About Bonnie & Ron Wilkins

This picture is Ron & I at the top of Mt. Baldhead, a high dune in Saugatuck. Yes, we climbed all 282 steps to this deck on the top. Lake Kalamazoo is in the background. Great view. Lake Michigan is just west of Mt. Baldhead.

Ron & I ran Wilkins Hardware Co., a unique hardware store with exceptional customer service, old-fashioned friendliness, and modern convenience and selection in the entire ground floor of the building. We made our home on the second floor, raising our 3 kids. Now we share this wonderful space with you, our guests. Welcome, and enjoy.

Bonnie & Ron Wilkins purchased this apartment in 1985

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great 2 days. We thought the loft was lovely and beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed the location as we love to walk everywhere (15 miles on Friday!)

We come to Saugatuck area every summer and this was very enjoyable!

Great location! Quaint and filled with Saugatuck history.

  • 4 of 5

The location downtown was perfect, with easy parking. Could walk everywhere from the loft. Plenty of space for two people, but could definitely accommodate more guests! Cool interior, with lots of history. Overall, a great stay, but could use a deeper cleaning and possibly carpets cleaned.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the spaciousness and history of the hardware loft, and the proximity to all the attractions of downtown Saugatuck without the all the noise. Although we just had the apartment deep cleaned and the carpets serviced, and improve features of the apartment every year, we will attend to factors that give the impression that the apartment could be cleaner. Our guest's comfort is of paramount importance to us.

Great in-town location within walking distance of everything!

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our group of 5 adults. Space to relax as a group plus two bathrooms with showers. Good location right on Butler, an easy walk to everything. Lots of charm.

Unique!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice loft apartment, but could use a bit of TLC. (Couch, sofa/bed, bottom step to upstairs is loose, upstairs carpet loose) It is such a unique place in a great location, with ample parking! Just know you're not getting new when you book here. We would return, given the chance!

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Hardware Store Loft, plenty of space for our family of four, all possible amenities included, and absolutely perfect location. It started snowing almost immediately when we got to Saugatuck and didn't stop for more than 20 minutes of so at a time for the better part of two days, yet everything in town was walkable from the location. We commented several times that we picked the perfect spot, because even if we got totally snowed in, we had an ideal spot to be stuck because the loft was so fabulous and spacious. Overall a great stay!

For more than 100 years, tourists have sought refuge from the stress of everyday life in the Saugatuck/ Douglas area - a peaceful place where no one rushes and no one rushes you. They can mellow out in surroundings reminiscent of vintage, small-town America, whose hallmarks are scenic beauty and a unique collection of shops, restaurants and art galleries. For those who want to mix relaxation with excitement, the area offers a year-round calendar of fun-filled activities and events. No wonder the National Trust for Historical Preservation designated these towns as one of the nation's Dozen Distinctive Destinations!

The two towns, nestled among towering sand dunes, are bordered by the winding Kalamazoo River on its way to Lake Michigan. Activities abound on the two waterways. Both towns maintain public beaches on Lake Michigan for swimmers and sunbathers. Saugatuck's Oval Beach has been rated by Condé Nast's Traveler Magazine as one of the 25 best shorelines in the world and one of America's 11 great Beachtowns. National Geographic Traveler Magazine agreed, rating it one of the top two freshwater beaches in America. More recently, the Chicago Tribune ranked it number one out of the Midwest's five best beaches and Life Magazine judged it Best Dune Town.

In addition to finding unique clothing and accessories for your self and for gifts, and seeing a kaleidoscopic of artwork in the galleries, we love to hike the dunes in Saugatuck Dunes State Park and Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area. We also enjoy touring the winery, farms and studios in next door harvest country. Kids enjoy sifting in the sand searching for stones & shells, including lucky stones. For more info, check out the Lucky Stone Tavern within Saugatuck Brewing Co.
