Perfect house for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We weren't really sure what to expect from any of this. The pictures looked great, and we'd heard really good things about Grand Haven, but we didn't really know how well the house would work for our family, and how close we'd really be to things. As it turns out, we checked both boxes pretty easily. We had two families with two kids each, plus a set of grandparents. We were all very comfortable. In addition, the walk to downtown Grand Haven was very simple, and it was a quick bike ride to the state park beach. In fact, we'd recommend a bike trailer if you have smaller children. You don't have to pay to get into the beach (like you would if you drove a car) and when it's busy, it's really fast to get there. The owners couldn't be more gracious and accommodating, and we would definitely work with them again.

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

We have a family of nine, with three little ones. This was a good pick because the bunk room has room for kids and parents, and was located on the first floor. Owners met us there and were great. We were provided everything we needed. House is super clean. Kitchen has nice furnishings. Would surely rent again.

Perfect for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a family vacation! It is within easy walking distance of downtown and the waterfront in Grand Haven. There is plenty of room for a larger family or group and is great for a family of four like ours. The decor is very nicely done and it is very clean and well thought out. The owners, Jim and Dawn, are very nice and accommodating and have really taken care with providing a relaxing, comfortable environment for visitors. We couldn't have been more pleased with the home and will look to rent it again the next time we come to Grand Haven.

I spent the month of February here and everything was great! The location was perfect for walking to coffee shops, restaurants, bakery, shops and just to walk. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I especially enjoyed the fabulous shower on the cold winter days. I am already planning to return to Grand Haven and will definitely be contacting Jim & Dawn. Thank you for sharing with me!

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.
