This B&B is ideally located in Holland....away from the "downtown" but close enough to drive a few miles or bike on the amazing paved bike paths. Lake Mac is very close along with an amazing restaurant, "The Piper", overlooking the lake (the outside of the Piper isn't impressive but the food is amazing - upper class for sure!).
This Inn allows for peaceful activities as well as being as "busy" in the Holland area as you would like to be - for example: seeing the area as a tourist and all it has to offer!
I visited this Inn as a "retreat" away from the hustle and bustle of life and it provided the serene, peaceful atmosphere I was looking for. Liz (the innkeeper) makes a very quiet, relaxed, and peaceful home with many areas to read, rest, and be "alone" or with others, as desired. She is friendly and the kind of person you feel instantly comfortable with! She makes amazing breakfasts also, which is important to a "foodie" like myself! She knows the area and can give information on restaurants, attractions, history, etc. There is plenty to see and do at Lake Mac as well as Lake Michigan from this location - whether you take a hike out to the lighthouse or sit on a quiet dock near either lake to read as the sun sets.
The private beach on Lake Michigan, less than 5 miles from her home, is a must see! The views from the dune overlooking the lake are as good as any further north point in Michigan. I used the beach for reading and solitude and was blessed to have the whole lakeshore basically to myself!
My husband and I have travelled all over the world and always stay in B&Bs. We enjoy good food as well. I would have to say staying here is in the top 5 of any we have stayed at - including a clean, beautiful Inn, great food, location, and comfort! This is a winner and perfect choice. You will NOT be disappointed!
