Saugatuck cottage description

Looking for a tranquil setting away from the bustle of Saugatuck, yet close to the beach? Enjoy sunsets nestled in the woods in this Historic home.

The Parsonage vacation rental is located on Lakeshore Dr. 4 miles south of Saugatuck & 10 miles north of South Haven.

Lake Michigan beaches are easy access from the Parsonage House. Pier Cove Beach is a 5 minute walk, Westside County Park is just around the corner, and Saugatuck's infamous Oval Beach is nearby.
