Amazing Azalea! Beautiful Memories made in MI.

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I came with our 3 daughters to celebrate my 60th birthday. We absolutely loved the Azalea cottage. So much so, that my sister and I stayed another night after the girls left. The cottage and the grounds were so pretty. We were very comfortable. We stayed up late playing board games and drinking wine. Most importantly, we grew closer. To spend time without distractions of every day life was wonderful. We will do this every year. This was so special. The gifts were great and thoughtful...but nothing compared to our being together. Seriously, the cottage was so welcoming that it enhanced the whole experience of being together. The weather was great reaching mid 80's every day. I could live every day here!! I highly recommend staying here. Leslie was kind and friendly and helpful with suggestions on where to go while in Douglas or Saugatuck. The cottage was first rate. The beds comfortable, the furnishings absolutely beautiful. The kitchen was fully equipped with high end appliances and lovely dishes and wine glasses. There were several board games and BOOKS. We wanted to stay and read them all!! The views of the garden were out of a story book! Nature surrounded us, and we loved it! The beach was a short walk to the end of the street. My only suggestion to Leslie would be to improve the shower head in the bathrooms. They could be better. The bathrooms were gorgeous, but the shower heads ...could be improved. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The Azalea Cottage - Utterly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
The moment my FOTH (Friends of the Heart for 51 years) walked through the Azalea door into the wide hall, we gasped because of its welcoming aura - beautiful, comfortable furniture, perfect decorating, paintings, little what-nots, like a group of puppies that sat on our kitchen windowsill. The beds were soft and warm, the backyard an absolute secret garden with an eating place tucked into the soft greenery, and a place to just sit and read further on. It was spotless. Leslie was more than accommodating - warm and welcoming. Out the front door, a left turn, and in moments you were standing in front of Lake Michigan. A right, and a public access stairway leads down to the beach, the birds, the solutide and the amazing light of evening sunsets. It's an easy ten minutes to Saugatuck and Douglas with all their shops, eating places and museums. The grocery is five minutes up road. We'd like to recommend the Belvedere Home/Hotel as one of the best places we've ever eaten. We have been doing a trip a year since 1981, so we've seen, dined and been to many accommodations and places. We did take the enjoyable and informative boat trip around the lake and the Kalamazoo River. Would I recommend it to friends and family? Oh, my YES. I want it to be my home!

With best regards,
Isabel (Albuquerque), Patty (Carlsbad, CA), Madeline (Fresno) and Harriet (West Palm Beach).

Beautiful property

  • of 5
We had a wonderful week in Douglas/Saugatuck. The house and gardens we absolutely beautiful, and perfect for our family of 4. The property was clean and well appointed, and the beds were great! The house was well situated to easily get to the Douglas beach and to take walks, and was an easy jump to either town and Oval Beach. We also were close enough to the highway to easily tour the overall area and attractions. We would absolutely return!

Perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
This place had everything you could possibly need. All new appliances and decor and the backyard was absolutely beautiful. The trees and bushes were all blooming the weekend we went which made it even more beautiful. There was yard space to play bocce ball or even set up a bad mitten net if you had one. They even provided beach towels and beach chairs! I will rent this place again and again and have already suggested my friends and family to check out. The renters were easy to reach and helpful with any questions we had. Just a short drive away from downtown Douglas and Saugatuck to shop and eat at and a short walk to the beach!
