About Teri Dougherty
Owners are brother and sister and their spouses. We live in Omaha, Nebraska where we were raised. We love the area and wanted to buy a place that was in superb condition to share with others and to use periodically by our families.
Teri Dougherty purchased this House in 2012
Why Teri Dougherty chose Fennville
We have vacationed in the area several times over the last few years visiting our brother. We fell in love with the area and the people. The beauty of the area, the peacefulness and the many things to do made us want to have a place we could call our own and share with others. This home's location and its unbelievably perfect condition made it an easy choice. It is surrounded by lush landscaping and forest. It is very private, very quiet and very serene. Relaxing on the wrap around porch or on one of the decks and watching the deer run by or listening to the birds chirp or the waters roll in off Lake Michigan make it the perfect retreat. The Sauguatuck/Douglas area are just moments away. We love the wonderful dining, entertainment, shopping and beaches. This is truly our little slice of Heaven!
What makes this House unique
From the moment we walked onto the property, we knew this was the home for us. The beautiful wrap around porch with comfy outdoor furniture made us not want to leave. The quality and condition of the interior with its beautiful cherry wood floors, cabinetry, lighting and 360 degree view of the woods was exactly what we were looking for. The master suite with its own bath and the two large bedrooms upstairs with their own bath as well as the finished lower level is the perfect set up for a family or for several couples wanting to get away. The kitchen is a dream to work in and you never seem seperated from the other guests. The cozy den is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or sneak in an afternoon nap. The fireplace in the living room just tops off the many features. Relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a fun day and watching the trees sway lazily with the breeze is so relaxing. This home is a 10 in our books!

Great house in a great location!
Home was beautiful, spacious and clean! Nice decks and private areas made it great for a girls weekend. Walk to beach was nice but somewhat complicated to find the stairs down to the water. We had a great stay!
Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood
We had three couples taking a trip to the Tulip Festival in Holland. This home was a perfect place for a group like ours. It was beautiful, wonderfully equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is a block from lake Michigan so we took walks along Lakeshore dr. every night when we returned from the festival. Only one item to make you aware of, the front door knob on the inside is a little wobbly, but other than that, everything was perfect. Obviously well cared for property. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.
Great house and location!
The property was incredibly clean, everything is new and in good working order, beds are comfortable, location is nice for trips to the beach and the wineries. We had a great time!
Beautiful, Clean, and Perfect for a Large Group!
A large group of myself and my best friends of 8-9 girls stayed here for a Friday night to Sunday night. The house was beautiful inside and out and I also enjoyed the private location surrounded by trees. We got there on Friday night and stayed inside with board games in the basement of the house (very spacious and nice, with a restroom as well). We made our way to the hot tub later that night and it was so relaxing and peaceful. I already wish I could go back! I appreciated the binder with instructions provided on how to refill the hot tub if it gets low as well as what settings the hot tub should be set to. The binder gives specifics on how to do that and where to find everything. It also gives specifics on checkout and that was super helpful as we were packing up. The next night we drove to Saugatuck/Douglas and went to eat at the Butler and ended our night at Wally’s. There was a live band there that night and we had a BLAST! I would recommend this location and this house to anyone. Even the drive to the house was beautiful since it’s super close to the Lake. It was a little too chilly for us to be in the water but for anyone looking for a place near the water, this is a great choice. I hope to have a reason to go back soon. Teri was great as well with responding to my questions regarding the stay. It couldn’t have been a better weekend.
Great location & very well-maintained house!
We love staying in this area, it's so quiet and peaceful. You can walk out on the roads or down to the beach to overlook a Lake Michigan sunset.
The house is fantastic - we have stayed in numerous rental houses over the years, and I think this may be the most well-maintained house we've been in. Everything worked, and there were no little things that you say "oh that would be easy to fix." Nothing needed fixed - not a drawer knob or a wobbly chair. The hot tub was pristine, the cable/internet were easy to use, the fence touched the ground in all areas so our 5-lb dog couldn't even attempt to get underneath. This attention to detail is evident all throughout the house - the owners care about their property, and you feel like you're truly their guest, not just their renters. We will be back, I know that. Thank you Teri & your co-owners, we look forward to the next time!
The house is located in a private wooded setting, one block off Lake Michigan. The local area boasts several vineyards and wineries as well as blueberry, peach and apple orchards. The Saugatuck/Douglas area is very beautiful and includes wonderful dining, shopping and nightlife centered around Lake Kalamazoo and its harbor feel.
