Great property. Great location. Great hosts.

Couldn't be happier with The Boat House. Great location for a day on the lake with a quick drive to restaurants and breweries in Holland. The staff is also very accommodating and quick to reply on lodging inquiries. Would definitely come back!

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed on the boathouse for a few years until we outgrew it! The location is beautiful on Lake Macatawa and a short walk to Lake Michigan. It is very clean and very well maintained. The staff are very responsive and friendly. We miss going to the boathouse for our family vacations, but would highly recommend it to others.
