Guestbook comments from the owner
This was a great cabin. It was very clean! The beach was easy access and only 1 block away. The screened in porch was a great place to enjoy meals with our family. We saw deer in the back yard. We were only 3 hours from home but everything was so peaceful it seemed liked we were a million miles away - Everything was "as promised" by the owner and she was very accomodating to some last minute changes. We would be sure to recommend this cabin to friends.

EVEN NICER THAN THE PICTURES CAN SHOW

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week at this cottage in July of 2011. When we drove up, we saw a deer behind the cottage. As we entered, the brightly painted door and flower pots were a cozy touch. Everything was extremely clean, including behind couches, in the kitchen, and in the bathroom (not that we checked behind the couches, but we couldn't help but notice). The cottage was decorated tastefully and minimally with seaside art. There were high quality mattress protectors, sheets, and quilts on the beds and lots of extra bedding if we needed it. The beds were very comfortable, including the two twins in the room where our child slept. The kitchen was well stocked with a microwave, utensils, pots and pans, a toaster, a coffee pot, coffee filters, trash bags, salt, pepper, etc. The screened-in porch was a lovely spot for reading, eating, or playing games and had a couple of tables. Our son used one of the tables to sort and organize his seashells and other treasures. The neighborhood could not be more quiet, and the tall pines around the cottage are indicative of the entire area's beautiful trees. It's a great area for taking walks or riding bikes. Don't forget to look for the black squirrels! The Douglas beach was a short walk away (about two blocks). It was small, quiet, and beautiful. Both Saugatuck and Douglas were great little towns. There were no fast food joints (except for a Burger King by the highway) or big box stores, which is what we liked about it. There was a decent little grocery store just a mile or so from the cottage where we could get anything we needed. There were lots of wonderful art galleries and restaurants, great dining by the water, and many fun activities (dune ride, duck boat ride, tour of the S.S. Keewatin, canoeing, berry picking). Oval Beach is a brief drive from the cottage and we think it is the prettiest beach in Michigan. It is surrounded by dunes and was never crowded during the week. We even went for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon. Although it was busy, we easily found our own spot on the beach that wasn't too close to anyone else. Gloria was a wonderful host. She made sure we were well taken care of and was easy to reach (call her on the phone rather than send an e-mail). We had a fabulous time with lots of family bonding and something everyone (grownups and child). We couldn't recommend this place or its owner more highly! Thanks, Gloria, for memories we will treasure forever. We're sure we'll be back!

WONDERFUL LITTLE CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed a week in this cabin in August 2010. We had one of the hottest weeks of the summer to contend with, but we were comfortable and happy (well, maybe not thrilled with the mosquitos). The cabin was absolutely spotless when we arrived, and very well equipped. We did have to buy ice cube trays and a few VHS movies, since the cabin had only a video player—no DVD player. And nobody rents out VHS movies anymore! But that was our only quibble. Gloria was there to greet us when we arrived, and she stayed to show us around the house. She had prepared a very thorough sheet of information about everything we could possibly need to know, but she was still very patient with my sometimes repetitive questions.

The cabin is smaller than it appears in the pictures, but that was really no problem. If the weather had been cooler, we would have spent more time out on the wonderful screened-in porch. As it was, we spent our days in a whirl of dune buggies, kayaks, jet skis, bathing suits, and ice cream!

We loved our vacation and will definitely be back!

COZY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We rented here in July 2009 with our three kids ages 9-3. With the futon, two twin beds and queen we were all comfortable. The cabin is rustic in a very charming way. The neighborhood is quiet with lots of families on bikes and walking to the beach. There is an air conditioner but the cabin is so shaded and cool we kept the windows open to catch a breeze and hear the birds. We walked to the beach everyday and think we will bring a small rolling cart next time for the beach chairs. Even a short trip with those can be a burden! And it is a short trip to Douglas beach which is small but great for kids. It never seemed crowded and I never lost sight of the kids. Very relaxing for a mom of three. We went to the farmers market,climbed Mt. Baldy,played in the dunes at Oval beach (kid fave) and ate our weight in ice cream in downtown Saugatuck. The kids keep talking about going back to the cabin and seeing more sunsets. We reassure them that we will definitely be back next year. From the prompt replies to my initial inquiries, to the forgotten shoe that was sent after we got home and everything in between we were well taken care of.
