West Michigan has one of the most beautiful shorelines in America. With its soaring dunes, clear waters, and some of the most incredible sunsets anywhere, the Michigan Lakeshore has something for everyone.
The Lake Michigan coastline is also dotted with towns ranging from big and vibrant, such as Holland and Muskegon, to small and quaint like Saugatuck and Pentwater. Each one has its own personality, molded by the communities that call them home.
Located just north of Grand Haven, the village of Spring Lake has some of the prettiest waterfront properties in West Michigan. Wrapped around the 1,000 acre body of water that bears its name, Spring Lake lies on the Grand River just two and a half miles from its exit into Lake Michigan.
With 25 miles of shoreline and depths of up to 40 feet, Spring Lake is home to great fishing, has room for watersports like wakeboarding, and provides easy access to the Grand River and Lake Michigan by boat.
Waterfront property in Spring Lake gives homebuyers a great alternative to the Lake Michigan coast. Most homes along the Spring Lake shoreline are equipped with docks big enough to allow boats big and small, and lifts for small boats can also be installed in most locations.
Spring Lake homeowners are also within easy reach of the bigger West Michigan locales, with the shopping, dining, and entertainment options in Grand Rapids just an easy drive away. Nearby, Grand Haven and Muskegon are full of great attractions as well.
Summer events, such as Grand Haven’s Coast Guard Festival and Muskegon’s many music festivals, are mixed with art fairs, farmer’s markets, and “taste of’s” giving residents and visitors plenty to see and do.
Although summer is a great time to live in West Michigan, winter has its attractions too. With Muskegon’s new Winter Sports Complex within easy reach Spring Lake residents have access to sledding, hockey, cross country skiing, and even a luge track.
Hidden right in the middle of West Michigan’s beautiful coast, Spring Lake is a true gem with access to some of the best the area has to offer.
