DOWNTOWN LOCATION WITH LUSH GREENSPACE FOR FAMILY FUN!

Grand Haven Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

The Franklin House is a historic Grand Haven home located only one block from the waterfront where the famous Grand Haven Musical Fountain can be viewed. Downtown stores, restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and museums are within one to three blocks, yet our property features a large, quiet yard with plenty of private, off-street parking.

These completely remodeled, two-bedroom condominiums include fully-equipped kitchens, comfortable living rooms, fireplaces, air conditioning, in-unit laundry, ten-foot ceilings, and their own private deck or porch, with gas grill and seating. Each unit can comfortably sleep four adults and has all the amenities of home.

There are three condos from which to choose: The front condo is set up like a townhouse. It has the kitchen, dining area, 1/2 bath and living room on the main floor and two bedrooms, 2 baths and laundry upstairs. This condo rents for $100 more per week than the other two due to its extra bathrooms.

The lower, back condo has 2 bedrooms and one bath and is all on one level. It has a large deck that overlooks the back yard and a side, covered porch.

The upper, back condo also has 2 bedrooms and one bath, is all on the same level, but has a flight of stairs to access it. Its spacious, private deck overlooks the backyard.

While the Franklin House can be a great place for reunions it is designed so that each unit feels extremely private. Condominiums are accessed on separate sides of the home. Our facility and location cannot be matched.

Pets and smokers cannot be accommodated.

My name is Tina and I own and operate the Franklin House, with the help of my family. My husband, Paul, daughter Isabel who is 18 and 16 year old son Max help me clean, do lawn work, paint...and the list goes on! This is a family-run business in which we take great pride.

I grew up locally and always knew that I wanted to return after college to raise a family in this safe, friendly town that is rich with natural beauty. I adore introducing people to Grand Haven, which I hold so dear, and doing my best to insure that they have a lovely vacation at the Franklin House.

Tina Elve purchased this condo in 2002

The Franklin House was built 100 years ago for a prestigious family in town. Years later it was made into a rooming house called the 'Rock Garden Inn.' It fell into disrepair and was completely dilapidated when we purchased it. Paul and I fell in love with this eyesore because we saw its potential! We designed the 3 condos and renovated it, doing much of the work ourselves. It has proven to be a wonderful business to run!

Great location! Cute place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the upper back condo and loved it! This was a great place for a girls weekend! Great deck to sit out back and have some cocktails and spacious kitchen and living area. Very close to the heart of downtown and the beach. Owners were very welcoming and accommodating (even when we were slow to get out on Sunday - sorry, we had too much fun on Saturday! =))

Best Rental in Grand Haven

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Franklin House for the last five summers, averaging 2 weeks per stay. We usually rent the front condo, but have rented the front and back (both down) as well. The Franklin House is ideally located in Grand Haven, just a block off the main business street- Washington - and features stylish furniture and furnishings. Each visit, the house is immaculate, and filled with everything one needs during a vacation, from a fully-equipped kitchen to laundry soap. The downtown location means restaurants, the musical fountain, and shops are just a few steps away, yet the home is very private; the beach is about 3/4 of a mile - an easy walk. The The owners are fantastic to work with!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Franklin Condo for 2 nights and had such a great time. Tina and Paul ( the owners) are wonderful people and made our visit complete. The Condo contained everything you could possibly want - they have thought of everything!! It is in a very convenient location. Close to the shops, Pier, restaurants, and all of the ice cream stands!!! Took a day and went over to Saugatuck which is about 30 minutes away from the Condo. Thanks so much for allowing us the pleasure of renting your Condo....we hope to return again next year!! Dave and Cathy~~~~

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented the lower back condo in The Franklin House. From the minute we started corresponding with the owner things went very smoothly and questions were answered quickly. Everything was arranged via email or snail mail and when we arrived all was in good order in the condo with our special requests met. The owners are very accomodating and are on the spot if ever a need arises. We have already booked again for the same time next year. This place is within walking distance of everything but Meijer. We parked our car and walked almost everywhere. We go after Labor Day and it is wonderful!
