                  About: The owners of the Carriage house are originally from Farmington Michigan where they owned a home and a number of rental properties. Over the years they visited Saugatuck and bought a summer home in the City. When they retired from their jobs they decided to make Saugatuck their home in the Summer. During the Winter they live in their motor home or power boat in Southern Florida and the Keys. the owners have a minature poddle named Tucker and a black cat they call Kitty.

                  Why Saugatuck:
                  The owners built the Carriage House so that they would have a comfortable place for their friends and family to stay when they visited. When they retired to Saugatuck they decided to rent the Carriage House as a way for the additional rental income opportunity.
