    I'm a father of four boys from ages 14 to 1 1/2 so I work and operate "Dad's Taxi Serice" most of the time, I live in greenville.  I was a beer and wine rep in the area for about 5 years until spring of 2016 when I joined by father in this business.  I come from an entire family of small business owners so I understand life from your perspective.  When I'm not working or driving family taxi the boys and I are usually boating, fishing or snowmobiling if we aren't at on of their many sports events.  From my years of being a beer rep in the area I consider it my home away from home and count many of my past customers as personal friends still.

    Property Owner
    Hello, RCC members! My name is Dawn Zondervan. My husband, Todd, and I have been married for 24 years and we live (full-time) in Caledonia, MI, with our three children. Two are in college, and one is in HS, so they're really not "children," but hopefully that gives you a snapshot of what phase we're at in life! I am a speech-language pathologist, and Todd works in sales for a packaging company. We bought a cottage on River St. (Croton Pond) early last summer (2017), and the property across the street became available just a few months later. It seemed like the perfect chance to finally start the vacation rental business we had always dreamed about, so we dove right in! We had renters all spring and summer this year, and have had fantastic feedback and reviews so far! Please contact us if you would like to check it out for your family vacation or event rental...we would love to meet you!
