5/5 Excellent

Perfect Location
The Gatehouse was the perfect location and size for my family of 6. It was within walking distance of downtown and the wonderful restaurants of Holland. The check-in process was easy and Dave was great to work with. He answered any questions we had in a timely manner. The house was clean and comfortable, and the antiques added to the charm of the house. The only issue we had with the house was the stairway. The stairs are a little narrow and steep, but after a few trips up and down you got used to them. The doorway at the bottom of the steps was a little short for my six foot five inch boys, but there's nothing you can do about the doorways of these older homes. It was a great place to stay and we would stay there again. Thanks Dave for making our stay very enjoyable.
