Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting from the Pacific Northwest for Thanksgiving and were very fortunate to have stayed at this wonderful house. It's in a great location, and provided beautiful accommodations for our entire family. The house was immaculate and the décor outstanding. Jim and Dawn are wonderful hosts - and made us out-of-towners feel welcome and well informed of local attractions. We look forward to coming back again - and I would recommend the Jackson Street Retreat without hesitation.

Another great week at the Jackson Street Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year that my family has stayed at the Jackson Street Retreat for our annual summer beach vacation. We were able to enjoy all that the Jackson Street Retreat and Grand Haven had to offer. We caught the tail end of Coast Guard Festival with the amazing fireworks and other exciting activities. As always, Jim and Dawn (owners) were terrific hosts making the entire rental process a breeze. We will definitely recommend the Jackson Street Retreat to friends and family.

Always a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd summer at this property, and it was even better than the first. Dawn and Jim continue to be hospitability hosts, leaving no detail out. House is always clean and well organized. It is in a great location, walking distance to everything, but still away from the busiest areas of town. We were able to go to Sagatauk for a day where we find a great art barn for the kids to create at, went to Holland, Michigan's Adventure...The area is not lacking with things to do. There is a great porch for people watching and playing cards at night, and the kids love the big basement to put on their shows for us. Every restaurant we ate at, had great food and the beach was beautiful. We stayed at this property with another family, and there was plenty of room for the 8 of us! We never even used one of the bedrooms upstairs. I would definitely recommend staying at this property!

Beautiful & Comfortable Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jackson Street Retreat! We had two families (4 adults, 4 kids) and plenty of space for all of us. Lots to do within walking distance. Everything we needed to cook most all our meals in the house. A great front porch, plenty of games, comfortable beds and beautifully remodeled bathrooms! We love Grand Haven and would definitely return to this rental!

impressive property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this immaculate property last week. I have rented from VRBO several times and this was my favorite property. Not only is this home spotless the bedding and furnishings appeared brand new. We felt like we were the first renters to stay at this property. All you need to bring is your personal belongings and toiletries as this home has everything you will need for your stay.

The owners, Jim and Dawn, met us at check in to show us the house and answer any questions. They are very personable and kind. The home is a 5 minute walk to the downtown area where there are restaurants and shops. The beach is probably a 20-25 minute walk, but we would not know as we never made it to the beach as there are so many other things to do in Grand Haven and western Michigan.

If we ever vacation again in Grand Haven we will absolutely stay at this property or Jim and Dawn's new beachfront property, because we know how well they take care of their rental units.

thanks Jim and Dawn for a great stay!

Jackson Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family had a wonderful time at Jackson St house. It was very relaxing and comfortable. Easy to walk into town or the river walk. Close to the train park for young children. House was very clean and the owners were very nice and thoughtful.
