Beautiful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 ladies just recently stay their for my soon-to- be sister in laws bachelorette party. The house was huge, clean, and so accommodating. Plenty of sleeping room, and the 3 bathrooms were great!! Most of us enjoyed the enclosed room outdoor room for coffee and breakfast. The location is perfect, nice neighborhood and walking distance to downtown.

I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family, and hope to stay again!!!

Perfect gathering for multi-generational families

  • 5 of 5

This house was the ideal setting for our family gathering. Being near the football and baseball fields was great for my sons and nephews, who also loved being close to the bike path. We enjoyed being a few blocks away from the restaurants and stores so we rarely needed to drive, except to Oval Beach. The house, especially a 1st floor master bedroom, was great for my father, who was unable to do many steps. The kids loved the finished basement with bunk beds and a pool table. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and we appreciated having 2 large tables (kitchen and dining room) for family dinners. Our favorite setting though was probably the screened-in porch where we spent a great deal of time. Finally, the owner was a delight to work with and was quite accommodating.

Best Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our family reunion and had the best time. I cant say more nice things about the house and our host Robin. Robin answered all our questions and was very prompt in replies. The house is spacious and had everything we need to make our stay very comfortable. Our family spent time cooking, hanging out in the many areas of the house, playing in the front and back yard. The house is kid friendly and had some games in the garage. Thank you! Saugatuck itself is a beautiful little town. The house is walking distance from downtown where you can see the boats, get ice cream and hike up the steps to Mt. Bauldhead. We all had an amazing time and I would definitely recommend this place to stay if you have a big group and want to stay close to town. Thank you Robin for making our trip so memorable!

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so comfortable and spacious, perfect for the 4 families that stayed here over the weekend. Great eat-in kitchen, spacious living room to hangout in, the kids loved spending time in the basement and sleeping on the bunk beds! The back and front yards were also great to run around in! And beautiful too to relax in. All this was just a short walk to Saugatuck! Would definitely stay here again!

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!
