This completely furnished three-bedroom, one-bath, sleeps 8-10. Fully equipped with all bedding, kitchenware, and washer/dryer for additional convenience. As a bonus, you'll find many board games, movies, karaoke machine (lots of fun!) and books...just in case of a rainy day!

We are close to sand dunes and many great hiking places.

Family friendly with pack-n-play, high chair, and lots of toys for kiddos.

The pictures on the site are a little dated, new ones are coming soon! Improvements since these pictures include an all new bathroom, exterior of the cottage is now a crisp white with a great new front porch, and the beds have been rearranged to have a total of 3full beds, 2twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa!

About Stephanie Cutter

For our first anniversary, we planned to go to California's wine country to celebrate. At the last minute, we decided to save some money and visit Michigan instead. We found a cottage online and were having such a wonderful time on our trip, that we called a local Coldwell Banker Realtor and asked to see some homes. Before we left, we had purchased this cottage and have loved it ever since!, it wasn't cheaper than a California trip, but has made many more memories!!!

Stephanie Cutter purchased this house in 2005

Why Stephanie Cutter chose Spring Lake

We loved Spring was a little cheaper than Grand Haven, but so close to everything we wanted to do on our vacations. We live in Chicago now in a condo, so on our trips to MI we wanted to have a yard, a hammock and our own house! We are able to ride our bikes without the Chicago city traffic, go to Lake MI and enjoy a beautiful beach, little shops (our favorite is an independent book store in Grand Haven, plus several great antique shops!) and restaurants, and quiet days and nights in the backyard.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite part is surely the ability to be in the back yard, get to the lake and Grand Haven, and nice nights on the town! In the back yard, we can nap, play games, read our books, my husband paints, and we never have to leave! However, there are plenty of places to go for dinner and drinks! Walk along the board walk to Old Boys Brewhouse and dine on the patio overlooking the lake channel. Or, drive a couple miles west on M104 and visit Vandermill, a cider mill with great food, live musing, and family friendly outdoor seating. We have frequently gone to Snug Harbor in Grand Haven and enjoyed our meal from their deck while overlooking the lake, or have a nice lunch at Kirbys from their great roof deck!!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cottage to spend a week or a weekend. We needed a place to stay while our house was being built so we spent a month in the house. It was the perfect spot for our “little vacation.” Although it is in Spring Lake, the larger town of Grand Haven is literally minutes away.

The house was very clean and well equipped and the neighbors couldn’t have been nicer. There is a walking/bicycle path a block away which we used at least 3 times a day to walk our dogs. The people we met along the way so friendly; it made us feel like we lived there forever.

There are plenty of beaches, restaurants and shops to enjoy. We only ate at local restaurants and never had a bad meal. You can easily enjoy day trips to Holland, Saugatuck, and Grand Rapids.

I would certainly recommend this lovely cottage.

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location near water, a walking path and playgrounds and a short drive to Grand Haven and the beach and to great hiking. The owners were kind and patient with me (new to using VRBO). The property itself is adorable and clean with a nice yard. As frequent visitors to the area, we will be back!

Amazing time in fantastic house!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family and had an amazing time. It is centrally located to all what Grand Haven has to offer.. We really loved the house, it is cute and charming and quiet large. My small toddlers loved playing out the back in the sandbox and on the kids slide while I supervised from the hammock! We did some bbqing in the evening and relaxed on the back deck. The lake is at the end of the block for Kayaking and the trail is right there too. The house has everything (toys, board games, W/D) and was super clean... at least before we came :) Everything went off like clockwork and we will hopefully stay there again!!! 10 out of 10!!

We Loved The Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time with our grandchildren and little dog. The location is perfect for shopping, Grand Haven and Lake Michigan. You only have to drive 2 to 3 miles for shopping and the beach. Thanks again for sharing your cottage with us. We loved the Village Bakery and went there several times. Great cottage for a family. We would definitely rent this cottage again.
