Overview

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.

About Scott Sanderson

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great relaxing time here in Saugatuck as always. It's a nice little get away. The Butterfly Cottage is nicely put together...we love the color schemes. Of course the best parts are Kilwin's Ice Cream and Oval Beach. Wonderful time...hope to be back in this cottage next year. Thank You!

Wonderful stay at the Butterfly Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, father, stepmother, and I stayed at the cottage for a weekend in April and it was wonderful. The cottage was very well equipped-- we like to cook rather than eat out, and the kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything you would need. It's cozy and decorated beautifully... and our bed was beyond comfortable-- so much so that I want the same pillows for our own home! We didn't need to use the bungalow because there were only four of us but it is charming and brand new. If we return to Saugatuck this is the only place we will stay! Thank you, Scott!

Fabulous treasure downtown Saugatuck

  • 5 of 5

The truly unique Butterfly House is our home away from home. We arrived for thanksgiving weekend and only expected some left over snow. To our surprise the home has been upgraded with beautiful new furnishings and linens! We unpacked and lifted our fit up for some relaxation. The owner Scott is always available to answer questions or help with any concerns. The only trouble with this greatly located property is it's popularity! We can never get a reservation during "season.". Fabulous treasure in downtown Saugatuck! Thanks again!

Great Cottage, Close to Town, Perfect for Vacation with Pets

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Butterfly Cottage. It is close to town and an easy and close walk to the shops, attractions and boardwalk. The fenced in back yard made for a safe environment for our two little dogs and peace of mind for me! The owner was great to work with and quick to respond to my emails. I would highly recommend this cottage for your stay in Saugatuck.

Really Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This place was super sweet. Very comfortable, clean and decorated very nicely. My whole family was relaxed and we loved the fact we could just walk a couple of blocks for shopping and dinner.

Loved this cottage and town

  • 5 of 5

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.
