About Johh VerWys ( Friendly Owner )

I am native to west Michigan and move to Douglas in 1998. My background is sales and I have a bachelors degree.. I love the out doors and meeting new people.

Johh VerWys ( Friendly Owner ) purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Johh VerWys ( Friendly Owner ) chose Douglas

This cottage once was an old farm house built in 1897. During its life it caught fire and the second floor was removed and replaced with a roof. In 2005 I bought it and did a remodel while attempting to keep some of its charm.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the fact that it is surrounded by woods and yet two minutes from town. My dog enjoys hanging out in the back yard on squirrel patrol. At dusk the deer and turkey cross the road to feed on corn my neighbor puts out daily. Its awesome to see them come visit thought the fence.

Great little cottage, perfect for our family of four, and our dog

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short stay of 5 days. Walnut cottage was very well kept, and had all the amenities of home including cable and wifi.

Minutes to Douglas and Oval beaches. Close to Douglas and Saugatuck. Loved the fenced yard so we could bring our dog as well. Owner John was easy to get ahold of, and we were in constant contact before and after our stay. We would love to come back again, and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Cute little cottage close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

We love our stay in Douglas! Super close to Saugatuck, which has SO much to offer. We were close to multiple beaches and parks. The house was great for our two kids and dog. The fenced in back yard with patio was perfect for coffee and family game night. The owner was prompt with answers and everything in the house was user friendly. We would return!

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great vacation to John's little cottage. Was perfect for our little family of 4, just brought a twin air mattress to put next to the twin bed in the second bedroom. Location was only 1.2 miles from oval beach and a couple of minutes drive to downtown Saugatuck. They had everything you needed in the kitchen, beach towels and extra sheets. Also left soap for kitchen, bathroom, toliet paper and paper towels(been in rentals that didn't supply that). Was a little leary at first because there were no reviews but only because it's a new listing. BTW pictures don't do it justice,much nicer than it appears. Only downside is there is no washer/dryer to use. Would definitely stay again if coming to Saugatuck. :-)
