Spacious Lakeshore Home with Fire Pit & Walk to Douglas Beach!

Bedrooms 4
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 11

Walk to Lake Michigan (Douglas Beach is just .2 miles away!) or switch gears and bike to downtown Saugatuck or Douglas. It’s easy to make the most of a West Michigan vacation when you stay at Switching Gears.

This bright and spacious vacation rental is great for family and friends gatherings. Prepare meals in the spacious kitchen, and then choose from any one of the scenic dining places throughout the house. The screened porch is a great spot to pair your morning coffee with some fresh Michigan air.

Kids will love the play area in the finished basement and roasting s’mores around the firepit in the backyard. With proximity to both the beach and in-town activities, guests of Switching Gears really get the best of both worlds.

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.

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