About Rose and Gregg Dykstra

We moved to this beautiful lakeside community known as Beachwood-Bluffton and fell in love with all of the water views and opportunities for family visits with so much to do with children and grandchildren and friends. Visitors have commented that they were unaware that this beach area existed, and ...it is one of the best beaches they've ever seen...anywhere.

Pere Marquette has been rated as one of the top beaches in the United States.

Rose and Gregg Dykstra purchased this house in 2014

Why Rose and Gregg Dykstra chose Muskegon

This property was so clean and well-maintained by the previous owners, that we knew it would be something we would appreciate staying in as a cottage/retreat. It is so close to the playground, boardwalks, lighthouses, beaches and the submarine, that you do not need a car. The restaurant Docker's Fish House has had rave reviews by boaters and beach-goers and is a favorite of ours to walk to. A new restaurant has opened on the beach (Called 'The Deck') and will be the perfect place to watch the gorgeous West Michigan sunsets.

The history in the area is well-worth exploring as you learn that Muskegon was once a dominant city in the nation with the lumber baron era. The historical section of downtown Muskegon is loaded with history and beautiful architecture.

The screened porch is so relaxing and will provide many hours of family and quiet time for your vacation.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful setting year-round for a get-away. Such a unique front porch and incredible access to Trails, fishing from the piers, serene beach walks.Very comfortable and cozy, the perfect setting for a winter retreat and great family memories.

Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely pleased with our stay. The home was just as described in the brochure. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. Many sweet family memories were created during our visit. We played on the shore of Lake Michigan daily and enjoyed many walks to the lighthouse and pier. The children enjoyed the park just across the street. We drove to the "Michigan Adventure" park and spent time at the water park as well as on the roller coasters and rides. We went to the sand dunes and rode the dune buggies. So much to do and see! Back at the house there was plenty of room to spread out and do crafts, relax in the quiet neighborhood, sit on the back patio, or go for a walk. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun family vacation home! The Wagner's of Las Vegas, Nevada and Rochester, Michigan

Wonderful family getaway! Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was hoping for a laid back and enjoyable place to relax, and the cottage did not disappoint!! We stayed with our three kids (3months, 2 years, 12 years). The house has a nice open concept that accommodated us very well. The kitchen is very well stocked and met all our needs for cooking at home often. We enjoyed daily walks to the playground across the street, the beach, and the two lighthouses. Amazing sunsets!! The driveway is quite large and we enjoyed sitting out there as well while the kids played. We visited the USS Silversides submarine museum and that was enjoyable. It's within walking distance. Dockers restaurant is also within walking distance, they have terrific food and a friendly staff! There is plenty of shopping within a 10-15 minute drive that met all our needs.
Michigan's Adventure is a short 30 minute drive away and that was a blast!
The owners were very kind and went the extra mile to make our stay a great one. We were sad to leave and hope to visit again!

So close to the beach, playgrounds, perfect for vacation with kids. The house was very clean and nice furnished. The only thing we didn't like so much was the 3. Bedroom and 2. Bathroom are in the partially finished basement. The ceiling was low and the sink solution interesting (hope this get's replaced). We had a great vacation.
