The Village is a small, friendly community located just minutes from Grand Haven, Holland, Muskegon and Grand Rapids. The Village is actually on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by Spring Lake and the Grand River. There are many public access points to the water including a municipal boat launch, canoe and kayak launches, a sandy beach with restrooms and a life guard, and fishing platforms. The soon to be built Grand River Greenway will add more canoe and kayak launch points, more fishing opportunities and wildlife viewing stations in the wetlands and along the river. The Village offers a wealth of shops and services including 15 restaurants, shops offering everything from ATV's and hardware to fine wines and art galleries, and many services such as doctor and dentist offices, salons and spas, and automotive service establishments.
