About Dawn

Grand Haven has always held a special place in our hearts since it is where Tim and I first met on the beach back in 1988. We are now a family of six with three daughters and one son.

We love the old cottage charm yet modern updates of our cottage and so enjoy hearing about all of the great memories made while staying here. Many of our guests return year after year with one returning for the 25th year in a row.

Dawn purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dawn chose Grand Haven

We loved the location of our cottage as it is close to everything (beach, pier, channel, YMCA, downtown) AND it is located on a quiet culdesac street (off of the busy Harbor View Drive). We also have plenty of parking which is rare considering our proximity to the beach and in comparison to the majority of cottages in our area (we loved this feature:)

Another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in the lower part of the cottage and it was great. It felt open and we had plenty of space for our 5 adults and 1 child. Having a deck and a private tree covered patio with a grill was a bonus. The cottage was clean and well stocked and having fans in each room was helpful. We used the bikes and lake toys and had a blast and walked to everything. Great place to stay!

Good value, great location

  • 4 of 5

A good value for the money, but not a lot of natural light (downstairs unit) and you can definitely hear your neighbors above. Very clean though and the proximity to GH state park is excellent.

Fantastic two weeks in Grand Haven!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry I'm a little tardy with the review, I normally don't do online reviews, but I'll make an exception here. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 19 Emmett Crt, lower unit. This is the first time we've stayed for two weeks, it was the middle of July, and we completely lucked out with the weather, with high-70s and low 80s almost every day, while back home was baking in triple-digit heat and humidity!

Tim and Dawn really are great people, and any concerns we had were dealt with immediately, we couldn't have asked for better responses from them. We'll definitely be placing this address high on our list for the future!
