STEPS AWAY FROM LAKE MICHIGAN - QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD

Muskegon House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

I knew Bluffton had a charm all its own. It is nestled between the bluffs of Lake Michigan and the shores of Muskegon Lake. During the vaudeville era is was the summer resort area for Buster Keaton and other vaudeville luminaries. Hence, the name ?Actors Colony? originated and is used to this day. There is evidence of street car rails on Thompson Street adjacent to Cherry Street. The homes are all different; to say, older, remodeled and with much character. I purchased this property in 1999 and used it for a monthly rental several years. However, at some point, I realized it could be a great weekly vacation property. I had a desire to improve it and develop its potential. I have had fun decorating and creating an environment where people will enjoy themselves and want to return.

The back yard has a large fire pit and fire wood is provided free of charge. Laundry soap is provided. 2 10-speed bikes are available and one 'old fashion' bike with a basket is available. The home is so warm and cozy. At night you can hear the waves on Lake Michigan. Beautiful neighborhood.

Activities : Many festivals in Muskegon throughout the year. USS Silversides Museum at Pere Marquette beach; swimming in the clean, lovely waters of Lake Michigan; boating of all sorts; golfing at many local courses.

Hello—I’m Linda Wood. I grew up in Muskegon and have worked in the real estate business for over 30-years. Remodeling and managing have been my primary talents. The two Cherry House properties are my only weekly rentals. It has been a great deal of fun for all of us involved in the preparation and maintenance of this unique and marvelous property.

Linda Wood purchased this house in 1999

I had managed this property and knew the area. I realized it would make a perfect vacation property since it is so close to Lake Michigan.

This was a last minute vacation and the home was available. It is a very cute house with lots of room and decorated very nicely. I felt right at home. It was close to the beach at Lake Michigan and we walked there several times. It was easy to get to and a perfect location between White Lake and Grand Haven., We loved the fact that there was a fire pit in the back yard and sat outside and enjoyed the cool weather, a bottle of wine and a great fire. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay...I hope to do it again real soon!
Owner's Response: Thanks for this fabulous review! Join us again next season or before.
Best wishes - Linda

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is clean & has all the basics. Julie is friendly and warm. We would stay here again. (written by daughter)

I "ditto" my daughter who wrote the above comment. We enjoyed staying in this quaint house and the fact that it was CLEAN. Julie is perfect for giving a warm feeling to visitors. Hope to visit again. My husband agrees.

We came in for the better part of summer. We are both from here so returning every year is typical. We had so-so weather but still enjoyed our time with family and friends. The house was perfect for us! Down the street from relatives. We will try to return next year as we really enjoyed this cottage and the great neighbors. The care-takers of the property were very efficient and kind. Linda was great to rent from. Thank you!

GREAT vacation rental! We rented the cozy and quaint Cherry street house for 10 weeks! It was a great place to stay. It felt as if we were at home the entire time due to the amenities. The response by the owner, Linda, and her caretakers was EXCELLENT! They were very responsive to our needs when something arose that needed attention. We were very close to the beach which we walked to on a daily basis for sunbathing, dinners and exercise. The neighbors were extremely nice saying "hi" everyday and asking us how our stay was. It felt very safe, as if the neighbors were looking out for us. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice quaint Muskegon summer rental. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for the memories!!

Cherry Cottage I

  • Submitted: Apr 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
One has to wonder how they will ever look at a sunset the same. Or watch a storm coming off Lake Michigan. Or, ever hear a Van Morrison song the same. Everything is better here at Cherry House.
Everything you need is right here. Everything! The neighbors were kind. The breeze at night was amazing and it's all here in this house.
Would be so easy to stay. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much for your kindness and warmth. And thank you for Cherry House. Warmly,
