Saugatuck house description

Nestled between Saugatuck & South Haven (15 minutes either way), we’re located in the charming four-cornered town of Glenn. The drive from Chicago or Detroit is about 2 ½ hours.

We are a 3 minute walk to Lake Michigan, down a dirt road to a natural incline – one of the rare access points without stairs to the beach.

Our house is three years old with all the custom amenities and is naturally clean, clean, clean. The open floor plan includes central air, a large kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an island with four stools, a dining space seating 8 to 10, and a comfortable sitting area. We often ‘unplug’ while in Glenn, but it’s nice having Wi-Fi throughout the house and a 46” flat panel TV with cable.

The house sleeps up to 8. The Master Bedroom (king bed) is on first floor with a walk-in shower that opens to a deck with private outdoor shower. Two large guest bedrooms (queen beds) with full baths are located upstairs, as is a private loft that sleeps two (twin beds). The loft shares the larger of the two upstairs bathrooms.

Our 'Zero-Step' house makes it easy to get everywhere on the first floor, including the lovely screened porch and rear deck with porch swing and gas grill.

The beauty of our neighborhood and beach is its natural serenity; and we’re located in an area with few rentals. This is not the place for loud large parties, fireworks and late hours.
Enjoy your quiet surroundings minutes from Saugatuck, Douglas, South Haven and Holland. There are plenty of art galleries, quaint shops, antique stores, fruit farms/stands and numerous golf courses in the area.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We spend our leisure time gardening, traveling, reading and exploring culinary interests - though not necessarily in that order.

                  Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                  We love the Saugatuck area and wanted to build a serene country house that was close enough to everything. We found the perfect locale in Glenn.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Large guest bedrooms with private baths are always a nice surprise for our guests; and walking the country roads and Lake Michigan beaches never gets tiring.
