"It's summer and the memories are just waiting to be made."

Come create priceless family vacation memories in this 3 BR, 2.5 BA cottage perched just up from the Grand Haven channel. The channel is within sight and the beach and downtown are within walking distance. It even comes with access to the shared association pool - a rare find in the heart of Grand Haven. Family and friends of all ages will love what "Lake Effect" has to offer.


This cottage will have you feeling right at home. On the main floor, you will find a fully stocked kitchen with large island fit with 3 bar stools, a dining room table with seating for 6 and a living room that leads you to the outdoor balcony. Enjoy the breeze from the channel as you grill or simply take in the summer serenity. Additionally on this floor is the master suite, laundry room, and half bath.

The kids are going to love their upstairs bedroom. It's a game room and bedroom all in one! It features a comfy sectional, large flat screen TV, and a game table. You will also find a guest bedroom and full bath on this upstairs floor.


This cottage sleeps 8. Bed linens are provided.

Master Bedroom (on main): Queen bed and en suite bathroom with double sinks

Walk the boardwalk to the beach for the sunset or head east to check out Chinook Pier, the farmers market, splash pad and the art fairs. Or grab a chair and head down to the large grassy area by the channel and watch the famous musical fountain show or holiday fireworks. It's a two block walk to downtown with its many restaurants, shopping, Central Park, and so much more.
