The Space**** Due to City of Holland ordinance, rentals under 30 days are not allowed. We have loved hosting the many unique and wonderful guest individuals, couples and families who have come to experience Holland by living within its heart. To the Hope families, business travelers, beach goers, tulip lovers, writers, young families, honeymooners, anniversary travelers, pub hoppers, girl's getaways, family visitors, dog owners, neighbors' guests, and all other friends of the Cobblestone Cottage, we thank you. It's been a wonderful journey for us all! I hope to someday see a change in ordinance that allows Holland hosts to once again open doors short term to you wonderful travelers! In the meantime, if you have needs for longer stays, please keep in contact and inquire about specific pricing and accommodations we can make for you! We will keep our standards and remain your fully furnished and equipped home away from home or short term Holland home. ********

About the owners: Lifelong Holland residents and high school sweethearts have owned this home together since their marriage in 2002. The home was lovingly (well, mostly lovingly) renovated by this engineer and artist, and welcomed each of their six children in the years to follow! So full of memories and craftsmanship, the home was deemed too precious to sell. When the family moved nearby for the necessary extra bedrooms (and bathroom) (ok, and Lake Michigan views), the Cobblestone Cottage vacation rental was born! The home is surrounded by neighbors known and loved by the family, and your rental allows the family to still roam the streets of their nostalgic first home. Thank you! Guest AccessEntire house and grounds, except garage. If extra storage or garage is needed for longer stays, please inquire and we can work something out! Interaction with GuestsAlways available by phone or Airbnb messaging. Guests check in themselves using keyless entry pad. The NeighborhoodHistoric homes, kind neighbors, walking proximity to waterfront, boardwalk, local restaurants, and downtown. Other Things to NoteLooking for shorter month or so long term vacation stays, not to rent by the year.
