Simple and rustic accommodations. Weather wasn't good which kept us inside most of the weekend. Main room comfortably accommodated 4 people, which is where we spent most of our time, in front of a nice fire.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you were able to make the best out of a gloomy weekend. Rainy weather is not our favorite either.. we hope you can come back and enjoy the Saugatuck/Douglas area on a sunnier weekend!

Great out. Great Beach. Keep an eye on little ones.

  • 4 of 5

First, I must say, Barbara & Mista were great. I booked the wrong dates and they were able to change them within an hour. They provided useful information on what to bring, what not to bring etc. They allowed for an early check-in and for my aunt to pick up the keys because we were still traveling there.

The House

While the house isn't super up to date, it was extremely clean. It’s more of a cabin than a ritzy house, which is exactly what we were looking for. All the rooms were super comfortable. Beds, sheets, blankets, etc. were clean and inviting. Carpet was pretty dates but that just made it feel more lake house like IMO. We brought two kids (3 and newborn) and we felt comfortable letting them roam around the house.

The Land

Letting our kids/dog roam and play freely around the land however was another thing. The land is next to a ravine/eroded land on one side of the house. It's a good 20-30ft drop down so we had to be extra careful with our dog and son. My father in-law made a joke that our dog would know not to go close. He was wrong. Our dog fell about 15ft down and bloodied up his nose. Toward the lake there are two paths, one that leads to a 50-60FT cliff/eroded sand. The second path goes to the beach and has stairs, which was great. Easy to get up and down (the stairs). Though, when the beach meets the stairs, they could make the transition easier. There were rocks to ease the transition but they were lose and difficult to manage. The neighbor made stairs for theirs (recommendation for owner).

The Beach

The beach is really what make this place awesome. It's pretty much a private beach all to yourself. There is a neighbor that has access as well but they weren't around. My son loved playing in the water and skipping rock. Sunset was great as it faces west.


As my wife said after leaving this cabin, "I feel so relaxed". This place is great. We will more than likely try to get back. However, it's not a 5 out of 5 just because of the dangerous ravines/cliffs. If I were the owner, this could be easily mitigated if there were some barn fencing/bottom half mesh, to deter the curious 3 year old from looking over the edge. If it were safer we would probably book this place 6x a year for the next 50 years :) (only kind of kidding)

Overall though super happy with our experience. I would give it at 4.9 out of 5 if I could

Bonus: it's in between Saugatuck and South Haven. There is a farm .3 miles that has fresh veg and fruit as well.
