Douglas cottage description

Shady Pines Cottage offers a charming two bedroom cottage tucked into the woods and within walking distance to Douglas Beach. The tasteful furnishings provide a comfortable accommodation for a party of one to six. Enjoy wooded views from most rooms or take a short stroll to enjoy the spectacular views and breathtaking sunsets over Lake Michigan. Relax, unwind and spend a lazy afternoon on the screened-in porch with a book or enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. The sun, sand, waves, fun and relaxation of pristine Douglas Beach are a few steps away. Downtown Saugatuck and Douglas, the heart of Michigan's Art Coast, are a short bike ride or drive away if you prefer to spend time exploring the many boutiques, fine dining and casual restaurants, shops, galleries, bike paths, parks, public beaches and marinas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Douglas:
While visiting the Douglas and Saugatuck area in the late summer of 2010, friends John, Judy and Greg were driving around checking out the area and specifically this fantastic neighborhood. We weren't really looking to tour any homes, but rather get a sense of the area. However, when we happened upon this cute cottage with the fantastic pine shutters, we were all immediately drawn it. The stars were in alignment and we toured the home the following day and were smitten. While much of the cottage retains it's original 1960's charm, tasteful updates have been made where needed and we welcome your suggestions to make Shady Pines Cottage an even more enjoyable and pleasant place to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Simply put - location, location, location! Shady Pines Cottage is located only steps away from pristine Douglas Beach and a short bike ride or drive from world-class Oval Beach. Regardless of what we are doing, walking over to the beach to enjoy the sunset is a must. Also, waking up to the birds chirping or simply enjoying the tranquility of the woods, including deer and fox walking through the front yard, is a nice respite from city living. Being able to leave your car parked and bike or walk around is a great feeling.
