I loved the cottage, exactly as pictured. Nice and clean and well stocked with supplies.

  • 5 of 5

Janet and Gary, the owners, were very friendly and helpful. The cottage is in a perfect location, very short walk into town and also close to the water and park. I loved that I could bring my little dog on vacation with me, and really enjoyed my stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. It's always rewarding to know that our efforts to make the cottage comfortable are appreciated. It's also nice to see that people with pets have nice places which will accommodate them and their hairy family members. As the cottage is located on a short dead end street it's ideally located for pets, small children and a restful get away.

Charming, pristine cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent little cottage— just big enough to provide us a little wiggle room, which made for a very relaxing 2-night stay. Parking available in adjacent driveway. Perfect location for access to downtown Saugatuck. Nicely decorated and very clean. I only wish checkout was at 11i instead of 10. Will definitely want to book again in the future.

A charming cottage located conveniently near the park, ferries, and shopping district of Saugatuck.

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cottage from the moment I stepped into it.

The cottage is sweet and warm and stocked with everything you might need, including logs for the small, stand alone outdoor fireplace. The yard is picturesque and the street quiet.

If you stay at Jan's Cottage, you will be in the historic district. Additionally, one is able to come out of the front door, turn right, navigate up the stairs and continue to explore to the expansive residential historic district of Saugatuck located behind and parallel to the downtown shopping district. If you turn left, you are two blocks from the ferry, park, and downtown shopping area.

The owners are nearby and ready and able to help you with any questions or concerns you may have!

The fact that the cottage is on a quiet, dead end street only serves to enhance its already numerous location advantages. It's cute, charming, and has a relaxing atmosphere. It was perfect for me and my occasional guests. I will be back! Thanks Jan and Gary!

Charming cottage! Quiet location and within walking distance of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Was perfect for the two of us. Very quiet for being so near Butler. Walk to everything you want to do. Ate at Marros and Brodie's and had excellent food. Boarded the Star of Saugatuck and learned a few things we didn't know. A great vacation.
