Perfectly wonderful!

I rented this house for my family (five adult siblings with spouses and kids) and could not have been happier with the accommodations. The layout is spacious and affords plenty of room for large families or groups. There is ample driveway parking (which is a huge plus). The house is well-maintained and offers so many "extras" that we never once bemoaned the fact that we forgot something. The owner has thought of nearly everything to make your stay enjoyable.

The property itself is fairly private and located in a quiet area. Lakeshore Drive offers a great venue for long walks (in either direction). The yard, decks, porch, and sunroom offer plenty of seating/eating space. The kitchen never feels crowded (even with kids under foot). There are plenty of comfy chairs in quiet places if you wish to read in solitude. The game room is a great diversion for the kids after a day at the beach (which is an easy 5-10 minute walk, even for the little ones). The adults loved the Wii (maybe more than the kids). Once the kids are asleep, the hot tub is a heavenly resting place.

Downtown Saugatuck and Douglas are minutes away. I rode my bike to breakfast nearly every morning (try Ida Red's--great food). Everyday People Cafe is nice for dinner. My family did a dune ride which was loads of fun. Kayaking is also easily accessible.

As my sister-in-law commented when we left, "there is not a negative associated with this house." Needless to say, we are returning in 2010.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary,
I am so happy you enjoyed our home by the waves. We are looking forward to you returning and adding more memories. We've added a new poker table for texas hold em fun. We now have a radio flyer little red wagon to tow your goodies to the beach. I hope next year you get a chance to enjoy the local wine tours.
Thanks again, Margaret

Perfect getaway for the entire family!

We rented this lovely home for a mini family reunion. There were 10 adults and 7 children. We all had a blast! The house was big enough for everyone to have their own space and the dining/kitchen area was great because we could all sit together and hang out. The adults loved the hot tub and the kids loved the fabulous yard with the playset and the game room!

Upon check in everything was spotless, incredibly clean and organized. The kitchen had every appliance you can think of. The beds were super comfy! The location is beautiful and very close to the beach.

The owner, Margaret, was wonderful and provided amazing customer service. Thanks for providing the perfect house for an amazing week!
Owner's Response: Thank you for the glowing review. Please come back and visit us again soon. Margaret

This is our 3rd year and plan many many more!!!

This my groups 3rd year at this house. It a traditional we love spending a long weekend away from the city of Chicago. 6 years ago, 8 friends decided to get away from the city, through those years we have stayed at 3 different houses, and nothing tops this house. We love the space. Each year we have 14-16 people and we have more then enough space for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you need. We cook 4 meals a weekend. There are 2 refrigerators so you never run out of space to store food. Between the game room, hot tub, fire pit, and TV room equipped with Apple TV, there is never a lack of things to do around the house. The owner is a pleasure to work with and we plan to spend many more years visiting Saugatuck and this home has become our home, we love it and we never even look for another place. Thanks Margaret for all your help and can't wait to get things booked for 2014 and will be counting down the days till our return!!!
Owner's Response: Looking forward to having you back in 2014!!

Amazing place with plenty of room for 20 people!!

We stayed at this amazing home, 6 children and 14 adults. The home is well equipped and spacious. Everyone had their own space to read or whatever, and there were several places where all 14 adults could gather and chat at one time. There were more than enough games to keep the kids entertained - ages 3-14. The short walk to the beach was down a paved road. Eating accommodations were excellent and we could all enjoy breakfast together. There was a farmer's market nearby and we enjoyed plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. We will definitely stay here again in 2015. The property is well maintained and clean. The owner has thought of every amenity possible--we lacked for nothing, including the sweetener, Stevia. Several good restaurants and museums are close by. We all enjoyed a great time!
Owner's Response: I am happy you enjoyed your vacation at our home, we try to make it warm and comfortable for our guests. Hope all the children enjoyed the play set when they weren't swimming in Lake Mich!!

Priceless memories made with an amazing house!

We stayed here last month to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of my dad's successful open heart surgery. There were 20 of us ranging in age from 1-65. This house was perfect for all of us! My 6 year says "this vacation was better than Disney World!" We all loved the secluded location. Even with so many of us in the house, we never felt crowded. There was always a place you could go to find quiet to relax and read or sleep. People ate dinner outside and inside. We fit all 20 of us both in and out for dinners. Out back was always action packed with kids on the swingset, adults chatting, and grilling out! The house is well equipped to cook dinner every night (we tested it out!). Currently my kids are petitioning for us to add a game room to our own house. They were most sad to say goodbye to the fun had in that room! We appreciated how all the bedrooms were located near a bathroom, so no bathroom had to share more than 2 or 3 families. While we did enjoy the short walk to Douglas Beach, we LOVED Oval Beach, which is only a 5 minute drive. We all agreed, we could not have asked for a more perfect house or location for our vacation. With my Type-A personality, I was also very grateful for the owner and her wonderful helpfulness! I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a vacation home with a lifetime of priceless memories to be made!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely compliments. I am happy you enjoyed our house. The weather was perfect for your week at the beach. Come back again.
