About the property

Two charming towns, one great location!

Welcome to Heavener Hill, your nature filled relaxation destination.

At Heavener Hill your vacation can be as fun filled or as relaxing as you wish. We are centrally located between Holland and Saugatuck offering both charming towns within a few minutes’ drive, including shopping, beaches, restaurants, bars, go karts, dunes rides, and much more. The house is located in Lake Town Township. A very quaint area that includes 7 local parks that allow splendid nature walks, play areas, catch and release fishing, Frisbee golf, and much more. About a quarter of a mile down the road is the spacious bike path that leads to Saugatuck or Holland, depending on which way you head. The path is great for family bike rides, walks and running.

At Heavener Hill you have privacy on 10 acres that include a generous yard for room to play those memory making games of football, ladder ball or corn hole (which are waiting for you during your stay) and some great woods for your peaceful walks or your little explorers. For those nights of roasting marshmallows or a couple drinks around the fire, please enjoy our fire pit. No worries, we have plenty of wood for your time with us.

We commonly see humming birds, bluebirds, squirrels, chipmunks, but will also turkey, deer, fox, hawks, and the occasional bald eagle. There is plenty of outside parking as well.

The upstairs bedrooms consists of 1 queen, 1 full, bunk beds with a pull out trundle. There is also a queen pull out, full pull out and futon.

About Diana Heavener-Robertson

Heavener Hill is located at 6362 142nd Avenue Holland MI 49423.​ Heavener Hill was brought to the public in 2013 but was brought to life many years ago. My name is Diana Heavener-Robertson. I am a lifetime resident of the area. In fact, Heavener Hill is my childhood home. Approximately 125 years ago Heavener Hill was the home of Swedish immigrants that started a turkey farm. When those immigrants pass away, their son sold the property in 1968 to Dennis and Jan Heavener, my parents. My childhood, many family and friends gatherings, and great memories were all part of this property. I married my husband Kent Robertson in 2002. Our first son Eli was born in 2005 and our second son Aden was born in 2007. My mother, Jan, passed in 2005 and my father, Dennis, in 2013. I just could not see selling this home and beautiful property. I wanted to see other families to be able to make great memories here also. With the help of my uncle, husband, and sons, we bring to you Heavener Hill.

Diana Heavener-Robertson purchased this house in 2013

Clean, very nice updated basement, and plenty of space for our group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults, 2 kids and 1 infant thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Heavener Hill is a beautiful property and just far enough away for some privacy without being far from our weekend wedding activities in Holland. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to be comfortable. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen gathered around the table. We took a walk on the property and enjoyed the woods. The farm fresh eggs and cookies were a real treat!

My apologies for forgetting to move the rocking chair back into the living room. It worked like a charm to rock the baby in the night and was an oversight to not move it back. Thank you!

Three families with young children

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent. The property provided spacious living arrangements with a perfect mix of room options, pullout couches, bunk beds, etc. There are enough bathrooms to easily provide space for each family. They had firewood provided, a convenient location to two dune spots, and TV's for those that want their sports, etc. We are scheduling another trip to the same house in the summer! Diana quickly returned our full deposit even though we accidentally dropped a hot pan on a kitchen rug - I've never had reasonableness like that happen when dealing with other property owners. That + fresh eggs + cookies = a return customer! 5 stars for overall expectations and affordability.

Surprisingly spacious, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at this property. The house is in good shape, more than big enough for our 7 person group. Just a few minutes' drive from Saugatuck and Holland make it ideal for a relaxing home base for our weekend small-town shopping and beer tourism.

This place was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Heavener Hill. We have never stayed at a rental place with so many personal touches. We enjoyed the fresh farm eggs and chocolate chip cookies. It was so well stocked in the kitchen as well as in the new addition. The new addition is beautiful. We enjoyed the fire pit and making S'mores. Holland and Saugatuck are fun little areas to go within a short drive.

The owners were available and very helpful.

Overall we had a great week. I would recommend Heavener Hill to anyone.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

As we drove up to the property, we were loving the big yard surrounded by woods. We also had to read the book prepared for us by Diana to figure out what the patch of poles and strings were all about. They grow hops! The house is much nicer than the pictures led us to believe. It was pristine and very well supplied with everything we needed and then some. The beds were very comfy with fresh linens. There's a lot of room if you have a large group. This is a beautiful place, and the homemade chocolate chip cookies and free-range eggs that you are welcomed with are the epitome of hospitality. Loved it and I'm telling everyone I know about it. It should be even better next year as they are adding a full basement!

Thanks so much Diana, we loved our stay!
