Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Butterfly Cottage is a truly unique cottage located in the Historic district of Saugatuck. Casual cottage styling mixed with colorful spaces, this cottage makes for a comfortable stay in Saugatuck. This quaint cottage will accommodate 8 or 9 people comfortably.

The main house has two bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and the other with a full. The bungalow, just steps away in the backyard, serves as the third bedroom and has heat and air conditioning. The bungalow has a queen size bed and also bunk beds. The bungalow has a full bath that was added in 2011.

Located in the heart of the village district, plan on walking to all the in-town locations. The river is just a few hundred feet away with shops, restaurants and parks located within a 3-10 minute walk. If you are familiar with Saugatuck, Butterfly cottage is a stone's throw from the public boat launch, Gleason's market and Ida Reds.

We are happy to be one of the few places to welcome well mannered pets in our cottage. An added plus, the back yard is fully fenced.

Our home was fully booked all but 2 nights during the summer season this year. We are beginning to fill up for 2012, so please contact us early if your dates are limited. During June, July and August, we try to limit ( with some flexibility ) our rental periods to full weeks running Saturday to Saturday.

About Scott Sanderson

We purchased Butterfly Cottage in 1999 as a weekend getaway. Saugatuck is such a unique community,with a lot to offer. We enjoyed our weekends in Saugatuck so much, we sold our house in Kalamazoo and moved out to Butterfly Cottage full time from 2001 through 2003. When we decided to start a family, we made our cottage available for seasonal rentals for a few years. During this time, it was nearly always full and we enjoyed reading the comments left by our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great relaxing time here in Saugatuck as always. It's a nice little get away. The Butterfly Cottage is nicely put together...we love the color schemes. Of course the best parts are Kilwin's Ice Cream and Oval Beach. Wonderful time...hope to be back in this cottage next year. Thank You!

We had a very enjoyable stay at Butterfly Cottage. it is so cute and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Butterfly Cottage. We have always loved the Saugatuck area, but have never stayed more than a day. A big reason we chose this house was because of the second separate bungalow as we had different generations staying together . The kids loved the bunk beds. And the large patio set was great for family dining. The decor is so charming and welcoming. Very comfortable beds and plenty of towels and linens. So much to see and do in the area. I would highly recommend Butterfly Cottage to others looking for a place in Saugatuck.

Thank you for an incredible stay in your lovely cottage. It was the perfect location for our family.

We truly appreciated the charm of your home and the convenience of being located just steps away from shops, restaurants and the waterfront. This was the perfect place for a family vacation with our chilldren and grandchildren. I hope we can return someday soon.
