The kitchen is equipped with all the appliances and utensils needed. Microwave, toaster, mixer, blender...etc.

For the kids and family, ride on dune rides or play on the nationally acclaimed white sandy beaches of Lake Michigan’s Oval Beach, or perhaps discover how the Dutch make wooden shoes in Holland MI.

The other guest room is cottage/nautical with two twin beds. All bed linens and towels are included. The living room has a home theater system with a selection of DVDs and several board games.

About Liam Bruno

I love visit this place to decompress. I live in Chicago and love the peace and quite of this home. I enjoy working on this property and am continuously working to improve it.

Liam Bruno purchased this House in 2007

Why Liam Bruno chose Fennville

Saugatuck area is an oasis from my work and condo in Chicago. I feel totally recharged even after a very short stay. I grew in in Kalamazoo and visited Saugatuck many times. I have always known it was a great place!

                                                      Wonderful place for a couples getaway!

                                                      Jamie V.

                                                      Liams place was amazing and had everything we needed and more. Beds were super comfy (which is rare for me to find anything better than my bed) and the whole place was very cozy. We enjoyed cooking on the grill and had a game night on Friday. Saturday we enjoyed downtown Saugatauk, pet parade for St. Party's Day, the brewery, shopping and drinks at the Wicks Park bar. It was so nice to get away within a 2.5 hr drive and feel so relaxed. Liam was very responsive to the minimal questions we had. Will definitely be going back in the summer to enjoy the gorgeous back yard.

                                                      An enjoyable weekend

                                                      We stayed for the weekend for an event in Holland. It was an easy drive to our event and a nice getaway. It was a great place to stay. It was very clean, had everything we needed, and really comfy beds!

                                                      Lovely home and back yard; clean & quiet!

                                                      Fran A.

                                                      This is a great getaway home; I'd recommend it to anyone who loves nature and privacy. It is very clean, well stocked kitchen w/plenty of wine glasses, a bubblegum matchine and even a little piano! Beds are comfy; nice skylight in master bath. Back yard was beautiful. Unfortunately for us it rained during our stay so we couldn't enjoy the outdoor grill or fireplace. ...BUT we cracked open the sliding door to the screened-in porch to listen to the rain...it was beautiful and relaxing! Liam was an excellent host and very inattentive. The home is nestled on a beautiful wooded lot which makes you feel like you've escaped the city HOWEVER it's only 5-8 min. scenic drive to Douglas/Saugatuck (respectively). Go stay there, you won't be disappointed!

                                                      Fabulous Stay!

                                                      Lori Ann H.Muncie, Indiana

                                                      Liam the owner of the property was great to work with! The property itself was exactly what we needed and more! The large soaking bathtub in the master bedroom was a plus and very enjoyable! The decor was excellent and stylish and the linens were comfy and everything was so clean. There was much attention to detail when it came to the kitchen being fully stocked! We used the outdoor grill to grill some steaks and relaxed in the beautifully designed garden in the back yard and enjoyed the mature trees. It was oh so quiet, private and serene. Everything was close by and we enjoyed exploring the beaches and dunes and we walked for miles. We would definitely come back and while this was our couples get -away, the home is large enough, and we will bring our family next time !

                                                      Wonderful!
