Holland house description
This beachfront cottage is the absolute best in the Lake Macatawa area. From the spacious deck, it’s just three steps to the beautiful beach of Lake Michigan. Lake Macatawa is only a couple of hundred yards on the other side.
The cottage is located in a private, gated enclave of luxurious homes. It has four bedrooms, and sleeps ten. It has been recently remodeled and is extremely well equipped for your enjoyment.
If you bring a boat, docking is available on Lake Macatawa (at an additional charge)
Macatawa Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan is possibly the most picturesque of all places on the "Big Lake". Picture this: a National Landmark Red Lighthouse, beaches that rival the best that Florida has to offer, a gated community on a small peninsula, Lake Macatawa behind the cottages no more than 200 yards away. The Victorian cottages that dot this shore line, the cool breezes off the Lake keeping temperatures always pleasant, even on the hottest of August days make this location the perfect get away place.
L.Frank Baum, the author of the Wizard of Oz knew of this spot one hundred years ago. The "Dorothy" from his book was named for one of the little girls there.
From the deck, it’s entertaining to watch ocean going freighters that travel once or twice a day past the light house, through the channel and then four miles further East docking at the town of Holland.
The village of Sagutuck is eight miles South. It’s filled with special shops and restaurants. The Town of Holland itself is unusually quaint and was judged to be the second most friendly community in America.
The Dutch settled Western Michigan in the 1800's........it is fun to watch how some of their different attitudes remain to this day. The Amway owners spend their summers there as do many from St. Louis, Detroit, Indianapolis, Chicago (two hours by car away), Grand Rapids and even from places in Pennsylvania, Texas and beyond.

My sibs, their mates, my husband and I spent a wonderful weekend together at this home on Lake Michigan. We drove 20 minutes from our home in Hamilton and felt like we were truly away from home in the best scenic area in the world. My sister is from Jenison, my brothers from St. Louis and Memphis and we loved meeting on the lake. The only factor that would hinder us from returning is the lack of a bedroom on the first floor. We found the home to be well-furnished with all the basics that we needed. The room in the basement provided a spot for my brother to work a bit since he is not retired. We appreciated internet access for our computers and ipads. We appreciated having a quality tv to watch all the "important" sports that were on this weekend. I think we appreciated the view most of all with easy access to the beach and Big Red coming in a close second. The owner was extremely personable and helpful; I would recommend this property to friends and family and what could beat staying in Holland, MI?

My large family and I have found a different house to rent in the area for the past ten years. This year we stumbled on this rental on vrbo. After staying here, everyone in the family agreed... We can never stay anywhere else. It truly is the best possible location. Our kids played on the private beach sun up till sun down and I could cook in the kitchen and keep an eye on them on the beach at the same time. Each night we sat on the deck and watched the sunset over the beautiful lake. Our private beach was never crowded. At night, I drifted to sleep listening to the waves crash to shore. We found the house to be in great shape, very clean, with everything we needed. The owner was very helpful and even left us written directions to grocery stores/shopping/blueberry picking/dune rides/etc. My brother in law was thankful for the fast Internet so he could do work and my nieces appreciated the cable :) we already made a reservation for next year, and the property seems to book up very quickly, so grab it when you can.

Our family found this property to be the absolute best! It was immaculate and very comfortably decorated. The owner was extremely helpful and went over-and-above with any questions and/or requests we made. The beach was amazing! It was the perfect home to celebrate with our family. I cannot think of anything negative about this rental and it lives up to the name of "best rental cottage." Thank you again for a lovely stay!
