River Groove is a great choice in Saugatuck!

  • 4 of 5
The cabin was amazing! We were looking for something unique, modern and quiet and that's exactly what we got. You never know what you'll get when you book a cabin online, and we've stayed in some pretty disappointing places, but River Groove will not disappoint. It is exactly as it is in the pics. The furnishings are all high-end and no detail was overlooked in the design. We are originally from Michigan and had a couple friends stop by for visits during the week and all fell in love with it! The location was also perfect for us - walking distance to both the beach and downtown Saugatuck, which is hard to come by in Saugatuck. Rob was always quick to respond throughout the entire booking process.

The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars was that we felt there could've been more paper products. There were only 4 of us in the cabin (2 adults, 2 children) and we were out of tp and paper towel within the first couple of days - the only tp was what was already on the dispensers and only one extra roll of paper towel so we had to buy more. Not a big deal, just a small detail to keep in mind. Also, the cabin wasn't as clean as I'd hoped for a cabin of this caliber. We are VERY picky so others may not agree with this. We happened to notice the living room hadn't been vacuumed underneath furniture (found lots of food crumbs under the chairs while looking for my daughters lost toy) and there was a lot of dust/cobwebs in some of the hard to reach yet very visible areas.
Overall though, this was the best cabin we've ever stayed and would definitely stay again. Thanks Rob for sharing it with us!

AMAZING COTTAGE!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the most relaxing vacations in recent memory for us! The location is PERFECT. Downtown Saugatuck is just a quick ferry ride away! It was nice to enjoy all the fun in downtown, but be able to escape that and go back to this amazing cottage! The beach is walking distance from the cottage and we would jog there every morning! Talk about a dream come true! The cottage itself is so beautiful and unique, tranquil and relaxing. I felt so very relaxed. The bottom line is that is an amazing cottage, beautiful and THE PERFECT LOCATION! Close to everything, yet so very far away! AMAZING! A big thank you to Rob for sharing his beautiful summer home :)

Perfect secluded location to recharge

  • 5 of 5
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.

Exactly what everybody needs.

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

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!
