Great for a long, fun weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home (both upper and lower units) for a long weekend for my wife's 30th birthday weekend. We had a total of 12 adults stay the whole weekend and the house worked out great. The main living room and adjoining dinning room of the lower unit easily held all of us and we spent lots of time there.

The house is about a 5-10 minute walk to the down town area depending on where you are going, which was awesome for walking to bars at night and breakfast the next morning (try Dee-Lite for breakfast).

I might recommend bringing an air mattress, as one of the upstairs bedrooms just has a couch in it but has lots of open space that worked perfect for an air mattress.

Overall this place was just what we were looking for for a fun weekend away!

Perfect Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upper unit and absolutely loved it. The unit was exactly as described plus more. With its spacious living room, patio over looking the tree lined street, and additional separate area with futon sleeper, this unit easily accommodates 4. The property was spotless when we arrived and well taken care of with all amenities provided for. The character of the home really added to the vacation experience. The landlord was a pleasure doing business with. She was very accommodating when I had a change of arrival plans and responded to my inquiries quickly. She made this trip hassel free. A+ for customer service. The house is within a short walking distance of everything that Grand Haven has to offer and for the more adventurous spirt, within biking distance of the outliers of Grand Haven and the surrounding communities. The state park pass that comes with the rental allows for access to the beaches for a day at the water's edge. While in Grand Haven, Fortino's is a must for an old world grocery shopping experience. Downtown Dogs offers the best hot dogs in town with 1950s charm. For evening entertainment, Odd Side Ales, one of the smallest breweries in the country, has a unique assortment of brews on tap and excellent live entertainment. Our stay at the Grand Victorian was extremely enjoyable and would definitely stay here again.

This cottage is well cared for older home. It was well-stocked, clean, and the property manager was friendly.

In summary, I kept getting the feeling that whoever kept this house kept it with love.

Great house in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the lower level for two nights and would have loved to stay longer. There were four of us staying: me, my husband and our two kids (ages 1 & 3). The house is very child-friendly. It's in a great location- walking distance to many shops and restaurants. You can walk to the beach from there, but it was a little far for our little ones. My only complaint is that the master bed (king size) was a little uncomfortable, but I tend to find that problem everywhere I go. Sheets, towels and dishes were provided (bring your own spices). It was great to not have to pack all that stuff.

It's a beautiful house- we hope to go back next summer for a longer stay.
