Holland house description
Welcome to Snug Harbor! This is a roomy, 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath cottage home. It is quietly situated in Macatawa Park. Snug Harbor cottage is a leisurely 5 minute walk thru the historic park to Lake Michigan and Big Red Lighthouse.
This vacation home was totally renovated and completed in June, 2012. Enter the enclosed front porch, a great place for you to relax and play games on warm summer evenings. You will see the open concept kitchen/dining area/living room through the front door, along with a half bath, and the original 112 year old open stairway. The master bedroom, with a queen bed, is on the main floor with your own private bathroom. Upstairs are two more queen (plus single bed) bedrooms, plus a sleeping porch as well; perfect for your kids or yourselves on a warm summer evening. There is also a roomy bath on this upper floor. Downstairs is a 4th queen (plus single bed) bedroom, a large family room (with a full fold-out couch) with an additional space for the kids to play or just hang out. There is another roomy bath on this level as well. The laundry room is also located on this floor. You will stay cool in the central a/c. There is a pack-n-play and booster with tray available for your young ones upon request.
Have a large group, or love cottaging with family and friends, but need your own space? Right next door to Snug Harbor is Green Leaf, another (sleeps 6-8 - vrbo listing #399200) family-owned vacation home for those special people to rent during the same week!! Both vacation homes are pictured in one of the photos.
There is room in the shaded yard for your kids to run and play. There is a deck out back with a gas grill perfect for grilling that fresh lake-caught fish or steak. Just bring your own food - the kitchen will be all set for you to move right in. Linens and towels are also provided - just bring your own beach towels. Cable and wifi are provided for you. Sorry, no pets or smoking at Snug Harbor. Parking is available for 2 cars at cottage.
There's loads of fun awaiting all of you. Charter a boat for some big lake fishing, boogie board on the Lake Michigan waves, or fish off the pier. You can toss a football in the clean water, or just relax at the beautiful sandy beach. Lake Michigan sunsets are a stunning sight. Step onto one of the many paths 150 feet from the cottage for a relaxed walk or bike ride in any direction. The Piper Restaurant is a short two minute walk for your special vacation dining experience. There are other eateries, a great grocery store, etc., along scenic South Shore Drive and beyond.
Holland has lots to offer the vacationer - miles and miles of hiking and biking paths, golf, the friendly Farmer's Market held on Wednesday and Saturday, a quaint and historic downtown for relaxed shopping, and casual and fine dining. Concerts at Kollen Park in summertime make for great family fun. Nearby Saugatuck (15 minute drive south) and Grand Haven (30 minutes north) are also fun shopping destinations along Lake Michigan.

Very livable space for a group with kids; it has a large open area downstairs for them to hang out and you do not feel like you are on top of one another. Perfect if you will be using the yacht club, because its close enough for kids to dash back if they have forgotten something. The kitchen is new and well stocked and thoughtfully outfitted with spice staples that are ridiculous to buy when you are out of town. Bathrooms are also new. Everything is spotless. Grill provided and it works nicely. Owners really want you to have a good time and provide plenty of local information. You can walk to dinner at Pipers, which is a lovely restaurant with everything from good pizza to outstanding seafood and steaks. Try the pear martini. While its not on the beach, there is a path within sight of the front door that will lead you there, or you can head around the other way. Macatawa is a very wonderful spot and you should be close to the beach if you can. Sunsets are amazing.

We so enjoyed our stay at Snug Harbor. There were 14 of us at one point during the week and we did not feel crowded at all. Don and Jane are wonderful owners, and the house is rich with history. We loved that it was a short walk to the beach and some amazing sunsets. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The house was very clean when we checked in, and the owners put a lot of time and money into the renovation. It is apparent in all the fixtures and amenities. I would certainly recommend renting from the Rosies, and we look forward to a return visit to Snug Harbor in 2014.

Family and friends stayed here for two weeks summer 2012. We had 5 adults and 6 kids and had plenty of beds and beautiful baths to accommodate our large group. The kitchen and back porch were amazing places to cook and enjoy our meals. The beach at Macatawa is amazing! We felt totally comfortable riding bikes, playing volleyball, flying kites and swimming in beautiful Lake Michigan. This cottage is the perfect blend of style and charm from its history with modern conveniences like AC and luxury showers and towels! Owners are gems too!

We went to Holland Michigan in July, and stayed at Snug Harbor. This was the best experience we have ever had with renting a vacation home. The house was beautiful and well maintain. It had every thing you could think of. The owners Jane and Don, went out of their way to make sure we felt at home and were well taken care. They provided information on activities in the area, even tried to personalize to the things we like to do. We had 3 adults and 4 children, everyone had their own space and we were able to spread out. We can not say enough postive things about this house and the owners! I would recommend Snug Harbor, or any other property these owners have listed. Thank you Jane and Don!

About the owner: I lived in this house for the first ten years of my life. Part of the living room was once an enclosed porch that was used as the post office for Macatawa. My grandmother was the postmaster, and used to operate the post office for the summer cottagers and winter residents right there out of her home. My father was born in one of the upstairs bedrooms. The house was passed down to my father in the late 1940's, and remains in our family. It has beenvacant since my childhood, and was totally renovated - literally from the foundation up - in 2012. We tried to keep some of the original touches in the house, even as decorator pieces, for your enjoyment, though all the comforts of home are there. We wanted to invite others to experience the great location and idyllic setting I did as a kid. It was a wonderful experience growing up in Macatawa Park. I have great memories of my childhood there. It remains very much the same as when I grew up in the 1950's.
