Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

This was our first HomeAway experience and it was fantastic! The home was gushing with amenities. The kitchen had every tool a cook could ever need. The appliances were state of the art. There were abundant activities for the family-inside and outside.

We will definitely book this property again.

Huge House in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

You will think you're driving into the middle of nowhere, but the house is only 20-30 minutes to South Haven, Saugatuck, and Holland. Beaches are also a short drive away. Our family's favorite was Oval Beach. The house is huge, with the best equipped kitchen of any house we've ever rented. Absolutely anything you may need is in that kitchen! The fire pit was great for roasting marshmallows. We used the tennis court and basement game room. All ages enjoyed picking blueberries and peaches at the nearby Dutch Farm Market. The owner of the house is very helpful!

Fantastic friend reunion

  • 5 of 5

Great place to have a reunion we cooked dinner for 10-14 people everynight and had plenty of space and the two dishwasher really came in handy.

The different decks gave everyone some space to go off in smaller groups.

We had a great time in the basement playing competitive ping pong, foosball,pool and cards.

The weather was perfect except one rainy day.

At night fire pit was fun to sit around we even made s'mores

The only thing that needs improvement would be downstairs bedroom maybe some shelves or decorations perhaps a dehumidifier.

Mike it was a pleasure to work with you .

Looking forward to next year!

Thank you !

Mini family reunion/getaway - visiting from CO

  • 5 of 5

There were 13 of us staying here including 5 children. It is a beautiful property with plenty of space to hang out together or get some alone time. It was a great location as it was kind of a home base in the middle of other things we wanted to do yet secluded enough that when we wanted to get away from crowds, we could return and do just that. The kids, aging in range from 9-18, loved the activities in the basement (pool, ping pong and foosball). It's obvious the owners are working on renovations and taking good care of this home. Although we were visiting during the shoulder season, the weather was good and we were able to spend evenings on the beautiful patio and get a nice fire going in the fire pit. It's great that it's screened as there are definitely mosquitoes so be prepared for that.

Mike was great! We did have a couple of concerns when we first arrived but he did a nice job of communicating and trying to make things right . Literally, everyone we met in this area was friendly and helpful. Overall, a great trip!
