About the property

Situated atop a bluff on the old Douglas Golf Course, this 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath multi-level modern cottage offers a mid-century escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tastefully decorated with a nod to a bygone era, this house was recently featured in Grand Rapids Magazine. Relax before the fireplace while sipping a glass of wine and watching a flick on the massive 80” flatscreen TV, cook up your gourmet masterpiece in the full stocked chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances, bask on the sun deck in front of your private saltwater pool or watch the sunset over the ravine from the screened in porch. This house offers it all.

The main floor features a large open concept family room, dining area and kitchen. The master bedroom features a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom with large shower and double sink vanity. Just inside the separate mudroom entrance is another half bath and laundry area. The walk out basement features a large family gathering area with 3 more bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is a second master suite with ensuite bath with a shower. Bedroom 3 features 2 twin beds and bedroom 4 features a queen bed. These two bedrooms share a bathroom with a tub. All tubs and showers feature rain head shower heads.

Conveniently located within walking distance of all the bars, restaurants, galleries and shops in downtown Douglas, this luxury cottage is close enough to the hustle and bustle of town while affording the vacationer peace and privacy. If the beach is more to your liking, this house is within just a few minutes drive of both Oval and Douglas Beaches. But why drive, when 'Just Add Water' is right around the corner offering bicycles for rent (amongst other beach worthy supplies).

This home is perfect for friends looking for a Lake retreat, a family vacation or the couple looking to escape it all.

Loved the decor and high quality appointments in the house. Great beds and kitchen. Stayed in the winter but would love to come back and enjoy the outdoor areas. Very close to town and the beach.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited from Chicago during the winter. A wonderful find. The property is ideally located near downtown Douglas/Saugatuck and very close to Oval beach (walkable during summer).

The house was modern and everything was very clean. We were concerned with some of the other rental options in the area (old and dated) but as soon as we walked in here we knew we made the right decision. Open kitchen concept modern but with charm. Large LCD TV (huge) with wood-burning fireplace.

Bedroom rooms were good sized with en-suite bathrooms so there was no fighting for which bedroom to take (very important).

The house has outdoor swimming pool and firepit but since it was winter we didn't use...although from the looks of it we would enjoy during the summer season.

It felt like staying at a resort (a good thing) rather than someone's home.

We look forward to a return visit!

Absolutely beautiful. Great location. Private pool is amazing. Patio and screened porch are perfect for family meals and afternoon naps. Loved the huge sectional and extra large screen TV. Beds were so comfy! We will definitely return!

Such a beautiful house, pool and property! The location is truly perfect, the amenities in the house are so well appointed. We were able to enjoy so many meals at the house due to the beautiful kitchen, dining spaces and ability to create great meals in this space. We enjoyed every aspect of this home and hope to return soon!

Amazing Week in Douglas, MI

  • 5 of 5

As we drove up to the house the first time, it seemed like a nice and neat place. But it's not until you walk inside and view the back yard from the screened porch that you realize this is truly an amazing property. The pool area, fire pit and landscaping are the hidden jewels that you do not see from the road side. The privacy and heated temperature of the salt water pool made it so enjoyable, that we found ourselves visiting the beach only to watch the sunsets. Unlike any other rental we've experienced (and there have been many), this home was far more equipped and stocked than any other place we've stayed. By far, our best girls vacation yet. Thank you to the home owners for sharing this beautiful property.
