Very nice home just a few minutes walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 kids (age 6 and 9) stayed at this home for 7 days. The house was the perfect size for our family. Kids had their own room, with their own beds. This is great when you want to wind down at night and watch a little TV in the living room. The house is very well maintained and very clean. There is a beautiful deck and patio in the back where we were able to use the fire pit (wood provided) to hang out in the evening and make some smores for the kids. The beach is so close, you can walk there in the morning, come back home for lunch and then go back again. No car needed! This was perfect for our family.

One more thing...the owner, Jackie is very accommodating. We had a brief internet issue and she was immediately got the management company involved to come over and fix it. She even offered to compensate us for the trouble...very nice touch.

We will definitely be back next summer.

Charming Cottage 5 minutes from Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Douglas, with this cottage as our base. It really is only a 5 minute walk to the tiny (but very nice) Douglas Public Beach. The decorating is lovely and the back yard (deck, grill, patio) is welcoming. The house was clean and comfortable. I'd stay here again and I would recommend it to friends. It was very easy to work with Jackie for the rental: she's timely and organized.

We didn't do much cooking--but the coffee maker works and there are nice big cups for coffee. In addition, we recommend Wild Dog Grille and The Kirby for good dining in Douglas.

Quaint and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Writer's Chapter 2 house. It was decorated beachy cute inside and out, super clean and well appointed with everything you need on vacation! We loved walking around the beautiful neighborhood, running along the coast, sunning at the beach and exploring Saugatuck. The back patio was a relaxing place to admire the forest and birds, play family games (provided at the house) and grill. Suagatuck is a quaint town with great restaurants and shops and very dog friendly! Hercules was our favorite restaurant. We highly recommend this great home!!!

Comfortable, clean and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

The two of us with our 11 year old grandson enjoyed our stay! The kitchen is well-stocked with newer pans and utensils. Having internet access kept us connected with the world. We visited the area tourist attractions, sampled the restaurants, and strolled through the cute towns. The grill is the nicest we have found at a rental. We sat on the patio in the late evenings with a gathering around the fire pit using the supplied wood. Our grandson helped with our fire and we chatted there until bedtime. Do take kindling if you want to use the fire pit. Groceries and beach supplies are close by. The short walk to sandy Douglas Beach maximized our time on the the lake. Bring your beach chairs.The house is in a quiet location. We hope to visit again!

Relaxing weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We visited Douglas as part of a girl's weekend getaway; it was the perfect place to visit! The cozy home is nestled in a quiet area surrounded by greenery and other beautiful lake homes. We were so close to the beach (a 5 minute walk) and really enjoyed going on a long walk throughout the town--there are so many great homes to see and the views of the lake are spectacular. I must also mention that the patio area in the back of the home is BEAUTIFUL! We absolutely enjoyed spending time out there. Jackie was very accomodating, easy to communicate with (I always got a quick response), and we were SO appreciative of the fact that our pup was able to accompany us on this trip (she too loved the house and surrounding area). We will definitely return when the time calls for another weekend getaway.
