Car: Recommended

walking distance to Douglas Beach

From Great Lakes Boating magazine - Saugatuck, Michigan: Saugatuck, known as The Art Coast of Michigan, is nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan. The area includes many attractions that will make your boating adventure exciting long after you disembark. Try touring the Fenn Valley Vineyards and Winery or the Historic Felt Mansion. The Express Yourself Art Barn and the Crane Orchards are popular stops, and foodies will love the fine dining at Distinctive Dining. If you want to lounge by the beach, Oval Beach is the place. Rather partake in something more adventurous? Then check out the dune rides or horseback riding.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Douglas, MI, USA:
While visiting the Douglas and Saugatuck area in the late summer of 2010, friends John, Judy and Greg were driving around checking out the area and specifically this fantastic neighborhood. We weren't really looking to tour any homes, but rather get a sense of the area. However, when we happened upon this cute cottage with the fantastic pine shutters, we were all immediately drawn it. The stars were in alignment and we toured the home the following day and were smitten. While much of the cottage retains it's original 1960's charm, tasteful updates have been made where needed and we welcome your suggestions to make Shady Pines Cottage an even more enjoyable and pleasant place to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Simply put - location, location, location! Shady Pines Cottage is located only steps away from pristine Douglas Beach and a short bike ride or drive from world-class Oval Beach. Regardless of what we are doing, walking over to the beach to enjoy the sunset is a must. Also, waking up to the birds chirping or simply enjoying the tranquility of the woods, including deer and fox walking through the front yard, is a nice respite from city living. Being able to leave your car parked and bike or walk around is a great feeling.
