Destination guide

On the pretty edge of Michigan in Allegan

Built with ransom money won by the capture of a Confederate president during the Civil War, Allegan certainly has a unique origin story to tell. It's also still got the fruits of that former glory – you can spy out the elegant Victorian and antique mansions of the soldiers who received the payoff, as the buildings still pepper the historic district. More recently, Allegan vacation rentals have also become a hub for travelers heading to laze on the powdery sand beaches of Saugatuck, to ride the protected dunescapes there, or to enjoy the countryside delights along the Kalamazoo River.

Things to do

Between the historic facades of Allegan

You don't have to look far from an Allegan vacation rental to find a handsome piece of architecture. From the redbrick rises of Trowbridge Street to the manicured rowhouses of Locust Street, the whole town center is a veritable attraction in itself. Then, you can start to look further afield, for the draws of greater Allegan County. They range from the popular summertime haunts of Oval Beach on Lake Michigan to the wild undulations of the Saugatuck Dunes State Park, where Jeeps rumble over the ridges and down to the water's edge.


Beaches beckon close to Allegan

Because Allegan is often seen as a base for exploring the pretty eastern shores of Lake Michigan, the town is always at its busiest during the summer months. They run from late May to September, and are the perfect time to bag a charming hunter's lodge with views over the Kalamazoo River creeks, or to book yourself a family cabin in the Michigan woods. Winter also draws some travelers, who often come touting skis and salopettes, ready for the pistes of the nearby Bittersweet Resort.
