                                                          This is a beautiful home in immaculate condition. Wonderful Lake Michigan property, as described in a quiet neighborhood, very close to Saugatuck and Douglas. Owner offered great communication and detail; timely response.

                                                          Highly recommended.

                                                          You deserve to treat yourself to a stay at this home!

                                                          Linda S.

                                                          We had a cousins' weekend at this lovely home in Douglas, MI. The home was beautifully furnished and more than met all of our needs. We actually felt we should have planned to stay longer to appreciate all the home and the surrounding area has to offer. We were able to use the well furnished kitchen to make family meals and had the option of eating at the dining table or on the porch. Both areas overlooked the lake and the sound of the waves created a great back drop for conversation. The location of the home gave us privacy and easy beach access (although the stairs to the lake required a strong will to go down and come back up). The proximity to Douglas and Saugatuk, both cute little towns, made exploring the area easy day trips. At the end of each day we could all be together in the family room and then head to our well appointed and very comfortable beds. If weather had permitted, we would have made use of the kayaks. But, we did get an amazing sunset on our first night and witnessed the waves crashing to shore another night. At the end of our stay, we felt we had picked the perfect home for our weekend. Tara was easy to work with and gave clear information for our stay in their home. I would highly recommend this beautiful Lake Michigan home to anyone looking for a place to enjoy the lake and surrounding region.

                                                          Tranquil retreat, immaculately clean, great location!

                                                          This spotlessly clean and comfortable home is stocked with every supply you should need for a relaxing, peaceful lakeside retreat. It was the perfect home base for our multigenerational family to enjoy kayaking and swimming off the beach in front of the home, biking up and down the coastline, leisurely shopping and exploring the many nearby boutiques and art galleries, and picking peaches and apples at the local farms. There are loads of games and toys for the kids and beautiful sunsets for the adults. We will be back!

                                                          We had a wonderful time in this beautiful, well appointed and comfortable home only minutes from quaint towns of Saugatuck and Douglas . Tara was easy to communicate with and everything was crystal clear. Much thought was considered to make guests feel welcome. It was impeccably clean, both inside and out. I'm anxious to return!

                                                          Fabulous Lake MI Getaway!

                                                          This home is absolutely lovely and has been so well stocked. The DeGeers are wonderful and thought of so much detail to make for an unforgettable family vacation. The view is stunning. The beach is lovely. I just cannot say enough. We hope to return someday.

                                                          Beautiful home, perfect location

                                                          This is a fantastic vacation home located right on Lake Michigan with gorgeous views. Easy bike ride or drive into Saugatuck/Douglass. Enjoy the beach during the day and a beautiful walk the top of the dune in the evening. The house is big enough to comfortably accommodate a large group or two families.
