COMMENTS FROM GUEST BOOK:

My wife and I came to this quiet and beautiful cottage very weary and in need of rest. We enjoyed leisurely days of reading, cooking, walking, going into Holland etc. The view from our deck was worth the entire trip. We both believe in a personal God who loves and cares for each of us. We believe that every good and perfect gift comes from him. We have been absolutely blessed by his gift of creation, solitude, time together, and this delightful place of refreshment. Our accommodations were perfect. Thanks and blessings.

My family and I came to this very nice cottage. We loved how nice and quiet it was. We loved how nice the beach access was. The sand was so nice and fine. Thank you for the very comfortable and nice it was to stay here.

Thank you I loved the quiet time. I will always come here again.

Thank you for a lovely week. We could not have had a better time anywhere! The cottage and view was wonderful. We will never forget it. We hope to be here someday soon. The hike and beach access were a true treat! We wish you all much success in the future with your rental.

About Sunita

I am the property owner and my name is Sue. You may reach me at 616-581-7695 with any questions.

Why Sunita chose Holland

Newly remodeled in 2013 with new hardwood floors. Brand new tv with internet access. Blue ray player.

You cannot find a better setting in Holland and near by area on Lake Michigan for this price. View of water from everyone in the cottage. It gives you an absolute private setting with everything so near by. Quick walk to access water and State park one house away. Beautiful hiking trails right from the property. Too many things to list.

What makes this cottage unique

Private setting, views, access to everything near by.

We had a wonderful season that started with a couple celebrating their honeymoon and ended with a couple being engaged and a few anniversary celebrations in between.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second trip to the magical treehouse. Our girls (6 and 2.5 year) are even more attached now and don't want to leave. "Mom I think we should live here". Everything was perfect, again. Owners are very gracious. Can't wait to come back.

Lake Michigan Cottage-truly beautiful, quiet & gorgeous vwithiews

  • 5 of 5

Mary Lou and I truly enjoyed our stay Sunita's gorgeous cottage. The views of the lake and the stunning sunsets were beautiful from both the deck and master bedroom. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable and cozy, and the entire cottage was very clean and beautifully appointed. We both said our stay was perfect, and I'm sure we will return many times.

Great, Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we had a fantastic stay at Sunita's Holland Cottage. The place is a great quiet, retro cottage with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. The easy access to the state park, bike trails and hiking trails was fantastic. The place was very clean, had everything we needed, and Sunita and her property manager were very helpful during our stay. We will definately be going back again soon!

Relaxing and peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the L M Cottage. We had a wonderful time reading, walking the beach, exploring Holland, and just relaxing. The place is well off the beaten path, and we enjoyed the quiet and seclusion. Beach access is easy, and it's a short walk down to Holland State Park and the breakwater for the harbor entrance (with Big Red Lighthouse). We saw some great sunsets! We also drove into Holland for shopping downtown one afternoon. There are a variety of boutiques and restaurants to choose from, and if you're a fan of microbreweries, this is a good place to sample.

We were there a total of 3 nights, and ate out 2 of those nights but prepared our own dinner on one of them. The place is well-appointed with necessities for cooking and preparing food (although the kitchen is small - we knew what to expect and settled on a dinner that was going to be easy to prepare). The beds are comfortable, there is indoor and outdoor seating for relaxing or eating. We initially had trouble connecting to the Wifi (internet) and the owner had to come and reset the router, but after that we were fine for internet searches and checking email.

Overall we had a wonderful time and will be returning in the future!

Wonderful cabin in the trees.

  • 4 of 5

Quite with great views and awesome sunsets. Easy access to water sports (the recommendations in the cabin are bang on), beaches and trails. Don't miss the nitro coffee at the General Store (ice cream too). The Holland Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays is well worth it and one if the best around, well worth the 10 minute drive. Take a day on sit on the deck, enjoy the quite and walk the beach at sunset.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a wonderful find! Not only do you have direct access via a short flight of stairs to Holland State beach, but you have a great view of the lake from the deck. We were there during the very busy 4th of July week but never had to worry about traffic or parking at the beach as we simply walked to the water whenever we wanted to. We also loved the many dirt trails that meander around the area as part of the Mt Pisgah trail system. The general store is close by as well. The cottage itself has super comfortable beds in both rooms, along with wonderful deck loungers that we found perfect for optimal sunset viewing. We used the grill many times and loved eating outside on the deck. Sunita was very helpful in suggesting things to do like where to go blueberry picking, when to hit the downtown area for entertainment and which trails to take for running and walking. This was the perfect cottage for a family of four.
