Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Charming single-family home vacation rental on cul-de-sac in Douglas, located at 3060 Park Drive, south off Center Street. With a short walk to the Douglas Public Beach on Lake Michigan, you will not be disappointed when you arrive to relax in this lovely home.

You will feel right at home from the moment you walk in - whether it be from your special welcome gift to the many bathroom and toiletry amenities provided so you can relax and enjoy your stay.

With 1300 square feet of living space you definitely will not feel cramped. The Pottery Barn furnishings complemented by personally chosen antiques abound throughout this professionally decorated home. See why this property is fully booked every Summer season!

Main Living Area: The Living Room area opens onto a screened porch that runs the length of the home. Enjoy relaxing on the porch, with its wicker love seat, chairs, tables and reading lamp. Abounding with light from the 3 sets of French Doors, the front living area feels open and peaceful, bringing the outdoors inside (don't be surprised if you see a family of deer outside the front porch).

Second Floor Living Area: On the 2nd level, there are 2 additional bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The second bedroom has 1 queen bed with plenty of closet space. The third bedroom, nick-named the 'Cowboy Room' contains 2 twin beds. Both bedrooms are bright and charming. The 2nd floor full bath is large and spacious.

Area Info: You'll love the location of this home, within walking distance of Lake Shore Drive where you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and the lovely Douglas public beach (0.4 miles). It's only a short drive or an easy bike ride to downtown Douglas or Saugatuck for dining, shopping, or boating. Douglas, Michigan is the proud recipient of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Distinctive Destination Award. Douglas is approximately 10 miles south of Holland, Michigan.

Why Brett Locascio chose Southwest

Some close friends of mine also own second homes in the Douglas and Saugatuck communities. With its beautiful beaches, terrific restaurants, and nearby entertainment, Douglas and Saugatuck is worlds away from Chicago!

Great Mini-vacation at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Brett's cottage worked out great. Everything worked and it was neat and clean. I had one question about internet access. Brett answered the phone and walked me through the process. No problem. The area has lots to do. We really enjoyed our get away mini-vacation. Thanks Brett!

Picture perfect, private, and SO relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, starting from the moment we pulled into the driveway. The landscaping of the property was beautiful and we loved sitting in the back with the firepit in the evenings, and on the front porch having coffee in the mornings. We could not have been happier!

Great property, beautiful landscape, good location, just needs a little time.

  • 4 of 5

Douglas is a place where anything less than 50 years old is new. This is a brand new place that is very, very nice but just needs time to get into the Douglas feel. But overall the place is great. It could use an outdoor hose or system to "de-sand" such as an outdoor shower. The kitchen is a little cramped but is basically manageable. The beds and bathooms are great and the outdoor area is lovely. Very nice place, especially if "rustic" is not high on your list.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to respond! We are flattered you think the cottage is brand new given it is going on 8 years:) However we pride ourselves on keeping everything well maintained so we are happy to hear guests see that as well! We are sorry you missed the outdoor hose on the patio. There is also a bathroom right off the entrance with a shower to rinse off as well. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back!

A Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Douglas was a taste of charm and feel of a small Cape Cod.....We found the home to be impeccably clean, well stocked and very well decorated, it felt as if you are staying at your relatives house....The front screened porch made for additional living place and wonderful morning spot for your am coffee and evening cocktail.....I am very fussy with how clean and how well decorated the rental houses must be and thoroughly research before a final decision is made for our vacation stay.....We will most definitely be returning next year......Thank you for keeping your vacation property so well loved.....
