About Dawn

Grand Haven has always held a special place in our hearts since it is where Tim and I first met on the beach back in 1988. We are now a family of six with three daughters and one son.

We love that guests create wonderful family memories at the cottage with many returning year after year.

Dawn purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dawn chose Western Michigan

We purchased this cottage because we felt it was the perfect location. It's close to the beach and close to downtown. We also loved that it has plenty of parking available.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because of it's cottagey feel, promixity to the beach, State Park, Channel and downtown. We really feel like the location can't be beat!

It was really clean and had everything you needed down to the salt and pepper. I have a 1 year old and it was very kid friendly. The view was gorgeous as well.

Best way to celebrate a birthday!

Very clean. Well stocked with amenities. (I was able to cook all of my meals easily.) Great view of the beach/lake from the large deck. I was a returning visitor, and would not rule out staying again! Thanks Dawn!!

Fantastic and Relaxing Location

  • 5 of 5

Dawn and Tim's cottage was a wonderful, clean, and homey place to stay. The booking was seamless. The cottage is convenient to the beach and town. An excellent place to stay and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and are looking forward to our stay in 2016

Great views, well-furnished, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upstairs unit for a week in early October. It was as described in the listing, very clean and well-maintained. It was an easy walk to the beach, and the views were great from the windows and the deck. We had everything we needed for cooking and enjoyed most of our meals at the house. For a inexpensive, very informal lunch, we liked Mr. Kozak's Gyros. Dawn was very helpful, answering questions and offering suggestions. I would recommend this property to others.

Sun & Sand

  • 5 of 5

Nice,clean cottage with a lot of personal touches throughout. Cheerfully decorated with summer and "at the beach" themes. We liked the nautical touch on the stairway leading up to 2nd floor. Great view of the pier & beach from the living room and the deck. Best of all a short walk to the beach and to town. We had a very nice time. The only thing missing was more time! Thanks, Dave & Julie

Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had our second stay at Dawn's cottage this year and it was another wonderful time. 2014 was cold, but this year was perfect and we got lots of use out of the bikes and grill! This location is quiet and the view of Lk Michigan is breathtaking anytime of day and we had plenty of sunsets this year. Very clean and spacious and perfect for everyone of all ages! Coast Guard week is great, as there are tons of things to do.
