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.

Loved the house and relaxing outdoor porch.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to stay for enjoying walks, going to town, and just relaxing on the porch by the water feature. I have been here 3 times now and plan to return. Hosts are thoughtful and friendly. Cottage very immaculate.

Location was great. The grounds were beautiful. Rob and John are the best hosts. The kitchen was appointed so well, easy to whip up a meal. Hate to leave.

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!
