'WHITE PINES' A LUXURY HOME W/ CUSTOM POOL IN CHARMING DOWNTOWN DOUGLAS

Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, 2 Half Baths + Outdoor Shower, Sleeps 12

Nestled at the end of a private street in a wooded surrounding, but only 2 blocks from downtown Douglas is the setting for this perfect vacation getaway. The home was custom built to resemble the 4-Square style homes of the early 1900's and was constructed with quality materials and features custom millwork and 9 foot ceilings throughout. The home has an open floor plan ideal which is ideal for entertaining. An in-ground pool, gourmet kitchen, screened-in porch, and 2 living spaces provide ample space for family or friends to gather together.

Sleeping Accommodations: The home features 5 bedrooms. There are three bedrooms on the second floor including a large master bedroom suite with soaking tub and walk-in shower. The other two bedrooms are nicely appointed with queen beds and share a full bath with tub/shower. The third floor is a huge open bedroom with it's own 1/2 bath. This room has 4 twin beds each situated in their own nook. The fifth bedroom is very large and is located in the lower level of the home. It's en suite with it's own bathroom complete with walk-in shower and double vanity.

Wonderfully Furnished: The walnut-stained hardwood floors throughout (although the bedrooms have carpet) against the backdrop of the all white walls, make for a cool cottage feel. The house is furnished in an eclectic mix of modern furnishings and cool vintage pieces coupled with fun artwork. The kitchen features Kitchen-Aid Chef Series stainless steel appliances with gas cooks range, convection oven & warming drawer, granite countertops, large island and custom painted cabinetry welcome any cook. A walk-thru butler's pantry has butcher-block countertops and stainless bar sink. The custom built farm table seats 10-12 for dinner with room for another 4 at the island. The living room has 2 large modern slip-covered sofas plus 2 custom upholstered chairs and is a wonderful place to congregate. The screened-in porch features an outdoor dining table that seats 8+ as well as a lounging area - perfect for reading a book, checking emails, or watching the activities in the pool. The lower level media room has an unbelievably comfy sectional to hang out in & watch movies or the big game.

Backyard Oasis: The newly built custom swimming pool (heated of course) is the center piece of the backyard. This 30 foot by 13 foot 'plunge' pool ranges in depth from 4-4.5' deep. Integrated stairs with custom 5' x 7' tanning ledge (covered in 3 inches of water) make for a great place to hang-out. A large custom concrete patio surrounds the pool area and is the perfect place to lounge in the sun. In addition, there's a great custom patio area steps from the pool with wonderful seating area perfect for cocktails and extended conversations. For the sports-minded guests, there's also a cool outdoor ping pong table perfect for a little one-on-one or doubles competition. The fun outdoor shower and bbq complete the backyard oasis.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This home is great! It is gorgeous, inside and out. It is very clean and well kept with plenty of storage for luggage and belongings. Plenty of beds, including a kids room on the 3rd level.The location is great, very close to downtown Saugatuck where there are many fun restaurants and shops. There is a grocery store in walking distance which is great. I would definitely recommend the White Pines to anyone.

LUXURY RETREAT WITHOUT COMPROMISE

  • 5 of 5
Discovering the 'White Pines' Home down the private drive was like opening a wonderful gift on Christmas morning. The exterior is pleasing to the eye with it's historical design and well appointed landscaping. When we entered the front door, we felt the light, bright decor sweep us away with a feeling of immaculate design, clean-lined, yet comfortable. Each room has it's own unique character with a uniting thread of adequate space and attention to detail. The beds were comfortable with the right amount of bedding and cushioning. The hub of the house, the kitchen, has the supplies to make anything from muffins to a roast and serve it from casual to sit down.

We had a delightful time being so close to all the fun and amenities of this charming town and we especially enjoyed just being on a weekend vacation in the home itself.

The home is equipped with all the necessities to comfortably enjoy your vacation.

EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a winter weekend with a group of eight. Having rented several houses before, there is always that nervous moment when you walk in the door and see what the place really looks like - especially if you're the one who booked it for the group. From the moment we walked into White Pines, we knew we had found the perfect place for our weekend getaway.

We are very particular about our rentals, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. These were immaculate. We have never rented a property that made us want to make an offer to buy it 'as is' - until White Pines. We hope to make our trip an annual one. If you're planning to stay in the area, there's no reason to look any further than this place.

YOU WILL NOT WANT TO LEAVE THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Holy Smokes, this house is fantastic! From the moment I walked in, I was in LOVE! We rang in the New Year here and truly didn't want to leave. I can't even imagine how great this house is in the Summer when the pool is open. The kitchen had everything we needed right down to cheese cloth, gravy boat and trussing twine! Come On!? What other rental has an asparagus steamer and a pastry docker? The bathrooms are super clean, just like the rest of the house. The house is so solid and well proportioned and the decor is straight out of Architectural Digest. We took photos of every bedroom and artful design touch. I loved the kitchen so much that I had to be pulled downstairs for the movie. Then I just wanted to nap there after the movie and look through the coffee table books. It is amazing how fast a person can adjust to pure luxury. I cannot recommend this house enough. It is fantastic! You will LOVE IT! We sure did. Steve, if you ever want to sell it, please let us know first. Cheers!

ALL THAT WAS PROMISED AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
You walk into this carefully appointed home and instantly relax! The place is an oasis in the true sense. In every room you are surrounded by luxury and style but in a completely comfortable easiness.
The kitchen is stocked with more quality drinkware and kitchenware than you could ever use.
You feel like you are visiting a very close friend who has loaned you his home.

FABULOUS GIRLS' GETAWAY

Fabulous Girls' Getaway
  • 5 of 5
Our Mahjong group of seven takes a trip every summer. White Pines far exceeded our expectations. The beautiful property was spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The pool and patio areas were spectacular.
The owner was available and attentive when we had a power issue due to an outage. Problems were quickly resolved.
White Pines is walking distance to neighborhood shops, restaurants and a full service grocery store.
We would recommend this property to anyone and everyone. Hope to return next summer !

Map

Car: not necessary

This wonderful home is tucked away on a private street in downtown Douglas, MI and is only 2 blocks from the center of this charming town. One can easily walk to the many unique shops, galleries, restaurants, grocery store and even the cool bowling alley just down the street - In fact, you don't even need for car!. There are two amazing public beaches in town which are only a short drive away. The Douglas beach is exactly one mile due west and the famous Saugatuck/Oval beach is a short 1.5 mile drive. If you're on that vacation mode and not up for driving there, the Saugatuck/Douglas Inter Urban bus will take you to the beach for a buck!
