Why The Owner chose Ottawa Beach

This cottage was built by the owners, who have enjoyed spending summers on the beaches for generations. Several updates and additions have been made, and there is something so magical about summers spent at Ottawa Beach! The cottage association is a great group of people who become family after the years.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is near shopping, restaurants, and not too far from the 'big city' of Grand Rapids, yet when you're sitting on the front porch reading a good book you feel as if you're a world away from it all. There is a private beach on the shore of Lake Michigan next to Holland State Park, where you can enjoy blissful days in the sun. Kayak, boat and jet ski rentals are nearby for those who don't want to sit.

Love the Blue Roof

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many cottages at Ottawa Beach, and this was one of the best. Clean, neat and modern, it is fully equipped for days on the beach, family gatherings and meals. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. It couldn't be more convenient to the beach, and the owner provided towels and clean sheets. There is an outdoor shower with hot water that makes a return from the beach an experience to look forward to! The owner was friendly and delivered exactly what they promised. I would definitely recommend it.

family good times

  • 5 of 5

Being the third time we stayed here, everything was as expected, Clean and well maintained. Appreciated the new screen door in the kitchen. Also appreciated the parking passes this year. However parking is still a problem with several families and cars. It is good to be here early in the season as parking is probably a larger problem after the Fourth, Otherwise- all good. Loved the outside shower!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reply! I'm glad you enjoyed the week! Next season we will have 3 spots in the parking lot along with the 2 on the hill. If there are additional cars that won't be coming and going all week there are several spots along Ottawa Beach Road that can be used for free for long-term parking. Feel free to ask if you come again! :-)
