About Cedar Gables Cottage, LLC Brent and Christine MacDonald

We love the North Holland Lakeshore, truly a slice of paradise. This cottage is our way of sharing the beauty with you and helping you enjoy your family vacation in this wonderful place we call home. We know how important your time is and how important family time is. This is our way of helping you enjoy it together.

Cedar Gables Cottage, LLC Brent and Christine MacDonald purchased this house in 2012

Why Cedar Gables Cottage, LLC Brent and Christine MacDonald chose West Central

We purchased this home because we love this area so much! This cottage in nestled in a quiet family neighborhood, perfect for quiet relaxation - which is what vacation is for! We feel we are away from it all, the busy streets, crowds, etc. Yet you still feel so connected to the outside world and the modern conveniences. Holland is a wonderful family friendly place. Our downtown is a wonderful place to shop, you are very close to miles and miles of bike paths and of course the beach offers hours of family fun.

What makes this house unique

Where do I start! The miles and miles of bike paths, the many beautiful hiking trails all along the lakeshore, all within a few miles. Many awesome family owned restaurants with excellent meals. Our downtown, a wonderful bustling place to shop with many great stores and a very unique outdoor fireplace. And of course the quietness when you return home for the night, with a jacuzzi tub waiting. Not to mention the close proximity to so many public beaches, the wonderful sunsets and the hours of fun available in the Lake Michigan waves!

A beautiful home, and a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Cedar Gables. My husband and I brought our three children (7,4,&2) for a 5 night trip to Holland. We were all comfortable and happy during our stay. My oldest cried when it was time to leave. She said it was the best house she's ever seen. This house was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Perfect for a family looking to enjoy all Holland has to offer!

Lovely, quiet, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Spent Labor Day weekend here with my kids and granddaughter. Had a wonderful time. The house is very clean, comfortable, well equipped. Close to Lake Michigan and a short drive to town. Holland is a great little college town. We enjoyed Saturday afternoon watching a football game at Hope College and had dinner at the New Holland Brewery (good food & drinks). Great area for running and biking (they provide the bikes). In a nice, quiet neighborhood. We look forward to visiting again. Thanks, Brent & Christine!

Beautifully furnished home

  • 5 of 5

Pleasantly surprised upon arrival to see modern updates, fully stocked kitchenware and beautifully furnished. We were close to the beaches and especially loved the quiet beach at Kouw Park. Owner provides bicycles, grill and fire pit which were nice. Highly Recommend.
