Historic Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12 in beds)
Great vacation rental in best Saugatuck location! One of just a few private homes on the Oval Beach Road, this classic hundred-year-old cottage with guest house is nestled into the side of a wooded sand dune. In a great location surrounded by woods and walking trails, Oval Beach Cottage is steps from the Kalamazoo River, Saugatuck's chain ferry, and a 1/2 mile down the road from the beautiful Oval Beach.
Spread out over three floors, there are four bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the main house. A fabulous wrap-around screen porch offers tree-top views of the river and town of Saugatuck, and there is a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. A large living/dining area with a cozy wood burning stove makes this a great house for entertaining, and country antiques add to Oval Beach Cottage’s warmth and rustic charm.
Just up a wooded path is the guest house (Acorn), a cozy one-room log cabin that is perfect for two. Acorn has barn-beam cathedral ceilings, a fireplace, small kitchen and bath, and a deck high up in the tree-tops.
This is truly a delightful spot

We love this very special area of the country. The woods, the dunes, the beach, the river & ferry, the farms, the antique stores, farmer's markets, light houses, fog horns, great restaurants, art galleries and the historical charm. Great fishing too!
Mark purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Mark chose Saugatuck
Our family has owned cottages in Saugatuck for over 75 years! Wanted a classic summer cottage in a great location. We think ours is very special.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is hard to beat the location of this property. You can walk just a few steps to the Chain Ferry that crosses the Kalamozoo River and puts you in the heart of downtown Saugatuck (beats the parking woes!). Wooded walking trails, views of the sailboats coming down the river and super close to the beach! As the last house on Oval Beach Road, the beach is less than a 1/2 mile.

Cozy Tree House Cottage
We really enjoyed staying at the Oval Beach Cottage. Very well stocked for all our needs.
Close to everything. The chain ferry stopped in September, but the drive to town was not too long. We were not quite prepared for all the steps. There are a lot. Everything was very comfortable. A really nice cottage. It is a little dated, but very comfortable.
The property was very nice, large and clean.
We were more than happy with our experience there at the house near Kalamazoo lake, however, it was not exactly walking distance for someone who had six small children with them as it was on a main and busy road. I would say that was the only downfall was being on a busy street. I will not, the house was March, bedrooms are huge, the entire house was very clean and having things like dishes soap in a new sponge were nice and unexpected as We have taken many vacations where we had to purchase everything from laundry detergent to do so. Having those things they're made it very nice. The rules or expectations are clearly laid out and not hard to follow. We had a great time and made lots of memories In this awesome house. We hope to rent it again in the near future.
The property is exactly as described. This is a very old house, nestled in the trees, and therefore somewhat damp-especially on rainy days. There are lots of stairs and the floors are not level! We found it all to be quite charming! The location is perfect-close to both the beach and the shops, with lots of parking. The hot tub was a life saver on the non-beach days. The owner and manager were both very friendly and available. The kitchen is well stocked. The screened in porch was great for everyone and safe for the kids. We moved the porch table closer to the kitchen and found that very helpful both for eating and for noise control at night when we adults were playing cards! We had a fun week in spite of the weather!
We scheduled a Girl's Get-Away and were so happy with our choice! The location was perfect for walking to Oval Beach, taking the ferry to Saugatuck, and great for trips to neighboring Douglas and Holland. The house had everything we needed and the hot tub was an extra bonus! We hope to go back next summer!
