Year Purchased: 2013
About: Hi, I'm Kathy, The Cottage Concierge. I'm helping my owner, Mike. I'd be happy to share a bit about 'Fernwood' and Mike. Mike bought the cottage last year. He loves homes, cottages, architecture and the Saugatuck / Douglas area. He also loves to entertain and... he loves The Beach! So Fernwood and Mike are a perfect fit.
Why Douglas, MI, USA:
Mike purchased Fernwood because he loved the location. Just a few minutes and you're on the beach enjoying the sun and surf. It's also been a wonderful place for him to entertain and to host his family treasures. He comes to stay and enjoy this new, unique place but he is pleased to be able to share it with others that they might also experience this wonderful place!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Open design, packed with style. Amazing location, close to everything. New to market, Prime times available!
