About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


Relax and enjoy the serenity of the woods behind you and the lake in front of you. This warm, inviting cottage just yearns for a family to come and enjoy its amenities. Step inside this adorable cedar cottage and leave your cares behind.

Step on to the front porch and feel the Lake Macatawa breeze waft over you as you watch the boats glide by in the summer. [Lake access is just down the block.]

Curl up with a book on the sofa in the sunroom and enjoy the privacy of the back yard while you drink in the sunshine or listen to the rain falling softly around you. Whatever the season, this cottage will be a welcome respite from the rest of the world!

A full side yard allows for space for the children to play or a picnic for the whole family. What could be better?

Note: If you need more space for your guests (up to 6), add Listing #100316 (only 2 cottages away) to your rental.

Very nice and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean, and comfortable with a great location - close to the beach and a nice quiet neighborhood. Nice sun room off the master bedroom and the front deck is fabulous for entertaining. Easy access to bike paths nearby for biking and running. A very nice getaway for the family!

Just a Crate and Barrel "like" atmosphere..easy to find once you know where marina is located

  • 5 of 5

Had great communications with Chris the owner. We were there for my daughter's wedding.Had plenty of space to invite 12 friends over, the nite b4 for a cocktail. Had my mom with us (94 years born in France still quite ambulatory ) and she also loved it. Neighbors seemed very very nice,even if all sorts if cars were pulling in driveway and parking on street on both Friday and Saturday. Marina was 1/2 block away and Holland and Tunnel park only several miles away. Had everything you could imagine..although I should have brought a laptop since I still don't know how to print off my phone or tablet. Understandably dogs are not allowed and my 120 lb baby is depressed this I am wondering if something could have been worked out like a additional security deposit specific to destruction etc due to pets,and after 20 years working with numerous rescue groups I know what some unsupervised animals are capable of..just a thought.Overall we all give "Cottage in the Woods" 100%.

Charming cottage across the street from Lake Macatawa

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderfully kept 3 bedroom cottage in Holland. It is convenient to shopping, restaurants, and most important, Holland State Park. The kitchen is well stocked; however, the appliances could use updating. Wi-Fi is available, but we kept getting disconnected. Communication with owner was difficult, but we had a great weekend in spite of this. I would recommend this cottage.

Comfortable and lovely home!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house, very quiet and spacious has everything you need. Clean and comfortable. Mattresses in good shape! Very much enjoyed staying here. However my suggestion would be to change the wording of the accommodations as it does not sleep 8 comfortably. The description says that it sleeps 6-8 with (1) king (2) queens and (2) twins and a crib. We were expecting beds for our adult children (5'10-6''3 ) and there was a child size bed in one of the bedrooms and a trundle bed in the basement which is very low and steep and is very musty. Might be great for small children but not adults. My 6'3 son slept on the sofa. Other than that knowing what the accommodations are I would definitely stay here again and/or recommend.

A wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at "the cottage in the woods" so much and will hopefully go back again one day! We are a family of four, and this cottage had plenty of space for us. We have older kids, so the floorplan was perfect for us. (there are stairs up to two of the bedrooms.. The master bedroom is on the first floor). The cottage is even more spacious than the photos show. We loved how this cottage is decorated and stocked with everything!! And we enjoyed having coffee and breakfast on the front patio as well as in the beautiful sunroom some mornings. The description is correct, we enjoyed the lake breeze since this house is basically across the street from the lake. Our kids enjoyed riding bikes on the quiet road the cottage is on, and we were able to use the nearby bike paths easily too. We drove to get to the beach, but it's not very far. We loved the location of this cottage so much!! We would try to bring a child's size bike on our next trip because the bikes provided are all adult bikes. And, we would recommend some repairs to the bikes. But, everything else was wonderful!!! Thanks for the great family memories!!!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Cottage in the Woods and it was another wonderful experience! The place was so clean and had anything we could have needed! Loved the location of the swing so we could see the lake. We will definitely stay here again!
