Beautiful and brand-new Lake Michigan vacation home nestled atop a graceful dune within walking distance of charming downtown Grand Haven, MI. This home is unique in design and location.
Three carpeted, light and airy bedrooms, on the upper floor, each with windows on the lake. One bedroom sleeps up to 4. Another bedroom has a double bed. The third bedroom, the master suite, has a queen size bed and also has a walk-out balcony for those romantic sunsets. There are 2 full bathrooms upstairs; one in the master suite and another servicing the other guests.
The lower level consists of an open floor plan with a spacious living area, furnished in a contemporary, comfortable style, and includes a large flat-screen HD TV. Dining area and full kitchen with island are open to the main living area and look out to both the wooded dune to the north and Lake Michigan to the west. A full bath is located on the main floor as well.
Sliders open to an inviting furnished deck. A private outdoor shower at the end of the deck is great for rinsing off sandy suits after a day at the beach.
This home is fully furnished throughout.
I am fortunate to claim Grand Haven as my hometown. This is a beautiful lake-shore community where family and friends reside and gather year-round. After university in Kalamazoo, my husband and I settled in that vibrant community to work and raise our family. He works in real estate and I am an artist and educator. The locale here is perfectly suited to our professional endeavors and our interests. We both enjoy kayaking on the big lake, walking the beach and cycling.
Honore Lee purchased this house in 2007
This property has been in my family for over 100 years. The original home was a small, single-story cottage with a wide front porch on a sandy dune. While the dune is still sandy, the home not be maintained as it was, and so we tore it down and re-built on the same site. It now is oriented toward the lake, with a full second floor and an open plan on the main level. We love it here, and to share the lake breezes and comfortable setting with travelers.
Grand Haven can be a bustling town in the summer, and we feel that our dune-side location offers privacy and relaxation while still within walking distance of the action. In addition, the beach is expansive and inviting, just a downhill walk away! A favorite sunset viewing spot is at the top of the public staircase, "Weber's Stairs"-- grab a drink and join in for a toast to the day!
It was our first time using Home Away, and from beginning to end it was an easy experience!
This property was fantastic! We had a total of 5 women for a girls weekend, and the house could not have been more perfect! Ample room for us all, and the 3 bathrooms were a bonus!
We will definitely stay here again!
Our trip over Labor Day was wonderful. The upstairs refrigerator was on the blink, but they had another one in the basement and the owners were very apologetic. The house had plenty of supplies as far as the beach and the patio area was our favorite hang-out. The sandy side yard, along with the swing was perfect for a two year old to play. Parking was tight, but we found close parking near by for extra cars. The owners were close by when we needed anything and we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation time in Grand Haven.
Great stay! Lovely house in a quiet neighborhood. Lots of space with everything we needed and a nice outdoor area! My husband and I enjoyed walking to the beach and lighthouse every morning and strolling around downtown Grand Haven. Highly recommended!
Property is absolutely perfect for our family of 4. 3 full bedrooms and 3 full baths. Sits on top of a bluff overlooking the lake with incredible views. Location is ideal. Easy 5 minute walk and your toes are in the water. The lot is much larger than we realized with room for games, fire pit, and activities underneath the shade trees in the sand! Master suite w balcony is wonderful. Deck and grill are fantastic. Huge open family room and dining area for groups to hang out. We had a warm couple days at the end of our trip so we really could have used air conditioning. Having said that, every other night using fans, ceiling fans and the breeze it was perfectly comfortable. We could hear the waves crashing a few nights through our balcony screen. Would love to come back again next summer. Highly recommend.
House was just as described. Bit of uphill walk but keeps you in shape. Parking on concrete is very nice with room for two cars easily. Great place to stay.
My family had a wonderful time staying at this home on Lake Michigan. The house is well kept and updated. The patio and grill were great, especially since the weather was perfect.
The beach and Lake Michigan are what makes this lovely and vibrant town such a great destination. Moreover, it is a great place to live and its residents are friendly and diverse. We have much to offer for any traveler: from a lively music scene to festivals, outdoor activities, shopping, dining, art galleries and more. We are a growing community with great connections to Muskegon, Grand Rapids, Holland and Saugatuck-Douglas. Take advantage of every opportunity, or just kick back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings!
