Our Windy Dune built after the turn of the century on the sandy North Shore of Grand Haven, Windy Dune is a family summer dwelling, with pictures, candles, and family collections reminiscent of years-gone-by. A large, screened front porch facing the “big lake” is the setting for reading, talking, or just watching the weather change. 100 feet of sugar sandy Lake Michigan beach is the site of boating, swimming, or just hiking to the pier and watching sailboats, yachts, and ocean-going tankers come and go. Directly across the street, the Kitchel/Lindquist and Harold Hartger Dune Preserves chronicle beachscape, which allows for peaceful hikes through pines, over marshes, and across protected sand dunes. North Shore Marina is a 5 minute walk from Windy Dune as is the north pier.

Great Michigan cottage, steps to the lake Thank you for sharing your home.
We had a wonderful time, location and beach were perfect, and the house was accommodating.
The favorite part of our stay at Windy Dune was the beach. We had super access and the size of the beach was better than most along the lakefront. The beds were comfortable and the master bedroom was large enough to put 3 toddler mattresses on the floor. There is no air-conditioning but the weather was very cooperative and the lake breeze through the house was excellent. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, and utensils as well as plates, cups, and glasses. The house is very old and it was like stepping back in time. The drawbacks were 1. there was no washer or dryer so we needed to take a trip to the laundromat, 2. the sleeping rooms had no closets but there were a few drawers in the dressers that helped, and 3. if the weather had not been as cool as it was, I believe it may have been very uncomfortable with just fans.
It was like stepping back in time. An unforgettable beach experience. Peaceful, kicked back. I will hope to revisit annually.
