New owners, same great location! We're working on updating our look to add even more value to this beautiful, family friendly property. We rented Painted Sky last summer and loved it so much, we bought it! :)
Super easy and convenient access to Lake Michigan, Buchanan Beach is just 200 yards (NO stairs!!) to the most beautiful stretch of sugary sand beach that Michigan has to offer. Stroll along the beach, soak up the beautiful sunsets, enjoy campfires around the fire pit, and sit back in the comfy Adirondack furniture or a nap in the hammock all on the large, private wooded lot.
Indoors your family will enjoy a NEW kids bunk room, ping pong table, foosball table, large selection of games, books, movies, Legos and plenty of other little touches that will make it feel like home. Swimming, boating, biking, walking, shopping, beaching, golfing, great restaurants - just to name a few of the local activities.
Painted Sky Cottage is just a few miles south of Grand Haven's famous Boardwalk. Enjoy the musical fountain in the summer time, along with great local shops and restaurants and lots of places to get ice cream. Don't forget to grab a Pronto Pup too!
Enjoy your choice of several beaches. In addition to Buchanan Beach, Grand Haven State Park is a great, lively beach offering volleyball, sandcastle competitions, and lots more. Rosy Mound Natural Area is great for hiking and gorgeous beach/dune views, within a couple of miles. Travel south about 15 miles and you'll come across Holland State Park, Tunnel Park, and the lovely downtown Holland shopping area. Drive or enjoy a gorgeous bike ride along the paved path at the end of the road that connects Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Holland (over 25 miles of trail)!
If you don't want to pack your bike, rent ours! Over 15 available in all sizes for you and your kids to get wherever you want to go or just explore the area. We also have wagons, beach towels, beach mats, beach toys and lots of other little extras to help make your vacation a breeze. Enjoy a swing and play set in the shady, large backyard, hoping to add a zip line this year too! :)
The public boat launch at Pigeon Lake is less than a one mile from the cottage as well as ample parking for your Jet Ski or small boat. Nearby Grand Haven Golf Club is one of the top rated courses in the area.
