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 Grand Haven

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!

Cute vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Very clean home! Cute and charming! However it was very warm when we were there and unable to change the thermostat on the air conditioner. Also the beds were not comfortable.

Owner's Response: Glad you liked the cottage! Sorry it was SO unseasonably warm during your stay. We have never heard the beds are uncomfortable before but have gone ahead and replaced some of the older mattresses.

Beautiful house. Great location. Walk to beach and to town. Wonderful patio with view of beach. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms make it cool at night to sleep. The kitchen has everything you can think of for cooking. Everything is spotless.

Clean and well stocked. Loved having parking right there, bikes and beach toys, grill and internet! Loved the decor, beds were comfy, shower was great! Just A+ all around. Overhead fans in every room were perfect to cool the house. Can't wait to return. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

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.
