Great location - walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are amazing and very accommodating. The location is great - you can see and hear the lake and walk to it. If the weather is bad, take the historic trolley ride. It runs every 30-40 mins. You can even flag it down on the street in front of this house. Check online for times.

Great location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation in Grand Haven. We were there June 17th-22nd. The Condo was directly across the street from a great beach. Walking back and forth for Lunch and anything else we needed was a breeze. It was so convenient! The patio was amazing and we spent a bunch of time out there, when we weren't on the beach! Every meal we ate at the condo was outside. Inside was cozy and the kitchen was great! We can't wait to come back and enjoy the condo again! I can't say enough good things about this rental!

Very well maintained and nicely decorated. Super comfy spot near the Great Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place to stay. We loved the proximity to the lake. Also loved the deck with a gas grill and hearing the waves at night. Decorated very nicely (loved the properties history photos and articles.) A super comfortable spot with many amenities. All the kitchen and cooking supplies needed were available. Beach chairs and toys as well. Board games and a nice DVD selection that appeals to both kids and adults. Washer and dryer. Pamphlets and magazines of area attractions. Go to Mac Woods dune rides and Little Sable Point lighthouse in Silver Lake.

Close to downtown shopping and restaurants.

Our only issue was petty, that being the 1 cup at a time Kureg coffee maker.

Loved our time there, hope to be back.

Great location, spotless, well decorated, and thought of all the little things!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family getaway. The location was great, right by the beach and could hear the waves at night. Quiet street, but walking distance to all the downtown fun.

Nicely decorated, extra clean, and had all the amenities we needed.

We already talked about booking again for next summer!

Wonderful place to stay in Grand Haven

  • 5 of 5

Clean, roomy, cheerful place for a late-summer stay in GH. Near-ideal location just steps away from the state park beach and a pleasant walk along the boardwalk to downtown. The Bruggers were wonderful hosts and were very accommodating. Amazing value for the money. Would definitely book here again. Highly recommended!

Another Incredible Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had no question about renting from the Brugger's again this summer. The location, comfortable setting and gracious hosts are what makes this a six star stay. We have already booked again next year and, based on our track record, will once again find this to be the go to place for a great time in Grand Haven.
