LOOKING FOR A GREAT LOCATION?
This wonderful vacation home is located right on the very edge of the historic Old Towne District of Grand Haven...in other words: just steps away from downtown!
WANT SOMETHING NEW AND FRESH AND EXCITING?
Except for the delightful 19th Century era transom above the main entrance--featuring the original glass--you would never know this home was built at the turn of that century. It has been completely remodeled--walls to floors to ceiling,--inside and out.
TAKE A LITTLE TOUR WITH US
As you walk in the front door you immediately notice the nine foot ceilings and the beautiful solid oak hardwood floors throughout the main level. Continuing through the carefully decorated living room, your eyes take in the lovely furniture and the 42' HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player. Further on into the dining area is a beautiful sold oak dining table with ceramic tile inlays. With the leaf and the extra chairs...you have a comfortable seating for 6, with bar and bar chairs just a few feet away for other diners. Off the dining area and through the gorgeous french door is a den/office area with a comfortable desk and a bookshelf full of books, games, and DVD's for those times when you just want to relax at home. Moving into the kitchen space you cannot help but notice the gleaming stainless steel appliances, cabinets and counter tops.
Everything is so new and fresh and inviting!
Upstairs you will find three lovely bedrooms featuring completely new bedding, attractive duvets, and high thread count linens. Also on the upper level is a well appointed bath with luxury linens (there is one of those downstairs as well), and a complete laundry area with washer and dryer.
Want to have a cookout? Just walk out your back door to the completely private and fully fenced patio area, where you will find a premium brand Weber gas grill waiting, as well as a complete outdoor dining set, and comfortable lawn chairs nestled under your own overhanging shade tree.
OH, AND DID WE MENTION THE LOCATION?
Just step out your front door and plop yourself down on one of the comfy front porch rocking chairs and look around you. By the way ...are you noticing that clean fragrance that seems to be coming from the porch itself?...that's because it is constructed of solid cedar! Feel like coffee but don't want to make it? No problem, just take a slow stroll to find two great coffee houses... they are both right there on the main street in Grand Haven, and you are only two blocks away! Actually, everything in the downtown area is in easy reach with a walk of only a few minutes; from the Chinook Pier, and the Farmers Market to the delightful Grand Haven Musical Fountain and the relaxing Boardwalk. Great restaurants, pubs, a microbrewery, ice cream shops, mini-golf, charter fishing, Lake Michigan sunset sailboat tours, and so much more. It's all right here for you....no driving, no parking problems,no hassles!
All in all...a GREAT home to stay in, and a perfect location for that PERFECT Grand Haven vacation!

...we really appreciated the comfortable beds, clean home, upgraded decor, and all the supplies you thought to provide. The location is premium for SO MANY different activities and the price is fair for all that is provided.
This was our third year in a row here at the 2nd street home. Our kids love coming here and our oldest daughter refers to this house as our 'Michigan vacation home' throughout the year. This year we brought our newest addition with us and had another amazing week! The house is in great shape as it always has been since we have been coming here. The owners, Cory and Pat, are super friendly and really attentive to our needs.
We look forward to creating memories here as the kids keep getting older. We love the town and this house!!

We are retired native Michiganders. We live here in the summer now (right next door in Spring Lake, MI), and own and manage this property ourselves...no big impersonal 'Management Company' involved. We are only a few miles and a quick phone call away...and please feel free to call, even if all you want is directions to a local business or attraction.
We love this area, and we love the people here. We think you will too!
