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.

                                                        Butterfly Cottage was a beautiful surprise! Exceptionally clean, great for the dogs, wonderful neighborhood, close to town and roomy for 4 adults! The separate bungalow is just great for another couple:) THanks for sharing your home!! We will definitely be back! Sally

                                                        Perfect location, cute home

                                                        Jennifer K.

                                                        Spent a long weekend in November. The bungalow was perfect for my husband, son, and I while the house accommodated my parents and sister. It is just a few blocks off of downtown, so we walked down a couple of times a day for meals and coffee.

                                                        The location was great!

                                                        Debra S.

                                                        We had a really nice stay at the Butterfly cottage. It was a cold rainy weekend but the cottage was cozy and a perfect fit for our party.

                                                        Great cottage just blocks from everything!

                                                        Ronda M.Illinois

                                                        This cottage is located just a few blocks from everything that there is to do in Saugatuck. Two bedrooms and a bath, and a very comfortable living area provide plenty of room, along with the eat in kitchen. Scott was very responsive to a problem that occurred at our arrival, and solved it easily. We would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

                                                        Cute cottage in the perfect location.

                                                        Dave O.

                                                        My friends and I stayed at this property for a Girl's Weekend and it was perfect. The location is a short walk to the shops and restaurants in Saugatuck. The house is so cute and has all the essentials you need. The guest house in the back is a great addition to this property. It has its own bathroom which came in handy with 6 girls.

                                                        We had a wonderful trip to Saugatuck and this property was perfect for our group of 6 women. The house is in great shape, decorated nicely and in the perfect location if you want to be close to the shops and restaurants.

                                                        **** Scott, the owner, is wonderful to work with. We had a reservation date mix-up (my fault, not his) and Scott went above and beyond to make sure we could get into the house asap. He didn't have to do that, but he did. He provided superior customer service to our group and I will definitely rent from him again.

                                                        The cottage was charming at a very convenient location

                                                        Connie J.

                                                        The Butterfly Cottage provided a most enjoyable stay for our family. The home was well equipped for all our needs and the decor was truly adorable, creating quite a comfortable and relaxed feeling. We also loved the bungalow for added space, which also was quite charming, with its own bathroom and shower. We also appreciated the convenience of the fenced-in yard for our dog.

                                                        The location was an easy walk several blocks into town. And also quite convenient, as we stayed here in the Fall, was a short 15 minute drive to Crane's Orchard for apple picking.

                                                        We would highly recommend this cottage for your stay in Saugatuck.
