Perfect Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sunset Cottage was wonderful. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. It is ideally situated between Holland and Saugatuck. We were able to walk to Lake Michigan to go swimming every day. The bathrooms and kitchen were spotless! Nice new towels and plenty of cooking utensils and dishes. I liked the "summery" feel it had. Lots of fans to cool you off in the evening and plenty of lights as well. We recommend visiting!

Well equipped and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home has everything, is wonderfully decorated, very functional and practical, and views of Lake Michigan that make it hard to want to go anywhere else! Very peaceful, the beach is a short jaunt away and is private so it is quiet and not crowded at all - yet you can walk for miles if you would like and one of Lake Michigan's famous lighthouses is just a stones throw down the beach. Great place for convenient biking, tennis, and a marina, and less than 10 minutes to downtown holland or to saugatuck. It really has it all.

Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful. The large deck, fully furnished with tables, chairs and lounges, looks out over Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa. The cottage is very attractive, well beyond the normal one expects. The loft is perfect for children. Ours loved it. The living areas are well decorated and comfortable. The kichen is ideal for extensive cooking. We will return next summer. Nearby Holland has many restaurants and The Piper restaurant is within walking distance. There are many Art Galleries and coffee shops. We find it ideal.

A great week at the Sunset cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned form eight nights in the Sunset cottage and it was everything that we could have asked for. The cottage is absolutely immaculate! The floors, kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms were spotless when we arrived and the kitchen has everything needed for cooking. The downstairs bedrooms are cool and quiet in the evening and the loft sleeps four children comfortably. Macatawa is always beautiful in the summer and staying at Sunset made it that much better this year.

About The Owner

We hope Sunset Cottage will provide years of memories for our family and guests.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why The Owner chose Macatawa

After vacationing in Macatawa, we absolutely fell in love with the community and location. It's not too far from our home, making it a perfect weekend getaway. As soon as you make the turn up the dune you feel like you're in a different world, even though Holland is just ten minutes away. The incredible sugar-sand private beach and amazing views from the deck make Sunset Cottage an ideal escape. Built in 1895, our newly renovated cottage has a historical lake house feel with all the comforts of home.

What makes this cottage unique

Sleep 'til you wake. Enjoy your coffee on the deck as the sun rises over the dunes. Go fishing off the pier (or not). Stroll along the shoreline or hike through the wooded trails. Read a magazine. Have a light lunch. What to do next? Golf? Tennis? Shopping? Relaxing? Take the convenient backpack chairs down to the beach and read a romantic novel. Build a sandcastle. Fly a kite. Play Frisbee or body-surf on a windy day. Dinnertime. Grill. Watch the sunset from your table. Play cards. Check out the moon with the telescope and think about what to do the next day.
