Guestbook comments from the owner
"I enjoyed my time in the Parish house. The living room is especially comfortable, soothing and has a little sense of others in the room with you!



The bed! It felt like what I would view as a Shaker bed....and for me it was too hard. The workshop was fabulous, the people wonderful. We made good use of all the fresh vegetables and fruit around.



The surrounding beauty is superb. I like the cat that comes around, the hummingbird, deer and robin that showed up most days. I appreciate your sharp interest and keen eye for making it work for us, and it did.



Thank you for it all.

The Parsonage House was built in 1860 and was the Parsonage to the Methodist Church in Pier Cove during the 1860’s and 1870’s. It is one of the oldest buildings in Allegan County. Historical photos can be viewed from our website linked below at 'more information'.

SAUGATUCK PROPERTY 129235

  • 4 of 5
This rental was perfect for us four 65 year olds. Quiet, short walk to the beach, great proximity to Douglas and Saugatuck but far enough away to keep the noise down. The accommodations were fine but we aren't very picky. The kitchen could use an upgrade to the pots and pans. The one bathroom did not pose a problem for us but would if you have a bunch of people who use it a lot. It was a little problematic having to walk down the stairs from the upstairs bedroom area to use the bathroom at night. The host was great, friendly, and more than accommodating. I have no complaints considering the very reasonable price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for visiting! You have captured the essence of the fantastic location and environment of this peaceful lakeshore property. Being walkable to the lake in a wooded setting has the greatest appeal. We are constantly making improvements, being this home is an historic landmark from the Village of Pier Cove, circa 1862! This year it was new living room furniture, last year a new well with great water. The pots and pans do get beat up by the end of the season, so thanks for letting us know its time, once again, to replace what's worn.

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Parsonage House the last week of June. The house was set up well for the 6 family members who stayed the first few days, but we also were very comfortable when it was just the two of us the last few days. Very nice walk to the local beach and lovely Lake Michigan. We also enjoyed bike riding on Lakeshore Dr and even into Saugatuck. We would definitely want to come back.

CONVENIENT AND FUN PLACE TO STAY IN SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I try to spend time at the Parsonage House every summer because we have such a great time there. The location cannot be topped. It is close to a small, clean public beach, a winery, orchards, and Saugatuck-Douglas. One friend is a runner and she loves running through the forested streets in the morning. The house itself has everything we need: a serviceable kitchen, indoor and outdoor eating areas, barbecue grill, parking and a fun upstairs sleeping area with lots of room. Highly recommended for a fun, rustic girls' trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We have 'hosted' several girls getaway weekends - it seems to be a growing trend. The lakeshore area is a lovely spot for running, cycling, and swimming and we welcome those who appreciate the area.

SWEET RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time at the parsonage house. The owner was very accommodating of our schedule, and the prices were affordable. Our last minute getaway was just what the doctor ordered. My only concern would be for people with dust allergies. My son had a bit of a reaction upstairs since it is an historic property. But other than that, zero complaints. We could walk to one beach and drive to several others. The area has so many wonderful things to do and sites to see. The owner has many thoughtful items at the property for guests' use. Really lovely place and I hope we can return soon.
