About Ali

My name is Ali, I'm from a very close family of six and am the youngest of four children.

Ali purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Ali chose Southwest

I've been very fortunate to grow up on this very same property of 40 beautiful acres, along with my 3 siblings. My parents and their parents grew up in this town and wanted us to have the same childhood and close knit town they had growing up. We are centrally located between Fennville, Saugatuck and South Haven and so close to amazing beaches. My parents bought this property, which used to be an old turkey farm, 21 years ago. Since the day they bought it, my dad wanted to build cottages and rent them here... 3 years ago, we made it happen. We felt this property was the perfect place to build them, being a quick trip to the our great tourist towns but still having the beauty of being out in the country. But don't worry, you're not roughin' it when you stay here! Newly built, cozy, unique, luxury cottages are what we wanted and we feel we have accomplished that. We hope that your family will come here and make wonderful memories, just like our family did.

What makes this cottage unique

Nestled perfectly in between trees with a screened in porch where you can sit and truly enjoy peace and quiet. If the weather isn't cooperating, you can stay inside, play games with your loved ones or sit on the couch and enjoy a 50' Smart TV with DirecTv.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weeks stay in cottage number 4. When I say it was perfect, I mean perfect! The cottage is immaculate and decorated in such a whimsical yet modern way. There are so many fun details about the cottage words can't do justice to. We loved the feeling of the remote setting with the town of Douglas and Saugatauk just a short drive away. We met several other families during our stay and enjoyed our time at the pool with them, as well as roasting marshmallows by the campfire. The owners are so friendly and accommodating, they provide everything from the firewood to the utensils needed to roast marshmallows for s'mores! Our two young boys loved the property and already can't wait to get back. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation spot with the conveniences of home (including wifi and direct tv) this is the place. We will definitely be back next summer!

Spacious, well appointed, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is even more spacious than what the pictures show. Our ten year old girl and fourteen year old boy were ready to move in; they loved all of the modern amenities. The cottage and resort provided enough for a great night or even day of staying in.

This was our second trip back to the resort; we had such a great time earlier in the summer we had to come back! And once again, no disappointment! The property was meticulous, everything we needed was provided, the location could not be better, and the people are so warm and welcoming we felt at ease and ready to return again and again!

So unique

  • 5 of 5

I loved Dollybrook. I took my staff there for a retreat and it was amazing. The cabins are unbelievably unique and functional. In fact, if I could live there I would. I highly encourage renting, staying for a week or longer, enjoying the pool, horse shoe pits and the close proximity to Saugatuck while also enjoying the Fennville wine tasting room.
