Property description

This is a cozy, rustic home focused on sustainability and creativity in the middle of 20 acres of beautiful forest. Quiet, private with the owner nearby for your convenience. This is the place for creative women (and men) with a passion for sharing their lives and their glasses of wine on the screened-in porch, bonding, enjoying the sunsets over the pond and making fun memories. And also having that cup of coffee in the morning with a treat from Karen's kitchen. No sirens or traffic noise, no people noise. Just the music of peepers, birds and breezes.

There's a fire pit in the patio and 2 campfire settings just to remind you that you're in the country and a hammock for watching the universe of stars at night. My English Mastiff, woman's best friend, is also here to greet you when you want. Spud, the cat, loves people, too.

There may be an afternoon workshop in the barn which you may want to join. Ask about it. And when you want to check out the events in Saugatuck or South Haven or take a dip in Lake Michigan, you're just minutes away.

Guests may rent the sleeper cabin for $85 a night, includes continental breakfast if not renting with a group in the big cabin.

Please call 269-355-3339 to discuss.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I've had various careers over many years in the Midwest but this place has been in my heart since the 60's. I love this forest. I also love sharing it with others so they can also experience the insights that peaceful, quietness brings.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
What people love about this property is the quiet, peaceful privacy and the home made pie waiting in the kitchen (claimed to be the best anyone has ever enjoyed). Just minutes from Lake Michigan but $$$$ less than the lakeshore rentals. Guests may sign up for workshops in the barn which may be scheduled (ask the owner who's nearby to answer any questions). The Red Spirit in located 10 minutes from South Haven, Saugatuck and Fennville, all with their own special interests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There are walking trails through the woods, a large pond with a little beach and a boat to paddle around, a blackberry patch, a forest preserve just down the road about a mile, farm markets within minutes and more. Owner is 50 ft. away in separate quarters, if needed.
