About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This home is decorated very nicely, lots of good light. Very kid friendly. You will feel right at home! Small private fenced back yard with grill/table and seating for 6.

Three bedrooms; master with queen bed is large enough for portable crib and kids in sleeping bags. The other two bedrooms have a double bed in each.

Fully equipped kitchen (sorry, no dishwasher) and dining room allows for cooking in if you want. Large living room and a family room with pullout sofa allows to sleep 8 comfortably. Linens include beach towels to lessen your packing needs, also lots of board games.

The train track is right next to us. It comes through twice at night. Trains don't run during the day. There is always a jar of pennies at the house so the kids can place a penny on the tracks and look for it the next morning.

The charming downtown of Grand Haven is a short, walkable 5 blocks away. Shopping, great restaurants, bars and activities for kids and adults. Chinook Pier is 4-5 blocks away where you can rent bikes or boats, get ice cream, play miniature golf, or take the boardwalk out to the lighthouse and beach. If you go all the way to the beach, it is about a mile walk/ride.

Grand time in Grand Haven.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister, & I spent 3 nights in Grand Haven at this sweet house. Mostly we just slept here, didn't cook as we ate at a bunch of really tasty restaurants. However, the home is well-equipped for those who choose to cook. Comfy spaces for sitting and reading or watching TV. Nice enclosed backyard. Enjoyed our time. Only complaint was that the bed in back bedroom is not very comfortable and needed to have sheets that fit better. Renee, the owner, has been very prompt in replying to any inquiries I had. Thanks!

Perfect Price Point

  • 5 of 5

What a charming house nestled in the heart of Grand Haven. Easy walk to downtown area (just 4 or 5 short blocks away). Renee was most accommodating to our last minute request. The house was very spacious and had many basic items that renters are looking for (i,e sugar, salt, pepper, coffee liners, storage bags, etc.).

Plus, it was great to be able to bring our whole family as this is a pet-friendly home and the downtown is very open-minded to having your dog accompany you to most places including some of the outdoor eating establishments such as Dee Lite.

A fun local attraction is the Grand Haven Musical Fountain. It is a synchronized display of water and lights. The show runs nightly during the summer months. Show begins at dusk and runs about 25-30 minutes.

Also, having the dog you must visit Kirk Park just south of Grand Haven on Lakeshore Drive. Dog lovers will delight in the off-leash beach at the south end of the park.

We will definitely come back again.

Charming cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

Renee keeps the place impeccably clean, the amenities are excellent, and we were all comfortable. The bedrooms are far apart so if there is a large group traveling through, no one really hears the others

Quick trip to Lake Michigan

  • 4 of 5

Thus home was clean and would work very well for a family. It was just two of us, for two nights, and we didn't even use the coffee pot or put a thing in the frig. By the time we left I had the sheets in the dryer and the towels in the wash. I know it was policy but I'm feeling a bit overcharged at the $125 cleaning fee.

It was convenient but for just the two of us to sleep we should have just taken a hotel room. That said, families with 3 or 4 kids would have been comfortable here and the owner also has beach towels for your use.

Fit our large family very well!

  • 5 of 5

The home was so comfortable and clean! We have a large family and it was nice to have two living spaces that were separated. We were able to have the younger kids in one living room sleeping while the rest of us could stay up and not disturb them. The pictures don't do this home justice. It was beautiful and the owner was very friendly and easy to get in contact with. I would definitely rent here again!

Why The Owner chose Grand Haven

In our opinion, Grand Haven is the best town along Lake Michigan. We love that the water is so close to downtown. From our house, we can walk downtown to have dinner, walk the boardwalk out to see the sunset on the lake and walk back home without having to find parking.

It is always a great day to be in Grand Haven!
