Overview

Saugatuck Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Are you looking for a great, affordable get away? Garry's Cottage is the perfect place for your family/friend getaway year round. Located in beautiful Saugatuck, Michigan, with it's sandy dunes and nature's beauty. We are part of Saugatuck's GOSHORN LAKE FAMILY RESORT WITH A POOL AND PRIVATE BEACH! Our beach on Goshorn Lake is just a short 750 ft. stroll. Our outdoor heated pool is even closer than that!

Located less than 2 miles from downtown, you can do what your heart desires. From walking, biking on the new bike path, swimming in the pool or private beach, browsing the shops of Saugatuck or Douglas, golfing, trying a new restaurant, taking time out on a short cruise on the Star of Saugatuck, seeking the thrill of a Dune Ride, sitting at a bon-fire, hiking up Mt. Baldhead, taking in a beautiful sunset on the sandy shores of Oval Beach, tapping into the athlete in you, enjoying a cozy fire in the gas log fireplace to just reading and relaxing. The possibilities are endless!

Much updating has recently been done. We have added a 400 sf family room with a big screen TV. The BEST thing about this room is not only that all 11 of you can be out there comfortably at one time, but that you can put the kids to bed and retreat to this front room without them hearing you.

You will find MANY extras at this cottage. Relax in Garry's 6-person outdoor hot-tub just feet from the back door, ride one of the many bikes in Garry's shed, sit at your own bonfire in the backyard or at the community fire pit on the beach, participate in an outdoor game, or just hang out on the picnic table while waiting for the charcoal in the barbecue grill. If it is raining, search the high speed internet right there in Garry's Cottage, watch TV (Dishnet) or a family DVD, play a board game, read a book, all of which are provided for you.

About Debbie

We purchased Garry's Cottage in the Spring of 2007. We fell in love with the beauty of the sandy dunes, the big shady trees, the private beach on Goshorn Lake and the quiet, out of the way setting that Goshorn Lake Resort provides. We love that we are 'off the beaten path' but close to everything. Choosing Saugatuck for it's school system, we moved here in September 2007, living in the cottage during the school year and renting it out from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The dynamics of our family has changed and so has the place we call 'home'. We are happy to now offer Garry's Cottage Year Round so that you, too, can enjoy the beauty of the four seasons. We looking forward to having you make memories at Goshorn Lake in Garry's Cottage. Brian and Debbie

Debbie purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Debbie chose Michigan

Saugatuck is close enough to everything, and yet off the beaten path enough for you to find peace and relaxation that will help you forget the stress of everyday life. Saugatuck has so much to offer, from it's sandy beaches of Lake Michigan to it's quaint shops downtown. From it's art Galleries to it's fine and family dining. There is always something GREAT happening in Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan. There is the Waterfront film festival in June, the Venetian Weekend Fireworks in July, the Taste of Saugatuck in August, the Mt Baldhead Challenge in September, the Fall Fun Fest and Halloween Parade and Festival in October, Tree Lighting Ceremony in November along with Horse-drawn carriage rides and Sensational Saturdays through December, Kicking off the New Year with New Year's Eve Fireworks.

What makes this cottage unique

This very family friendly two-story cottage, with it's 400 sf family room, gives you space where all of you can hang out together. The back yard picnic table, fire pit and hot tub are all other ways that you can be together, enjoying one anothers company. There is a shed in the backyard filled with bicycles of different sizes, outdoor games, tennis rackets and hot dog forks. In the house you will find shelves filled with games and puzzles, books for all ages, and a wide selection of family friendly DVDs. Because Garry's Cottage is a part of the Goshorn Lake Resort, you have access to the private beach on Goshorn Lake (the kayaks, the canoes, the rowboats, fishing dock), the outdoor heated pool, shuffle board, beach volleyball, swing set, horse shoe pit, and the list goes on.

Best place in the area to stay. The owner is super to work with . We have been going to this resort for approx 35 years. The improvements that have been made over the years has made this place absolutely my favorite rental location. There is something for everyone and every age. Myself and the group of girls that I go with look forward to this weekend every year. Between the wonderful owner, cleanliness, and everything the resort has to offer we can't i manage going anywhere else.

Always Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Garrys has been a retreat for myself and friends for four years. The cottage is perfect for varied sizes of groups, every amenity you could need is provided for. There's so much to do, cruise on bikes( courtesy of Garrys), head down to the beach for kayaking or canoeing, bonfires, hot tubbing, you name it. The best part of Garrys is the personal touch the owner provides. Every year there's a handwritten card,a gretting basket and she's always available to answer any questions. This place is perfect.
