About Sandy

My wife and I have been married for eight years. Sandy is a retired kindergarten teach and I am a retired quality assurance engineer. Sandy still substitutes for Grand Haven Schools.

We both enjoy being very active, which includes cycling, snowshoeing, dancing, motorcycle trips, and hiking which usually takes in some Geocaching. During the winter months we have been taking dance lesson for over five years. For the past couple years we always seem to be traveling during the month of March. It is that time of year the snow condition has pretty much deteriorated and the spring and summer play weather hasn't arrived yet. During the summer months we have no desire to travel since the west Michigan area is its own playground.

We have totally enjoyed meeting people from various parts of the country that have stayed at the "beach house" . It has helped us to plan some of our own trips.

If you are curious as to why we charge $60 for credit card transaction, that is what VRBO charges us. There isn't any charge if E-check is used

Why Sandy chose Spring Lake

Why this property? Well to start with, it is the only rental property on Spring Lake that can view the sailboats catching the prevailing westerlies winds as that trip up and down the lake all from the view of the dinning area or from the front patio area. Or enjoy the morning calm with your early morning coffee as you look over the lake as the fishermen make it to their favorite fishing spots.

The property is easy walking distance to the Spring Lake public beach which has a full time lifeguard. If you desire a much larger beach area, there is always the beaches Grand Haven, which is only about 10 minutes away. There you a choice of Grand Haven Michigan State Park, or Grand Haven public beach.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, there are free concerts all within about ten minute drive. On Friday nights Muskegon has a free concerts in Hackley park with beverages and food available to purchase. As a rule, need to bring your own chairs.

For those that want to have a workout before relaxing on the local beaches, there are several bike paths in the area. The one closest to the property is only a short distance, maybe 100 yards up the hill. The bike path travels along the circumference of lake, about 9 miles. If you are into Geocaching, there are several close to the bike path.

The closest boat launch is only about mile away. This launch is on Spring Lake which connect to lake Michigan.

There is a amusement park about 30 minute drive. This is duel park, water and rides. Discount tickets are available.

As a rule, Grand Haven, Spring Lake, or Muskegon always has some special event every week. Check local media for update.

This is just few to do items, but I am limited by the web site to list more. You can contact me at ^!^$)@!$#$. It is advisable to contact us directly to so to prevent additional cost from the web host. They prevent me from listing num. directly, so little decoding is needed.

What makes this house unique

What make this property so unique. I think that might already be listed in "Why This Property" What really adds icing to the cake is the people of the western Michigan area. The people are generally over the top friendly. Don't be surprise that people will wish a you good morning just because. It is what makes this area special to me. You can find special places to reflect and relax and recenter one self.

Great location and sizeable beach home

  • 4 of 5

If you’re looking for a large place to stay with gorgeous views, you found it! Sandy and Tom will take great care of you and make sure you have all you need. They have a wonderful home and it’s lake front! The bedrooms and living area are spacious. Although the house is a bit dated every room and bathroom were extremely clean. There were two showers however they couldn’t seem to be used at the same time without lacking enough water pressure to shower both people. Also one of he 5 bedrooms did not have air conditioning which made it uncomfortable for sleeping on hot nights. Happy we found such a great place and will be returning for sure.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Spring Lake Beach House. The house easily accommodated our group of 9 adults, everything was very clean and the view of the lake was beautiful. We spent many nights out at the picnic table watching the sun go down over the lake. We were within walking distance of the Village Baker where we had some very good pizza. Everything was close by, we could walk to the Spring Lake public access beach, or take a short drive to Grand Haven Beach or North Beach Park. Sandy and Tom were great to work with and we would highly recommend this home.

Perfect for Groups of All Ages!

  • 5 of 5

The view of Spring Lake from the front porch of this home is fantastic. Sit and enjoy the sound of the water as you sip your morning cup of coffee. The bike\walking path is so close be sure to bring your bike when staying here. The beach will provide you with many hours of water fun and because Spring Lake is an inland lake it is much warmer than Lake Michigan. Don't miss Lake Michigan during your stay in the area though.

The home is a perfect vacation home with a lot of bedrooms and big kitchen for when you don't want to go to a local restaurant.

Our group took advantage of a local fishing charter and caught many huge salmon and trout. Nothing like grilled fresh fish.

Many golf courses close by and don't miss the Village Baker restaurant just a 7 minute walk from this house. Our group decided to have breakfast there every morning.

The house was very clean and has a washer and dryer and a garage for your car and bikes Our group of 10 had no issues with the internet service The owners were very accommodating and returned our call promptly when we had a question. I plan to rent this home again in the future.

Family reunion in Spring Lake

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house and had a great time. The view and easy access to Spring Lake are fantastic. It's also convenient to the nice running trail that runs through Spring Lake which we took advantage of multiple times. The house was clean and everything worked well. Our only issue was the house (at that time) only had wired internet which was a little flaky. The owner was very responsive in helping us with the situation and did his best to help us out. I would highly recommend this property for a visit any time of year to Spring Lake.
