Overview

Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

Looking for seclusion? This beautiful spot is a must!

Though Indian Pointe can accommodate up to five people, it is best appreciated as a romantic hideaway for 2. Enjoy all the comforts of home and more, while you relax in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the Kalamazoo River and Potawatomie Marshlands.

Bird-watch from the screen room, ride your mountain bikes, kayak through the marsh, cross-country ski, take your puppy for a long walk in the woods, then cook in or out...all with a view to behold. Chances are you won´t want to leave to dine out, but fine dining options in Saugatuck & Douglas are only a moments drive away.

Cedar walls, vaulted ceilings and an entire east wall of glass blend the house with its surrounding 2 acres of woods and river front. Snuggle in front of the fire, share wine on the screened deck, fish from the seawall, spot bald eagles circling the marsh, and listen to the ancient cries of the Sandhill cranes without leaving the property.

A 5 minute drive places you in the heart of Saugatuck, and in 7 minutes you can be stretched out on Lake Michigan´s Oval Beach, rated one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in the country! So whether your vacation plans include wild life or the WILD life, Indian Point will be one spot you must revisit time and again.

About Lynda (616) 836-2719 or Jody (269) 760-1566

Joe and Lynda Petty moved to Saugatuck in 1983 when they purchased The Park House and converted it into a bed and breakfast. Falling in love with the area, we purchased the property at Indian Point to have a place to 'retire' once our innkeeping days were done. Indian Point was the first property in our rental program and it became such a successful rental that we only get to use it ourselves a few weeks a year.

Lynda (616) 836-2719 or Jody (269) 760-1566 purchased this house in 1995

Why Lynda (616) 836-2719 or Jody (269) 760-1566 chose Saugatuck / Douglas

The first time we took a drive down 131st Street we both said, 'Boy, we could sure live here!' Ten years later we needed a break from the inn so we took a drive to an advertised open house. When we walked in the door and looked over the marsh we decided we had to have the house. Even though it was the Saturday of Labor Day , we put the deal together before the end of the weekend.

What makes this house unique

Our 2 favorite activities are relaxing in front of the fireplace and sitting in the hot tub! We never even turn the jets on, preferring instead to hear all the sounds of the marsh at night. The grandsons really like fishing from the seawall and taking the 2 person kayak around the marsh is a wonderful way to touch nature.

Indian Point

  • 5 of 5
What a gem! This space surpassed the expectations of me and my travel pal! It has everything you could ever need, including a washer and dryer- but most of all it provides a solace within its walls and many windows with views of of the Kalamazoo river and a vast marsh beyond, within a woodland setting, yet offers the convenience of closeness to Saugatuck, Douglass, or any nearby community within a minutes drive- for any of the desired local activities. the pictures do not serve to relate the experience that awaits you in this little gem in the woods! I only had to raise my head, upon waking, to see a most mystical view of the slow flowing river accompanied by a mist that waned as gently as the river flowed. I am more than moved by this experience- and many who wrote in the guest book had expressed the same. Indian Point is a space that fulfills every need one could imagine for a a Saugatuck stay. It is truly a space to experience. I have shared its whereabouts with so many of my friends and clients, and will be returning myself very soon.A great place for one to 5 people..a full panoramic view encompasses the entire back of the property with a screened in porch to hang out on at night or whenever. It has a kayak and you can BBQ if so desired. Walking around the property is awesome and very serine- yet it has enough technology to offer a grid into the outer world, complete with an amazing sound system and flat screen TV..right next to the wood burning stove for winter guests. Thank you, Lynda and Jody- you offer an amazing space! Much gratitude and love for the experience- I can't wait to get back to Indian Point., I feel like I need to go back and spend a month just being there- maybe wright a book- or fall in love! A great space to take my grandchildren to, as well- so versatile and amazing :) What a gem this space is!

Enjoying the marsh and beyond

  • 5 of 5
We always enjoy our visits here, overlooking the marsh with its cranes, swans and other various birds and animals and beautiful sunrises. Place is as described and would definitely recommend to a friend or relative. Owner responsive to questions or concerns. Relaxing and romantic. Close to many great restaurants in Douglas, Saugatuck and Fennville and not far from Holland. Also wineries, breweries, meat and farmers markets, creameries and bakeries.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Indian Point for a long anniversary weekend. We just wanted to get away and relax for a few days, and this is what we needed. We spent most of our time just hanging out and watching movies that we picked up on the way. The logistics were quite simple, getting into the place and getting settled in. The only challenge was figuring out which light switches turned on which lights. (There are 8 or 9 switches all on the hallway wall as you come in.)

The kitchen is well-equipped. The place really has everything you need. The wireless Internet worked fine. We enjoyed the sunshine in the morning over the marsh. We enjoyed the hot tub on a cold December night. We enjoyed watching about 7 movies and reading a little over the 3 days. We drove into Saugatuck for dinners - about 5 miles each way. The place was very clean. The only downside we could think of is that the place and the furniture is dated - but it is certainly cozy and comfortable. We were too lazy to start a fire, but there were instructions for that too.

We recommend Indian Point.

wonderful, relaxing home close to Saugatuck

  • 5 of 5
We just arrived home from our second stay at this wonderful little house. Both times it was just my husband and I (along with our little dog). We found it to be absolutely perfect for us. It is only 5 minutes away from all the shopping and dining of Saugatuck and yet you are in a peaceful, relaxing, quiet spot on river's edge.

The pictures are accurate, but don't really do the house justice since you can't capture the warm and inviting feeling the owners have created with this special house. You feel like you're welcomed into a friends' home, rather than just being renters.

The house and property is very clean and well maintained. You will not want for anything since the house is so well stocked.

Both times all the communications with the owners was prompt, friendly and efficient.

Both stays we intended to do more in Saugatuck, but we enjoyed the house so much we ended up staying there more than we'd planned to kayak, sit on the swing down by the river, enjoy a glass of wine in the screened in dining area, soak in the hot tub, read out books on the back deck area, and watch the birds and wildlife. When we did venture into Saugatuck we enjoyed good restaurants, browsing interesting shops, and biking.

This is a perfect romantic retreat for couples who enjoy being in a beautiful, serene environment together while being close to a town with nice amenities. We are already looking at our calendar, trying to figure out when we can come for our third visit!
