Property description

Nestled among the tree tops, therefore affectionately known as the 'tree house', this unique Lindal cedar home is an extraordinary vacation retreat. The tree house features stunning views of the harbor and will give you the privacy and seclusion you look for when vacationing, yet this amazing property is just a short walk to everything downtown Saugatuck has to offer. This 3000 square foot home is perfect for family reunions, wedding party accommodations, multi-family vacations and more! Five good size bedrooms, 3 full baths, a luxurious kitchen and three separate living rooms each focusing on a different type of tranquility (family gathering, game room and movie theater feel). Whether it's from the loft just off the master bedroom, or on any of the 3 large wrap around decks on the remaining floors, you will always have great views amongst the trees and out to the harbor of kalamazoo lake, providing you a perfect setting for that morning coffee or night time beverage! The tree house also features two fireplaces (main & 2nd floor), extremely fast wifi, a good size laundry room with full size washer and dryer and full access to it's over sized 2 stall garage leaving you plenty of room for parking, bicycles, kayaks, beach gear and other necessities needed on your getaway.
