We have two separate lovely, private condo-style suites with views of Lake Kalamazoo (Saugatuck's Harbor) and Coughlin Park in Saugatuck's downtown Historic District, steps away from premier shopping, dining and boating opportunities.
This listing is for Suite #1 (Amani Suite) which is located on the main floor at the back of the Amazwi Contemporary Art gallery building. See Listing # 40745 for information on Suite #2 (Ndoto Suite) which is on the second floor above the gallery.
The suites are located near the Saugatuck Center for the Arts where entertainment options range from live theater and music performances to workshops for the budding artist, and weekly Farmers' Market in the Summer. Stroll through town to the hand-cranked Chain Ferry that crosses the Kalamazoo River, then walk or take the Inter-Urban bus to world-renowned Oval Beach.

Why Wally chose Saugatuck
This is a great 'in-town' location because it is within walking distance of everything, yet it is on a side street removed from the restaurants and bars so there is not street/sidewalk traffic at night. Across the street is Coughlin Park and views of Lake Kalamazoo Harbor.

Great suite with a view
We stayed 2 nights and found it very clean, inviting, and quiet. The suite is in a great location and we loved that we could have our morning coffee and look out at the lake. We would definitely stay here again!
Thanks for the kind review, Jennifer. Hope to see you back in Saugatuck again soon. Best, Wally
Wonderful and Perfect Location
Would highly recommend this property! Location is within walking distance of everything in the town. Wally our host was fast to respond (contacted us rapidly even when he was on a vacation himself!) Great place and would request to rent again!
Hi Rebecca, I may have been fast to respond to your reservation request but I am woefully behind in thanking you for this really nice review. You're pretty wonderful and perfect yourself. Come back again soon! Best, Wally
Wonderful spot for 2! Location was excellent!!
Property was perfect for my husband and myself. Everything there that we needed. Very clean. Great location
Belated thanks, Nancy, for this great review. We're glad you found us and hope we get to welcome you back sometime soon. Best, Wally
Beautiful suite in the heart of Sagatuck. Beautifully appointed, very clean & comfy. Brilliant use of the space. Loved how close everything was to the action & a very short walk to the Kalamazoo River.
Belated thanks for the kind review. Next time you need more peace, head our way!
We really enjoyed staying at the suite. For a couple, it is a comfortable size, roomy bedroom and bath and steps from the water. It was so nice to walk out to the Lake in the morning with my coffee - very peaceful and there is a small deck/outdoor space as well. The unit is quiet, clean and on the backside of the gallery so it's fairly private. So easy to walk to local restaurants, coffee shops, walk through the beautiful neighborhoods, etc. The gallery staff were very pleasant and professional to deal with and for the price, this is a terrific value. The only negative was the deck area being next to a small driveway of a private home and parking lot. We would definitely stay here again.
Hi Mike & Diane,
So glad you stayed with us and had a great stay overall. Not because we want that 5th star, but it might help: we purchased that small private cottage next to the gallery and our adding it to our rental program (after rehabbing it a bit). That means we can reconfigure the fence and offer Suite 1 even more outdoor space. We can't move the parking spaces on Griffith St., but we're glad that the park and the Kalamazoo River are a stone's toss away. Hope to see you back here again sometime soon. Best, Wally
Adorable place, rock star location!
This was a great place to stay! Walk to everything! Very clean and cute decor. Full kitchen and really nice bathroom:) we will definitely be back! Loved it
Talk about a "rock star!" That would be you. Thanks so much, belatedly, for the great review. Saugatuck is calling you back!
Ox-Bow offers a variety of art classes throughout the Summer.
