Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Nelly's Retreat is a wonderful cottage on Macatawa Park’s North Hill with spectacular views of Lake Michigan. Macatawa Park is a charming and historical location and a perfect family destination. You are steps away from a shared beautiful private beach.

This cottage will accommodate six guests. This cottage was built into the side of a dune with a first floor kitchen and storage room that has a washer and dryer. The next level is the living room, full bath, bedroom, sitting room and half bath. On the third level there is a Master bedroom with the best view from your bed, a bath with shower, and a loft area with two twin beds. Linens are provided for your stay.

The cottage has a deck and many wrap around porches to enjoy the many different lake views from sunrise to unbelievable sunsets.

You will have guest privileges at private tennis courts with helpful tennis lessons available at a great price. Boat slips are available at Eldean Marina, a five minute walk from the cottage. The dunes are a great backdrop for long walks on the beach or hikes on nearby trails. Excellent shopping and dining are just a short drive away in downtown Holland or Saugatuck. You'll find galleries, antiques, boutiques, cafes, ice cream shops, bookstores and delicious restaurants. The Farmers Market is held on Wednesday and Saturday in downtown Holland.

About Melissa Nelsen

We are a family of 6 who live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I grew up in Michigan and am happy to return as a 'cottage owner' with beautiful views of Lake Michigan. I have 3 girls and one boy who like to keep busy.

Melissa Nelsen purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Melissa Nelsen chose West Central

When we rented on the north hill in 2008 we had such an enjoyable time and felt the area was so unique we began to keep our eyes open for available real estate. It has the perfect mixture of 'getting away from it all' yet being close to fun spots to dine out and not being completely secluded. We loved the tennis courts and the lessons at a great price our kids could receive. The dunes are a challenge to climb and there are always fun and interesting people to meet from all parts of the world.

What makes this cottage unique

the views from so many spots on this property and the location to the beach

Great House and Location

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice; great location to the beach and lighthouse. The views from the porch and decks were awesome. About a 20 minute drive from downtown Holland and the Holland State Park. The beach was great and not crowded.

Wonderful family escape!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the cottage last July for a week. We loved the location, the views were terrific! We were at the beach everyday, very relaxing and not crowded. The location is wonderful; you can rent bikes and take paddle board lessons nearby. The town of Holland was very inviting. The weekly farmer's market is a "must-visit." Everyone was very friendly. We found many enjoyable restaurants/activites on Trip Advisor near this location. We have recommended this to many friends.
