The location of this home offers all the outdoor amenities that you can imagine. Walk to Oval Beach, take the Saugatuck Chain Ferry over to town - 'worry free parking because you don't have to!

Great Location for visit!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures and description of the property were generally accurate. The grill is no longer a charcoal grill but instead a gas grill, and the DVD player did not seem to function. The property did have a selection of board games as well as some old VHS tapes that worked on the VCR. The TV is an older CRT with no HDMI input.

The location was great though. It was a very short walk to the chain ferry which we took into and out of town frequently. It was also a very short drive to Oval beach. While it is in reasonable walking distance, the road to the beach was pretty hilly and basically has no shoulder, making it a bit of a tricky walk with strollers. Driving was fine though.

The beds were comfortable and the house was generally well provisioned. I think they probably could use some more towels given there is no washer or dryer, but we made do.

I would definitely consider renting the property again. I liked the secluded nature of being in the woods on the west side of the river, but still able to get into town very easily via the chain ferry.

Fairly accurately depicted in description/pictures. The couches were a little more worn than in the pictures. The linens were personal-type linens (various colors/prints/etc.) rather than uniform white commercial linens, but they were fine. There was a small problem with the unit when we arrived (wasn't cleaned yet and some window air conditioners weren't yet installed), but the rental company was very responsive in getting everything resolved quickly and gave us a reasonable compensation for the inconvenience. Bedrooms were reasonably sized; bathrooms were fine (good shower and hot water); kitchen felt a little larger than it looked in the pictures and was well supplied. Gas stove/oven. Not used to a gas broiler, but the gas cooktop was nice. 4 minute drive to Oval Beach. Nice deck with good outdoor furniture. Charcoal grill. Had a very good time.
