EVEN BETTER THAN EXPECTED!

  • 5 of 5
We were hoping to have the beautiful house on a lake live up to the pictures on the website, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the grounds and amenities even lovlier than expected! We spent most of our time on the deck reading, but also made it a point to see every sunrise and sunset from that vantage point as well. Kitchen was better equipped than mine at home(!), and extensive CD, movie and game collection were all bonuses. Neighbors were friendly-most were waving to us by the end of day two-and Howard City offered several restaurants and convenient grocery shopping. We enjoyed a concert in the park one night and hit the ice cream stand as well. Side trips to Grand Haven to the Meijer Garden and Grand Haven for the Coast Gusrd festival rounded out the week. There were only two of us, so we didn't even use the entire lower level. We are already looking at calendars to plan a return trip next summer.. Hosts Colin and Helen made everything so easy in terms of arrangements. I have booked many trips over the Internet, some great, some good and some not so good. This one counts among the 'greats'.

LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I traveled to this lovely cottage at the beginning of August. It provided exactly what we were looking for: relaxation and fun things to do as a family. We could not believe how spacious and clean it was. There were so many utensils to use in the kitchen - it's almost like being at home. There was tetherball, croquet, a fishing boat, paddle boat, lifejackets, horseshoes, lots of board games and when we got tired with all those activities during the day, there was a nice selection of DVD's to watch in the evening. The dock was fantastic - our kids caught over 80 fish and the sunsets were absolutely stunning. It's close to many nearby attractions. We visited the Ford Museum, Holland, and Ottawa Beach (to go tubing). We also went mini golfing and ate ice cream. We will definitely be back because we made many memories here!

RELAXING GET-AWAY AT URIKA COVE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time here. The home was beautiful and very well taken care of. It is also very clean and has all the amenities you need! They even provided coffee and laundry detergent which I thought was very nice. We were visiting colleges in the Holland/Grand Rapids area so this was a fairly convenient location. You do have to drive a ways to get to mini-golf or bowling but Howard City does have a nice grocery store. We used their rowboat and pedal boat on the lake but had the best luck fishing right off the dock. Our son & daughter caught some really nice sized bass! The owners were very nice and very helpful. We would recommend this for families of all ages.

URIKA COVE

  • 5 of 5
This place is wonderful for all ages. We had kids from 5 to 13 and not once did we hear "I'm bored" You can swim and fish right out front and being on a cove it's quiet and good for little ones to swim around. If you are as lucky as we were you will always have a fish on your line. Early morning is excellent for the little ones to drop a line and catch the little ones. No worms, no worries the fish bit on anything. The kids also caught a turtle a golf ball and a hot dog stick.(the turtle as well as the fish were all released unharmed). We had resident swans that came over for bread daily and the geese well that's another story but don't worry if you have kids you won't see too much of the geese. Great place very clean and oh so cute, nicely done inside with everything you could ever want. Two fantastic TV's and lots of games and movies incase it rains. You won't be disappointed.
