              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: My husband and I purchased the cottage in 2004, which is located next to our home. We have made many renovations, and kept the cottage in excellent condition. This spring 2010, we put in a new kitchen window and slider in the bedroom. The interior was given a fresh coat of paint. We enjoy meeting our renters from Italy, England, Canada, and many of the states and would love to make your acquaintance.

              Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
              We have lived in our home on Lake Michigan Bluff for 26 years. Living here is a beautiful experience regardless of the weather. We have watched many amazing sunsets as well as the strong storms. The cottage property joins our home property. We felt we wanted a place for people to come and experience the beautiful lake, the serenity of the location, and most of all the beach. We are open for seasonal renters during the spring, summer and fall months, and would like a long term renter for the winter.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Serenity Sunset Cottage is a peaceful, relaxing place for any family, we encourage families to rent this property and if there are parents, grandparents or friends there is our little cottage which sleeps 2 right on the same property. Please see our VRBO # 287864 for the small cottage.
