                            Had a wonderful stay at this cottage right on Lake Michigan! It is very cozy and literally steps down to a private beach with wonderful views for miles. Fran, the owner, is wonderful and available for local tips on restaurants and what to do. It is situated near town with easily drives to downtown Douglas & Saugatuck. The cottage is very clean with plenty of pillows and blankets if you get any chilly nights! This was my first time at the cottage and I'm already inquiring about a stay for next summer so I can enjoy the beach a little more.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway.

                            We stayed at this little cabin for a week. It was just perfect for the two of us. The location, accommodations and hosts were all just fantastic! We would spend our evenings sitting in the red chairs overlooking the lake and just soaking in the view. Fran was the best hostess, giving us directions to a fantastic bakery and providing guidance on restaurants. We feel we've found the place we want to return to year after year. Plus, it's so close to all the towns you want to visit in SW Michigan. Thank you Fran and Mort for such a lovely cabin where we could relax, bike and enjoy our vacation!

                            Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation here. This is such a special and interesting area, we love it ourselves and enjoy helping you find the hidden gems. Thanks for your kind words!

                            My family had the perfect vacation at this lovely cottage! Amazing views of Lake Michigan from the cottage! The private beach was restful, scenic, and easy to get to!! The views from the bluff, especially the sunsets are beautiful! The cottage is in excellent condition and we had everything we needed. We would definitely love to come back in the future!

                          Year Purchased: 1976

                          About the owner: We are a retired couple with a charter sailboat in Saugatuck. Love to garden, hike, travel, and lead an active lifestyle. We provide you with books on the area, personal recommendations, and are always available to make sure things run smoothly for your vacation.

                          Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                          We love this area - this has been our home for 35 years. Saugatuck is not the typical small town, with art gallery, arts center, live music, brew pub, beautiful surroundings. We are close to all the action yet completely peaceful and private on the beach.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Lovely lakeshore location offers direct access to your own private bluff view of Lake Michigan. Enjoy lounging on your private beach, long beach walks, and spectacular sunsets, and yes, moonsets! Hop in the car for a quick drive to Saugatuck State Park, shopping, coffee shops,great restaurants, art galleries, wineries, brew pub, and Saugatuck Center for the Arts for live music and theater, and the great variety of planned events throughout the summer and fall. There are many interesting communities to visit nearby, beautiful country roads to expore.
