Shore Acres Association is a group of 22 homes nestled in the sand dunes with an abundance of trees and wildlife. Together we share aprox 1200 feet of Lake Michigan beach. There are 6 cottages beach front. Our home is on top of a sand dune behind one of the lake front cottages. When the foliage is in full bloom you can still catch glimpses of the lake depending on where you are on the deck that surrounds the entire cottage.
Late fall, winter and early spring are the best times to rent if you want to see the lake. During the summer when the foilage is in full bloom it feels like you are in the middle of an ancient forest. It is quiet and peaceful and very private. Today June 18 - I met a young deer at the top of the stairs who didn't run but stood and stared at me. I think it may be the one my neighbor watched as the mother gave birth as he was walking down the road.
Bring your bathing suit, books, camera and enjoy.
Winter guests need to be aware they will need to shovel the stairs and deck if it snows during their stay - shovels are provided! While our one-lane private roads are plowed and salted - there can be times the roads can be hazardous to drive and you may have to walk in - so please come prepared with your winter gear and energy!

Grand Haven - home of one of the top 13 beaches in the WORLD according to Travel & Leisure magazine review in March 2012!
Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: Same owner last 47 years, rebuilt in 1989. Yes, everything had to be carried up the 78 stairs. I also remember carrying sleeping children up those stairs after nights sitting around a bonfire at the beach. The ability to walk up stairs without assistance is suggested. Those stairs though have served as my daily workout and kept me healthy.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven, MI, USA:
Small and very private association of 22 property owners. Beautiful shared Lake Michigan beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Private, quiet wooded getaway but close to town and shopping. Homes nestled in the sand dunes with an abundance of trees and wildlife. Enjoy quiet walks and sunsets along the shores of Lake Michigan.
