Tazelaar Cottage



SLEEPS: 8 (10 max)
*LAKEFRONT (Lake Macatawa)


It does not get much better than this in Macatawa! This 2-story home directly faces the Marina on Macatawa Lake, so boat gawkers beware and backs up to a forest/dune setting. Tazelaar Cottage is a completely renovated home, hosting 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a lovely garden area for you to sit back and unwind. Sleeping 8-10 guests, Tazelaar is big enough for 2 families to enjoy. Walk down ¼ mile to the sandy beach on Lake Michigan, nearby walking trails, or the Big Red Lighthouse!

The propane grill, fire pit, 2 decks (one wood, one cement) and ample amount of outdoor seating makes entertaining in this home a joy. Tazelaar Cottage comes with a washer/dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, central air conditioning, and gorgeous views. On top of it all, guests get to park directly next to the cottage, which is unique in Macatawa. With Holland, Saugatuck, and Grand Haven only a few miles from the home, enjoying activities in both the summer and winter are easy!
