About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16

Highlights: Newer LARGE home in Saugatuck with over 4,500 square feet of living space; 5-minute walk from Downtown Saugatuck and a short drive to Oval beach. We personally use the house multiple times a year and take great care of it. Features modern furnishings, while maintaining a comfortable, cozy feel consistent with the character of the house. Perfect for a single family that enjoys to spread out, multi-generation families with kids, groups of friends or a reunion. Features a large living room, well-appointed kitchen, multiple lounging areas, large dining table that seats 12, and plenty of outdoor space. FAST internet service and HD cable with DVR and HBO are included.

The ground floor has a well-appointed kitchen including double ovens, side-by-side refrigerator, a new Bosch dishwasher, and microwave. There is a new Weber gas grille and bullet smoker just outside. The owners are aspiring chefs, so you will find high quality and sharp knives, cookware, utensils, and small appliances, including Sous Vide Supreme, drip coffee maker, toaster, Vitamix, and Japanese rice cooker. There is plenty of counter space to prepare meals for large groups. The kitchen island is often used as a breakfast bar with seating for four. If you brought a LOT of food with you, don't worry, there is also a second refrigerator in the garage.

The dining area can seat 12 on the farmhouse table, plus 5 on the nearby kitchen island, great for big family meals. The living room has a full entertainment system, with 60” flat screen, HD Cable with DVR, TiVo, DVD, HBO, and a stereo system where you can plug in your phone. There is also a seating area with two comfortable club chairs by the indoor, gas fireplace.

The upstairs has four bedrooms and a lounge area with a pull-out sofa bed. Bedrooms upstairs include a Master Suite and three additional bedrooms – see the pictures for detailed bedroom configuration; the sleeping arrangements are very flexible.

The basement, which has plenty of natural light, has a large family gathering area with 55” flat screen and cable TV (with HBO), game room with Ping-Pong table, and an en-suite bedroom with queen bed. A sixth bedroom with a queen bed and private toilet room and sink is located above the garage.

This house offers indoor parking for two vehicles, and space outside for four additional vehicles.

Several outdoor areas: a screened in porch, with a round dining table - great for breakfast and happy hour - and comfortable sectional couch adjacent to the living/dining room; an area with several rocking chairs in front of the outdoor fireplace; in addition, there is a nice yard that is adjacent to a wide open grass softball field, with basketball, and tennis courts steps away.

About Alex D.

We live in in Chicago, and have been going to Saugatuck each summer for the past several years, really enjoy what Saugatuck can offer year-around. We are a family of five, with three kids 7 and under. Our parents like to come along and also we like to spend time with other families.

Why Alex D. chose Saugatuck

One of the main questions we had was if we wanted to be in town or on the beach. When we came to Saugatuck, we found that we would go to the beach 3-5 times a week, depending on weather, but we would come into town multiple times a day, so the decision was easy. The property is in a great location - quiet neighborhood yet a short walk to town. Also we wanted a place that could fit 2-3 families with multiple kids each, plus one or two sets of parents, or a nanny.

What makes this house unique

The 4,500 SF house accommodates several groups and allows privacy as well as shared space. It is much newer than the vast majority of homes available in Saugatuck; and it is configured with 4 desks and premium internet service for those folks that can't stay unplugged from work for too long.

Saugatuck Soggy Weekend

  • 5 of 5

It was a very wet weekend so we stayed at the house most of the time. There was plenty of room for everyone. It was really a perfect and simply beautiful place for our group. Hope we can visit again!

Comfortable, elegant home . . . well appointed and equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The home couldn't have suited our group of six couple better. The kitchen is particularly well appointed, the location is great for walking & biking. The kitchen and dining room is large and well suited for group meals around the table. The second refrigerator is the garage was useful and the screened-in porch was a great gathering spot on warm afternoons.

Wonderful, large, well equiped house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven adults and two children under four had a wonderful time in early September 2017. The house was immaculate, and it became almost a game to try and figure out what the house did not come with – it was extremely well equipped! Oh how I loved the Weber grill! We had plenty of space to spread out, and took full advantage of the basement – shouldn’t EVERY rental house come with a ping pong table? :-) The location is great – leisurely 15-20 minute walk to get to the heart of town and all it offers. The only complaint we had – it may be just fine for some, but the master bed was very soft. Just a comment (we simply didn’t realize this from the photos and description) - the only two TV’s are in the family room and basement. The house is in a wonderfully quiet and well maintained neighborhood. Thank you so much for opening your doors to our family!

Very well appointed home. Has everything you need to entertain.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Parents could walk to town while kids played in park next door. Decorating was very well done. It feels like home. Couldn't have been happier with the choice.

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house with a ton of space. There were 14 of us (7 adults, 7 children) and we had plenty of room. Spacious kitchen, dining, bedrooms and living areas. Used the outdoor fireplace and there was plenty of firewood. Close to downtown Saugatuck and about a ten minute drive to Oval Beach. Highly recommend!
