Captain's Cottage

Captain's Cottage

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 25, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 11 Sleeps

Old Victorian Home With Lovely Wrap-Around Porch for Relaxing and Entertaining

4 bedrooms, 1 sleeping alcove, 3 full baths, sleeps 8-11

Enjoy a beautiful turn-of-the-century home built by a Lake Michigan Merchant Marine Captain. The house is located three blocks from downtown shops, galleries and restaurants and the same distance to the boardwalk leading to beautiful Lake Michigan. The Captain's Cottage sleeps up to eleven and has three separate living areas -- main floor, second floor and a studio apartment. While you can enjoy each others company for meals and interaction, you can also have privacy when desired.

The main floor of the Captain's Cottage, decorated in costal eclectic style, has a spacious kitchen, large dining room seating eleven, living room with gas fireplace, master bedroom with queen bed, and second bedroom with a queen and daybed. The kitchen is well-stocked with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. The second floor has a bedroom with a queen, a sleeping alcove with two twin beds, a living room, kitchen and full bath. The studio apartment has a double bed, full bath and combination refrigerator/stovetop burners.

While other cottage advertisements mention porches and sundecks, the Captain's Cottage wrap-around covered porch is one of the amenities guest enjoy the most. One section is large enough to gather all guests together for conversation and refreshments, another section has an octogonal picnic table and the third section has a comfortable wicker sofa for quiet reading or napping.

Saturday to Saturday rentals.

Older home with lots of folk art in quiet area of town so requires 'gentle' use.

No smoking or pets.

About the Owner

We live in the Grand Rapids area about 40 miles from Grand Haven. We purchased the property so we could spend time with our family at Lake Michigan. We use the cottage about 10 weeks a year and rent it out another 5-6 weeks.

Exceptional Rental!

  • 5 of 5
This rental is absolutely charming! Location alone makes this rental perfect for your stay in Grand Haven, but the decor, the front porch, and the space of this home are so comfortable you may do more relaxing than sight seeing. Perfect for a large family or group. I highly recommend this rental and we'll no doubt be back again!

Perfect spot for a large family

  • 5 of 5
We love staying at the Captain's Cottage. It has become a family tradition and is the highlight of our summer. The location is perfect for walking downtown or to the beach and the size of the house is great for our kids to explore and to invite friends to stay with us. Everything we need is provided on site or just a few blocks away.

Great house for a large family

  • 5 of 5
This house was a perfect fit for our family of 13 (we had 8 adults, 3 kids and 2 babies under 1). The house was divided nicely so if we wanted to be together we could, but we also had space to get away. It was a little walk to the beach and we could walk with some of the kids, but we also would drive. The house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood. Todd was always very helpful when we had questions. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone that wants to stay in the Grand Haven area.

Location

From the Owner

We were drawn to the Captain's Cottage because of the large wrap-around porch. We and our guests spend lots of time out there morning, afternoon, and evening. We also like that the house is large enough so that if you want some privacy you can go to one of the many rooms and be by yourself when needed.
