We Love The Tea House!

  • 5 of 5
We love theTea House!
The feel of this quaint and well appointed cottage reminds me of what Lake Michigan beach life was meant to be.
The rooms are plentiful and have the charm of a simpler time. They get a lovely breeze off Lake Michigan, which is right across the street. You can hear the water at night and if that isn't what the doctor ordered, I don't know what is!
They caring owners have thought of everything you will need to make your summer beach getaway
perfect!

Basic Michigan cottage

  • 3 of 5
The Tea Room is billed as a vintage cottage and is definitely worn around the edges. It is in a wonderful location with easy access to the beach and has a great backyard and screened porch for games and family gatherings. The house is advertised as sleeping up to 10. We had that number of people and feel that is too large a group for the tiny cottage to handle since it has only two small, very basic bathrooms which were stretched by constant use. The cottage was not particularly clean and could use a good handyman to patch screens, clear plumbing problems and do basic maintenance. The refrigerator died during our stay. The rental company did a great job of replacing it quickly and the owner was happy to reimburse us for lost food. Would recommend this cottage for a small family or friends group who want a relaxed, low-maintenance setting.

Owner's Response: The Tea Room is a classic cottage with vintage charm. It does indeed offer a fantastic location, private 'shared beach' access on a beautiful, pristine area on Lake Michigan.

The cottage is charming with many wonderful features, a comfortable living room with large, wood-burning fireplace, a great back yard, deck & screened porch with some lovely new furniture. It features a large, bright dining room, comfortable bedrooms. The downstairs bath is a basic bath with shower stall only but is freshly painted and clean. The upper bath is actually quite roomy offering a lovely deep, vintage, claw-foot tub which was refinished last year. It is freshly painted with brand new curtains and shower curtains as well. The baths and kitchen are always thouroughly sanitized between guests. The kitchen is roomy with updated cabinets and offers a brand new microwave and refrigerator. Yes, the refridge did go out last year, it happens. It was replaced within 7 hours.

The cottage itself is older but in good condition. It is always clean, we are known for this! We are extremely particular about this to the point of, if needed, doing the floors 2 & 3 times to make sure we get all the sand which comes up from all the beach fun.

I suspect that perhaps what our guests thought might not be 'clean' is the fact that a couple of the floors, kitchen/bath lino & porch floor (painted), are a bit older, and are an oatmeal color, and though clean, don't look super bright and fresh. The porch floor too, though always 'clean' does need sanding and repainting. Something on slate for this coming spring. The screen/storm windows too are older, but again are clean as are the sills and windows, checked and cleaned as needed each turnover.

This group of guests did number 10 which exceeded our maximum number and at their request was given an exception. They arrived with a very large volume of belongings as well so I can see how they may have felt cottage a bit small for them. We do prefer smaller parties as well. But the cottage has ample space for 8 very comfortably.

The Tea Room is, as are most cottages, a work of love in progress. No place is ever 'perfect' but The Tea Room is a wonderful cottage offering a spectacular location. Our pricing is in line with other area cottages and amenities. We work to improve every year so that our guests may have the best experience...
Please read our other 'glowing reviews'.
We hope that you'll consider staying with us.
You'll be glad you did!

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5
We fully enjoyed our stay in the Tea Room cottage. It has a great cottage feel and lots of charm. Things we especially loved were the big back yard, the screened-in porch, the fireplace with lots of firewood at the ready and the laundry room. Extra parking in the back was also a plus and beach access was nearby. It was fun to read about the history of the lakeshore hand typed by a relative. The owners were easy to deal with; we would definitely stay here again.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing beach vacation with plenty of charm yet modern amenities, this cottage is for you! There is plenty of room for large families and you can feel the stress pour from your body the minute you walk in the front door. Life slows down as you enjoy coffee on the screened in porch and listen to the calling of Lake Michigan, just a very short walk down the path to the water. This is a pristine location known for its beach and beautiful views north towards Holland, MI. We absolutely loved our stay and will be back here again next year!

This property has all you need to enjoy a quiet, relaxing Michigan beach vacation. The cottage is charming and very functional. There is plenty of space and the screened in patio is great for card games and enjoying the lake breeze and the sounds of the waves lapping the beach. This property is in a prime location along Lake Shore Drive in Douglas. Plenty of outstanding restaurants and shops close by in Douglas and Saugatuck. We have rented this property for the last 5 summers and we will keep coming back!
