Oh my...

  • 5 of 5

Holy cow. You don't believe that there are places this nice that you will ever be allowed to enjoy. The photos don't do it justice. My wife, my twin, 6-yr-old daughters, and my elderly mother all had the privilege of staying at this lovely guest house on the owners' gorgeous property. There are so many little details: fountains; a small, babbling stream w/ several coy fish for feeding; several benches in the garden; dozens of pots of beautiful annual flowers, hand-potted by the owners' family one weekend in May; great birdwatching; a little kids' dream playcastle; a glorious, partially-screened wrap-around porch for dinners or just sunset-watching -- for which you have a clear, stunning view; a path directly to your own beach, several paddle boards, etc. for your use, 2 claw-foot tubs and 2 showers; unbelievably tasteful living room / dining room furniture; firm, comfortable beds in bedrooms with views of the lake ... the list goes on and on. I've rented many, many such places in my life, and, well ... with any luck, I'll never have to search again, because you just can't do any better.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this beautiful beachfront property for two years in a row and loved every minute. The setting of this charming cottage is so calm and serene that you become instantly relaxed. The inside of the cottage is spotless and the rooms are generously sized. The view from the back porch is priceless-love those sunsets! The access to the beach is convenient too! This amazing house has it all.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

This home is immaculate and only steps from a wonderful beach. It is truly a gem. Our children had a ball playing on the playset and at the beach. The bedrooms are spacious and airy, and the waves lulled us to sleep each night. There is a wonderful screened-in porch overlooking the lake. Everything you could want is right here!

Outstanding property on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

OUTSTANDING! Everything about this property is outstanding-the gorgeous home, breathtaking gardens, picture perfect view of Lake Michigan beach, and the phenomenal owners. If you have children there is an amazing playset. The beach is beautiful and the covered screened porch is the perfect place for a morning coffee while watching the waves. The interior of the home is decorated just perfect and has all the necessities. The house is in the most perfect location-quick drive to Saugatuck, Douglas, Holland, even South Haven. The home owners are good honest people that you can trust. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to return!
