Saugatuck / Douglas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Are you looking for a great, affordable get away? Garry's Cottage is the perfect place for your family/friend getaway year round. Located in beautiful Saugatuck, Michigan, with it's sandy dunes and nature's beauty. We are part of Saugatuck's ONLY FAMILY RESORT WITH A POOL AND PRIVATE BEACH! Our beach on Goshorn Lake is just a short 750 ft. stroll. Our outdoor heated pool is even closer than that!

Located less than 2 miles from downtown, you can do what your heart desires. From walking, biking on the new bike path, swimming in the pool or private beach, browsing the shops of Saugatuck or Douglas, golfing, trying a new restaurant, taking time out on a short cruise on the Star of Saugatuck, seeking the thrill of a Dune Ride, sitting at a bon-fire, hiking up Mt. Baldhead, taking in a beautiful sunset on the sandy shores of Oval Beach, tapping into the athlete in you, enjoying a cozy fire in the gas log fireplace to just reading and relaxing. The possibilities are endless!

Much updating has recently been done. We have added a 400 sf family room with a big screen TV. The BEST thing about this room is not only that all 11 of you can be out there comfortably at one time, but that you can put the kids to bed and retreat to this front room without them hearing you.

You will find MANY extras at this cottage. Relax in Garry's 6-person outdoor hot-tub just feet from the back door, ride one of the many bikes in Garry's shed, sit at your own bonfire in the backyard or at the community fire pit on the beach, participate in an outdoor game, or just hang out on the picnic table while waiting for the charcoal in the barbecue grill. If it is raining, search the high speed internet right there in Garry's Cottage, watch TV (Dishnet) or a family DVD, play a board game, read a book, all of which are provided for you.

We purchased Garry's Cottage in the Spring of 2007. We fell in love with the beauty of the sandy dunes, the big shady trees, the private beach on Goshorn Lake and the quiet, out of the way setting that Goshorn Lake Resort provides. We love that we are 'off the beaten path' but close to everything. Choosing Saugatuck for it's school system, we moved here in September 2007, living in the cottage during the school year and renting it out from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The dynamics of our family has changed and so has the place we call 'home'. We are happy to now offer Garry's Cottage Year Round so that you, too, can enjoy the beauty of the four seasons. We looking forward to having you make memories at Goshorn Lake in Garry's Cottage. Brian and Debbie

Debbie purchased this cottage in 2007

Saugatuck is close enough to everything, and yet off the beaten path enough for you to find peace and relaxation that will help you forget the stress of everyday life. Saugatuck has so much to offer, from it's sandy beaches of Lake Michigan to it's quaint shops downtown. From it's art Galleries to it's fine and family dining. There is always something GREAT happening in Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan. There is the Waterfront film festival in June, the Venetian Weekend Fireworks in July, the Taste of Saugatuck in August, the Mt Baldhead Challenge in September, the Fall Fun Fest and Halloween Parade and Festival in October, Tree Lighting Ceremony in November along with Horse-drawn carriage rides and Sensational Saturdays through December, Kicking off the New Year with New Year's Eve Fireworks.

This very family friendly two-story cottage, with it's 400 sf family room, gives you space where all of you can hang out together. The back yard picnic table, fire pit and hot tub are all other ways that you can be together, enjoying one anothers company. There is a shed in the backyard filled with bicycles of different sizes, outdoor games, tennis rackets and hot dog forks. In the house you will find shelves filled with games and puzzles, books for all ages, and a wide selection of family friendly DVDs. Because Garry's Cottage is a part of the Goshorn Lake Resort, you have access to the private beach on Goshorn Lake (the kayaks, the canoes, the rowboats, fishing dock), the outdoor heated pool, shuffle board, beach volleyball, swing set and the list goes on.

Garrys cottage was fantastic. Ive stayed both in Winter and Spring each time was excellent, The upkeep of the cottage and cleanliness is amazing however the best feature is the kindness and consideration provided by the owners.

Owner's Response: Christina,
Thank you! We have tried to include everything that we could think of. You are also a renter to brag about! You picked up so well after yourself that I had a hard time believing you were there. This encourages us as we often will give renters a deal for "last minute" or few people staying.

MOM'S GETAWAY!

Mom's Getaway!
  • 5 of 5
Dear Debbie,
Thanks for a great weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were five moms who needed an escape from our twelve kids, five husbands and hectic lives. We had many laughs and created lots of memories that we'll take with us to get through those tough days.

This was the perfect place to get away from it all. Close to town with quaint shops and good food. We are planning on making this a yearly trip.

Thank you again,

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure to have you stay at our cottage. I appreciated how nice you left the place! Renters like you encourage me to continue the NO CLEANING FEE part of our contract, helping make a get-a-way for families, couples, moms, etc... a little more affordable! See you next year!

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend women's retreat with a group of us! The cottage was great! A wonderful large family room was perfect for playing games, reading books, and watching movies! We loved the hot tub! Close to the highway and close to town! Everything was perfect and we might start making this a regular yearly tradition! The cottage was clean, well maintained, and the owner answered all my questions right away! I would recommend this to all of my family and friends! Thanks again!
