Douglas house description

Charming single-family home vacation rental on cul-de-sac in Douglas, located at 3060 Park Drive, south off Center Street. With a short walk to the Douglas Public Beach on Lake Michigan, you will not be disappointed when you arrive to relax in this lovely home.

You will feel right at home from the moment you walk in - whether it be from your special welcome gift to the many bathroom and toiletry amenities provided so you can relax and enjoy your stay.

With 1300 square feet of living space you definitely will not feel cramped. The Pottery Barn furnishings complemented by personally chosen antiques abound throughout this professionally decorated home. See why this property is fully booked every Summer season!

Main Living Area: The Living Room area opens onto a screened porch that runs the length of the home. Enjoy relaxing on the porch, with its wicker love seat, chairs, tables and reading lamp. Abounding with light from the 3 sets of French Doors, the front living area feels open and peaceful, bringing the outdoors inside (don't be surprised if you see a family of deer outside the front porch).

Second Floor Living Area: On the 2nd level, there are 2 additional bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The second bedroom has 1 queen bed with plenty of closet space. The third bedroom, nick-named the 'Cowboy Room' contains 2 twin beds; a full-size baby crib is available upon request. Both bedrooms are bright and charming. The 2nd floor full bath is large and spacious.

Area Info: You'll love the location of this home, within walking distance of Lake Shore Drive where you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and the lovely Douglas public beach. It's only a short drive or an easy bike ride (using a provided mountain bike) to downtown Douglas or Saugatuck for dining, shopping, or boating. Douglas, Michigan is the proud recipient of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Distinctive Destination Award. Douglas is approximately 10 miles south of Holland, Michigan.
