Looking for a great little Lake Michigan beach town for vacation, look no further that Grand Haven. From walking on the 2.5 mile boardwalk out to the iconic red lighthouse and beach, sandcastle building at Grand Haven State Park, bountiful fresh local produce at the bi-weekly farmers market, cute restaurants and shopping in downtown, skate park, sand dunes, boating, fishing and so much more. Grand Haven has numerous festivals and events all summer including Coast Guard festival the end of July!
This house is a new rental in Grand Haven as of the 2013 season. Owner spent summers in Grand Haven growing up and fell in love with the town, and hopes you will too!
Year Purchased: 2012
About: I am a Colorado native, who left her heart in Grand Haven, MI as a young child. I love hiking, travel, really anything that gets me outside, photography, mentoring high school and college students and time spent with family and friends.
Why Grand Haven, MI, USA:
Grand Haven is my Dad's hometown and I spent time there each summer when we would take my Grandma Ruth (for whom the cottage is named) back to see family and friends. I love the sweet simplicity of life that Grand Haven has to offer! Ruth's Retreat was an idea I came up with over a year ago and have loved getting to spend more time in town during this process, re-connecting with extended family and friends along the way. Grandma Ruth as she was affectionately known to many 'adopted' grandchildren as well as her own was a woman whose home was always a welcoming place full of fellowship, laughter and fresh made goodies. It is my hope that Ruth's Retreat will embody this woman and the legacy she left.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the cozy feeling the home has, from curing up in the living room with a cup of coffee, or filling the large dining room that adjoins the kitchen with family and friends, or sitting on the wooden floor to play a game of checkers with my favorite little 4 year old friend. I love sitting on the deck at night and hearing the musical fountain playing down at the waterfront. The house was built in the 1920's and holds a story that we have yet to fully uncover, but I love the quirks like the fact that each radiator in the house is a different style.
