Location

Our cottage is located along Lake Michigan just south of Tunnel Park and about one mile north of Holland State Park. There are many attractions and things to do in the area, including:

1. Holland State Park and 'Big Red' Lighthouse. A 20-minute walk from our beach or a 10-minute drive from our cottage. Enjoy the beach. Ascend Mount Pisgah. Walk the pier. Observe the boats enter and exit the Holland channel. Or just people watch.

2. Holland Tulip Festival (May 2-9, 2015). The 'can't miss' week of spring in the Holland area!

3. Ottawa County Fair. Our cottage is a 10-minute drive from the fairgrounds. The fair is traditionally held the third full week of July.

4. Dutch Village . Only a 15-minute drive from our cottage.

5. Windmill Island Gardens . Located near downtown Holland, only a 15-minute drive from our cottage.

6. Holland Aquatic Center. 15-minute drive to an indoor public pool with water slide, splash pad, and other activities. Perfect for those rainy beach days.

8. Captain Sundae. The most popular place for an ice cream treat!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1966

About the owner: My dad built this cottage in 1966 as a weekend getaway for our family. It is an integral part of the De Vries family fabric. I enjoyed spending all summer on the beach in my formative years. My dad passed away in 1999 and the cottage is my inheritance. I am married with four small children. We keep two or three weeks for ourselves every summer and rent out the rest in order to help us pay the expensive property taxes that come with our desirable location. I am confident that you will enjoy the beach as much as I did and still do with my family.

Why the Owner Chose Holland, MI, USA:
Our cottage does not have its own private beachfront, but is positioned perfectly between beachfront homes on the east side of the street so that we can see Lake Michigan from our place. Our cottage is a 60-second walk to steps that will take you to sandy beaches. Get the benefits of having a beachfront cottage without having to pay beachfront prices! We are located approximately one mile north of Holland State Park and the iconic Big Red lighthouse for which Holland is known. The Idlewood Beach subdivision in which our cottage is located is immediately south of Tunnel Park and its enormous sand dunes and play area. Our renters return almost every year, a testament to our cottage, location, and Lake Michigan--a beautiful place to make lasting summer memories.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is located in the charming private Idlewood Beach subdivision, with access to Lake Michigan beaches from three different locations. The slow-speed one-way streets are perfect for morning or evening walks, and Idlewood Beach has a central park area with jungle gym for the little ones.
