Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6


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.

You will feel right at home from the moment you walk in - whether it be from your special welcome gift to the many bathroom and toiletry amenities provided so you can relax and enjoy your stay.

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; a full-size baby crib is available upon request. 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 (using a provided mountain bike) to downtown Douglas or Saugatuck for dining, shopping, or boating. Douglas, Michigan is the proud recipient of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Distinctive Destination Award. Douglas is approximately 10 miles south of Holland, Michigan.

Why Brett Locascio chose Michigan

Some close friends of mine also own second homes in the Douglas and Saugatuck communities. With its beautiful beaches, terrific restaurants, and nearby entertainment, Douglas and Saugatuck is worlds away from Chicago!

Great property, great location, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

The house and the location were awesome. The details and system the owner has in place make everything simple and enjoyable. Everything was very clean and small touches show the owner has "put himself in the renter's shoes." I have no negatives to report; we had a great time and property just added to our contentment.

Ideal vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The location is ideal, and we woke up some mornings serenaded by the lake. We have visited with just the two of us and with our granddaughter, and it works well for both adults and kids. We love walking to the beach to swim or for sunset. The cottage is always immaculate, comfortable, and well equipped. We love to have breakfast on the patio and lunch on the screened porch. Once again, we spotted deer, and we love the peaceful feel of the neighborhood. You can't ask for better.

Charming describes this well

  • 5 of 5

My family (6 adults) stayed here for a long weekend and couldn't ask for anything better...other than the weather. But even with rain there was more than enough to do and the house was more than accomodating. We loved starting our day having coffee on the screened porch. We also enjoyed sitting out by the fire pit at night.

Grandparents Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were guests of my daughter her husband and two children, ages 8 & 5 at this charming cottage. It was immaculate upon arrival and had pretty and comfortable furnishings. We loved the location and privacy of the cottage that was still close enough to the beach to walk to and a short drive to the action in Douglas and Saugatuck. It has lovely flowers and is relaxing to sit on the porch and read, etc. We saw deer almost every day. It also was very well equipped. I would definitely recommend this as a place for a family vacation!!

Excellent classy and cozy comfort with easy access to every thing you would want!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage and its location was much more than what even the photos showed. It was perfect in every way and everything seemed new. Without a doubt this will be where we will stay when returning to the area. The owner was absolutely the best in regards to the entire renting process with very detailed information on use of the cottage so you had no worries about anything! We highly recommend the Hungry Village Tour with David Green and dining at the Salt of the Earth restaurant!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing cottage. We loved everything about this place. One block from Lake Michigan. We seen a number of deer having a snack. The beds are so comfortable. Everything we needed was at the cottage. The bikes are nice, even found tool for tightening handle bars. We will return to this little cottage. LOVE, LOVE!!!!!! So close to lots of things two great restaurants Big Dogs, and Every Day. Very close to Saugatuck. Very Clean and the decor is lovely with that cottage feel. We loved opening the screened in porch doors and in the morning sitting on the porch reading.
