About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 11

Spacious and bright, this newly refreshed 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath home located in popular, 'Felkers' neighborhood is ideal for families and friends alike with its great outdoor space and proximity to both town and beach. Come 'switch gears' and enjoy this beautiful vacation home indoors and out!

The main floor contains a bright Kitchen with fresh coat of paint and all the amenities needed to cook wonderful meals. Family and friends can enjoy these meals at the Kitchen counter (3 barstools), at the dining table (seating for 7) or on the attached screened in porch directly off of the Dining Area (seating for 4)! One of the highlights of this home is the incredible Living Room with vaulted ceilings and skylights, a wood fireplace, all new furniture, and an entertainment center complete with a new, 48'' Flat screen TV, surround sound, and full connectivity (Wi-Fi and Cable). A Guest Bedroom with a Queen bed and a full Guest Bathroom (with a shower/tub combo) round out the spacious first floor.

Enjoy the lookout over the main floor Living Area on your way up to the remodeled 2nd floor where you'll find the Kids Room complete with a Bunk Bed and separate Twin, a 3/4 Bathroom with a shower (dual shower heads), and the Master Bedroom with a Queen bed and walk-out balcony. Venture downstairs for even more flexible bedding arrangements where you'll find a Guest Room with a Queen bed and 2 additional Twin beds in the Daybed and pull-out Trundle. The Lower Level also has a 3/4 Bathroom with a shower and a spacious play room with comfy couches and a new 52'' flat screen HDTV.

Step out onto the expansive wraparound porch to enjoy the outdoors and sit around the fire pit off of the large, flagstone patio. With the famous, sugar sand beaches of Lake Michigan so close (Douglas Beach only .2 miles away!), you can lay out, enjoy the waves and/or watch the boats go by to your heart's content. Upon returning from the beach, be sure to wash off in the brand new outdoor shower right off the back porch! However you choose to enjoy it, this home's wonderful outdoor space has something for everyone!

Enjoy shopping, dining, and galleries in both downtown Douglas (1 mile) and downtown Saugatuck (2 miles), which are only a quick, 3-5 minute car ride away. Or, take the drive down Blue Star Highway to enjoy fresh fruit orchards, multiple wineries, and gorgeous scenery. Better yet, 'switch gears' and take a scenic bike ride to wherever you want to go!!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a last minute rental along the lakeshore in Saugatuck/Douglas area and had inquired on a house via the website. That one ended up not working out, but Ashley sent me additional properties that fit my criteria and this house was perfect for our families' needs. It's just two blocks to the beach and sits in a quiet neighborhood. We had three floors to sprawl out and the screened porch was a welcomed bonus. We spent a good portion of the rainy days on the porch. Everything else in the house was clean and well-maintained, and gave us some good ideas for the design of our new home. The check-in/out process was super easy and I will definitely book again with lakeshore lodging.

Great property.

Had a pleasant family stay..... child-friendly--grandkids loved the swing and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Very clean and well equipped.
