New in 2017! Our cottage has been updated and transformed with new colors, decor and added charm!

Charming single-family home vacation rental on cul-de-sac in Douglas, located at 3060 Park Drive, south off Center Street. With a short walk to the Douglas Public Beach on Lake Michigan, you will not be disappointed when you arrive to relax in this lovely home.

With 1300 square feet of living space you definitely will not feel cramped. The Pottery Barn furnishings complemented by personally chosen antiques abound throughout this professionally decorated home. See why this property is fully booked every Summer season!

Main Living Area: The Living Room area opens onto a screened porch that runs the length of the home. Enjoy relaxing on the porch, with its wicker love seat, chairs, tables and reading lamp. Abounding with light from the 3 sets of French Doors, the front living area feels open and peaceful, bringing the outdoors inside (don't be surprised if you see a family of deer outside the front porch).

Second Floor Living Area: On the 2nd level, there are 2 additional bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The second bedroom has 1 queen bed with plenty of closet space. The third bedroom, nick-named the 'Cowboy Room' contains 2 twin beds. Both bedrooms are bright and charming. The 2nd floor full bath is large and spacious.

Area Info: You'll love the location of this home, within walking distance of Lake Shore Drive where you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and the lovely Douglas public beach (0.4 miles). It's only a short drive or an easy bike ride to downtown Douglas or Saugatuck for dining, shopping, or boating.

Beautiful love embrace of a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Entering this lovely cottage is like walking into a warm hug. It is perfect without being catalog. Cozy and laid out so well. I fell in love with the look of it when I saw the pics online, and then even more when I spent time there. My only disappointment: that my two married daughters and I couldn't stay longer! Thanks for making a perfect nest for those in search of a respite. Also, Brett was very helpful all along...even when we couldn't get the fireplace to work after someone pressed that red button on the remote - it WASN'T US!!! He talked us through it and we were happy campers all weekend. I would return in a heartbeat.

Very pleasant and comfortable with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage in a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees and paths to Lake Michigan. Very quiet. We were delighted to see several deer walking along the street in the morning. It's within 5 or 10 driving minutes of restaurants and shops.

Owner is exceptionally responsive and helpful, always answering our e-mail inquiries within minutes. We will definitely return!

Perfect fall getaway cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Halloween weekend having a fall getaway to visit with family. The home was perfect for our family getaway. Instructions for arrival were clear and easy, and everything was as described in the online profile for the home. The cottage is cute and charming and well maintained. We needed for nothing while there, as the kitchen is well appointed for making meals with the family, and the amenities provided for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend this western Michigan getaway!

Girls’ Weekend

This is a darling cottage on a quiet little street. We loved the screened in front porch and cute back area. We left lots of laughter to reverberate for the next folks! Thank you!

Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage with all the amenities we needed. Excellent decor, clean, and quiet location. We enjoyed walking to Douglas Beach and the short drive to Oval Beach. Loved the charm, food, and shopping in both Saugatuck and Douglas.
