I cannot stress enough what a wonderful time was had by all at the mansion. The place is appointed beautifully with antiques and curios from the 1920's. We spent the first hour just walking around with our mouths agape. The rooms are large, the bedding sumptuous, and the amenities sublime. We enjoyed this house so much that we opted out of going out on the town either Friday or Saturday night, preferring to stay in and sip cocktails, lounge in the hot tub, and even play hide and seek in its multitude of rooms. While slightly off the beaten path, this place is a hidden gem close to beaches and Saugatuck (12-15 mins). Ideal for groups and gatherings as any event would be incredibly enhanced by its style and character (and don't even get me started on the Speakeasy- unreal!). We had no issues getting our security deposit back and management was very obliging and helpful.

The mansion completely exceeded all of our expectations. The rooms were large, the bedding sumptuous, and the amenities were over the top. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but it's still convenient to get to the beach (12 minute drive) and close to Saugatuck (15 mins). We loved the house so much and that we didn't go out Friday or Saturday night, preferring to stay in and sip cocktails, enjoy the hot tub, and play hide and seek in its multitude of rooms. Beautiful antiques and fun relics from the 1920s decorate the house. The backyard is spacious and perfect for a group gathering. And I won't even get into the fabulousness of the Speakeasy in the lower level- amazing! HIGHLY RECOMMEND !! (PS- No issues getting our security deposit back)

Great 40th bday/Easter weekend family trip

Slightly delayed review...

We booked this beautiful historic home for my husband's 40th bday celebration over Easter weekend. Dana was amazing to work with. Home was a perfect fit for us (2 families of 4 + 3 other couples). Everyone had their own room. Extremely spacious. Amazing pub/bar area downstairs where we spent majority of time. Hot tub, bikes & basketball hoop was enjoyed. We catered in food & had a murder mystery group (1920's theme to go with era of mansion) come in for the bday celebration. Home is located in Holland. Only 1 large TV downstairs, but forced the kids to explore & and disconnect from their gadgets. Didn't have views of the Lake, but was the perfect fit for the group of our size. No problem getting damage deposit back. I'd highly recommend. Thanks Dana!

I have always dreamed of living in a castle like this so to be able to stay for a weekend was amazing. I felt like I had gone back in time to the 1920's or something! We like to take an annual trip with a group of 6 couples and "The Manor" was one of the most fun times we have ever had. We all agreed there is something magical it. We traveled to the area to spend time Christmas shopping, cross country skiing and to experience all the good reviews we had heard about Saugatuck and Holland. Once we got to The Manor we hardly left!! :) The hot tub in the backyard is so peaceful and private. Cocktails in the pub, a comfy screening room with 100's of dvd's to choose from, cozy fireplace, wine cellar, gorgeous kitchen, whew. I never wanted to go back to work! Everything was very clean and the caretaker was very nice attending to all our needs. She even gave us a bottle of wine from the local vineyard. I definitely will recommend to friends and am hoping to arrange my family reunion there next summer. I also recommended it to my niece as a place she might want to have her wedding. I am sure it is beautiful in every season.
Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! I hope you will have a change to visit us again in the future. We'd love to have you back at the manor!

I organized a party of 12 women on a 5 night vacation to the estate. It's a beautiful place with many close attractions. We had a fantastic time enjoying the premise and it's surrounding areas. Unfortunately, when I returned home, I received a note from the property manager noting all the damage which they found was done to the house. This is an old house with many notably delicate and antique items in the home. What I would define as "wear and tear" per the lease, they defined as "broken". Be prepared to lose at least part of your deposit as they file for anything they find.....
Owner's Response: This was the first deposit that we didn’t return in full. We worked as hard as we could to repair things at minimal cost and make claims on the insurance so that we could return all but $200 of her deposit. She is no longer welcome to rent any of our properties and I’ve never had to say that to anyone before. We have had 250 person weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, family reunions and birthday parties and everyone has always been very respectful of the Manor. This group of 12 women did so much damage it was unbelievable. When they left the house, it was littered with smashed beer cans.. we found them on the stairs, in closets. Pills were found scattered throughout the house. The leg was snapped off a pub table, a drawer face was torn off, the handles of the bath tub were smashed, the ceiling of the pub was covered with what looked like an exploded beer and the list goes on… The Manor is definitely not a place to hold an “Animal House” style party. We take great pride in making it a very nice place to stay.
