Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: This property is owned by Mark Kolas and Johannah Dillon. Mark is a local builder, and built Turkey Hollow in 2003. Johannah owns Renaissance, a boutique in downtown South Haven. Mark and Johannah live about a mile from Turkey Hollow in South Haven with their four dogs.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
We chose to build here because of the beauty and uniqueness of the property. We have always enjoyed vacationing at the lodges in several of our National Parks, and designed Turkey Hollow to create a similar experience. It is within easy walking distance of Lake Michigan beaches, within biking distance of downtown South Haven, yet is surrounded by woods and wildlife. A perfect vacation getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Short walk to public beach, a bike ride from downtown, and privacy and nature when you want it. New this year is a nature / exercise trail on the property.
