About the property

House, Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6): Additional Cottage Sleeps 2

Nicest location in town! Beautiful historic Italianate home built in 1868. The 'Pond Winslow' homestead has been awarded the prestigious Heritage Preservation award for Honor and Respect by the Saugatuck Douglas Historical Society. Located on the hill over looking the town square. The home has been beautifully updated, including kitchen, newly remodeled bathrooms and restored old growth hardwood flooring through out. First floor includes, dine in kitchen with laundry, living room, dining room, half bath, bed room (queen bed) with en suite full bath, and glassed/screened in porch. Second floor has master bedroom (queen bed) with private sun porch, 3rd bedroom (full on bottom, single on top) and full bath. Kitchen is fully out fitted - just bring your favorite food and beverages. Bedrooms and baths are complete with linens. Beautiful flag stone patio with large built in fire pit, lots of grilling accessories. 'Up North' feel in town! In laws want to come too? Ask about the additional cottage with room for two!

Quiet, peaceful location surrounded by mature trees and tranquil gardens, yet just a few steps from the thriving downtown with all of its associated activities: Shops, Antique Stores, Art Galleries, Restaurants, Bars and Coffee shops. Utilize the chain ferry and walk or ride your bike to the beautiful Oval Beach. Easy drive to the many local golf courses, Fenn Valley Vineyards, Crane's Apple Orchard, Dune Schooners and other area attractions.

Great ‘girls’ getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect winter getaway! The house is quaint, with comfortable beds, large eating areas, and interesting artwork. It was a quick and easy walk to restaurants and shops. The owners were fabulous to work with. We will definitely return!

Beautiful home! Great location!

Very clean and the driveway was plowed and the walkway was shoveled when we arrived! We loved our stay. Perfect location to walk to everything. Thank you for sharing your home.

Wonderful!

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house for New Years Eve. There was nothing that we didn’t like. It was well furnished and we didn’t need to bring any extras with us. We will definitely come back again . Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Perfect little winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place exactly what we were looking for. Our group consisted of two kids under 5, my wife and I, and grandparents. Everyone was happy. There's a great big dining room table to do puzzles, a little antique fireplace for ambiance, and a great view overlooking downtown. There's also a nice Sony flatscreen smart TV with Netflix and Chromecast, and a Sonos speaker system throughout the first floor! The first floor master bedroom was really convenient for grandma and grandpa, too.

Access into town was easy via the footpath just down the road, and it also made for a great makeshift sled hill for the kids. It snowed just about nonstop during our 4 night stay.

We really enjoyed our stay and are already tying to figure out when we can return. Maybe in warmer weather so we can enjoy the outdoor fire pit and grill. Seriously, this place is perfect!

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
