Overview

Saugatuck 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!

Butterfly Cottage is a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This past week we stayed in Saugatuck at the Butterfly Cottage. We were a party of 6 + Dog (2 teenage girls, my parents, and my husband and I). The cottage is exactly as described. The location is amazing. It is within walking distance to downtown and there really is no reason to drive, because you won't find an open spot in Saugatuck anyway. We loved that everything was so accessible. The entire town LOVES dogs and there are water dishes and dog bones at most stores. The cottage layout was big enough so that we did not feel on top of one another and the bungalow is adorable. The cottage is very cute and the color scheme is so lovely and upbeat. The kitchen has everything you need and lots of room to stock the pantry with your own things. The washer and dryer are large and it was nice to be able to do a few loads so that when you get home, the laundry is already done. Saugatuck is a great little town with very friendly walking/jogging/biking path that runs up to Holland. We toured Douglas and Holland and also checked out the beaches. We tried Oval Beach, rode bikes to Felt Mansion and checked out the Mtn bike trail, Laketown Park (the sunset there was unbelievable), and Ripley Trail (Holland). Overall we had a great time in Saugatuck. We would highly recommend Butterfly Cottage to anyone and especially families that want to take their pets along!

Great Property; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

we really enjoyed the Butterfly Cottage. Excellent location, two blocks from the river and about three blocks from the main downtown area. Very comfortable and well-decorated place. We slept six there very comfortably; you could do 8 if you had 3-4 kids. Everything was functional -- A/C, stove, dishwasher, etc. What looked like a brand-new grill outside, and plenty of nice outdoor space to eat.

BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful family vacation at the Butterfly House. It's located in a very quiet neighborhood, has a private shaded/fenced backyard, and is within walking distance to downtown Saugatuck. Some of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen are within biking/short driving distance. Having the separate guest house was perfect for all six of us to spread out at night after playing games in the backyard for hours. The home was well equipped, and Scott, the owner, was very communicative to ensure we had a delightful stay. We'll be back for sure! Thanks Scott!

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.
