Why Kathy Bright chose Holland
Growing up in this area, I always knew that there was something very unique about this historical community. The 'Big Red' lighthouse as well as the historical Holland Harbor where the Lake Macatawa waterway feeds into Lake Michigan- all sites to behold!
What makes this Cottage unique
Macatawa is situated only 10 minutes from the Dutch city of Holland and 10 minutes from Saugatuck (the 'Art Coast of West Michigan'), a 3 hour drive from Chicago or Detroit- all very convenient. However, nothing surpasses the views captured from King's Cottage and the surrounding area, it is indeed breathtaking!! The miles of white sandy beaches against the Lake Michigan backdrop~ need I say more?
This home accommodates up to 7-8.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Lovely fall weekend
We enjoyed staying here. The views are wonderful, beach proximity is great, and the drive to the Fall Festival was beautiful. We're definitely coming back!
Perfect location for boat watching. Well equipped for overall comfort. Near enough to Holland, MI, to have dinner and exercise classes. A great trip for us. I’m sure we will want to return.
Nice house, great location/view, good price!
My overall experience of this place was great. The sunrise over Lake Macatawa was beautiful and the location to the beach was easy. Kathy was very friendly and responsive. Other than some minor issues with spiders and the upstairs bathroom door sticking I didn’t have any other concerns and these were so minor that I would rent here again without question.
FYI: There are a couple tip for those who are staying.
1: There are a lot of 2 plug outlets so adapters would be beneficial.
2: If security stops you, such as walking to the lighthouse, make sure to tell them where you are staying. The second night security made it sound like we were trespassing until they realized we were guests.
3: Fishing can only be done on the pier and channel, they don‘t post signs anywhere telling you no.
Such a beautiful part of the country and this place is located in the perfect spot.
Wonderful View of Lake Macatawa
We enjoyed our stay at King's Cottage very much. The best thing about the cottage was the amazing view of the lake. We all preferred to watch the lake while relaxing in the many chairs. Thanks so much for a great stay!
We had a great weekend
This place is in the best location! We brought our boat and my husband had no problem finding a slip to rent for the weekend, right in the harbor.
