The house is sited on the dune adjacent to Mt. Baldhead Park and the Saugatuck Museum. Built in the 1890's it has been fully modernized and can be enjoyed year round. The house has three levels, all with a view of the Kalamazoo River. Location on west side of the river allows an easy walk to the chain ferry or a stroll along Park Street north to the Oxbow Art Institute Summer School. Walk or drive to the beach (about 0.6 mile). Beach trails through the woods are also available.

The first level of the house contains the main bedroom, a family room, a full bathroom, and the utility room with washer/dryer. You access the second level by a winding staircase. The second level contains a long indoor porch with pine dining table and windows with a northern view. The porch has sliding glass doors to the outdoor screened porch. From the indoor porch you enter the living room with river views to the east and south. This level also has a bathroom (with shower) and a full kitchen - also with a door to the outdoor screen porch. Up the stairs you will find the third level which is a loft sleeping area with beds of differing sizes. The loft has eastern views of the river and western views of the woods. The house is decorated in a Saugatuck cottage style with many antiques. Floors are wood - painted in the first and third level - with wide plank hard pine in the second level. Three ceiling fans in the interior of the house, with a fourth in the screen porch. The screen porch contains wicker furniture and has views of the woods. As it is located on the west side away from the river, a quiet and peaceful afternoon can be spent reading. PLEASE NOTE: as the house is located on a dune with elevated views of Saugatuck and the Kalamazoo River - there are approximately 20 brick steps to reach the first entrance to level one from the parking area. Inside the house a spiral staircase leads to level two and level three is reached by a 14 step stairway. Please consider this before renting, or e-mail any questions.

We purchased the house in 1996 after years of renting in the area. When not in Saugatuck we reside in Downers Grove, Illinois.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1996

We believe Saugatuck is the finest resort community with the best beach and other amenities on the Great Lakes. We rented prior to buying - and the 15 years since our purchase have confirmed our opinion.

Beach, golf, restaurants, kayaking, excitement of being close to river and the constant parade of boats, or - just peace and quite inside the house or enjoying the screen porch.
