Minutes from the Madness... Privacy for Gladness!

About B. C. W.
I was 16 when my grandfather willed me this old farmhouse. As a kid, I hated it! What kid would want to leave her suburb friends to spend time with an old man in the country to pick berries, catch gophers, and make homemade biscuits? No TV! Just stacks of newspapers, Reader's Digest and a transistor radio! "Going into town" was the only highlight. Although I hated it every moment, I look back and realize it was the best time of my life. Being a mother of 3, I wanted our boys to experience country life and we have spent many a day in town, at the beach and around the fire in back. These indeed are the good old days!
B. C. W. purchased this Farmhouse in 1945
Why B. C. W. chose Saugatuck
Why stay in town? Nothing beats the seclusion and privacy you'll find at The Zoo. Greenery is the best scenery. You can walk in the woods, sing around the fire until the cows come home. In town, you'll be looking a someone else's backyard fence, smelling others barbecue and hearing others' dogs bark. Really? Really.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Secluded yet close to the action. Nights around the firepit gazing at the stars is the best way to end your day. You won't get any of this in town.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great Place for spending with Family!
Great place. Close to town and the beach. Quirky fun old house with lots of history and charm. We loved staying at The Zoo!!
Loved our stay. The Zoo has such character and personality. I loved the area being quiet and private with the benefits of a home. Will definitely stay again if available on our next visit.
We had a great experience. It was a great location, close to downtown Saugatuck and the beach.
Fun memories made
Great place to relax and disconnect, yet still be close to the beach and downtown. The zoo was as listed - nothing fancy, but fun! Our kids enjoyed the old farm house and game room.
Everything was very nice. We would
definetly tent here again.
Perfect home for a few days away
The owner of this home keeps the house stocked full of everything you could need for time away. There was games, wifi, clean linens, coffee, charcoal, fire pit and everything in between. The house is tucked away to make you feel away from it all but it's just a few miles from downtown Saugatuck and the shoreline. We LOVED our stay and will definitely be renting at the Zoo again 🌞
