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.

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!
My husband and I plus another couple spent a week here. We love Saugatuck and have had great experiences renting from VRBO. Not this time, and the owner would rather keep our rent money AND our deposit than keep a satisfied customer. We left the place cleaner than we found it and she would not refund our deposit. The couch was all ripped up, the beds were terrible, there was dog hair all over the place, the sheets and towels were old and the whole place was dirtily and it smelled like mold. I would not recommend this to anyone. Few of the photos on line represent reality. To top it off, the next door neighbors liked target practice at night with their guns.
My husband and I decided we needed to get out of IL for a weekend, but we hate boarding up our two dogs. We ended up going with another couple who also had a puppy and it was the best thing! There is so much space for the dogs to run around. We enjoyed our stay as well! The house was very clean and all the lights were on when we got there, just in case we did get there in the dark we could see where we are going. It is in a great location if you want to have the private feeling. The hot tub was definitely a hit. Only thing is that that when we showered there was no hot water, HOWEVER that is due to us not turning on the hot water heater! The place is great and I highly recommend it! Downtown Saugatuck actually had a small music fest, so that was nice to go see! During the day there is plenty to do as well..and it is only a short drive to town! We are currently trying to figure out our next VRBO trip :) Thanks for a great first experience Roxanne!
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.
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.
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.
