About The Owner

Ryan and I purchased Bayou Beginnings in the fall of 2011. We were married in the home in December 2011 in front of the main floor fireplace! We live in Grand Haven with our son, Brock, and our 3 Labs.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Spring Lake

We love to go boating! While we currently live in Grand Haven we have always wanted a lake house with a dock. We plan to move into Bayou Beginnings in 2017.

What makes this house unique

This home is prime SL property...on a hill, facing west and no bridges blocking traffic into the bayou.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic weekend! The house was spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed the kayaks, the firepit, the large patio and the stair-top seating at various times, and we were thrilled to be able to have our boat there. We took it out several times for water-skiing, tubing, floating in bayous, and sight-seeing, including into Grand Haven where we were treated to a beautiful sunset. The bike path nearby made a great place to run. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and Melissa was very responsive to the couple of questions we had.

The most amazing stay ever in Grand Haven!

  • 5 of 5
I can say that I had the most amazing time at Ryan's place over the weekend. They were very nice and responded right away for my inquiry. They even scheduled cleaning guy to finish cleaning early enough to check in to the house before 4. They had rooms over 15people and they were really nice. Even the view from the room was amazing. They provided us with firepit, towel, TP, parking garage, Ice box and everything that we needed for cooking. One thing that I want to point out is that they let you use their Kayak as long as you wear safety jacket on! I never gone Kayaking before and it was one of the most memorable time I had at the place. I really want to thank you, Mellisa and Ryan for letting us use their house and being so cooperative about staying over the weekend. Thanks again for everything, Mellisa and Ryan!! Maybe I will bring my whole family here!

fantastic house

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a group of 10 friends & we all had the most amazing time. The house is great. Better than what I expected. The kitchen area is so spacious and there are several bedrooms, some with a wrap around deck/balcony that has stairs going to the back yard. The back yard is spacious and the two patios make it easier to spend every second of your time outside. There are a few stairs down to the lake, but there are 1-2 separate landings for you to take a break if you get tired. They really aren't bad.

The owners were very communicative and everything contract wise was disclosed very clearly. For the size of the house and the fact that it's on the water, the price was very fair. When we arrived, everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. Anything you need to bring is mentioned in the documents sent to you by the owners.

We were all extremely happy with our stay and assuming I can get a similarly sized group together next year, we would love to book the place again.

This is a spacious, well-furnished house with great views of Spring Lake and a fantastic and very helpful owner. It's centrally located and just a short drive to Grand Haven and Muskegon, so there's lots to do if you are looking for something other than relaxing in a peaceful setting with a gorgeous view.

A memory that will last a LIFETIME!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the pleasure of not only staying at Bayou beginnings for the weekend, but we got married right in the back yard! The house was immaculate. Set back in a beautiful wooded lot, right on Spring lake, what more could you ask for? With 5 bed rooms and 3 full baths there was more than enough room for my family and extended family to stay comfortably. At night we had a great time sitting around the fire pit enjoying s'mores. During the days we pleasured ourselves with Swimming in the lake, Kayaking or just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. We will definitely be returning to Bayou Beginings and THANK YOU Ryan and Melissa for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us.

Fantastic House and Wonderful Owners To Work With!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an amazing time at this house. We had a total of 6 adults and 5 kids and had plenty of room at the house. Not only is the house spacious, but it's very clean, includes a great layout, and is located on the lake with a beautiful view. What impressed us the most were the owners and how friendly they were. They were very responsive to each email and phone call and made sure that our stay was pleasant. The house is more than equipped with all the supplies you need including kitchen utensils, serving ware, pots/pans, and even spices! There were plenty of extra blankets, enough fans to keep everyone happy, a fully stocked bin of beach towels, board games, laundry supplies, high chair, child proof gates, and so much more. Our favorite memories were grilling and eating together at the big table, roasting marshmallows every night by the fire pit, kayaking, and watching the kids run and jump off the dock. We had some very special bonding moments in this house and will cherish those memories for a long time. Spring Lake is so pretty and a great place to unplug from the world and spend quality time with your family. I highly recommend renting from Ryan and Melissa, they were absolutely fantastic and their house was just perfect.
