OUR AWESOME LOCATION - THE ART COAST OF MICHIGAN:
ALLEGAN SHORES is a unique, super high-end, modern oasis. Situated on 3 acres, it is walking distance to beautiful woody hiking trails, stunning sand dunes, and in our opinion, the most gorgeous stretch of Lake Michigan beaches in the area. The setting is rural, peaceful and quiet, yet only a 10-minute drive to the towns of Saugatuck, Douglas, and Holland. Although you may never want to venture out, there is an incredible array of things to do in the area. Allegan County includes the townships of Holland, Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville – a community often referred to as the 'Art Coast of Michigan' because of its thriving arts scene including galleries, antique shops, studios, museums, and live theater. We are less than 5 minute drive to Lake Macatawa which offers boat & kayak rentals. 6 cool beach cruiser bikes & 2 kayaks are provided for your enjoyment.
New to the rental market as of 2017, this property is a truly unique vacation rental experience. The owner lives in the house year-round, but offers the rare opportunity to rent the house for only 2 weeks during the summer. So this could be either a 2-week rental for one party, or a 1-week rental for two different parties, or even a stay of 8-13 days. The house was COMPLETELY renovated in 2015 in an eclectic modern farmhouse style with a strong commitment to a white/neutral palate which evokes the sense of a luxurious peaceful relaxing getaway and allows the surrounding natural beauty to shine through the huge windows featured throughout the home. You will find that this property offers every amenity one could desire from a vacation rental, and much more. The house features hardwood floors throughout most of the home, dual-zone central A/C (separate A/C upstairs to keep things cool in the summer), and ambient, dimmable lighting. An entertainer's dream, ALLEGAN SHORES boasts 1 midcentury modern wood-burning fireplace, a great room with backyard & pool views, state-of-the-art SONOS stereo system with speakers throughout the inside & outside or of the property, high speed wireless internet & cable TV, with 1 55” LED flat-screen SMART TV with DVR, netflix and apple TV. The partially-finished spacious basement features a ping pong table, living area with flat screen TV & SONOS speakers, and additional sleeping accommodations. Careful attention has been paid to every detail to anticipate your basic needs and decadent desires.
THE OUTDOOR SPACE:

There are plenty of pool chairs, rafts, noodles and pool loungers. Beyond the fence, the yard backs up to another acre of prairie, trees, and a peaceful creek. You’ll also enjoy a fire pit surrounded by adirondack chairs, as well as a poolside midcentury modern propane firepit, AND a gas firepit coffee table as part of the outdoor sofa sectional, all perfect for bonfires and s’mores.
