Saugatuck house description

The Whitehouse Cottage is a beautiful, large Colonial style home located just a few short blocks from the downtown. The Whitehouse has a number of interesting architectural features, e.g. eyebrow window over the front door, 9 foot ceiling in living room, etc. The cottage has three large bedrooms, two with king beds and one with queen. There are three full bathrooms including a ground floor one with washer/dryer. The large living room has plenty of comfortable seating, a TV entertainment center, fireplace and a queen sized sofa-bed. The large kitchen and dining room is fully equipped with all appliances, cooking utensils and a dishwasher. There is also a game room off the kitchen. The cottage is air conditioned throughout even though it is almost always naturally cool because of the many shade trees surrounding the home. The house has a lovely large deck and yard with swing and firepit and sits far back from the street. This makes it an ideal place for yard games, children's play and family events and is very private and secluded. The large deck sits on the front of the house with a table, seating and a large gas grill. This is a perfect place for enjoying your time with family and friends. The cottage is only 1 1/2 blocks from the downtown business district and the River. There is also a beautiful nature preserve just 100 yards down the street. Take your coffee and make a morning walk on the nature trail that winds along the border of the wetland area. This area is full of wildlife and nature's beauty. The Cottage is a great place for families and groups of friends who are looking for a comfortable place to create many vacation memories
