Activities/ Events

Grand Haven is a great place to vacation for many reasons. There is a lot to do here, but it is also a very relaxing place to be. Our large deck is perfect for sitting with a cup of coffee and a book and just enjoying the view. With our comfortable rooms, you may never want to leave. But if you do, Downtown Grand Haven is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride offering plenty of shops, activities, restaurants and bars. Grand Haven is a great place for a bike ride, stand up paddle boarding or kayaking. Grand Haven is also very popular for kite boarding. Venture out and try something new, Sit and relax, or do a combination of both. It's totally up to you.
