Key Information

What: Holland is a town of roughly 33,000 people situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. Founded by Dutch Calvinist separatists in 1847, the area has maintained its strong Dutch connection by hosting Tulip Time Festival and being home to many Dutch themed attractions. The area is also known as the "city of churches" with hundreds of churches and two religiously affiliated colleges - Hope and Calvin. Finally, Holland was ranked as the 2nd healthiest/happiest town in the United States by the Well-being index (2010).

When: 1847

Why: My future sister-in-law lives there and is starting her own house hunt after the holidays (hi Kristen!).

How many: 33,051 (2010)

Local Attractions:
- New Holland Brewing - a micro-brewery that looks to have a lot to offer 
- Deboer Bakkerij & Dutch Brothers Restaurant - when in Rome or rather Holland eat as the Dutch do
- JP's Coffee - a classic coffeehouse in downtown Holland

Definitely a fixer upper but it has good clean lines, lots of original wood work, five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Also it seems very centrally located.

I really like this house or shall I saw cottage. It is a classic Michigan lake house but has been updated and meticulously maintained. It also has Lake Macatawa access and sits on 0.75 acres.

House #3: $398,900

This cottage has lots of charm and apparently was owned by the same family for 50 years. I like it for its screened in porch, lots of windows and light and bead board through out. 

House #4: $772,500

Have a good weekend everyone!
