Charming Cottage on Lakeshore Drive
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

it really IS a charming cottage!! :)

  • 5 of 5

our family has been vacationing in the Saugatuck-Douglas area for many years, and this cottage is now our favorite place to stay!! it has so many attributes that make it perfect for family time together: the amazing porch complete with a view of the lake and sunsets, a well equipped kitchen, the gas grill, so many lovely bedrooms, and a gas fireplace which made the cottage very cozy on a couple of chilly mornings! we loved the location-- it is close to beaches, and all the local sites are just a short drive away. we are so thankful the owner is willing to share such a special place!! we hope to return next year!

Magical Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this family lake house since 2013 and look forward to traveling from California every year to return! The location is fantastic - away from the immediate and pressing throngs of tourists to Saugatuck, but (literally) right across the street from the lake shore (and wonderful beaches), minutes to Oval Beach and d.t. Saugatuck, and in walking distance to the Ox-Bow School of Art as well as the best restaurants in the area located in downtown Douglas. The house itself is a special place, that reminds you of a memory you can't quite place. It's truly one of the few remaining vintage lake houses - complete with wood floors throughout, a clawfoot tub, screened-in porch, sweeping yard, and cozy fireplace for the colder times. The house itself is very large; big enough for one quite large family or even a few smaller families. The owner and property manager are wonderful people and accommodating hosts. I'm counting the days until I can go back and sit on the porch and take in one of those beautiful sunsets. Until next time.....

Charming cottage in excellent location! Perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was ideal for our first stay, as a family of six, in Southwest MI. The location cannot be beat, with a view of the lake (excellent for sunsets), walking distance from both the public Douglas beach and a private beach, and a short drive to town and Oval beach. We had everything we needed for our stay and had more than enough room. We spent most of our time while at the cottage enjoying the comfortable and well-decorated front porch. The breezes near the lake, plus the multiple ceiling fans, kept us cool and we could take advantage of plenty of fresh air (although A/C is also provided). What a great place to spend a late summer vacation!
