About the Property

Perfect For Small Family Or Couples, Honeymoon, Baby-Moon !

Experience Lake Michigan the way it used to be! Lovingly restored 1930s beachfront cottage, located in a quiet residential area. The cottage sits on a wooded double lot nestled on a dune facing Lake Michigan. There is a private stairway leading to nearly 200 feet of private beach.

Just 6 miles south of Grand Haven but a world away. Wake up to the sound of birds and sip coffee while watching boats sail by, enjoy sunset dining in the comfort of the screened in porch or on the outside patio deck, then fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

The Cottage offers free Wi-Fi, a newly renovated kitchen with a grind and brew coffee maker, stove, microwave, refrigerator, and pantry area.

Dining area features banquette seating. A charming antique walnut table is perfect for family meals or a game of Scrabble.

Sleeps 4 comfortably. There is 1 bedroom with a double bed and a sofa in the living room that converts to a queen-size bed. A pack-and-play is available upon request.


The cabin includes a bathroom with a shower stall. There is also an outdoor shower, with tempered water, adjacent to the outside deck, ideal for rinsing off before entering the cottage.

Gas BBQ grill on the outside deck allows for grilling. Savor the great Lake view and one-of-a-kind sunsets as you dine at the picnic table.

Escape from the hustle-bustle of everyday life. Disconnect from technology and reconnect with your family, friends, or yourself. Take long walks on the beach, enjoy the water, build sand castles, bring bikes to ride along the trails. On rainy days, watch the storm blow across the lake, be amazed by the lightning show or take the opportunity to play board games, read or explore nearby Grand Haven. At night, appreciate the thousands of stars in the sky or take advantage of the community's fire pits.

For other recreation, Kirk Park is 1/2 mile away with nice hikes and Pigeon Lake is a few miles south for putting in boats and/or kayaks. These are easily accessed via the bike trails that run directly in front of the entrance to our neighborhood.

We believe you'll fall in love with the place and look forward to it being your getaway place at Lake Michigan.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1940

Why the Owner Chose West Olive, MI, USA:
This cottage was purchased by my grandfather upon his return from WWII in the 1940's. It is still in our family and several generations have enjoyed making memories here. We treat it gently and with love, and ask you to do the same.
