Overview

About the property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

SUMMARY:

Our Cottage is available for rent year round in Grand Haven, Michigan. Walk to the beach, the pier, downtown, Mulligan's Hollow, Duncan Woods, the YMCA, the town ski hill, cross-country trails-- everything you love about Grand Haven is just steps away! You cannot believe how cute this home is inside and out! Families have been summering in this cottage for over a century! Just $900-3,750/week for one of the cutest beach area cottages in all of Grand Haven!

THE LOCATION:

While we are right near the beach, you can still walk everywhere in town within 20 minutes! Park your car and forget about it. The Cottage sits on the bluff just above the City of Grand Haven Beach and the Grand Haven State Park! Peterson Ridge is a small path on the plateau between Edward Ave and the bluff over the beach. There are NO cars on Peterson Ridge, so it is very private and kid-friendly. Our cottage backs to the Woods of Mulligan's Hollow with miles of trails separating the beachfront cottages from downtown Grand Haven! The woods keep the cottage cool on even the warmest days!

OUTSIDE THE HOME:

Rinse off in the HOT WATER outdoor shower and de-beach on the front porch with many hooks for toys, suits, towels and flip-flops. The 2nd floor deck has great sun from mid-morning-mid afternoon plus a small view of Lake Michigan! There is a very, nice gas grill outside off the kitchen. There is a fantastic nap hammock overlooking Mulligan's Hollow behind the cottage. The outdoor fireplace is perfect for s'mores and Michigan wine.

INSIDE THE COTTAGE:

The first floor has a large porch, living room, fireplace, dining room and adorable kitchen with nice, clean appliances. There are 2 sofas and a huge sectional in the living room around the fireplace and tv. The dining table is set for 6, but can accommodate 10 with 2 leaves. There are dozens of board games, puzzles, books, toys, beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, to enjoy. Each bedroom has windows on 2 walls for great evening cross-breezes and the sound of waves!

THE ROOMS:

Bedroom #1 on the 2nd floor has a Queen bed, closet and dresser overlooking the 2nd floor deck.

Bedroom #2 on the 2nd floor has a Queen bed and closet overlooking Mulligan's Hollow.

Bedroom #3 on the 2nd floor has a full-size bed, a twin bed, a closet and dresser overlooking 2nd floor porch.

About Cory Robertson

I am a father of 2 boys (ages 8 and 10) who are my life! We love being at the cottage and doing all there is to do in this very special spot!

Cory Robertson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Cory Robertson chose West Central

My mother's family is from Grand Haven, and I have been summering here my whole life. I wanted to be out at the beach, but also wanted to be near enough to the pier to walk everywhere. Our home sits right on the edge of Mulligan's Hollow for hiking, trail-riding, dog-walking and wildlife adventuring! We are so close to the beach that you can come up and down all day for supplies, naps, snacks, tantrums without giving up your whole day at the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

My hammock is my favorite afternoon spot when the boys go down for their nap after a day at the beach.

Walking the beach early morning and at sunset is heavenly.

The Musical Fountain is as charming and gratifying as it is hokey. Who cares if it is silly? You're eating Dairy Treat on a hillside over the river with a 1000 others who have completely forgotten last week's rat-race and are embracing a wonderful summer ritual in Grand Haven. This is not to be missed!

QUIET, QUAINT, COMFORTABLE BEACH CLASSIC

  • 5 of 5

2nd time a group of 6 adults have used this house for meetings - and will again. So quiet that one sleeps better here than at home! Everything works, the rooms are comfortable in size (first floor is particularly generous) and convenient to everything.

Perfect Mini-Moon Escape

  • 5 of 5

My newly wed husband and I were looking for a relaxing escape for a few days to recuperate. The cottage was perfect for this! Everything was clean and orderly. Only a few minute walk to the beach and there were nearby wooded parks for walking as well. Parking was very close to the house. I would suggest having an umbrella if it is raining. The outdoor shower with hot water was great for rinsing off feet after walking along the beach.

2 Quick Suggestions:

1) Putting trash bags in the bathroom trash cans. I didn't search through the cabinets to find trash bags so I am not sure if there were any. But I put old grocery store bags that I had in my car in the bathroom trash cans. I always try to consolidate all our trash before leaving into one bag for easier clean up for the owner. Trash bags also means that hopefully the actual cans don't have to be cleaned out so frequently.

2) Disposing the used bars of soap in the shower. We brought our own toiletries to use, but we thought it was odd to see used bars of soap in the shower.

Vintage charm.

  • 5 of 5

We had a short but very sweet stay at, Mary Anne. Nice location, very close to the beach and even closer if you don't mind a steep trip down the sidewalk. It's a loved and well equipped home. The stairwell to the upstairs is a bit treacherous, but that can be expected in a cottage of this age. We loved it and found it perfectly accommodating. The owner was very kind and helpful. I would consider renting there again.

Love love love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this sweet cottage several times over the past few years and enjoyed each getaway. For families vacationing together this cottage is just perfect offering both hikes in the woods or lazy days at the beach. Can't wait till next year!
