THE HOUSE:

You will find that this property offers every amenity one could desire from a vacation rental, and much more. On the rental market since 2009, this gorgeous 4,000 square foot house was tastefully re-decorated with an eclectic blend of antiques and modern furniture. The house features hardwood floors throughout the home, central A/C, and dimmers on almost every light switch. An entertainer's dream, ALLEGAN ACRES boasts 2 wood-burning fireplaces, a library with marble surround faux fireplace & filled with books, stereo system with speakers throughout the interior & exterior of the home and wireless or cable i-pod/smart phone connection, high speed wireless internet, DISH satellite TV, and 2 TV's with DVD's & DVR's, including 1 large flat screen in the great room/living room. You will find the finished basement to be a gaming paradise which features a pool & ping pong table, game table, stereo speakers, TV, and bar. Careful attention has been paid to every detail to anticipate your basic needs and decadent desires. Even sanitized Crocs are provided for your enjoyment and make it convenient when using the outdoor hot tub - especially in the winter.

THE OUTDOOR SPACE:

On the nearly 3-acre, beautifully landscaped property, you can choose from taking a dip in the large in-ground concrete heated swimming pool, soaking in the six-person hot tub (open year-round), lounging around the pool deck, grilling out on our gas grill (propane provided) and dining al fresco under the pergola - all within the complete privacy of the 6-foot cedar fence. There are plenty of pool chairs, rafts, noodles and both traditional and 'zero-gravity' pool loungers. Beyond the fence, an additional acre of trees and lawn includes a large gravel fire pit with adirondack chairs for bonfires, a hammock, and plenty of space for lawn games. The selection of lawn games we provide ebbs & flows depending on availability and which games our guests tend to leave behind after their stay, so we encourage you to bring any games you feel passionate about and you are welcome to leave any behind for others to enjoy.

Just OK

  • 2 of 5

Our stay was just OK

It was low 90's when we arrived and would have been nice to have the A/C going so we could have slept that night. The upstairs never got cool even with the 2nd unit going dedicated to the 2nd floor. The place had an "old home" smell to it and not cleaned very well. The kitchen floor looked liked it gets swept but never really cleaned. White socks got black from walking around inside. The house was nice and big and fortunately some of our family were not able to make it since one of the main bedrooms is just kids bunk beds and pullout sofas are horrible. The"5th bedroom" is in the basement and is unfinished. Nobody wanted to use it. Never used the game room and bar downstairs either since it was rundown and un-inviting. Never used the hot tub since it had sand on the bottom and burned from the overuse of chemicals. Sitting around the pool was a big plus to relax at night or early morning coffee. Decor was nice and the master bedroom was the best part of the home with a super comfy bed and view of pool area. Maria, the caretaker of the home was very nice and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are constantly updating and making improvements to the property, and our guests' feedback is helpful in this regard. In response to previous feedback, we recently added a new furnace to the upstairs to provide additional cooling which so far has been met with nothing but positive reviews. I have done my best to provide up-to-date photos and a very detailed description of the entire house, including the bedrooms, beds, and sleeper sofas, and we encourage our guests to read this carefully to make sure our property is a good fit. Currently, the sleeper sofas have standard queen coil sleeper mattresses, but we are looking into upgrading these to a higher grade memory foam - stay tuned! I'm so glad that you found Maria, our housekeeper, to be nice and helpful. I also provide Maria with feedback regarding our guests' experience, which has been overwhelmingly favorable over the years. Maria strives to keep the house and hot tub clean and sanitized at all times, and we are glad that you enjoyed the outdoor pool area. I want to thank you, as well as all of our other many previous guests, for taking the time to write a review and share your experience with us, so that we can ensure that we continue to offer a property that we take pride in, and that is worthy of nothing but 5-star reviews!

Beautiful, Private Home

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with Allegan Acres! The home was even nicer inside than I expected.

Favorite parts:

- the gorgeous and private backyard

- great hot tub

- plentiful towels and good quality sheets

- impressive stock of food staples and kitchen supplies

- wonderful location - you can walk to town or a short drive to the larger area attractions

If I could recommend any changes, it would be to replace the windows as about half would not open.

I would absolutely come back!

Owner's Response: It's so nice to receive positive feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay! Most repairs and updating need to be scheduled in the "off-season" and I've already scheduled repairs, maintenance and indoor window pane re-painting for later this fall, so windows will be looking and working nicely very soon. We hope you come back soon to see the improvements!

Beautiful Private Property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with three generations of my family and were amazed at how private it is on all sides. The main level master with a walk-out to the patio level was perfect for my parents. The backyard was beautifully landscaped and had so many seating areas! We had an issue with the hot tub, but it was quickly resolved by the housekeeper. The pool provided lots of entertainment for the kids and we all loved the firepit which had about 10 chairs positioned around it. The owner provided TONS of towels for the pool and for indoors as well as a washer and dryer with detergent which came in handy. There were also lots of lawn and pool toys provided.

There are very small. low-cost improvements that would make future stays at this home even better. One is to update the shades in the rooms. The master bedroom one was really ripped and not functioning well, so it remained closed despite the beautiful view out the windows. We rarely spent time in basement because it wasn't very homey and we couldn't get the jukebox to work. A flatscreen tv down there would have been nice instead of the small tube tv.

The town of Fennville is very cute and has several great places to eat, like Roots Cafe and Crane's. We loved that it was a quick car ride to Saugatuck, Holland, and Lake Michigan. If you stay here, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Allegan Acres was everything we hoped it would be! The house was perfect for our family of 15 and the pool was a great place for us to enjoy the afternoons and evenings. It's location was ideal, giving us close proximity to both South Haven and Saugatauk/Douglas. We had a great week & highly recommend!
