Amazing wooded retreat near Lake Michigan, Beaches, Downtown Saugatuck/Douglas
We've been hosting vacation rentals since 2013, and prior to that spent many years working for Marriott in management positions across several brands, including Ritz Carlton. While we started our first vacation rentals in Chicago, Saugatuck/Douglas is now home.

What makes this Cabin unique
Other things to note This amazing property will offer you the best of staying in the country, while being right near everything Saugatuck/Douglas has to offer. While the lot is heavily wooded, hunting or weapons of any type are not permitted - this is still a residential area. Being more secluded there are a few things to know - being heavily wooded and not in a densely populated area options for television and internet are much more limited than in the city (internet is cell-based, and TV offering is Netflix/internet-based only), the water is fresh from a well (filtered in the refrigerator), and while we try very hard to keep all creatures outside, we're in the woods, so there are definitely LOTS of animals, and our fair share of bugs. Year round you will see lots of deer, squirrels/chipmunks, birds, and many others. In season we get our fair share of mosquitos, and with deer around, we also have ticks… so bring a non-toxic mosquito and tick repellant so you can fully enjoy the beautiful fresh air outdoors. Don’t be surprised if you turn around to look out the back window and there are deer in the yard- we’ve snapped a few pictures, and if you can find out which of our creature friends likes to ransack the trash can when the lid is not fully sealed/closed, we would like to know – likely raccoons…. we haven’t spotted them yet though. We have a fire pit and grill for your outdoor enjoyment. Bring along any outdoor games you might enjoy (corn hole/bags, croquet, etc.) - there is plenty of room to bring the fun outside. There are 8 chairs around the fire pit (shown in the photo), but you'll need to bring your own firewood or any other outdoor seating you might prefer. Don't worry, if you want to pick up some firewood locally, check out "Bob's Archery Tag" in our guidebook (24-hour cash self-service firewood). We know you'll enjoy a great stay and a great experience at Tranquility Retreat, and can’t wait to share this amazing home with you!

A Peaceful Haven
Idyllic is the best way to describe this home and it's location. It doesn't get much more peaceful than this gorgeous wooded setting and the home itself is beautifully designed. We saw deer, fox and turkey and enjoyed the lovely view from every window in the house. HIGHLY recommend this beautiful spot!
