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.

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

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.

Fun Family Getaway

My husband and I and our three adult sons had a great time at this private relaxing getaway. My favorite was the large screened-in porch where I sat and read and the boys played foosball. We roasted marshmellows and hotdogs on the fire pit, and at the end of a long day sightseeing, it was nice to come back to relax in the hot tub with enough room for all five of us. We did have a couple of concerns, but the owners came out right away to take care of them. It was a nice, relaxing vacation watching the river flow by and the hummingbirds dance in front of the picture window!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this vacation home with another couple and had a great time! We live in Chicago and don't get to do much outdoors.We enjoyed the amenities and especially had fun taking the canoe on the river. The hot tub was clean and had a great view. We and had a campfire going all day. We spent our second day downtown visiting the wineries and shops.The owner was very nice and responded to emails with questions about renting the home very promptly which is why we chose this rental over others. Would definitely go here again!

P.S. they allow dogs!

Relaxing...Peaceful....Quiet

Quiet...Relaxing...and off the beaten path... is what you'll find at the "Harmony River House". We stayed at Roxanne's other property in Saugatuck last year....I can guarantee this, her properties will be clean, well appointed and always a pleasure to stay at. The "River House" will provide you the peace and quiet you so desire, while keeping you within a 10 minute drive to downtown Saugatuck.

The outdoor Hot Tub over looking the Kalamazoo River was a nice treat to come home to after spending the day exploring what Southwestern Michigan has to offer.

If you enjoy the outdoors and a wooded setting... you can stop looking... The "Harmony River House" will meet all of your needs.

Roxanne is always a pleasure to work with and has ALWAYS gone out of her way to insure our stay was enjoyable....
