The listing was an accurate description of the property. The area felt safe & friendly. Easy to walk to Downtown & River. Beautiful place for a holiday.

The place was great for our time in Grand Haven. Close to Lake Michigan and 20 minute from Muskegon for charter fishing. Clean, comfortable and quaint.

A great spot within walking distance to all of Grand Haven's food, shopping and activity areas like the beach or light fountain. Quiet, clean and convenient!

Nice location, quiet at night and really close to downtown. Great value if staying with another couple.

This home provided a great getaway for our family which included a newborn and another under two. We could walk to the boardwalk, farmers market, and downtown. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Our only complaint was that we didn't realize that two of the rooms didn't have doors. Two rooms were in the attic and you had to pass through one to get to the other. Neither of which had doors. Also, if you are planning on staying here with young children it may be helpful to know that the stairs in the house are very steep and don't have great handles. Our almost two year old made us very nervous, so we spent a long time next to him while he walked down the stairs "by himself."

Response from Christina:
Thanks Nicole - glad you all enjoyed your time. We have tried our best to show in the photos and accompanying descriptions for the listing that there is a curtain that divides the two rooms secondary to how the ceiling is up there and that the single bed is the the first room right off the top of the stairs. Will keep working to make that as obvious as we can in the listing. And yes those old homes and their steep stairs... glad your little one stayed safe while taking the stairs "by himself" :)

Ruth's Retreat is a great little cottage in the Grand Haven downtown area, close enough to walk to everything downtown and beaches, for us were a short drive, but you could walk. Nicely appointed and very comfortable. We would recommend this rental and would rent this unit again.

A Colorado native who loves community, travel, photography, hiking and time spent with family and friends. Owner of Ruth's Retreat, which is located in my dad's home town, where I spent some time every summer growing up. Ruth's is named after my Grandma Ruth who lived most of her life in Grand Haven and was also my best friend growing up. Our family has come to love this little house since I purchased it in 2012 and we look forward to each of our "work visits" that also include lots of sweet memories with family and friends. We hope your visit to Ruth's will be just as special! Learn more about the house at the blog too "Ruth's Retreat: A Vacation Home in Grand Haven Michigan"

On the flip side love staying in AirBnB's whenever I travel! Get to stay in areas of town you wouldn't find a hotel, meet wonderful local people, make a last minute trip when hotels might already be booked, get great local recommendations and truly experience the culture and community!
