Come visit one of the best Lake Michigan beaches you'll ever want to see. Walk to the beach from our house. It's right up the lane. Open your windows when you go to bed and be lulled to sleep by the gentle rolling of the waves. There's nothing like sitting in the 6 person hot tub and gazing up at the azure sky and seeing a million stars. The 5200 sq ft house leaves so much to privacy, you can be with the crowd in the family room and on the back decks or venture off into the living room for some privacy. With three 'living' areas there is room for everyone.
Sorry, no pets allowed.
I rented this house for my family (five adult siblings with spouses and kids) and could not have been happier with the accommodations. The layout is spacious and affords plenty of room for large families or groups. There is ample driveway parking (which is a huge plus). The house is well-maintained and offers so many "extras" that we never once bemoaned the fact that we forgot something. The owner has thought of nearly everything to make your stay enjoyable.
The property itself is fairly private and located in a quiet area. Lakeshore Drive offers a great venue for long walks (in either direction). The yard, decks, porch, and sunroom offer plenty of seating/eating space. The kitchen never feels crowded (even with kids under foot). There are plenty of comfy chairs in quiet places if you wish to read in solitude. The game room is a great diversion for the kids after a day at the beach (which is an easy 5-10 minute walk, even for the little ones). The adults loved the Wii (maybe more than the kids). Once the kids are asleep, the hot tub is a heavenly resting place.
Downtown Saugatuck and Douglas are minutes away. I rode my bike to breakfast nearly every morning (try Ida Red's--great food). Everyday People Cafe is nice for dinner. My family did a dune ride which was loads of fun. Kayaking is also easily accessible.
As my sister-in-law commented when we left, "there is not a negative associated with this house." Needless to say, we are returning in 2010.
The listing of this house does not do it complete justice. It has everything listed & then some. All you need is your own personal items & food. Everything else is stocked in the house. We had a fabulous family vacation. The house is so clean & well maintained. The owner is a joy to work with. No complaints there!
One of the biggest assets is the large, spacious driveway. As you know all lake property parking is usually tight. No problem here. We had several cars & all fit nicely in the driveway. The house seems very private because of the foliage & it is quiet. The yard was great for hanging around the fire pit & kids playing on the new play set(which they loved)Beach is walking distance & lake Michigan is beautiful. The garage has beach chairs & play toys for your use. The extra fridge in there was great for all the extra drinks.
We are a family of 26 & we never felt cramped. Enough bathrooms. You could always find an empty one. The bedrooms are very well spaced throughout the house & comfortable beds. If weather permits to open the windows you can hear lake Michigan waves at night putting you to sleep. So relaxing!
The dining area is large enough to seat a large group. If there is overflow the sunroom is connected & has a table & chairs. We enjoyed the outdoor screened in room for cards & lunches. (at night there are lights overhead)
The kitchen has everything anyone could need for any meal. Every small appliance is there for your use. We did eat out a lot just because we were on vacation & treated ourselves. There are numerous good places to eat. The kids enjoyed the HUGE ice cream cones that are just down the road.
Some of the activities we had were kayaking, boat tour, antique shopping, nail spa, golfing, swimming, card playing, game room activities (kids loved the wii on the flat screen) treasure hunting, geo caching, story telling & laughing at some of the old family memories.
I must say it was one of the best family vacations we have had. A lot of memories were made. By the way~~~~as of yesterday we have added another family member. I' am a GREAT GRANDMA.
Thank You for a perfect family vacation. All of us in one house near beautiful Lake Michigan. Main activity was relaxing and spending time as a large family 20+ together. There was something for everyone to enjoy all week long. We loved it.
We rented this lovely home for a mini family reunion. There were 10 adults and 7 children. We all had a blast! The house was big enough for everyone to have their own space and the dining/kitchen area was great because we could all sit together and hang out. The adults loved the hot tub and the kids loved the fabulous yard with the playset and the game room!
Upon check in everything was spotless, incredibly clean and organized. The kitchen had every appliance you can think of. The beds were super comfy! The location is beautiful and very close to the beach.
The owner, Margaret, was wonderful and provided amazing customer service. Thanks for providing the perfect house for an amazing week!
This my groups 3rd year at this house. It a traditional we love spending a long weekend away from the city of Chicago. 6 years ago, 8 friends decided to get away from the city, through those years we have stayed at 3 different houses, and nothing tops this house. We love the space. Each year we have 14-16 people and we have more then enough space for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you need. We cook 4 meals a weekend. There are 2 refrigerators so you never run out of space to store food. Between the game room, hot tub, fire pit, and TV room equipped with Apple TV, there is never a lack of things to do around the house. The owner is a pleasure to work with and we plan to spend many more years visiting Saugatuck and this home has become our home, we love it and we never even look for another place. Thanks Margaret for all your help and can't wait to get things booked for 2014 and will be counting down the days till our return!!!
We stayed at this amazing home, 6 children and 14 adults. The home is well equipped and spacious. Everyone had their own space to read or whatever, and there were several places where all 14 adults could gather and chat at one time. There were more than enough games to keep the kids entertained - ages 3-14. The short walk to the beach was down a paved road. Eating accommodations were excellent and we could all enjoy breakfast together. There was a farmer's market nearby and we enjoyed plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. We will definitely stay here again in 2015. The property is well maintained and clean. The owner has thought of every amenity possible--we lacked for nothing, including the sweetener, Stevia. Several good restaurants and museums are close by. We all enjoyed a great time!
