Pine Lodge is in Highland Park a 100+ year old resort area in the city of Grand Haven. We are about 150 yards from the City beach which is adjacent to the State Park. It was our year around home for 26 years until me moved to a conventional home 1/2 mile 'in town' June 1, 2002. It has 3 parking spaces adjacent to it and sits on a small dune, so it's about a normal flight of stairs to get in (not handicap accessible).
The first floor has a half bath with laundry, a fully equipped kitchen with quarry tile floor and an eating nook that can accommodate 10 (if you squeeze). There is a large living room with hardwood floors and the screened porch off it has a narrow view of the lake. The second floor has a full bathroom plus with custom shower, separate claw foot tub, toilet and vanity. The master bedroom has a queen bed and large closet, the 2nd bedroom has a double bed with a trundle twin under it and the 3rd two twins trundle. The 2nd floor rooms are carpeted and the walls and ceilings are ¾” tongue and grove Brazilian hardwood. The third floor is rustic, but clean with pine floors and shiplap wooden walls. Two bedrooms with dormers that look out to the lake. One has a double bed, the other 2 twins trundle. The 3rd bedroom has a twin bed. We keep a TV with VCR and basic cable. The cottage is not air conditioned, but lake breezes and fans keep it comfortable.
We are about a mile walk to downtown and there are hiking trails nearby. Grand Haven has many nice restaurants a nice shopping district downtown, a wonderful boardwalk along the channel and a great playground. Charter fishing boats dock downtown. A 9 screen movie theater is just south of town. Michigan's largest amusement park is 25 miles north and one of USA's 75 best public golf courses just 5 miles south of town. Of course, Grand Haven hosts the world's largest musical fountain that gives nightly performances. If there are any other questions I can answer, feel free to ask.

We are a pharmacist/executive and a retired preschool teacher. We raised 6 children in this home before we converted it to a rental. 19 of our 21 grandchildren live in Grand Haven and love to visit the cottage.
This was our year around home for almost 30 years until we move to our 'favorite' 'normal' house 3/4 of a mile inland. We moved here when our oldest child was in kindergarden because we thought this would be a great place to raise a family. It was.
