Saugatuck House Rental Photos and Description

House, Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8): Additional Cottage Sleeps 2

Nicest location in town! Beautiful historic Italinate home built in 1868. The 'Pond Winslow' homestead has been awarded the prestigious Heritage Preservation award for Honor and Respect by the Saugatuck Douglas Historical Society. Located on the hill over looking the town square. The home has been beautifully updated, including kitchen, newly remodeled bathrooms and restored old growth hardwood flooring through out. First floor includes, dine in kitchen with laundry, living room, dining room, half bath, bed room (queen bed) with en suite full bath, and glassed/screened in porch. Second floor has master bedroom (queen bed) with private sun porch, 3rd bedroom (bunk beds) and full bath. Kitchen is fully out fitted - just bring your favorite food and beverages. Bedrooms and baths are complete with linens. Beautiful flag stone patio with large built in fire pit, lots of grilling accessories. 'Up North' feel in town! In laws want to come too? Ask about the additional cottage with room for two!


Quiet, peaceful location surrounded by mature trees and tranguail gardens, yet just a few steps from the thriving downtown with all of its associated activities: Shops, Antique Stores, Art Galleries, Restaurants, Bars and Coffee shops. Utilize the chain ferry and walk or ride your bike to the beautiful Oval Beach. Easy drive to the many local golf courses, Fenn Valley Vineyards, surrounding fruit farms and other area atractions.

About Kenneth A. Morris

Hello, Happy Family Picture---traveling some where????. Graduated from Saugtuck High School in 1981. Family has owned the house since 1978. Bought the house from my mom 20 years back or so, planned to live there, but life got in the way!!! Get back when we can, our loss is your gain!

Kenneth A. Morris purchased this house in 1978

Why Kenneth A. Morris chose Michigan

It is the house I grew up in!

What makes this house unique

Wonderfull old house that overlooks downtown, at least when the leaves are not on the tress. Very enjoyable as you can walk to everything in town, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Park the car at the house, and forget about it for the rest of your stay. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are all up to date and in good clean condition. Additionally, local management and over site of the property ensures none of the unforeseen problems that can result from long distance owners that may not be fully aware of the day to day situation.

Fabulous 1800's Home with Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This home provides a warm, charming atmosphere within a few blocks of downtown Saugatuck, MI. It is the perfect location for exploring the area on bike or in the car. Ken is a friendly, attentive owner who is readily available to answer questions. We loved our visit and hope to return in the near future. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

The Pond Winslow home was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us ladies that spent 3 days/2 nights at the Pond Winslow home in Saugatuck. We had a fantastic time, and loved the house, the location, and the condition of the very comfortable home! I especially was impressed at how organized everything was, and how clean and well furnished. Would absolutely recommend this rental and hope we can return next year. So happy we found this gem. Thanks. Karla

Comfy Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Two families with small kids enjoyed the short walk to the heart town, a quick drive to Holland, the cozy fireplace, playing games, and cooking yummy meals. We could even see New Year's fireworks from the living room window! We loved it. Kenneth the owner made everything easy.
