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!

This cozy cottage was perfect for our family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is charming. We enjoyed the sun porch for our family meals and the fire pit for late night chats. It was an easy walk to the beach for fun in the water as well as watching the amazing sunsets each evening. Thanks for sharing your adorable cottage!

Cozy Cottage Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Memorial Day weekend at this perfect cottage for two in a lovely section of Douglas - quiet, wooded, and with easy access to beach and Douglas/Saugatuck dining and shopping. No hidden "surprises" inside, as Jackie keeps the place immaculately clean, with comfy, tasteful furniture, a fully equipped kitchen and nicely landscaped grounds. We also loved the screened porch and outdoor patio too. What you see is what you get! We would definitely consider Writer's Cove again.

Douglas Best

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage & the terrific location a short walk to the beach, the lake lakeshore, downtown Douglas & Saugatuck . The private landscaped deck area is a real treat as well as the large sunroom. The cottage is well furnished & equipped for all your needs. We didn't want to leave!!!!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as discribed at this rental. Jackie was very quick about getting back to me about my questions. Location was perfect. Very close to market and Douglas. The best part was the back yard with the fire pit!
