Property description

A pretty cottage nestled in a beautiful oak grove in the historic Chippewa Shores area. This home has all modern amenities, a glimpse of Lake Mac and is just .8 miles from Holland State Park. Miles of fantastic bike paths are accessible just up the street. Three bedrooms and two full baths, including a big Jacuzzi bathtub perfect for relaxing after a day enjoying the attractions of western Michigan. A shaded deck for enjoying morning coffee or evening breezes from the lake. A large lawn for Bocce or Whiffle ball.
Sleeps 7, with an additional 2 on a fold out couch. There is also another large couch for naps.

This cottage is a perfect getaway spot for a weekend, or a great home away for a family vacation. Nicely decorated, with vintage knotty pine in the living area. Hardwood floors in the living and dining area, with carpet in all bedrooms. Kitchen and bath recently upgraded with new appliances and fixtures.

This home is fully equipped for vacation fun:
Full kitchen, including microwave, range and oven, coffeemaker, toaster oven, new dishwasher and new fridge. All utensils, including dishware, flatware, pots and pans, kitchen towels, etc. A small kitchen table for breakfast or morning coffee by the sunny window. A new charcoal grill for hot dogs or gourmet grilling.

3 bedrooms, with all linens included.
Bedroom 1 has a new Queen bed and bunk beds (and cable TV). Bedroom 2 has a Queen size bed.
Bedroom 3 has a single bed.
There is one fold out couch, with linens. There are also some sleeping bags for unexpected guests, or for kids who want to 'camp out' together in the living room.

2 bathrooms, with linens included. One bathroom has a large bathtub with Jacuzzi jets, perfect for cleaning off the kids after a day at the beach. The other bathroom has a shower.

The house has a large living room/dining room space that can accommodate 8 people easily, without bringing out the folding chairs. The space is large enough so that everyone can find a comfortable corner for reading or catching up on email (No!), without crowding. Cable TV in the living room. WiFi enabled.

The dining area has a dining table that seats 6, and can be combined with the kitchen table for a big dinner party.

The cottage has lots of windows that can be opened to enjoy the sounds and smells of the sandy forest, and the lake breezes keep the house pretty cool. But, if the weather warms up, there are three window air conditioners installed that cool the place nicely.

This cottage is perfectly located to serve as a home base for all the summer fun you and your family might plan. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful, perfect for evening walks down to the wetlands at the point, where you can see Red-winged Blackbirds, Herons, Purple Martins, Ducks and the occasional Loon. Sunset over Lake Macatawa is a treat.

Less than a mile away is the gorgeous Holland State Beach. You can easily walk or ride a bike down to the park for the day, and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in Michigan.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: As kids growing up in Detroit and Chicago, we always wished for a summer place. On our tenth wedding anniversary, though we now live in Los Angeles, we decided to give ourselves, and our kids, the summer place we always wanted. We spent many summers in this house, which served as a summer anchor for our far-flung families. Each summer the house was filled with our family, along with grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, and long-missed friends. Each year we'd tell our relatives when we would be at the cottage, and invite all to visit. Even with all the scheduling conflicts and summer commitments every busy family had, somehow everyone found a way to come by, if just for a weekend. This cottage has been a joy to our family for the past decade. Now that our kids are older, they are much busier, and we can't get away for the whole summer anymore. We will still visit our summer home in early August, but in the meantime, we thought we'd let others enjoy it the way we have.
