Beautiful Cedar Chalet w/ Floor-to-Ceiling Windows & Wrap-Around Decks

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom in a wooded setting

You're lounging on an expansive second-level deck, looking out into the pines, with a glass of wine and a good book. A hawk soars above as the sun slowly sets through the trees. As dusk settles, you decide to walk down to the private beach at the end of the road and dip your toes in the lake one more time, as someone else lights up the grill and turns on the music. Tomorrow will be another day filled with laid-back, natural beaches, gallery hopping, and maybe a little shopping. Life is good.

Come experience our little corner of southwestern Michigan. Our 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom cedar home sleeps at least 8 people. It has 3 floors, a large kitchen and living room area, and vaulted ceilings with picturesque windows that highlight the surrounding wooded setting. A 2-level deck wraps around 2 sides of the house, and has a barbecue grill and dining space. A path at the end of the street provides private beach access to Silver Lake, which empties into Kalamazoo Lake and Lake Michigan. Downtown Saugatuck and Douglas are a quick 2-mile drive away.

Visit local wineries, pick blueberries with the kids, or hike the trails of Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Head down to Oval Beach or rent kayaks to navigate the calm inner waters around town. Go boating up shores of Lake Michigan or antiquing up Blue Star Highway. There really is something for everyone.

Peak Season reservations are Friday to Friday, for a 7-night minimum.

About Rachel

Daymon and Rachel currently reside just around the lake in Evanston, IL. They love spending time at their Saugatuck home and especially love to take long hikes at Saugatuck Dunes State Park with their daughter and dog. They are excited to share their home and this charming area with others!

Rachel purchased this house in 2006

Why Rachel chose Southwest

This location and home strike the perfect balance. It is a relaxing retreat from it all, but it is just a short drive from Chicago and other major areas. Its setting promotes quiet reflection, but its open layout and expansive main areas encourage quality time with family and friends.

Great place! We thoroughly enjoyed the home and it's amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in the area and we will return, asap. The property was clean and well furnished. 7 adults were well accommodated and had a great weekend mini-vacation. Personally, I could stare out the window wall at the tall pines swaying in the wind for hours. The neighborhood is quiet and cozy as is the home. We spent some time in area breweries but our favorite was the small town groecery store which was reminiscent of days gone by, very friendly and charming!

Wonderful Getaway House!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came up to Saugatuck for a girls weekend and loved staying here! The owners and manager Cindy are extremely nice and flexible. We originally booked a weekend in the fall and wanted to reschedule due to the World Series being in Chicago and they were extremely accommodating. I brought my dog who loved running around the grounds and swimming in the lake near by. The house comfortably slept us and has plenty of space to lounge/chat. Highly recommend!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an extended weekend. We had 6 adults, an infant and a dog and we were all extremely comfortable. The kitchen is great for cooking as a family and it is open to the main living area so it is perfect for hanging out. The property is super convenient to the dunes park for hiking and downtown for restaurants and shopping. It was a perfect trip! Cindy is extremely nice and makes herself available although we encountered no problems and did not have to contact her during our stay. We would definitely come back!

Great experience - exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a winter getaway with some friends and was not disappointed. We were looking for a place to have a lazy and belated Friendsgiving and honestly couldn't have had a better experience. It had the perfect amount of space both inside and outside for all eight of us plus our 35 lb. Aussie to lounge around and make large family style meals. We spent some time during the day exploring the local breweries and wineries but this rental was easily where we had the best times of the vacation. The house was in great shape and very clean.The owners responded promptly to our questions/concerns throughout the entire process. Neighbors were very friendly and were happy to give recommendations around town. It exceeded everyone's expectations. I strongly recommend and definitely would book again.
