From the second story deck, partial views of Lake Macatawa add to the panoramic natural beauty of the surroundings. The upper living area includes 2 bedrooms, 2 baths (with the third bedroom and bath downstairs), well-appointed kitchen, and open dining room, complete with wood-burning fireplace. You're only a few yards from Lake Macatawa, only a bike ride from Ottawa Beach, and just a short drive from beautiful downtown Holland, Grand Haven, Saugutuck or beautiful South Haven.

About Steve & Lori DeNeff/Jackie White
Willow House is family owned and operated. One of the reasons we choose to share Willow is, it's a great place to relax, renew and make family memories. We bought Willow House together, so we could begin to create our own family traditions and have a place we love for decades to come. It is our hope and dream, that the generations coming behind us, will treasure Willow House as we do, and be generous in sharing it with others. It's comfortable and open. And the huge deck has become a favorite gathering place for lunches laden with fresh finds at the local farmers market (downtown Holland on Wednesdays & Saturdays) and in the evenings around the firepit. Some of our best stories are shared in that space. And since we want our guests to feel at home, we've tried to make the "cottage" completely turn-key. All you need to bring is your clothes and your favorite vacation foods. And maybe you'll find some of your best stories here too.
Steve & Lori DeNeff/Jackie White purchased this Cottage in 2011

Clean, thought of everything you might need, easy accommodating hosts
Beautiful home close to the beach/ state park and minutes from anything you might need
Perfect for our needs
We stayed as a family of 6 (4 adults, 2 children under 3) and the space was perfect for our needs, especially with the split level. The location was great also, relatively close to Ottawa Beach and a short drive to downtown Holland and other attractions. The property is a little rough around the edges but we found that to be totally fine relative to the price. There were lots of toys in the cupboards to keep the kids entertained.
A week sojourn in Holland , MI
Like every year , we set out to spend our family vacation with our kids and grand kids for a week. Holland , MI was the place of choice and we are so glad we did . We had a blast, particularly the grand kids. We stayed at 1916 Willow St, the house is very well kept and clean. It met all our expectations and beyond. We will strongly recommend this place to others.
This was a wonderful house to stay in we enjoyed it very much. Close to the beach they had so many amenities for us to use we basically had to take our own clothes and the food. Wonderful upgraded kitchen and Dinette we really enjoyed the deck with a fire pit and the gas grill. It was nice having a washer and dryer on site they even supplied beach towels. Would love to stay here again.
Our stay at Willow House
The home was clean and well cared for. There was an ample supply of towels, blankets, dishes, games. The area is beautiful and convenient to everything. We felt very much at home during our stay at Willow House.
