Western Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-10)

Recently remodeled and fully furnished cottage in Spring Lake.

Please contact us for reduced long term rental rates between September - June!

This completely furnished three-bedroom, one-bath, sleeps 8-10. Fully equipped with all bedding, kitchenware, and washer/dryer for additional convenience. As a bonus, you'll find many board games, movies, karaoke machine (lots of fun!) and books...just in case of a rainy day!

This quaint cottage is a great retreat for someone with a fast paced lifestyle. Relax in the private, fenced backyard with a deck and outdoor patio with furniture, hammock, grill and fire pit.

Our cottage is close to paved bicycle path which runs throughout the tri-cities area, leading you directly to downtown Grand Haven and Lake Michigan! Minutes to the lake, walk to antique stores, close to shopping and dining! Take our kayaks (and life jackets) to the end of the street to get into Spring Lake and enjoy some time on the water. We are close to sand dunes and many great hiking places.

Family friendly with pack-n-play, high chair, and lots of toys for kiddos.

The pictures on the site are a little dated, new ones are coming soon! Improvements since these pictures include an all new bathroom, exterior of the cottage is now a crisp white with a great new front porch, and the beds have been rearranged to have a total of 3full beds, 2twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa!

About Stephanie Cutter

For our first anniversary, we planned to go to California's wine country to celebrate. At the last minute, we decided to save some money and visit Michigan instead. We found a cottage online and were having such a wonderful time on our trip, that we called a local Coldwell Banker Realtor and asked to see some homes. Before we left, we had purchased this cottage and have loved it ever since!, it wasn't cheaper than a California trip, but has made many more memories!!!

Stephanie Cutter purchased this house in 2005

Why Stephanie Cutter chose Western Michigan

We loved Spring was a little cheaper than Grand Haven, but so close to everything we wanted to do on our vacations. We live in Chicago now in a condo, so on our trips to MI we wanted to have a yard, a hammock and our own house! We are able to ride our bikes without the Chicago city traffic, go to Lake MI and enjoy a beautiful beach, little shops (our favorite is an independent book store in Grand Haven, plus several great antique shops!) and restaurants, and quiet days and nights in the backyard.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite part is surely the ability to be in the back yard, get to the lake and Grand Haven, and nice nights on the town! In the back yard, we can nap, play games, read our books, my husband paints, and we never have to leave! However, there are plenty of places to go for dinner and drinks! Walk along the board walk to Old Boys Brewhouse and dine on the patio overlooking the lake channel. Or, drive a couple miles west on M104 and visit Vandermill, a cider mill with great food, live musing, and family friendly outdoor seating. We have frequently gone to Snug Harbor in Grand Haven and enjoyed our meal from their deck while overlooking the lake, or have a nice lunch at Kirbys from their great roof deck!!

Fantastic place, great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this place thought of everything! The place was very cozy and clean and very welcoming. There were board games, kids toys, DVD's and VHS movies. It felt just like home, we will likely be staying here again!

Great cottage in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this adorable little place while waiting to move into our new home. It is fully furnished and has everything you need to feel at home. It is also well cared for, inside and out. The house is located just a short distance from the bike path, and is conveniently located to get just about anywhere in less than 10 minutes. The owners are extremely attentive and helpful. If you're looking for a fancy place with all the bells and whistles, this might not be for you; but if you're looking for a cute, comfortable, fully furnished cottage that lets you relax and enjoy all that this area has to offer, you should consider staying here.

Quaint, Cute and Shabby Chic Experience

  • 5 of 5

Seven women had such a blast visiting the Spring Lake / Grand Haven for a bachelorette weekend. The home accommodations were clean, comfy, well-appointed and exact to our expectations. We would all stay there again. As well as a quick and reasonable cab fare to pretty much anywhere we needed to go. All the resident neighbors were super friendly and tolerant of our come-and-go traffic. Stephanie was very helpful in prompt response and providing details not only about the home but area amenities. The only thing we found not-so-favorable was that the lawn crew showed up a little on the early side Saturday morning when the mothers in our group were really hoping to sleep-in.

Grear Little place in a cute little town

  • 5 of 5

We try to book this cottage ecery year. Been going 3 years now for nice little vacations from Chicago. The cottage is very nicely decorated, and has all you need to have a great time.(even bikes, childrens toys, etc). The town of Spring LAke is cute, we always go down to the VanderMill Cider mill, this year they added a stage and have great outdoor concerts. For more "hustle" we go into Grand Haven. All in all, this place has a good amount of space in a good location to have a nice MI weekend.

Super adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two dogs, and I just got home from a 3 day stay at this adorable cottage. We were extremely impressed by how well maintained and clean the house was. We loved how quiet and peaceful the neighborhood was and how close it was to Grand Haven where we found a great beach with an area for pets. The couple who own the house were extremely helpful as well. They were easy to get a hold of and were more than willing to make sure our stay was perfect. I would definitely recommend this cottage if you're looking for a relaxing vacation rental! I'm sure we'll be staying there again in the future!

Charming cottage near the lake.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get away with our two dogs after a week long high school reunion.The listing was just as described-walking distance to spring lake with a common area to sit and eat breakfast and watch the lake. If you make friend with the neighbors they'll take you for a pontoon ride and they love dogs.The cottage was more charming than described, Every built- in and the decor is just wonderful, a meeting of modern and shabby chic. Great bike and hike areas, close to beaches, downside-there is no more trolley service near then, no place within walking distance for coffee, the dvd player was not working and it was a little dirty when we got there, but we found out from the neighbors there had been quite the party there and they were happy to see us. I loved Old Dogs for lunch or dinner or a brew. There always Fricano's we never miss it, and the thrift shop nearby I love so well. I would recommend this to family and friends. We'll come again!
