About the Property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12 in beds)

Great vacation rental in best Saugatuck location! One of just a few private homes on the Oval Beach Road, this classic hundred-year-old cottage with guest house is nestled into the side of a wooded sand dune. In a great location surrounded by woods and walking trails, Oval Beach Cottage is steps from the Kalamazoo River, Saugatuck's chain ferry, and a 1/2 mile down the road from the beautiful Oval Beach.

Spread out over three floors, there are four bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the main house. A fabulous wrap-around screen porch offers tree-top views of the river and town of Saugatuck, and there is a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. A large living/dining area with a cozy wood burning stove makes this a great house for entertaining, and country antiques add to Oval Beach Cottage’s warmth and rustic charm.

Guest House:
Just up a wooded path is the guest house (Acorn), a cozy one-room log cabin that is perfect for two. Acorn has barn-beam cathedral ceilings, a fireplace, small kitchen and bath, and a deck high up in the tree-tops.

This is truly a delightful spot

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We love this very special area of the country. The woods, the dunes, the beach, the river & ferry, the farms, the antique stores, farmer's markets, light houses, fog horns, great restaurants, art galleries and the historical charm. Great fishing too!

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck, MI, USA:
Our family has owned cottages in Saugatuck for over 75 years! Wanted a classic summer cottage in a great location. We think ours is very special.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is hard to beat the location of this property. You can walk just a few steps to the Chain Ferry that crosses the Kalamozoo River and puts you in the heart of downtown Saugatuck (beats the parking woes!). Wooded walking trails, views of the sailboats coming down the river and super close to the beach! As the last house on Oval Beach Road, the beach is less than a 1/2 mile.
