About the property

Cottage, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

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.

Why Jill Scott chose Grand Haven

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.'

What makes this cottage unique

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, 3 cable televisions. 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our favorite memories are the great sunsets, sitting on the beach, the beautiful lake. Thank you Jill for sharing your wonderful house with us! Everything was so clean and inviting. We will treasure these memories always! God Bless you!

Perfect house so well supplied

  • 5 of 5

The house was so well stocked/supplied - all the kitchen tools/equipment you could want, extra sheets, towels (beach towels too), firewood, etc. Location was amazing. We saw an eagle fly directly over the porch everyday before/after he/she went fishing. This truly was the perfect house!

Beach, beach, beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves spending a week "On the Beach" each summer. We have been coming here annually for nearly 15 years. The beachfront location can't be beat. The large living room, and many bedrooms makes it an outstanding place for extended family to get together. The place has everything we need, including wi-fi, to really feel at home. The beachfront location can't be beat, and it is conveniently located near the grocery store.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time spending a week "On the Beach." Everything you could think of was provided and we were happy with everything. My family enjoyed the time to share together and the children had a great time with a week long "sleep over." We felt at home very quickly. Jill was a very thoughtful "hostess." We hope to be able to come back again. Thank you Jill for sharing your house with us.
