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.

                            This house is clean, attractive, comfortable and stocked with everything you need for a fun vacation stay. We had three generations and all thought the house met their needs. We loved being able to walk to the lakeshore to play and to see the sunsets every night.

                            The cottage was very nice, clean and well decorated . The cabinets and refrigerator had many things in them that other cottages don't have but maybe a few too many things left from others . We were a family of 4 and had difficulty putting groceries in the cabinets and refrig for the week . The porch furniture cushions did not fit the furniture well made it difficult to sit there and I wanted to sit there . It was in a great quite location but near everywhere you need and want to be .

                            I liked that it had some things like condiments and such but the cabinets and refrigerator did have a lot of things we were not going use and made it difficult to put food for a family in it no room in the refrig. The furniture was not very comfortable in the living room or the porch , the cushions did not fit on the porch furniture , slipped off all the time. It was beautiful and well decorated and clean , fit our family very well. location was quite and easy to get to anywhere. all in all it was really good.

                            Owner response: We do take pride in ensuring the kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, storage containers, glassware, serving ware and anything else that one would need to cook while on vacation; therefore the kitchen cabinets are fully stocked with these items. We do also provide many things such as condiments, spices, paper products, olive oil, coffee, sugar, etc. which also do take up room in the kitchen. The fridge is also kept stock of commonly used condiments so people do not have to purchase those as well. Many renters have been very thankful that the cottage is fully stocked and that they do not need to purchase many cooking things at all. We are sorry that you felt there was not room for you things. As always, we ask renters to note any issues upon check in so we can correct, as we would have been happy to have someone make more room for your items or have you throw out items you did not want. Unfortunately, we did not hear about this until after. A replacement porch cushion for the loveseat has been ordered for the one that was noted as not fitting. Thank you for your feedback and your stay!

                            My family spent a very relaxing weekend in this cozy cottage. The house was clean, beautifully decorated, and the beds were comfortable. The owner was very responsive. The location was private and quiet. It was too chilly to spend much time on the beach, but we really enjoyed our hike to Mt. Baldhead. Would definitely stay here again!

We were impressed with the lovely landscaping, and having a garage was very handy for us. We appreciate the chance to stay here, and we hope to do so again!” Carol F.

                            My wife & I very much enjoyed our stay at this house for our first anniversary. Most everything was perfect except for the fireplace not working as expected and kitchen wear & tear that made it difficult to cook. Overall pretty great. Owner made the rental very easy. We hope to go back.

                            Owner response: In response to the fireplace not working, we did offer to send someone out to look at it as soon as we received the feedback but the renter declined. We are sorry they had trouble with the kitchen but when they checked in after we had checked in with them, they did not bring up at all and said everything was fine. Otherwise, as always, we would have offered to send someone out to make the repair ASAP. Update: We have since heard back from the renter and he clarified it was only the cutlery that was dull in the kitchen. We have replaced them with new knives. As always, thanks for the feedback.

                            What a perfect house, bigger than a 'cottage' close to lakes and towns; everything was there -- need a cookie sheet? no problem. Olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, coffee? Right there. Beach towels, fluffy shower towels, bathrobes, sweet screened in porch for coffee in the morning....what's not to love? The house is like a little Pottery Barn, spotless and air conditioned. The grill was right out back, great bikes in the garage. When can we go back?

                            We just got back from a nice stay in Douglas. The house is gorgeous and as other reviewers have stated, it's really stocked with pretty much every thing you could need. It is a nice touch to go somewhere with a baby and not have to worry about lugging a pack n play, toys, high chair, etc. The street was quiet, the beach was really nice, the porch is outstanding, the owner is super organized with the details and transaction.....I'd highly recommend staying here!

                            Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, romantic getaway, families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                            Words cannot describe the way I feel about this rental. After a week of living in this home, we drove off. My 5 year old son started crying. I asked him what was wrong and he said, "I miss Our Vacation House!" I felt exactly the same way! This home was immaculate. Not a detail was missing. My husband and I discussed buying the home as is. The location was a few blocks from Douglas Beach, which was a small, perfect, uncrowded beach. The home was decorated beautifully, all the way down to the window shades. We would've wanted to sleep on the beautiful front porch if it weren't for the unbelieveably comfortable beds! There were beach toys, chairs and wave boards in the garage and children's toys and games in the house. We cannot wait to come back next year. Best vacation ever!!!

                          Why the Owner Chose Douglas:
                          Some close friends of mine also own second homes in the Douglas and Saugatuck communities. With its beautiful beaches, terrific restaurants, and nearby entertainment, Douglas and Saugatuck is worlds away from Chicago!
