About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
The three Baker davenports in the adjoining living room face the water and a large gasburning fireplace; they open through French doors to a screened porch overlooking the water and the park next door. This leads to the large deck with a gas grill off the kitchen, also overlooking the water. The kitchen, upstairs, is pictured with its charming all glass eating area, granite counters, stainless appliances and bar.
There are three bedrooms and three bathroom on this level, two with king sized beds and one with two queens. Only the bedroom with the queen size beds does not face the water. All other bedrooms and rooms have the wonderful view.
Downstairs you will find 10 foot ceilings and all but one bedroom overlooking the waterfront. You will enter the second kitchen in the large glass room with a pool table. Adjoining this room is a large downstairs living room with the second TV area, a large sectional and the second gas burning fireplace. This house is designed with the idea of a large family get-together, a large family, two families, or for corporate groups. On this level you will find the computer with hi-speed internet.
The downstairs kitchen also has a double door refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, gas stove, compactor, and stools for four at the granite counter.
Upstairs has a large deck with gas grill, downstairs has patios, swings, furniture and a charcoal grill.
Bayou House is ideal for families, business groups, and reunions but is not suitable for weddings as we are located in a downtown area.
On the lower level there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a king size bed and one with two twin beds.
There is tie up space on the boardwalk for several shallow draft boats and there are five kayaks, a row boat, and two paddle boards on the dock. There is a firepit and seating near the waterfront.
It is one short block to two major restaurants, galleries, and downtown Douglas. The well-known Lake Michigan Oval beach and Douglas Beach are a short-beautiful drive.

The City of Douglas does not permit weddings at this location. You may check out the J Petter Gallery, wine Bar and Gallery Barn for wedding venue.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I have been in business in Saugatuck/Douglas since 1973 when I first opened my art gallery - it is still just up the street. It now includes a wine tasting and is operated by my daughter-in-law. I grew up in Chicago, lived in Michigan cities, moved to Cincinnati, and finally moved back to the big Lake. We have had property on the lake since the 60's and were pleased to add Bayou House to our business. All the art in the house is from my gallery. And, it was a necessity that Bayou House had to be on water!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The benefit of this house is that you can use boats on the lake, kayaks, row boat and paddle boards, and still have the advantage of the beach at the Oval. There are no places to stay at the Oval so everyone comes from some part of the community. There are well over 200 acres of dunes to explore as well as the wonderful beach. And you can return to watch the birds, the boats, and have a fire in the fire pit.
