The Croswell Cabin is an amazing place to come and stay. We have been renting this property since 2008 with overwhelmingly positive reviews. We welcome a variety of groups to come & visit. We have hosted: families, friends, bachelor & bachelorette parties, girls/guys weekends, wedding parties, cross country ski groups, Tulip Time visitors etc..
With our convenient location to the beach, shopping, downtown Holland or Grand Haven, restaurants, hiking & bike trails we have something for everyone!
Please enjoy some reviews that we have received from previous guests:
Just wanted to let you know how much my family loved your cabin. Everything was great and your book of directions to everything was a big help. You own a beautiful piece of paradise. We hope to stay again sometime soon. Thanks again for all your help.
Hi Ellie! There aren't words to express what a fantastic time we had at the cabin last week. We were nervous to take our first vacation with the little kids, but it all worked out perfectly. The cabin is amazing, from the elk greeting us when we walked in (my husband and I are both avid hunters and dream of taking an elk like that one day) to the amazing master suite and beautiful back yard set up, it couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you!
Also, will the cabin be for rent again next summer? Let me know, thanks!
Thank you so much for the awesome vacation at your cabin! It was one of the best vacations our family has ever taken! My only regret is that I forgot to write that in your guest book! Our 2 grandsons pulled us in every direction possible with all the things they wanted to see and do, so when we returned to the cabin each time, the back deck was our retreat. We spent 90% of our time at the cabin on that deck! Absolutely gorgeous! And peaceful! Every morning we had our coffee there and watched the deer,turkeys,squirrels and blue jays. I can`t tell you how much we enjoyed that simple, quiet time! We will definitely be back...we loved it! Do you rent the cabin in the fall, too? I`ll bet it`s beautiful then also!
Thank you once again for the use of your beautiful cabin! I would come back today if I could!
Just dropping a line to let you know that we really enjoyed the use of your
Croswell cabin during our visit to Michigan the past week. It was just the perfect
size for us and it was very nicely decorated (reminded us of an Eddie Bauer
catalog!). Thanks for a great rental.
Thanks a bunch and hope you have a wonderful summer!
Sorry I'm so late to thank you but I want to tell you how wonderful our week was at your cabin. We kept saying: "WOW this place is so NICE. I can't believe it's a rental!" It was so clean.
You must be a professional decorator. It is so cute. My younger son rarely gets back here so this vacation was a real treat to have all of us together. We will always have great memories of your lovely home and our vacation.Thanks and Thanks again.Debbie and John
Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Croswell cabin. The space met our needs perfectly and, as others have noted in your guest book, your wonderful decorating and thoughtful touches, really made for a very comfortable stay. We especially appreciated having paper products available upon arrival and an abundance of bath towels etc.. At one point or another, most of us used the hot tub and we built a fire one evening for s'mores, which the kids just loved.
Thank you so much for your help with renting the cabin. It was lovely!! The cabin was just what the doctor ordered and the beautiful backyard was a wonderful retreat.Thank you again!
Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed out stay & we look forward to coming back! Thanks for offering up a child & pup friendly pleace - everyone was happy, thus mommy & daddy could relax a bit.
P.S. Loved all the black lab photos!
We received the deposit yesterday~ thank-you and thank-you for sharing your beautiful home. We had a fabulous time and we all loved your house. It was so stinkin hot during our week.......you are much younger than I expected (assuming that was you in the picture over the mantle).....cute couple, cute dogs, cute and comfortable house....thanks again. If our travels bring us back next summer we will definitely rent again.
all the best~
Hi Ellie, Sorry I didn't write to you sooner but my work has been very very busy lately so I was glad to get away for the week in Holland. As usual, our stay was incredible and our friends loved the place. The kids played in the backyard and LOVED the beach. I couldn't believe how much they loved the water and it was such a hot week that we went after dinner every night and the water was perfect. WE love you place and hope to be back again next year. Thank you once again for a great and relaxing vacation.Caron
I received the security deposit check back from you, just wanted to let you know!
Thanks so much for allowing us the privilege of using the cabin a couple of weekends ago! It was absolutely wonderful, better than we had imagined. We loved the firepit and the outdoor patio in back, and the interior of the house was fantastic! Loved the decor, fellow dog lovers!
Thanks again, the family is already talking about possibly returning next year. I'll be writing a very positive review on VRBO for our stay!

I just wanted to let you know that this rental house was, by far, the best place we have ever stayed! Everything was perfect! The location was amazing, the house was awesome, the bike path was great, and the beach.....fabulous! I am originally from Michigan and my sister actually lived in Grand Haven for four years, so I visit the area often. We were so happy to be able to spend a day in Grand Haven or a day in Holland or a day in Saugatuck. My girls have practically grown up visiting this area of the state. My daughter was enthralled with the photographs of your dogs, by the way.
I posted pictures of the house on Facebook and as it turns out my cousin stayed there in 2009. What are the odds! Anyway, I thank you again for sharing such a great place and hopefully we can come back next year!
I wanted to get this out to you earlier but my work desk needed a bit more attention than I expected...
Jack, “Schultz” and I enjoyed the Croswell Cabin so very much. You have done an outstanding job in taking care of all the details in decorating and we felt very much at home. Our family said it was far better than the photos – which I thought were pretty good. We loved sitting on the back porch area having coffee in the morning – after the chill wore off.
Hopefully, we will be able to schedule a time next year to visit again but we need to wait to see what our vacation plans will be. However, if we plan to go anywhere near Holland or West Olive we will contact you.
We will also be happy to recommend you to our friends and family.
Thanks again. It was certainly a pleasure to work with you and Bill.

We had a great trip to Holland. The house was perfect for the group and for the weekend. It was so nice to feel so comfortable in your house. Everyone kept commenting the minute they would walk in - "this is so nice, I feel like I am right at home" (that says a lot about how you all designed, built and decorated the house :). The location was wonderful - it was so convenient but when we were at the house we felt like we were in the woods all by ourselves. I know that everyone would like to put their comments about the house into emails to send you - are you OK with me giving the other guests your email address so that they can share their positive thoughts with you? My parents were the last to leave the house on Monday and they assured me that they would turn off all of the lights and lock it up - I hope that that is exactly what they did. It was amazing that you all thought of everything and that the house was so ready to go when we all arrived on Friday after our long trips across the US - we all felt so welcome and that is due to you all and your incredible hospitality!!
Thanks Ellie - it was a true pleasure working with you on this rental and we could not have been more thrilled with everything about your house!!
All the best,
Ellie - Just got home from our wonderful fun filled weekend. Worked out perfect for us. Loved the bikes, used them a lot.
The ladies want me to let you know we want to rent your cabin again next year as we all loved it!
Not sure if it is on VRBO for next year dates or not but we would want the same four days the weekend B4 Memorial weekend. So please keep us in mind and let me know when those dates get put on the calendar for us to book it.
We want to thank you again for allowing our family to rent your cabin. We had a great time and the cabin was a big part of that! The kids loved the bunk beds and the basement overall. We celebrated my birthday with family and used the back yard to the fullest. Overall, the cabin was perfect for us, it is very nice and it has a great "cabin feel" - that's about the only way to explain it and we loved it! We were already talking about using it again next year if it is available when we look to go back.
Thank you again!
Thank you! We loved it and hope to come back soon! We would love to visit and stay during the Fall. I bet it's beautiful then. :) Our family loved it too and are keeping you in mind for their future visits as well. :)
Hi Ellie and Bill,
Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful cabin this weekend. We had the most amazing time! I hope to be back someday!
