BROWER COTTAGE - LAKEFRONT SECLUDED WOODED LOT ON HUTCHINS LAKE

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.

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.

Delightful Cottage, Beautiful location

A recent getaway with 5 ladies at Brower Cottage proved to be just what we all needed. Friends for over 40 years, we just wanted a quiet and comfortable place to celebrate friendship and share A LOT of laughter, love and tears. Brower Cottage was perfect in every way. Clean, perfectly maintained, location perfect and MORE than enough to do in the area. We spent our mornings all snuggled together on the couches and love seats overlooking the beautiful lake complete with swans, loons and early morning fisherman. We walked to the local orchards, shopped in Saugatuck and had a wonderful meal at The Everyday Peoples restaurant in Douglas. Everyone in town were so very friendly. Joe could not have been a more attentive host from the moment we inquired about the property to after our visit. We all decided that this location and property was ideal for us to gather every year. Thank you Joe for opening your home and providing all the comforts of home. We loved it so much we didn't even care that the coffee maker had a mind of its own. LOL We would all highly recommend this cottage.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Hearing stories like yours is what makes it all worthwhile for us. And sorry about the coffee maker! :-) We've already replaced it and will make sure it is in tip top condition for your next stay.

PERFECT - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Lake was shallow and safe for little ones, dogs loved it too
Cottage was very well stocked, very clean with good quality furniture - lots of DVD's and games but not required as the weather was so wonderful
The dock caught the sun in the morning and last thing in the evening, absolutely relaxing to sit there in the peace and quiet
We enjoyed the American traditions - smores over the firepit lit up by the stars over the lake, local apple picking, fishing from the kayak, found our way through the local corn maze - ribs on the grill (all firsts for this "English" family)
Great for little ones (our granddaughter of 18 months wanted to go in the water every chance she got, and the two labs had a great time too!!)
Our family had a wonderful time at this cottage and we are hoping to return next year
Highly recommended
Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the cottage! We hope to see you again soon!

From the breathtaking view of the Lake through the large living room windows to the many amenities available, we could not have asked for a more perfect vacation cottage. Dog friendly, waterfront, plenty of room for the whole family, full kitchen, large windows and natural light, firepit, grill, close proximity to downtown Saugatuck. THANK YOU!
Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to accommodate you again soon!
