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 Saugatuck

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.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family meets somewhere every year and this year we met in Saugatuck, MI. 12 of us met July 7-12 and it was probably the best get together we have had. Lots of room in the home. It was clean and neat when we arrived and everyone had room for a little privacy if they wanted. Saugatuck has plenty to do for everyone. We spent time on Sunday with a relative at a nearby lake. Sunday we went for a dune buggy ride and Monday we enjoyed a tall ship ride in Lake Michigan. If everyone wants, we would not hesitate to return to the same place again.

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
