About Jen Brugger

Jen Brugger purchased this studio in 2013

Why Jen Brugger chose Western Michigan

We purchased this historic property in 2013. Originally it was the Oval Inn 'Inn Keepers' residence when the house was a part of what is now the Blue Water Inn. When the door opened up for us to purchase it, we walked through it. What more can we say. It's a blessing to be on the lake and to share it with those who come to visit.

Excellent choice for a small family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and young daughter stayed here for 9 days/8 nights in late August. The pictures don't do it justice - the rooms are ample. We used both the hideaway sofa and an inflatable mattress (provided) when our teenager us for a couple days.

The location is ideal if you plan to spend a lot of time on the beach. It's a very short drive or 15 minute walk to downtown or Mulligan's Hollow. You are near the Y and Duncan Woods or anything else you might want to do while in Grand Haven.

The Bruggers were terrific hosts. Attentive but not intrusive, they were very quick to respond to any question or need.

My husband and I stayed here with our 15 month old daughter. It was very clean, the owners were extremely helpful and friendly, and the location could not have been better. The water is literally across the street. The whole unit was clean and the bathroom was great. It was someone of a struggle for us not to have any patio or outdoor space while our daughter was napping, but we made the best of it. I would give this unit 5 stars if the bed was more comfortable... but other than that, great stay!

This was our second stay here at Priscilla's wish. It has everything you could hope for in a vacation rental! We love how close it is to the beach and to downtown. The size was perfect for us, we really enjoyed having a kitchen to help offset vacation expenses. The owners, Josh and Jen, are extremely accommodating, friendly and caring. This is by far the nicest place we have found as a vacation rental property.

Great location and really cute place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here when we had a chance to get away from the city for a few days. The apartment is decorated very nicely, everything was new and clean, and it was a great location to get to the beach, biking or restaurants. The owners were very responsive and friendly. Grand Haven is a great place to bring bicycles with a variety of paths for riding. We biked around the town and to Holland (longer treck) and then relaxed on the beach. Really lookiing forward to returning.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Grand Haven while our daughter attended a nearby camp. This apartment met our needs perfectly. With easy access to both the beach and downtown shopping and restaurants, we had a variety of activities. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and cozy. Another plus was the reserved parking space in front of the unit. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Grand Haven Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Quiet get-away across from Grand Haven State Park. The beach and lighthouse pier are just steps away and it's also an easy walk to downtown. Recently remodeled one bedroom w/ great workmanship and decor. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Can't wait to return.
