About Marilyn Barrett
We grew up in Grand Haven and west Michigan and our family still resides in town and in the area. Inn keeping is a family tradition, our parents owned and operated Kastle Inn Resort, about an hour's drive north on Pickeral Lake in Newaygo, MI
Marilyn Barrett purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Marilyn Barrett chose Grand Haven
Our cottage was built in the 1930's as a family vacation property and has been with our family since 2006. In 2015 new floors, beds, oven, and paint were added. We put on a new front deck last fall. The cottage is up on a hill and less than two blocks from the river waterfront, and two away from downtown. You'll be close to the action, but ensured a quiet night's sleep. Grand Haven is an ideal family vacation destination. West Michigan prices are generally very reasonable.
What makes this Cottage unique
A library corner, to hold our collection of books, was installed by local Amish carpenters. This cottage is in a quiet and established neighborhood. Our neighbors are friendly and supportive of Grand Haven's many offerings. The cottage has a TV with cable, but it isn't large. We encourage renters to get out and explore, or, on rainy days, curl up with a book on the covered front porch.

Great property and location!
I took a 5 day trip to Grand Haven with a friend for a mom’s getaway. The cottage is in the perfect location. We walked to the beach, down town and the river everyday. Great coffee shops, restaurants and shopping nearby. Quiet neighborhood, very safe and clean. The cottage was spotless and comfortable. Everything we needed was there. Looking forward to coming back with my family!
House was exactly as described, well stocked and was within blocks of downtown and boardwalk. Pronto Pup is just a block away. My only setback was the steep hill coming back from either downtown or the boardwalk. I definitely got a work out
Cute little cottage in great location
We visited Grand Haven for a long weekend in September. Harbor Hill Cottage is just two blocks from the river and Snug Harbor riverfront restaurant. It was fun to watch the boats go in and out of the harbor. Downtown was just a four to five-block walk--very convenient. The cottage was cute and clean--plenty of room for just the two of us.
We discovered Morning Star restaurant on Washington St. and ate breakfast there each of the three mornings we were there. It was so good and had so many offerings, we had something different and unique each morning. Grand Haven State Park and beach is just blocks from the cottage. One day we rode our bikes to the park and another day we rode along the riverfront. The cottage is in a great location!
Marilyn was very informative and made herself available if we needed anything. We would recommend the Harbor Hill Cottage as a very convenient way to see Grand Haven.
Super Great Terrific!!
It’s like visiting a nicely kept cottage that your family owns.
Very clean, well furnished, all needed amenities stove, fridge, AC, cable TV, WIFI, etc...
Sits in a very nice colonial neighborhood, very near the beach and downtown.
We “will” return. 👍
Thanks for choosing our ‘cottage’! I look forward to your return! Wonderful guests!
Great location. Very clean
We had a great time in Grand Haven. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood close to the water and downtown. Very comfortable and clean accommodations. Our only suggestion is a bigger tv in the living room.
Great rental home!
Nice house in a great little neighborhood close to the water and also to town! Highlights of the house: front porch, very well-stocked library of books, and comfortable bed!
