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 Southwest

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely Surprise in the Midst of Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our family's visit to Saugatuck was enhanced by this Chestnut Lane home! The home was in beautiful condition and quite clean. The kitchen was well supplied and lots of cooking aids were available. We were a family of eight, plus two new babies were added into the mix (!), but with the Pack & Play's we brought, there was ample room for all. My husband and I loved the master suite and ensuite bathroom. There was a nearby powder room, as well. My son's small family took the upstairs and my daughter's small family took the newly remodeled lower level. Space for everyone and a bathroom or more per level, and still plenty of room to be together. The beds were all comfortable with good linens. We ate at both the dining room table (seats 8) as well as the porch table. The wrap-around porch is heavenly. We read, napped, dined and rocked babies. We appreciated the cleanliness of the hot tub (it's serviced weekly!) and the icing on the cake: star-gazing! Our one Grand-dog appreciated the fenced in back yard and we tried to leave it clean. The drive into Saugatuck/Douglas is about 10 minutes, easy. Vineyards and u-pick-em fields are very nearby. Holland is about a 20 min. drive. The owner was quick to respond to the one question we did have, which is always appreciated. I think anyone who rents this home will be pleased.

Beautiful vacation home near Saugatuk!

The house, furnishings, setting and gardens were even more beautiful in person - the photos didn't do justice! Absolutely gorgeous and well kept vacation home - handy to beach, shopping, restaurants. We had a wonderful time celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary!
