Booking for Summer '18! Eight weeks already booked as we have many returning guests in the summer.
Very private home on sand dune set away from neighbors. Aptly decorated for your beach vacation. Block to Lake Michigan. Golf cart included (in season).
Welcome to TreeTops at Grand Beach! We appreciate you stopping by. As we run on multiple sites please know that we have 50+, 5-star reviews in total (and only 5 star) in under 3 seasons of owning/renting the property. Many reviews rave about the deck, the decorations, the serenity and/or privacy. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions about the house and/or something listed on the site.
TreeTops is a classic Grand Beach home nestled in the trees of Old Grand Beach; a block from Lake Michigan, the park/tennis courts, a quick 1/4 golf cart ride to the golf course and includes all the trappings for a great week or weekend. It's a very private property as evidenced by the pictures and many of the comments in the reviews. Both the house and adjoining deck are perched high off the street on a sand dune away from neighbors.
The home is 2,000 square feet with 3 bedrooms/2 baths and a monstrous deck that winds down to a dead-end street that allows you to walk the block to the beach in a few minutes. As well, your rental (in season) comes with the use of our golf cart, that seats four, and can quickly transport you to the beach, golf course or anywhere within the Village. Grand Beach is a golf cart “approved” village. You must have drivers license to operate golf cart on the streets.
The kitchen is very large and comes with all kinds of necessities for cooking and baking. We keep the spice cabinet well stocked so leave your spices at home. Re: grilling, we have a new, large gas grill for the barbecue king or queen. There's a bar off the kitchen that allows for additional seating to the kitchen nook table. See pictures for better detail. We have a Keurig coffee machine for your K-Cups as well as a traditional coffee maker too.
The main living area is very spacious and includes a large flat screen TV and a dual sided fireplace for fires in the off season. There's an additional 4 person, round table in the living room for added seating, working a puzzle and/or a great game of cards.
The three bedrooms upstairs bedrooms are spacious and all have newly acquired beds and linens. Total bed sleeping accommodates 9 (1 king, 2 queens, 1 twin bunk and one twin) and is ideally suited for three families with kids. This is not to say that some can't sleep downstairs but the house is really geared for six adults (max) and some children. Let me know if you have any questions about lodging.
For the summer vacationers, we have a surfboard, a kids kayak, 4+ boogie/wake boards, a half dozen beach chairs, four small child life vests and an umbrella for the beach.
We’re excited to offer you a great, private retreat home in Old Grand Beach for whatever your week or weekend calls for. Mid-week rentals also available and we rent year round.
A little history: the house was purchased at the end of 2014 and we completed the renovation in the spring of 2015...just in time for the rental season. All pics are current to the property today. TreeTops is also owner-managed.
So come stay with us. Many others have. We really think you'll enjoy the house as much as we have so far. And please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions and thanks for giving us a look.

Married, father of two living in Chicago. Been in the city for nearly 29 years. Bought our place in GB late in 2014 and couldn't be happier. Love going up in the off season and getting out the hustle and bustle of the city.
