Although you may never want to venture out, there is an incredible array of things to do in the area. 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. The property is just 10-15 minutes from downtown Saugatuck, Douglas, & the Lake Michigan beaches.

We are also within 5 minutes from several great attractions:

1. FennValley Winery & Vineyard tours and tastings

4. Antiques shopping

5. Fresh farm stands

6. Summerhouse Lavender Farm

9. Many others!

THE HOUSE:

You will find that this property offers every amenity one could desire from a vacation rental, and much more. On the rental market since 2009, this gorgeous 4,000 square foot house was tastefully re-decorated with an eclectic blend of antiques and modern furniture. The house features hardwood floors throughout the home, central A/C, and dimmers on almost every light switch. An entertainer's dream, ALLEGAN ACRES boasts 2 wood-burning fireplaces, a library with marble surround faux fireplace & filled with books, stereo system with speakers throughout the interior & exterior of the home and wireless or cable i-pod/smart phone connection, high speed wireless internet, DISH satellite TV, and 2 TV's with DVD's & DVR's, including 1 large flat screen in the great room/living room. You will find the finished basement to be a gaming paradise which features a pool & ping pong table, game table, stereo speakers, TV, and bar. Careful attention has been paid to every detail to anticipate your basic needs and decadent desires. Even sanitized Crocs are provided for your enjoyment and make it convenient when using the outdoor hot tub - especially in the winter.

THE OUTDOOR SPACE:

On the nearly 3-acre, beautifully landscaped property, you can choose from taking a dip in the large in-ground concrete heated swimming pool, soaking in the six-person hot tub (open year-round), lounging around the pool deck, grilling out on our gas grill (propane provided) and dining al fresco under the pergola - all within the complete privacy of the 6-foot cedar fence. There are plenty of pool chairs, rafts, noodles and both traditional and 'zero-gravity' pool loungers. Beyond the fence, an additional acre of trees and lawn includes a large gravel fire pit with adirondack chairs for bonfires, a hammock, and plenty of space for lawn games. The selection of lawn games we provide ebbs & flows depending on availability and which games our guests tend to leave behind after their stay, so we encourage you to bring any games you feel passionate about and you are welcome to leave any behind for others to enjoy.

Great house, loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. Our whole family could get together and stay and there was plenty of room! Kitchen had all the necessary stuff so we were able to cook a great thanksgiving meal. Only had one roll of toilet paper per bathroom and with16 people for 4 days, that was not enough, but that info was listed in the rental docs so we were aware of it before. Nice location so we had lots to do and plenty of room to hang out at the house when we wanted. Family all wants to come back in the summer to be able to use the pool. Would recommend this house for future use.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Allegan Acres! We had about 15 guys (ages 21-60) stay the weekend and had more than enough room for everyone to sleep and gather for meals. We enjoyed golfing at a local golf course and found the small town to have everything we needed as the weekend went on. The home was clean and well maintained when we arrived. We had a very enjoyable weekend with no complaints or changes we would make to better our stay! I would highly recommend this property for any type of gathering!

Perfect getaway with a large group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband, and 16 other friends went to this great getaway for a three-day weekend. We try to have a large group of friends go on a trip once or twice a year and this year might be the best so far. This home has a lot of amenities and comfortably slept all eighteen of us. The surround sound was easy to use and supplied music throughout the entire home, including the backyard. The large fire pit was great for cooking s'mores at night. The stars are absolutely beautiful! I didn't think you would be able to see the Milky Way from the home, but I found myself laying in the backyard just looking up for at least an hour or two! The hot tub and pool were perfect for a late-summer swim. The basement also was a great place for a few people who wanted to play some ping-pong. I would definitely recommend coming here in a heartbeat. Lots of fun places to go to within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Tons of towels, plates, silverware, and cups were provided which is perfect for such a large group. The main beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable. I did not sleep on any of the pull outs, but I did not hear any complaints from my friends. There is also tons of seating outside around the pool which is perfect for such a large group. We also had great communication from the owner and caretaker prior to going on our trip. I would definitely love to come back maybe next year if they will have us!

Large, beautifully maintained, fully supplied home perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 14/15 people, including six children ages 1 to 11 stayed for a week in mid-August and found a very welcoming environment for a family retreat. There is room for everyone to be together and to separate into the various rooms if they wish. It is a quality-built house on a large and beautiful propery and nicely furnished. There is a huge outdoor dining table and chairs. The pool chairs are a nice quality and the property is fully stocked with outdoor games, plenty of pool equipment, a cook's kitchen, endless towels and pretty much anything else that comes to mind. We bought some wood and enjoyed s'mores sitting around the outdoor fire pit, and the huge barbecue was more than adequate for our group. The pool is large and well-maintained, as is the hot tub. I am glad we opted for the warmer pool temperature: no one ever felt chilled.

Jayne, the house manager, greeted us on our arrival and came to clean the pool again during our stay. She was very pleasant and immediately responsive when the propane tanks became empty.

We went peach and berry picking a short distance away and gorged on the best store-bought pies we ever had from Cranes down the road. There was a dune buggy ride, a Critter Barn in Zeeland, free concerts in the parks, plus many other activities in addition to the beaches at Saugatuck and South Haven. The house and the area were excellent choices for us.

The bathrooms were all in excellent condition and pretty. There isn't one in the basement and the one off the kitchen is small so the master with the jacuzzi and walk-in shower was in great demand. It didn't matter at all.

The one negative would be the air circulation when the air conditioner is on.

The basement has no vents and is frigid, although we managed to play ping pong often and the children ran around a lot down there. There were blankets enough so that everyone was warm for sleeping.

The second floor, with 8 people couldn't be properly cooled. I closed all first floor vents, covered them to force the air upstairs and kept a large fan at the top of the stairs to bring up the cool air. There are also ceiling and portable fans. To keep the second floor cool enough for sleeping, the main floor had to be set at 69 degrees at all times. I couldn't not mention this but don't want it to be over-emphasized because this really is a lovely property and I would would not hesitate to use it again and to recommend it to our friends.

A wonderful choice!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at ALLEGAN ACRES! To make future stays for you and other guests even more comfortable, we are having a brand new energy-efficient 2-zone central air conditioning system installed. This new system will be ready to go by the spring of 2017 and will allow our guests to control the temperature upstairs and downstairs separately, and will cool the upstairs more efficiently. We hope to welcome you back to the property for another enjoyable stay soon!
