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!

It was the perfect holiday getaway!

The Butterfly Cottage was a perfect place to stay and enjoy Saugutuck. The house is cozy and comfortable with very such darling decor and all of the conveniences of home. We appreciated all of the lovely extras that were stocked up for our use. We parked our car and except for a hike up Mt. Baldhead and a run down to the Oval, we were able to walk everywhere and soak up all of the Christmas festivity and holiday cheer. This vacation rental is a treasure with a separate bed and bath where my Mom was able to retreat to and relax. Thank you to the Sandersons for making their home in Saugutuck feel like our home away from home. We did not want to leave and cannot wait to come back!

We are return customers to this charming & comfortable vacation rental. What brings us back is: 1) the location-just a few houses from downtown shopping & eating, 2) Reliability-the home is clean, safe, and no surprises when you arrive, 3) The owner is always accessible and helpful. We love Saugatuck for the restaurants like Phil's, Ida Reds, Wicks and The Butler. We enjoy walking around town and visiting Holland and South Haven. This cottage is in high demand so make reservations early.

The cottage is truly unique. It has everything you need for a weekend away from home. The home was spotlessly clean and had plenty of space for the 4 of us. I recommend the cottage to all looking to stay in Saugatuck
