"For our family of four, this was the perfect getaway location. The pool was great for small kids and the proximity to downtown Douglas, Saugatuck, and the public beaches could not be better. It's roughly 15 minute from Fennville as well so a trip to Crane's Orchard was easy. The ability to cook as family worked well for us too. We would definitely come back again."

"We had a wonderful weekend. Loved the accommodations! We enjoyed the binder filled with local recommendations and attractions. The owner got back to us quickly with the answers to my questions and very accommodating. The home is very clean and comfortable, however, we wished there was more comfy seating in the living area. The beech, just a short walk down the road, is fantastic.
We has a wonderful stay."

"This was our first time staying in the cottage and it surely will not be our last! Tricia was so easy to work with and our stay was perfect. We enjoyed walking on the beach in the morning and sitting on the deck in the evening! There are some many fun things to do in the area and we loved the breweries and wineries! We will definitely be returning! Thanks, Tricia!
Michele and Tony"

"Sitting in the large screened porch, up on the bluff, high in the tall trees on both sides with the stunning expanse of Lake Michigan and big sky directly in front of you - it's perfect! The lake can change daily from peaceful ripples lapping the shore to wild roaring whitecaps, and everything in between. Who needs TV when you can watch this show! Waking up each morning in the alcove bed with that view in front of me, always a pleasure to see and hear what Mother Nature has to offer that day. Even if it rains you can still enjoy watching Lake Michigan from the covered porch. The beach is very private and great for long walks or just plain sitting still. The southeastern shore of Lake Michigan offers up some of the best sunsets ever. Whether you're seeking solitude and communion with nature, or prefer an active vacation with family and friends, this location has it all. The towns up and down this part of the Lake Michigan shore, known collectively as Harbor Country, have something for everyone. Visit harborcountry.org online for lots of helpful information. There are a variety of good local restaurants - no carbon copy franchises! The Playhouse kitchen, though, is very well equipped for creating any meal. Nearby towns offer excellent food shopping if you want to eat in or picnic on the beach. Experience a local wine tasting just a few minutes drive away. Some of Michigan's wines are surprisingly good. There is a lovely tennis court on the Playhouse property shared by neighboring houses. Bring or rent water sport equipment and your bicycles. Go hiking in nearby state/local parks. Even if you feel the need to stay connected to cyberspace, the Playhouse has wifi so you can research all that there is to do in Harbor Country. The Playhouse is a great space meant for fun and relaxation, ease and comfort - very comfy beds, plenty of pillows and extra blankets/quilts if it gets chilly at night. Plus there's that beautiful stone fireplace! All was very clean and ready for my arrival, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. The owner responds quickly to any questions or concerns and clearly cares about this amazing vacation property. I've been visiting this area for many years and am so glad I discovered the Playhouse. I'll be back for sure."
