Grand Haven House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

DURING JULY & AUGUST, WE ONLY RENT BY THE WEEK (Fri-Fri). NO EXCEPTIONS!

My kids call it Grand HEAVEN for a reason...

We are 2 miles from the beach and 1/2 mile from downtown shops, restaurants and the boardwalk.

Named on Yahoo as 'One of the best secret beaches on Earth!!'

Here is an excerpt from the Yahoo! article:

'Trolley cars, a 2.5-mile harbor-front boardwalk, and two 19th-century red lighthouses give a sweet, old-time feel to this Lake Michigan town. Boaters and fishermen flock here, and hikers like the short-but-strenuous climb to Rosy Mound that includes 1,000 feet of stairs up and down the sand dunes to the shore of Lake Michigan. There are warm shallows for swimming, and the soft sand of two public beaches squeaks when you walk on it. After sunset, the local restaurants, ice cream parlors, and shops come alive.' Yahoo! News Article May 2, 2012

Adorable, clean, comfortable home away from home. We are located on the desirable WEST side of the city. Just pack your clothes and get some groceries. We have the rest covered. :) Walk or bike to downtown Grand Haven. We are in walking distance to charming downtown, Harbor Island and the boardwalk. We are close to shops, restaurants, parks, and the beach. Our house is located in the charming Old Towne neighborhood. The houses are all close to a century old. It is a safe, quiet area. Come stay at our elderly, cute, quiet, relaxing getaway. You won't want to leave.

Enjoy bike rides to the beach or walks downtown to the shops or to the boardwalk to enjoy the Musical Fountain. Enjoy Lucy's Deli for Lunch, grab some ice cream at the Dairy Treat while watching the boats go in and out of the channel. Walk to the Farmer's Market, Harbor Island, or to Snug Harbor for Dinner. Charter a fishing boat for the day, Rent bikes, walk to Chinook Pier, or just simply relax on the beach.

There are two cozy bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a queen bed. It is perfect for a romantic escape. The 2nd bedroom is perfect for the kids. It has a set of bunks and an optional twin bed.

We have Wi-Fi, Cable and a DVD player. We have a flat-screen TV in the living room and a small flat-screen in the Master Bedroom.

On rainy days enjoy a day at the Spring Lake Aquatic Center. There are kiddie pools with waterslides, splash pads and tons of indoor water fun. There are also work out facilities, and swimming for adults.

There is so much to do in Grand Haven and nearby. However, when you need a place to come at the end of the day, this is the perfect getaway. Quaint, clean, comfortable and convenient.

Our house is perfect for Romantic getaways, Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, Father/Son & Mother/Daughter trips, Family time, or even Complete Alone, Re-charge Time (my favorite :)

During the Summer (July and August) WE ONLY DO WEEKLY RENTALS (FRI-FRI). June and September are available for nightly rentals (3 night minimum).

About Lori Griep

We are a young family that lives in West MI. I grew up camping in Grand Haven and wanted my kids to have the wonderful Summer memories Grand Haven has to offer.

We have a son at GVSU, 2 boys that play travel hockey and an amazing daughter that is working 2 jobs and will be a senior in high school. BUSY! So, Grand Haven is the perfect escape for us all. :)

Lori Griep purchased this house in 2010

Why Lori Griep chose Grand Haven

We bought our vacation home in Grand Haven as our future Summer or retirement home. We would like a place to escape to when the kids are all grown and out of the house. The location is perfect for us and is close to our family. I have always wanted to own an old house in Grand Haven. We love our piece of history.

What makes this house unique

We love the location. We walk or bike into town for ice cream or dinner. We love to watch the boats go in and out of the channel. We also like to walk the pier and the park at the YMCA. We usually drive to the beach b/c we have too much packed to walk or bike. However, in the morning I like to walk to the beach while everyone else is still sleeping to walk the pier. We LOVE our little house and can't wait to share it with you...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your charming cottage. It was perfect for our family-adorable as well. We enjoyed discovering Grand Haven, Holland, Silver Lake, and Muskegon during our stay. We all agreed as a family that Grand Haven was the best all inclusive beach town.

This was our first trip to MI and your acommodations made us feel at home from day one. I can see why you all love it here!

Perfect family vacation!

I spent a week here with my husband and toddler, and it was absolutely perfect. We appreciated the Wifi and cable for after our daughter was in bed, plus there was a nice stash of games and books if you want to go screen free. Very comfortable beds, a LOVELY shower with lots of water pressure, a well-equipped and organized kitchen, and laundry access in the house made our stay so easy. The owner very kindly left a packet of brochures for local attractions plus a list of her family's own favorites, many of which we visited and enjoyed. We will definitely be back!

Adorable, peaceful stay. The location was perfect! We were close enough to the beach and to the downtown hot spots. The neighborhood is quiet and relaxed. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you for a wonderful "beach week."
