Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

PEACEFUL, PRIVATE, and PERFECT... will describe your vacation when you join your family and friends at the Harmony River House. Harmony River House is a tranquil and private home set on one acre of woods, overlooking the Kalamazoo River and only 10 minutes from town. The peaceful setting in the woods is incredible; there is a scenic view out every window. Beautifully decorated with special touches throughout, you will feel like you are home.

The ultra-clean furniture and high thread count linens are incredibly cozy. Recently renovated with hard wood floors, the open floor plan and clean, well-stocked kitchen inspire memorable gatherings with family and friends. The wood burning fireplace and hot tub will keep you warm on snowy winter nights. The layout is perfect for two couples or a family.

You will enjoy reading, playing board games, Foosball, darts or the kid’s train table on the large screened-in porch. Just beyond the screened porch sits the hot tub and wood deck overlooking the Kalamazoo River. We have a canoe available for trips up the river. All these areas offer a different way to relax and enjoy the views of the river. A camp-style fire pit gently illuminates the tall trees of the surrounding woods.

Guided canoe tours or private Jet Boat tours are available through a local outfitter. You will spot Bald Eagles and other birds and animals while you travel on the Kalamazoo.

A family getaway, a girls or guys weekend, or a romantic hideaway - the Harmony River House is just right! You will not be disappointed.

9 years in the vacation rental business has taught us how to balance style, function, comfort, and amenities to give you a carefree vacation experience. Please read our guest comments, we enjoy providing our guests with a memorable vacation experience.

Wonderful Clean, Private, Large Rental Close to Saugatuck!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time to this rental. For us, it was perfect. I loved the Oriental Décor! Very comfortable and large. Very clean! The hot tub overlooks the river and is very private! The fact that we could bring our dog made this place perfect for us! The refrigerator was a tad small, but good for the two of us. I liked the retro look. I think I would be a bit afraid of small children trying to go down the steep steps to the river, but the front yard is big. The second bedroom and bathroom are detached from the house. There is a separate outside entrance. This could be ideal for another couple, but I think people with small children might possibly be disappointed with this arrangement. The furniture is comfortable and clean. Woods are all around the place. We loved the seclusion! I would & have recommended this place to others.

Peaceful and private location

  • 5 of 5
One of the cleanest places we have ever stayed at! The short 10 to 15 minute ride into town was worth the trip from a secluded and peaceful surrounding. My son enjoyed the separate bedroom/bathroom space that he could have as his own space. The large porch provided a lot of fun family time playing fussball and ping pong too. Only negative was not having a washing machine and dryer available.

Outstanding retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This place is perfect for everybody -- romantic couples, families with kids, groups of friends! My partner and I came for the tulip festival in nearby Holland, and were joined by a couple of Michigander friends. There was plenty of room, the house was immaculate, and all of the amenities were just terrific -- from the perfect fire pit, complete with plenty of provided firewood -- to the roomy hot tub overlooking the river (and even though it was ~40f at night, it was plenty warm with a terrific view of the moon and stars!) -- the game room, the horseshoe pit, the comfy beds and fluffy towels, etc, etc! We didn't even use half of the amenities (outdoor chiminea, indoor fireplace, tv) -- but we had a blast, and it was so comfortable and relaxing! The location is terrific (though you'll want to ensure that you get all of your supplies for the day before you return to the house; it's only a 10-15 minute drive to the nearest store, but it gets old when you go 2-3 times a day!). Very close to Saugatuck/Douglas; Douglas is cute -- but Saugatuck is absolutely wonderful for dining, shopping, strolling, art -- so friendly and fun. I will absolutely rent this again when I'm up that way, it was well worth it!

Romantic Weekend at Harmony River House!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our five year anniversary at harmony river house, and we had a very relaxing and romantic weekend at the cabin. The indoor and outdoor fireplaces, as well as the charcoal grill, gave us plenty of chances to relax by the fire. The hot tub is incredible and the view of the river is great. We also had a chance to drive 15 minutes into Saugatuck for a relaxing day in the town.

Know Before You Go (But GO...you'll love it!)

Know Before You Go (But GO...you'll love it!)
  • 5 of 5
My family (my husband and I and our two children, 8 and 10) had a lovely stay here in the Fall. Do plan to arrive during daylight, as the private drive is difficult to navigate in the dark. What we did not know, as it is not stated in the listing or in any pre-stay communication with the owner is that there are two bedrooms, but one of them needs to accessed from the OUTSIDE. It has it's own separate deadbolt and is separate from the rest of the house other than sharing a wall. This bedroom does have it's own on-suite bathroom. We spent the night of our arrival trying to figure out how to get the kids to sleep separate from us, how they should let us know if they needed us in the night (bang on the common wall) and whether or not to lock either and/or both of the bedroom doors, as both open to the outside. Eventually, we became comfortable with the sleeping arrangements (the kids even ended up calling it their "apartment"), but if our children were much younger this would have caused major problems requiring my husband and I to split up and each sleep with a kid (NOT my idea of a vacation). Bedroom surprise aside, we LOVED the property and the amenities: hot tub, river, game room, etc. and look forward to returning again. It is a beautiful natural setting with easy access to "civilization," should you choose to explore it. Grand Rapids ended up being much closer than we thought and we would recommend lunch at Founder's Brewery...we knew the beer was outstanding, but the food was excellent as well and we all had fun!

Peaceful, quiet, relaxing and serene

  • 5 of 5
The property was exactly as described. It is a beautiful location right on the Kalamazoo River and a perfect spot for launching a kayak. Easy drive to Saugatuck and Douglas for lunches and shopping. The hot tub was a nightly treat as the stars came out. The house was furnished with everything I could need. If you're looking for a spot for your kids to make friends, or to play on the beach, this isn't it. If you're looking for absolute privacy and quiet, this is the place to be!

The bed was comfortable, the bathrooms well stocked with fluffy towels and the kitchen had everything I needed to cook basic meals when in the mood. You'll need 3G access for the internet and the channels are just local, but there is a nice selection of DVDs to watch and video games for the kids. I highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway or a relaxing girls week or weekend.
