We had a relaxing stay at this farmhouse, which is also the owner’s home. It was nice to have wireless internet so we could plan our stay and visits to the surrounding areas; we went to Holland for a day and South Haven for a day. We also went to the winery nearby. We didn’t go swimming, but it looked like a nice lake and the public access was within walking distance. Bed was full size, so a little small for 2 people. I didn’t see a microwave, so I ended up tossing out restaurant leftovers rather than trying to reheat on the stove. The outdoor wooden swing and wooden table could use a power washing and some stain or paint. We enjoyed sitting outside in the evening on the metal outdoor chairs by the fire pit. Overall, this kind of reminded me of a cabin at summer camp or staying at someone's Grandma's home - quaint & relaxed without a ton of amenities, but the point isn't to spend lots of time indoors.
EL was a great host and we really enjoyed our stay here. It is very close to Fennville attractions such as the winery and Crane's orchard and it is just across the road from the lake. It is also a very short drive to downtown Saugatuck and Oval beach if you want to check out a more touristy area. The house is cute and has a lot of charm. It lacks some modern amenities but we found it nice to unplug for a few days and just relax.
