About Bonnie & Ron Wilkins
This picture is Ron & I at the top of Mt. Baldhead, a high dune in Saugatuck. Yes, we climbed all 282 steps to this deck on the top. Lake Kalamazoo is in the background. Great view. Lake Michigan is just west of Mt. Baldhead. Ron & I ran Wilkins Hardware Co., a unique hardware store with exceptional customer service, old-fashioned friendliness, and modern convenience and selection in the entire ground floor of the building. We made our home on the second floor, raising our 3 kids. Now we share this wonderful space with you, our guests. Welcome, and enjoy.
Bonnie & Ron Wilkins purchased this Apartment in 1985

Great for a family or group!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The apartment was perfect for us; a great location and lots of space for the 4 of us. Don't miss the kitchen shop downstairs!
The location of the building in town was ideal...walking distance from everything.
The loft was beautiful and fun! I would stay here again. Bonnie and Ron made sure everything was enjoyable for us.
This place was magical. My girlfriend described it as "her perfect Hallmark Christmas." Thanks for sharing this spot!
fun place to stay
Perfect for our girls weekend...could walk to shopping and restaurants. And only 20 minutes from shopping in Holland. Enjoyed it very much.
Eclectic and Delightful
This property is in the downtown Saugatuck area and perfect for parking your car and walking just about anywhere. Set on the second story of the old hardware building, it's a gem for it's combination of comfort and eclectic decor. We settled in nicely and made ourselves at home. We'd planned to make a few meals here but the area is so restaurant rich, that we ate out most of the time and very affordably. I'd definitely return to this property!
Enjoy Being downtown and view from the Loft
We have stayed twice at the loft, and enjoy the fact that everything we need is provided for. The only complaint is that we found the mattress to be so soft, that neither of us slept well, and rolled to the middle every time we turned over during the night. That alone would prevent us from staying again. WE love the view and enjoy seeing the people coming and going from the Post Office, just like a movie in small town America. WE also enjoy being able to walk anywhere and always having a parking space! If not for the bed, the accommodations are great.
For more than 100 years, tourists have sought refuge from the stress of everyday life in the Saugatuck/ Douglas area - a peaceful place where no one rushes and no one rushes you. They can mellow out in surroundings reminiscent of vintage, small-town America, whose hallmarks are scenic beauty and a unique collection of shops, restaurants and art galleries. For those who want to mix relaxation with excitement, the area offers a year-round calendar of fun-filled activities and events. No wonder the National Trust for Historical Preservation designated these towns as one of the nation's Dozen Distinctive Destinations! The two towns, nestled among towering sand dunes, are bordered by the winding Kalamazoo River on its way to Lake Michigan. Activities abound on the two waterways. Both towns maintain public beaches on Lake Michigan for swimmers and sunbathers. Saugatuck's Oval Beach has been rated by Condé Nast's Traveler Magazine as one of the 25 best shorelines in the world and one of America's 11 great Beachtowns. National Geographic Traveler Magazine agreed, rating it one of the top two freshwater beaches in America. More recently, the Chicago Tribune ranked it number one out of the Midwest's five best beaches and Life Magazine judged it Best Dune Town. In addition to finding unique clothing and accessories for your self and for gifts, and seeing a kaleidoscopic of artwork in the galleries, we love to hike the dunes in Saugatuck Dunes State Park and Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area. We also enjoy touring the winery, farms and studios in next door harvest country. Kids enjoy sifting in the sand searching for stones & shells, including lucky stones. For more info, check out the Lucky Stone Tavern within Saugatuck Brewing Co.
