Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Hi, we're Andrew & Kate. We moved to Saugatuck in 1991, fell in love with the town, and have lived here full-time ever since. We bought the Red House in 1992 and lived there until 2006, spending the first five years on major renovations. When we moved (a few blocks away) in 2006 we couldn't give up the house, so now it's a vacation rental! We have one son, who attends the local high school.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck, MI, USA:
We've lived in Saugatuck full-time since 1991. We love the people here, the charming downtown, great shops and restaurants, and the breathtaking coastline. We enjoy boating, Oval Beach, music in the park, art galleries, special events, and just taking in everything Saugatuck has to offer. We often go a whole weekend without getting in a car, since we can walk or bike wherever we want to go. Saugatuck can be what you want it to be: relaxing, friendly, laid-back; a party town; a mecca for the arts; a nature-lover's paradise; and family-friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Renters tell us they love the convenient location (walk to town, but quiet) and the casual, comfortable feel of the house. A first-floor queen bed and full bath is ideal for folks who have trouble with stairs. Kids love the play area. (The house sits on an oversized lot back from the street, making it safer for little ones.) Pet owners appreciate being able to bring their dogs (with permission).
