Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Butterfly Cottage is a truly unique cottage located in the Historic district of Saugatuck. Casual cottage styling mixed with colorful spaces, this cottage makes for a comfortable stay in Saugatuck. This quaint cottage will accommodate 8 or 9 people comfortably.

The main house has two bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and the other with a full. The bungalow, just steps away in the backyard, serves as the third bedroom and has heat and air conditioning. The bungalow has a queen size bed and also bunk beds. The bungalow has a full bath that was added in 2011.

Located in the heart of the village district, plan on walking to all the in-town locations. The river is just a few hundred feet away with shops, restaurants and parks located within a 3-10 minute walk. If you are familiar with Saugatuck, Butterfly cottage is a stone's throw from the public boat launch, Gleason's market and Ida Reds.

We are happy to be one of the few places to welcome well mannered pets in our cottage. An added plus, the back yard is fully fenced.

Our home was fully booked all but 2 nights during the summer season this year. We are beginning to fill up for 2018, so please contact us early if your dates are limited. During June, July and August, we try to limit ( with some flexibility ) our rental periods to full weeks running Saturday to Saturday.

About Scott Sanderson

We purchased Butterfly Cottage in 1999 as a weekend getaway. Saugatuck is such a unique community,with a lot to offer. We enjoyed our weekends in Saugatuck so much, we sold our house in Kalamazoo and moved out to Butterfly Cottage full time from 2001 through 2003. When we decided to start a family, we made our cottage available for seasonal rentals for a few years. During this time, it was nearly always full and we enjoyed reading the comments left by our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great relaxing time here in Saugatuck as always. It's a nice little get away. The Butterfly Cottage is nicely put together...we love the color schemes. Of course the best parts are Kilwin's Ice Cream and Oval Beach. Wonderful time...hope to be back in this cottage next year. Thank You!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Butterfly Cottage. The location was great, and cottage itself was fantastic. It was clean, nicely decorated, and the bungalow in the back was perfect. The landlord was attentive and responded immediately when we blew a fuse, oops! We are planning to go back to Saugatuck next summer and our whole family says, "Book this place again!"

Wonderful vacation spot for a family

  • 5 of 5

I vacationed with my whole family last week at the Butterfly Cottage and it was perfect. It's decorated so cute, the bungalow in back was perfect for my daughter and her husband and their two kids, and the two bedrooms in the main cottage were right for my husband and me, and then my other daughter, her husband and their baby. being able to walk everywhere (except the beach) worked really well for us, and the large outdoor table was great for eating out as well as fun activities like painting and games. On top of all of that, the owner is very responsive and helpful. We would rent again!

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was so pretty. We enjoyed the walking distance to town. All the shops and eateries were amazing. We will be back next year.

Great rental in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were there 16 nights with kids and grandkids rotating in and out over the time. From 4yr old to 73yr old everyone loved the place. Scott was very prompt with all communication. The bungalow with its own spacious bath was a big plus. Location was perfect. Quiet residential area just 3 blocks from downtown. Even the dog Jack enjoyed himself and behaved like a gentleman.
