Grand Haven is the perfect beach getaway town. Beautiful sandy beaches & a scenic pier/channel boardwalk leading to a charming downtown area.

Our cottage is also close to the YMCA which offers a great play area for the kids as well as tennis courts for the adults. Saturdays include the farmers market and there is always the trolley to tour the area.

Good value, great location

  • 4 of 5

A good value for the money, but not a lot of natural light (downstairs unit) and you can definitely hear your neighbors above. Very clean though and the proximity to GH state park is excellent.

Fantastic two weeks in Grand Haven!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry I'm a little tardy with the review, I normally don't do online reviews, but I'll make an exception here. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 19 Emmett Crt, lower unit. This is the first time we've stayed for two weeks, it was the middle of July, and we completely lucked out with the weather, with high-70s and low 80s almost every day, while back home was baking in triple-digit heat and humidity!

Tim and Dawn really are great people, and any concerns we had were dealt with immediately, we couldn't have asked for better responses from them. We'll definitely be placing this address high on our list for the future!

Easy walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a family because it is an easy walk to the beach yet the cottage is located on a quiet, dead end street. The homeowners gave us access to the shed which contained bikes, beach chairs, a wagon and sand toys. Our three year old grandson liked the games and toys inside and the adults liked the books. We were only there two nights so didn't take advantage of the washer/dryer which would have been indispensable on a longer stay. We did use the gas grill. The house was very clean and Dawn was always quick to answer our questions via text or email.

Perfect Grand Haven Location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is the ideal location in Grand Haven, just steps away the State Park, with good views and easy access to downtown. The home itself is well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. My family made good use of the provided bikes and beach chairs. The owners, Dawn and Tim, were extremely polite and responsive. Thank you for great weekend!

One block from great beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the lower level of this house and really enjoyed the short, one-block walk to the state park beach. This is a very busy beach but you can see the beach from the house and time your visit to avoid the crowds, mornings until noon and after 5 p.m. We loved it!

House is great, no washer and dryer but we knew that before we came. The upstairs bedroom is delightful with a great view of the beach. We like the touch pad entry, no fussing with keys. Also everything you could want for a beach vacation was provided in garage - chairs, toys, boogie boards. Bring your own beach towels.

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 the old cottage charm yet modern updates of our cottage and so enjoy hearing about all of the great memories made while staying here. Many of our guests return year after year with one returning for the 25th year in a row.

Dawn purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dawn chose Grand Haven

We loved the location of our cottage as it is close to everything (beach, pier, channel, YMCA, downtown) AND it is located on a quiet culdesac street (off of the busy Harbor View Drive). We also have plenty of parking which is rare considering our proximity to the beach and in comparison to the majority of cottages in our area (we loved this feature:)
