About Mary Alice

Born and raised Michigander, and have lived in Grand Rapids for 30 years.

Mary Alice purchased this house in 2012

Why Mary Alice chose Michigan

Oh my, where to begin? I knew the previous owner very well. His name was Red and he lived on this street for more than 50 years. I brought him Sunday dinner every week and we were good friends. After he passed away, the family agreed to sell me the home.

Little did I know what was in store for me!

We had it quickly renovated in 2012 in order for it be move in ready. Almost immediately after the renovations were finished, we experienced the worst flood in 100 years. The entire house needed to be rebuilt from the inside out.

It was then that I realized I wanted to make this into a wonderful home for travelers and vacationers. Two years later we've created a custom home for travelers to enjoy this wonderful spot on the Grand River.

What makes this house unique

Location! This house has it's own piece of the river. It's absolutely perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. At night you can sit outside and stare up at the stars, and during the day you can feel the refreshing breeze off the water.

Great Change of Pace From the City

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect and the place was cosy, well maintained and clean. Mary Alice met us on arrival and was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We visited Meijer Gardens and this place was only about 10 minutes away as well as being very convenient to downtown Grand Rapids. Place was family friendly too and we were able to comfortably sleep 4 with our 2 kids on the sofa bed/pack & play. We will definitely stay again when we get the opportunity.

This home is just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness! This home is amazing and so is Mary Alice! She has stocked the home so guests have everything they need to feel absolutely comfortable and relaxed. She has thought of everything! A fully stocked kitchen with all the staples, a bathroom with extra towels and bath products in case you need them. There is so much attention to detail! The home is also spotless!!!! The view of the lake and just sitting in the serene outdoors on her deck was wonderful! Mary Alice was wonderful about answering questions and was very responsive. Thank you so much for making our weekend so unforgettable!

Comfort, Convenience, and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Mary Alice's place is an excellent getaway, and she is more than available for questions or suggestions. Loved being greeted at the rental. Super close to Grand Rapids, and close enough to other Michigan cities to have some day trips out to the lake! The house itself is spotless and extremely cozy. We had no problem settling in and feeling at home. We had a great time using the kayaks and visiting the vineyard that was very close by. Thanks for an incredibly relaxing vacation!
