Overview

Saugatuck / Douglas House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1 half bath, sleeps 6 (w/Aerobed to sleep 2 more)

You will love this location! Lakeside Beach House is less than a 5 minute walk to beautiful Douglas Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan & just a short bike ride to the DT areas of Douglas & Saugatuck.

This home is fully equipped with everything you can possibly need for cooking, cleaning, laundry, sleeping, entertaining & going to the beach. Simply put, Lakeside feels like home! It's beautifully furnished, impeccably clean & maintained and so comfortable that you won't want to leave.

Walk with morning coffee to Douglas Beach, searching for sea glass & take in Lake Michigan. Enjoy the cozy fireplace in the living room during cooler evenings. There's plenty of space and a great open floor plan. Free wireless access is provided for all those who keep up on e-mails or just love to play online.

Lakeside is just right for the perfect vacation! The beach, regardless of weather is spectacular. In town, you will find art galleries and more than enough shops & restaurants.

The first floor has a spacious sun-filled living room with vaulted ceilings, adjacent dining area, cook's kitchen, half-bath, and a fabulous master bedroom with full bath. BRAND NEW the Fall of 2014 is a 14' x 20' screened in porch with a lovely walkway to the outdoor patio and outdoor shower. This has quickly become everyone's 'favorite' room of the house.

The second floor has a large closet housing the washing machine and clothes dryer, two roomy beautiful bedrooms with a shared Jack 'n Jill bathroom. Both rooms have stunning views of the wooded lot.

All bedrooms are furnished with high-end pillow-top mattresses, luxurious linens and towels, ceiling fans, and HD TVs with full cable services.

Lake Michigan is so close by that when the windows are open, or when you are sitting on our patio or NEW porch you can hear a 'roaring sound'...it's nothing other than the waves of Lake Michigan hitting the sandy shore.

Luxurious Accommodations in Tranquil Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying in this homey yet elegant beach house last month for 4 nights. We were lucky enough to score a beautiful fall weekend after the owners had completed their wonderful screened in porch. We used the porch for our morning coffee and evening wine outside nestled amongst the peaceful woodsy area.
We came as two couples (our son and his wife) and my husband and I, and found everything we needed was there for our use! The house is beautifully decorated and has many amenities including a fireplace which was wonderful on those cool evenings.
The area is great for rest, shopping, art galleries and easy access to Holland or Grand Rapids.
I look forward to another fall stay at this fabulous beach house!

Memorable summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful week at the lake house. The house is adorable, spacious and welcoming. We loved using the outdoor shower after beach days and sitting in the screened in porch. Douglas beach has soft, warm sand and was perfect for our kids to run and swim. The five minute walk to the beach is part of the fun because the neighborhood is so cute and beautiful. We would walk there after dinner and watch the sun set. We also took a short drive to Oval beach. Oval beach is bigger, there is a concession stand and also a perfect place to run around and play. One day, we climbed Mount Baldhead (300 stairs) and ran down the back sand dune to Oval beach. Highly recommend. The lake house is conveniently close to downtown Douglas and Saugatuck where you can shop and dine. We loved Wild Dog Grille in Douglas. It was a pleasure working with Jo and she is very accommodating. We had a wonderful time!

Wonderful Vacation Beach House

  • 5 of 5
This Douglas Beach House is simply wonderful and a great vacation house for young families. We had a three generation family gathering; 5 adults, a five year old and an infant and had plenty of space for everyone. Lake Michigan's Douglas Beach is a short 5-10 minute walk (depending on your pace!). The house is equipped with an outdoor shower for beach sand removal and lots of beach towels, chairs and toys. The accommodations are better than advertised; the owners had just completed a new screened-in porch which we enjoyed for our evening gatherings. Douglas and Saugatuck are a short bike ride from the house and made for excellent outings. It's a very family friendly location. I would gladly return and recommend this property for friends and family. My five year old grandson wanted to stay forever! At week's end he asked, "Why do we have to leave?" I can't say it any better!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
How lucky we were to find this "diamond in the rough." We were very fortunate to experience splendid weather along with a well equipped, centrally located home with many amenities, beautiful decorating and in close proximity to Lake Michigan. We awoke each morning to sunshine, then on to a two block walk to the shores of the Lake for a morning stroll. The closeness to the towns of Holland, Douglas and Saugatuck was wonderful for both shopping and dining out. I would highly recommend this property, we will be returning!

Our stay here was a dream!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was better than described- updated quilts in each if the rooms and beautiful decorative touches to bathrooms and living spaces. It was immaculate with an open and airy feel that led to an unbelievably relaxing weekend! We had every amenity at our fingertips- the kitchen was fully stocked and ready for use! Each room was beautifully decorated and spotless-and the beds were soooo comfortable!
The owner Jo, was beyond hospitable and gracious with amazing customer service; quick to respond to emails; and more than happy to answer any of our questions and concerns. She even gave us many dining out options listing her fave- everyday people cafe. We followed her suggestion to eat there for brunch and had a magnificent meal!!
We even braved the cold and asked some friendly locals to snap a few pictures of our group posing in front of beautiful Lake Michigan.
Three couples shared this home and had ample room to enjoy games by the fireplace and family style dinners in the dining area. We couldn't have asked for more pleasant accommodations and look forward to spending many vacations here!
We have rented quite a few vacation homes throughout the years, and this one was the by far the best! This is a place I would be more than happy to recommend for vacations,
Thank you Jo for letting us spend time with friends at your beautiful home!
