Stay at Lily Cottage week of Oct 5th

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was so pretty and comfortable. We so enjoyed the gardens and ease of the location to get around to different towns in Michigan. Everything was very convenient. The property is well maintained and clean. Our only disappointment was that we never got use the fireplace as it wasn't functioning at the time. Our hosts were very gracious and helpful. We would definitely do it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I'm so sorry the fireplace was not working, I know it would have been quite cozy on a Fall evening.

A fine time

This property is well appointed, well outfitted, and well maintained. A perfect home to come back to after a day of exploring the beach and towns,

A perfect get-away location.

The best vacation home ever.

  • 5 of 5
From arriving, Leslie greeted my family and I with welcoming arms, but that wasn't all. The cottage was beautifully appointed -- a dream of a home. The perfect vacation space for us. The cottage looked as though it was lifted directly from a fancy home decor magazine and it never disappointed us. Kitchen and its environs, enough to cook a gourmet meal or Thanksgiving dinner; the bathrooms two just beautiful and the bedrooms -- one the best sleeps I have had in a long time.

Part of our trip was to take hikes in and around Douglas, but I felt so warm and comfortable in the cottage most of my time was spent indoors, snugged with a book and enjoying the fall foliage outside the dining room.

I cannot say enough about the cottage.

BEYOUND EXPECTATIONS, WOW!

  • 5 of 5
We are formerly from Grand Rapids and chose The Gardens because it was a short drive to be with old friends and great golfing. Our friends were amazed that we had found such a warm, beautiful place, so elegantly furnished with original artwork, designer touches We arrived at The Gardens and were pleasantly surprised. It was more than we expected. throughout and a kitchen well stocked for cooking.

The Lily felt like home after the first day. We stayed for the month of September and hated to leave, it was so comfortable. Very well represented in the ad, immaculate, beautifully decorated, everything we needed, and Leslie was very helpful with getting us settled in. The gardens were very relaxing, I love gardening and could not get enough of the historic gardens with the sheltered private areas for enjoying friends and breakfast with just the two of us.

We walked to the beach for the sunsets which were amazing. We visited Oval Beach a must for all visiting the area, Mt. Baldhead and the little town of Douglas. We ate at Everyday People and Wild Dog Café and loved the charm of both of eateries. We went to the Holland Farmers Market every Saturday morning and left with bags filled with great eats from local farmers. We went to Fennville for Crane’s cider, pies and pumpkins (picked by us).

We have already booked The Gardens for next year, we consider this “home away from home”.

Wonderful Vacation on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5
The Lily cottage was very well represented in the ad. It was immaculate,beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and a short walk to Douglas Beach. It was also a short (less than 2 miles) bike ride to Saugatuck. We ate breakfast on the patio overlooking the garden every morning-very private.
Leslie was a great resource for local attractions and history of the cottage.
We would definitely recommend this property and would love to return.

The Gardens - Lily in Douglas

  • of 5
Arriving from LA and finding my "cottage" (The Lily) was a delight. The place is elegantly furnished with original artwork and designer touches throughout the place. It is nestled in historic gardens with sheltered areas to enjoy the wooded outdoors. The beach and dunes are a short stroll along away. The thoughtful touches Leslie has supplied were greatly appreciated (i.e. wine glasses, coffee maker filters, shower soaps, laundry detergent, dish washing soaps, dish towels, WiFi, Kleenex) and made the place feel like home as soon as you arrived. This is a place I will definitely want to return too and so do the guests I had while I was there in August.
