Saugatuck cottage description

Situated on 5 private acres and overlooking 250 feet of private beach, our cottage provides a wonderful setting for a great vacation. Enjoy the view of the lake from the cottage, from the new deck or walk down the steps to the beach. No roads, woods or 'short walks' to the beach. This spectacular cottage lets the lake embrace you. Lake Michigan is so large (120 miles wide and 350 miles long) that it feels like the ocean without the salt water and sharks! The water is usually warm in the summer for swimming, sometimes calm as glass and other days with huge rolling waves. Walking miles is a favorite is hanging out under the umbrellas. Building sand castles, splashing in the waves, enjoying campfires and reading in the hammock are just some of the joys of being at the 'big lake'. Picnics on the deck, chasing fireflies into the evening, watching an unforgettable sunset with friends and family...this is what connects us and what wonderful memories are made of.

Venturing away from the beach, you can visit Saugatuck or South Haven, each about 10 minutes away, or other little villages nearby. There you will find shopping, galleries and fun and funky restaurants. Playing golf is easy on one of the many area courses. Bicycling on trails or country roads has also become very popular. A summer highlight is visiting the outdoor farmer's markets in Saugatuck or Holland which offer up the rich bounty of the area. Picking your own blueberries, raspberries, peaches or apples is always a highlight with young and old alike. Boat rentals for sailing, motor boating or fishing are nearby. Windsurfers and wave runners are also available to rent.

In any season,you can experience the wonder of Lake Michigan.
Great times are waiting for you. Come stay at the cottage and share a piece of our private paradise.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1971

                      About the owner: We grew up in Michigan enjoying Lake Michigan. We moved to Colorado in 1968 and missed the water so we found this land with a little cottage on it. We vacationed there for many summers with our family. In 1995 we built the present cottage, adding the deck and covered gazebo last year. The cottage holds many dear memories of time spent with family and friends. Many others have stayed at the cottage over the years and each has signed a rock which we have displayed in the living room reminding us of all the good times shared there.

                      Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                      The cottage offers a comfortable and beautiful space to feel closer to nature and enjoy friends and family or find a place for solitude. Relax in hammock or on the deck or kayak, paddle board or swim in glorious Lake Michigan. Enjoy spectacular sunsets and star filled skies.
