THE PROPERTY AND LOCATION:
The house is located on Lakeshore Drive (on the Lake side of Lakeshore Dr) 5 miles south of the Saugatuck city limits.
This 1+ acre property boasts a beautiful view of an orchard and woods and is within 200 yds to Lake Michigan and a public lake access point (*water and beach access only). We are also within walking distance via beach or Lakeshore Drive to West Side County Park with a large public beach. **We are not located directly on Lake Michigan.

* The beach and access point are not owned or managed by Orchard Beach House, LLC.

On many days you can hear the roar of Lake Michigan from the house and property. There is plenty of room to roam and enjoy the wildlife including birds, wild turkeys, deer, rabbits, and so much more.

We are situated in an area that offers the privacy and quiet of being in the Lakeshore area, forests and wild preserves while still being a quick 5-20min drive to the downtowns of Saugatuck, Douglas, Fennville, Glenn, South Haven and Holland.

Enjoy games on the beautiful grassy lawns or a short stroll down a beautiful sandy, tree canopied lane (approximately one block) to a Lake Michigan access point.

The lake access is one of the only access points to Lake Michigan in the area without stairs! A rare and helpful find for young children, the elderly or disabled. The access point can be used to access miles of lakeshore to swim, fish, walk, run or even launch your kayak or rowboat (*** sorry, no access to launch large boats or lounge on the beach). Enjoy the sparkling waters of Lake Michigan!

Just a short stroll north along the shoreline is a public beach at West Side County Park. This beach can be used for sunbathing, games and activities. The park contains a very large (630 ft.) public beach, playground and grassy area, approximately 2/10ths of a mile north on Lakeshore Drive or via a short (approx. 10-15 minutes) beach walk.

The city limits of Saugatuck/Douglas can be reached in about 5 minutes drive and the downtown shopping district in approximately 10 minutes or less.
Holland and South Haven are about 20 minute drive either north to Holland or south to South Haven.

SAUGATUCK/DOUGLAS:

Shopping, dining, art galleries and culture abound in this area. Both towns are picturesque villages with many turn of the century homes and buildings hosting unique shops, gourmet dining, and many art venues including theater, music and the visual arts. Please visit the town website for more information. www.saugatuck.com

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Kris and Romelio live in the northern Chicago suburbs. Mike and his three daughters reside in the western Chicago suburbs. We have owned Orchard Beach House since 2000. We enjoy relaxed weekend with friends and family near the shore of Lake Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
We love Lake Michigan's beautiful white sand beaches, fresh air, wildlife, and wonderful art scene. We can get away from the busy big city life and come here for peace and quiet. When we need more town life, we simply drive 5 minutes away to Saugatuck or Douglas. As soon as we walk into our home, you can feel the stress melt away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have the best of everything that the area has to offer. We are a short stroll to the beach, about 5-10 minutes drive to the shops of Saugatuck and Douglas, and situated between several nature preserves. Our property is quiet, private but close to everything!
