CHARMING COTTAGE--WALK TO DOUGLAS BEACH!

Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Charming single-family home vacation rental on cul-de-sac in Douglas, located at 3060 Park Drive, south off Center Street. With a short walk to the Douglas Public Beach on Lake Michigan, you will not be disappointed when you arrive to relax in this lovely home.

You will feel right at home from the moment you walk in - whether it be from your special welcome gift to the many bathroom and toiletry amenities provided so you can relax and enjoy your stay.

With 1300 square feet of living space you definitely will not feel cramped. The Pottery Barn furnishings complemented by personally chosen antiques abound throughout this professionally decorated home. See why this property is fully booked every Summer season!

Main Living Area: The Living Room area opens onto a screened porch that runs the length of the home. Enjoy relaxing on the porch, with its wicker love seat, chairs, tables and reading lamp. Abounding with light from the 3 sets of French Doors, the front living area feels open and peaceful, bringing the outdoors inside (don't be surprised if you see a family of deer outside the front porch).

Second Floor Living Area: On the 2nd level, there are 2 additional bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The second bedroom has 1 queen bed with plenty of closet space. The third bedroom, nick-named the 'Cowboy Room' contains 2 twin beds; a full-size baby crib is available upon request. Both bedrooms are bright and charming. The 2nd floor full bath is large and spacious.

Area Info: You'll love the location of this home, within walking distance of Lake Shore Drive where you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and the lovely Douglas public beach. It's only a short drive or an easy bike ride (using a provided mountain bike) to downtown Douglas or Saugatuck for dining, shopping, or boating. Douglas, Michigan is the proud recipient of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Distinctive Destination Award. Douglas is approximately 10 miles south of Holland, Michigan.

Guestbook comments from the owner
“We were pleased to find how well this cottage fit our needs. It's homey, functional, and well equipped, and we love the neighborhood. We were impressed with the lovely landscaping, and having a garage was very handy for us. We appreciate the chance to stay here, and we hope to do so again!”

Some close friends of mine also own second homes in the Douglas and Saugatuck communities. With its beautiful beaches, terrific restaurants, and nearby entertainment, Douglas and Saugatuck is worlds away from Chicago!

EXCELLENT CLASSY AND COZY COMFORT WITH EASY ACCESS TO EVERY THING YOU WOULD WANT!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage and its location was much more than what even the photos showed. It was perfect in every way and everything seemed new. Without a doubt this will be where we will stay when returning to the area. The owner was absolutely the best in regards to the entire renting process with very detailed information on use of the cottage so you had no worries about anything! We highly recommend the Hungry Village Tour with David Green and dining at the Salt of the Earth restaurant!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing cottage. We loved everything about this place. One block from Lake Michigan. We seen a number of deer having a snack. The beds are so comfortable. Everything we needed was at the cottage. The bikes are nice, even found tool for tightening handle bars. We will return to this little cottage. LOVE, LOVE!!!!!! So close to lots of things two great restaurants Big Dogs, and Every Day. Very close to Saugatuck. Very Clean and the decor is lovely with that cottage feel. We loved opening the screened in porch doors and in the morning sitting on the porch reading.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
This house is clean, attractive, comfortable and stocked with everything you need for a fun vacation stay. We had three generations and all thought the house met their needs. We loved being able to walk to the lakeshore to play and to see the sunsets every night.

COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very nice, clean and well decorated . The cabinets and refrigerator had many things in them that other cottages don't have but maybe a few too many things left from others . We were a family of 4 and had difficulty putting groceries in the cabinets and refrig for the week . The porch furniture cushions did not fit the furniture well made it difficult to sit there and I wanted to sit there . It was in a great quite location but near everywhere you need and want to be .

COTTAGE REVIEW

  • 4 of 5
I liked that it had some things like condiments and such but the cabinets and refrigerator did have a lot of things we were not going use and made it difficult to put food for a family in it no room in the refrig. The furniture was not very comfortable in the living room or the porch , the cushions did not fit on the porch furniture , slipped off all the time. It was beautiful and well decorated and clean , fit our family very well. location was quite and easy to get to anywhere. all in all it was really good.

Owner's Response: We do take pride in ensuring the kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, storage containers, glassware, serving ware and anything else that one would need to cook while on vacation; therefore the kitchen cabinets are fully stocked with these items. We do also provide many things such as condiments, spices, paper products, olive oil, coffee, sugar, etc. which also do take up room in the kitchen. The fridge is also kept stock of commonly used condiments so people do not have to purchase those as well. Many renters have been very thankful that the cottage is fully stocked and that they do not need to purchase many cooking things at all. We are sorry that you felt there was not room for you things. As always, we ask renters to note any issues upon check in so we can correct, as we would have been happy to have someone make more room for your items or have you throw out items you did not want. Unfortunately, we did not hear about this until after. A replacement porch cushion for the loveseat has been ordered for the one that was noted as not fitting. Thank you for your feedback and your stay!

ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME...

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a very relaxing weekend in this cozy cottage. The house was clean, beautifully decorated, and the beds were comfortable. The owner was very responsive. The location was private and quiet. It was too chilly to spend much time on the beach, but we really enjoyed our hike to Mt. Baldhead. Would definitely stay here again!
