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

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!

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!

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!

We absolutely LOVED staying in this home! Upon our arrival everything was neat as a pin. The rooms were spacious and VERY TASTEFULLY decorated. The home itself was tucked away in a lovely area and was close to everything. We have rented a half a dozen homes over the years and this one was by far the BEST!! The home was listed on VRBO and was very accurate with regard to the photos posted. The owners provided a very detailed info sheet so we knew exactly what we were renting and how to properly close up the place at the end of our stay. We hope to rent this home again for one of our future MI. family vacations :)

Great House!!! Great Week!!! As Described!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house is just as described in the listing. Everything is very nice and new and all of the extras are there as well (eg. blender, waffle iron, gas grill, etc.). There were six people in our group, four adults and two kids, and there was plenty of room for more. This is truly a beautiful and comfortable home. The hot tub and quiet location are also great. If you like to take a morning/evening walk, you can walk on the street next to Lake Michigan, or you can walk on the beach. We would stay here again for sure. Thanks.

Beautiful, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5
My family - husband, toddler son, mom, sister, and brother-in-law - spent the week at this home at the end of June and really enjoyed our stay. The weather was not great so we were really appreciative of having such a comfortable home to spend time in. We were in the master with our son and had plenty of room to have a blow-up bed on the floor for him. The bed was really comfortable and it was nice having a master bath right there. The basement came in very handy when we had my brother, his wife and 3 kids stay over one night. It was big enough for all of them to sleep comfortably. I went on several morning runs along Lakeshore Drive, which was fabulous. And we spent a couple nights hanging in the hot tub, which was dreamy. The owners were wonderful. Always quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
