Return to the glamour & romance of the Roaring 20’s when The Manor was built near the picturesque shores of Lake Macatawa (less than 10 miles from Saugatuck). This one-of-a-kind classic showhome is said to have been sought after by Al Capone as a summer retreat & has been enjoyed for generations by entertainers, socialites and Hollywood celebrities. Located less than a quarter mile from the prestigious South Shore Drive. Access to Lake Michigan beaches, marinas, shopping, restaurants, nature tours and nightlife are all within 10 minutes or less.
This 6000+ square foot designer show home features 5+ bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms; a recently updated gourmet kitchen with marble countertops, Viking commercial stove & Subzero refrigerator as well as a large Butler’s pantry with an additional refrigerator, sink, dishwasher and wet bar. A 1920’s style “Speakeasy” pub and Gentleman's Lounge are concealed in the lower level showcasing a 14’ mahogany bar with a 3 compartment sink, ice machine, additional dishwasher, fireplace, 55” flatscreen, and separate entry with steps that lead outdoors to a SpaTech deluxe hot tub and grilling area. Reception Room with fireplace, Parlor, Library, Tea Room, Wine Room, Exercise Room; Master Bedroom with 13’ ceilings & 2 bathrooms; and a large flagstone terrace are also highlights of the mansion.
We had several families come together at The Manor for a family reunion. Pictures don't do this property justice. Large family gathering places inside and out, roomy well-equipped kitchen and dining areas for eating-in (only need to bring food), spacious bedrooms and baths. We didn't leave the place the entire weekend except for golf. Loaded with nooks and crannies with period pieces. This home goes on and on and on. Our family ranged in age from 9 months to 74 years -- everyone enjoyed the entire weekend of getting away and living in a true mansion atmosphere. Laura was quickly responsive to our questions and requests. Highly recommend The Manor for family and couple gatherings meant for relaxation and just being together.
The Manor is phenomenal enough said.The pictures do not do justice. We spent Father's Day weekend there, we had not stayed together in 40+ years. There was a lot of aggravating and getting on each other's nerves , just like when we were kids that was really nice. There was more than enough room to spread out our age range was from 6 to 80 .Everything was well above our expectations.We would like to thank everyone who helped make our weekend so amazing.The Manor is a beautiful home.
Highly recommended for groups (we had 12 so some had to use blow up mattresses but there is plenty of space). We made great use of the bar/speakeasy downstairs. Ice machine was a big help. The house is in close proximity to Lake Macatawa and we took taxis to play golf and go to dinner in Saugatuck.
Definitely would go back with a big group for a weekend getaway.
The property manager was very attentive and helpful. They keep the house done very well. Clean and in great shape. Awesome outdoor space as well.
I cannot stress enough what a wonderful time was had by all at the mansion. The place is appointed beautifully with antiques and curios from the 1920's. We spent the first hour just walking around with our mouths agape. The rooms are large, the bedding sumptuous, and the amenities sublime. We enjoyed this house so much that we opted out of going out on the town either Friday or Saturday night, preferring to stay in and sip cocktails, lounge in the hot tub, and even play hide and seek in its multitude of rooms. While slightly off the beaten path, this place is a hidden gem close to beaches and Saugatuck (12-15 mins). Ideal for groups and gatherings as any event would be incredibly enhanced by its style and character (and don't even get me started on the Speakeasy- unreal!). We had no issues getting our security deposit back and management was very obliging and helpful.
The mansion completely exceeded all of our expectations. The rooms were large, the bedding sumptuous, and the amenities were over the top. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but it's still convenient to get to the beach (12 minute drive) and close to Saugatuck (15 mins). We loved the house so much and that we didn't go out Friday or Saturday night, preferring to stay in and sip cocktails, enjoy the hot tub, and play hide and seek in its multitude of rooms. Beautiful antiques and fun relics from the 1920s decorate the house. The backyard is spacious and perfect for a group gathering. And I won't even get into the fabulousness of the Speakeasy in the lower level- amazing! HIGHLY RECOMMEND !! (PS- No issues getting our security deposit back)
Slightly delayed review...
We booked this beautiful historic home for my husband's 40th bday celebration over Easter weekend. Dana was amazing to work with. Home was a perfect fit for us (2 families of 4 + 3 other couples). Everyone had their own room. Extremely spacious. Amazing pub/bar area downstairs where we spent majority of time. Hot tub, bikes & basketball hoop was enjoyed. We catered in food & had a murder mystery group (1920's theme to go with era of mansion) come in for the bday celebration. Home is located in Holland. Only 1 large TV downstairs, but forced the kids to explore & and disconnect from their gadgets. Didn't have views of the Lake, but was the perfect fit for the group of our size. No problem getting damage deposit back. I'd highly recommend. Thanks Dana!
Located near the towering white sand dunes on the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa, the area offers world-class beaches, boating, antiquing, golf, live theater, nightclubs, great restaurants, and a huge variety of art galleries and artists.
