Note from Owner: "In 1904, our family ancestors first came to camp beside Lake Michigan.  To get here, they had to row a boat the last mile or so of Pigeon creek and across Pigeon lake.  Absolutely charmed by the beauty of nature here, our family made this a regular summer event.  After a few years, the family built a cottage with a group of friends to share.  Now, four generations later, the present cottage built in 1959 is still the destination for family gatherings.  This is an absolutely wonderful place for children, teenagers, and families to spend time in the summer with so many activities such as swimming, sunning, body surfing, walking on the beach, hiking in the dunes, campfires and cookouts, watching the sunset, or visiting attractions in the areas of Grand Haven and Holland.  Our family welcomes you to visit and we hope you enjoy spending time here in this beautiful setting as much as we do."

Grand Haven is located on the shores of Lake Michigan. We are a quaint, little beach town recently named the "Happiest Seaside Town in America," by Coastal Living Magazine. Here, your family will find Grand Haven State Park, which was voted in the Top 10 Best Beaches in the world by Travel+Leisure Magazine. The boardwalk stretches one and a half miles, beginning at Chinook Pier and ending at the iconic red lighthouse. Historic, affordable, and amusing, the trolley is continually traveling throughout the waterfront and downtown areas dropping you off at any desired location. At the end of the day, grab a blanket to sit on and head to the Waterfront Stadium where the whole family can enjoy the Musical Fountain. This synchronized lights, water, and music show has coined the title "World's Largest." This free show plays nightly at dusk throughout the summer. Lucky for you, all of this is just minutes away and waiting for you to revel in. 

Holland is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa. Here, you can spend your days at Holland State Park where there is plenty of room for family fun along the white, sandy beaches. You and your family can take an excursion to Nelis' Dutch Village, DeKlomp Wooden Shoe Factory, and Veldheer Tulip Gardens. These places will bring you back in time to experience the Netherlands of the 1800's. If you find yourself in Holland the first week of May, be sure to take a look at the over 6 million tulips blooming throughout the city during Tulip Time festival, which was named the "Best Small Town Festival in America" by Reader's Digest Magazine and received USA Today's "2016 Best Flower Festival!" Downtown Holland is known as the "Great American Mainstreet." Make sure to spend a day downtown where an abundance of shopping and dining can be found, as well the funky street performers who will surely entertain you with their acrobatics, magic, music and more! When evening approaches, you can return to the beach to watch the sunset while roasting marshmallows over one of the many fire pits found along the sandy shore. From the award-winning downtown to the exceptional beaches and Dutch heritage, your family will fall in love with Holland's small town charm and big city amenities.

Had a minor problem with plumbing on south unit but plumber was on-site within a couple of hours and fully resolved the problem.

Since we hadnt been at the cottage for a few years, we noticed that both sides had some improvements to the furnishings; couches, rugs, windows, etc. We would like to recommend that both double mattresses in the downstairs and upstairs bedroom on north side unit, needs to be replaced. We flipped the mattresses, but it really didnt help, they both had a sag in the middle. The upstairs one was so bad, that we used the hide-a-bed in the living room instead.

This was our 3rd visit to Serenity Right on the Beach. We had a wonderful time. We rented both sides of the duplex as we had our grown children and our grandchildren with us. It was perfect for us and we loved our time on the beach! The only problem was that there was a heatwave and the temperatures were about 100. With no AC, only fans, it was quite uncomfortable in the cottage, especially since there was no breeze. Thank goodness we were able to cool off in the Lake. I also want to mention that being in a gated community provided an element of safety that we appreciated. The wireless internet and voice over internet phone service were also a big benefit to those family members who needed to stay connected.
