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

  • 5 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.

Hidden Treasure of Douglas

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Lily many times, and each time we open the door of this beautifully decorated cottage, it never looses its charm! Upscale furnishings, lush bedding and linens, along with a well stocked kitchen are all bonuses. The adjacent garden in the back of the cottage is beautiful and provides a quiet and serene backdrop to this charming cottage. It is a wonderful place to "re-charge" your batteries. Its location is within walking to distance to Douglas Beach with its magnificent sunsets; and, just a short drive to the towns of Douglas and Saugatuck. The owner is very accommodating, and was easily accessible during our stay which was most appreciated. We are looking forward to our next stay!

Touch of Paradise!

Tranquil and deeply restorative setting. Exquisitely maintained property with everything and then some for your perfect Michigan stay. Close to Lake Michigan, hiking in the Saugatuck Dunes, and art galleries. Definitely recommend this cottage. Already planning for our repeat stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We like to think we have one of the best locations in West Michigan. Close to the lake and close to "civilization". We'll look forward to your return visit.

Awesome vacation spot in Saugatuck!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Lily. It was clean and beautifully decorated just as pictured. Private patio with beautiful gardens was great for our morning coffee. The area is nice for bike rides, also. Leslie (owner) was great to work with and we really have no complaints. We would love to come back and stay in the 3 bedroom next year.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you and your family visit and you were very helpful and gracious guests.
Last year returning guests started making reservations in November for this summer. So, if you have a week in mind, book early!
Thank you,
Leslie
