THIS is where you want to stay! We had a WONDERFUL time. I really did my research on available rentals in Grand Haven, and was patting myself on the back a bit for finding this "gem". Location cannot be beat - RIGHT across the street from the beach. And you can enjoy the view of lake Michigan from the deck! My husband and I noticed while driving around that many other places don't have views of the water, and some places in town looked nice but...you're just looking at the channel and not the lake! The hotels in town did not look that great at all. This is THE best location, hands down. You are a short walk or drive into town to where the restaurants and shops are.
The cottage is adorable! The pics do not do it justice. It was very clean, and it's decorated so cute and beachy. The bathroom is really big with two separate sinks which is nice and separate shower/commode area. Living room and sun room are perfect with a great view of the lake. Bedrooms are simply adorable and lots of room - I even noticed how there are so many hooks in the bathroom and bedrooms to hang things...so convenient when you are travelling.
My girls were crying when we left and even for a few days afterwards, saying they want to go back and stay in that "exact same place". I only wish we could have stayed longer! If you are looking at rentals in Grand Haven, well...you can stop looking! This is where you want to stay. And with the option of the lower level if you had a big group, this cottage is perfect to accommodate any size group.
Thanks for letting us have your cottage to make some great family memories, Dawn! It was such a special time :-)
