About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1 half bath, sleeps 6

You will love this location! Lakeside Beach House is less than a 5 minute walk to beautiful Douglas Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan & just a short bike ride to the DT areas of Douglas & Saugatuck.

This home is fully equipped with everything you can possibly need for cooking, cleaning, laundry, sleeping, entertaining & going to the beach. Simply put, Lakeside feels like home! It's beautifully furnished, impeccably clean & maintained and so comfortable that you won't want to leave.

Walk with morning coffee to Douglas Beach, searching for sea glass & take in Lake Michigan. Enjoy the cozy fireplace in the living room during cooler evenings. There's plenty of space and a great open floor plan. Free wireless access is provided for all those who keep up on e-mails or just love to play online.

Lakeside is just right for the perfect vacation! The beach, regardless of weather is spectacular. In town, you will find art galleries and more than enough shops & restaurants.

The first floor has a spacious sun-filled living room with vaulted ceilings, adjacent dining area, cook's kitchen, half-bath, and a fabulous master bedroom with full bath. BRAND NEW the Fall of 2014 is a 14' x 20' screened in porch with a lovely walkway to the outdoor patio and outdoor shower. This has quickly become everyone's 'favorite' room of the house.

The second floor has a large closet housing the washing machine and clothes dryer, two roomy beautiful bedrooms with a shared Jack 'n Jill bathroom. Both rooms have stunning views of the wooded lot.

All bedrooms are furnished with high-end pillow-top mattresses, luxurious linens and towels, ceiling fans, and HD TVs with full cable services.

Lake Michigan is so close by that when the windows are open, or when you are sitting on our patio or NEW porch you can hear a 'roaring sound''s nothing other than the waves of Lake Michigan hitting the sandy shore.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best vacation at Lakeside. The house exceeded my expectations and was the perfect place for my family and I to relax and get away from it all!! My girls' favorite part of the house was the porch. It was the best place to gather as a family at the end of our day. Jo was great to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed. I really cannot say enough good things about Lakeside. My family has already requested that we return to Lakeside and I think this is going to become our annual vacation spot!!!!

Little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at Lakeside. The accommodations were more than expected, so beautiful and peaceful. The location was perfect - 5 minutes from the very private and convenient Douglas beach and a less than 10 minute drive to quaint downtown Saugatuck. There is an awesome screened in porch, perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach! There is a supermarket very close by and the kitchen was fully stocked which made preparing meals very easy.

Jo was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating! We look forward to making more memories at Lakeside in the future!

Beautiful home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful home. The house was just as pretty in person as in the pictures. And very clean! My children enjoyed having lots of room to run and play in the yard when we were not at the beach. The adults enjoyed relaxing on the screened in porch. I appreciated the well stocked kitchen, which made it easy to cook for our group of 8. The location is ideal too...just a short walk to Douglas beach or a short drive to Oval beach. We had a blast doing the sand dune rides, the duck tour in a amphibious vehicle and climbing Mt. Baldhead. There were also tons of great restaurants and cute shops nearby. The owner left a welcoming note with her phone number, so I would have felt comfortable calling if we had any problems, but we had none. This was a perfect rental home and I would recommend it to anyone!

Owner's Response: Hi Jill...We are very happy that you had a great vacation at Lakeside! It is a family-friendly beach home, meant for sandy feet and evening chats on the porch. We appreciate the time you took to give us feedback. We hope you will visit us again!
