              About: The owners originally fell in love with Saugatuck and moved from Chicago.

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 House:
