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
