About the property

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.

Other amenities include: WiFi, riverfront fire pit, DISH TV, central AC, washer & dryer.

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. New in 2016, patio deck overlooking the marsh and flag stone patio with fire pit at the waterfront.

World class view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a lovely weekend in August. The view our across the Kalamazoo river and wildlife marshes was spectacular. I could see for miles across river and wild marshes. The property was charming and we especially enjoyed the hot tub.

Cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Indian Pointe and it was as wonderful, if not much better (because this time was for my honeymoon!) than the first! The addition of the stairs to the river was a major plus! Not to menation the overall amenities and cleanliness of the Cottage! We would recommend this vacation home to anyone who wants to relax in a quiet environment yet have the opportunity to enjoy Saugatuck!

What an awesome place! Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I fell in love with this place. We've stayed at a lot of houses/cabins and this was the most well stocked property we've ever come across. You can tell that the owners are classy people and care about their property. We loved the peace and quiet and the abundant wildlife. We didn't even go into Saugatuck for 2 days after our arrival. We are already planning on booking here again next year in the fall. A 5 star rating isn't high enough!

Island of Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

As we drove down the driveway on our arrival, my wife said "How could you stick me in the middle of no place?" In reality, this is easily less than 10 minutes from downtown Saugatuck (where you might not find a place to park). The photos' don't really do the cottage justice. The Kalamazoo river runs immediately in front of the property, then several thousand feet of wetlands. Occasional kayakers or a small boat go past - otherwise just nature, more red wing blackbirds than you can count.

The cottage is very neat and clean, wonderful screened in porch, our cat's favorite spot. A number of very nice restaurants within 20 minutes so cooking never came into play, but there is everything available if you decide to eat in; including a very nice Weber grill.

The bedroom is quite large with a wall of windows and a half bath. Also a cozy dining area with large windows looking down at the river. Good size flat screen with Direct Tv.

Neighbors on either side, but still the feeling of being alone on the river. We had an exceptionally nice week with an almost full moon rising over the river in a crystal clear sky on our last night. Pretty awesome.

We've already reserved next year.
