I live in Columbia Station, Ohio and enjoy making the 4 and half hour trip to the cottage as often as possible.
Rob purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Rob chose Saugatuck
I chose this property because of the great location in Saugatuck and smart, modern design of the house.
What makes this Cottage unique
Just a few steps away from the chain ferry, the stairs of Mt. Baldhead and a short walk to Oval Beach all while tucked in the beautiful wooded dunes.

Great Place, Great Location
We keep going back to River Groove because it is close to Oval Beach, to the Ferry and between Saugatuck and Douglas. The owner is always adding new gems to the retro decor. My family enjoys the amenities.
What a wonderful place. Rob, the owner, is very engaging and helpful in every way.
We truly enjoyed the location - quick walk to the "Chain Ferry" and then a fun ride into town with no parking problems. It's just the best.
Hard to find affordable 2 bedroom rentals that are nice and this certainly qualifies as one of the best. It's super quiet and secluded. Enjoy!
Great house in a great location!
We stayed at River Groove for one week and loved it! The location was perfect -- close to the beach and just a short ride on the chain ferry across to Saugatuck or drive to the other cities/towns nearby. We loved the location in the wooded setting and the street was so quiet and peaceful! Rob was fantastic to work with!!
Great location in Saugatuck
We enjoyed our stay in Saugatuck and were able to explore the area and town before the beginning of the tourist season. River Groove was a great home base and provided us with all the amenities we were looking for.
Lovely property in the trees
We had a wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend. Property was clean, modern and ideally located near Oval Beach and the Saugatuck Ferry and into downtown Saugatuck. The property was well kitted out with fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, etc. Bob was very helpful and friendly calling a few days before to give us the lowdown on the property and Saugatuck in general. He couldn’t have been more helpful. Would definitely be back!
Great location. Clean. Clever decor. Comfotable. Kind owners. Would stay here again.
