Grand Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)


In a quiet neighborhood with sidewalks on Grand Haven’s north side with luxury linens, beautifully renovated with period details, lovely hardwood floors & plenty of space. Relax & play on outdoor porches/decks & large back yard! Walking distance to downtown & boardwalk. (or borrow one of our bikes!)


Come home after a great day at the waterfront, boating, shopping or fishing to the charm and luxury of the Retreat at 526. Located at 526 Adams, it's the peaceful vacation get-away you’ve dreamed of. One mile to the biggest beach with plentiful parking, so bring your picnic, beach chairs & toys! Closest Grand Haven location to North Shore Beach & Spring Lake.


Luxury high count cotton linens, towels & beach towels, and fresh decor all cleaned to perfection for your stay. Upstairs sleep in the quiet comfort of the large Master bedroom (QUEEN). The Bunk Room features fun and comfortable bunk beds (2 twins). Family & guests will love the second bedroom (FULL). The main floor features two living rooms, one with a pullout sofa (QUEEN). The adjoining bedroom has a twin bed and the main floor bathroom with shower.

(2 Bathrooms!)


Walk to the marina, riverfront Boardwalk, downtown shopping, restaurants & coffee shops. Private and removed from the noise, yet close to everything. Beaches are just moments away. (I recommend driving & parking so you can take all your beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers & toys)

Or jump on one of the bikes, enjoy the sights of Grand Haven and spend your day at the pier and sandy beach. Grand Haven’s biggest and best candy and ice cream store are just around the corner as well as restaurants and shops. (…and a quick trip to Starbucks/Biggby's!)

With modern, comfortable, very clean indoor and outdoor living spaces, you'll join our many returning guests in loving the Retreat at 526!

About Jon & Cathie Ulanch

We just had to visit once to fall in love with the white sand beaches and friendly atmosphere. We knew Grand Haven was the right town for us immediately. We enjoy taking in the beauty of the changing seasons and the variety of outdoor sports and activities! 5-Star Rated Accommodations..... the Retreat at 526 opened in 2008 to offer the type of cottage experience that we enjoy when we travel...the more stars the better!!

Jon & Cathie Ulanch purchased this house in 2008

Why Jon & Cathie Ulanch chose Western Michigan

This location on Grand Haven’s north side is the perfect mix of close proximity to activities, shops & beaches, but in a terrific neighborhood on a quiet street. We were excited to find just exactly the best combination of premium location and wonderful renovation. We loved the hardwood floors, arched doorway, great floor plan and nice room sizes. (and it was in excellent condition...super clean!)

What makes this house unique

You'll see why we chose this cottage...just stroll out the front door and take in Grand Haven!

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and spacious. We have a family of 4 and stayed here with another family of 4. There was plenty of room for everyone. The rental had everything we needed. The owners were extremely helpful and pleasant. It's a little bit of a walk to downtown but it is doable. Would definitely recommend this place.

Beautiful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property at an excellent location in Grand Haven. Very comfortable home, great backyard, and only a short walk from the downtown and beach area. The owners were very responsive and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful home with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a weekend getaway and stayed at Jon and Cathy's property. The house was very clean upon arrival. We were able to walk to Jimmy John's and Culvers for lunch, Biggby for coffee, and Sweet Temptations for dessert. Grand Haven State Park was just a few minutes away by car. Downtown was walking distance (but we drove due to our choices in shoes ;) ) The home was stocked with what we needed. We spent a lot of time outside on the back deck! The shed has things that may be needed at the beach - toys and chairs. There are also bikes to use in town! We were very happy with our stay at this property!

Wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

My two high school girlfriends and myself got together to celebrate our 60th birthdays. The accomodations were comfortable and Jon and Cathie thought of everything for their guests: bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, games, and all the things to make it feel like home. We loved sitting on the backyard deck enjoying the weather, a glass of wine, and laughing like we used to in high school! Great home and we hope to return again.

Everything we could have wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. We had a group of girls stay for a bachelorette party and it was everything we could have asked for and then some. Any kitchen utensil you could need was supplied along with laundry detergent, dish soap and hand soap. They even provided toilet paper! There's a fire pit in the back yard we didn't get to use because of the weather but all in all the house was great. It was very clean as well. We're hoping to come back next year and stay longer just for a summer trip!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house was close to down town and the beach making it very convenient for us. The house was set up great, there was 8 of us and we had more than enough room. The place was very very clean and it offered everything we needed! It had a wonderful backyard with plenty of seating! The owners were great they answered all my questions in a timely fashion, making packing much easier! We would highly recommend this place to anyone, we had the perfect time!!!
