                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1978

                          About the owner: Hello, family picture 2011 4th of July parade in Saugatuck. Graduated from Saugtuck High School in 1981. Family has owned the house since 1978. Would be living there now if work had not taken me away, our loss is your gain!

                          Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                          It is the house I grew up in!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Wonderfull old house that overlooks downtown, at least when the leaves are not on the tress. Very enjoyable as you can walk to everything in town, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Park the car at the house, and forget about it for the rest of your stay. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are all up to date and in good clean condition. Additionally, local management and over site of the property ensures none of the unforeseen problems that can result from long distance owners that may not be fully aware of the day to day situation.
