PERFECT BEACH GET-AWAY ~ LUXURY JUST 5 MIN FROM THE SHORE....

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.

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 BRAND NEW patio you can hear a 'roaring sound'...it's nothing other than the waves of Lake Michigan hitting the sandy shore.

We love this house! It is so spotless, tastefully decorated, and sooooo relaxing! It is bright with natural light and has excellent gathering spaces both indoors and out. The process of renting was easy and expectations are clear. We will definitely return.

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!

GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My mom, sisters, nieces and I stayed at Lakeside for a girls weekend. From the minute we walked in, we were just in love with this place. It was a very cool day when we checked in and the fireplace was such a cozy treat. The home is beautifully decorated and very clean.

We were so happy to enjoy the gorgeous fall colors and the quaint shops in both Douglas and Saugatuck. Ate lunch at Phil's and it was excellent. Went to Everyday People Cafe for brunch on Sunday. Highly recommend the Bloody Mary bar. A walk to the beach on a brisk fall evening had it's own extraordinary beauty.

We would love to come back and stay here again. Just can't recommend this place enough. We all felt so comfortable and right at home.

P.S. The deer visiting us each morning and evening was an added bonus.

FALL COLORS WEEK-END IN DOUGLAS, MI

  • 5 of 5
We just loved our week-end away in Douglas, Michigan. This three bedroom house was so cozy and welcoming. The listing description is very accurate. The property was very clean and new. We could tell the owner takes a lot of pride in the property. The customer service we got was excellent and I would love to stay here again with my family and I would highly recommend it to a friend or relative!
We went for a bike ride along the lakeshore, shopping in downtown Saugatuck, and had a terrific sandwich at the Boardwalk Cafe. We ate at Phil's for dinner and I had my favorite, perch. Sunday we took a walk along the beach and saw a bald eagle perching above us on a tree. We had dinner at Everyday People Cafe, in Douglas, Mi. One of our favorite places to eat. We had wonderful fall week-end and I can't wait to do it again next year!

DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE AND WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a great house, nicely furnished, with a good kitchen/living area. I wanted beach access nearby, outdoor space, and three bedrooms. I got all that and more. The house is immaculate, almost brand new, and includes art work done by the owner’s family. All the electronics and beach/recreation equipment you need is there. We walked to the beach every day, usually went back again to see the sunset and cooked at home most nights. That enabled us to go to Everyday People Cafe, our favorite restaurant, more than once. We went bicycling, swimming and antiquing. We was one of the best vacations we have ever had and we will be going back again!
