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.

We own vacation rental property and a Charter Fishing Business in Grand Haven Michigan
Tricia purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Tricia chose Crockery
It is a great way to own water front property near Grand Haven and enjoy the quiet and relaxing views of the river.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a quiet property close to the popular city of Grand Haven Michigan but far enough away to relax and enjoy the water front.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Homey and comfortable
Tricia is a wonderful host and our stay was comfortable and relaxing. Loved the gas fireplace after being out and about on a rainy day!!
Had a wonderful time. Very quiet and peaceful. Hubby loved the backyard watching the boats and the water. Nature at its best. Maggie are puppy felt right at home. Stayed right in the yard. Tricia and Roger where the best. We will be back.
Picturesque and charming!
Lovely little cottage, beautiful view, and nice neighbors. One who even brought over some smaller kindling to help us get a fire started in the pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Were there to visit with family in town, but was able to get my husband's 91 year old mother out to sit and watch the river and boats, she loved it and wanted to come out another day so we did. And even though it rained later we were able to all sit on the old porch that is now a bedroom and see out the windows and door to still enjoy the view and the company. It made for a very special family moment and gettogether. Thank you! Our dogs loved it too! First time for them meeting water and the smaller one was obsessed with watching the leaves float by from the dock.
Rainy Day Review
I checked in on Tuesday and was planning on staying until Friday even with the lousy weather which was not the fault of the people renting the cottage. The cottage was a little rough, but was what I expected from the descriptions, so I was not surprised. On Wednesday the first day of my stay however, I became very sick and had to go to an emergency room in Grand Haven. I was there alone and since telephone reception is sketchy at best I might have trouble calling for help so I decided it would be better to leave for home. I called the owner and explained my situation and told her so she would have an extra day to clean for any incoming tenants. I thanked her for the stay and said good-bye. She did refund my $200. deposit which I was expecting, however a nice touch would have been to refund the lost day or at least a partial refund since it gave her an extra day to clean. I didn't ask her for it, but it would have been nice and made me feel like my vacation was not a total loss.
Quaint, dog friendly cottage.
We liked the location, being about halfway between Grand Valley State University and Grand Haven. Plenty of room for both dogs to run. The owner was attentive to an evening call regarding a minor plumbing issue that she had addressed the following day. Temps were in the 90's and the second bedroom window air conditioner kept the cottage comfortable. There is a nice county park about five minutes down the road that also has a boat launch, so if we stayed there again we would consider bringing our boat.
Thank you. So glad the cottage worked out for you. You were wonderful guest and would love to have you back again someday.
Everything was great!
So glad you had a great getaway! I didn't get to meet you this time but maybe next time! Thanks for your visit!
