Why Josh & Jen Brugger chose Grand Haven

We purchased this historic property in 2013. Originally it was the Oval Inn 'Inn Keepers' residence when the house was a part of what is now the Blue Water Inn. When the door opened up for us to purchase it, we walked through it. What more can we say. It's a blessing to be on the lake and to share it with those who come to visit.

Cozy, close to beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay with our two young children. We knew off the bat that the rental was small and it ended up being fine for the most part. I have to say tho that the pull out couch mattress is pretty uncomfortable. We ended up using the blow up mattress provided on the floor. A couple other things that would have made our stay just a little more enjoyable is a couple tray tables since there is no dining table. We brought little tray tables for the kids, but could have used a couple for the adults. We cooked our own dinner a Couple nights and although there is a small breakfast bar, the ability to eat with the kids would have been nice. The kitchen and bathroom both have a step that lead you into them as well which you couldn't see in the images and took some getting used to. Other th. Those couple things, we had a great time. We could walk to the beach and it was a short drive to town. It was clean and decorated super cute. The owner was around if any questions were had. If we were to come back, we'd look into a larger unit.
