About Owner/Property Manager
Blaine Newhouse We are a family of 6 who enjoy living in Holland Michigan - especially beautiful Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan. We delight in hearing stories of how much people enjoy our home and the peaceful setting.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Holland
We purchased our home because of it's location on Lake Macatawa in close proximity to Lake Michigan. We were also attracted to the peaceful neighborhood with lots of mature oak trees as well as the double lot offering lots of space for recreation and privacy. The homes character, ample size and history were also something we found attractive.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan are available to us. We also enjoy the space of two lots - very uncommon in Lake front living. The fact that the home was both a classic cottage with knotty pine and field stone fireplace AND newly expanded and updated was a huge plus for us. The home has lot of character. We especially enjoy exercise - so walks to the Holland Pier or riding our bikes along Lake Shore Drive is something we often do. We were also looking for a water front home with a sandy beach and sandy lake bottom. This together with the gentle slope of the lake allows for kids of all ages to play in the water with far less parental concern.

Very pleasant vacation!
We visited from Arizona Labor Day week. We loved the location and enjoyed the large house and lakefront. We saw plenty of wildlife which was a bit surprising. Plenty of ducks, geese and even deer. A bald eagle enjoyed a large fish right on our beach, twice while we were there. We hope to return again.
Holland Family Vacation 2019!
Our growing family had a blast in Holland! The accommodations were wonderful, the weather was perfect and there was so much to do! Blaine and Kathy were so amazing to work with...we’ve already shared with friends and family that it’s a must do vacation!! So many wonderful family memories were made!
What a beautiful place to enjoy my family for the week! Plenty of room for all 10 to sleep. lovely sandy beach for the kids (ages 5 - 10) to play. Shallow beach so we could all float to our hearts content. Rented a pontoon boat for 2.5 days to enjoy Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan! Kid's loved tubing too! The layout of this home is perfect! When the kids got up they came to the family room off the kitchen and the rest were not disturbed from their sleep! Highly recommend this place for families and friends! Only suggestion would be a second refrigerator in the garage and a gas grill. But we made do no problem! Thank you Blaine and Kathleen for sharing your home with us!
Wonderful House with a Sandy Beach
We absolutely loved staying on lake Macatawa. The house was on a huge lot with beautiful Oak trees with a shady yard and sunny beach. The house was perfect and spotless. The rooms were spacious and the kitchen had everything we needed. We would love to stay here again!
Our 6th Year
This was our 6th vacation at this great home on Lake Macatawa. This home is very comfortable and accommodating for our large extended family to vacation together. That’s why we keep coming back.
Family Get Away

The city has a charming down town with many specialty shops and restaurants. Bike paths are plentiful and make for ease of walking, biking or roller blade.
