Overview

Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

Looking for seclusion? This beautiful spot is a must!

Though Indian Pointe can accommodate up to five people, it is best appreciated as a romantic hideaway for 2. Enjoy all the comforts of home and more, while you relax in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the Kalamazoo River and Potawatomie Marshlands.

Bird-watch from the screen room, ride your mountain bikes, kayak through the marsh, cross-country ski, take your puppy for a long walk in the woods, then cook in or out...all with a view to behold. Chances are you won´t want to leave to dine out, but fine dining options in Saugatuck & Douglas are only a moments drive away.

Cedar walls, vaulted ceilings and an entire east wall of glass blend the house with its surrounding 2 acres of woods and river front. Snuggle in front of the fire, share wine on the screened deck, fish from the seawall, spot bald eagles circling the marsh, and listen to the ancient cries of the Sandhill cranes without leaving the property.

A 5 minute drive places you in the heart of Saugatuck, and in 7 minutes you can be stretched out on Lake Michigan´s Oval Beach, rated one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in the country! So whether your vacation plans include wild life or the WILD life, Indian Point will be one spot you must revisit time and again.

About Lynda (616) 836-2719 or Jody (269) 760-1566

Joe and Lynda Petty moved to Saugatuck in 1983 when they purchased The Park House and converted it into a bed and breakfast. Falling in love with the area, we purchased the property at Indian Point to have a place to 'retire' once our innkeeping days were done. Indian Point was the first property in our rental program and it became such a successful rental that we only get to use it ourselves a few weeks a year.

Lynda (616) 836-2719 or Jody (269) 760-1566 purchased this house in 1995

Why Lynda (616) 836-2719 or Jody (269) 760-1566 chose Michigan

The first time we took a drive down 131st Street we both said, 'Boy, we could sure live here!' Ten years later we needed a break from the inn so we took a drive to an advertised open house. When we walked in the door and looked over the marsh we decided we had to have the house. Even though it was the Saturday of Labor Day , we put the deal together before the end of the weekend.

What makes this house unique

Our 2 favorite activities are relaxing in front of the fireplace and sitting in the hot tub! We never even turn the jets on, preferring instead to hear all the sounds of the marsh at night. The grandsons really like fishing from the seawall and taking the 2 person kayak around the marsh is a wonderful way to touch nature.

Very Cool Place

  • 5 of 5

We rented Indian Point over the Thanksgiving weekend and could not be happier. The location is amazing, close to Saugatuck, Douglas, Holland, South Haven, yet you felt like you were worlds away as the house is tucked back on a long driveway and then faces the river and marsh so there is no one across from you. We had neighbors on one side, but we never even saw them. The house is really funky (in a good way - I loved it!)..... fantastic wood interior which gave it the cabin/cottage feel, great screen room, wood stove, lots of live plants, hidden second bathroom in the large bedroom - it took us a day before we knew it was even there behind the mirrors. Washer/Dryer were also "hidden" behind large wood doors - great use of space throughout the house . The bed was very comfortable and the view in the morning (with the sand hill cranes as your wake-up call) was beautiful. We had a friendly owl visit one night which was a rare site for us. The hot tub was so relaxing and private, the riverfront was great (we'll have to come back when it's warmer to kayak it). Our little dogs loved the stairs down (and up) to the river - that alone would have been enough exercise for them, but the roads in the neighborhood were perfect too as most are dead ends so not a lot of traffic to deal with on morning walks. It's also very close to Saugatuck Dunes which was another great place to walk/hike. Everything you could possibly need was provided. We would definitely go back - maybe next time when it's warmer outside. Thanks for sharing your house! It really is a unique and wonderful place.

Amazing getaway

I absolutely loved the cabin and location. Perfect place to get away from the hectic city life of Chicago and just BE. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Escape from Reality

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! Yes the mosquito crop is abundant this year with all the rain. I hope you found the spray in the closet....not my favorite either, but better than being eaten. Please come back this fall or even winter...beautiful time and no mosquitoes!

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The location is excellent, peaceful and secluded. While the rain kept us inside for the first couple of days, this well-appointed cabin kept us comfortable and entertained. When the sun came out to play, we were only minutes away from Downtown Saugatuck & Douglas, sandy beaches, and glorious nature. The dogs were also impressed! We very much hope to return soon. A much needed recharge for the batteries!
