Why Aaron K. Heltsmith chose Saugatuck

This was a well cared for property that unfortunately fell into disrepair for a number of years. We purchased the property in November 2012 and spent months bringing it back to life. We are very proud of the work we have done and would love to share our home with you and your family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Comfortably sleeps 11, private heated pool, lush landscaping, close to town hide-away with privacy, easy parking for multiple cars, boats and recreational vehicles, individually owned and managed.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We held our 2017 family Christmas gathering at Allegan Gardens. The house easily accommodated our party of eight. The kitchen has all the requirements needed to cook a full Christmas dinner. The large dining table allowed everyone to sit together.

The decor of the house is true it its heritage, yet modern. We found all the rooms to be very comfortable and cozy.

The location of Allegan Gardens is perfect. It is situated on a wooden lot that looks magical with the snow. We even saw deer run through the yard on a few occasions. The house is a very short drive to the towns of Douglas and Saugatuck, both darling towns with great restaurants and shops. The City of Holland is only a short 20 minute drive.

We loved our winter wonderland stay at Allegan Gardens.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

A few of my friends and I stayed at this homey place over New Years and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures don't do it justice -- it's a very spacious, clean and well maintained property with great amenities. It was snowing the whole time we were up there and it was very gorgeous! There's a nearby park that we went treading through, and for New Years we checked out the downtown Saugatuck area which has a lot of cute shops and a nice view of the lake. The owners were very helpful with our requests and I honestly couldn't ask for a smoother trip. We plan on coming back this summer!

Best Thanksgiving in years!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the property several times and I am never disappointed. A group of friends, my partner and I spent Thanksgiving week at Allegan Gardens. It was the perfect holiday setting for our meal and a great way to give thanks for an awesome 2017! The property is scenic and the house comfortable and clean. We want to book for 2018!
