Welcome to Green Leaf! This is a comfortable 3-bedroom, 1.5 bath, totally renovated 2-story vacation home with central air, built in 1895. It is quietly situated in Macatawa Park. Green Leaf has views of Lake Macatawa and is a leisurely 5 minute walk thru the historic park to Lake Michigan and Big Red Lighthouse. During the peak summer weeks, late June thru the 3rd week of August, we rent from Saturday to Saturday only.
Green Leaf was completely renovated inside and out in 2010 and will sleep 6-8 people very comfortably. There is a queen bedroom, 2 single beds in the 2nd bedroom, and a double bed in the 3rd - all on the 2nd floor with the full bath. Two more can sleep on the queen sofa sleeper in the living room. A pack-n-play, booster seat and baby gate are available for your use upon request.
The shaded yard is a great place for your kids to run and play. There is a patio area and gas grill for you to prepare that great steak or your fresh lake-caught fish dinner. Just bring your own food - the eat-in kitchen is all set for you to move right in. Linens and towels are included (please provide your own beach towels). Cable tv and wireless internet are provided for you. Sorry, no pets or smoking at Green Leaf. Parking is available for two cars at the cottage.
Have a large group, or love cottaging with family or friends, but need your own space? Right next door to Green Leaf is Snug Harbor (sleeps 11-14 - vrbo listing 399207), another family-owned vacation home for those special people to rent during the same week!! Both vacation homes are pictured together in one of the photos.
There's loads of family fun awaiting all of you. Charter a boat for some big lake fishing or fish off the pier. You can relax at the beautiful private sandy beach or boogie board on the waves. Lake Michigan sunsets are a stunning sight. Step onto one of the many paths 300 feet from the cottage for a relaxed walk or bike ride in any direction. There are eateries, grocery stores, etc., along scenic South Shore Drive.
Holland has lots to offer the vacationer - miles and miles of hiking and biking paths, golf, the friendly Farmer's Market held on Wednesday and Saturday, a quaint and historic downtown for relaxed shopping, and casual and fine dining. Concerts at Kollen Park in summertime make for great family fun. Nearby Saugatuck (15 minute drive south) and Grand Haven (30 minutes north) are also fun shopping destinations.
Green Leaf is also available to rent in the off-season. We offer monthly rental rates from Labor Day thru Memorial Day, with a 3 month minimum rental. Rates are $1,400 per month, with a one month security deposit. Renter is responsible for paying gas, electric, water/sewer, and phone/internet service. Please contact us for more information.
