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!

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 accomodate 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

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!

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.

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!!

Great for a holiday getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We chose the Saugatuck Beach Home for our annual trip with 6 couples/families over the New Year's Eve holiday. We've stayed in other large homes in previous years and found this one to fit all our needs and be a wonderful place to ring in the new year. The hot tub was great in the cold and snowy weather and the lake was beautiful with the ice. The house was warm and had everything we needed, including room for the small kids to play in the basement. It's clearly a newer home and was in good shape. We also enjoyed the wood-burning fireplace. We'd stay here again and recommend it to others!

Great Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property with 5 couples. The house comfortably fit everyone (each couple had their own room & we had a room to spare). The pool table & ping pong in the basement were an added plus in our after-dinner entertainment. The house is perfectly located in a private, quiet setting very close to the beach. The house is clean and very well-kept - and the owner is very helpful. Overall - a great property.

GREAT GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a great weekend at the Sagatuck Beach House. We are a group of 10 woman who gathered to celebrate our 20 years together as a book club and friends. The house could not have been more perfect for our group. The six bedrooms on the three levels gave us a lot privacy. The large main room was warm and cozy with a huge sectional that allowed us all to lounge and relax. We moved the "kid's table" to enlarge the dining room table so we could sit together for the yummy meals we prepared. Happy hour was on the back deck and dessert was on the front screened in porch! The short walk to Lake Michigan allowed for spontaneous jaunts to the beach. We rented kayaks on Pidgen River through the supplier Kayak Kayak and had a great time. We hope to make this an annual trip and return to the house!!
