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!

Cute and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and nicely decorated. All of the furniture, including the beds, was comfortable. The living spaces provided lots of room for us to gather as a group or separately. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything that we needed. The house was easy to find and provided quick driving access to the activities in Saugatuck . It was a 5-minute, easy walk to view Lake Michigan. Getting to the beach by foot was a little tricky. It was better to drive to one of the public beaches. The woodsy setting was quiet and peaceful. Having a hot tub soak was the perfect end-of-the-day-activity. I also appreciated the welcome packet being sent before our visit so that we knew how to use the TV’s, hot tub, etc. When called with a question, the owner was very quick and helpful with her replies. She was also quick to refund the entire damage deposit promptly. It was a lovely 4-day weekend and I definitely recommend the house.

Peace & Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dougherty's home this past week. What a peaceful and tranquil place to get away! With a party of six this home was perfect for my parents with the master bedroom conveniently located on the first floor. One couple stayed upstairs in one of the two bedrooms while my wife and I stayed downstairs in the large basement that was well furnished with plenty of seating and an entertainment center. The galley kitchen is well furnished and we enjoyed cooking and sitting around the dining room table mornings and evenings. Lovely wraparound porch that was used well by us for reading and relaxation. Easy access to Douglas/Saugatuck. We likewise enjoyed exercising along Lakeshore Drive just a block away. It is a quiet road one can feel fairly safe walking or cycling along as we did each day while also accessing the beach via the 2-3 nearby parks. All-in-all the home worked very well for our party of six. We would gladly stay here again. Teri was very nice to work with and very accommodating. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great time with our family

  • 5 of 5

Every year we have a mini vacation with our three grown children. The house was perfect! It was large enough for everyone to be together and also have their own space. The wrap around deck was great for relaxing and eating outdoors. Really enjoyed the hot tub. It was so relaxing and private. Just what everyone needed!

Great Home, Very Clean, and Outstanding Owner Support

  • 5 of 5

We had seven family members staying in Teri's place and it was very comfortable and clean. The home contains everything you need for your stay. The kitchen is well supplied and the furnishings are comfortable. The setting is beautiful. When we had a couple questions Teri responded in minutes to our messages. The park with beach access, which was just down the road, was marvelous. If you enjoy golf, try Hawkshead Links, near South Haven (18 min drive). Great stay in a wonderful location.
