Manager info

About: The owners originally fell in love with Saugatuck and moved from Chicago. They brought the Inn and thought they could keep their night jobs and also run the Inn as a B & B during the day. They quickly realized that this would not work and put it in our rental program since it is an ideal home for family and group gatherings.

Why Saugatuck:
The home was built around 1874 and is one of the more historic homes in Saugatuck. It has warm hardwood floors, a charming wood paneled dining and game room and a living room with 10 ft ceiling. With its large living spaces and outdoor deck it is a wonderful place for gathering friends and family and enjoying their company.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This home provides individual sleeping and bathing privacy to large groups and many gathering places for family and friends social interaction The large parking area and home's location, just a few blocks from downtown, enables everyone to abandon their cars and walk everywhere throughout the City .
