Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accomodations a block from Lake Michigan. If you have a large family this is the house for you. Roomy kitchen, dining area. We could all eat together. Plenty of room and everything you need during your stay. 11 of us spent our days swimming, sand castle building, kayaking, boating and riding the dunes. Fun for all ages!

Very clean property. Was able to accommodate 14 adults. Had some minor home issues that Lakeshore Lodging addressed the same day. Home equiped with all essentials, cable, wifi, gas bbq. 1 block away from Douglas beach, unfortunately, the beach is extremely small.

Beautiful group friendly property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home that easily accommodated our group of 12. We were a quick walk to the beach and short drive to everything else. Especially loved the outdoor area with grill and plenty of seating around the fire pit. Highly recommended!

Fabulous family gathering accommodations

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house as a surprise to my husband to celebrate a milestone birthday with our kids and grandkids. The house was ideal for our family. The bedrooms are spacious, plenty of bathrooms, the living space was well thought outs and such a short, easy walk to the beach. Worked marvelous with little ones needing to go back to the house at various times. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and patio area in the evenings. The house is very conveniently located to both, down town Saugatuk and Douglas, Oval Beach, grocery stores and much more. Anything we needed was no more than a 10-15 minute drive. We found large group dinner were not easy to make, however, "Zing" was more than willing to accomodate us and provided great customer service. We have fond memories from our stay and would love to go back again!!!

Beautiful home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved everything about the Chestnut house and it was perfect for all 12 of us. This beautiful home has so much room and enough space that we could all hang out together or get away if you needed privacy. The large kitchen is well-appointed and the table was big enough for all us to gather around for a meal or games. Hanging out around the firepit at night was great. The house is only one block from Douglas beach and we would walk down with a cocktail and enjoy the sunset. Some of nearby activities we enjoyed were hiking in the state park, exploring other beaches, dune rides, renting bikes, and watching street performers on Thursday night in Holland. Don't hesitate to rent this house…you and your family will love it.

Owner's Response: Chestnut Retreat is spacious enough to accommodate your whole group with spaces to gather and spread out. Just as described the kitchen is large and equipped to serve groups of 12. One activity not mentioned is the pool table in the basement. The one block walk from the house down to Douglas beach is beautiful with glimpses of the lake ahead of you. That is also a fantastic example of the many activities you can enjoy when visiting the Saugatuck area. This guest clearly took full advantage of what this area has to offer and we hope you do as well!
