I live in Cleveland Heights Ohio and enjoy taking the 5 hour trip to Saugatuck as often as possible!

Rob purchased this cottage in 2007

I chose this property because of the location and smart, modern design of the house.

Perfect secluded location to recharge

We couldn't have been happier with this cottage. It had all of the amenities that one could hope for and then some. This place is more chic than some NYC boutique hotels we've stayed in. The owner was prompt in responding, very accommodating, and explaining the process. We loved coming here in the off-season as it's quiet and it's the perfect tonic to the daily grind. The photos of this place don't even begin to describe how quaint this place is. We're looking forward to coming back to this place soon.

Amazing place. I was worried about the process but everything was so easy and organized. The images doesn't give the house justice, it is perfect for a small group of friends or a couple wanting to get away. I recommend it to anyone in need of a short vacation.

Perfect Winter Getaway for Two

Saugutuck in the winter is so quiet and calm, we found just what we needed in Rob's cottage. We wanted to get away from the city and hole up for some peace and quiet, and we were able to do that. While the town is sleepy in the winter as a lot of things are closed, we still found plenty to keep us busy. The icy beaches were beautiful and we found lots of hiking trails to treck through despite the snow and had a blast. We saw more deer than people, and loved it, and still found some fabulous places to eat (Salt of the Earth, Everyday People Cafe, Pumpernickels, and nearby New Holland Brewery) The cottage itself is fabulous, and is exactly as wonderful as the pictures would imply. We did lots of cooking and thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace every night! And while there is a 2nd bedroom, we found it perfect for just the two of us! We will definitely be coming back, and our friends and family were so jealous, they will likely end up spending some time there as well!

Great winter escape

Rob's cottage was the perfect winter escape from the city. We were right across the river from town but the place was completely silent and wooded. And the hot tub in the frigid weather was a real plus. Brunch at the Everyday People Cafe lived up to the hype. Looking forward to returning someday!

Comfortable and Relaxing

River Groove is a relaxing and comfortable home with easy access to downtown Saugatuck and the beach. Unfortunately, we were not able to use the chain ferry due to the time of year, but it would have been perfect! River Groove is very well maintained. The hot tub was a wonderful perk! We had everything we needed in the kitchen and were able to make delicious dinners with ease. We would definitely recommend this home, and we hope to be back soon!

Notes:
River Groove is a modern urban cottage with a retro flair tucked in the wooded dunes. Many have called it a treehouse due to the height and surrounding trees. Watch for wildlfe including deer, owls, and many other interesting birds from the large screened second level porch. The location is private and peaceful yet just across the Kalamazoo River from all the action of downtown Saugatuck!
