Yia Yia's Cottage is a newly renovated 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom Grand Haven cottage. Located on Grand Haven's exclusive Harbor Drive (known locally as 'The Strip'), this Cottage has front-deck views of the Grand Haven Channel/Board Walk and second-floor-deck views of Lake Michigan and the Grand Haven Lighthouse.
Yia Yia's Cottage sits at the base of a dune with walking access to Grand Haven's many attractions: 1/2 mile walk to downtown Grand Haven (The Kirby, Musical Fountain, etc.), 40 yards to the Channel/Board Walk, and 600 yards to Lake Michigan.
The second floor of the Cottage has a wrap-around deck accessible from the spacious master bedroom. The second floor has three bedrooms, the master (with a king size bed) and two others (each with a full size bed). The main floor has a fourth bedroom (with two twin beds and two sets of bunk beds).
The main floor also has an entertaining area (with a flat screen TV) and large, open kitchen. The Cottage has 4 parking spaces.
This was the 2nd year we had a girls getaway weekend at Yia Yia's cottage. This place has great living space. Enough sleeping for the 12 of us to feel comfortable and not crowded.
The location of this cottage is the best. Once we park on Thursday evening we never moved our cars until we left on Sunday. The Board walk is right across the street, which you can take to the left for the beach and pier, or go to the right for a short walk to town. We also walked to the water fountain light show.
We plan on coming back at least one more time. I would love to rent this sometime in the summer for a family gathering.
This house is AMAZING!!!! The location is excellent, close to everything. We did not want to leave!! My whole family agreed that we were ready to move in. The home is extremely spacious & cozy at the same time. Everything you need is there. We got home yesterday, & we're ready to go back NOW! David is wonderful to work with & very pleasant. Wish we could have turned the clocks back a few days, instead of just an hour.
My family and I really enjoyed our time here. What a great place to create memories for my graduation, which acted as a family reunion. David was very helpful through the process and was very flexible with our needs. Wish we could live there! My little niece and nephew loved it. Hoping to make a reservation in the future!!!
Everyone that stayed at the Yia Yia's cottage had a great time. Four girlfriends had three nights of gab sessions and drank coffee on the porch every morning, five sisters spent two nights catching up with their family news, the kids and grandkids spent three days swimming, flying kites, playing games, and walking everywhere.
The weather was great, water was warm (for lake Michigan) and the Mulligans Hollow playground was awesome.
We want to return next Labor Day to do it again.
Loved this place! We needed a place to contain family from the Chicago and Detroit areas for a college graduation (GVSU). Lots of room, great walking area, deer( can you believe!),freighters,tugs and sail boats practically within arm's reach. Grand Haven is a charming walk about town. Everyone is friendly. Don't miss the Morningstar for breakfast and the delightful bookstore next door. We recomend Yia Yia's cottage to anyone who wants/needs a large but comfortable home for a gathering.Full sized gas stove,big fridge.Lotsa deck area. Awesome location.
This was a perfect place for a girls weekend!! The location in Grand Haven was wonderful, could walk to everything. Walked along the Boardwalk and into beautiful Downtown area every night. Didnt even use the car the whole weekend! Beautiful and spacious living area was great for playing games and relaxing!! The owner was super nice and always pleasant to talk with!
Overall had a wonderful visit and would most certainly recommend it!!
Look foward to staying there again next year!!
