About Teri Dougherty

Owners are brother and sister and their spouses. We live in Omaha, Nebraska where we were raised. We love the area and wanted to buy a place that was in superb condition to share with others and to use periodically by our families.

Teri Dougherty purchased this house in 2012

Why Teri Dougherty chose Southwest Michigan

We have vacationed in the area several times over the last few years visiting our brother. We fell in love with the area and the people. The beauty of the area, the peacefulness and the many things to do made us want to have a place we could call our own and share with others. This home's location and its unbelievably perfect condition made it an easy choice. It is surrounded by lush landscaping and forest. It is very private, very quiet and very serene. Relaxing on the wrap around porch or on one of the decks and watching the deer run by or listening to the birds chirp or the waters roll in off Lake Michigan make it the perfect retreat. The Sauguatuck/Douglas area are just moments away. We love the wonderful dining, entertainment, shopping and beaches. This is truly our little slice of Heaven!

What makes this house unique

From the moment we walked onto the property, we knew this was the home for us. The beautiful wrap around porch with comfy outdoor furniture made us not want to leave. The quality and condition of the interior with its beautiful cherry wood floors, cabinetry, lighting and 360 degree view of the woods was exactly what we were looking for. The master suite with its own bath and the two large bedrooms upstairs with their own bath as well as the finished lower level is the perfect set up for a family or for several couples wanting to get away. The kitchen is a dream to work in and you never seem seperated from the other guests. The cozy den is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or sneak in an afternoon nap. The fireplace in the living room just tops off the many features. Relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a fun day and watching the trees sway lazily with the breeze is so relaxing. This home is a 10 in our books!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house to stay in if you are visiting the Saugatuck area. We loved the hot tub, the beautiful front porch, and the very quiet setting. It has a nice big downstairs for everyone to watch TV together. We brought my son and daughter with their families and the house was very comfortable for all of us. Thank you Teri for sharing this with us.

We enjoyed our week stay at this wonderful home with its beautiful setting. The home provided all our needs, fully equipped kitchen, plenty of sleeping areas with wonderful bedding.we especially loved using the hot tub, sitting on the decks and front porch, grilling and our walks to the lake to watch the sunsets. Great little towns and restaurants nearby.

We all had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home! The house was perfect and had everything we needed. It was very clean, tastefully decorated, in a great neighborhood and very close to the lake. We would love to come back again and would happily recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in Michigan.

Beautiful and peaceful rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely beautiful!! Very clean and so much space!!!! 1st time to this area of MI and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. While it may not be on Lake Michigan, there are 2 beaches extremely close. (One even has a play structure, which was very convenient for our kids). Highly recommended this rental!! You will not be disappointed!
