Magical!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the Pier Cove Farm house. It was the perfect spot for us to stay with 3 generations of our family. The house was spacious and well-appointed without feeling fussy. It was clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing week. The owners, Dexter and Celeste, were lovely and accommodating. For instance, when Celeste learned we were interested in picking berries and making jam, she brought over an extra big pot. Dexter helped us set up our bonfire on the beach and brought over the perfect tool for roasting marshmallows. We felt utterly at home and well-tended.
The bedrooms were ideal for us. The toddler slept in the little room just off the master bedroom where his parents slept. Our 7 and 9 year olds slept in the room with the twin beds. We stayed in the double bedroom on the second floor and our grandmother slept in the double bed on the ground floor.
We availed ourselves of the wonderful restaurants, hiking, bike paths, antiquing, and berry picking in the area. My only regret is that I didn't sit on the charming screened-in porch to read more!
We would highly recommend this magical place.

Perfect Private Beach

  • 5 of 5
We love staying at Gauntlett House. This was our family's second year and we're already looking forward to returning next year! Celeste and Dexter are wonderful hosts. The house is truly well stocked. I usually pack extra paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc when we rent vacation properties, but we didn't even need to bring any of it. Our family enjoys riding bikes up and down Lakeshore Drive. West Side County park just down the road has a nice playground for younger children. The location is perfect for driving to Earl's or Crane's for donuts and berries for "second breakfast". The private beach with the shady palapa is the highlight of this property. It is a delight to have your own space away from the crowds during the day. The bonfires on the beach at night are very fun and something you can't enjoy at the public beaches.

well equipped, very clean, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
This updated farmhouse is perfect for a family retreat at the beach. You are across the street from Lake Michigan, the beach is beautiful and you can walk for miles! Owners are very accommodating. Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville (and their amazing restaurants) are all within 10 min. drive). Its pretty much the perfect location for a west side lake vacation.

Good family place

  • 4 of 5
Our family with grandparents and babies all had a wonderful time at the Gauntlett House. It was actually our second stay here as we like it so much. The back deck and large yard are terrific for kids playing. The screened porch is great for reading. The owners are friendly and very helpful without being intrusive.

Great property for kids!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Gauntlett house! It's an old farm house with a lot of charm. Our party consisted of two families with kids aged 7, 5, 3, and 1. The large backyard and proximity to the private beach are major highlights of this property. The pictures really don't do it justice. Not having to pack 4 kids in a car with sand, beach toys, etc. was by far the best thing about this property. The space is well laid out inside and there's a bonus nursery attached to a large master bedroom. The only drawback was there is only one shower inside, although there is an additional outside shower for washing off sand from the beach. Our kids had an absolute blast and the property is two exits away from downtown Sagautuck. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

Perfect HOME away from HOME for a week!

  • 5 of 5
This updated and very clean home is the place you want to be for a weekend or a week away. You will fall in love with the gorgeous view of the lake from the front sun porch each morning while you have your coffee. You are just a few steps away from the nice stairs that will take you down to the beach. Chairs, hammocks and the gorgeous beach await you. The palopa is great for those who prefer to stay out of the sun or to house kiddos who may need a rest.
The Gauntletts' graciously provided fire wood at the top of the steps if we wished to have a bonfire. After the day at the beach the outdoor shower was a great place to clean up and soap and shampoo were provided. We enjoyed very nice dinners on the back deck enjoying the wooded scenery and gorgeously kept gardens. The home was immaculate with great bedrooms and linens that were very clean and decorated in very good taste. The home was stocked with all the items we needed for dinners in the home as well as dish detergents, toilet paper, propane and clothing detergents. Dexter visited often to check on us and was there to answer questions and help if needed. However, we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this gorgeous home. You will love staying in the Gauntlett's home as well as enjoy Saugatuck brewing and other fine restaraunts and places near by.
