About Brian Fletcher
Robert hails from the hill country of TX ... New Braunfels, TX to be exact whereas Brian was born and raised in Palos Heights, IL, south of Chicago. We have been together for 16 years, married and have three children ages 6.7 and 10 (the picture here is a bit old :)). The children keep us VERY busy with school, activities and the general drama that three little ones create everyday. However, we wouldn't change a thing; its perfect level of crazy. We currently live in Oak Park, IL with our two dogs, Stella and Sam, cat Tucker and one fish, Hawk.
Brian Fletcher purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Brian Fletcher chose Saugatuck
We have traveled to Saugatuck every year both before and after having children. It was the perfect getaway for a relaxing week and, now with three kids, has so much to do for families. Our children love the beach, dune ride, duck boat and the numerous ice cream shops. In the winter, sledding on the dunes is a huge hit as well as the nearby ski resorts (not huge but great for a day trip). We began coming up more often every year as there was activities in all four seasons. We always rented homes so the kids could run around and we could make some meals at home. But renting every time we came up was getting expensive and since the town has become a home away from home it made sense to buy a place here.
What makes this Cabin unique
As soon as we walked into this home, we knew it was perfect for us. It has the perfect vacation home look and feel making it seem we are far further from Chicago than the 2 hours it takes us to get there. We loved the group of homes so they kids can walk/explore and we don't have to worry about cars. The Association pool is perfect for cooler/windy days at the beach or a swim after the beach. Jumping off the pier and swimming/playing on rafts in the lake is also great. We also loved the ability to ride bikes, off road, into town. Unique to the property versus all the other homes in the association is the large front yard and private back yard.

Sweet Retreat in Saugatuck
We loved the area, it is so quaint and peaceful. We spent our days exploring the shops, enjoying the wineries, breweries and restaurants. Before heading home to our cozy cabin we would end our day watching the sunset on the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan. I would say it was a perfect getaway!
Great place to stay
Great location for a family trip. The place was nicely furnished and very clean. Pool and other amenities were great for little kids. Overall very nice cabin
Perfect retreat for weekend with family
This was an ideal site for the first of what we hope will be many three-generations gatherings. The cabin was so comfortable and well appointed. Over the course of our 3-night stay we made great use of the fire pit and grill, the Beat the Parents board game, and the screened back porch, as well as the pool and fishing pier (where we caught bluegill, largemouth bass and one catfish during our stay). It was also conveniently located to everything we wanted to see and do in the Saugatuck area. Ice cream and sand dune rides are just down the road (an easy walk), downtown Saugatuck is a quick 5-minute jaunt, and Oval Beach is just 12 minutes away. A couple of us also enjoyed the easy access to the bike trail, which we used for morning jogs and evening walks. We hope to return in future years for more family memories!
Summer time vacation
Good place to stay
Extremely Inviting and Hospitable Stay
I have stayed at quite a few VRBOs. This stay was remarkable for several reasons. The owners clearly sought to make the stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They provide a list of activities, restaurants, and even an Apple TV/Netflix for use. The house was immaculate when we checked into it, and it was very comfortable.
Big, beautiful, clean and extremely comfortable.
This was a great place for a winter get-away for our family. We relaxed all weekend. We sat by the fire and played games. The kitchen was very well equipped, perfect for cooking our meals.
The cabin is part of the charming and popular Kingfisher Cove lakefront cottage community. The home shares 200 feet of pristine Goshorn Lake frontage with an pier and easy in/out ladder for swimming and non-motorized boats. 17 acres of woods, a private association heated pool, boardwalks, nature trails and Lake Michigan breezes.
