Imagine 110 feet of private sandy waterfront! Enjoy this lovely, spacious 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage with your own private beach area. Four kayaks, hammocks, firepit, large deck with majestic views, gas grill, ping pong, basketball, fireplace, jetted (Jacuzzi) bathtub, central air conditioning and large, professionally manicured lawn all await your arrival. And it can be yours for a week for only $2400.*
'The Waterfront Cottage' is large enough to comfortably accomodate ten people. Yet it is cozy enough to provide a wonderful, romantic venue for just the two of you. This cottage is located on picturesque Pottawattomie Bayou Lake in Grand Haven, Michigan. Pottawattomie Lake is warmer and calmer than Lake Michigan. You can splash and play in it, explore it with the kayaks or sit on the dock and fish for blue gills, bass and perch. Or you can lounge in the hammocks and catch some warm rays of summer sunshine.
There are 3 very nice bedrooms in this cottage. The spacious Master Bedroom has a king bed and walk-in closet. Bedroom #2 also has a king bed. Both of these bedrooms have picture windows that overlook the awesome lake. Bedroom #3 has a queen bed.
There are also two twin pull-out sleepers, one roll-away and one double pull-out sleeper.
There are 2 full bathrooms. One of them has double sinks and a large jetted (Jacuzzi) bathtub. We supply the bedding and bath towels, but we ask that you bring your own beach towels.
The spacious, bright living room measures 23 feet by 17 feet! It has a cathedral ceiling with ceiling fan, a 32 inch TV with basic cable and a VCR/DVD player. It also has large picture windows that highlight terrific views of the water. You might see a gaggle of geese, a few graceful swans, a blue heron, a red tailed hawk, turkeys or a king fisher. Several of our guests have seen deer in the yard. On rare occasions soaring eagles have been spotted over the lake.
The dining area is large and cheerful. It is furnished with comfortable seating for 6 at the table and 4 more at the snack bar. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size refrigerator & stove, microwave, griddle, waffle maker, fondue pot, coffee maker, toaster and all of the pots and pans and dishes anyone would need, complete with a dishwasher.
The view is amazing from both inside and outside this cottage. You can see the sunlight glisten off the water as you lounge at the beach area, relax on the deck or even view it from inside the living room. In the evenings you can curl up in front of the gas log fireplace in the living room, or sit outside around the firepit and be mesmerized by the flickering flames as you roast hotdogs and marshmallows and make hobo pies and S'mores. We provide the firewood and 'Tonka Toasters'.
The yard is a great place to play outdoor games. It is almost an acre large, nicely landscaped and professionally manicured. There are horseshoe and washer-pitching pits built into the yard for friendly competitions. You might want to fish, shoot some basketballs, play ping pong, kayak or just relax in the hammocks. If you have a small boat you can bring it along. There is direct water access from the cottage to Lake Michigan via the Grand River.
'The Waterfront Cottage' has the comfort of central air conditioning and the convenience of a full-size washer and dryer. All 1600 square feet of the cottage are on one level.(There are 4 steps outside to get to the cottage from the driveway, and there is a flight of steps from the deck to the backyard.) We have stocked the cottage with a plethora of board games, puzzles, books and movies for your enjoyment.
The interior is smoke-free, but smoking is permitted outdoors. And although we love animals, we can not allow pets.
Grand Haven is a wonderful place in which to vacation. CNN recently named Lake Michigan beaches the BEST IN THE NATION! Travel & Leisure Magazine called Grand Haven's beach one of the 'Best Secret Beaches on Earth'. And voters in a Pure Michigan competition choose 'watching a beautiful sunset in Grand Haven' as the number 1 activity in the state.
The Grand Haven area has lovely beaches, great golf courses and miles of bike paths. There are also several unique parks to explore and enjoy. Beautiful Pottawattomie Park is just 1 1/2 miles from the cottage. It has a great playground for the kids, a swimming area and a fishing/observation deck that extends out over the water. Lake Michigan and its sugar sand beach is a quick and easy 5 miles from the cottage, as is quaint downtown Grand Haven. You can stroll on the boardwalk there, watch a sunset from the pier and enjoy the dancing waters of Grand Haven's Famous Musical Fountain. Grand Haven has some exceptional restaurants too. You will find little eating houses featuring homecooked breakfasts, the Pronto Pup kiosk (a Grand Haven tradition), Fricano's Pizzaria (another Grand Haven tradition), a variety of ice creams parlors, and both trendy and elegant fine dining establishments.
Several of our guests have described The Waterfront Cottage as a 'Waterfront Paradise'. It is an ideal place to come home to after a busy day downtown. Or just relax here all week. This cottage is immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable, and fully furnished and equipped.

The Waterfront Cottage is much more than a cottage. In fact it was our primary residence until we built a new home in 2003. Because we love this lake and the area, we built our new home on Pottawattomie Bayou Lake too. We live nearby which is helpful in case you have any questions during your vacation.
