About The Owner

This property is owned by Mark Kolas and Johannah Dillon. Mark is a local builder, and built Turkey Hollow in 2003. Johannah owns Renaissance, a boutique in downtown South Haven. Mark and Johannah live about a mile from Turkey Hollow in South Haven with their four dogs.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Southwest Michigan

We chose to build here because of the beauty and uniqueness of the property. We have always enjoyed vacationing at the lodges in several of our National Parks, and designed Turkey Hollow to create a similar experience. It is within easy walking distance of Lake Michigan beaches, within biking distance of downtown South Haven, yet is surrounded by woods and wildlife. A perfect vacation getaway.

What makes this house unique

Short walk to public beach, a bike ride from downtown, and privacy and nature when you want it. New this year is a nature / exercise trail on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, let me begin by saying WOW! Turkey Hollow is a beautiful, comfortable, warm-feeling home nestled in a relaxing, tranquil setting. It far exceeded our expectations. Our desire to have privacy in a secluded location while still being able to easily access the lake and town was wonderfully met by Turkey Hollow.



The decor and details of your property are so well thought out and really adds to the charm and peaceful feel of the home. A standard of excellence is obvious. The screened porch is absolutely delightful! We spent nearly all of our time when we were 'home' on that porch.........from morning coffee to late-night conversations.



My husband and I would like to thank you for your reliable communication and for being so accommodating. We are grateful to have spent our anniversary in such a breathtaking location. Priceless.

Best get-away cabin in South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cabin in a fantastic location! Very private yet close to town. Lots of wildlife on the property. Mark was great providing information and having everything we needed at the cabin. Watching the deer every morning while drinking our coffee was a great way to start the day.

Property was first rate!

  • 5 of 5

This property is first rate. In the middle of the woods so very secluded. And yet only 5-7 minute walk to a public access beach! We loved the "woodsy" feel and the house has a fireplace and wonderful screened in porch that travels the length of the home and where we spent much of our time. I would recommend this house for anyone. 4 nice bedrooms that will sleep 8 comfortably and owner was very accommodating.

Great family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Turkey Hollow. The deer and black squirrels were so much fun to watch in the morning while we had coffee.

The weather was chilly and gray, perfect for a warm fire and playing games with our kids. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend to unplug from the hectic work week, this is the place to go.

Can't wait to come back in the summer! Thanks Mark!

My family and I just spent the last week at Turkey Hollow. There were 7 adults and 1 10 year old. The property is stunning. You feel like you are miles away from everything, but in reality just a few blocks to lake MI. It was just the right size so everyone could have their quiet place. We loved that the wildlife would come to visit for their corn treats. 🐿🰽🰿. Another huge plus for us was we could bring our 1 year old pup along for the trip🐶𝨺️ A true gem. Thank you Mark👍𣐼􎿻
