About the Property

Private, secluded, sanctuary, located 10 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids.

Enjoy great proximity to everything you want to do in West Michigan. Located 5 minutes north of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and 10 minutes from downtown where you can experience Grand Rapids nightlife, museums, and world class entertainment.

Lonely Planet's top U.S. destination for 2014 is Grand Rapids & Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast.

Beach bums, beer lovers, and art enthusiasts agree: there’s a lot to love about western Michigan. Grand Rapids, Michigan’s second-largest city, with over 25 craft breweries in the area, and events like Cool Brews Hot Eats and the Winter Beer Festival (both in February), and the Summer Craft Beer Festival (August), keep the city festive year-round. Hops aside, the secret about Grand Rapids’ has a fabulous art scene is with impressive blooms and Rodin sculptures in the Frederik Meijer Gardens, and the excellent Grand Rapids Art Museum housed in a cool LEED Gold certified building, Grand Rapids is home to the world’s largest art competition, ArtPrize, in which more than 1700 creatives display their masterpieces.
A mere 30 miles away sprawls Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast, perhaps the USA’s most unexpected beach getaway. Some argue that these shores rival Hawaii’s and Southern California’s. Along 300 miles of seemingly endless beaches lie sugar-white dunes, wineries, antiquing, U-pick orchards and berry farms, cider houses, Hemingway haunts.

The suds scene exploded in 2012, when Grand Rapids was voted best beer city in the US by the national Beer Examiner blog. It happened again in 2013. Thank the high per-capita number of craft brewers – more than 25 operate in the area – and their high-quality product for the honor.

Prized for art, Grand Rapids hosts the world's richest and most radical art competition? ArtPrize ( lets more than 1700 painters, sculptors, designers, and performing artists from 45 countries display their pieces around the city for all to see. Artworks pop up everywhere - in banks, parks, bookshops, and yes, breweries. The public then votes on who wins the $350,000 in prize money - including the $200,000 top award, a whopping amount for this sort of contest. The mind-expanding fun takes place from late September through early October.

If you're not in town during ArtPrize, you still have options. The 118-acre Frederik Meijer Gardens ( features impressive blooms and sculptures by Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore, and 30 other A-list chiselers. And the Grand Rapids Art Museum ( fills a sun-drenched, Gold LEED-certified building with 19th- and 20th-century works. European and American masters such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Richard Diebenkorn take pride of place.

Gerald Ford Shrine
Downtown's Gerald R Ford Museum ( is dedicated to Michigan's only president. Snore if you will, but this shrine to the Grand Rapids local is pretty darn cool. Gawk in disbelief at the low-tech burglary tools - the giant tape recorders and bulky lock picks - that launched the Watergate scandal. It was this event that put Ford into the Oval Office in 1974 after Richard Nixon and his vice president, Spiro Agnew, resigned in disgrace. The museum does an excellent job of covering the tumultuous period in US history.
