vacation rental description

As you turn off the main road onto the 500 foot long winding wooded
lane, your anticipation grows. When you pull up to the back of the
house, you can already smell the fresh, clean breeze coming off of
Lake Michigan. And, when you open the car door, you can hear the
waves. You rush toward the front yard and as you walk to the edge of
the 50 foot bluff, overlooking your private beach, you are
overwhelmed by the beauty of this place. You don’t wait to unpack
the car. You rush down the 60 steps to the beach. You kick off your
shoes and run to the waters edge. You only intend to test the water
but, before you know it you’re in up to your knees, your pants are
wet, and you don’t even care. And, so begins one of the most
memorable vacations you’ll ever experience.

house rental amenities

With three bedrooms upstairs and a children’s dorm in the basement,
there’s plenty of room for large families and small reunions. The
screened in porch is a perfect place to curl up with your
favorite book, write a letter, build a puzzle, or challenge the kids
to a game of gin rummy. The home is air conditioned for those rare
occasions when the cool breeze coming off of the lake isn't enough to
maintain your comfort. And, the living room features a gas fireplace
that can take the chill off of cool, off-season, evenings. The
kitchen is fully equipped and features two microwaves to handle the
rush to "eat fast and get back down to the beach". Two bathrooms,
one with a shower and the other with a tub/shower combination, handle
the call of nature. For those that can't miss their afternoon soap,
even while on vacation, there are three televisions, all with basic
cable, throughout the house. There is also a fairly extensive library of
DVDs.  If you forgot to pack enough socks, have no fear. A washer
and dryer reside in the basement. Search Windhaven on Lake Michigan

traveler reviews for this north muskegon house rental

Beautiful private beach!

Review submitted: August 18, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

Our family just spent a week at Windhaven and it was just wonderful. We normally go to Florida but decided to stay close to home due to a recent addition to our family.....our first grandchild!
If we didn't know better we would have thought we were at the ocean. The house was clean and the beach was perfect.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you so much for staying with us Terri and congratualtions on your grandchild. My son got his toes dipped in Lake Michigan for the first time at three weeks old (He's 34 now) and my first grand daughter at five weeks. As you may have seen on our facebook page our family has been vacationing on Lake Michigan for over 100 years so we make a big deal over that first dip because we know it will be the start of a life long destination with many happy memories. Take care and please keep us in mind for next year.

Perfect Home for a Relaxing Getaway

Review submitted: August 5, 2013   Date of arrival: July 13, 2013

My Husband, Mother, and I rented this home during the week of July 13-20. We were absolutely thrilled with how lovely and comfortable the home was as well as the spectacular beach. The view was gorgeous, and we literally had the beach to ourselves for a majority of the week! There was plently of room to accomodate the occasional friend or family member that would visit us for a day or a night, and it was an extra bonus having those extra amenities (washer and dryer, air conditioning, plenty of beach chairs, etc) available to us. The owner was very kind and offered a list of attractions in the area that might be of interest to us. We had dinner at the Lighthouse one evening which was fantastic, and made the occasional pit stop at the Red Rooster for a nightcap and some good music if you're lucky to catch a good band that night. :) We would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway. My family plans on coming back to Windhaven next summer, and could quite possibly turn into a family tradition!

Recommended for: families with teenagers

Owners response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I appreciate your taking the time to share your experiences with others. After doing this for a few years, I think we have a pretty good system in place and it always makes me happy when our guests like it well enough to return year after year. Thank you again and, I'll look forward to hearing from you in the spring.

Perfect Lake Michigan vacation spot

Review submitted: November 13, 2012   Date of arrival: August 25, 2012

Watch the owner's YouTube videos - Windhaven is exactly as advertised: It's a really nice cozy cottage on a wooded lot with fantastic views from atop the dune bluff. Windhaven has a large deck with a screened-in porch. Amenities include washer/dryer, grill, parking for 5+ cars, and plenty of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc. The secluded, undeveloped beach is spectacular and stretches for miles. And the cottage is withn a few miles of three great public parks: Duck Lake State Park, Pioneer County Park and Muskegon State Park. We stayed the last week in August 2012 and had amazing weather. The owner was responsive to all our inquiries and provided excellent customer service.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: It's always great to get comments like this. Windhaven isn't just a rental property, it's our family vacation home and it's a wonderful feeling when our guests enjoy the experience as much as our own family does. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you'll keep us in mind again for next year.
