Great place to stay!
We needed a quick family weekend vacation. The place was really great. Except for the weather which lessen the fun. The hot tub made my kids really happy during the stay. Hope we can come back and probably stay longer, when budget permits us. The price was not bad at all. We will try to save money for the next family relaxing vacation. Just please add more floor rugs so who ever is staying there and using the hot tub will not wet the floor.. I tried my best to keep the floor dry! Thank you!
Great view of the lake, lovely cottage at a great price. We enjoyed our stay and hope to revisit.

Beautiful weekend at the lake
My husband and I had a fantastic weekend stay at this charming cottage on the lake. The home had everything we needed, was spic and span and was wonderfully maintained. We especially enjoyed our early morning breakfasts on the patio, overlooking the gorgeous lake, and our evening walks along the lake, gazing at the stars. We did not use the hot tub, but it looked very inviting.
We also enjoyed seeing the area, getting many great tips from the notebooks at the house. Saugatuck was our favorite. It reminded us of California's coastal cities. I shopped in the darling shops, while my husband enjoyed the book store. Phil's had delicious food, and we so enjoyed our coffee at Uncommon Coffee. Holland was charming as well, and we enjoyed relaxing with a beer at New Holland Brewing. Crane's in Fennville came highly recommended, and it didn't disappoint - the blueberry pie was delicious.
After an busy day, we cuddled up on the couch, before the lovely stone fireplace, and watched a movie on the large flat screen TV.
We loved it and definitely will be back!
Perfect for a simple weekend getaway
Spent a long weekend for a couples' getaway and the cottage was perfect. Loved the fire pit, hot tub and backyard overlooking Hutchins Lake. The photos don't do it justice. Spent hours fishing off of the private pier, relaxing on the patio and on tubes in the water that we tied to the pier. Definitely recommend Fenn Valley Winery and driving to Saugatuck for shopping and lunch. Had all of the amenities that we needed. Only complaint was the landscapers showing up at 7:30am the morning after our first night, was a surprising wake up call with the loud mowers and equipment. Otherwise very happy and plan to stay here again.
Great Couples/Foodie Getaway
Bluegill hill, while not the largest or fanciest property, comfortably kept 8 of us (4 couples in our late 20s to early 40s) quite nicely. while everyone trying to sit around the TV at once was a squeeze, there was very little reason to do so!
We spent a little time out on the lake in the canoe, made the less than 20 minute trip into Saugatuck and visited the great shops (spices, oils, local foods), and made an afternoon of visiting an orchard, a winery and a cider distiller (all of which are less than 10 minutes from the property and are on a single loop).
There are also great places in nearby Allegan and Holland (both within a half hour). The fire-pit is very nice, and being sunk into the patio made it easy to use and get around. The Hot tub made the bit of dreary weather and the slight chill more than manageable.
This was our 2nd year at Bluegill Hill, and while we are looking for a trip further north this coming year, we will likely stay here again in the future.
Bluegill Hill was everything they said it is . The cottage was clean & well equipped with all the kitchen utensils & dishes & glassware. The Weber grill worked great as did the turkey fryer.
We had a great time & we are considering a summer vacation at Bluegill Hill.
Thank you so much.
Hutchins Lake is known for its great fishing. Bring your own boat or cast a line at the end of the dock and expect to catch bluegill, bass, crappy, or perch. There are many great restaurants in the area in nearby Fennville, Saugatuck and Douglas and Crane's Orchard and Fenn Valley Winery are right around the corner. The entire area features great shopping, world-class Lake Michigan beaches, fantastic antiquing, and great galleries!
