                        This was our second stay at the Spear St house and we couldn't have picked a better spot. We spent an enjoyable extended weekend taking in all that Saugatuck and the home has to offer. The Spear St home provided easy walking access to downtown Saugatuck restaurants, shopping and parks, yet the home provided such a tranquil and relaxing setting. The owners obviously take great pride in the home, the beautiful kitchen is well equipped, the home is spotless, and the yard is well maintained. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the sun room of an evening with a glass of wine or local beer. Considering this is our 7th VRBO experience, we rate this experience highly and we will be back again this fall.

                        Another great stay at this lovely home. This is our second trip to this house and it was even nicer than we remembered. It is well-stocked, comfy, clean and beautiful. Our kids loved it and are already talking about what we are going to do next year. We highly recommend this property!

                        We stayed at this home for one week this summer. It was perfect for our family of 2 adults + 2 kids. The kids were well situated in their rooms, and Mom and Dad were comfy too. Kitchen was fully stocked with tools for cooking and town was a short walk away for many great restaurants. Yard was good for the kids to run around in and the neighborhood felt safe. Saugatuck was a great area to explore, really enjoyed ourselves. The favorites for the kids were Saugatuck dunes buggy ride and kayaking from Douglas. We loved Oval Beach and Saugatuck Dunes State Park beach (the walk is worth it!).

                        Our family just returned from Saugatuck and we can't say enough wonderful things about this house. It is beautiful and comfortable and perfectly located. The backyard is great for kids. We can't wait to come back next year!

                        My 3 adult daughters, 2 grandkids, & I just spent 3 nights in this house, & really enjoyed it! The owners have exquisite taste in furnishings - beautiful antique furniture mixed with other more contemporary pieces. All of the modern amentities are here too -- gorgeous kitchen, & lovely bathrooms (2nd one is in basement, but it's not a big deal to run down there occasionally). The primary TV is in the front sunroom, which is nice if someone wants to stay up to watch it... they can close the sunroom door to keep it quiet for other sleepers. We walked to the downtown area every day... just a few short blocks away. Since it's an older home, the hardwood floors are squeaky, so if someone needs to get up in the middle of the night (ie. to go to the bathroom)... you have to cross the hardwood living room to get there... just a very minor drawback, but not a huge deal by any means. If you have very small kids, bring a gate, as the basement stairway is open (no door)... luckily, we brought a gate & it worked out very well -- we put it at the entrance to the kitchen (well before the stairway). This house + Saugatuck = a GREAT vacation & a great vacation value! Tim, the owner, was more than willing to accomodate us in any way that we needed. We hope to come back in future years!!

                        Wow! My husband and I just returned from a relaxing weekend at Spear St House and were pleasantly surpised at how gorgeous the house was on the inside. And...being a bit of a germaphobe, I appreciated the fact that it was immaculately clean. The neighborhood is beautiful and serene, along with the nature preserve in the back of the yard. The squirrels were having a blast eating and storing the acorns from the massive Oak trees on the property...don't be surprised to hear them skampering across the roof at times..:-) Tim was very pleasant and accommodating. Thanks for sharing your cozy cottage with us!

                        Wow! We just spent the weekend at Spear St. House and could not be more surprised at how gorgeous the inside of this house was. The pictures do not do it justice....on top of that, it was immaculately clean. Tim was most gracious and accommodating. It was a very peaceful, pleasant weekend, well worth it! Also, the squirrels were having a blast in the backyard eating and storing all the acorns fallen from the massive Oak trees, don't be surprised to hear them running across the rooftop. :-)

                        We just got back tonight from a 4 night stay at this home. The pictures dont tell the story - this home is beautiful and beautifully decorated. From the front the home looks smaller than it really is, its long so you really dont see the size of it if your looking straight on at the front.The kitchen is large fully stocked and all updated along with the bathrooms. Hardwood flooring, large seperate dining room and 3 nice bedrooms. We slept like babies the beds were so comfortable. A plus was the large detached 2 car garage! A nice walk to town its fun looking at everyones homes in the neighborhood, everyone is very nice. Its a very comfortable neighborhood - cozy. The home is siutauted on a very large lot, a beautifully wooded and well landscaped backyard with a lovely stone patio. The front of the home has a nice porch to sit out on and watch whats going on in the neighborhood as you sit and have cocktails. Its a short drive to Lake Michigan's beach which we went to 3 times! We went on the winery tour which is a 15 minute drive from the house and a boat cruise which we walked to catch. Everything is just a few minutes walk from the home but you have the peace of being away from all of the busy downtown area at the home. There is also a nice little town in Douglas and some terrific restaurants there. We loved Zings in Douglas. With out a doubt this home made our trip special we will definately be back. And the owners could not have been nicer!

                        My girlfriends and I have stayed here many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. It's a great location - close to town, but still quiet and relaxing. Within walking distance to spas, restaurants, bars, etc. We had a fantastic time wine tasting at FennValley Winery. There is so much to do in the area that one weekend is not enough. We will definitely return to this rental property in the future!

                        My husband and I have been coming to Saugatuck for about 25 years, sometimes with our children, sometimes not. We always stayed in bed and breakfasts but we now have a son-in-law and new grandson so we needed a house for this trip.. I looked on -line and came across the Spear Street House. I talked with Tim on the phone a couple times. He is VERY pleasant to talk to and very accomodating. We arrived later in the day and when we walked in we were blown away. The house is much larger than it shows in pictures and very beautiful. Every view from every window is gorgeous. It was fall and it was very colorful. It had everything we needed plus more. The kitchen was more than adequately stocked with everything to feel like you were at home and the whole house was very clean. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend for anyone, especially for families. Also, we had great weather and walked to town several times, it was under a 10 minute walk and we were able to see all the beauty of Saugatuck along the way. Thanks again Tim and Deb for an absolutely wonderful fall getaway!!
