Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description
Large, Comfortable, new in 2013
The Douglas Boathouse, sorry it is not on the water was designed and specifically built for large groups. The Main House and Keepers House make a perfect destination for family reunions, wedding groups and retreats. Six of seven bedrooms in Main House are all furnished with queen beds and the seventh bedroom the children's crew quarters will sleep four in two bunk beds. Four and two thirds bathrooms ensure the fighting over bathrooms will be kept to a minimum. The Keeper's house has two more bedrooms with queen size beds, a sixth bath, second kitchen, second fire place and more room to spread out.
The Main house has a dining table with seating for 14 and a large living room make sure that no one will be left out when gathered around the fire place. The sun porch, library and small office offer more intimate spaces. The fire pit with free wood, outdoor dining area and the private patios all offer great spaces on warm summer nights.
New yet warm. Everything was new in 2013. The building has been completely rebuilt with quality materials by a Architect/Builder. The furnishings were specifically selected for the house from Ikea and Crate and Barrel. The wood ceilings, floors and trim make the house warm. Craftsman style mosaic work, original art and creative details add character and charm.

Joanie and I have restored several buildings in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We are currently working on a Prairie Style house built in 1930.
Location, Location, Location A short walk to Douglas. Ride your bike to the beach yet we are located in a quiet residential side street. Saugatuck and Douglas are quaint small towns. We spent two years driving the west coast of Lake Michigan to find the perfect spot.
The Boathouse is unique in that it was purpose built as a vacation spot and gathering place for large groups. It not a vacation home furnished with left over furniture. Seven bedrooms, bathrooms on all floors,a large kitchen, living room, home theater, patio and more intimate rooms including the sun porch, library and small office. We remember being a kid and have built the puppet theater, Crew Quarters and engine room all for the kids. The building is furnished with all new furniture specifically selected for the house.
