: Spacious vacation home, large screened porch, short stroll to beach, golf, tennis and playground nearby
My family has spent many generations enjoying the pleasant surroundings here. The draw varies from golf, biking, sunset viewing or simply relaxing, but the sheer delight of Grand Beach remains.
The Owner purchased this house in 1919
This home is a perfect respite from everyday stress. The spacious front & side porches are great for relaxing. The undulating dunes and the wooded landscapes of the village charm the soul.
This property offers something for anyone. The electronic geek can enjoy the WiFi while his golfing buddy hits the links. Or rent a wave runner or a kayak and test the waves today. The fully stocked kitchen or grill makes prepping easy so all can rehash the days events at the spacious table. Prefer to order food? Lots of locals deliver. Then plan the next day's adventures --beaching, golfing, shopping, museum visiting, playing tennis, biking on the trails, visiting the International Friendship Garden, or testing Lady Luck at the casinos.
What a wonderful vacation home. Charming house large enough for our family of eleven including the dog. Everything was there to use all we had to pack was our clothes. The closet was full of clean beach towels. Garage had beach chairs, umbrella, rafts and a gas grill. The large porch was a perfect place to relax and read or nap. I didn't even need to bring a book because I found one I hadn't read in the bookcase, there was even a cookbook. The beach is truly close and the grandkids could go back and forth as they wanted. The Grand Beach community was very friendly when we walked our dog through the neighborhood and she was allowed on the beach in the morning and evening. Shopping was convienent, just a short drive into town. The owner was very quick to respond to our needs and made us feel at home. We loved it.
We just returned from our vacation in Grand Beach last week and had the most wonderful time staying in this home! The size was perfect for our group of 7 and everyone had enough space to spread out and read books, play games or take naps on the porch. The beach was a very short walk away which was convienent as we all wanted to go to/from the beach at different times throughout the day. The kitchen was fully stocked as was the closet full of beachtowels and garage full of beach toys. Every bed was comfortable and one of our group even spent every night sleeping out on the porch to enjoy the cool evening breezes. When we return to this area, we will definitely be renting this home again. Loved it!!!
We consider the Grand Beach area of Lake Michigan the best kept secret around! We have stayed in the area for a few years, but this was the first time we rented this house. It was perfect for our large family. It is less than a 2 minute walk to the beach. This house had everything we needed. The kitchen was impressively stocked and we grilled out every night. There were coolers, beach towels, and beach chairs (those are items we don't typically find in rentals). There were plenty of books, toys and kid-sized bikes. We played soccer and bocce ball in the nice side yard, and played lots of board and card games on the nice, big screened-in porch. Our Verizon cell phones worked really well there. Owner was very easy to work with and very accommodating! Although there was no a/c (we knew that when we rented, of course), we considered it as part of the ambiance of a 100 year old house. The house had fans in every room and nice breezes off the water, so we were very comfortable for the most part! We will definitely return but stay even longer next time!
My family and I have gone to this house for several years and it's perfect! Across the street from the beach, the porch is great for naps and chats. Very relaxing! And a fantastic getaway.
With a large family and a budget, we tried our first vacation rental. Our expectations were modest, yet when we arrived at this quaint, large, 100 year old house in Grand Beach, we were charmed and surprised at how close it was to the Lake (literally across the street). Further how warm and inviting the home was with everything one would need to have an enjoyable vacation. The beach was "Grand" and the sunsets and cocktails were amazing ,(enjoyed from the beach, gazing West or from a friendly neighbor's deck overlooking the lake). You soon forgot you were in the Midwest. Though air conditioning was not in the home, the open windows and stiff breezes made this late July, early August experience quite comfortable, with an added bonus of the sound of the waves serenading you to sleep each night. The lake was very warm and we had the benefit of very calm days, allowing my kids to get in the water at sunrise and pull them out kicking and screaming at sunset. Needless to say, it was an extremely memorable and wonderful 7 days. If you are looking for an old fashion "trip to the shore" this is your place.
