Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Owners are brother and sister and their spouses. We live in Omaha, Nebraska where we were raised. We love the area and wanted to buy a place that was in superb condition to share with others and to use periodically by our families.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
We have vacationed in the area several times over the last few years visiting our brother. We fell in love with the area and the people. The beauty of the area, the peacefulness and the many things to do made us want to have a place we could call our own and share with others. This home's location and its unbelievably perfect condition made it an easy choice. It is surrounded by lush landscaping and forest. It is very private, very quiet and very serene. Relaxing on the wrap around porch or on one of the decks and watching the deer run by or listening to the birds chirp or the waters roll in off Lake Michigan make it the perfect retreat. The Sauguatuck/Douglas area are just moments away. We love the wonderful dining, entertainment, shopping and beaches. This is truly our little slice of Heaven!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the moment we walked onto the property, we knew this was the home for us. The beautiful wrap around porch made us not want to leave. The quality and condition of the interior with its beautiful cherry wood floors, cabinetry, lighting and 360 degree view of the woods was exactly what we were looking for. The master suite with its own bath and the two large bedrooms upstairs with their own bath as well as the finished lower level is the perfect set up for a family or for several couples wanting to get away. The kitchen is a dream to work in and you never seem seperated from the other guests. The cozy den is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or sneak in an afternoon nap. The fireplace in the living room just tops off the many features. Relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a fun day and watching the trees sway lazily with the breeze is so relaxing. This home is a 10 in our books!
