Overview

About the property

Lisa & Oliver Wendell Douglas would feel right at home here. So will you!... Eb!

Your very own Saugatuck secret getaway. Trust me, you'll tell no one of your new discovery, this private, pleasure place. Of course, friends will want to know where you found a renovated, 12-acre farmhouse just under 2 miles from town and a five-minute drive to the beach. BUT damned if you're saying a word. After all they don't need to know THE ZOO offers the best of both worlds... the private, RUSTIC, country setting with star-filled nights or the crowds awaiting you in town by foot, bike or car. Morning coffee on the front lawn and drinks around back at the fire pit. Long country walks, shopping in town or days and sunsets at the beach. You decide.

Nothing fancy, just fun. Nothing beats your Daze at The Zoo.

What makes this cottage unique

Secluded yet close to the action. Nights around the firepit gazing at the stars is the best way to end your day.

A Great Saugatuck Option for Zoo...I mean you!

  • 4 of 5

The Zoo is a unique place to stay when visiting Saugatuck! The home is close enough to town to get there in under 10 minutes' drive but far enough away to be more secluded in the woods. The space was open, airy and spacious for our family with room to spread out and relax. It was well equipped with cable, Internet, games, and a backyard for grilling and bonfires in the fire pit. Our host was very helpful in providing advice on restaurants and activities. Definitely consider this property if you prefer to avoid the hustle/bustle of downtown for a more quiet and peaceful stay.

3 Nights AT THE ZOO

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a 3-day getaway while our kids were at summer camp. This location was appealing because it was close to Saugatuck (2.7 miles) but offered some seclusion and privacy. The home is surrounded by mature trees which offer great shade and a cool breeze. The home was clean and contained all the advertised amenities. We spent most of our time on the large screened-in front porch which offered a cool breeze and a unique atmosphere. We also utilized the fire pit on our last evening and enjoyed grilling some steaks next to a roaring fire. Overall, I would describe the interior of the home as rustic. It has some great features like exposed beams and skylights in the kitchen, but it has the rustic features of an old farmhouse. If you're looking for quaint, clean, and peaceful. This is the place for you.

A quirky cottage, full of spaces to catch up

  • 5 of 5

This quirky cottage was a great setting for my friends to have a mini college reunion during or friends wedding weekend. Barb had many great suggestions and had we been there longer we would have explored even more. Although the bedrooms don't have a ton of privacy, what it doesn't lack is space to hang out and catch up. We took advantage of the bonfire outside and the many areas with open windows to sit and eat food and play games together. Thanks for a great stay!

Great for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group rented the home for a weekend away and it did not disappoint! Barb was super easy to communicate with and super helpful! The house was homey and while its not in town its not too far out - it was nice to have space to spread out and enjoy ourselves. The house is clean, well stocked and beds were comfy. I'd certainly rent this home again!

Great country farmhouse off the beaten path with stargazing galore!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at "the Zoo" for the 4th of July holiday weekend, it was a blast! There were six of us in the house, lots of room to spread out. The house is quaint and rustic, and our group really liked its location outside of town in the countryside (at the same time, not far from town). We especially enjoyed the outdoor scenery and fire pit that we used every night. Smores, campfires, and fiddle tunes made it a memorable weekend. The house was comfortable for everyone and we cooked several amazing dinners in the kitchen (everything that we needed was there). Our group had a peaceful and relaxing holiday weekend and would recommend the Zoo if you're visiting. Barb was always helpful and gave us some great tips for visiting local spots. We especially liked the New Richmond Bridge which Barb told us about, great little spot!
