Dating from the late 1800's, the original structure is believed to have been an ice storage house from Singapore, Michigan. Singapore was located on the Kalamazoo River near the present day Oval Beach. The shifting sands along the shore were a constant threat to the village and many structures were relocated to Saugatuck.

Love Singapore Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice over the years and both times, thought it a wonderful place for a getaway. The cottage is immaculate and has all the simple amenities you would need for a vacation. Rob and John are wonderful hosts and make sure you are taken care of in a timely manner. Yard is beautiful and loved sitting on the deck to relax. I will definitely be back!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were in need of a last minute, relaxing getaway weekend. Singapore Cottage was the perfect place. It is a delightful little cottage set in a park like setting on a beautiful tree lined street.. The interior is exceptionally clean and comfortable. We felt at home immediately. We contacted the owners the morning of the day we wanted to arrive. They kindly agreed and had the place ready for us when we arrived later that afternoon. They made sure we were comfortable and had information about all the area has to offer. The cottage is a short walk from downtown (really). It was great to walk to town and have a relaxing dinner, sit awhile by the water and leisurely stroll back. Oval Beach is a short ride away and offers spectacular views of the sun setting over Lake Michigan. If you need a place to stay in this area of Western Michigan, SIngapore Cottage should be first on your list. The cottage, the surroundings, the owners, and the location are all the perfect ingredients for a great getaway.

Successfuly Family GetAway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking to get out of Chicago for a long weekend and this little home was just what we were looking for! We traveled with our two kids (toddler and infant) and there was room enough for everyone. Our hosts were super nice and it was clear they take great pride in providing a super clean, well decorated and stocked cottage. It was absolutely perfect. It's a short walk to downtown and everything you would need - restaurants, activities, etc. We wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again and plan to in the spring! Thank you!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The little cottage on John and Rob's property was absolutely prefect for our getaway. The windows are beautiful and let in so much natural light. The landscaping on their property was prefect, and they were both so welcoming. The bed was comfortable, and the location was just a few minute walk from downtown Saugatuck, so we never had to worry about parking. It was also just a three minute drive to Douglas or a 15 minute drive to Holland. We will definitely be visiting again.

Perfectly charming!

  • 5 of 5

Singapore Cottage was the 'icing on the cake' of our trip to Saugatuck. Being only two blocks from town, the location is ideal.

The friendly town is filled with shops, cafes, galleries and restaurants located on picturesque Lake Kalamazoo.

The cottage is surrounded by beautiful, serene landscaping on all sides. There is a small pond close to the patio, beneath the trees, that just adds to the enjoyment of sitting outdoors.

The cottage itself is immaculately clean and so lovely. Lots of windows, beautiful wood floors, pitched ceiling, soothing color scheme.

Rob and John are such welcoming and gracious hosts. My daughter and I were glad to know they were right next door.

We can't wait to return to Singapore Cottage. We miss it already!
