The house has character

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location. The beach is near by. The landscape provided the right amount of privacy on the porch. There is a nicely shaded grass area in front of the house. (I am not sure if it is privately owned or part of the state beach. Great place for a hammock or some lawn games.)

If we find ourselves vacationing in that area again, this house will be on the top of our list.

Quaint and roomy cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Great old house with lots of charm in a perfect location. We could leave the kids to roam the beach area while my wife and I took the quick drive down to Saugatuck for shopping, etc. Turn key with towels, ample kitchen and dining, and beach gear all at the ready. Overall a great experience.

This cottage is a modern version of the classic Holland Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has plenty of room and then some. We enjoyed the spacious areas with enough room for all the adults and kids to live comfortably for a weeks time. Amenities are updated and play a huge roll in making this cottage a modern version of the classic Holland cottage experience. We came during one of the warmest weeks of the summer and were able to enjoy when we wanted with the whole house AC. Loved our stay and will definitely be back.

The property is in a great location. Having the general store across the street was very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The property was pretty nice. The area was great, and it was clean. Some of the bedrooms/beds need some updating. Additionally, the grill was in rough shape! Good value for the amount of people we had though, and parking was fine.

Perfectly Located and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My entire extended family plus dogs enjoyed this perfectly located house. We fished, swam, went exploring, for ice cream, to the general store, out to eat, and spent plenty of time just watching the kids play in the large front yard. The house was comfortable and filled with all necessary accommodations to make out stay enjoyable. We would highly recommend this awesome rental.
