Why Carol Harrington chose Fennville

Our Story....

begins every spring with the first of the guests that arrive after a seemingly long and gray winter season. We have always eagerly awaited the arrival of the families; some with children that can not wait to kick off shoes and run down the beach. There are the folks with the children being full grown and will enjoy a day or several - with them and the grandchildren, to enjoy the calming sound of Lake Michigan waves or the comfort of the country air to breathe. Certainly the wonderful friends that have returned year after year have become more like our extended family. Come and experience the calming effect of this cabin on the lake; you will experience the Lake Michigan shoreline like never before!

Couldn't be happier with our second stay now at this cozy cabin. The beach access along with its location so close to downtown Saugatuck make this the perfect location for anyone. We will definitely be back again in the future!

Very comfy cabin, and great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

As an Ohio State Alumni, I never would have dreamed to vacation in Michigan but so glad that we did :)We will be returning next year, for certain.

The cabin had a lot of thoughtful extras. Wine and glasses were left out for us, along with fresh flowers. Coffee and creamer, and biscuits for our two Golden Retrievers (Fletch and Harley). Daisy, the property dog, was so well behaved. I kept trying to call her over to come and get a treat that I bought for her in Saugatuck, but she was so loyal to her property next door so I dropped it off for her.

Will came over to drop off the most amazing salsa we've ever had. It had quite the kick that we loved. He recommended several places that we can't wait to visit again. Salt of the Earth restaurant in Fennville was just as incredible as he described. We also took my 16 month old son to the Children's museum, and it was incredible! I can't believe such a place exists in such a quaint little town! He had fun collecting acorns in the yard, back at the cabin :)

Can't wait to come back! We will be booking soon for next year!

Private vacation, great location

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and I picked this cabin to round out the end of our Spring Break and we could not have had a better time. Will was kind, helpful, and informative while his dog, Daisy was a pleasant companion. The location was just right; enough privacy, access to a beach, but close enough to town. Several times I've wanted to come back here and I cannot wait to have the chance to do so. It truly was a wonderful place to stay.

Fantastic as Always!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in the cabin and the third stay on the Harrington property. Carol and Will were extremely friendly as always and I love being greeted by Daisy when I arrive.

My dog Dexter loves playing outside with Daisy and there is TONS of room for him to run around and chase his ball.

Carol had a welcome bottle of wine upon my arrival which was a great surprise! On top of that there was food and treats in the cottage for my dog! There was a beautiful Beeswax candle on the table to light and beeswax fire starters to get the bonfire going ;-) ! I love that there are some basics in the cottage such as Salt, Pepper, spices, coffee, and sugar. Saves me a little cash having to pic those up at the store!

And Location, location, location - right on the beach with the best view of the lake in the area. Private beachfront property is fantastic for the morning walks with a cup of coffee (or monster in my case).

As always - I'm impressed and of course Ill be staying again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous and we had a blast! Will the property manager was great and friendly and his dog Daisy was so sweet. I found it hard to say goodbye to her :-). The location is close to downtown Saugatuck so there is plenty to do! We will def be back!

Fantastic location with Fantastic people...

  • 5 of 5

What a great location and completely relaxing. Will, Carol, Josh and our favorite Daisy (the cabin - mascot Dog) were more hospitable than you could imagine. Our 2 dogs loved spending time running in the yard and relaxing on the wrap around deck. These hosts were extremely helpful but gave us as much space as we could possibly need. Cabin is spacious, view of lake Michigan is a million dollar view and the free wood for the fire pit was an added plus. Just minutes from Saugatuck/Douglas with lots of shops and restaurants. I'd recommend this spot to anyone...what a hidden gem!
