Property description

Rosie's is an adorable, comfortable cottage located just 2 blocks from Lake Michigan and Douglas Beach. A quick 10 minute drive will get you to Saugatuck's OVAL BEACH-one of the best in the USA. Sleeping accommodations provide privacy and flexibility for families and friends. Between the two SCREENED PORCHES, lower level den, living room, and reading nook there are numerous places to relax, gather and entertain. The spacious stone patio is a great spot for hanging out and grilling. It also includes an outdoor shower.

The charming cottage is tastefully decorated, clean, and very comfortable for groups of all sizes. The location of the property is perfect for nightly beach walks and to watch LAKE MICHIGAN SUNSETS. It's only a short drive or bike ride to downtown Douglas or Saugatuck for dining and shopping. Explore the art galleries, unique shops, beaches, bike paths, antique shops, and wineries. Stop by the farm markets and pick seasonal berries. So much to enjoy you won't want to leave.
Rosie's rents Saturday to Saturday. Make your reservation now for the few prime weeks being offered summer of 2016!
