Feel inspired by Lake Michigan's seemingly endless sugar sand beaches and sparkling waters as you envision your next get-away with friends & family. This custom-designed vacation estate boasts incomparable views of Lake Michigan with vibrant sunsets.

Grab a quick cup of coffee at home or head to one of the many cozy coffee houses in the area; Fuel up for the day with a delicious Dutch breakfast at one of the many brunch spots; spend the day shopping & sightseeing in one of Michigan's best beach towns; Soak up the rays at the beach or by the boat as clear blue water cascades onto the shores; Retire to the backyard for a BBQ Dinner and adjourn to the covered deck to take in the vivid sunset as it dips below the Western horizon at the end of the day.

Holland is known for its annual Tulip Festival, a celebration of the blooming of the flower each May, but it is so much more!  This home, although tucked off the main thoroughfare for privacy, is just a short jaunt from all the Holland & Grand Haven downtown attractions, festivities, shops, grocery stores, restaurants and marinas. 

The view upon pulling into the driveway of this luxury lakefront home will mesmerize you.  Traveling with children? They may want to stop and play a game of basketball on the half-court set up on the driveway. 

Upon arrival, you will be lulled into the beach town life. Drop your bags and head to the path of your own, private 90x20 beach. The beach is easily accessible with private stairs and a beautiful deck overlooking Lake Michigan. Tunnel Park Winds Nest Beach, Holland State Park Beach or Grand Haven City Beach are additional, nearby beach options. Beach chairs, towels, wagon, toys and a cooler is provided.

This open floor plan has been thoughtfully designed & updated with a brand new seawall, beach stairs, deck, hardwood flooring, staircase, furniture, mattresses, fire-pit, & hillside swing-set overlooking Lake Michigan. 

ZZZ’s by the C is ideally situated 1/2 way between downtown Holland & Grand Haven along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Ready to explore the water? First, head down the beach stairs to your own pristine Lake Michigan Beach. Looking to venture out? Check out the Big Red Lighthouse in nearby Lake Macatawa (an all-sports lake) where you can rent or launch your own boat, jet ski or kayak at one of the local marinas.  This lake house & location checks all the boxes for your upscale, yet Midwest vibe, vacation.

Family Vacation
Our family’s 20th straight family vacation was spent at Zzz’s by the C. The house was very spacious and comfortably accommodated all ten members of our family. The house was very well appointed and very clean. The view of Lake Michigan was awesome as was the private beach and the fire pit area to watch the sunset. Zzz’s by the C was without doubt the best house we have rented over the 20 years of family vacations. I would definitely recommend it for other vacation renters.


Wow! Thank you for such a wonderful review, Joe! As a Freshwater return guest for many years now, reading this is just fantastic! We are truly grateful to have been able to provide you and your family a vacation that could exceed expectations! We can't wait to have you back next year!

Zzz's by the C
Absolutely beautiful house right on Lake Michigan with 2 master bedrooms. Everything supplied including bicycles and basketballs. Huge downstairs open room with full bath. Beds were all very comfortable. 2 issues passed on to Freshwater after we arrived. 1. No dresser in one of the master bedrooms and no closet to hang clothes. The other master had 2 dressers so possible someone moved it. 2. There wasn't an easy way to clean your feet when coming in from the beach. We found a bucket. Definitely not a deal breaker. Freshwater was going to send someone out to the house but we declined. Let me say that we were very impressed with all our dealings with Freshwater. Be aware that there are about 60 steps to the water and no fencing protecting the cliff drop-off (typical of all Lake homes). We (3 senior couples) would definitely rent again. 


Thank  you for taking the time to review your stay, Robert. That is definitely odd that there are 2 dressers in the one bedroom, with none in the other, so we will see about getting that resolved, as well as a rug or something to clean off after the beach! We love knowing that you still had a very enjoyable stay, and were able to communicate well with our team during your time with us. We look forward to having you back in the future!

The home is beautiful and well kept with all the essentials. The views and beautiful and the sunsets exquisite. It’s quiet and peaceful. The beach is walkable which is a big bonus. The managers responded quickly to questions. Overall it was a beautiful trip.

ZZZ's by the C, is an adorable house with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Spent each evening at the stair bottom deck watching & listening to the waves. The house was clean and well stocked. The towels and bedding were soft and of good quality. Would definitely stay again.

Jennifer, one can't beat sitting outside listening to the wave of Lake Michigan.  It's pretty magical. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to your return.

Great Lakeside Retreat
Great lakeside retreat for a group of adults. The views and beach are hard to beat. Ample room for guests with comfortable lodging. We were confused why the listing information stating how many people/cars could be at the house changed right before our trip and caused a little stress. AC had a hard time keeping up on a really hot and humid day, but the availability of fans made it much more pleasant. Overall a great stay! 


Hi Ashley, thank you for taking the time to share your review! We do our best to be good neighbors, but truly apologize for any confusion or anxiety felt by the changes in number of cars and occupants. We are delighted to know you were all able to have a great stay and take in the gorgeous views the home provides, even on those hotter days. Hopefully we can host you again!

This was one of the Best vacations my family & I had, it was 16 of us and we had plenty of room. The home was Beautiful, when we got there on Friday 5/27/2022 in the evening I did an inspection of before & after of the home. I noticed bathroom sink was not on and I called office they called Maintenance and they were there 1st thing Saturday 5/28/2022 morning and Mitch the Plumber was there and took care of whatever needed to be done. Everyone was so nice :-)! We plan on coming back again next year and we’re going to check out some more locations Freshwater has to explore as well. Very professional company and I want to Thank my Team Member/ Friend @ work Carmen Gourlay-Martinez for recommending Freshwater Vacation Rental Homes to me :-)! I hope the next person that goes to the Z’s in Holland, Mi enjoy like we did . Thank you again, Diane Cole :-)

Diane, we love hearing that this was one of the best vacations you and your family have had!  That makes our day.  We also appreciate your kind words for FVR's staff.  We look forward for  your return next summer.

Beautiful House & Breathtaking Views
This house is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We really enjoyed the sunsets. The kitchen is really stocked. Bathrooms work well, are big and very clean!! There is plenty of space for everyone.

Carla, we agree, ZZZ is a very special vacation spot.  Nothing beats the views of Lake Michigan and the incredible sunsets.  We hope that you will come back again.

fantastic property
Even on rainy days, this is a great property to be at. The deck is perfect for sitting and listening to the surf. The main sitting room is comfortable and roomy. The esthetics are right on. I'm fussy about beds and these were to die for. Great for snuggling under the comforter on cold nights with the windows open so you can hear the surf. It's the perfect place for large groups. The bathrooms and the entire cottage were pristine. The kitchen is well equipped. And the views are amazing. On a clear night the sunsets would be spectacular, plus it's right on Lake Michigan , so what's not to love. There is new construction next door, but it did not bother me in the least. The WIFI worked fine. Downtown Holland has many great places to eat and excellent shopping. Do not miss De Boers Bakkerij for the best breakfast you will find anywhere. I would come back in a heartbeat, and I give it my highest recommendation. FRESHWATER RESPONSE: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your attention to detail! We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
