6BR, 2FB/1HB, sleeps 11, New Kitchen '16, New Bathrooms, AC, Private Beach, Deck

Get away from it all at this private, classic farmhouse near Saugatuck/Douglas. Just two hours from Chicago, perfect for multi-family vacations. Enjoy relaxing on the beach (access across road) or walking on the 2+ miles of nature trails in the 75-acre dedicated ravine trust directly behind the house. This historic home was originally modeled after Abraham Lincoln’s home in Springfield, Illinois, and is undergoing a full renovation of the kitchen for the 2016 summer season. The newly designed kitchen will feature all-new stainless steel appliances, new lighting, flooring, and windows, a cozy gas fireplace, and a newly installed central air system.

Gracious historic home in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this historic home enjoying easy access to the beach and exploring the beautiful miles of trails behind the home. The house itself was clean, spacious and allowed our large group to spread out, with a large bedroom with a number of beds serving perfectly as a kids room. The house has updated bathrooms on the first floor but generally will appeal most to those looking for the character and charm of a family home that has passed down through the generations. Think tennis trophies, Dartmouth pennants and Adirondack chairs. The kitchen is fully functional and comfortable if a bit dated in style. The owner is responsive and gracious. We hope to return!

Wonderful, historic home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful and interesting home for out-of-town guests for a funeral and could not have been happier with the home and location and owner! The Pier Cove area on Lake Michigan is very quaint and secluded and the large, adjacent nature preserve and private beach were great to explore and hang out. History, beach, nature, tennis - excellent!

Owners Response

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for your kind review. We have made a number of upgrades to the property since then. The musty odor has been eliminated with the removal of many old books and a full clean up in the basement. We have added three new portable a/c units which keep the kitchen and upstairs bedrooms cool in hot weather. There is a new 56' flat screen hd tv in the kitchen and Wi-Fi internet connection throughout the house. It is an ideal house for families with kids of all ages.

Nice Rental

  • 4 of 5

Rented house for a family reunion and we really enjoyed the house and grounds. Was directly across the street from Lake Michigan beach and had well-maintained walking trails behind the house. Owner provided croquet set for use on the grounds and tennis/basketball court was nice to have as well. There were plenty of linens, pots, pans, etc.

Owner was very nice - he promptly returned deposit and called during stay to make sure there were no issues.

Only real downside to house was that it was quite musty when we first entered until we had a chance to air it out.
