Overview

Grand Haven House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 (but we absolutely limit to six)

Large, architect-designed luxury modernist home on the top of a beautiful, secluded wooded dune. Located two miles south of downtown Grand Haven, MI. Private home association Lake Michigan beach access (stairs) are a 5 minute walk away. Architecturally interesting modernist, multi-level house with skylights and multiple decks overlooking the forest. Even a large lighted roof deck high up in the tree tops to lay in the sun during the day or have drinks at night under the stars. Filled entirely with unique hand picked, designer, mid-century and Danish modern furniture , lighting and artwork by antique dealer owners. Its like stepping into an episode of ' Mad Men' ! Our favorite aspect of our home is its absolutely beautiful setting on top of a very high wooded dune. It is amazingly private and peacefull. Since this is a house practically made of glass, you feel part of the outdoors that surround the house. One wall of glass you sit in front of in the kitchen, puts you right at the edge of the steep forest as it receds down the dune. So many places to sit inside and out to watch the deer, turkeys, many bird species and even the elusive red fox and coyotes that cross their forest trails. Truly a unique place of beauty and calm seclusion, surprisingly close to everything Grand Haven has to offer.

Completely equipped kitchen has a SubZero fridge, double-oven, and all small appliances including espresso maker. Steam washer and dryer. Jacuzzi tub in one bathroom.

Lots of outdoor living space. Several decks including a large deck off the great room, deck with grill off kitchen, and amazing roof deck on top of our three story home that puts you in the treetops. Firepit and trampoline. Lots of deer and wild turkeys.

This home is our retreat, so there is no cable or internet service. There is a flat-screen TV with DVD/Blu-ray player and a large library of DVD movies and music CDs.

Our home is not child-safe due to the unusual architecture. No children younger than 10, except infants.No more than 6 people allowed, preferably adults due to the fragile nature of our home. This is a home filled with one of a kind furniture , art works, sculpture and glass collections. Absolutely no smoking, even on decks.

5 day minimum

Wonderful home and host!

  • 5 of 5
The house and surrounding area is absolutely gorgeous. The owner provided us a guided tour, all the instructions we needed, a tour of the private beach, and was absolutely terrific to work with. We could not have asked for a better experience. We came in town to get married and this house provided the perfect backdrop to our entire visit. It had amazing amenities, comfort and space. From waking up to the birds chirping to having coffee or wine on the deck this home was the ultimate place to enjoy all Michigan has to offer.

Exquisite Modern Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The owner is warm, gracious and personable. The home is very clean and exquisitely decorated. A superb example of modern decor with beautiful artwork. Located on a high point the wind whistled through the trees.
We loved the trampoline; all of us having a hand at jumping, the youngest 20 months to the oldest 61. The home beautifully accommodated 7 adults and 2 children. The spacious kitchen has state of the art appliances. The owner had the makings of Smores for us to roast in the fire-pit but the weather was not in our favor. Instead we relaxed by the gorgeous gas fireplace. Our children loved playing with the owners toys. The adults loved looking out from the observation tower. An extensive book collection peaked our interest.
We would highly recommend this vacation home to friends.

Wonderfully cosy in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5
Clearly a house that has been restored with great pride and love. Wonderful art deco furniture throughout the house.. truly a collection. In our party were 4 adults and one 3 year old child. Ample space. Cosy and homely... great selection of music and dvds. And for the photography enthusiasts, there's plenty of photography magazines and books with fantastic pictures. We've stayed in over 10 holiday homes in the USA in the past 12 months, and this is undoubtedly the best of the bunch.

And that's just inside the house. The absolute best part of our stay was the idyllic hilltop tree-lined location. Fall foliage was in full swing... what a breathtaking sight.

We'll be back one day.
