About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Only 2 1/2 hours from Chicago... Willow House has been completely renovated in 2009 with hardwood flooring, stainless kitchen appliances, and lots of windows. 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.

Great Home in Holland, MI

  • 5 of 5

This home was as great as the pictures showed it. Everything that was needed (and more) was there. It was a great place for me and my sisters and family to enjoy a long weekend. It was just a short bike ride to the beautiful Holland State Park beach.
