Thank you for sharing your family home with us - we had a wonderful vacation! Everything was thought of and provided - wonderful house, full of surprises. Felt less like a rental and more like visiting grandparents' summer cottage - so warm and authentic, it was a treat for the soul! Our dog had the time of his life too - loved running on the beach and in the waves, meeting friendly neighbors and other pups. Beds were so comfortable and house extremely well appointed. The owner has been very responsive, accommodating, and a pleasure to interact with.
Perfect family getaway
My husband and I have vacationed on the west side of MI for years, we really wanted a little more privacy away from the craziness of typical Grand Haven beach. This cottage was perfect. It is adorable inside and out. Plenty of room for us and our 3 kids. Our dog was in heaven. Everything you would need they had, beach chairs, umbrellas, I kayaked every day. The kitchen well equipted. The beach was great. And plenty to do with 2 big cities 10 miles in each direction. I would highly recommend and would absolutely go back. It was the best week of my summer.
Our family had a great time at this house! The layout is great for kids and adults alike. Very comfortable and reminded my mother-in-law so much of the cottage she spent her summers in as a little girl. The beach is just steps away and is very private. The kayaks were a hit as were the ping pong and pool tables. The house is equipped with multiple sound systems and easily hooks up to an iPad to play music. Toys for the kids and board games that were provided kept everyone entertained the one day of rain we had. The sleeping accommodations worked out great and and the A/C was a great added bonus! Sandy Point Beach House just down the street was a great restaurant we went to 4 times and it didn't disappoint. Both, Holland and Grand Haven are quaint towns that have a lot to offer as far as shops and restaurants. All in all, our family had a great time and would come back to this house any day!

Excellent Lake Michigan Cottage!
This cottage is perfect for a family looking to spend time on Lake Michigan. The cottage is spacious and well appointed with everything you need. Plenty of room to relax after enjoying the water and the beach. The owners are great people and keep the cottage in excellent condition. The beach area is very nice with plenty of recreational items (chairs, kayaks, row boat, etc.). "Blue Heaven" is a gem and a perfect place to relax!
