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 2018, 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!

I will consider it for my next stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great two days to spend in this lovely house. I will definitly consider it for my next stay with my kids. The owners are so nice, and they answer my questions and my calls in timely manner. The area is quiet as well, to a point that you think you live there alone!

Excellent location and Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Butterfly Cottage. The location is (at most) a 5 min walk to the heart of downtown Saugatuck, yet in a quiet and relaxing area. Bright and cheery, and best of all pet friendly. We had our 4 month old lab with us, and it was easy for us to take him almost everywhere downtown. If we didn't take him, we put him in his crate with a toy and he was very comfy. The fenced yard allowed for easy access to take him out, and we didn't have to worry he would get out of the yard. (Bring your crate if you have a dog) the guest cottage behind the main house was perfect for all of our kids- spacious bathroom and bunk beds and queen bed. The bedrooms in the main house were very nice as well! My only recommendations would be to provide menus and a stack of downtown saugatuck maps for guests to take with them as they get their bearings on the downtown and restaurant locations etc.

Even better than the pictures suggest. What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the stay. The cottage is just perfect and well maintained. It has a nice fenced in yard for the dogs and a lot of amenities over all. You can't ask to be closer to town. Far enough away from the noise but close enough for a two block walk to the action. Just love the place!

Great space in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of space for our family of four adults and one dog. We loved the patio and the bungalow. We had a great time in Saugatuck and enjoyed our rainy day trip to Bell's in Kalamazoo.
