About The Owner

Having been part of Grand Haven's Wonderful Summers for years and years, (just can't seem to get enough of it.) and Long before we purchased our cottage ,we would walk from the Marina to downtown shopping and restaurants and pass by "Cottage Charm" on the way secretly wishing to stay in such a Charming Cottage (hence the name) We haven't been able to retire quite yet in this beautiful town of Grand Haven but until then , you can rent Cottage Charm and see for yourself how special it is.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The Owner chose Grand Haven

When this property became available it was a dream come true. It is literally close to most everything for the Summer Vacationer, and just far away enough to escape the Noise of the Traffic and the Sand in your britches. You can hear musical fountain from the property most nights and even people watch on the front porch as they stroll past coming to and fro the downtown events.

What makes this cottage unique

We are only two blocks away from most things. The trollies at chinook pier run several times a day and can take you to the State Park or to the Beach. Or how about less than a three minute walk to Central Park where they have Live music on Tuesday nights or an occasional wedding on the weekend ,or four minutes to the Library , or Lucy's Deli . Or walk across the street and get your hair done. We are close folks, and we supply most things ,paper products,linens, towels, ( but not beach towels) even baggies. Come join us, you'll be delighted. We'll leave the light on for you. Thank you for your inquiry, Jan and Jerad

Cottage Charm - Downtown - 3 BR/1.5 BA Newly Remodeled Home
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Nice home and very close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed our time in Grand Haven. This house is small but has a great layout and a very nice use of space. The master bedroom is on the main floor. The lower level has two bedrooms and this worked great for our teen children because lots of privacy and we could not hear them at all! This house is great for older kids and probably good for young children as it would be very quiet for sleeping (away from main level).

It only has one shower so you must share that- the bath downstairs does not have a shower. The laundry was very convenient and owner provided laundry soap which was so nice. The home is walking distance to downtown. Owner provided bikes and we used them to get to the beach and just to tour the area. The parking is a little tight but there are 2 spots so that was great! The owner is super nice to work with and very prompt on answering my questions.

Perfect Family Fit

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Cottage Charm for a long Labor Day weekend. This was our second stay at this absolutely awesome cottage. The owner takes pride in continually updating the property. The cottage is very clean, roomy, and comfortable! Location is hard to beat, being about 3 blocks from shopping and a very walkable distance to about everything. Example: Now we like to walk, but we walked to the Beach & Lighthouse and back from the cottage twice on Sunday! We will stay at Cottage Charm again! We have stayed in several places in Grand Haven in past years, but we have found the place for us at Cottage Charm!
