Overview

Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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!

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5

This house is very nice and the location couldn't be better. It was clean and ready when we got there. Two blocks from Water Street and the restaurants and shops. Brand new Weber grill and everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely cottage in a great location! Clean, comfortable and welcoming.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the property and the small cottage building adjacent. There were five women gathering for a reunion; each of us had our own beds! Kitchen was well-equpped (although we could have used some wine glasses!). Beds were comfortable, living room and kitchen spacious for our conversations. We did have some trouble with the front door lock; it might be helpful to have that changed. Also, we wished for a motion controlled light outside the side door. the steps were tricky in the dark when we went from the main house to the cottage. Seems like a possible liability issue. Otherwise, it was terrific to be able to walk to all the shops and restaurants! Thanks for offering this delightful place for us!

Beautifully maintained property within walking distance of town. Luxury bedding and towels was a nice touch. Outdoor patio with fire pit is great spot for relaxing.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I rented the house for a relaxing girls weekend and were very happy with our stay. There were five of us and two babies so we used the bungalow out back as well and found it to be very comfortable. The place was really clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook except a blender. I would definitely choose to stay there again. Cute decor and very comfortable!

Artists retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was spotless and charming. Only a few issues. The lock box MUST be changed. We tried it around 40 times before it finally opened. Also, the second building was very cold and would not heat up, and did not have enough blankets. This would only be an issue for winter travelers. Finally, when we couldn't open the lock box there was nobody to contact. The owners may have been our of the country, but wish they had left a contact person.
