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!

LOVE. IT.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I normally stay at another place in Saugatuck, but they weren't getting back to us on availability. Their loss because we think this is going to be our 'go to' place from here on out. We loved it! We split up: some in the house and two of us stayed in the bungalow and it was perfect. It took us a while to figure out how to get the heat just right, but we got it. Going between the house and the bungalow was not an issue at all, it was about 10-15 steps. Even in the cold, it was not a big deal. The owners have thought of everything and the Keurig was an added bonus and a blessing, for sure! Thank you so much for such a wonderful place to stay! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Adorable cottage and bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and adorably decorated. The host had supplied us with everything we needed. We stayed at the cottage in February and it was cozy. Very short walk to downtown.

Beautiful stay just blocks from the excitement of downtown!

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely beautiful! From the beginning we felt as though we were in our own home. The fenced in yard was perfect for Millie our doodle! The colors inside the home fill you with energy. We had great coffe and all the amenities a person could ask for.

Take a walk just a couple blocks and you can find the historical downtown filled with amazing shops and restaurants! We had the best meals everywhere we went. The people in the community are friendly and we felt like we had lived there for years.

Take a walk by the river, climb the Dunes, and just relax in the Butterfly Cottage. This home is a MUST STAY! We will definitely be back next year ☀️
