We named our cottage 'On The Beach' because that's what makes our cottage unique. Yes, we have 7 bedrooms, 3 and a half baths, beautiful Knotty Pine, Maple, and Cherry wood enhancing each room, a Mexican style spa room with a 2 person tub, but it's really the beach on Lake Michigan and the spectacular view that makes it so special. That's why we have a large deck in the front overlooking the lake, a smaller deck on the second level giving a beautiful view of the Grand Haven pier, a high window lending a view from the loft bedroom, and a quiet herb garden on the South side of the cottage with a swinging bench.

Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: When we purchased the cottage it really was a much smaller house, over the years we built it up and out, all the while keeping in mind the most precious part of being here on the shores of Lake Michigan. We wanted to keep it simple and fun. We've been renting the cottage since 2000. We love meeting new people and we strive to make it one of the best vacation homes in the area and adding wonderful memories to our renter's lives.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven, MI, USA:
Grand Haven is a home town for us, we wanted our children to experience what we had and that's why we try to keep the cottage 'family friendly.'
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Whether there is sunshine or rain you can enjoy being at the cottage, we make sure you have plenty of books and games, and wireless for your computer, or cable television. Some people enjoy going just a few miles north to the Water Park, a few miles south to Saugatuck or a few miles east to the John Ball Park Zoo. We are just minutes away from the bike path that leads into Holland. The location is even great to stay in the winter and ski in the north just one and a half hours away. If you're a tennis player, we have that too right here in Shore Acres!
