About the property

Simply Stellar for Any Season, Any Group Size (up to 10) and Every Age!

Whether you’re a family of 4, a group of 10 or somewhere in-between, the house by Hutchins lake has everything you need to feel right at home and happy to be away, with a room with a view and space to play for everyone, whatever your age! Both upstairs and downstairs have their own entertainment system as well as books, toys and plenty of kid-friendly movies.

Our newly remodeled kitchen lets you cook as much, or as little as you’d like, and includes a new dishwasher to finish the clean up while you soak in the hot tub.

Both upstairs bedrooms have a deck and a view and a queen size bed. Master bedroom also has ½ bath attached. Upstairs, a newly renovated full bathroom with shower has a dual sink for extra convenience. Downstairs you’ll find another guest bedroom with a queen-sized bed as well as 4 charming twin-size built-in bunk beds and another deck off the recreation area.

Ready for a taste of summer? Head out for some peach and berry-picking (you’ll find the perfect orchard right down the road) before you come back and fire up the barbeque.

Now that the warm weather is almost here, Hutchins Lake is an endless source of summer fun. Spend the day kayaking and splashing, then star gaze on the pier with a bonfire in the fire pit completing the scene.

The private pier is perfect for lounging with your toes in the water, fishing, swimming and boating. There is a 2 person sit on top kayak available for guest use, as well as lots of great lake toys and rafts. There’s even a boat launch nearby if you have your own.

Craving a little more lake? Lake Michigan is a 10 minute drive away. Spend a day playing in the sand, then come back and rinse off in the outdoor shower.

About The Owner

I bought this house after falling in love with Lake Hutchins. My 8 year old son just loves to play on this lake and so do I!

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Southwest Michigan

This house has all the benefits of being right on the lake with a view and a private pier, without the expense of actually being right on the lake. It is the best of both worlds!

What makes this house unique

The location of this house is perfect because it is quiet and away from all of the business of Saugatuck, yet if you want to experience what that has to offer you're only minutes away from it, as well as some beautiful Lake Michigan beaches. You have the beauty and recreation of a smaller lake that is spring fed with a sand bottom and easy to swim in by Memorial day!

Guestbook comments from the owner

his house is located on Hutchins Lake, just 10 minutes from Lake Michigan. I liked this little lake so much that I nearly forgot about the big one. The house is great and comes equipped with every amenity. The kitchen and bathroom are both newly remodeled, and the kitchen is outfitted with everything you need if you like to cook. The back porch faces the lake and is a great place to hang out and relax. It's advertised as a 3-br, but there's also an additional room full of bunkbeds and bean bag chairs, perfect for youngsters. We had a blast here. Strongly recommend.

Great long family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. House was very clean, nicely decorated and modern. Beautiful location on a quiet street. Short walk to lovely Hutchins lake. My husband and son caught quite a few fish on the lake. Chris was very helpful and quick to respond to my questions. Hot tub was a nice treat with the fall weather. Everything we needed was included. Bath towels, beach towels, all kitchen utensils, fast wifi, and Netflix for the kids. Also had a great selection of kids movies to stream in the downstairs bunk room which was very cute and a fun place for my boys to sleep. It was pet friendly and we were able to bring our dog. I'm very pleased with everything about our stay and would highly recommend this rental. This house is also close to Cranes orchard and pie pantry which is one of our favorite places for apple picking and eating. I can imagine the lake is even more fun in the summer. We will return! Thanks Chris for sharing your house with us.

Lovely lake-access perfect for a reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at this lovely cottage. It had plenty of space for the adults and children and the hot-tub was loved by all. The cottage was neat and tidy and provided all the amenities a family needs. It was perfect for a week of lake fun and exploring Saugatuck/Douglas and the dunes.

A wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, spacious, and provided everything we needed to be comfortable and accommodated for a week long stay. The hot tub was great and very reliable, the bed was comfortable, and the the house was well-equipped with lots of seasonally appropriate outdoor gear, even for Winter. The owner was very attentive to our needs and quick to respond the couple of times we needed to consult her. We vacationed there during the Winter, and a very big storm came through. We were happy to be snowed in because the house provided everything we needed to relax and have fun without even leaving! The hot tub, sledding in the backyard, a hike by the lake, and the house indoors itself were so enjoyable. Thank you for the hospitality, and we definitely recommend!

Amazing place for a group of 10!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this rental as 10 woman to celebrate my sisters 50th bday. It was a great spot and beautiful scenery! The hot tub was nice. The very few issues we had were dealt with very promptly even late at night without it being a big deal. Beautiful home and great owner who is on it answering any questions. The only downfall was lack of parking but we made it work!!! I would definetly rent here again!

We were on a "retreat" weekend. There were 7 women and we slept very comfortably!! We did not leave the house the entire weekend. The house is clean and well stocked. The location is so relaxing....

The Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW!

Chris was the most gracious host, responding to all my silly questions within an hour. She always had an answer and would make sure we didn't need help with anything else.

When we got to the house, it was perfect. We were a group of four re-uniting friends who haven't seen each other in ages. It had everything we needed! Every size pot, pan, baking sheet, utensil, BOTTLE OPENER, and serving spoon we needed. Even ziplocks, paper towels, and garbage bags to boot!

The home has a rustic feel but with very nice, modern appliances. During the day, we would play card games, share stories, and just enjoy each others company while the wood stove roared in the background. The hot tub was a great place to relax and wind down before bed. This home has PLENTY of sleeping options.

The area is nice. A quiet neighborhood just minutes from town. We only explored the local grocery store, but the selection was plentiful and the people were friendly. The surrounding neighbors were also incredibly friendly.

We had a great time and hope to reconnect again at this same location soon. Maybe even a summer trip! Would DEFINITELY recommend.
