Saugatuck lodge description

The only 'new' structure on the property, Timber Lodge is a rough-hewn timber home built in 1990. A favorite of many of our guests, it sits farthest from the water, but boasts a beautiful view of the Timber Bluff grounds, and Lake Michigan beyond. A large outdoor raised deck with table and chairs overlooks the tall trees and beautifully landscaped grounds of Timber Bluff. Its provides a great spot for relaxing and entertaining outdoors.

The floorplans were modified in 2008, and the interior was transformed to feature the post and beam structure of this wonderful home. The entire house is pine, inside and out. The first floor is a large open room combining the kitchen, dining and living areas. The fully equipped galley kitchen has a large island with five stools for eating meals.

A beautiful split face stone fireplace with raised hearth, reclaimed pine floors, leather furniture, game table, and warm lighting, all contribute to the rustic warmth of Timber Lodge, which can be enjoyed through all the seasons. This is an ideal home to nestle in, for snowy winter stays. There is also a full bath with shower on the first floor.

The carpeted second floor has a small sleeping nook with privacy screen and full bed, a second bedroom with a full bed, the second bath and shower, and a skylit sleeping loft reached by a steep ladder/stair with twin mattresses that can be pushed together to make a second king sleeping area. A pair of double glass doors lead to the large master bedroom with king bed, vaulted ceiling, and a beautiful view of the grounds and Lake Michigan beyond.

Linens and towles are provided. Coffee maker, coffee, tea, sugar, condiments, and starter supplies of paper products are on hand. A grill is on the deck for cookouts. For summer stays, you will need to bring beach supplies. This home accommodates 8 people, Timber Lodge is a beautiful, comfortable home.
