Special location in charming historic community. Very well equipped home with 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, large outdoor patio with grill, beach wagons, towels, toys, etc. Clean, comfortable, and we strive to exceed all expectations. 15 min to downtown Holland.
Located in Holland, Michigan on a quiet street in the historic Ottawa beach community. Ideal for two to three families (6 adults plus kids or 8-10 adults) for a memorable vacation. The house is a very short walk away from some of the best vacationing Holland has to offer, summer, winter or whatever the season.
The beach house is literally next door to Holland State Park and the Mt. Pisgah Sand Dunes with beautiful Lake Michigan beaches less than a 10 minute walk away. Making family memories here is easy.
With Holland State Park and its sugar sand Lake Michigan beaches a short walk away, there’s never a hassle parking, paying, or waiting in lines.
Simply pack the two over-sized beach wagons with your kids, gear, cooler, Bluetooth speaker (all gear provided, except for kids!) and stroll the boardwalk to the Lake Michigan neighborhood association beach. Use the map below to get a bird’s eye view of just how close the beach, and other local amenities, are to where you will be staying.
And if walking 10 minutes to Lake Michigan is too far, Lake Macatawa is less than 5 minutes outside your door, with several fishing piers, boardwalks to stroll along, and a beach with stand-up paddle board rentals. There are also miles and miles of bike paths and local spots to rent your own kayaks, bikes, stand-up paddle boards, motor boats, and jet skis nearby.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day the historic Ottawa Beach General Store is a 2 min walk away for groceries, drinks, ice-cream and supplies. Dune Dogs hot dog and ice cream stand is also a 2 minute walk, and Ottawa Beach Inn restaurant and pizza is a 5 min walk. If you pick-up (or have groceries delivered via Shipt) it’s easy not to have to get in your car for days!
When you do want to get out and explore, picturesque Downtown Holland with all of its great shopping, dining, and sightseeing is a 15 minute drive away. Grand Haven and Saugatuck are around 30 minutes, and Grand Rapids around 45 minutes.
