This private beach association, on extensive wooded property, offers the use of tennis courts, playground, and an inlet boating lake is only a short walk away. Numerous bike trails and two State Parks are very close. The fun towns of Holland and Grand Haven are minutes away, with great shopping and restaurants! The cottage includes a dishwasher, laundry, grill, cable TVs, and DSL. June through August rates range from $2200 to $4000 per week. Executive rental, Fall/off-season week/weekends also available at a lower rate. No pets or smokers please.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Very Special Place. Being an East coast guy, I am totally amazed at the beauty and charm this spot displays. It reminds us of the Cape, Nantucket and Maine all in one. The house is first class. The air conditioning was a huge plus with warm temps and the smore forks were perfect for the evening beach fireside dinners. Papa, if watching from above, would have enjoyed the great fun we all had here

Family Vacation

We loved this home. It was comfy, and great space.

Would absolutely go again!

Glad to have the golf cart! It helps to get to the beach for those who don't walk much!

The beach and sunset were outstanding! LOVE IT

Fantastic Time

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time at this rental property. There were 8 adults and 4 children in our group. We used it as an opportunity to gather with some extended family that we haven't seen in a while and we all had a blast. My grandmother especially enjoyed just being able to relax and spend time with her great-grandchildren. It was a beautiful location and the home itself offered everything that we needed. The owners thought of everything! There was nothing that we were in need of and we cooked large meals for every breakfast and dinner. There were plenty of beds to accommodate our whole group and we had plenty of towels. The house was large enough that we didn't feel like we were bumping into each other all the time. The golf-cart was a huge asset and what drew us to this house because my 80 year old grandmother was able to join us and my mother just had knee surgery. We were able to cart them around and they could join us at the beach because of the golf cart. The deck outside overlooked the woods and it was a pleasant place to have coffee in the morning and relax. I definitely liked the tv/playroom for the kids. My kids loved the beach toys that were provided and the fact that we had plenty of beach towels was a huge plus! The pictures do not do the house justice. We thought the place looked nice from the pictures but were blown away when we actually got there and saw that it was even nicer. We would definitely stay again and recommend this property to others.

We had 9 adults and 5 children under the age of six,the house was more than accomadating, we all had a wonderful time. We would definitely come back to this beautiful house in the woods, the location is great plenty of sight seeing, restaurants, shopping ! Relaxing on the beach was the best for all of us.

Master's Celebration

Master's Celebration
  • 4 of 5
Family and friends gathered at Papa's to share in the celebration of our sons master degree from Grand Valley State University. We had an amazing weekend. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets, and walks, as well as time spent with family and friends. That is exactly what we had hoped for.

If you are entertaining a larger group, parking is difficult. We did use the golf cart to transport guests up and down the hill. Trying to prepare for a large dinner, complete with appetizers and dessert, was trying. I found the kitchen supplies to be less than adequate, but fortunately we packed two SUVs filled with amenities from home. We planned to use the grill, but found the propane tank empty, luckily we checked on that the day we arrived. 8 people stayed at the home, and there really was not enough bath towels and wash cloths. Just pack a few of your own, that will help.

Those issues aside, we truly did enjoy the home and loved the location. Papa's was the perfect place to host our celebration, and those that attended gave it a thumbs up!
