BUTTERFLY COTTAGE IS A TRULY UNIQUE COTTAGE LOCATED DOWNTOWN.

Saugatuck / Douglas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Butterfly Cottage is a truly unique cottage located in the Historic district of Saugatuck. Casual cottage styling mixed with colorful spaces, this cottage makes for a comfortable stay in Saugatuck. This quaint cottage will accommodate 8 or 9 people comfortably.

The main house has two bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and the other with a full. The bungalow, just steps away in the backyard, serves as the third bedroom and has heat and air conditioning. The bungalow has a queen size bed and also bunk beds. The bungalow has a full bath that was added in 2011.

Located in the heart of the village district, plan on walking to all the in-town locations. The river is just a few hundred feet away with shops, restaurants and parks located within a 3-10 minute walk. If you are familiar with Saugatuck, Butterfly cottage is a stone's throw from the public boat launch, Gleason's market and Ida Reds.

We are happy to be one of the few places to welcome well mannered pets in our cottage. An added plus, the back yard is fully fenced.

Our home was fully booked all but 2 nights during the summer season this year. We are beginning to fill up for 2012, so please contact us early if your dates are limited. During June, July and August, we try to limit ( with some flexibility ) our rental periods to full weeks running Saturday to Saturday.

We purchased Butterfly Cottage in 1999 as a weekend getaway. Saugatuck is such a unique community,with a lot to offer. We enjoyed our weekends in Saugatuck so much, we sold our house in Kalamazoo and moved out to Butterfly Cottage full time from 2001 through 2003. When we decided to start a family, we made our cottage available for seasonal rentals for a few years. During this time, it was nearly always full and we enjoyed reading the comments left by our guests.

Loved this cottage and town

This was our first visit to Michigan and we knew little about this area and the town of Saugatuck. Saugatuck is very quaint, quiet, and sweet. I would stay there again. There was snow on the ground and it was snowing when we arrived - all wonderful.
The cottage was just what we needed. It was clean and cute and the beds were warm and comfortable. I did wish that the fireplace was functioning. It was also a great location. I would highly recommend this VRBO. The owner was also friendly and responsive.

We have stayed at a few other places and the pictures on the websites do not meet up to the actual house. This house does, so beautiful, we felt right at home. Very clean and well maintained, and the yard is great for dogs. The detached unit behind the house was brand new and very quiet...only problem with that is we could never get the door to lock, had to be a trick to it I'm sure, but it just wouldn't lock for me. The neighborhood is very nice, big beautiful homes with nice landscaping, which made for nice walks with the dogs. We can't wait to go back. Make sure to visit South Haven and Holland - just minutes away.

we all love the cottage. The dogs loved the fenced in yard. We grilled out on the gas grill. We would do again next summer. We arrived on Sept.3- Sept. 9. The property was clean and well maintained. I would recommend the star of Saugatuck boat ride and the dune buggy ride. I would recommend the property to a friend or relative.

Butterfly was everything the description said it was....charmingly decorated with many amenities, conveniently located to downtown Saugatuck, parks, river fun, Lake Michigan, Dunes State Park , and so we could walk everywhere or just drive a short way. We all loved it and want to come back.
