About Leanne Crowell

I have lived near Lake Michigan now for about 30 years, moving hear from Grand Rapids, MI. I find it hard to imagine not being near the beach at this point. Grand Rapids is a nice city but living near the water offers a peace that can't be duplicated, and it's free! My husband has lived his entire life in this area and runs his own company in Muskegon. I am able to do bookkeeping and property management from my home or if lucky enough from a warm sunny spot near our many friends we have acquired in Florida.

Leanne Crowell purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Leanne Crowell chose Western Michigan

In 2000 my husband and I purchased this building on the main street of Downtown Grand Haven so that I could open a boutique and live a personal dream of having my own business. I chose Grand Haven for a few good reasons. 1) It was close to home. 2) Grand Haven was a perfect small town. It had the right mix of people and they loved and supported their town. 3) Grand Haven was my favorite place to spend my free time.

It seemed a perfect spot to build and business and a sense of community. My experience was wonderful and a dream come true. I was welcomed with open arms by locals and other business owners and soon became knitted into the community. This experience has left me only wanting to make it a better place. I no longer run my boutique, I left that behind after

10 years so that my husband and I could travel more freely, mostly in the winter :) but I still own this wonderful property and find Grand Haven a great investment. I rent out the boutique below and the apartment above is still a vacation apartment for guests to enjoy. My husband and I live close by and are very hands on, we think of our apartment as our possible summer home if we ever make the move to become regular snow birds and let go of our own home on the lake. I hope you enjoy our apartment for it was a dream come true for me and will always be a blessing in our lives.

What makes this apartment unique

Although I have never made this apartment our home, we have stayed there quite a bit. I think what I love about it is that it has so many conveniences. I love that the businesses Downtown are still family owned and operated. Many of them have raised their families right at work, making all of us extended family. People are friendly and helpful. It is the kind of town that makes you feel safe and cared about. I always meet visitors who are returning because they grew up vacationing in Grand Haven and want to keep the tradition going. Grand Haven is a slice of the American Dream.

Awesome Location, Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent our honeymoon in this fantastic condo. We walked in and it looked exactly like it does in the pictures. The owner was great in all communications and she was extremely helpful and nice. It was so nice having a washer and dryer in the condo! We were so sad to leave the place where we had such a relaxing week. I have been going to Grand Haven all my life, but I have never stayed in town. I absolutely loved it! It was so great that all the action was just a short walk away. We walked to the pier almost every night to watch the beautiful sunsets. Every morning, I'd walk to a great coffee shop with extremely friendly staff. And of course, we could easily walk to get ice cream or grab a Pronto Pup. We cannot wait to go back and I will definitely tell everyone about this condo.

Delightful Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location on Washington Street in the middle of downtown, close to excellent restaurants, shops, and the river walk. The apartment is a walk-up above a clothing store. It was immaculately clean, spacious, and comfortable. Very nicely decorated, with a bright and airy feel and well furnished. Also enjoyed the deck off the master bedroom. Though not a great view, it was a quiet and relaxing space. The bathroom would be better with an updated shower rather than the old claw foot tub and shower curtain, and there was no climate control in the apartment. Apparently the thermostat is controlled in the shop below. But we were comfortable and the ceiling fans were helpful. All-in-all a very nice place and we hope to be back.

Loved Grand Haven!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 loved this apartment in downtown Grand Haven. Our adult children liked being able to walk to shops, restaurants, and bars on their own schedules, and it was close to beaches and everything else too. Location is great! The open floor plan allowed plenty of room for us all to relax and be together. It was fun to look out the front windows and see/hear the hustle and bustle in town, although it always seemed quiet in the apartment. This place has a lot of charm! And we really appreciate being able to bring our dog along. Great vacation!

Awesome location in town for shopping and musical fountain! Open, airy and beautiful inside. Very comfortable and cozy. Only drawbacks are shower is a freestanding tub with a pull around curtain and there is no stairwell to the deck in the back. The pros definitely outshine the cons in this great vacation spot! We loved it.

Had a great week in Grand Haven. Apartment is spacious, bright, clean, and in a perfect location. We loved grabbing coffee from the various coffee shops on Washington, going on runs to the pier, and walking to the musical fountain. We definitely recommend this place!
