This is the lower level of our house (12 steps down). My husband, Larry and I live in the upper level. There is plenty of privacy and room to relax with your own spacious living/dining area. There is a separate bedroom with a locked door and a legal egress window. It has a queen bed, a futon with a twin air mattress and bedding on top. The ceilings are low (just shy of 7 feet). We've had some tall people book the space (6'9" was the tallest). But, if you are tall it might be uncomfortable.
Our house is a 2 minute drive (or an easy 10 minute walk) to Tunnel Park and Lake Michigan. We are a 5 minute drive to Holland State Park and 14 minutes to Downtown Holland. There are several excellent restaurants 5-10 minutes from our home. Saugatuck and Grand Haven are about 25 minutes away.
Guests have access to the kitchen, microwave, toaster oven and Coffee/tea service and the patio. Some space can be made in the fridge for your food. Full bath and half bath are shared and on the first level (the half bath is at the top of the stairs to the lower level).
We live here, but are often out and about. When we are here we are happy to chat and make recommendations about restaurants and places to go, but will gladly let you have your privacy
Officially we state that we don't take children, but send us an inquiry and tell us about them. We have had some very well behaved little ones stay here. There is plenty of room for them to play. So, if they travel well, this may be a good place for them. We also have a guest bedroom upstairs that is listed separately. It is By The Lake (minus the word Too). It sleeps two and is directly across from the full bath.
Because it affects my asthma, no perfume or body spray use in the house.
