Great family get-away
Loved the area, Liked the house
Nice place. Great decor and as advertised. Wooded area.
There is a walk to the beach down a significant incline. Just recovering from knee surgery, it was a bit of an issue for me, but manageable. Just so you are aware.
Great property and location. We enjoyed a nice family vacation here. Short walk to the beach. Very enjoyable. Kids had a great time in the bunk beds and their room. Thumbs up!
We had such a nice time in Macatawa/Holland! Weather was interesting--beach days and fire pit days! Beach was super -- dogs had a blast. Great food, shopping, and fishing! We already miss being there!
Thanks so much for the kind words! We're sure hoping you'll be back for another visit ( maybe with better weather!)
The house was very nice and was in a great location. There was plenty of space for the 14 of us.
My only complaints.....
1. It would be nice if there was a table to eat at. There were card tables available to be put up, but an actual table would be a great addition to the home.
2. I am thankful that my family brought the majority of the pots/pans that we needed. The few that we did need to use were terribly dirty and greasy. We definitely had to wash them before we could use them.
3. In the years that my family has been using VRBO, we have never had an owner/manager stop at the home. In the directions, you need to fill out a form when you arrive at the home and then someone stops by the home to pick the form up. The form left for us had already been used. The manager was notified and stated that she would stop by the next morning. My family left to get dinner and she had stopped at the house and left a new form on the counter when we were not there. I am not sure if this was just to ensure that we were not partying in the house due to it being New Year's Weekend or what, but we did not appreciate it. Especially because we had never experienced anything like this before. This is the main reason we would not stay at another house through them.
The house was definitely nice though. Don't get me wrong, the manager was very nice/friendly. We personally just didn't care for the drop in, regardless if we were there or not.
Hello- It sounds as tho you, overall, enjoyed your recent stay and all the wonderful features at Owls Perch Cottage!
In response to your additional comments;
Tho we appreciate your suggestions regarding a dining table, we have opted against it in favor of keeping the spacious feel of the home and with 5 indoor barstools, 3 outdoor tables & 12 + chairs, it has proven to be more than satisfactory for the majority of our guests. This cottage is primarily used for the peak season timeframe when outdoor seating is critical. This information is also displayed on the listing photos.
Regarding the form and ‘drop by’- this too is clear in the cottage information sent to every guest. Since you needed a new form we thought it best to deliver it sooner, than later and at the same time offer a personal welcome and answer any questions you may have.
It’s not unusual for some guests to have questions about ‘how to light the fireplace, how to operate the remote/tv’s, how to work the grill’ etc.
We try to answer these questions upfront, so as not to disturb you later — ultimately giving you a better experience!
Had we been made aware of the less than clean pots/pans - (which we do apologize for) we could have also addressed that at the same time.
Thank you very much,
Excellent, will visit again!
We loved our stay at the Owl's Perch. The home is nestled in the woods at a hilltop between two wonderful lakes. Everything was clean, and kitchen was roomy and had everything we could have possibly wanted to cook our meals. We had 3 families there, and each party had their own level for "after hours". We had two toddlers and an infant, so they could be separated from the main room activities for sleeping. We took a Little Tykes picnic table for the kids to use, never missed having a kitchen table. My kids are already making plans to do it again next year!
We’re so pleased you all had a great stay at Owls Perch!
Hopefully you enjoyed time at the nearby beach as well- always beautiful!
We look forward to seeing you next year~~
Situated in a unique, private, gated peninsula between 2 lakes; Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa. Spectacular white sandy beach on Lake Michigan, unforgettable sunsets, access to Big Red Lighthouse, and Holland South Pier and Channel. Walk for miles on the lake shore WITH your dog!
