Why PATRICIA chose Saugatuck

We love the are and want you to love it too, so we have tried to build a house with everything so you wil come away with fond memories too.

What makes this house unique

Saugatuck.Why? Because its steps, literally from down town /water. The site is the site of the former high school, so the students after class would run down the steps from this residential neighborhood to the only working soda fountain drug store in the midwest and weather permiitng, go for a dip in the water. .We feel its the best combination ,Quiet peaceful and walk down the steps to town and water. A winner for you!

Another lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

After spending New Years at this lovely home, my husband and I came back for Easter with our two little dogs and the house was even better than it was New Years! The furniture in the bonus family room had been updated - the family room is already a bonus room and the updated furniture looks great. Fresh flowers were waiting for us on arrival - it is little touches like this that really make a stay great. Once again, the dogs enjoyed the spacious yard and we enjoyed the convenience to town. We will definitely be returning again!

Great New Years at this Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two little dogs for New Years and absolutely loved it. The location was great, the yard was wonderful for our dogs and the house was more spacious than we expected. We loved having two fireplaces and multiple televisions (so my husband could always have a football game on). The pictures really do not do the place justice! The 2-3 minute walk into town is so easy and lovely. We especially appreciated all of the nice touches from the owner - the house was decorated for the holidays and we were greeted with fresh flowers and Evan Williams egg nog on the counter when we arrived. We will definitely be back and will recommend this place to friends!

Great house with a King size bed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two dogs for a weekend getaway. The house is located just on top of the hill and is a very quick and easy walk to the main strip.

We have taken five trips to Saugatuck over the last eight years and this was our favorite house! The house is in excellent condition and is very well provisioned. There are directions for everything from the light switches to the bedding and everything in between. It was nice not having to guess and we quickly settled in for a relaxing weekend.

The house is also much larger than we expected from the pictures and gave us more than enough space. Also, it is one of the very rare houses in the Saugatuck area that has a King size bed. For my 6'5" husband, it is a definite plus.

The yard was very well maintained and roomy for our two dogs to run around and play.

Patricia was super responsive and was excellent to work with.

We hope to go back again next year and would highly recommend this spot to anyone!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

Our family ,including our two little dogs, loved this place. It's very charming, and the gardens are much more lavish than these pictures show. My son & husband enjoyed the pool ; very refreshing,and heated! The home is spotless and comfortable.The appliances are high end, and easy to use.Patricia is a very gracious hostess.There's plenty of room for everyone,inside and out.

Sister's getaway

  • 5 of 5

We do a sister's trip every year. This year we decided to go somewhere closer to home so we didn't need to fly. We had such a nice time. The house is perfect. The beds are very comfortable and so is this house. The owner supplies everything that you will need. The backyard was very inviting and so very beautiful. The pool was nice and refreshing since Lake MI was only 54 degrees while we were there. The house is located so that you can walk into town in just minutes. Saugatuck is such a cute little town and everyone was so friendly. The bathrooms are small but adequate. My bathrooms at home are small too so that was no problem. If you want to watch TV there are not a lot of channels, but we didn't go on vacation to watch TV. The owner is very nice and wants to make sure that you have a good time. The house is very, very clean. The requests the owner asks of you on your departure are no more than what is asked of you if you rent a condo on the ocean. Would stay there again.

Owner's Response: THANK YOU SO MUCH! You are all welcome back any time. Thank you for caring for the home as your own. Because of wonderful guest like you were are able to offer best rates for all the amenities. no need to spend money on repairs. We decided to use space on living areas but enough space for vanities and moving around in the bath rooms. 5x4 and 6x5.. We think it is so beautiful sisters can enjoy each other. Take care and God bless.

Quiet, dog-friendly retreat, 2 blocks from it all

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was our first experience using HomeAway or any of those other similar sites. My wife and I would like to thank the owner for making the experience simple, straightforward and painless. Now, on to the property.

The house is situated just where you'd want it to be, close enough to walk a couple blocks to everything Saugatuck has to offer, yet far enough to feel like you're 'away from it all.' The house is even better than the pictures show. When we walked in, we were greeted by the refreshed cool blue-toned paint job and a long great room of sorts - really the living area, dining area and kitchen all flowing together. Everything was clean and to the nines, just like you'd expect. The master bedroom is exceptional, featuring a king bed set and adjoined with a sitting room/office with a couch, tv, fireplace, desk and patio access to the backyard. The 2nd bedroom is smaller, but more than sufficient to provide sleeping quarters in a full size bed. The backyard is exquisite, with gorgeous tall trees, professional landscaping and accent lighting at night. The whole yard is fenced, so if you're bringing your furry friend, no need to fret. A gate in the backyard opens to a shared inground swimming pool behind the property. Unfortunately it was a little too cold for swimming the week we were in town, but it looks like another real asset for this property. There's a grill out back with a patio set all situated on gorgeous bluestone slabs.

When leaving, the cleaning service arrived just as we were finishing up, so it appears the next guests were welcomed in the same fashion as when we arrived.

One thing the owner does ask of you is that you treat the home as your own - a reasonable request in our opinion. Before leaving, you should start a load of laundry, dishes, take out the trash, and return any items you moved to their original locations. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of if you're the type that takes issue with that kind of thing.

All in all, we had a great experience and hope to be back sooner than later. Thanks P!

Owner's Response: Thank you- what can I say? You echoed exactly the words on our site. The housekeeper said you were the best guests, leaving the home clean . We are thrilled you enjoyed your holiday. We feel everyone works hard and needs a break in an enjoyable atmosphere.. The few requests, which most owners request, allow the housekeeper to get into detail cleaning. Towels take longer and the dishwasher 2 hours, so your kindness really helped for the next guests. We are all in his life together! God bless you, Enjoy the rest of the summer and hope to meet you ! Patricia and crew
