Property 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 open stairway over 100 years old. 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, booster with tray, and baby gate 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 3 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, privatet sandy beach. Lake Michigan sunsets are a stunning sight. Step onto one of the many paths 200 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.

Owner info

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.
