Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got back from a great week at the Atlantic Ocean of the midwest, Lake Michigan. It is a jewel of "flyover" country. With temperate summer waters, white sandy beaches and water as far as the eye can see, it is every bit as good as the ocean. The cottage we stayed in was terrific, here is a short review:

The very short review is that everything about the cottage exceeded expectations. It is newly and delightfully decorated. The proximity is superb--less than 10 minutes for a very pleasant walk to an un-crowded, private beach. The physical location is great, too--in a cute little neighborhood, just north of Lake Macatawa and east of Lake Michigan. The yard is spacious, and there is good privacy on the lovely patio. The cottage is really a recently re-modeled, very-well-kept and well-decorated house. It has everything you would want, including extended cable, wi-fi, laundry, air-conditioning, a gas grill, and a handy outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand. Everything, without exception, was in excellent working order.

The cottage is advertised as sleeping 8, but we asked the owner, Mike, if two families totaling 9 persons would be okay. He candidly replied that the sleeping arrangements would work fine, but we should be aware that there is only one bathroom. We said we could make that work, and it was not a problem at all. As to sleeping, there are 3 spacious bedrooms. Two equipped with double beds, and one with 2 pairs of bunks. So if you, like us, are vacationing with another family, you can turn a good deal into a great deal, by splitting the cost, very easily and very comfortably.. The rooms of the cottage are also very large, so there is plenty of room for 8-9 people, even on an unlucky rainy day.

The greater Holland location was also very good. There are all kinds of stores and restaurants within an easy 10 minutes' drive, if you want them. As for us, we hardly go in the car at all. Kayak rental is a 3-minute walk. Boat rentals on Lake Macatawah are just 1 mile down the road. There was just hardly any reason at all to leave the immediate vicinity. Bottom line--this is a great cottage rental, and at unbeatable price.

Great Location, Value, and Lots of Fun for kids!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this house! We have two kids and couldn't have picked a better location...this house is within walking distance to Holland State Park, and a very short drive to Tunnel Park. Driving Lakeshore Drive to Grand Haven is also a must! The only thing we missed was the General Store being open for ice cream, but that's what we get for visiting in April :) we'll be booking again in the summer months to enjoy that as well! As far as the house goes, you can't go wrong. The kids LOVED "their bedroom", with the bunk bed and double bed. The kitchen is super cool, with a vintage oven and flooring. It was quiet, cozy, and had everything we wanted/needed. Dishwasher, washer, dryer, extra pillows, blankets, etc. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back!

Property just as described, very clean, nicest and largest yard in area. most all neccesities provided. Decent grill, I grill alot and was concerned what I might find, very pleased with unit. Nice neighbors, area is quite at quite time, great for 2 yr old grandson.
The provided wagon was a plus as it is a bit of a walk to get to beach which also is very nice.
Nearby bike paths take you everywhere in area
Hope we can return in future

Stayed here 2 years running now, love the place. There were noticeable improvements to increase the size of the parking area and improvements to the landscaping which obviously shows the owner's interest in maintaining the place. Great location, house is clean and comfortable.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house and we loved Holland. The house was perfect for my husband and I with our 4 and 5 year old boys....plenty of space in the house and a great yard. The house was clean and comfortable. The firepit was well used by us and the outdoor shower was so great for cleaning up after a walk back from the beach. Having the beach, a hot dog stand, and an ice cream shop within walking distance was great for the boys. Holland is a cute city with lots of shops and restaurants downtown. We loved the Thursday night street performers downtown that they have during the summer and the farmers market on Wednesday. This was a perfect family vacation spot!!
