Spacious and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious and cozy. We had 11 people staying there for a wedding and everyone felt very comfortable and had their own space. There were plenty of areas to gather and we spent most of the time in the kitchen at the counter and the main room. The four bathrooms were perfect as we had all of us getting ready for the wedding at the same time. The bride even changed the plans from getting ready at the church to getting ready at the house because it better suited our needs. The property is very close to downtown which was very convenient for coffee runs, getting hair and nails done and checking the flowers at the church. It was a great place to come back to after each day of hectic wedding preparations.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We found this house to be warm and inviting. It was VERY clean and spacious. We had a great time in the town and shopping in Holland. Coming back to the house was always nice as it is very comfortable, well furnished and decorated. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a house to rent in Saugatuck. It is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. We loved it and will definitely be going back. plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms. Great for a single family or multiple families as the rooms and bathrooms are placed in a way that everyone has some privacy. It was GREAT!

Annual Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I have stayed at this property three times for our annual girls weekend. Our group is usually between 12 to 15 ladies. We love it! The layout and amenities are so nice for groups to gather for dinners or conversation. There is ample space for comfortable, private sleeping arrangements. The four bathrooms are nicely placed among the bedrooms so everyone has there own space. We also enjoy the screened porch and patio area which feels fairly private and includes a nice table and grill. The location is an easy walk to town, just 5 or 10 minutes. The owner is great too! I highly recommend this property for families, girls getaways, and any reunions or groups.

Great gathering place

  • 5 of 5

Our two families have vacationed several places over the past 15 years and now three of our nine children are married and living in three different states. We needed a place that could sleep us all and provide plenty of space to eat, play games and reconnect. We loved the two dining tables, one in the kitchen and one in the dining room just separated by a doorway for meals and games. The family room held a lot of us for visiting, and the pool table downstairs was a great addition. There were a few housekeeping details like there is anywhere, but we couldn't have been more satisfied with the layout of the house and how well it accommodated our families. We enjoyed an early evening walk to the little downtown, very charming as the Christmas lights in the trees came on and a few little shops were open for browsing. If we ever need to meet in southwest Michigan again, we will definitely consider this home (if we still fit!).

Awesome Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for the 9 of us! What a beautiful property, and so convenient to walking around Saugatuck. Plenty of room for dining and activities, everyone was very comfortable & said they slept like babies. I agree with others on the 3 butterfly chairs, not so comfy. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. Robin was great to work with. Thanks, we had a very memorable weekend and would love come back!
