About Dino & Cheryl

Hi, we are Cheryl and Dino, we live on site at the resort year round. We purchased the resort in 2011 and made many improvements, including finishing this house. The entire property is the former estate of Lloyd J Harris (Sara Lee). The property consists of 20 hotel condos and a large house. The entire property had new additions and new units built on site recently. This was owned by Dino's family in the 80's. When the property came up for sale a few years back, we knew we had to buy it. The location between the harbor and Lake Michigan in a residential neighborhood is rare. You can stroll out of the driveway towards Lake Michigan and enjoy the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired homes along the lakeshore. Many were built by his students. Or, you can turn the other way and walk along the harbor watching the boats go by. You can also sit and watch the deer and enjoy the quiet 4.24 acres of serenity. The pool and hot tub are located on the bluff on site. Just across the parking lot.

Dino & Cheryl purchased this house in 2010

Why Dino & Cheryl chose Southwest

This property can sleep up to 14 people with living and dining space for all. The master bedroom has a king bed with a futon and large bathroom with it's own deck and LED TV. The guest bedroom has 2 queen beds, and a LED TV. The kids bedroom has a queen bed, 2 upper twins, and a lower twin with an LED TV and an Xbox. The main floor bedroom has a full size bed. The garage was converted to a game room with a pool table. The living room has 2 large leather couches to seat everyone with a large LED TV. The kitchen is granite with all new stainless appliances. There is a wet bar in the dining area with a large table. The pool table also converts to a dining room table for the kids if needed. Dual zone heating and cooling, parking for up to 10 cars, a large deck with furniture, and a mud room. The back yard is private and not shared with the resort.

The resort is also the closest to the Lakeshore Chapel, Saugatuck's favorite place to get married. It is a short walk out of the parking lot.

What makes this house unique

This summer, our renters loved the size of the home, condition, and location. Many loved the benefit of renting the home for family reunions and letting the grand parents rent one of the separate condos. We have found our niche in the market, family reunions. We have had groups over 100 renting the entire place for weddings and family reunions. Some have even rented our resort because of it's ability to have a large tent for their guests to congregate. Our pool is the largest in the Saugatuck area and our hot tub is great for relaxing. We offer many different units from efficiencies, 1 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms, and the house. Please call to discuss further.

Recently renovated and great for entertaining

  • 4 of 5

This house was extremely clean and recently renovated. Dino the owner was wonderful to work with, was flexible with the check in/ check out time. Kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans in order to cook a full meal, as well as serving dishes. Had difficulty with starting the fireplace and the owner came over within the hour to fix, as well with some wiring for the tv which was figured out quite quickly. Great rate for the size/quality of the interior of the home. We had 12-13 people there and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. Would definitely rent this property again.
