Why Carol Harrington chose Ganges
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.

Perfect Weekend Getaway
My boyfriend and I took our dog to the cottage for the weekend. Carole greeted us when we arrived and let us know she was available nearby if we needed anything. The home was filled with anything you would need. It was a cozy littl cottage with a TON of grass and space for the dog to run. We made fires in the bonfire pit outside and watched th sunset. There is a trail behind the house that leads to a private beach. Just wear bugspray! There were tons of mosquitoes and we did see some ticks. The home is 10 minutes outside of downtown saugatuck which is a great little town. Will come back!!! Thank you!!!
The best location you can ever imagine
Good cabin with all necessities
Dog friendly. Enjoyed it very much
Rest Relax Rejunvinate
Staying here was indeed a blast from my past! Such fun to be there and just take time to unwind and rest. We were there for a family reunion, having rented 5 cottages in the area. All my family said they liked our cottage the best. Just to be out on the patio for coffee and then later for wine and cheese...made it so relaxing. The expansive view of the Lake was incredible! Listening to the waves from our bed, made us think we had died and gone to heaven.
The cottage was well equipped, and if there was anything we needed,
Will the care taker, was there to correct it.
Carol and Will went out of their way to have the cottage ready a bit early because we had traveled from the West Coast.
Truly there is NOT anything bad to say about the cottage except that our vacation there went way too fast!
We had stayed at the cottage many years ago when we lived in Illinois, and it made our hearts happy to be able to do it again!
Thank you Carol and Will for making our stay at Shoreline Cottage such a delightful time...now that we are back in California...we have great memories of Summer 2017....and look forward to returning next summer 2018!
The setting and view can't be beat!
The house is a bit rough around the edges but the amazing setting, breathtaking views, lovely private beach and incredibly nice owners with their fabulous dog Daisy make it five stars. It's really an incredible location. Never seen anything like it. And the owners couldn't be nicer or more laid back. There's a second less rustic cabin on the property which we have also stayed at and is lovely. We plan to come back here every year. Thanks Harrington's!
We absolutely had a wonderful stay on this property. The house is quaint and comfortable, and allowed us to bring our dogs (major plus). The owners and Will were friendly and there for any questions you had. The view was by far one of the best of Lake Michigan with no obstructions- leading to first class sunsets. Close to town, but secluded to make you really relax. Will be there again!
Superb Location for Dogs :)
Right on the lake, a large and gorgeous property with a wide and ideal view of Lake Michigan. Amazing sunsets! Private path to the beach. Great fire pit- wood provided. The house is a classic cottage. Clean, comfortable. Everything worked fine. Well-equipped kitchen. If you are used to being pampered or need modern lodging, this cottage is probably not for you. We had 3 big dogs with us and they slept in the large screen porch - perfect. We will go back. Good value. Carol and Will were super nice.
