Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

Quaint little cottage on the river just miles from the popular town of Grand Haven Michigan. The Captains Cottage has a dock to accommodate up to a 20 foot boat or there are two marinas nearby.

Great fishing off the dock right out the front door or by boat for miles of river and bayous. Lake Michigan is just down river with some of the most beautiful beaches around. Spend the day at the beach, downtown Grand Haven, Michigan's Adventure amusement park or at a nearby golf course, and the evening next to the camp fire along the river. There is a small Boston Whaler fishing boat available to rent as well.

Book a Lake Michigan fishing trip or pleasure cruise with Captain Roger on the Evolution. A 36 foot Hatteras Sport Fishing boat. Check out our fishing site at Evolution Charters in Grand Haven Michigan.

Why The Owner chose West Central

The "Captains Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful week here. My wife's from Grand Haven, so there were lots of friends and relatives to visit. Tricia and Roger have a wonderful place to stay and relax. It really is right on the Grand River. Last evening our nephew and his family came to see us by boat. There's plenty of water by the dock, so we were able to board his boat and took a ride to the "Gravel Pits". Fun !! Thanks Tricia & Roger for letting us use your special place

The property/land is beautiful the cabin a little rough.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed hanging around outside, had a couple of fires in pit. the cabin was a bit misleading, 1 bedroom is the front porch, thankful the weather was somewhat cool, the little window air conditioner in the bedroom is the only ac in the place, the toilet seat was old enough that it has worn spots on it. the shower head is hanging through a hole in the wall, front screen door needs attention. all and all had a decent time, did a lot of sightseeing.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry this is not what you expected. I did show a lady the cottage before she booked. when she saw the view of the river right from bed she booked it for 6 weeks. I think any kind of waterfront in Grand Haven at all will triple this price without the free firewood! ( and they might not take midnight phone calls) that's ok that's what we are here for!

It fits four perfectly!

  • 4 of 5

This cute little house fit four adults comfortably. It was a little chilly and windy to enjoy the outside activities like boating, fishing or swimming but would definitely like to return in a warmer month. However we had no problem keeping ourselves busy.

We visited the Tulip Festival in Holland one day and took the trolley tour (recommended) and it was beautiful. We have some great pictures!

The next day we visited the State Park in Grand Haven and walked to the top of a huge sand dune with the view of Lake Michigan. We were also able to enter the beach through a couple public accesses. Would have never imagined the sand to be so fine and beaches that big!

The third day we did some shopping and found the biggest garden center (Countryside) I ever seen. I could have spent all day there as well.

We had a great get away with our Daughter and Son-in-law.

Sincerely, Angie

Owner's Response: Thank you for your time and kind words. I love getting to know my guest a bit before they come and make sure they know a little more about the property.. I am sorry you were unable to join him , but glad your hard working man was able to get some R&R. The river out front can do wonders for that! Maybe you can join him back here someday! Thanks
