House was built 100 years ago for a prestigious family in town. Years later it was made into a rooming house called the 'Rock Garden Inn.' It fell into disrepair and was completely dilapidated when we purchased it. Paul and I fell in love with this eyesore because we saw its potential! We designed the 3 condos and renovated it, doing much of the work ourselves. It has proven to be a wonderful business to run!
