About Kenneth A. Morris

Hello, Happy Family Picture---traveling somewhere????. Graduated from Saugtuck High School in 1981. Family has owned the house since 1978. Bought the house from my mom 20 years back or so, planned to live there, but life got in the way!!! Get back when we can, our loss is your gain!

Kenneth A. Morris purchased this House in 1978

Why Kenneth A. Morris chose Saugatuck

It is the house I grew up in, would never let it go... come visit and you will see why!!!

What makes this House unique

Wonderfull old house that overlooks downtown, at least when the leaves are not on the tress. Very enjoyable as you can walk to everything in town, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Park the car at the house, and forget about it for the rest of your stay. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are all up to date and in good clean condition. Additionally, local management and over site of the property ensures none of the unforeseen problems that can result from long distance owners that may not be fully aware of the day to day situation.

                                                          We have stayed at a LOT of places in Saugatuck, but this one is definitely a 'must book again'. The location was perfect. The house was adorable and had such character. Love all the windows! A lot of sunlight comes through and it is perfect for sitting at the kitchen table and watching the birds. The 2 1/2 bathrooms are nice to have with a large group of people. The owner is extremely accommodating and quick to respond to any questions. Thank you so much for the pleasant stay!
