About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage overlooking Lake Michigan

This cottage is completely renovated and updated with all the amenities, including air conditioning. Not that you'll spend a lot of time inside with such easy access to the expansive, sugar-sand beach!

Our beach right-of-way, right outside our front door, is flat (no bluff or stairs). No need to carry chairs with you- adirondack chairs await for you there.

We have a second beach right out our door on Pigeon Lake. We call it the 'baby beach.' It's small, there are little or no waves, and there's even a baby swing. Your kids will make castles all day if you let them, and you can enjoy watching the boats come in and out of the channel.

The master bedroom is downstairs with a full bath.

A spiral staircase takes you to the main living area with a flat screen TV, kitchen with island, dining room table, and sofa and chairs. From this room you can see Lake Michigan and Pigeon Lake. Want even better views? Take the spiral staircase up another level to a lookout.; it's a great place to drink your morning coffee.


Just off the main living area is another full bath and a bedroom with bunk beds. The lower bunk is a full size bed. The upper bunk is a twin.

Want to take a walk? Literally out the front door is a half-mile boardwalk that takes you along Pigeon Lake and out a ways into Lake Michigan. Continue on the road past end of the boardwalk, hang a left when you get to the main road, and you'll find yourself back where you started - a 2 mile loop.

Car: Necessary

Being between Grand Haven and Holland, MI gives us lots of fun things to do all summer long. Holland kicks off the season in May with the Tulip Festival. Memorial Day weekend is the first great beach weekend. There are plenty of 4th of July activities in both cities, and August brings Coast Guard Fest in Grand Haven with the greatest parade you'll ever see.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We each (separately) grew up on the lake. When Rob's father passed away, we used some of the inheritance to invest in a cottage for our children to grow up with summers on the lake as well.

Why the Owner Chose West Olive, MI, USA:
This property has lake views, sits on the corner of Lake Michigan and Pigeon Lake (giving us both the small lake and big lake vibe), has no steps to the beach, and has uninterrupted beach (unlike some property that has barriers every 100 yards marking off the property).

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love our beach. We love that the cottage is halfway between Grand Haven and Holland, so if we want the 'boutique' feel of a small town or if we need to pick up something from a bigger city store, we have access to both.
