Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the cozy accomodations for our fall getaway. The web site does not do justice for this nice home, to our pleasant surprise. We totally agree that Everday People Cafe isa must. Your choice of books, art and furniture makes us feel right at home.

Beautiful, charming get-away

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do justice to this lovely cottage! The property is clean and family friendly-- filled with books, extra blankets, and even a few games. There were plenty of linens available and even chairs for the beach. We never met the owners in person but the lines of communication were open via email. They were always helpful and informative, they even gave us directions and recommendations for places to visit. We loved everything about Saugatuck! Our favorite restaurant was The Everybody Cafe and the dune rides and the boat ride at sunset are can't miss attractions. We can't wait for a return visit. Thanks so much James and Rene!

Quiet, clean and relaxing. Favorite spot!

James & Rene are the best! Stayed here in 2011 solo, and brought my wife last year. It's quiet, cozy and a perfect getaway for two. Affordable, clean and a pleasant walk to downtown Saugatuck. I'll be staying here as often as possible!

Best Place to stay in Saugatuck

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening this lovely cabin to us. We spent weeks trying to find a place in Saugatuck, and were seriously disappointed at the prices--I could have rented a place in Maui for what people are charging in the middle of a Michigan winter! Ridiculous. The prices here are so reasonable, and the cottage is beautiful, exceptionally clean and quiet. James was very easy to work with. It may be a little off the beaten path, but Saugatuck is so small that we were able, even at the end of December, to walk downtown with 2 small children-no problem. We clearly didn't get beach time, but I will definitely look for availability here first the next time we come to Saugatuck, no matter what the season.

Charming, Reasonable Cottage, very close to town.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience at Happy Hill. I agree, the pictures really don't do the inside justice. It was modern with a few eclectic & antique pieces to add interest. We were very comfortable and appreciated being able to bring our dog. The description was very accurate and it was extremely clean! We met James who we could contact if needed, but wasn't intrusive. We grilled out the first night and found most everything we needed. The other two nights we went to the Belvidere and Everday People in Douglas. The Belvidere is upscale but not out of reach. It was worth EVERY penny! Everyday People is more casual, but still excellent food! We toured the steam ship which was very interesting! I did some heavy duty shopping...lol! There were a lot of sales after the season & started my shopping for Christmas! Our dog loved the dog park which wasn't very far. She ran free in the woods @ Tails & Trails, and made some new friends! It was the price that sealed the deal! We spent a relaxing couple of days. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Next time!

Elegant, new home for quiet time

  • 5 of 5
I recommend this place to folks looking for quiet time and space to enjoy the sunlight in a small town. Plenty surrounds to do, and I highly recommend a car or bike trip to the Saugatuck Nature Habitat Area's dune trails or a kayak in the river. My partner and I enjoyed the DVD selections and breakfast on the beautiful mid-century furnishings.

Loved Happy Hill

  • 5 of 5
Our group stayed over the labor day weekend. We loved our visit. The owners were fantastic. We adored the "look" of the place...extremely charming! The owners have thought of everything - chairs, umbrella for the beach, grill, etc. We really want to come back!!!!

Saugatuck and Douglas are harbor villages that celebrate diversity--small-town America at its best! Here visitors turn back the pages of time to enjoy a simpler life where no one hurries and no one hurries you, a place where everyone is special and everyone is welcome.

While visiting either downtown area, you can walk - in a safe and friendly environment - to almost everything. In Saugatuck, you can stroll along the boardwalk admiring the boats or explore the dockside shops. Picnic by the gazebo in Wicks Park overlooking the harbor. Ride a Victorian hand-cranked ferry. Rent a canoe, charter a sailboat or tour our waterways onboard an old-fashioned sternwheeler, dinner cruiser or W.W.II amphibious 'duck' vehicle.

For over a century, artists have been drawn to the towering dunes, pristine beaches and other natural splendors of this jewel-like setting on Lake Michigan.
