We are married with three kids, and my kids LOVE to visit Saugatuck.

My parents built this home and lived happily here for 22 years and have now moved. Saugatuck has been a special place for us and our kids and family for the past 22 years of great memories!

We can enjoy all seasons in Saugatuck, with the kids and our extended family. There is always something to do for all!

PERFECT FOR LONG WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful and spacious accommodations in a great location. Easy walking distance to Saugatuck shops and the chain ferry. Cute neighborhood to jog/walk around each morning or evening.

The house itself is quite large, with lots of spaces for gathering the whole group together. We loved the large screened-in porch off the back of the house, which has seating for 7-8 and is adjacent to the patio on which we could grill. Has all the comforts of home and more: clean bathrooms, lots of beach towels, a large living room, and enough bedrooms and other living spaces that our group could enjoy spending several days together without feeling like we couldn't get away from each other, too.

Super-nice owner!

GREAT HOUSE FOR LARGE GROUPS!

  • 5 of 5
4 families (including 6 children and 8 adults) stayed in this home for an extended weekend. Location is fantastic and it's an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants in town. There was plenty of space for everyone and the teenage boys loved the lower level bunk room and rec room area. Kitchen was perfectly stocked, we all enjoyed sitting out in the screened in porch and the little kids loved running around in the backyard. I would highly recommend this house to a large group! Owner was great to work with.

BOOK GROUP RTREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our group thoroughly enjoyed this getaway to Saugatuck! We were able to relax and discuss our monthly book in the great room, play cards and hang out in the kitchen/dining area, play pool and watch movies downstairs. Saturday morning we all walked to have coffee downtown, shopped, planned a Saturday night meal and had a relaxing weekend. The home was large enough to provide privacy and still connect as a group.
Highly recommend!!!

A VERY NICE VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
The house was big enough to accommodate a group of five small families. There's even a den that can serve as an additional room. The owner was very easy to talk to. She paid a lot of attention to details and made sure that we have everything that we will ever need. From toilet papers to kitchen utensils to scissors and some necessary stuff that vacationers normally forget about. The house definitely exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and well-maintained, but the thing we love the most is its close proximity to downtown Saugatuck with its quaint shops and small town charm. The property was also just a few minutes drive away from the Saugatuck Dune Rides, which no one should ever miss as this was the highlight of our holiday. If we can suggest anything that needs improvement, that would the temperature in the basement room. Despite our several attempts to adjust the settings, the room is just too cold for a comfortable sleep. During summer, I doubt this would be an issue anyway. Apart from this, we really enjoyed our stay! For a relaxing and worry-free vacation, I truly recommend this house.

A MICHIGAN DREAM

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been happier with the week we spent at this house! We quickly realized that the pictures posted did not due the house justice.. it was very roomy, with enough space for everyone to spread out and relax. We were excited the house had a great kitchen to cook a big meal for everybody, and a great space to enjoy the meal together. The living room / basement / patio area all provided great rooms to easily relax in. We went to the downtown Saugatuck area everyday, and were able to discover new things each time! The people were incredibly friendly and welcoming in every store / restaurant / cafe we went to. We loved every minute and couldn't have asked for a better experience.

AMAZING HOME IN AN INCREDIBLE TOWN!

  • 5 of 5
Went up with 3 families (16 people) and there was plenty of room for everyone! House is homey and spacious. Great sunroom for relaxing, open indoor floor plan for large group to gather. Home is just blocks from town so adults could walk down for breakfast while the kids slept. Town is close and safe enough that the kids could walk down by themselves to get ice cream and window shop. We rented scooters and electric bikes in town. Fun for kids and adults!

House is extremely well maintained and obviously well-loved. We had a great time. Planning to make the trip to Saugatuck every year. Hoping we can rent the same house every time!
