About Norm Donkersloot

We are two transplants to West Michigan who loved it enough to stay for 30 years. A year ago we found a cottage needing a lot of work. We enjoyed the remodeling and the vacation business so much that we bought a second place. Our day jobs are in elementary and graduate education.

Norm Donkersloot purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Norm Donkersloot chose Holland

we both like to bike and we spotted the cottage on a road and trail where we often ride. There is a bike path in the front yard. The cottage is located near the water on a tree lined road.

What makes this cottage unique

Large deck and backyard. Outdoor furniture for the deck, including a table for eating.

Another great week at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year we rented the Cottage and it was very relaxing. The place is clean and well stocked. One feature that id very useful is the shed out back. It has room for bikes and beach chairs and more.

Cozy and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Even though it was snowing during our stay, the cottage was warm and cozy. Exceptionally clean and well stocked and you can tell owners Norm and Anna care about their guests. Pictures show a welcoming back yard and we hope to stay here again during warmer weather to take advantage of this wonderful feature. Please consider this little gem on your next visit to Holland - you won't be sorry.

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable home away from home. We were family members from 3 states meeting and staying at this ideal location for visiting family that lives just down the road from the cottage. I'd highly recommend the cottage and would stay again.
