We choose this location because not only is it close to restaurants, entertainment, shopping and beaches, this property offers a getaway for our guests to enjoy right in the back yard.

This property is only 2 blocks from downtown boardwalk. Enjoy the views of boat entering and leaving the harbor while enjoying a nice dinner or a glass of you favorite beverage. At sunset watch the spectacular views from the beach!

This property is in the center of everything you could ever want to do on a vacation. From shopping to surfing there are no limits. Hurry and reserve your vacation before it books up!

What makes this estate unique

Our property offers the ability to relax and enjoy nature while being a short walk away from shopping and restaurants. This house is unique as it has been completely remodeled. As many other properties have a master bedroom we offer a carriage house to offer you the most romantic and relaxing vacation. To make your stay even more special we have additional packaging, such as our Romantic Getaway, Honeymoon, Family Friendly, and many more. Please contact us for further details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for renting us your home -- we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. During our stay we got to see your martagon lilies bloom and draw swantail butterflies, enjoyed the fragrance of the white pines after a rain, the kids had a lawn to run around, and my mother enjoyed the friendly passers-by saying hello as she enjoyed her book on the front porch. I loved the French doors in the kitchen opening out onto the deck--it brought the out-of-doors right into the kitchen. We actually packed lunches and had breakfasts and four dinners in the house. We never got around to going out for breakfast, which I regret. I certainly appreciated your appliances, including the shallow and wide fridge.



We spent time at Oval beach and Saugatuck Dunes beach and took the sunset paddlewheeleer with my mom.



I really wish we could have stayed longer.

First Class, Exceeded My Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I recently toured this property for interest in hosting corporate events and learned at the time, to my amazement, that this spectacular property is available for vacation rental. It is definitely not a typical “rental” property. It is first class all the way both inside and out. What a great place to take my family for a week long stay and get lost in the nostalgia and feel of “small town USA” – the home and the surroundings feel more like the east coast of the USA instead of the mid west America. The home is in the heart of downtown Saugatuck which is one of the most charming towns in Michigan, all privately owned stores and restaurants (within one block of this exquisite home.) It is truly a step back in time, no corporate America.

Although I have not yet held an event (or vacationed here) the tour was amazing and the property will be perfect for private board meetings, product unveilings, private receptions/ dinners and lively strolling soirees on the beautiful spacious grounds. The large veranda style front porch is charming for guests to socialize over a glass of wine or cup of coffee and the quiet serenity of a large private back yard with private back deck right off the Gourmet Viking Kitchen will be great for “grill outs”.

I highly recommend this property for anyone that wants a first class vacation or private event. The tour of this property exceeded my expectations. I definitely hope I have the opportunity to go back.

A slice of small town living.

  • 5 of 5

Our family: 8 adults, 2 teens and a 2y/o stayed for a week at this Saugatuck vacation home. The home is artistically decorated with nice sized gathering rooms and bedrooms. The yard is beautiful and well maintained. The location could not be any better, a very short walk to the downtown area, less than 10 minutes to the beautiful Oval Beach or to The Ravines golf course. There is plenty to do in and around Saugatuck. Some of our favorite times were sitting on the great front porch sipping coffee (a.m.) or enjoying a glass of wine (p.m.) and watching the people pass by!

Owner's Response: We are pleased you were able to take advantage of so many of the wonderful pleasures Saugatuck (and Douglas) have to offer. Also pleased that you enjoyed ideal location of our home in Saugatuck, one short block away from downtown shopping and waterfront boardwalk. It allows so much freedom of all the different age groups of the guests...some guests may choose to relax on the veranda style front porch while other may choose to browse art galleries or take an enjoyable walk on the waterfront boardwalk...all within 5 minutes of one another. You were enjoyable guests and would love to have you and your family back again. Our Best...

Perfect House for Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything! We were SO happy to find that this house had a yard to enjoy along with a large deck to grill out on. With a short walk we were right in down town and close to the beach and water! What an amazing property. I would recomend this to everyone!

SPECTACULAR HOME IN THE HEART OF SAUGATUCK !

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this vacation home! I’m glad I paid a little extra to have the best possible vacation available!

Enchanting home and town - One of my most memorable and enchanting vacations! This home has it all…One block to live theatre, live music, restaurants, night life, shopping, art galleries - as well as – two blocks to the waterfront, boardwalk and boating. In the summer you can sit at one of the many restaurants on the waterfront and enjoy outdoor music while having lunch or a cocktail.

The home itself is beautiful, bright and spacious with the luxury of a private residence. Quiet, private, enchanting grounds – I felt like I was staying at an art gallery with the beautiful life size bronze sculptures throughout the grounds. The back yard has large private deck with large out door grill off the French doors of kitchen for grilling at home. The front yard has a sunny front porch to sit and have coffee while watching all the people walk by as they head in to town. The property is fenced with a gorgeous artistic wrought iron fence which adds to the privacy of the home.

An added plus is I did not have to worry about “drinking and driving.” I was able to share a bottle of wine with my wife and not worry about having to drive home. If you have a car there are great daily excursions to vineyards, beautiful beaches and other near by towns.

Exquisite home, absolutely charming and in the heart of all the activity…I highly recommend!
