There are plenty of pool chairs, traditional and 'zero-gravity' loungers, and a new outdoor sectional sofa, with coffee table. Beyond the fence, an additional acre of trees and lawn includes a large gravel fire pit with adirondack chairs for bonfires. You can also enjoys a variety of activities provided by us including: badminton, volleyball, bocce ball, and other outdoor activities, or just take a nap amidst the trees, in one of the hammocks.

Allegan county includes the towns of Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville – a community often referred to as the 'Art Coast of Michigan' because of its thriving arts scene including galleries, antique shops, studios, museums, and live theater.

We are located in a quiet, rural area, but walking distance to downtown Fennville, which includes a grocery store and restaurants.

We are also 5 minutes from several great attractions:

1. FennValley Winery & Vineyard tours and tastings

2. Crane's U-Pick Orchards

3. Virtue Cider Tasting Room & Orchards

4. Antiques shopping

5. Fresh farm stands

ALLEGAN ACRES is the perfect choice for family vacations/reunions, and gatherings of friends. Our goal is simple: we want you to have such a great vacation experience at ALLEGAN ACRES, that you will want to tell others and return again & again.

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience staying at Allegan Acres. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could possibly need. There was enough room for everyone to have their own space, the basement worked well as the kids hang out with the pool table and ping pong table. The hot tub was in working order and was great on a cold, wintry day. We did a tour and tasting at the Fennville Winery which was nice and found somewhere to sled right in back of the house. Overall, we had a wonderful stay!

This home is comfortable, cozy, and very inviting.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 14 had no desire to go to the beach because of the beautiful pool and pool area. Chairs and lounges were in abundance around the pool. Campfires at the fire pit were a nightly occurrence. Everyone loves smores!!!! The home was very clean and well supplied with towels so everyone could have a clean dry towel each day. Having laundry soap and dishwasher soap was an added bonus. With 14 in our family, we were running the dishwasher 3 times a day and washing a load of towels everyday. A faulty gas grill was replace immediately with no questions asked.

My only issue with this property is that it was listed as having 6 bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms are in the basement and there are NO windows that are fire code safety windows that would allow you to exit them if there was a fire blocking the stairway. We had concerns sleeping in the basement. This is the only reason that we would not rent this property again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed our property and your stay, and thank you for your review! Just to clarify, of the 6 bedrooms we have, only one is in the basement as described on the website. The website also provides the details regarding the other sleeping areas,as well as the 5 other bedrooms which are all located on the main floor or upstairs. We know that your vacation time is precious, and we are concerned not only with our guests' enjoyment but also for their safety. We comply with all safety regulations and the house has always passed every certification inspection with flying colors. Again, thank you for your review. We hope that our response helps to further clarify the sleeping accommodations that we offer.

Great space and location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Allegan Acres for our group of 18 for a bachelorette weekend! Fennvalley Winery is literally just 5 minutes away and the house was exactly as pictured. Jayne the housekeeper and Rick the owner were very easy to reach and responsive when we couldn't figure out the stereo system--which was one of the coolest aspects of the house once we got it working.

Really Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

A great house with nice amenities! We love our stay at Allegan Acres! I would say the only thing was that the pull out sofa beds were a bit uncomfortable but it had plenty of room and was a very good value!
