The Lilypad Cabin needs attention.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arriving the day, the first thing we saw when we were about to open the front door was a screen door ajar with screening barely attached. That was not a good first impression. During the second day of our week long rental I tried to use the barbecue grill on the patio. The lp tank valve was "frozen". I could not budge it. The lp tank sat on the ground because the bracket that should have held it was no where to be found. The rubber hose connecting the lp tank to the grill is what held the tank. Not a safe situation. The grill was filthy, rusty and basically hadn't been attended to in years. The grill should have been replaced a long time ago.

I contacted the owner's realtor representative about both the screen door and barbecue grill. The screen door was repaired in two days. The grill was never replaced. We were not able to enjoy any grilled meals at the cabin. I sent a text to the realtor Barbara around the middle of the week and asked her to call me . She never called me. I saw Barbara when we were leaving after our week stay. I asked why she never called me. Her response was she read my text during dinner out but couldn't call at that time. I said you could and should have called me the next day. She said she knew that but didn't. ????

Who ever is charged with the responsibility of inspecting the condition of the Lilypad cabin after renters leave and before new renters move in is not doing an adequate job of inspecting. One could not miss the condition of the screen door.

The property was perfect for our Michigan trip.

  • 5 of 5

The property and Saugatuck had everything we wanted. We love the ramp to the dock and Goshorn Lake being so close. Made it easy for the guys to fish and boat. The pool was nice and secluded and easy access. The outside fire pit and sitting area was perfect size for roasting marshmallows and winding up the day. We enjoyed the Saugatuck, the shops and the restaurants and a very short trip. TOval Beach was easy drive and we loved Lakeshore Drive views of Lake Michigan. Such a short drive from our Southern Indiana home where we normally spend 11 hours getting to the Gulf or the Atlantic Ocean. We fell in love with Lake Life - "unsalted and sharkfree". We'll be back.

Family Gathering Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week's family gathering in the Saugatuck area. We had enough space for 8 to sleep comfortably. We had called the rental agent beforehand to determine what extras we needed to bring; i.e. kitchen utensils, grilling tools, towels, etc. They told us to bring any utensils/small appliances we felt we would need -- we actually left two large IKEA bags filled, on the back porch, all week! We found everything we needed to cook every meal for 8 except individual measuring cups and a waffle iron. Beautiful linens, towels, new front-load washer & dryer, a fire pit and grill on-site for your use, as well as the special forks for toasting the marshmallows and hot dogs! Bring swim towels for the community pool, bug spray, and sunscreen.

We went blueberry picking north of Holland, spent a day at Oval Beach, and visited a lighthouse museum too. We had family pictures taken at Oval Beach. Saugatuck is a great little village to browse and shop for art, clothing, chocolates, and delicious food. Be sure to take a ride on the chain ferry - our grandchildren got to 'grind' us across - they said it was the best part of the week!

We hope the renting agents will take the time to actually visit this home and make note of all of the special conveniences the owner has provided, i.e. life jackets, fish poles, board games, movies .... so they can adequately inform future renters.

Our family had the best vacation of our lives at this beautiful cabin in July 2014! We were traveling with three generations and everyone easily amused themselves. The accommodations are immaculate, the décor delightful and the scenery beautiful. The cabin is located directly across the pool making it ridiculously easy to get there (maybe 30 seconds?) and right on the boardwalk to the lake. The cabin includes a canoe which was easy to haul to lake, kids were thrilled.

The towns of Saugatuck and Douglas are easy to access. I highly recommend the Saugatuck Dune rides and the sunset cruise in Saugatuck. We visited Oval Beach as well, but during our stay it was unseasonably cold so the kids didn't stay in the water long (the community pool is heated, thus much harder to keep them out!). Also highly recommend Saugatuck Dunes State Park/beach is beautiful. Be aware that the walk into the park may be a bit much for young ones.

Our kids loved the back porch, proximity to the pool and making smores in the fire pit. Parents (and grandparents) love the relaxed feel of the cabin/lake setting. You won't regret staying here.

Quaint Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family vacationed here and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is just like it looks in the pictures, we were across the road from the communal pool. The kids played there every day. We were next to the boardwalk that led to Lake Goshorn. We never used the canoe but one comes with the cabin. This location is close to the Saugatuck Dune Rides attraction, and also the villages of Saugatuck and Douglas. We went on the sunset cruise in Saugatuck, visited Oval Beach, climbed Mount Baldhead, and did some shopping in Saugatuck and Douglas. Overall it was a great location, and we had a great time. I would recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to explore the Saugatuck/Douglas communities. My kids loved the cabin, especially the screened-in porch that makes you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. We had a fire pit and made smores at night (watch out for mosquitoes).
