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 Western Michigan

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:)

Grand Haven is the perfect beach getaway town. Beautiful sandy beaches & a scenic pier/channel boardwalk leading to a charming downtown area. Downtown offers quaint boutiques, surf shops, restaurants, coffee shops, a park and much more. 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.

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.

Perfect accomodations! What a week!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two boys (1 & 2) stayed here for our first vacation together. We absolutely loved everything about the property. The view was stellar, the beds were comfortable and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Beach toys, bicycles and both gas and charcoal grills were available to grill up a steak after a long day at the beach. The owner was very responsive to all my questions and we were completely satisfied. We plan on booking this place again in the future!!!!! Thanks a lot!

Lovely place for our anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Much cuter cottage in person and you can see the beach and Lake Michigan from nearly every room. Close enough to hear it as well if you open the windows. Owner was very helpful and prompt in email communications. Plenty of things to do inside the cabin like books, games and DVDs. They had plenty of kitchen cookware and equipment which we didn't need but was nice to know was available. Hope to visit this place again soon and this beautiful town was the perfect relaxing getaway.

will definately come back!

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage with a great location! We were close to the beach (lake views) and a short walk to Grand Haven's quaint downtown area. There is also a YMCA nearby with tennis courts, pickleball courts and a great play area for kids. The cottage has two separate areas that can be rented but that was not a problem at all as each area has it's own separate deck & entrances and there is also plenty of parking available. The cottage was super clean and the owner's very easy to work with. We will definitely be coming back.

One of the best locations near the GH beach

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay near the beach and lighthouse! You can watch the sunset from your bedroom or deck...or walk across the street and sit in the sand for a front row view. Great owners, lovely cottage, plenty of parking and amazing location. Would definitely stay again!
