Just east of Grand Haven and Ferrysburg lies the idyllic community of Spring Lake. This vital, friendly, intimate village is located on a peninsula encompassed on three sides by Spring Lake and the Grand River. It’s a boating and recreational paradise with lots of public access, including many boat, kayak, and canoe launches, sandy beaches, and fishing sites. The village began its growth in 1835 and, like many lakeshore towns, the first sawmill was built in 1845 to engage in the lumber trade. Today, Spring Lake comprises an abundance of shops, services, restaurants, wine stores, art galleries, salons, and spas! There are great residential offerings including single family houses, apartments, and waterfront condominiums.
