About The Owner

This property is owned by Mark Kolas and Johannah Dillon. Mark is a local builder, and built Turkey Hollow in 2003. Johannah owns Renaissance, a boutique in downtown South Haven. Mark and Johannah live about a mile from Turkey Hollow in South Haven with their four dogs.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose South Haven

We chose to build here because of the beauty and uniqueness of the property. We have always enjoyed vacationing at the lodges in several of our National Parks, and designed Turkey Hollow to create a similar experience. It is within easy walking distance of Lake Michigan beaches, within biking distance of downtown South Haven, yet is surrounded by woods and wildlife. A perfect vacation getaway.

What makes this house unique

Short walk to public beach, a bike ride from downtown, and privacy and nature when you want it. New this year is a nature / exercise trail on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, let me begin by saying WOW! Turkey Hollow is a beautiful, comfortable, warm-feeling home nestled in a relaxing, tranquil setting. It far exceeded our expectations. Our desire to have privacy in a secluded location while still being able to easily access the lake and town was wonderfully met by Turkey Hollow.



The decor and details of your property are so well thought out and really adds to the charm and peaceful feel of the home. A standard of excellence is obvious. The screened porch is absolutely delightful! We spent nearly all of our time when we were 'home' on that porch.........from morning coffee to late-night conversations.



My husband and I would like to thank you for your reliable communication and for being so accommodating. We are grateful to have spent our anniversary in such a breathtaking location. Priceless.

The house is wonderful: cozy and impeccably clean; and reasonably priced as wel. We rented it two times already and we are planning to come back. The house is nicely furnished, the bedrooms and the bathrooms are very spacious. This is not like typical house for rent, it's very homey and inviting there and the owners keep it in excellent condition. It is very close to the lake and surrounded by woods, perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, BEST VACATION GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

Turkey Hollow is a wonderful home away from home. It is the best choice out of all the houses in South Haven by far! It has an excellent location just steps away from the beach! What I loved the most about the house was that it is surrounded by beautiful woods which gives it a very private and secluded feel, just what we were looking for. We were able to see deer and enjoy the nature trail that is part of the property! The front porch was so comfortable to have a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the variety of birds, and also in the evening to star gaze. Very Romantic!! It was just my husband and I, but there is plenty of room if you were to go with a group of friends or family. We were able to grill each night and enjoy the back porch as well, and just relax while taking in the calmness of the woods that surrounds you. Turkey Hollow is close to the downtown area as well were you can find great ice cream shops and check out the light house. I give Turkey Hollow my highest recommendation! Mark was very helpful, flexible and extremely kind to work with. Thank you for everything!

We really enjoyed our stay at Turkey Hollow. First, Mark was terrific to deal with and has excellent communication/updates. It was very efficient to book, and our security deposit was returned very promptly with a nice thank-you note.

The property is beautiful, tucked away in the forest off a low-traffic side street. There is a nature path that winds through his woods, my kids enjoyed that. We saw a deer with 2 fauns walking through in the mornings. When you are at the house, you are nearly fully secluded in the thick woods due to heavy foilage.

The house was perfect for our group - we fit comfortably, although wouldn't recommend going with much more than we did in terms of sleeping spots.

The large patio with many seats allowed us to host dinners with our other family members staying at other properties in the area. The kitchen was well supplied, the gas grill was a nice Weber and worked perfectly.

Would highly recommend, and I would certainly stay there again.

Beautiful house in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Turkey Hollow with my brother and his family this August. The house is beautiful - wood floors, knotty pine paneling, with lots of space for our party of 9 plus dog. The screened porch almost doubles the living and dining space so even when we had other families over for dinner, there was lots of space for everyone. The house is very secluded, can't even see it from the road, lovely and private, and the surrounding woods were lush and green. The kitchen was very well equipped. Highly recommend it.

beautiful private quiet space

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful cabin, even more so than the pictures suggest. The house is set on the property in such a way to maximize the feeling of privacy despite being in a tourist area. The screened porch is a wonderful feature and a great place to spend time relaxing. The house is appointed very well and has just about everything one could need. There are countless little details that really made this property wonderful. It is obvious from the care in arranging the house that the owner absolutely loves the property and wants you to also. We will certainly be staying again in the future.

A very close walk to beach access, short drive to downtown (or within bicycle range on slower traffic days). I biked the Kal- Haven trail almost daily (including one day all the way to Kalamazoo), access is pretty close if you're used to cycling any significant distance.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

Turkey Hollow was more than I ever expected! Mark was so helpful. When we walked through the door, Mark had music playing and fresh beautiful roses on the kitchen table! The cabin was perfect, couldn't have asked for anything else. My family and I made wonderful memories that we'll cherish forever! I am hoping to come back in the summer. I just can't say enough good things about Turkey Hollow! I really wanted to bring it home w/me.
