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 Southwest Michigan

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.

My family and I just spent the last week at Turkey Hollow. There were 7 adults and 1 10 year old. The property is stunning. You feel like you are miles away from everything, but in reality just a few blocks to lake MI. It was just the right size so everyone could have their quiet place. We loved that the wildlife would come to visit for their corn treats. 🐿🰽🰿. Another huge plus for us was we could bring our 1 year old pup along for the trip🐶𝨺️ A true gem. Thank you Mark👍𣐼􎿻

The perfect cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Turkey Hollow three different times, twice in the summer with our adult kids and grandson and once with friends from Indiana. I hesitate to share what a great place this is because I know that it will become more difficult to book when people find out what a treasure it is. We stayed in July 2014 and 2015 and it was a perfect summer retreat. The screened in porch is where we spent much of our time enjoying the woods full of birds and other animals. The walk to the beach is great exercise, about three blocks. My 86 year old mom loved feeding the deer and seeing them each morning in the woods behind the cottage. We also stayed a snowy weekend in November 2015 with friends from out of state and it was beautiful. The cottage is clean and has everything you could possibly need for a weekend in with friends. Mark anticipates every need and is so pleasant to work with. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I look forward to spending more time there in the future.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with two other couples, wanted spend a weekend in South Haven, where we could ride the Kal-Haven, enjoy some wine tasting, shop, and just relax. Turkey Hollow provided the perfect location and accommodations for our trip. The house is clean, roomy, and situated in an ideal location. Five minutes from the Kal-Haven, five minutes from downtown South Haven, a short walk/ride to Lake Michigan, but nestled in a wooded area where deer and turkey abound.

The owner, Mark, was very accommodating, and made sure al of wants/needs were met. Could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely choose Turkey Hollow on our next trip to South Haven!

Group of 6 golfers couldn't have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

I was in charge of booking the golf trip this year and we used to stay at the Baymont Inn.... we are never doing that again! Every single guy in the group personally thanked me for booking such an amazing little hideaway! Beautiful home in a great location, took us 3 minutes to get to Captain Lou's on the river. We weren't there for long periods of time but it was more than accommodating for what we needed! We had plenty of room to storytell about the round, have drinks, cook breakfast and much, much more. We didn't need all of the amentities but it was nice to know that if we needed a grill, washing machine, dryer, etc it was there. If you book your stay here you will be more than happy that you did. Owner was very easy to work with! Look forward to next year's trip already!
