Clean, beautiful and well-equipped home in a great location for enjoying activities!

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful! The home is large enough for multiple families to enjoy and is perfectly located for enjoying restaurants and shopping (our favorited restaurant was just 800 feet away!), as well as being very close to the beach!

The house has been so thoughtfully equipped with extras to help make your stay easier, from spices and oils for cooking to beach towels and toys to family games and movies.

The planning and reservation process as well as check-in was flawless and Lisa was very flexible and knowledgeable about how to make our visit the best it could be.

We will visit again and highly recommend this property!

Wonderful Experience

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Beautifully appointed, excellent location, and very relaxing environment. Lisa was most helpful in the reservation process and responded promptly to any inquiries we had. We were delighted with our experience and hope to return again. Would definitely recommend.

We loved this house with the windows and sunny feel. It was so relaxing! We love the location close to downtown and for walking on the boardwalk to the beach. We've been coming to Grand Haven for over 30 years and this is one of the best places we've stay in. It is well stocked with everything you need and more. And great to work with Lisa. Thanks for everything! We'll be back soon.

Amazing Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for my small family get to gather. We were able to sleep 6 comfortably. We had a wonderful time with our little reunion. It is beautifully laid out with a open kitchen-livingroom upstairs and a rec room downstairs. The location couldn't be any better. Just a few blocks from the downtown and the river walk out to Lake Michigan is beautiful. The property sits high enough for a great view of the Musical Fountain. But best of all was the reception we received when checking in. We highly recommend the cottage to anyone.

"Best Cottage" is an Understatement! Superb!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Grand Haven. . . could not have been a better experience. The cottage is fantastic. . . comfortable, nicely furnished, fully stocked, CLEAN. . . ample room for us and our 5 kids to stretch out. . . it was a home away from home. Lisa the property manager was great! She greeted us at the property upon arrival, showed us around the cottage and provided us with restaurant and entertainment suggestions! The gas grill ran out of gas and she came right over and exchanged the tank for us. Lisa is a keeper!

The cottage is walking distance to the beach, downtown, and you can see and hear the musical fountain from the deck. I could go on and on. . . this is THE PLACE to stay in Grand Haven!!

Very impressed! Excellent stay highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 1 year old boy stayed at this property for almost a week and were impressed from the moment we walked in. Everything was very clean, well kept, and nicely decorated. The rental was stocked with everything you need from kitchen items, bath, and even beach stuff which was really great as we did not bring any! The location could not have been better. Just a few blocks walk to the river or to downtown. The patio was great to sit out and relax during the day or catch the water fountain show at night. The owner was also very nice and great to rent from. We will definitely come back here again and I would recommend this place to anyone interested in the Grabd Haven area!
