Relaxing, quiet cottage for beach getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had such a wonderful time at this cottage. We were only there for 4 days but it was exactly what we were looking for. The house is very nice, was clean when we arrived, had everything we needed. It was as pictured. It is a very short walk to the beach. The beach area near the property is very nice. We walked on the nearby trails and walking paths and went to the park. It is close enough to shopping and stores and restaurants but when you are by the cottage you feel so pleasantly away from everything. It has a very "beach life" feel to the area, which to us was perfect. The owner was quick to respond to my inquiry and additional questions and was very nice. She provided all the information that we needed in a friendly and timely manner. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Cabin and Location

  • 4 of 5
This is a great little cabin for a getaway. We walked the beach and out to the lighthouse and along the breakwater what a great time. I hope they can add a ironing board and iron for us out of state people. We will definitely stay there again. Thanks,
Dan :)

Cute, comfortable cottage very near beach

  • 4 of 5
This little cottage is adorable and feels very homey. We are a family of four (parents and 2 kids), and the size of the cottage was plenty for us. We were just there two days visiting with friends who were vacationing at a different site in Muskegon so didn't spend much time outside or at Pere Marquette Beach. However, the small deck off of the back offered privacy and would have been nice for dinner or drinks on the deck, even though neighboring houses are very close. The cottage is well-stocked with anything you might need. The bedding was soft and comfortable (cute quilts on the bunk bed!) and felt homey. Felt like we were staying at a friend's place instead of a rental. Beach looked beautiful with white sands and expansive space to spread out for a day at the beach. Also, owner was very responsive when I emailed/called with questions. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Easy Breezy Comfy Cozy

  • 5 of 5
This quaint vintage cottage is just want you want out of a simple, relaxed beach vacation. Our family of 4 (me, husband, 3 yr old and mother-in-law) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Savannah Sands during the week of July 4th.

The cottage is CLEAN, and well equipped - wifi, linens, beach towels, cookware, utensils, gas grill - all you need to do is show up. While there is no washer/dryer, we did go to a laundromat mid week. I did suggest to the owner she should have a drying rack or a clothes line in case you wanted to wash a few things in the sink and just line dry.

There is a TV, but we never even turned it on. When it rained, we could have easily and comfortably hunkered down with a good book or some board games, but instead we chose to take a day trip to Grand Rapids to the Children's Museum.

The owner, Tara, was super helpful and helped with restaurant recco's - and we even explored a few on our own. There is a farmer's market in town (approx 4 miles) where we picked up our produce for the week.

However, the best part is definitely the LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. I've rented many beach cottages for my family over the years, but never one this close. You walk out the door, down the sidewalk, and across the street. We didn't have to load up a car, a stroller, a wagon....to drive blocks, or hike down an hill, or walk down 100 rickety stairs....it was that easy.

And because it was so homey and easy, we will for be back next year for sure!
