The Shops at Nelis' Dutch Village

12350 James Street
Holland, MI 49424

We have mentioned before how wonderful it was to find such authentic Dutch locations, here in the states. Well this little gem is one of those wonders. A fun place for the family to spend the day wandering, learning and playing; though we used it for shooting scenes!

You can go visit one of our set locations, which is also a tourist attraction in Holland, Michigan.

While there, you can feed farm animals, ride the carousel or watch traditional dancing. Of course, you can also join the dancing, since lessons are offered!

They offer many authentic representations of dutch life, as seen over 100 years ago, including this Wedding Wagon. But that horse is not real. So don't get your hopes up!

When speaking of the Dutch culture we often think of the iconic wooden shoes. In the Nelis' Dutch Village, you can see how they are created. Either by hand or antique automated machinery.

The grounds include vibrant flowering gardens, canals and windmills, all manned by authentically dressed, and very friendly, staff.

The Shops at Nelis' Dutch Village has seasons of operation, so check before you make the stop. But do stop, it is well worth it!

The Baert Baron Mansion Bed and Breakfast

120 South Church St
Zeeland, MI 49464
phone: 616.748.1953

For the film, we were in need of a home to use for various scenes, inside and out. Something classy but age appropriate. Thankfully, we got this bed and breakfast!

The Baert Baron Mansion is in Zeeland, Michigan - a hop, skip and jump away from Grand Rapids. It was built by Dr. Daniel Baert in 1872 and is a classic example of the French Italianate design of the Nineteenth century in Western Michigan. 


Vic and Anna Karen VanDeventer have created a peaceful and beautiful stopover for guests, that includes tasty food and wireless internet.

Oh the Places We Went!

While filming for the movie is complete, and post production has begun, we still reminisce on the amazing places we worked this summer. For the next week or so, we want to highlight some of those places. Give you the info if you want to visit, tell you the funny stories and give props where they are deserved!

Then, after that, we should have a trailer for you! Guys, I am seeing the footage come together and it is incredible. I am not disappointed and am simply giddy over the prospect of the finished product!

But, patience is a virtue, therefore, nose to the grindstone and all that jazz...
