Writer's Cove, Chapter 1 is a darling,, immaculate, comfortable place to visit.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in Saugatuck celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. We definitely will return to Writer's Cove for another visit! We were so impressed by the attention to detail the owners have provided their guests from area information to everything you need at their home for a special get away. Jackie was an amazing contact person! She immediately responded to emails and went above and beyond with a special birthday treat, which we both enjoyed! We loved our time there!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Close to the water, saugatuck and Douglas. Great little yard with chairs and fire pit, table and grill. We grilled out a few times, the house had cable and Netflix For the kids. The neighborhood was quiet and we barely saw the neighbors. We had a really nice vacation.

Cozy, well-equipped cottage in a quiet, convenient location. Especially enjoyed relaxing in the sun room and looking out on the pretty yard.

Great Summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage. It was very clean, comfortable and well appointed for our every need. The cottage is in a quiet location but not far from the shops and restaurants in Douglas and Saugatuck. We enjoyed shopping and going to the near by beaches. I also appreciated Jackie's quick response to our questions. All and all a great place to make summer memories!

A comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax. The interior was clean and cozy, the outdoor landscaping was beautiful and created privacy. I hosted a small bachelorette party, which included a trip to Fenn Valley Winery, eating, playing games, a late night beach stroll, and a Sunday afternoon shopping in Saugatuck. There were great gathering spaces throughout the property - the sun room (which was our favorite), the fire pit, and the TV room. Thanks to Jackie for sharing her adorable cottage with us - we will definitely be back!
