Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. Great location with short walk to a private beach, short drive to Oval beach and downtown Saugatuck. The property itself was in perfect condition, both inside and out. We will definitely be returning, and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

First Class All The Way

  • 5 of 5

I thought the Lily was a perfect vacation get-away choice. Lovely decore and furniture, clean and comfortable rooms, modern kitchen and bath, beautiful garden - what's not to like? Conveniently located in Douglas, one block to Lake Michigan. This was our first visit to the Douglas/Saugatuck and we had a really fun time. Shopping, art galleries, Oval Beach fairly close, and some really nice restaurants. Particularly enjoyed Everyday People, Wild Dog Cafe, Phil's, Ida Red's and Uncommon Grounds. The property is currently listed for sale and if I wanted to be in the vacation home rental business, I would serious consider an investment.

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I greatly enjoyed this wonderful cottage. The proximity to Lake Michigan was greatly appreciated, beautiful sunsets! The drive to Oval Beach is very short, great beach for relaxing and enjoying the lake. The cottage is beautifully decorated, it has all the amenities one would like, the owner was great to work with, we loved the location. We would very much like to stay here again!

Beautiful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Lily and our daughter and her family at the Azalea. If the weather had cooperated it would have been a perfect vacation. Both units were beautiful as pictured. The gardens were beautiful and the children (4 of them) loved all the pathways between the two units. Anytime we were there we could usually see a little one coming down the path to our unit. The door was always unlocked for them. The beach is two blocks and a flight of stairs away. An easy walk. The littlest one usually in a stroller. The littlest one age 4 had no problem with the stairs. We had everything we needed and everything was in perfect condition. There was charcoal and lighter fluid had we decided to grill and laundry detergent provided. Both very helpful. I would definitely recommend these units to anyone with a family group. Children do need to be well behaved as it is a nice environment - no problem for our grandchildren. You are within a five minute drive to Douglas and Saugatuck and Oval Beach if you don't want to enjoy the basically private public beach two blocks away. We were running early on check in and were accommodated perfectly. Wonderful time in a beautiful place.
