Happy Spring! It’s always so nice, after a cold winter, to see the buds of spring here in Holland! Just another reminder that Easter, Spring Break, and Tulip Time are just around the corner. Don’t forget to book your stay at the Beach House for the May 5-13 Tulip Festival, or for a quick spring get-away!

Well, look who’s named one of the charming main streets in the US–our very own Holland!

Have a glass of wine at a vintage winery, then shop for home goods, jewelry, clothes, unique gifts, specialty toys, art supplies, and more as you explore the cobblestone sidewalks of 8th Street in Holland.

 

 

 

 

 

tulipsWith the warmer weather we’re having this week, it’s easy to start thinking about Tulip Time again!

Holland, Michigan’s Tulip Time Festival began in 1929, initially as a “tulip day” to celebrate the city’s Dutch heritage, and showcased 250,000 tulips imported from the Netherlands. Today, Holland’s hallmark cultural event boasts nearly 4.5 million tulips and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors over the course of eight days each May.

Book your Beach House stay now, and come see for yourself why Readers Digest has named The Holland Tulip Time Festival the “Best Small Town Festival in America”!

What Lois isn’t considering here, is the salt-free, hurricane-free, shark-free Great Lakes! With Holland’s two top-rated beaches just half a mile away, The Beach House pool completes a perfect, clean water triangle of summer fun!

How nice for us, that just down the street are two of Holland’s best “must-stop” shops! Captain Sundae has hosted politicians, local celebrities, and now putt putt, with its 18-hole mini golf course for added summer fun! And the renowned deBoer’s Bakkerij (that’s Dutch for “Bakery”) serves a fantastic breakfast and lunch, as well as pick-up from their store so you can have “the best buns on the beach” this summer!

These are two of our favorite Holland stops…what are some of yours?

I love what this recent guest said about The Beach House:
Brilliantly Beachy!
The Beach House is clean, cute, & comfortable. The interior was nicely decorated. The house was neat and clean. All amenities you could think of are provided, including books & games. Each floor is spacious. We were able to fit a pack & play in the first floor bedroom for my niece who is just 3 months old. This place was perfect for the whole family!
