About Elaine Furlong

My husband and I had this home built because we needed a vacation home for our 3 young sons, 1 who has autism. It was our place to escape. We love the beaches and of course, the resort town.

Elaine Furlong purchased this house in 2000

Why Elaine Furlong chose Southwest

Minutes from all the town offers, yet set on a lot where the kids can still run and play in the backyard. Both public beaches are minutes away. We are in walking distance from the ferry which takes you right into town at the waterfront boardwalk.

What makes this house unique

This a large, comfortable house which welcomes families to sit on the front porch and enjoy the beautiful outdoors and amazing view of the nighttime stars.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Saugatuck weekend

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I try to get away every once in awhile to reconnect and recharge. We decided to go to Saugatuck. We stayed in this beautiful house tucked in a quite neighborhood, with lots of tree and hills. The house is a few miles from the stores and restaurant, but within walking distance to the beach. Since the house has 5 bedrooms/4 baths and sleeps between 12-13, our party of 8 was very comfortable. We were able to have a shuttle bus pick us up at our door, so we did not have to drive into town. Over all, I throughly enjoyed the accommodations and would highly recommend.

Awesome house! Awesome host!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best stay in MI we've ever had! Elaine's house is not only gorgeous, but very quaint. The downtown area is only a couple of minutes away and is great for breakfast, hiking, and night life. Would love to stay in their home again!

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a quiet residential area that is very spacious inside, clean and was well equipped with all our needs. The deck on back had a grill and was nice to sit with coffee and listen to the birds. It is perfect for a large group as well as a small one. It was great to be able to walk to nearby Douglas Beach and a 10 minute ride to Oval Beach, where the beach is big and beautiful with soft sand, it was great sunbathing, swimming and walking along the shoreline. While on our stay there was a transportation service you call and they will pick up at the house for a very nominal fee that took us to downtown Saugatuck for shopping and dinning. I will say no one on the trip had one bad thing to say about the food and there are plenty of shops to shop for yourself or souvenirs for family and friends.

The owner was pleasant to deal with and available for any questions I had prior to our arrival. I would recommend this property to friends and family and will go and stay there again hopefully soon.

Very nice!!

  • 4 of 5

A group of 12 woman rented this house and we were so happy we did. It's a spacious, well appointed and clean home. We visited Oval beach which was very close and convenient. We also rented a pontoon one day and ate in the wonderful town. We cooked on the grill and it was also so clean. Elaine is so nice and easy to work with. I recommend this home! Thank you Elaine

Great home for a beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for the Fourth of July weekend this year, and had a fantastic time! We were a group of 12 graduate/medical students (and one dog) and the home comfortably accommodated all of us. The house is very spacious on the inside, clean, and nicely decorated. The kitchen was fully stocked - it had salt/pepper, spices, olive oil, ice cube maker in the freezer (which was very useful), coffee maker, and lots of utensils, dishes, and pans. We were there for 3 days and only cooked at home for the entire trip. There is also a game room with a bunch of fun, old school electronic games. The backyard/porch was great for eating breakfast and grilling in the afternoon.

The house is located in a very pretty residential area, so it's best if renters are quiet (or move the party inside) after 11 PM. It's a 10-15 minute walk to the nearby Douglas Beach, and a 5-10 minute car ride from Oval Beach. The Saugatuck Dunes State Park is also nearby and a great place to hike and walk along the beach (we found this to be the prettiest beach in the area), and downtown Saugatuck/Douglas have a New-England-beach-town vibe that was really charming. We also took some time for fishing and kayaking down the nearby river.

The owner, Elaine, was very helpful and responsive throughout the renting process. Highly recommend this place for any bigger groups looking for a great beach/hiking/fishing weekend!
