About Owner/Property Manager

Blaine Newhouse We are a family of 6 who enjoy living in Holland Michigan - especially beautiful Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan. We delight in hearing stories of how much people enjoy our home and the peaceful setting.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this House in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Park

We purchased our home because of it's location on Lake Macatawa in close proximity to Lake Michigan. We were also attracted to the peaceful neighborhood with lots of mature oak trees as well as the double lot offering lots of space for recreation and privacy. The homes character, ample size and history were also something we found attractive.

What makes this House unique

We love the fact that Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan are available to us. We also enjoy the space of two lots - very uncommon in Lake front living. The fact that the home was both a classic cottage with knotty pine and field stone fireplace AND newly expanded and updated was a huge plus for us. The home has lot of character. We especially enjoy exercise - so walks to the Holland Pier or riding our bikes along Lake Shore Drive is something we often do. We were also looking for a water front home with a sandy beach and sandy lake bottom. This together with the gentle slope of the lake allows for kids of all ages to play in the water with far less parental concern.

                                                          Great Place to Stay

                                                          Mackenzie G.

                                                          Our team has stayed at 375 Big Bay twice and loved it both times! It has been a great place for us to get away from the office and spend time together. The view is great, the house is beautiful, and the location is calming. We would highly recommend staying here!

                                                          Excellent rental for our family including one person using a walker!

                                                          We had a lovely time at this property. Our family included one of our parents who was using a walker at the time. The house was a easy to get around on the first floor with the walker. The first floor living spaces, kitchen and master bedroom were all spacious and had gorgeous views of the lake. It was an absolutely perfect rental for all of us. This home is in a great location to town and the beaches. I would highly recommend this rental and would consider coming back again. Thanks Blaine!
