Saugatuck Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Guest House:

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

About Mark

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 Michigan

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.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

What a fall getaway we just had. We drove up from Chicago (only 2.5 hours) for a long weekend. The house could not be more cozy or in a better location. We absolutely love Saugatuck. The staff was so nice & amazingly helpful. We will be back.

Charming Cottage with a a lot of Character and a Fabulous Porch!

  • 5 of 5

It was a quick getaway girls trip! The cottage was decorated in a comfortable family friendly way. All our needs were taken care of, from sitting on the huge screened wrap around porch having our morning coffee to the evening with cocktails. Nature was all around us and a view of the water...perfect setting! We chilled out in the evening hanging out in the large comfortable great room with a puzzle and drinks...very relaxing. Mark, the owner and Jeff, the caretaker were awesome to work with. I highly recommend the property for a family or girls get away or whatever!

Classic Cottage vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is NOT your average rental: We LOVED this cottage -- plenty of room for a crowd (we came with five in family plus 3 cousins) -- and walked to the beach and the ferry (1/2 block) to town for great restaurants and lots of ice cream -- but most of all loved a step back in time in this classic cottage in the trees -- surrounded by green treetop and river views from the huge screened porch. The hot tub was the best -- and the cute kitchen comes beautifully equipped (except I couldn't find the carrot peeler). Charming decor and lovely linens and very clean. Happy happy memories and much laughter and fun here. We WILL return!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family including 10 people ages 9-50 had a wonderful time at the Cottage and in Saugatauk. The location was perfect to access the public beach and to enjoy ice cream nightly in town. The accommodations allowed plenty of room for our family to gather for family meals on the wrap around porch or to break off for some private time. Our teenagers/young adults loved having the hot tub to relax in during the evenings after we would watch the sunset on the beach. The kitchen was well stocked. The gas grill was perfect for preparing our freshly caught fish. Our only 2 disappointments were lack of wash cloths and the small size of the shower in the Acorn Cabin. The stairs were numerous and steep which did not prove to be a challenge for our family members who were on this vacation but would be a consideration if older family members were to join us in the future. Overall we had a wonderful time and would recommend your home to future vacationing families.

Owner's Response: Hi Lynette, It was a pleasure to have you and your family a few weeks ago. What a great group you had. All smiles & laughter. Thank you for the kind review. I promise to have more wash clothes next time & we hope to expand Acorn's bathroom before you return. Cheers, Mark

Fun family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Have been coming to your cottage every summer with my family and enjoy it more and more each year. I loved the bunk room & bathroom renovations. We had a stellar, family card game tournament on the beautiful porch nestled in the trees. My kids especially love the hot tub and close proximity to the ferry. This home is so inviting and cozy - can't wait until next year!
