Overview

Saugatuck / Douglas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Lake Front Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 7-8)

Relax and enjoy the simple pleasures in our charming two bedroom cottage on Hutchins Lake on a secluded wooded lot with beautiful views of the lake and Crane Orchards.

Unwind on 120 feet of lake frontage with sunbathing, swimming, boating, fishing, and water sports. Experience the peace and tranquility of Hutchins Lake with an early morning ride on our 2 person kayak, 3 person canoe, or bring your own boat and moor it to our pier.

Brower Cottage is located in Fennville Michigan, about 10 minutes from Saugatuck, Douglas, and Lake Michigan beaches. We are about a two hour drive from the Chicago loop.

Take a short drive to Oval Beach in Saugatuck to watch the sunsets on Lake Michigan or visit the tasting rooms at Fenn Valley vineyards and wine cellar. Shop for antiques and art at the shops and galleries in the Saugatuck / Douglas area. Walking distance from Crane Orchards and Pie Pantry for delicious fresh baked pies, sweet cherry picking in the spring, peach picking in the summer, and apple picking in the fall. Minutes from the Saugatuck Dunes State Park and Allegan State Game area for hiking, hunting, and cross country skiing.

perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Brower Cottage was perfect! The cottage is comfortable and clean. We've had some experiences with listings that didn't quite live up to the pictures or the description, but Brower Cottage is everything it claims to be and more! The lake is beautiful, the cottage is pretty and comfortable, the lot is private and wooded, and the location is perfect. It's a great getaway for a couple, or a family vacation for a family with kids and pets.

A lovely, restful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Brower Cottage was a wonderful spot for a getaway: charming, quiet, clean, well-appointed, and perfectly situated on a small bluff above Lake Hutchins. The view each day was spectacular from misty early mornings through sun-dappled afternoons and moonlit evenings. There is plenty to do in the area in addition to the water activities, and after 3 fun-filled days, my sister and I felt refreshed and rejuvenated. She uses a walker, so we particularly appreciated the openness of the layout, the largely uncarpeted floors, and the easy access to the deck and driveway. The only problem we had -- being long retired and technology-challenged 70-somethings -- is that we didn't understand how to work the TV/DVD/electronics set-up (although I'm quite sure any 10 year old could have done so without help!). The owner, Joe, was quick to help us with clear directions, and I think it's a testament to how he thinks ahead of his guests' comfort that he and his wife have the same set-up in their home in Illinois so that they are able to walk renters through any problems. We couldn't have asked for a more friendly, helpful landlord or a more perfect mini-vacation. I can't wait to return with other friends and family, and can recommend Brower Cottage for young and old without reservation.

Long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the Brower Cottage for three days last May for our anniversary. The property was beautiful; everything was clean and well maintained. We spent a lot of time outside by the water. The owner, Joe, is a great communicator. He recommended a few different places to go at our request. Side note, wine lovers, check out the Fennville Winery right down the street from the cottage. Cider lovers, check out Virtue Cider in Fennville. And, coffee lovers check out Uncommon Grounds in downtown Saugatuck.

The owner was/is an excellent communicator. We will be returning. Side bar; Sauatuck and Douglas are wonderful arty nearby towns to enjoy even off season!
