Saugatuck house description

Enjoy the serenity and solitude of this well-appointed vacation home. Nestled in a wooded lot a block away from the lakefront, and a three block walk to a beautiful, private Lake Michigan beach, it's the perfect get-away. The property is surrounded by woods and gardens with secluded deck and hot tub, in a private gated community. Because the beach is private, there are no closing times, you can have a bonfire or walk your dog on the beach.* It is also one of the most accessible beaches in the area, you can walk or drive and park right at the beach, no stairs.

Three bedroom, plus sleeper sofa, two full baths, it sleeps eight people. Master suite on the first floor has a queen size bed, perfect for the senior members of the family. Large bedroom on second floor is set up for kids and families with a trundle and queen size bed in one room. The third bedroom has a queen.

The interior is tastefully appointed with two wood-burning fireplaces, new appliances - including washer and dryer, and central air conditioning.

The house is in a quiet, beach association neighborhood. There are tennis courts and a park for viewing the sunset. Several world-class golf courses are within minutes of Glenn Haven Shores.

Near the country town of Glenn, it’s just 10 minutes from the shopping, dining and culture in Saugatuck/Douglas and South Haven. An easy two hour drive from the Chicago Loop, and less than three hours from Metro Detroit. Only 45 minutes from Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo.

*The beaches of West MI, including ours, are much narrower this year due to very high water levels following the severe winter of 2014. Our beach is very rocky this year because we lost about 20 feet of sand. We're hoping the beach gets back to where it was and looks more like the photos on our listing!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: My husband, daughter and I live in the charming town of Douglas, just 10 minutes from the rental property. We moved from the city of Chicago in 2002 and have loved every minute of living in this area. Because we are now 'locals' feel free to ask questions and get recommendations on what do while you visit. Happy Travels!

                          Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                          We fell in love with the lakefront from South Haven to Saugatuck when we were residents of Kalamazoo many years ago. In the interim we moved to Chicago, and as much as we loved the city, we missed the peace, quiet and beauty of this area. We hoped to build a vacation home and searched for many years for the perfect location. We found Glenn Haven Shores to have the best beach in the area and bought a lot in the early 90s. We were lucky enough to be able to move here permanently and bought this vacation house in 2002 and a residence in Douglas.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          It's all about the private beach. It's shared with the other members of our association, but there's always plenty of room to spread out. In the off season and during the week, there's a pretty good chance you will have the beach to yourself. It's also very accessible to seniors and small children in that you can drive down and park right at the beach. Most beaches in this area are only accessible with hundreds of stairs. A problem if you forget something once you get down there! You can also build a campfire on the beach and roast marshmallows with the family. This is the unique benefit of the private beach. The other thing we enjoy is how quiet and dark it is. On a clear night you can sit in the hot tub and see stars forever.
