Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 8 Sleeps
About Heather Vanderploeg
Hello, Nice to meet you. I purchased this property because I love Grand Haven! It's a great family town with lots of things to do, with the beach being best part! My husband and I were very lucky and got the chance to move here two years ago and I can't say enough good thing about the town. Being retired from the travel industry I have traveled many places and there's no place like Grand Haven!
Heather Vanderploeg purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Heather Vanderploeg chose Grand Haven
This property has the Cottage appeal with a large fenced in back yard. The fire pit is great for summer night campfires and roasting s'mores. The dinning room table also seats 8 comfortably. We have provided a crib and highchair for families with a baby. The bedding is all 100% cottage and is all washed in the sanitized cycle after each guest. I also provide Paper plates and cups for guests that do not want to do dishes.
What makes this Cottage unique

Beautiful home, cute, and cozy stay, close to downtown
We had a lovely stay here this summer with our family of 5. The outdoor space is functional and the kitchen is well equipped. The space is well thought out with children in mind--several kids toys and books available and even a sprinkler for the backyard. The stairs have built in gates which is nice if you are traveling with little curious ones. The upstairs rooms do get hot, but there is an air conditioner and a box fan which worked well for us at night. Though I would recommend bringing one more box fan if you are able to. Downtown is about a 10 minute walk, and to the State Park is about 40 minutes. The jacuzzi bath tub is an added bonus and nice to soak in after a long day at the beach or hike! The property manager was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again and already miss our home away from home.
Grand Haven House
This property is amazing and very clean. The best part is the backyard. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk to downtown. The neighborhood is awesome. The owner is very nice. I’d recommend this place to anyone.
Lovely Home and Yard
Bright and cheerful yet quiet family place; conveniently located within walking distance of downtown attractions, shops, and restaurants.
Only criticism was there were mothballs in a closet that were overpowering. When asked she responded immediately, told us where they were and to put them in the shed. After the room aired out it didn’t seem like they were needed.
Very responsive owner, lovely to talk to, nice neighbors, and cute little house.
We were very impressed with Madison House! It was fully furnished with more than we ever imagined!
We enjoyed staying in the house with our family. Everything was provided right down to beach towels, cups, plates, toys for the children. The backyard was great for fires and s’mores. We were 10minutes from downtown and the beach. Washer and dryer was a plus for wet towels and suits. Beautiful location, would go there again!!
Our family of four had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable vacation.
Heather was a wonderful host. All of the linenens and kitchen utensils were supplied and organized and neat and clean. We took our bikes and ride all over town and to the beach. We hardly needed a car. Will definitely stay at the Madison Cottage when we come back to GH MI:)
