Property description

Recently renovated cottage from top to bottom offering first availability summer of 2011. All new electric, plumbing, cabinets, appliances and electronics along with interior finishes, not the least of which is the newly refinished hardwood floors that were discovered under year's old carpeting. In addition to the complete renovation, we more recently made a significant investment in 2013, replacing the windows along with structural renovation and encapsulation of the crawlspace, eliminating humidity in the house, further mitigated by complete replacement of all HVAC ductwork.

You'll enjoy the peaceful setting from your picture window seat in the living room that affords a full view of the front yard (and the occasional black squirrels that pass through). The 40' HD LED TV and BluRay player provide traditional television content as well as NetFlix movies and other entertainment options. The hide-a-bed couch in the living room provides sleeping accommodations for two additional guests [for the maximum 6 for the property].

The master bedroom features its own bathroom along with Olympic Queen Sleep Number bed, 28' LED TV and closet. The second bedroom is likewise equipped with a 28' LED TV and two Twin Beds along with a small closet.

The full featured kitchen is equipped with gas range, microwave and refrigerator in the midst of ample counter space along with brand new cabinets. You'll also find a stacked washer and dryer quieted by its closet in the corner of the kitchen.

In the midst of the renovation we made an effort to retain a few relics from the original house such as the cased entry into the kitchen [retained the North trim piece with all its flaws!], the 2-panel doors [two were converted to pocket doors and the other two retained in their original state, complete with glass door knobs].

Location, optimized space along with all the conveniences and comforts to make your stay in Saugatuck one to be remembered!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are Dave & Laurie Boller and are pleased that you're visiting our listing! Originally from Florida [Dave grew up in Tampa - Laurie grew up in Key West], we moved to the Midwest in 1995, raising two children in the Chicago suburbs along with our Labrador Retriever. We enjoy the RV lifestyle, having traveled the country in a travel trailer and now a motorhome, which currently is our principal residence while we engage in seasonal employment at recreational venues around the country. With that, it's easy to guess that we enjoy all things outdoors, be it hiking mountain trails or walks on the beach and everything in between.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
Following a vacation along the Michigan shore July of 2010 we found ourselves making day trips back to the various communities, finally settling on Saugatuck for its small harbor town appeal along with the shopping, restaurants, beach and access to Lake Michigan. We picked this particular property because of its immediate proximity to town while leveraging the elevation of the hill to escape the congestion of the business district.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Access to town along with a peaceful neighborhood setting. Sipping morning coffee while sitting in the livingroom picture window will be a great way to start the day. Five minutes out the front door you can be making your choice where you'll be having breakfast in town afterwhich you can enjoy a walk along the harbor or ride the chain ferry to the other side of the river.
