About the property

Two charming towns, one great location!

Welcome to Heavener Hill, your nature filled relaxation destination.

At Heavener Hill your vacation can be as fun filled or as relaxing as you wish. We are centrally located between Holland and Saugatuck offering both charming towns within a few minutes’ drive, including shopping, beaches, restaurants, bars, go karts, dunes rides, and much more. The house is located in Lake Town Township. A very quaint area that includes 7 local parks that allow splendid nature walks, play areas, catch and release fishing, Frisbee golf, and much more. About a quarter of a mile down the road is the spacious bike path that leads to Saugatuck or Holland, depending on which way you head. The path is great for family bike rides, walks and running.

At Heavener Hill you have privacy on 10 acres that include a generous yard for room to play those memory making games of football, ladder ball or corn hole (which are waiting for you during your stay) and some great woods for your peaceful walks or your little explorers. For those nights of roasting marshmallows or a couple drinks around the fire, please enjoy our fire pit. No worries, we have plenty of wood for your time with us. While enjoying the outdoor seating area, you may spy some great nature. We commonly see humming birds, bluebirds, squirrels, chipmunks, but will also turkey, deer, fox, hawks, and the occasional bald eagle. There is plenty of outside parking as well.

In 2017, we lifted the 1890 house and added a lower level. It was an amazing process and we hope you enjoy it. It includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, and kitchenette with microwave and dishwasher. Heavener Hill has 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The upstairs bedrooms consists of 1 queen, 1 full, bunk beds with a pull out trundle. There is also a queen pull out, full pull out and futon. In the lower level, we have 2 queen bedrooms and a queen pull out. The baths include tub/shower combo upstairs, shower with bench downstairs and a tub/shower combo downstairs. All the towels and linens are provided. All you need to bring is a beach towel. We have all the amenities you will need for an amazing get away, especially with our fully equipped kitchen, outdoor eating area, large yard, and memories waiting to be made.

About Diana Heavener-Robertson

Heavener Hill is located at 6362 142nd Avenue Holland MI 49423.​ Heavener Hill was brought to the public in 2013 but was brought to life many years ago. My name is Diana Heavener-Robertson. I am a lifetime resident of the area. In fact, Heavener Hill is my childhood home. Approximately 125 years ago Heavener Hill was the home of Swedish immigrants that started a turkey farm. When those immigrants pass away, their son sold the property in 1968 to Dennis and Jan Heavener, my parents. My childhood, many family and friends gatherings, and great memories were all part of this property. I married my husband Kent Robertson in 2002. Our first son Eli was born in 2005 and our second son Aden was born in 2007. My mother, Jan, passed in 2005 and my father, Dennis, in 2013. I just could not see selling this home and beautiful property. I wanted to see other families to be able to make great memories here also. With the help of my uncle, husband, and sons, we bring to you Heavener Hill.

Diana Heavener-Robertson purchased this house in 2013

beautiful home & property

  • 5 of 5

THANKS so much for letting us use your comfortable & beautiful home!! Everythng was perfect & homey right down to cookies on the table & fresh eggs in the fridge!! & a few things we forgot were there as well so THANK YOU for having such a greatly equipped home!! Which is in such a quiet pretty setting surrounded by trees with the beach right down the road which we enjoyed seeing the sunsets then up early to see the moonsets over the lake...breathtakingly beautiful!!!

We did a girls weekend & loved being out by the fire in the yard but because it was windy & cold we spent a lot of time talking around the wonderful big table in the kitchen... the house is perfect for relaxing in your own space or being together in the kitchen..living room or nice basement!! Its a whole other home in itself down there with lots of natural light .... perfect for a few families vacationing together!!! ( or nine of your favorite ladies :) )

although it was windy & freezing out that weekend we still ventured out to Holland to the little dutch village that is soo cute; stopped to see the tulips but because of the cold there were only a few kinds bloomed but the ones that were up & open were beautiful!!

THANKS again for allowing us the pleasure of staying in your cozy comfy home & wander around your pretty paths & property!!!

Wonderful Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at Heavener Hill for a weekend in April. We came to Holland for the Rend Collective Concert on Friday evening and were looking forward to a nice "Intro to spring get away". We were excited to hike on the property and explore parks in the area. Unfortunately, Michigan weather had other ideas and threw us an ice storm instead! BUT... I'm happy to report that the house was GREAT!!! We had plenty of room for the 12 of us to be inside the whole weekend. We enjoyed our time - even though we couldn't be outside. We plan to return in the future.

Great Christmas House

  • 5 of 5

We rented Diana's home for our annual Christmas get together. It was a great spot that accommodated our group of 10. The property is quite nice and we got to celebrate in a white Christmas. Diana was very responsive and accommodating, even setting up their Christmas tree for us!

Be aware though given it's location internet/WiFi can't handle streaming. Bring your favorite DVD's! Even with that, we would stay again.

Clean, very nice updated basement, and plenty of space for our group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults, 2 kids and 1 infant thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Heavener Hill is a beautiful property and just far enough away for some privacy without being far from our weekend wedding activities in Holland. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to be comfortable. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen gathered around the table. We took a walk on the property and enjoyed the woods. The farm fresh eggs and cookies were a real treat!

My apologies for forgetting to move the rocking chair back into the living room. It worked like a charm to rock the baby in the night and was an oversight to not move it back. Thank you!

Three families with young children

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent. The property provided spacious living arrangements with a perfect mix of room options, pullout couches, bunk beds, etc. There are enough bathrooms to easily provide space for each family. They had firewood provided, a convenient location to two dune spots, and TV's for those that want their sports, etc. We are scheduling another trip to the same house in the summer! Diana quickly returned our full deposit even though we accidentally dropped a hot pan on a kitchen rug - I've never had reasonableness like that happen when dealing with other property owners. That + fresh eggs + cookies = a return customer! 5 stars for overall expectations and affordability.

Surprisingly spacious, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at this property. The house is in good shape, more than big enough for our 7 person group. Just a few minutes' drive from Saugatuck and Holland make it ideal for a relaxing home base for our weekend small-town shopping and beer tourism.
