GREAT DISCOUNTS for winter rentals! Please have a look at our availability calendar to start planning your family, group or romantic getaway at this beautiful all-wood cabin in Kingfisher Cove. Mere minutes - approximately 6, to be precise - from downtown Saugatuck, Michigan.
With everything you need, and plenty of it, for a memorable and wonderful vacation with just enough to do, and plenty of time to do nothing.
This cabin is perfect in every way; a romantic hideaway for you and your honey, a family vacation with the kids, or a group getaway ~ you will be delighted with by its charm, open floorplan and welcoming atmosphere. This cabin is owned and operated by the Conway Family of Chicago. It's cozy, warm and down to earth - with the little luxuries and amenities that make your vacation complete, memorable and fun!
Conveniently located in southwest Michigan, not too far from anywhere, but light years away from the stress and nonsense of everyday living.
Nestled in a beautiful nature preserve, a short stroll down the boardwalk to the shore of Goshorn Lake, Roadside Marker Vacation Cabin is part of the vacation community known as Kingfisher Cove.
The Great Room of this beautiful all wood cabin, designed by Deb Colvin, features a 22' high wood-burning fireplace. You'll also find a stereo, with AM/FM tuner, CD player and iPod dock with remote. The dining area features an immense, one-of-a-kind stump wood table, great for meals, as well as board games - a great selection of which can be found in the cabinet next to the fireplace.
And if you're one of those folks who still like to know what's going on in the outside world, don't despair of this get-back-to-nature hideaway. You'll find a 42' Plasma screen television in the loft, with basic cable, and ROKU, so that you can sign in to your own personal streaming accounts (Hulu, Netflix, etc) and enjoy your favorite programs on a rainy day. Did we mention wireless internet? That's there too.
Self-catering - fully appointed kitchen, with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, coffee maker, cooking and baking utensils, lots of counter space and service for eight.
In the summer, cool off in the pool, steps from the front door.
For cookouts, there's a gas grill. Just off the back porch, you'll find a lovely patio, surrounded by pine trees, and a fire-pit for that evening campfire and marshmallow roast.
And, oh yes. The Private Chilly Season Hot Tub - located on the screened in back porch - a terrific way to relax, spring, fall or winter. (Operational from mid September through mid May.)

- Only a couple of minutes from downtown Saugatuck, with galleries, restaurants and shopping, and a hop, skip and a jump away from Saugatuck Dunes State Park with great hiking, unmanicured cross country ski trails and amazing beaches.

Welcome to Kingfisher Cove! These awesome cabins share 200 feet of pristine Goshorn Lake frontage with an pier and easy in/out ladder for swimming and non-motorized boats. 17 acres of woods, a private association heated pool, boardwalks, nature trails and Lake Michigan breezes. Kingfisher Cove isn't far from fun either, located just down the road from the Dune Rides, which from all accounts, is a thrilling afternoon! A brief drive (literally a couple of minutes) takes you to Saugatuck Dunes, great hiking and an uncrowded Lake Michigan beach - or if crowds are more your style, we're not far from Oval Beach - just across the bay (rated one of the worlds Top 10 Beaches!) If wineries, lots of galleries and shopping are your thing, there's the terrific Saugatuck/Douglas shopping districts, we're about 15 minutes from downtown Holland (where the New Holland Brewery is located - hey beer lovers!) and Fennville and it's farms and wineries is just a short drive away. More to do than you can possibly fit into a week - or the best place in Michigan to do nothing at all.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Being a large family of brothers, wives and children who actually do like to go on vacations together, we understand what is needed for a relaxing yet fun stay at a place that can be both serene and bustling. We believe that this cabin is that perfect mixture. Agent Owned and Operated: D. Conway IL 475.159476
Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
Our family has had close Michigan ties going back three generations. A small fishing/hunting cottage on the shore of Lake Leelaneau in the northern part of the state has been a family gathering spot for almost 100 years. We wanted to continue the tradition, and perhaps have something a little closer to Chicago, which most of us call home. Since Saugatuck has always been a stopping point in our travels to and from Lake Leelaneau, and we'd already made many memories there, we were naturally drawn to the area. Now, it's just a quick drive out of our concrete jungle, and into the relaxing beauty that is southwest Michigan. We love it, and know you will too!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This place has it all! From the 22' high fireplace to the screened in back porch overlooking the untouched woodland. From the community pool just steps away from the front porch to the 42' plasma TV in the loft. From Goshorn Lake just down the boardwalk to your own private hot tub on the screened in back porch (operational late September through mid-May.) From downtown Saugatuck just a few minutes away to the pristine beaches of Michigan's east coast, Roadside Marker is the place to let your hair down, put your feet up and just be.
