Beautiful and peaceful property!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property! Norm is a wonderful host with great suggestions on restaurants and things to do. Our room was immaculate and overlooked the meadow, pool, and stunning garden which includes a koi pond. The property is perfect for having a peaceful rest but close enough to all the action! Already looking forward to coming back!

Exceptional Property with Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Norm has a beautiful place and is wonderful, welcoming host! The accommodations are lovely and immaculate, and the grounds are lush, vibrant, and impeccably maintained. Norm was welcoming and friendly, with great recommendations for the area. Although we have visited the Saugatuck/Douglas area for several years, he turned us onto some new restaurants that we thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely recommend Norm's place and would love to return for a future stay!

Great stay, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Our room was quiet, comfortable, and pleasantly decorated. There was a B&B feel but with more privacy and more updated furnishings. The highlight is the pool/patio/porch area, which overlooks a meadow and includes a koi pond, high-end grill, beautiful gardens, and a cozy screened porch stocked with coffee table books. The owner, Norm, is very gracious, attentive, and helpful in recommending local sights and experiences. The location relative to attractions is somewhat of a drawback--it's not on the lake and is walkable to downtown Douglas but not right there. We felt it was a good value.

Honeymoon in Douglas!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely. Private, quiet, beautifully landscaped, glorious pool. The unit was perfect for 2 people; only suggestions: put shower floor grippers on very slick shower floor, put up some hooks in the bathroom for towels & robes; consider installing a microwave. Norm made great restaurant recommendations & was a very gracious host. Cannot wait to return!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay in Douglas, MI. Of all the vacations I've been on, Sagatuck/Douglas has been the most relaxed I've ever been. When we arrived it was raining, but Norm's property was so gorgeous that the rain didn't bother me at all. We stayed in his room facing the pool and it was perfect. He provides coffee, wine glasses and cups. He also knows the area really well and suggested lots of things for us to do which we took him up on. His property is a convenient 10 minute bike ride and he has a shed for you to store the bikes. The property also has parking which was awesome. The scenery was beautiful and the area provides for easy living. We would easily return and stay at Norm's even if we didn't feel like exploring because his place provides such R&R. Thanks for a great stay!

Car: recommended

This wonderful suite is located in a peaceful setting just a short walk to Lake Michigan and only minutes by car from all the attractions the Saugatuck/Douglas area has to offer. Spend the day by the pool or stroll down to Lake Michigan for a walk or bike ride along scenic Lakeshore Drive. Lunch , Dinner or Cocktails are just a short walk to leading restaurants or dance clubs.
