Classsic Lake Michigan Beach House

Rare vacation home close to town with its own private beach, tennis court, playground, basketball hoop etc. There are no homes or condos in downtown Grand Haven that have a private beach. It is a long walk because parking can be difficult to find at the public beaches.

In Grand Haven, nestled in a wooded dune right off Lake Michigan, There are 3 small bedrooms + loft. Our cottage is part of a very small private association. You can see, smell and hear the lake form the cottage, a stones throw away.

Home is only 3/4 mile south of lighthouse - town and shares over 1500' of private Lake Michigan frontage with only twenty cottages! This is not a misprint. This unique association is directly on the beach with no busy roads to cross and just a few steps down to beach. Park in front of cottage and the low beach stairs are 100' feet away. Beach is beautiful soft sand. No Rocks. Walk for miles on our beaches!

Kayak for your use on beach.

Beach chairs and toys also available for your use.

Fine golf courses wtihin minutes! Great bike paths. Boat launch in town.

If you visited cottages in the area as a kid this will bring back fond memories. The interior is finished in knotty pine, light colors, lots of windows and very airy. New sectional and flat screen TV. The place is made for relaxing! If you must work we have high speed internet with WIFI.

It includes updated kitchen with dishwasher and everything to make a gourmet meal!

Bathroom with two sinks shower and Jacuzzi tub.

All the comforts of home including: Fireplace, High Speed Internet ,WIFI, TV, ,NETFLIX, DVD, CD, Bluetooth Sound System, microwave, cappuccino maker,2 separate dining areas, breakfast bar with stools etc.

Outside there are two large decks, gas grill, and a outdoor fireplace for cool evenings. We have a large table that seats 6-8 and another picnic table. Several comfortable chairs for relaxing.

You can see the big blue lake through the pine trees. You can also hear the waves and enjoy the cool breezes night and day. It is very peaceful and secluded. You will not believe you are less then a mile from large grocery stores!

Sleeps 7. Bring bed linens and bath-beach towels, everything else is here!

3 Full-size beds one queen.

No Pets (pet allergies in our family) - No Smoking.

There is no cleaning fee! We ask you to leave the home exactly the way you found it. If you prefer to use our cleaners let us know the fee is 75. .

This is our vacation home, not a full time rental. We prefer to think of you as a friend using our cottage then a renter.

Note: We sometimes have extra days available during the week. Please inquire with dates. The worst we can say is no. Thanks.

** SINGLE FAMILIES ONLY. Grandparents OK.

**Spring and fall color at discount rates.

*This is not a house in town with a mile walk to a crowded public beach with little parking, you will end up walking a mile or more to reach the public beach. It is not a cottage in Spring Lake with a 2 mile drive to Lake Michigan and town. Don't be fooled, if you are looking for a beach house check into the the baech access. If you like to stay off the water then town is a great spot to look.

We want you to enjoy your time here matter where you stay.

About the Owner

We purchased this special place by chance, with children on the way. Our two boys are now teenagers and been here every summer of there life. The memories are endless and they seem to appreciated it more as they get older. We still keep toys and books from there little days for other tikes to play with. We sometimes talk about an addition or such and determine it is a great beach house that works perfectly for us.

We love the beach and are blessed to be on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I never get tired of the word "Beach"!

We love the Tree house. The first thing you say when you walk in is "cool"! So unique, never seen anything like it. It is a real Beach House.
This was our second time in this great cottage. The private beach is amazing with almost no one on it. It is an easy walk to the lighthouse or town. The cottage is always clean and neat as a pin. Everything we needed was there. The kids love reading the signs on the walls and looking for new photographs all over the home. The decks are great, very comfortable with a huge dining table and new gas grill. If the beach gets to hot the deck offers AC like temps surrounded by large trees and a good view of the lake. We enjoyed the deck fireplace for smors and long talks more then once. The kids headed to the playground after the lake. Its only a couple hundred feet from the cottage and provides parents some quiet time.

The town of Grand Haven, no more then a 5 minute ride from the house. It offers shopping, dining and entertainment in a quaint, walkable atmosphere. The boardwalk and lighthouse along the river is a must. Cant wait to be back next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
Cheers!
