Property description

This cozy, rustic home is focused on sustainability (no AC) and creativity in the middle of 20 acres of a beautiful old forest. Quiet, private and very affordable with the owner nearby for your convenience. No sirens or traffic noise, no people noise. Just the music of peepers, birds and comfortable breezes.

There's a fire pit and grill near the cabin deck, a campfire nearby just to remind you that you're in the country and a hammock for watching the universe of stars at night. My English Mastiff, woman's best friend, is also here to greet you when you want. Spud, the cat, loves people, too.

The Beech House close by sleeps 5 on the porch overlooking the pond and the little cabin, Thimblefern (also nearby), sleeps 2.

Check out the events in Saugatuck or South Haven or take a dip in Lake Michigan, you're just 5-10 minutes away.

Please call 269-355-3339 to discuss.

Keywords: Between Saugatuck and Glenn, 5 minutes from Lake Michigan beach, private, quiet, in the center of beautiful woods

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I've had various careers over many years in the Midwest but this place has been in my heart since the 60's. I love the energy of this forest. I also love sharing it with others so they can also experience the insights that this peaceful forest brings. I am close by to help you should you need it. People claim my fruit pies are the best they've ever tasted. I can bake one for you, if you like.

Why the Owner Chose Fennville, MI, USA:
What people love about this property is the quiet, peaceful privacy and the nearby beaches. Just minutes from Lake Michigan but $$$$ less than the lakeshore rentals. The Red Spirit in located 10 minutes from South Haven, Saugatuck and Fennville, all with their own special interests. Over a 100 years ago, Native Americans made their home here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There are walking trails, benches to meditate from, a large pond, herb and flower gardens, a large campfire setting nearby, art work (some in the works) and more. This is not like a motel/hotel or anything like most homes. It's a rustic extension of a giant, tiny home. Imagine that!
