Why Jill Scott chose Grand Haven
Grand Haven is a home town for us, we wanted our children to experience what we had and that's why we try to keep the cottage 'family friendly.'
What makes this Cottage unique
Whether there is sunshine or rain you can enjoy being at the cottage, we make sure you have plenty of books and games, and wireless for your computer, 3 cable televisions. Some people enjoy going just a few miles north to the Water Park, a few miles south to Saugatuck or a few miles east to the John Ball Park Zoo. We are just minutes away from the bike path that leads into Holland. The location is even great to stay in the winter and ski in the north just one and a half hours away. If you're a tennis player, we have that too right here in Shore Acres!

Great family retreat
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely spot.
Couldn’t Be Better
This was our second stay at “On the Beach,” and it was as great as last year. It’s hard to overstate the wonderful accommodations and thoughtful touches. New (to us) and appreciated this year were the new stove and dishwasher, and high quality cookware. The quantity and quality of linens was especially appreciated by our group. Thanks to the owners for their attention to everything needed for a fantastic vacation cottage.
Week of 6/22/19
Third stay for group of 15, ages 1-75.
Some spaces are tight but the amenities and beach feel are pretty awesome! Great place to recharge!
I can't say enough good things about this place. Jill has done a fantastic job of providing everything you could possibly need. This was our yearly vacation with our three adult married kids and grandkids and there was something for everyone to do and it was so kid friendly. Only two things you need to bring, life jackets and any special seasonings you may want. Seriously, there was a basket of sunscreen, binoculars, kites, firewood, hotdog roasting sticks...you name it, Jill has thought of it. Best Lake Michigan vacation ever!
THE BEST BEACH HOUSE
We had the absolute BEST time at “On the Beach.” Jill was so welcoming and made sure we knew where everything was. The house was packed full of everything we needed. Kids had plenty of toys, beach toys and books. The kayaks were so fun! We had wonderful meals on the deck overlooking the water and going in to town and restaurants were just a short drive away. This was the cleanest and most enjoyable beach house we have ever stayed at. Thank you Jill!
Thank you so much for your comments Mallory and Dylan I’m so glad that you enjoyed the cottage. I hope that you can return again. Have a great rest of your summer.
Great set up on the beach
Jill was a great host - very communicative before booking answering questions, after booking, leading up to check-in and even during our stay to answer a couple of questions. The house was really well stocked - from paper goods, seasonings/spices, beach towels, TONS of toys for the kids, pack and plays for the babies and even a high chair.
The house was clean and there was laundry available which was great to have as well.
One part of the layout of the house is a little goofy and was hard to understand from the photos - the main thing was that the only way to get from downstairs to the upstairs (where there were 2 BR and a bathroom + additional loft area) was via a spiral staircase that went from one of the downstairs bedrooms up to the top floor's living room... we had a handful of smaller kids with us, so we needed to close off the staircase from the upstairs (easy to do) but that meant that for the families staying upstairs, we had to use outside stairs every time which wasn't ideal when it rained. Other than that the house was great, we had plenty of space for 8 adults and 7 kids and loved being a staircase away from the beach!
Thank you Emili, I really appreciate your comments and hope that you and your family are able to return again. Kindest regards,
