What people have to say

  • What can we say? The "Owls perch" was more than we could have hoped for!!! walk 1 block to the beach to watch the sunset every day over the lake. While it was 90-100 degrees in Chicago we didn't even have the air conditioning on! The lake breezes were wonderful on top of the hill! The accommodations were outstanding. We had 3 couples, for a week each couple had their own space, actually their own floor with their own bathrooms!! The place was absolutely spotless everything was brand new and it seems as though no expense was spared in the remodel. We were as comfortable there as we were at home. Granite counters, stainless steel appliances, huge deck with brand new gas grill. We didn't want to leave!! Never knew how beautiful Holland Michigan was. Great place our only regret was that we didn't book it for two or three weeks instead of just one!!!! We will definitely be back next time longer!!!
