Property description

Become a part of the Saugatuck community in this spacious home. The convenient in-town location is a great place to gather after a fun day spent exploring the area. Located just two blocks from the main downtown of Saugatuck and across the street from Willow Park and the Kalamazoo River, it’s easy for everyone in your group to branch out on their own.

Two separate wings of the house divide the five bedrooms, offering lots of privacy for various group arrangements. The east wing accommodates the master bedroom which has a Queen Bed. The second and third bedrooms each have a Double Bed. The full bath on this wing offers a tub/shower combination. The west wing has one bedroom with two Twin Beds and another with a Double Bed. The spacious full bath on this side has a Jacuzzi tub and separate stall shower.

The colorful vaulted living room with a gas fireplace and flat screen TV/DVD provides plenty of space to relax after a long day. A separate dining area and game room offers comfortable seating for six with room to squeeze in a few more.

Not quite ready to come inside? The multi-level large wrap-around deck offers extra seating and two additional outdoor dining areas. Drop the blinds for some extra privacy and you have your own outdoor oasis.

The galley kitchen offers all your modern conveniences for preparing a meal to fuel your group for the day. The Weber gas grill on the deck is a welcome addition when dining al fresco.

Forget about your car at the end of the day as all shopping and dining is just a short stroll away. A short 5-7 minute drive will get you to immaculate Douglas Beach and world-famous Oval Beach. For the more adventurous, hop on the Chain Ferry just down the street (feet, strollers, bikes and dogs allowed). Climb the steps at Mount Baldhead for amazing views of the harbor or Lake Michigan. Continue on just a bit and you’re at the beach!

Car: Not Necessary

No matter whether you want to be active or relaxed, Saugatuck has something to offer, with fabulous shopping, art galleries and dining options, as well as bike paths, hiking trails, and beaches for old and young alike. Minutes to the south is Fennville, with its you-pick orchards, vineyards, wineries and fine dining.

Rainy day… have no fear. You are a short drive away from Holland with its rich Dutch heritage. Known for its springtime Tulip Festival, Holland also offers a vast array of recreational activities, visual and performing arts, Dutch attractions, magnificent beaches and an award-winning downtown with exceptional shops, galleries, and eateries. Drive a bit further and you’ll reach Grand Rapids – Michigan’s 2nd largest city. Here you can find all the excitement of a larger city with wonderful dining and world class museums including the Ford Presidential Library and Meijer Gardens.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We're a family of six (plus one golden retriever) with deep roots in Michigan. We live in the Detroit metropolitan area, and break away to the beaches of Michigan every chance we get.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
We bought this vacation home because we love the west side of the state - and Saugatuck in particular, having visited many times over the years. An added bonus to Saugatuck is its location, equidistant to Detroit (where most of the family lives) and Chicago (where our oldest son now resides). We have spent the past two years updating the house, creating a real family home. We love spending time there and hope you will too!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Blue-By-You is in a perfect location; town is just a short stroll - yet just far enough that you still have privacy at the height of the summer season. The blinds on the front deck allow for complete privacy as you relax on the spacious outdoor sitting area. Don't forget your camping hammock - you can hang it between the two large trees on the front lawn. Five bedrooms, what a luxury - no more than two to a bedroom and you have plenty of room for 10. Located just around the corner, the Chain Ferry is a great way to cross the river and get to the beach by foot -if you don't mind climbing a couple hundred steps and running down the sand dunes. If you prefer to drive, Douglas Beach and Oval Beach are only minutes away. We love our house, and are thrilled to be able to share it with you.
