Nestled at the end of a private street in a wooded surrounding, but only 2 blocks from downtown Douglas is the setting for this perfect vacation getaway. The home was custom built to resemble the 4-Square style homes of the early 1900's and was constructed with quality materials and features custom millwork and 9 foot ceilings throughout. The home has an open floor plan ideal which is ideal for entertaining. An in-ground pool, gourmet kitchen, screened-in porch, and 2 living spaces provide ample space for family or friends to gather together.

This room has 4 twin beds each situated in their own nook. The fifth bedroom is very large and is located in the lower level of the home.

Seven friends and I rented this property for a week between Christmas and New Year's. Even in the winter, this is a fantastic vacation rental. In addition to being a tastefully decorated and well maintained home, it includes many of the details that you expect in a private residence. This includes a first floor sound system, dimmer switches everywhere, ample towels and bathrooms stocked with toiletries. The house also has one of the best stocked kitchens I have seen in a rental. We always bring extra kitchen equipment and we rarely needed anything from our personal stash of glassware, servers, cooking utensils, etc.
Lovely place, lovely weekend!
White Pines is lovely! It was a perfect weekend for me and my family. The decor is perfect, the kitchen has everything you need, and the bedrooms were cozy. It's warm and comfortable place with all the amenities. We had a fantastic weekend!
Impressed from the moment Iwalked in
Large beautiful property that accommodates large or small groups with excellent flow, areas everyone could be all together but not huddled plus many areas where you could relax alone. High quality kitchen with every gadget possibe . Lots of light, high ceilings and spotless. Location perfect. A lot of thought went into this home.
Great Family House to Enjoy Western Michigan
We had 12 people across 3 generations spend a week at White Pines and everyone had a wonderful time. The house is a great set-up and more than enough room for the large group. The large kitchen table allowed for use to share meals together. The screened in porch was perfect for conversations and playing games. Everyone loved the pool area. The water was a perfect temperature and just the right size. White Pines is a great location to enjoy Saugatuck/Douglas, but to also enjoy Holland and South Haven. Thanks for allowing us to spend a fun week in Douglas.
Our stay at White Pines
White Pines is a fantastic house. Our entire family, 6 adults and 3 children, had a wonderful time. Steve is so easy and gracious to work with and has thought of everything when it comes to stocking the house. Everything you could possibly need is there. It is clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and so relaxing. The kids loved the beautiful pool as did the adults. The location is unbelievable. The house is almost downtown Douglas and it's just a short drive to so many activities and sights. Great restaurants in Douglas!!! Can't say enough about White Pines and want to thank Steve for giving us the opportunity to enjoy a week there. Our family loved every moment and definitely want to return. Thanks Steve!!!!
This home is by far the best we have ever rented. Our family was so impressed to be in a home where we felt so pampered-as if we were in a luxurious resort, yet still extremely comfortable. Steve has thought of everything. High-end linens, darling matching beach towels, fully stocked kitchen including great small appliances, and stylish comfortable furniture. The home was spotless and the layout worked so well for our three families. We lived on the darling screened in porch and the kids loved the pool. Location couldn't be beat as well. A block from mainstream Douglas lined with great restaurants, shops and art galleries. We will definitely be back. Thank you Steve!
This wonderful home is tucked away on a private street in downtown Douglas, MI and is only 2 blocks from the center of this charming town. One can easily walk to the many unique shops, galleries, restaurants, grocery store and even the cool bowling alley just down the street - In fact, you don't even need a car!. There are two amazing public beaches in town which are only a short drive away. The Douglas beach is exactly one mile due west and the famous Saugatuck/Oval beach is a short 1.5 mile drive. If you're on that vacation mode and not up for driving there, the Saugatuck/Douglas Inter Urban bus will take you to the beach for a buck!
