Perfect HOME away from HOME for a week!

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you April !! We are so glad your family enjoyed The Gauntlett House. It is wonderful for us to see 3 generations having a fun and relaxing week at Lake Michigan and appreciating our home, gardens and beach !!

Great Family Vacation Spot!

Wonderful location for a vacation -- near Saugatuck but right on Lake Michigan! The private beach meant we could have fires (and smores!) on the beach at night. The water was lovely during our stay. We slept 9 comfortably; everyone was happy with their bedroom. We loved the outdoor shower, too! Had a great tour of Saugatuck Brewing Company from our host, Dexter. Amazing to be staying in such a historic home so beautifully updated.
Owner's Response: THANK YOU !! We love sharing our beautiful home and wonderful beach !! We are happy you had great vacation on Lake Michigan and we would love to have to stay with us again.

The Gauntlett House exceeded our expectations. We loved the beautiful rooms and decor. My favorite place in the house was the screened in front porch where we could all enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. The palapa and hammocks were a favorite with the teenagers in our group not to mention the lovely beach. Thank you Celeste and Dexter. We plan on coming back.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Margaret ! We are so happy you and your family enjoyed our house and the beach. We
feel the house is really special and want to share it .
We loved meeting your group and would love for you to come back !

The Gauntlett house is a great cozy getaway. It is nice and quiet- an ideal place to get away from the city life or just have a nice secluded family vacation. It has beautiful scenery and easy access to the beach and comfortable hammocks. The owners are very nice, accommodating and flexible with check-in and check-out times. We would definitely come back to stay here again. Thank you so much for a wonderful time!!
Owner's Response: Thanks Mara !! We really enjoyed having your group stay in The Gauntlett House . We are so glad you had a good time and we would love you to come back especially when the lake is warmer !!

Fun Family Vacation Spot

This is a beautiful property that is in a secluded, quiet location with easy access to the beach. We have been vacationing in this area for 13 years and our past rental was not available any more. So, we started our search and this was a GREAT replacement! The property is very clean and the owners are fantastic. Hope to be there again next year!
Owner's Response: Thank you Tommi !!! We really enjoyed meeting you and having you stay in the Gauntlett Beach House. It is wonderful to see 3 generations vacationing together and we are happy you chose our house for your vacation. We hope to see you next summer !!
