About Bonnie & Ron Wilkins

This picture is Ron & I at the top of Mt. Baldhead, a high dune in Saugatuck. Yes, we climbed all 282 steps to this deck on the top. Lake Kalamazoo is in the background. Great view. Lake Michigan is just west of Mt. Baldhead.

Ron & I ran Wilkins Hardware Co., a unique hardware store with exceptional customer service, old-fashioned friendliness, and modern convenience and selection in the entire ground floor of the building. We made our home on the second floor, raising our 3 kids. Now we share this wonderful space with you, our guests. Welcome, and enjoy.

Bonnie & Ron Wilkins purchased this apartment in 1985

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great 2 days. We thought the loft was lovely and beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed the location as we love to walk everywhere (15 miles on Friday!)

We come to Saugatuck area every summer and this was very enjoyable!

Creative Loft Apartment in the Heart of Downtown Saugatuck

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed three nights in the loft above the historic hardware store on Butler Street. The loft was spacious with lofted ceilings and large rooms. There is a proper master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and two loft style bedrooms (one of which is a pull-out sofa). The check-in was seamless with a combo lock on the door. We didn't use the kitchen/living area because we were generally out and about, but everything was clean and many of the appointments were creative additions to the loft feel.

Great Place, Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently stayed here for a last minute get-away and we're thrilled with it. It's located in the heart of town and we we able to walk everywhere. It was very clean and had a beautiful view. Unfortunately, the air conditioning wasn't working well, but there were plenty of fans provided so we weren't uncomfortable even though the temperature was in the high 80's. The owners were very apologetic. We would all definitely recommend this apt. loft and hope its available when we come back in the fall.

Awesome Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it here! Right in the heart of downtown with easy access to everything. VERY kid friendly with coloring books and colored pencils, etc. provided. Extremely spacious, and you really can't beat the convenience of arriving, getting right in, and settling into the comfort of the unit. We just loved how the entire unit was decorated to preserve the historical feel. The owners were outstandingly kind and they thought of everything. Simply excellent - we would certainly stay again and would absolutely recommend it to friends and family!

Great Location, Charming Loft

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for those going away to Saugatuck for the weekend. It is only a half block from the shopping and two blocks to the waterfront! They have a deadbolt with a combination which is really convenient for having multiple people since you don't need the key. The master bedroom is really large and there is room in the upstairs area for an air mattress if you have more than four people. For the price this was a great place.

The only negative was that the Air Conditioning was very loud and did not seem to really cool the loft. This was not much of an issue during our stay, but could be the end of July.

Highly recommend this location for a couple or small family to use.

Oval Beach

For more than 100 years, tourists have sought refuge from the stress of everyday life in the Saugatuck/ Douglas area - a peaceful place where no one rushes and no one rushes you. They can mellow out in surroundings reminiscent of vintage, small-town America, whose hallmarks are scenic beauty and a unique collection of shops, restaurants and art galleries. For those who want to mix relaxation with excitement, the area offers a year-round calendar of fun-filled activities and events. No wonder the National Trust for Historical Preservation designated these towns as one of the nation's Dozen Distinctive Destinations!

The two towns, nestled among towering sand dunes, are bordered by the winding Kalamazoo River on its way to Lake Michigan. Activities abound on the two waterways. Both towns maintain public beaches on Lake Michigan for swimmers and sunbathers. Saugatuck's Oval Beach has been rated by Condé Nast's Traveler Magazine as one of the 25 best shorelines in the world and one of America's 11 great Beachtowns. National Geographic Traveler Magazine agreed, rating it one of the top two freshwater beaches in America. More recently, the Chicago Tribune ranked it number one out of the Midwest's five best beaches and Life Magazine judged it Best Dune Town.

In addition to finding unique clothing and accessories for your self and for gifts, and seeing a kaleidoscopic of artwork in the galleries, we love to hike the dunes in Saugatuck Dunes State Park and Saugatuck Harbor Natural Area. We also enjoy touring the winery, farms and studios in next door harvest country. Kids enjoy sifting in the sand searching for stones & shells, including lucky stones. For more info, check out the Lucky Stone Tavern within Saugatuck Brewing Co.
