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.
Kathy Sarkisian ~ The Cottage Concierge purchased this cottage in 2013
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!
Open design, packed with style. Amazing location, close to everything.
New to market, Prime times available!
The house was clean & cozy. The kitchen dishes, utensils, cooking pots and pans were more than we ever expected. The supply of towels & linens well exceeded what was needed. The only thing missing was an extra powder room/half bath. Location was great, just a 5 minute walk to the Douglas beach & the lake could be seen & heard from the back porch. We really enjoyed the screened in back porch especially in the late evenings and on the two days it rained. The location of the house was also ideal, quiet and safe.
We just finished 12 days at Fernwood. The location could not be more convenient and the porch and back deck provide a park-like setting that captures the beauty of Lake Michigan summers. You can easily walk to the public beach or stroll on Lakeshore Drive at sunset. The home has all the necessary conveniences and comfortable beds. Kathy, the Cottage Concierge is the perfect property manager, making herself completely available to ensure that everything is just as you like it! We recommend this rental and would certainly go back.
Our week was fabulous. The area of Douglas had lots to do and see. The house had some issues. The carpets looked awful although we were told it was cleaned. We had no internet so they tried to help us out for tow of our guests(one had online training to do and the other had to registered for university classes) one sat out in the yard to get intranet and the other spent 4 hours sitting in a cafe in saugatuck by himself. the kitchen was nicely stocked for cooking every night. the back porch was fantastic, we ate out there almost every night. Thanks
Close to all the action or get away from it all, relax & unwind...
A short walk to Douglas beach where you can enjoy the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline, the warmth of the sun and sand between your toes. Picturesque views!
Great eateries, local history & museums, beachcombing & water activities, shopping & antiquing, micro brewery & winery nearby... and so much more!
