About Rob

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 Michigan

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.

Notes:
River Groove is a modern urban cottage with a retro flair tucked in the wooded dunes. Many have called it a treehouse due to the height and surrounding trees. Watch for wildlfe including deer, owls, and many other interesting birds from the large screened second level porch. The location is private and peaceful yet just across the Kalamazoo River from all the action of downtown Saugatuck!

Cozy with a cool vibe and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our fall getaway to River Groove was exactly what we needed. The home was very clean and had everything we wanted...a well stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, fireplace, and a hot tub from which we watched woodpeckers and squirrels in the woods. The many windows give it a tree house view of the changing leaves. A short drive took us to wonderful restaurants ("bottomless bubbles" for brunch!), galleries, antique shops, and Oval Beach. Relaxing and romantic fall weekend without the kids but this home will also work really well when we take them in the summer.

great spot

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at River Groove. Though the weather did not cooperate as much as we'd hoped, the home offered a relaxing atmosphere. the location is a huge plus. The home has a modern-yet-cozy feel. The fireplace was perfect, the screened outdoor porch is a bonus and the hot tub wonderful after a day walking around Saugatuck!
