DOWNSTAIRS: Bedroom #3-queen bed; Bedroom #4-queen bed; downstairs full bath. There are no other sleeping areas in the house.
Please note that the Red House was built in the 1870s and completely renovated in the early 2000s. It's not fussy, clean, full of character...and old. So try as we might, we can't guarantee you won't encounter the occasional spider or ant during June, or a bit of a draft in November.

About Kate, email@example.com
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.
Kate, firstname.lastname@example.org purchased this House in 1992
Why Kate, email@example.com chose Saugatuck
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.
What makes this House unique
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).

Clean, cozy, comfortable and charming!
Our family loved the charm of the house along with the very open feel. All of our cooks enjoyed the kitchen and the dining area served beautifully for family meals and competitive board games! Very picturesque neighborhood and a short walk to downtown.
We're so glad you enjoyed the house, Kathleen! Thanks for the review!
Perfect house!. Perfect location!
Very well kept.
Good place to meet with friends from Chicago, Ann Arbor, and Cleveland.
Enjoyed our stay for a girls weekend. Charming home with uniqueness all it's own. Older homes are a work in progress, believe me I know. In town location would gave worked out to walk but it rained/stormed so we had to hop in the car. Great stay and a suggestion would be to replace the squeaky mattress and flat pillows in back bedroom off kitchen. Also noticed water on floor in front of refrigerator when getting ready to leave. Coffee maker could be replaced? Lots of dried coffee on the plate that pot sits on. Can't be wiped clean.....Tub drain is really slow in down stairs bathroom. All in all we had a pleasant stay. Thank you for letting us stay in your home.
Glad you enjoyed your stay! We'll check the mattress and replace the pillows. Fridge leak is fixed.
More than enough room for four adults. Enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and side patio. Close to downtown and restaurants. Owner very accommodating and we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you so much for the kind words, Geneen! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Red House.
Comfortable house in perfect location
The Red House was exactly as pictured- great character with modern amenities. We loved the quiet location that was an easy couple blocks to shops and restaurants. The house was perfect for our group of 3 adults and 2 small children. We loved the play structure in the yard and used the nice selection of children's books and dvds. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was convenient to have the dishwasher. The bed linens, towels, and household products were of good quality. The owners responded quickly by text when we had questions and were easy to communicate with. Also, their "welcome book" was very helpful for area recommendations and instructions for checkout. The construction next door didn't impact our stay as we were there over the weekend, but the owners were courteous to let us know about it ahead of our stay. It was a wonderful weekend in Saugatuck and we hope to return.
(There is no longer any construction next door! Yay!)
Thank you so much for the great review, Elizabeth! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope you will chose the Red House again.
