Property description

St. L. Mo. is a cozy cottage nestled on the boardwalk in historic Highland Park. Registered as an historic landmark, Highland Park is a secluded beach community of quaint turn-of-the-century cottages and boardwalks tucked throughout wooded dunes. It is one part bygone Midwestern neighborhood, one part full-fledged Ewok village.

At once rustic, eclectic, kitschy and cozy, St. L. Mo. is both a place out of time and a place for the time of your life. Its camp-like feel is perfect for group getaways and its quiet, woodsy location is perfect for getting away from the world. Grand Haven is exceptionally walkable and bikeable. It is just a short stroll to the Lake Michigan beach as well as the Grand Haven Waterfront Boardwalk into town. St. L. Mo. is clean and comfortable, retains it's old world charm and sleeps 10-12 comfortably in FIVE BEDROOMS. Two downstairs bedrooms, each with one double bed; two upstairs bedrooms, each with one double bed and one twin bed; one upstairs bedroom with one twin bed. There is also one twin bed in the upstairs hallway nook. There is one full bathroom with a clawfoot tub and a separate room with a shower only, both downstairs. We offer a fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher), a washer/dryer, large screened porch and a large outdoor deck with a charcoal grill. The cottage is not air conditioned but fans throughout and lake breezes help keep it comfortable. Linens/towel provided as well as games, puzzles, beach chairs, umbrellas and toys. Being nestled up high on the boardwalk, there are approximately 60 stairs to the cottage from our TWO assigned parking spaces (not handicap accessible.) Guests are expected to follow the guidelines and noise ordinances put forth by the Highland Park Association. NO SMOKING/NO PETS.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: A resident of southeast Michigan, I have enjoyed every summer of my life in Grand Haven, first as a child with my parents and later with my husband and children. It has always been our peaceful refuge from busy city life and a wonderful place to get together with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Haven, MI, USA:
My grandmother's family is from a small farming community near Grand Haven and we have always had many family and friends here. My grandparents rented St. L. Mo. when my mother was a child and bought the cottage in 1964. We have enjoyed every summer here since. The rental of the cottage is not a business, it is our summer home. We offer the cottage as a rental to help offset the ever-increasing costs of maintenance and we live here when there are no guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The sound of the waves on Lake Michigan and the rustle of the leaves on the trees on the wooded dune create an unequaled peaceful atmosphere.
