About Teri Dougherty

Owners are brother and sister and their spouses. We live in Omaha, Nebraska where we were raised. We love the area and wanted to buy a place that was in superb condition to share with others and to use periodically by our families.

Teri Dougherty purchased this house in 2012

Why Teri Dougherty chose Saugatuck / Douglas

We have vacationed in the area several times over the last few years visiting our brother. We fell in love with the area and the people. The beauty of the area, the peacefulness and the many things to do made us want to have a place we could call our own and share with others. This home's location and its unbelievably perfect condition made it an easy choice. It is surrounded by lush landscaping and forest. It is very private, very quiet and very serene. Relaxing on the wrap around porch or on one of the decks and watching the deer run by or listening to the birds chirp or the waters roll in off Lake Michigan make it the perfect retreat. The Sauguatuck/Douglas area are just moments away. We love the wonderful dining, entertainment, shopping and beaches. This is truly our little slice of Heaven!

What makes this house unique

From the moment we walked onto the property, we knew this was the home for us. The beautiful wrap around porch made us not want to leave. The quality and condition of the interior with its beautiful cherry wood floors, cabinetry, lighting and 360 degree view of the woods was exactly what we were looking for. The master suite with its own bath and the two large bedrooms upstairs with their own bath as well as the finished lower level is the perfect set up for a family or for several couples wanting to get away. The kitchen is a dream to work in and you never seem seperated from the other guests. The cozy den is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or sneak in an afternoon nap. The fireplace in the living room just tops off the many features. Relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a fun day and watching the trees sway lazily with the breeze is so relaxing. This home is a 10 in our books!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"As posted in our Guest Book" Your house is absolutely amazing! We had such an amazing and relaxing week! Definitely plan on doing it again next year! Thanks!

Perfect getaway!

If it's available, BOOK IT!

What a wonderful, well-built home with beautiful appointments and furnishings throughout! It was the perfect setting to celebrate a 30th birthday with 10 close friends -- and that's a tall order! (especially when it comes to trying to get everyone up and ready for the day in the morning -- showers stayed hot for all, WOW). Away from the hustle and bustle yet close enough to all our favorite Douglas/Saugatuck stores and restaurants, the home's layout strikes a great balance between space for large gatherings and small nooks to sneak away for some peace and quiet. Our dogs enjoyed exploring the adjacent woods, and the hot tub, wi-fi, and portable sound system were all perfect. We will definitely consider for future trips!

The home was warm & relaxing. The location is private, but near all the amenities of the area, as well as the lake shore. It's equipped with all the comforts of home and more. Luckily, hand soap, paper products, dish soap...were provided which made a mom's life a little easier!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed here for a girls weekend, and it was just wonderful. The home was beautiful, and had everything we needed. We loved it so much, on Saturday night we decided to stay in and sit by the fire watching movies. We will definitely be back!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a long weekend annual Girls Getaway and we just absolutely loved this home! Everything was beautiful, from the interior decor to the lovely landscaping. Even when the weather was less than favorable, we enjoyed relaxing inside and outside on the wrap-around porch. We loved ending our days with a walk to the lakefront to watch the sunset and then soaking in the hot tub afterwards. Wonderful home!

awesome place

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at this beautiful home with our family and it was a pleasure. The location is excellent, the furnishings of the home are outstanding and the kitchen was well stocked with a full range of kitchen tools to make it easy to prepare and serve our meals. We have visited Saugatuck for 15 years and this place is #1 on our list of places to stay. Thank you for the outstanding level of service and support. Great work!
