Great location but outdated

  • 2 of 5

The location is great. However the cottage was not very clean and had a fuel/gasoline smell throughout the house. The furnishings are worn/ragged and several chairs had large stains. But very close to downtown and the response to inquiries was very quick.

Perfectly charming

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our dog, stayed here the week of Thanksgiving. We were visiting family for various events and it worked out perfectly. I grew up in southwest Michigan and this place is charmingly representative of the cottages/houses I visited and stayed in growing up. If you are looking for a place that is comfortable, clean, quiet and convenient - don't hesitate to stay here. If you are visiting Sagatuck, the walk to downtown is very easy - we did it multiple times in the cold weather. The trails nearby through the pond area are very easy to walk and there is lots of wildlife to view.

The management company was very easy to work with and quick with their deposit refund.

We enjoyed it very much and will be back.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This property was in a perfect location - away from the downtown shopping traffic but in easy walking distance. Very comfortable traditional cottage. There were two of us - my mom and I, as well as a dog, and there was more than enough space. The place was ready early and very clean. We brought a very small dog and the fenced in back yard was perfect for play time as well as late night stops. Although we never cooked, the kitchen was well supplied. There was a wonderful screened in porch for morning coffee. We had our choice of three dining tables - porch, deck and inside.

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage.
