Property description

Bear's Cabin is a charming genuine log home surrounded by woods and situated in a small grouping of homes at Hidden Dunes on quiet and pristine Goshorn Lake in Saugatuck, MI. Centrally located, this large (four bedroom, 1,750 square feet) home is the perfect place to relax while exploring Saugatuck's beaches and many other attractions that this quaint resort town has to offer. The cabin has brand new furnishings, is very well appointed, and has a wonderful scent of pine. Enjoy the delightful Saugatuck summer season or book an off-season stay in order to enjoy colorful fall foliage, hiking, golfing, or cross country skiing.

Hidden Dunes' beachfront and dock on a bay of the clear, serene, no-wake Goshorn Lake are available for your enjoyment. Kick off your shoes and walk to the top of the dune to take in the beautiful vistas of the lake. Oval Beach, ranked as one of top shorelines in the United States, and Saugatuck Dunes State Park, are both nearby.

Use the cabin's large screened-in porch for meals, conversation, and for enjoying the lingering twilight hours. Before drifting off to sleep, unwind in the whirlpool tub in the upstairs bath. The house features central air, a wood-burning fireplace, and a washer and dryer for guest use. A gas grill and 4 bicycles (2 adult and 2 teen/preteen) are at your disposal.

Goshorn Lake is the perfect setting for swimming, canoeing, and fishing. The fine shops, restaurants, and art galleries of downtown Saugatuck are only a few minutes away. Only ten miles down the road is Holland, Michigan, home to Hope College and the famous Tulip Time Festival. Visit Holland's scenic Lake Macatawa resort area, beautiful State Park, and wonderful downtown selection of upscale shops, microbrewery, and restaurants.

Renters will need to bring soaps and personal items. The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, pillows, and blankets. For your convenience, we have linens and towels on site for guest use. Guests are limited to 8 and only two vehicles may be kept at the property. Nearby off-site parking available for additional vehicles.

Besides the great beaches nearby (Oval Beach & Saugatuck Dunes State Park), Holland Michigan's inland lake, Lake Macatawa, has a resort feel and has a channel connecting it to Lake Michigan, where the Holland State Park and its famous red light house are situated.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I attended college in the area and grew to love the surrounding area. I particularly like the beaches and the resort feel of the towns of Saugatuck and Holland. Summer sunsets here can't be beat.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck, MI, USA:
A great location; it's surrounded by sand dunes and trees and only steps away from Goshorn Lake. You can walk or bike the two miles to Saugatuck on a paved path.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The setting is beautiful - the cabin is nestled between woods and sand dunes and is a minute walk from a bay of Goshorn Lake. Renters have access to a pier and beach front and can climb the bay's 'mini' sand dune to catch a great view of Goshorn Lake and the surrounding unspoiled dunes. Previous renters have commented on how quiet the setting is and how convenient it is to the town of Saugatuck and Oval Beach. Good golf courses are also nearby. The setting is truly unique.
