Overview

About the property

Our Charming Farmhouse is a perfect setting to enjoy time together outdoors!

This is a perfect home to reconnect with family and friends. There is so much room to roam outdoors in this country living lifestyle!

Plenty of activities outside to keep the kids active! Everyone will enjoy using the trampoline, tire swing, basketball hoop and playhouse. Great places to rest for the overworked parents, the hammock, fire pit, enjoy amazing views for miles from the large deck that is like a whole other room with comfy chairs. Even on the hottest days there is usually a pleasant breeze. The chickens will provide some fresh eggs every day for you if you want them! Kids will love the barn cat that comes around in the evenings for some attention. Our bunny is really friendly if the kids want to visit him in his little house outside. Our guests have said this is a high light for the kids!

The fireflies that come out at night make the kids want to be out and enjoy nature. Our farmhouse is a retreat, get out of the city to a place in the country where you can keep the windows open.

The house is a perfect balance of old, reclaimed floors and antique accessories, and new, modern plumbing and appliances, efficient windows, and 2 large flat-screen TV's connected to a satellite dish. The three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms on two levels gives everyone some personal space, while the living room, dining room and kitchen are big enough for all to gather.

We are close to so many great sandy beaches, some with soft lush sand and others for the rock collector. There are cities to explore in every direction, with great food, nightlife, museums, amusement parks, shopping, and even some old fashioned windmills. Enjoy the solitude of being away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close to the beach and go shopping or out to eat with only a short scenic drive to Downtown Saugatuck and Holland.

The house has a great kitchen for cooking and hosting a large group with a huge island that can seat 6 and dining table for 6. The main floor has a half bath, laundry room, great room with a sectional sofa , a master suite with a king size bed and full private bath.

Historical, rustic & beautiful farm house!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our very large family of children, ages 21 to 8 years old, thoroughly enjoyed staying at this lovely farmhouse! The yard was flat and large, with lovely farm fields around it. They enjoyed feeding the chickens, petting the bunny, jumping on the trampoline and playing basketball! Our favorite evening was when we built a campfire in the fire pit and ate Smores. We have been to Michigan many times on vacation and this place is by far our favorite!

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't say enough positive things about this farmhouse rental. Extremely well thought out in an idyllic setting. The owners were very communicative and helpful (and nice), and we also really enjoyed the chickens, rabbit and ever-present cat (he ended up in a ton of our trip photos!). We were also centrally located to a number of scenic towns in the area, including Holland, of course. We would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone!

Beautiful farmhouse in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We rented here cause we wanted to be close to Lake Michigan. Holland is a lovely town; the house very close to all kinds of interesting places to see and things to do. The host provided maps and pamphlets to local attractions; very handy. The house is spacious and suited our needs - 2 adults, 3 teenagers... Big island in the kitchen for eating, dining room table for crafts. Lots of storage space for our stuff. No fuss, nothing too fancy to touch, it felt like home! Oh that king size bed! The barn cat welcomed us; the chickens ate our scraps and gave us eggs. The bunny so cute! Beautiful outside, so many fireflies at night! The host attentive but not intrusive. We saw wheat harvesting across the road while we feasted on the local wheat products😉?

Great experience, great rental house! Well done Heidi and David, and thank you

Fun on the Farm for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

Heidi and her family did a great job with the house! We loved the landscaping.

The farmhouse was in great condition when we arrived. The kids (3 boys under 4) loved feeding the chickens and gathering eggs, playing in the treehouse, jumping on the trampoline and giving lots of attention to the cat and bunny who were both SUPER friendly.

The master bed was very comfortable, we liked the open feel that they created in the older farmhouse with the big island in the kitchen.

There are plenty of beds upstairs that are also comfortable, like many two story homes, the upstairs is warmer than the downstairs.

There was always a nice breeze on the property even when it was super hot. We were about 20 mins away from everything we wanted to go to: shopping, beach, food, Meijer etc.

You feel very "unplugged" out on the farm with the pretty views, animals and because you are not able to get wi-fi.

We did have a few days of rain on our trip, but there are lots of games and toys for the kids to do indoors if needed and we planned ahead and brought some movies because we knew the kids wouldn't be able to watch anything on their iPads.

We brought our dog and she loved smelling the farm life :-)

Overall we had a great time and the house felt like home for us!!

Thank you!

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family to gather and the kids to have fun playing outside in the beautifully landscaped grounds, complete with a bunny, chickens and very friendly cat! The owners were most helpful and even left us a bottle of wine and fresh flowers. We loved our stay!!!
