  • Don't miss it! Beautiful gardens doesn't even begin to say how awesome they are! The windmill is amazing and the docents are totally in to the tours they give. We even got to meet the Miller! If you get there early on a good day you can also purchase some of the flour that's ground there! Lots of beautiful photo ops and even a playground for the kids. Great value for money and a relaxing spot to enjoy the day.
  • I took my out-of-town friends here because we were trying to knock out every tourist thing to do in west Michigan. I think it's $10 per person and you can probably get at least two hours of fun here. The windmill tour was informative and quick. The shop has lots of Dutch items (food, decor, souvenirs). If you love licorice, DEFINITELY come here - there are like 20 different types. The garden is very well manicured. I can see people holding events here because it's so pretty.
