Why Fran - best way to reach me is by call or text 616-566-8386 chose Ganges
We enjoy the area - this has been our home for 40 years. Saugatuck is not the typical small town. It is full of art galleries, activities at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts, live music, a brew pub, wonderful history museum, beautiful surroundings. We are close to all the action yet completely peaceful and private and right on the beach. The nice big grassy garden and bluff overlooking the lake are so welcoming during the long summer days and evenings, guests enjoy spending lots of time there, relaxing on the lake.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lovely lakeshore location offers direct access to your own private bluff view of Lake Michigan. Enjoy lounging on your private beach, long beach walks, and spectacular sunsets, and yes, moonsets!

Relax on the beach
My husband and I had a wonderful weeks stay. We spent time on the beach, enjoyed and evening fire, ate dinner looking at the lake while live music played next door, and just relaxed! We hope to make it back again next year, and would highly recommend it.

Cute Cottage in Charming Town
Had a wonderful stay at this cottage right on Lake Michigan! It is very cozy and literally steps down to a private beach with wonderful views for miles. Fran, the owner, is wonderful and available for local tips on restaurants and what to do. It is situated near town with easily drives to downtown Douglas & Saugatuck. The cottage is very clean with plenty of pillows and blankets if you get any chilly nights! This was my first time at the cottage and I'm already inquiring about a stay for next summer so I can enjoy the beach a little more.
We stayed at this little cabin for a week. It was just perfect for the two of us. The location, accommodations and hosts were all just fantastic! We would spend our evenings sitting in the red chairs overlooking the lake and just soaking in the view. Fran was the best hostess, giving us directions to a fantastic bakery and providing guidance on restaurants. We feel we've found the place we want to return to year after year. Plus, it's so close to all the towns you want to visit in SW Michigan. Thank you Fran and Mort for such a lovely cabin where we could relax, bike and enjoy our vacation!
We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation here. This is such a special and interesting area, we love it ourselves and enjoy helping you find the hidden gems. Thanks for your kind words!
My family had the perfect vacation at this lovely cottage! Amazing views of Lake Michigan from the cottage! The private beach was restful, scenic, and easy to get to!! The views from the bluff, especially the sunsets are beautiful! The cottage is in excellent condition and we had everything we needed. We would definitely love to come back in the future!
