 Caviar Dreams: Boat life 
12 guests, 3 bedrooms, 4 bedrooms, 1 bath
$299 per night
You want to be close to the beach? How about floating right on the damn water?! Located in Spring Lake (between Ferrysburg and Grand Haven) this restored 1969 Chris Craft 47’ boat is what vacation dreams are made of. It’s been featured in boating and architectural design magazines — and rightfully so. Though it remains docked at the marina, (which offers two pools and a hot tub) you can likely charter a captain to take to the sea.
