Perfect Setting for Girlfriend Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful just as the pictures showed! We got very lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy the very short walk to the beach and even got some swimming in! The staff is amazing. We had a problem with the cable for the TVs and they were right out there to fix it. Not that we used it much! But some of the girls had to see how the Tigers were doing. There were 13 of us and we all had a wonderful time! We would definitely come back again!

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!!!
