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. There is a small yard behind the cottage, which overlooks the marina and Lake Macatawa, just a quick trip to Lake Michigan.
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!

Deborah, we are so happy that you enjoyed staying at Tazelaar Cottage. Now that it's warming up, the boats are starting to come into the marina, so boat and people watching from the cottage is great! Lake Mac is wonderful and the short walk to Lake Michigan is a joy. Hopefully you got out to see Big Red - the pride of Holland. Holland and Sagatuck are both great towns to explore. We'd love to work with you again in the near future.
Autum, thank you for this wonderful review! Returning guests are the best ever. Tazelaar Cottage is a very special place, both inside and out. As the boats start coming into the marina, people and boat viewing becomes an event by itself, plus you have Lake Michigan and a private beach a short walk away. We'll be looking for you for your 3rd stay!

Cynthia, how perfect to be at Tazelaar Cottage to watch Michigan State in the final four of March Madness! We are so happy that you returned. It is a great property with the marina views and access to Lake Michigan (and Big Redd!!). We're hoping that visit #3 is in your new future!
Jennifer, thank you for this great review. Tazelaar Cottage is a gem for certain. No matter the season, that short walk to Lake Michigan beaches is magical, and the lighthouse Big Red is a classic.
