About Wilma Kosal

Recently retired from sales, but moving full-time into her pottery career, Wilma loves Saugatuck and feels fortunate to be able to share her home with you. Folding out of her lovely backyard, the cottage is nestled in its own oasis and if you want privacy, it’s yours. If you want philosophies on life, stories from her European upbringing, and insight on the true gems of Saugatuck, Wilma is all smiles.

About 15 years ago, Wilma happened to be at the right place at the right time and the stars aligned for her to purchase the Bridge Street home and cottage. Upon her retirement, she has been able to devote more time to gardening and other creative endeavors – many of which you will enjoy during your stay. The garden is inviting and Wilma’s pottery is infused in the space (and as an extra bonus, you can purchase some of her work if you are interested).

Wilma Kosal purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Wilma Kosal chose Southwest

“I felt at home. The general atmosphere of the town, the beach, and the arts spoke to me. How wonderful to be able to enjoy a fantastic meal at a restaurant, enjoy a play, and then walk the shores at sunset. Saugatuck is beautiful, unique, friendly, and there are different programs and events offered throughout the year that whenever you visit, something special awaits you.”

What makes this cottage unique

Past guests have described the cottage as romantic, enchanting, and cozy. You come to a potentially busy town and you can escape in your own cottage. There are only 3 houses on the street. You are alone if you want to be. Downtown is only a 5 minute walk from the cottage. The garden is lovely and past guests comment that it feels like you are transported back in time.

Personally, I love riding my bike into town, hanging out at the coffee shop while reading the paper and people-watching. Then I enjoy gardening back at my house, talking with friends, and taking walks at sunset on the beach. It is my ideal retirement town.

Sanctuary close to it all!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable cottage perfect for my long weekend. The backyard is beautiful and peaceful. Everything is close by. Wilma has thought of every detail and was wonderful in her communication and knowledge of things to do. Her family was staying over the weekend and shared their beach pass with us too! I will be back!!

Tucked Away Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This Historic Bird Cottage is a MUST visit if you are in the area!!! The cottage is on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from town. The back yard is majestic and the inside was wonderful right down to the lighting! My husband and I kept the back open to fall asleep listening to the fountain in the back. The owner, Wilma is such a delight and cared so much about our stay and enjoyment. I cannot express how glad we are to have found this gem! We'll be back, Wilma! Job well done and we hope to see you sooner than later! Xoxo

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway after dropping our kids off at camp. The cottage was clean and cozy. It was very quiet, relaxing and within walking distance to downtown. Wilma was the sweetest! She greeted us when we arrived and gave us a little history behind the cottage and some good suggestions on places to eat. It was perfect for what we were looking for. We would rent this cottage again
