While we are right near the beach, you can still walk everywhere in town within 20 minutes! Park your car and forget about it. The Cottage sits on the bluff just above the City of Grand Haven Beach and the Grand Haven State Park! Peterson Ridge is a small path on the plateau between Edward Ave and the bluff over the beach. There are NO cars on Peterson Ridge, so it is very private and kid-friendly. Our cottage backs to the Woods of Mulligan's Hollow with miles of trails separating the beachfront cottages from downtown Grand Haven! The woods keep the cottage cool on even the warmest days!

What a great house! Lots of space and so cute. The owner is fantastic and very easy to work with.
2nd time a group of 6 adults have used this house for meetings - and will again. So quiet that one sleeps better here than at home! Everything works, the rooms are comfortable in size (first floor is particularly generous) and convenient to everything.
We had a great time here! Right by the beach and downtown grand haven. Perfect location.
Our family and friends enjoyed our stay here. It was a short walk to the beach, the neighbors were very friendly, and the neighborhood was safe. The only thing I did not expect was for there to be no A/C downstairs. I may have not seen that in the details. However, the fans kept the temperature tolerable even during the day. We could not get tv/cable to work in some rooms (some directions would have been nice), but Netflix/Hulu worked fine. Hot water heater went out one morning, but Cory (owner) was very responsive and had it replaced with a new one by the time we got back from the beach that evening. Not being able to park a third car was a concern, but we parked one in a residential area near the hospital each night and at the city beach parking lot during the day. A little inconvenient, but no real issues there. Overall, we enjoyed this place very much.
Our week at this property in Grand Haven was absolute perfection. I mean this sincerely, if you’re from out of state you would think you’re staying near the ocean. The house was great with five comfortable bedrooms. The beautiful beach is a short walk away. Cabin backs up to awesome wooded trails in Mulligan’s Hollow. Our teens had free roam of the beach and downtown Grand Haven ... we’d all meet back up at the cottage for dinner and sunset viewing down the street. Cory was terrific and easy to work with. Such a great week!!! Highly, highly recommend!
