BEAUTIFUL NEW BUILD, WALK TO LAKE MICHIGAN

Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

Nestled between Saugatuck & South Haven (15 minutes either way), we’re located in the charming four-cornered town of Glenn. The drive from Chicago or Detroit is about 2 ½ hours.

We are a 3 minute walk to Lake Michigan, down a dirt road to a natural incline – one of the rare access points without stairs to the beach.

Our house is three years old with all the custom amenities and is naturally clean, clean, clean. The open floor plan includes central air, a large kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an island with four stools, a dining space seating 8 to 10, and a comfortable sitting area. We often ‘unplug’ while in Glenn, but it’s nice having Wi-Fi throughout the house and a 46” flat panel TV with cable.

The house sleeps up to 8. The Master Bedroom (king bed) is on first floor with a walk-in shower that opens to a deck with private outdoor shower. Two large guest bedrooms (queen beds) with full baths are located upstairs, as is a private loft that sleeps two (twin beds). The loft shares the larger of the two upstairs bathrooms.

Our 'Zero-Step' house makes it easy to get everywhere on the first floor, including the lovely screened porch and rear deck with porch swing and gas grill.

The beauty of our neighborhood and beach is its natural serenity; and we’re located in an area with few rentals. This is not the place for loud large parties, fireworks and late hours.

Enjoy your quiet surroundings minutes from Saugatuck, Douglas, South Haven and Holland. There are plenty of art galleries, quaint shops, antique stores, fruit farms/stands and numerous golf courses in the area.

We spend our leisure time gardening, traveling, reading and exploring culinary interests - though not necessarily in that order.

Barbara purchased this house in 2010

We love the Saugatuck area and wanted to build a serene country house that was close enough to everything. We found the perfect locale in Glenn.

Large guest bedrooms with private baths are always a nice surprise for our guests; and walking the country roads and Lake Michigan beaches never gets tiring.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house for the quiet, the peacefulness, the proximity to the lake and the small towns, the attention to detail, the embrace of the highest environmental standards, the cultivation of animal and pollinator habitats and how we felt all week in such wonderful sanctuary!

Picture Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Glenn retreat! Architecturally stunning and perfectly decorated with great amenities such as beach chairs and Wi-Fi access. The house is conveniently located close to South Haven and Saugatuck on a quiet street, and just a few minute walk to gorgeous views of Lake Michigan. Also had a chance to visit many of the nearby artisan galleries! We are looking forward to returning next year and would highly recommend this property for a relaxing vacation!

Great Kitchen!

  • 5 of 5
We were so happy to see all the professional grade pots & pans. The oven even has a griddle that fits over and pill shaped burner in the middle of the stove. Great for bacon and pancakes. We truly enjoyed both the outdoor shower and the huge shower room in the Master bedroom. Only thing missing is a fire pit and a hammock. Loved this house and how perfectly clean it was.

The Best Weekend of the Year!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance' and I are busy with 5 kids, between the two of us, and we are not left with much time for weekend getaways together. Without a doubt, I would choose this Glenn, MI. vacation home again and again for my weekend-get-a-way of choice. The homeowners created a thoughtful home with every need and want anticipated. From the tranquil Lake Michigan walks on the beach to the peaceful moments spent reading and enjoying the nature sounds from the screen porch, this home is everything that one would need to relax and enjoy your family's company. It would also be a perfect spot for extended families or several couples to be able to vacation together under one roof, still with enough room to enjoy their own privacy. While enjoying the solitude of the peaceful location of this beautiful home, you are also easily able to drive to Saugatuck, Douglas, South Haven and Holland to find award-winning restaurants and fun night-life spots. To sum it up, we would give this home an A+ rating and a must-see!

Favorite house in the area!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the Glenn home. The first time was with our family last summer, and this time we returned with two other couples for a fun weekend. We are impressed with the design of the home, first and foremost, as it is architecturally pleasing and very eco-friendly. The kitchen is stocked for real cooking if you are inclined, and the dining/living room area is great gathering area for socializing. It feels like you are staying at a friend's house, who trusts you will respect their home as you would your own. We will return again soon.

W O W!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, son in law and 5 1/2 year old twin boys and I were blown away by how gorgeous this home is. It was better than we could have imagined. The owner thought of everything. I've never been in a kitchen that was so well stocked. This home is very high end. Much thought was put into every square inch. The grounds are so pretty and the beach is a very short walk and no stairs! There were puzzles and games, bikes, fabulous beach chairs. The only negative was our weather wasn't the best but because the home was so comfortable, we didn't mind it at all. I would definitely rent this great find again.
