About Nick Agnew

We bought our Saugatuck property- 'Shorewood'- because of it's tranquil and wooded locale near Lake Michigan. We built and designed our 'Shorewood' house in such a way that would comfortably accommodate large family gatherings. 'Shorewood' which sits near the beach and towns of Saugatuck and Douglas, represents to us the best that the area has to offer.

Nick Agnew purchased this house in 2006

Why Nick Agnew chose Saugatuck / Douglas

We bought this beautiful Saugatuck property because of it's perfect combination of tranquility when trying to get away from the stresses of everyday life, while still being able to be active in both athletics and cultural activities. Saugatuck has a very urbane charm to it, without the noise and the crowds of a major metro area. Our property is located in the most tranquil spot, near the sugar sand Lake Michigan shoreline. We built a house that we felt that not only our family could enjoy year round, but also, would be an ideal space for extended family or other large families or groups who could gather comfortably. Our house is in a private enclave, that has the Lake in the front end, and the peaceful woods in the back. Saugatuck constantly surprises us with it's diversity; ranging from the magnificent sunsets over Lake Michigan (right out our front door!), to the sugar sand beaches; to the Art Barn where our children, on a rainy day, can get make their own artwork...and it does not end there!

What makes this house unique

The beach! The sugar sand that squeaks when you walk on it. The dunes at the beach. The amazingly clean and beautiful, warm, Lake Michigan water during the summer. The sunsets! The summer! The Fall, when the leaves change and you can go apple picking! The endless running on beach/roads and/or the endless biking on roads...right out the front door. The safety and quiet of living on a private road in a private enclave with no traffic or noise. The short bike or drive to downtown Saugatuck or Douglas for food, culture, shopping, antiquing, or just strolling. The locale of house with fire pit, hot tub (and outdoor shower), and wildlife surrounding property. The airy and open layout, that our 4000 square foot home offers families and groups on trips.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay at the Saugatuck Beach Home. The house was

amazing* bright, spacious, and very comfortable with all the amenities.

Very clean home and well maintained property. The great room was large enough to accommodate our group for meals and conversation. And the kids loved the rec room in the lower level where they played table tennis and lounged on the sectional for movies. We loved how private and tranquil it was in the house and on the grounds. The beach went on for miles and the sand was the best. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi and had excellent campfires out back after long days on the beach. We definitely will be back!

Wedding

  • 4 of 5
Our daughter got married in Saugatuck and needed a home big enough, for our family. There were 12 of us, ranging in age, from 90 to 18 months. The house worked great with 3 bedrooms on the ground floor, and bedroom and bath in the basement. The kids loved the very short walk to the lake and beach.

Perfect for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
We've come for two straight years and cannot wait to return!

The house has all the comforts of home and lots of space for the 7 of us. The kitchen is outfitted nicely for meals in. And the location could not be better for lakeside walks, shopping and eating in Saugatuck/Douglas. It's a gem and easy to get to from Chicago.

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5
Our family consists of 8 adults and 7 children- 9,6,5,4,2,1 and 4 months! Needless to say it was a busy week.... However, the home worked great. We loved walking to the beach every day and being close enough to run home if necessary. Also, walked to Lake Michigan to see the sunsets every night. In addition many nights we used the hot tub, and cooked s'mores over the fire pit while 2 of our sons played their guitars and everyone sang camp songs! Most nights we ate at the house grilling on the gas grill however, there were some great restaurants nearby- Everyday People Cafe in Douglas was a favorite. Lots of boutiques shops in Saugatuck and there was even an art fair while we were there. We ranged from 4 months to 67 years and all had a good time. I would definitely recommend this home.

4th Annual Michigan Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to this area for 4 years now; my father, and my 4 other siblings, and their respective families. his was our second year staying at this beautiful home. It is very spacious, well equipped and in the perfect location. We love the convenience to Saugatuck and Douglas, by car or bike. But our favorite tradition is walking down the street to view the beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan, then back to the house for a fire in the fire pit. The steps to the beach were recently replaced, and the new ones made it so easy going up and down, for our afternoons floating in rafts on Lake Michigan.
I would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking for a spacious, well maintained rental that is in the perfect location for all kinds of activities. Working with the owner/property manager has been great. They have been very prompt in helping out with any questions during our stay.
Our family is comprised of all adults, but this property would also meet the needs of families with small children.

Women's weekend retreat

Women's weekend retreat
  • 5 of 5
What an amazing house to celebrate the coming together of girlfriends for a weekend retreat. There was 14 of us to share this house and we loved it, comfortable and space to spread out. We enjoyed being close to the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets and 5 mins from town to drive in and shop the day away. We have been renting houses all over Michigan and Canada for the past 20 years and decided the "Shorewood" home number 1. Rent this home and you will not be disappointed!!
