There are a lot of waterfront towns up and down the coast of Michigan with reputations as great vacation getaways or summer home locations. Places along the Michigan lakeshore such as South Haven, Holland, and Grand Haven draw big crowds, but they are not the only beautiful places on the Lake Michigan coast.
Located just north of Grand Haven and fed by the Grand River, the body of water known as Spring Lake covers just over 1000 acres. With an average depth of 18 feet and a maximum of 40 feet, Spring Lake has a large boating community – especially since much of its 25 miles of coastline presents beautiful locations for building sites and features many gorgeous waterfront luxury homes.
Spring Lake is also a typical small waterfront Michigan town, with sandy beaches and water access to Lake Michigan whether you keep a boat behind your home or in one of the marinas in Grand Haven.
With a year-round population of about 2000, the town of Spring Lake is small but includes several shopping and dining areas. If Spring Lake itself doesn’t have something you need, it’s close proximity to Grand Haven provides more than enough opportunities for entertainment, dining, and shopping.
Spring Lake and the Lake Michigan waterfront are also an easy drive from Grand Rapids for those looking for a bigger city feel. In just 30 minutes, the larger venues like Devos Place and Van Andel Arena attract world-class acts in every genre from classic rock to acts like Cirque Du Soleil.
With waterfront homes available around the perimeter of Spring Lake itself, or inland on acreage in the surrounding forested areas, and perched on the Michigan beachfront along N. Shore Dr, the town of Spring Lake has something for every home buyer.
