A beautiful little city replete with statues, quaint little shops and lots of Dutch heritage to boast of, Holland is also famous for its wooden shoes. The white sandy beaches and the clear blue lake coupled with some great landscapes and lip smacking food, it is a gem of a place and the sights are also are very Instagram-worthy if that’s your thing. All in all, the charm of this city is hard to beat and if you’d prefer close access to the beaches, lakes and breathtaking landscapes, picking out a private accommodation would work better as most hotels are located near downtown Holland. So we’ve whipped up a list of some of the best-rated private accommodations in Holland that are close enough to nature but not far enough from downtown to be inconvenient.

Guest Experience: “We booked 2 nights for our annual girls getaway. The cabin is wonderful – we all slept like babies. All the beds are very comfortable, even the hide-a-bed! The cabin has everything you need –just remember to bring your sheets, bath towel and a couple of kitchen towels and you will be all set. Beautifully landscaped setting on a nice quiet lake. Short drive to Saugatuck. We will be back!” - Lisa, Indiana (Vrbo)

A cabin located near the State Park and the beach, it has two bedrooms, the basic kitchen amenities, a television and DVD player. There is a sitting porch in front of the cabin, a patio at the back and a firepit in the side yard. At this property, guests provide their own linens and towels.
Guest Experience: “Close to the lake and park. It sleeps four comfortably. Would be great for a fishing trip. The fire pit was great to use, for the evenings to sit around and fellowship. Must bring your own wood. It’s in a very nice neighborhood… I felt safety was not an issue. Myself and two other ladies stayed there. I do need to say that if you are looking for something modern this is not the place. With that being said, if you’re looking for a place to stay that has character and charm, I feel this is great for you!” - Margarett H (Vrbo)

The pictures cannot even begin to show you how great this home is…so well maintained and very high quality. We were five minutes driving from the beach and about the same from downtown Holland. There were bikes for us to use (didn’t get to use them with our young kids though), but we could’ve ridden these to the beach. I highly recommend this home and the location!” - Erica (Vrbo)

Holland awaits you!
No time is a bad time to visit the place. Spring is the best because you’re just in time for Holland’s famous Tulip Festival while fall is a great time to enjoy a color tour, go hiking or apple picking. In winter, you can also cross-country ski, go sledding or marvel at Lake Michigan’s icebergs and downtown Holland is a great place to shop even in the winter, with heated sidewalks and an outdoor fireplace to help keep you warm. So pack your bags and head to Holland!
