I came in to Holland to attend a music educators workshop at Hope College, and to have dinner with my daughter who attends Hope. The location was just a few minutes from campus and the property was just lovely! I stayed in the Cozy Corner room, which was lovingly decorated with lace and flowers. There was a small sitting area next to an electric fireplace which made a comfy spot to spend a little time conversing with my daughter before we went to dinner. The private bathroom was spotless. As it was a lovely day, the windows were open and the room was fresh. Two large homemade cookies awaited me. The common area on the second floor provided a large sitting area, as well as bottled water and microwave popcorn. As I had to leave early to attend my workshop, innkeeper Pat offered to bring me a tray an hour earlier than the normal breakfast time. My tray arrived with an egg casserole, banana muffin, mixed fruit with yogurt and hot tea and orange juice, all served on Delft-style china. It was delicious! I will definitely recommend the Dutch Colonial and plan to stay there again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dutch Colonial Inn Bed and Breakfast originated as a family residence. The initial structure, built in 1928, served as a wedding gift for the bride and groom. We offer beautiful guest rooms and elegant suites with king or queen size sleeping accommodations. All rooms have private baths with tiled shower, most with a double jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The inn's wonderful atmosphere is perfect for a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday celebration or just a getaway. Spacious common areas include a delightful wicker-clad sun porch and a living room on the formal side, yet cozy enough to unwind in. Warm weather permitting, the white wooden rockers on the open front porch invite you to relax and rock as the world walks by. Our delicious full breakfast pampers you, yet provides a healthy and hearty homemade feast. Awaken to fresh brewed coffee, the fragrance of homemade muffins, coffeecakes and ham/sausage egg casseroles. Close to beautiful downtown Holland and just a short drive from one of the most beautiful beaches in Michigan. ... more less
