Overview

Muskegon House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bathroom, 1 Half Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Bill & Stella's By The Shore-This roomy, ramp accessible, single level, air conditioned home is ideally located for short, level walks to the area’s features. The home has a large, comfortable living room and kitchen, 2 bathrooms (1 with tub/shower) and 3 bedrooms that sleep 6. An outside gas grill is provided. A large, grassy, tree-filled park is located immediately across the street, complete with charcoal grills, picnic tables and playground equipment. The Muskegon Channel runs alongside this park, connecting Lake Michigan to Muskegon Lake. The Muskegon State Park runs the length of the channel on the opposite side, furnishing beautiful views of its pine trees and dunes. A walkway runs continuously alongside the channel for ½ mile – great for leisurely walks or bike rides. The Great Lakes Naval Memorial/Museum and USS Silversides submarine are located along this walkway, with tours available. Lake Michigan’s clean, white sand beaches are as nearby as a short 300 yard walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Entry in Guest Book: "I've been living abroad for the past 9 years and I have stayed in many holiday homes all over the world. This was by far the most comfortable, clean & well-stocked that we have ever stayed in! Thanks so much for your hospitality - we will be back! It really has felt like a home for 2 weeks."

Beautiful autumn visit

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful location and well appointed vacation home was just perfect for 5 adults, willing to share one full bath and a half bath. Everything was provided for by the owners, right down to iron & ironing board; hair dryer and even washer and dryer (if we'd needed those). Large table within the kitchen was especially nice.
We lucked out on the weather, having to be there for a local wedding and finding the beaches all but abandoned for our morning walks. Truly a lovely time of year to stay in this quiet neighborhood spot.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay. Not only is it close to the beach, park, and channel, it is clean and well-stocked. The yard is beautiful and has a grill and a fire pit. We loved being here!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Bill & Stella's by the shore was a great place to stay. Our family including three children really had a great time. The house is very clean and comfortable. It is a very short walk to the beach, we really enjoyed walking to see the sunsets and see the boats that come in for the night. The house is short walk to the submarine and naval museum. The owners have a great supply of towels, toys, beach umbrella, and bags to use at the beach so you don't have to pack everything. I really appreciated having a washer and dryer. We also enjoyed the fire pit to roast marshmallows. Our family had a great time, the kids love visiting Michigan and we all hope to go back soon.

What a great week!!

  • 5 of 5
We were so lucky to find a rental for the week in July that we were looking for and we were extra lucky that it was Gary and Cathy's house. I grew up in Muskegon and Pere Marquette beach is one of my favorite places. We walked to the beach everyday! The house was stocked with everything you could think of from all the dishes you would need to sticks in the garage to roast marshmallows over the fire pit. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to stay on Lake Michigan. Gary and Cathy were very gracious and even put out fresh flowers and cookies from the famous Ryke's bakery. We loved our stay here!!

BEST ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Cathy and Gary's house and we honestly feel it is the best rental on the beach. It is stocked with everything from beach towels & toys to all of the amenities you have at home..especially in the kitchen. The beds are very very comfortable, which you don't always find in rentals. The air conditioning is also a plus. The house is clean as a whistle and Cathy and Gary could not be nicer. We love the cookies from Rykes waiting for us during each visit. The house is a short walk to the beach, perfect for sunset watching and walking on the pere. Our 6 year old grandson has enjoyed both visits to the house and never wants to leave, it's so cozy that it's like being at home. My husband and I grew up in Muskegon and feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful place to vacation on the beach. Thanks Cathy and Gary for your awesome home, see you soon!

Awesome!! The owners are incredible!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was an awesome experience! Thanks to the owners for making it truly a home away from home!! We were able to celebrate Dad's 84th birthday in style! It was awesome having family all under 1 roof! It is well maintained and excellent customer service! While visiting we saw many sunsets; grilled out and had campfires; saw a ball game at Comstock Park; visited Saugutuck, Holland State Park and Dunes; rode bikes from Hart - Montigue, Muskegon - Grand Rapids on the Musketawa Trail, and around Spring Lake; toured Silverside; and rode the Trolley! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!!
