Terrific Cottage for 8!
Awesome Cottage! Lovely personal touches throughout the cottage. Very Welcoming! Clean, well stocked with various items for taking trips to the beach, grilling family meals together, sitting around the bonfire, close/easy rental company for water sports. Close location to Big Red Lighthouse, downtown Holland, Dune rides, shopping. Something for everyone!
another wonderful week at Mac
The property was in excellent condition. All of the necessities plus others were available. We have already decided to go back next year.
It was magical in pure Mag-i-can also known as Michigan
We spent a week here and it was one of the best times we've had. All details were thought of down to the saran wrap in the kitchen. The house is clean, perfect location, walkable to a beautiful private beach on Lake Michigan. We boated in Lake Macatawa (rental place stones throw away), hiked an awesome trail that was walkable from the house, watched breathtakingly beautiful sunsets every night, dinners on the patio in a garden oasis, with S'mores by the firepit. Holland is a great location to stay allowing you to visit neighboring towns of Saugatuck, Douglas, Grand Haven, and an hour 1/2 drive to Silver Lake Dunes. We adventured and relaxed all in one week - it is possible.
Side note: We showed up to a power outage at the house due to storms and the rental company was efficient and immediate with solutions. We were provided flashlights and a generator until the power came back on the following day. While it wasn't the most convenient way to kick off a vacation, their actions made it bearable to hold on until power was restored.
Thank you for taking the time to share your 5 star experience! Our team works very hard to provide excellent service in all situations and we are pleased to know you were able to enjoy your stay amidst inconvenient circumstances.
Tazelaar Cottage is easy to enjoy with its convenient location, beautiful views, and cosy indoor/outdoor spaces. There is something there for everyone to love! Thank you for being an awesome/flexible guest and we look forward to hosting you again soon!
Loved the house! Can’t wait to go back!
Beautiful location to enjoy Holland and Sagatuck Michigan at any time of the year. Such a beautiful view and comfy place to stay.
Deborah, we are so happy that you enjoyed staying at Tazelaar Cottage. Now that it's warming up, the boats are starting to come into the marina, so boat and people watching from the cottage is great! Lake Mac is wonderful and the short walk to Lake Michigan is a joy. Hopefully you got out to see Big Red - the pride of Holland. Holland and Sagatuck are both great towns to explore. We'd love to work with you again in the near future.
We enjoyed the space and cleanliness of Tazelaar Cottage. It was a great space for hanging out inside as the weather wasn’t as cooperative as we had hoped.
Denise, sorry that nature did not cooperate, but we're glad that you enjoyed staying at Tazelaar Cottage. It is a great property, and Holland and surrounding areas are great places to explore. We hope to work with you again soon.
