Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the quaint downtown of Douglas, this house will be your home away from home. Steps from restraunts, shops, coffee house, art galleries, parks, and more. Just a few minute drive or bike ride to Oval Beach. Douglas is the place you will want to stay while visiting the area of Saugatuck, an upscale neighborhood with a lot of pride. Douglas is known as the Villaige of Friendliness.

The ranch style cottage has been completely remodelled; everything is new starting with the floorplan! This house has an open concept in the main area, showcasing granite and stainless in the kitchen. Granite countertops complete each bathroom. The master bedroom includes its own private master bath.

Guests can enjoy two separate sitting areas outside of the house; one can see glimpses of the Kalamazoo Harbor from the west facing deck.

great location

  • 3 of 5

Perfect location to walk in Douglas. Nice space and very clean but beds/mattresses and bedding need upgrading. Mattresses were old. TV was way too small to see from couch. Owner very friendly and accommodating

Beautiful home just blocks from downtown Douglas!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed here for a weekend and we had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful, clean and well appointed. We were able to bring our two small dogs with us which was greatly appreciated since the home owner loves dogs. The house had everything we needed and Greg was on hand in case there was anything else we might have required. There was more than enough room and the kitchen was huge and had everything we needed for preparing meals. The front and back decks were lovely for enjoying morning coffee or drinks in the evening. Downtown was just a few blocks away and the homes in the area were all well kept and it was a gorgeous walk. The downtown area is so cute and quaint with a bakery and cafe and several art galleries. There was also a winery/art gallery at the other end of the street we didn't make it to, but maybe next time. I would highly recommend this home if you are looking to visit the area.

Great place! Plenty of room.

Really enjoyed our stay. The host was welcoming, and helpful. The home was clean, and comfortable. With 4 people, it was nice to have 2 bathrooms. Would stay there again.

It was clean, well maintained- all good.

  • 4 of 5

I did not think for the price we paid that we should have had to strip the beds. Empty trash & run dishwasher. That is a fire hazard- my husband is a firefighter and dishwasher #1 fire cause.

Clean and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home is much larger than most rentals....great for a family or big group. Prime location. Nice, helpful owner. The only drawback was the master bedroom mattress. It was hard and uncomfortable. Other than that, no complaints. We enjoyed the house and Douglas/Saugatuck.
