A truly amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at this beautiful house. The family room is huge and comfortable with games to keep people entertained. The deck is absolutely stunning with great views and comfort in the shade. The water and dock area was amazing for fishing and swimming.

This house has all the amenities of home and then some. We look forward to going back to this house in the future. Thank you for everything Dana we had a great weekend.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I rented the big house, along with the smaller Frog unit, for a girl's weekend in Saugatuck. This house was even better than the pictures make it out to be! The deck area is HUGE, and we had no problem fitting our entire group of 18 people onto it. Additionally, there is a large platform at the end of the pier that was perfect for laying in the sun all day (or doing cannonballs off of into the lake). The house was very clean and the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware, serving utensils, pots and pans, and basic spices. I had read in another review that there was only a Kurig available, but that is not the case - there are both a Kurig and a regular coffee pot.

The only thing I would do differently next time is only bring 16 people for the spaces instead of 18 (keep in mind we rented both units). The couch in the main living room doesn't pull out, so we ended up with one person on a couch and another on a loveseat + ottoman. This is more an issue of me not reading closely enough than any problem with the unit. The beds are all great, and the two futons would be better served for kids than adults, but we made it work.

Laura was incredibly responsive throughout the whole rental process, quickly responding and answering the several questions I sent her way. Additionally, she answered the phone right away when someone in our group popped a breaker with her hair dryer and helped us find the breaker box.

I was a little worried about the house being out of the downtown area, but that honestly ended up being a huge bonus. The lake in front is perfect for kayaking, the neighborhood is peaceful, the house has ample parking, and we were able to take the Interurban bus into town for $1/person! That was a total win.

All in all, our stay was amazing and we are already talking about booking again next year. Thank you, Laura, for a delightful stay!

A great family retreat!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great rental. Communications, planning and the house were all top notch. Very easy to book and plan. Owner was proactive in asking if we wanted to rent paddle boards and had them delivered right to the dock. The house was in great condition with no issues. 4 bedrooms with 4 baths is the way to go. My two sisters and I planned this for my parents 50th anniversary and it was perfect for 4 families. The kitchen area, family room, play room combination is perfect for entertaining. The kids had a blast with the ping pong table and darts. The weather was perfect, so majority of our time was spent on the many decks outside, hot tub, by the fire pit or most of all, playing on the amazing new sun platform at the end of the dock. This was added right before we arrived and made for a great area to hang out and run down the dock to jump in the water. Silver Lake is a great lake for all sports and not too crowded or over run by boat/waverunner traffic. The drive into downtown Saugatuck is about 10 min and very easy to get too. As is the local grocery store if you need anything. We would for sure book this again. Thank you.

Perfect Home for a Family

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was getting married in Saugatuck. My husband and I rented this home knowing we would have many people in and out all weekend, so we wanted space and activities for family and friends.

This house was everything we expected and more. We did not have a glitch all weekend.

I did have a question for Laura, I called she answered immediately and was very accomidating and made me feel our question was important and to call anytime.

The water and kayaks were perfect for the kids.

The inside of the house had everything we could want. The inside of the house was clean.

The house was absolutely Beautiful!

If I had one suggestion to make (which to us was not such a big deal) I would ask that the patio furniture, grill and cob webs be cleaned outside.

This would not deture me, after all it's the season. Just a suggestion if I was to stay longer I would of done this for people visiting us.

My overall impression; We would stay here in a heart beat! Beautiful home, availability of owners was a phone call away and extremely kind and helpful!

Wonderful weekend!

Great family lake property!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was the perfect home away from home on our family trip to Saugatuck! We comfortably fit 4 families in the house and had plenty of room. The large multi-level deck right off of the great room area is perfect. The house was clean and ready for us upon arrival, and the hot tub nice and hot! We were able to fish right off of the dock on the property, and the kids loved playing on the beach and swimming right there as well. The house is also a great location, secluded and on a quiet area of the lake, but still just minutes from Saugatuck and Douglas. We hope to come back to Saugatuck and stay at this property again!
