Welcome to Pure Michigan! Enjoy your cottage oasis and escape from it all. Nestled among a group of 4 cottages, you will fall in love with this inviting and luxurious Michigan experience.

Come see why Saugatuck has been named one of Americas best small towns year over year and home to some of the finest beaches in the great lakes.

If you’ve stayed with Rob and Eric before, you know we only offer amazing well cared-for properties, in the best locations, extremely well appointed, and with great communication from your hosts. We love our properties, we love our guests, and we want you to have an amazing stay with us. We are very excited to add to our portfolio this awesome group of cottages, in the perfect location if you’re visiting Saugatuck/Douglas. This property has it all - plenty of space per guest, tons of space to enjoy outdoors, relax under the stars in your own private hot tub (open year-round), shared grills/firepit and you're just minutes from downtown shopping/eating, and beaches.

This cottage has a great open floor plan – the kitchen/dining area, and living room all flow from one to the next with floor to ceiling windows looking out to the rear private patio/hot tub. The cottage also features a natural gas fireplace that sits at the head of the living room, and offers a 49" Smart TV above the mantle. If the location and amenities aren't enough, you’ll enjoy a blissful night’s sleep and wake up refreshed on our top of the line beds – all of the beds offer premium sateen sheets, feather pillows and feather down duvets. You won’t find any scratchy over bleached linens here! Here is an overview of the sleeping spaces and bathrooms:
- Bedroom 1 - Queen
- Bedroom 2 - Queen
- Living Room – Queen Sleeper Sofa
- Bathroom – Tub/Shower Combo, Toilet & Sink

In the bathrooms, you will find plenty of amenities including hand soap pumps, shower pumps dispensing shampoo, conditioner & body wash, and a full amenity tray. We stock plenty of plush bath towels, and you’ll even find bathrobes in closets for use during your stay.

We cook… a lot! So we couldn’t imagine offering you a poorly stocked kitchen…. This kitchen has tons of cabinets and ample counter space… and lucky for you, we’ve already got the cabinets stocked with all the utensils, serving dishes and small appliances you’ll need to make and serve a full meal. Our most common questions regarding the kitchen are about coffee makers and toasters. The toaster is a 4-slice, and the coffee maker uses coffee grounds and has a wire mesh reusable filter. If you’re hoping to have everyone sit down at a table for a meal, you'll find plenty of room to prepare and serve a meal either inside or out! As for appliances- everything is stainless steel and includes a double basin sink, dishwasher, electric range, over the range built-in microwave, and of course a refrigerator with an automatic ice maker. Worried about having enough hot water? We have you covered there as well by utilizing a tankless hot water heater!

This home also offers both a private front deck, and private rear deck. Both are great, but we think of the front as one to keep an eye on the action (or the kids), and the back more private for relaxing in or out of your private hot tub (open year-round). On the common grounds you'll see plenty of grass to set up your own yard games, and you'll also find a shared fire pit (fire wood not included), and shared propane grills (propane provided).
Please note that the cottage is attached to another cottage. So there is one shared wall with the other cottage. Please be considerate about noise levels.
Now that we know this is an amazing property, let’s talk about the location...

Our most common question is about the home’s proximity to the beach and downtown. Douglas Beach is along Lakeshore Drive, and while it has limited parking, this free cliff-style beach accessible by stairs is only 3.2 miles from the home. Once there, on the upper level you can also enjoy a nice walk along the coastline of beautiful Lakeshore Drive – amazing views of Lake Michigan and its beautiful sunsets will be on one side, and some really amazing homes on the other. But if you’re coming here for the beach, you probably want to check out award winning Oval Beach. If Oval is your destination, it really doesn’t matter where you stay in town, as long as you pick a property between the two main exits for Saugatuck/Douglas (exits 36 & 41). With the town being so small, the driving time to Oval Beach will be roughly the same for every vacation rental in town, give or take a few minutes. I say this because there is a long stretch of winding/wooded country drive approaching Oval Beach that is really not designed for pedestrians, and with this area being so small, no property really has a big “Oval Beach” advantage since you really need to arrive there on some wheels. It’s a gorgeous beach, but plan to drive or take the “Interurban Oval Beach Shuttle” from town if you are going.

As for exact distances…
- Douglas Beach is 3.2 miles from this home
- Oval Beach is 4.2 miles from this home
- Oval Beach is 3.2 miles from downtown Saugatuck
- Downtown Saugatuck is 1.0 miles from this home
- Exit 36 off of Highway 196 is 2.9 miles from this home
- Exit 41 off of Highway 196 is 1.8 miles from this home

We do not discriminate based on age, race, sexual orientation, gender, religion, disability, national origin or any other reason people have found to discriminate. All are welcome in our home!! We believe in equality for everyone. Our home is a place where all should feel safe and be able to enjoy the beauty of Michigan.

Gästers tillgång
Guests will enjoy this entire home featuring 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on a gorgeous lot shared with 3 other cottages. The home is equipped with a 49" LG Smart TV and includes a Netflix subscription, but does not have cable/satellite/antenna programming. There are two physical structures on the property, essentially two duplexes - each structure offers two cottages, with one shared wall between each pair.

Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions to our cancellation policy, including the changing of dates- we are not a big corporation and rely on the income from bookings to pay the mortgage. If you anticipate potential health issues, weather concerns or other reasons you might not be able honor your reservation, consider purchasing travel insurance. Travel insurance is very affordable and should cover you should something come up last minute that puts your stay at risk.

Andra saker att notera
This amazing property will offer you the best of everything Saugatuck/Douglas has to offer, that requires the cooperation/understanding of everyone on a few items. Please note that weapons of any type are not permitted inside or outside. While we try very hard to keep all creatures outside, being on a wooded lot in a lake community this can be challenging! There are definitely LOTS of animals we all love to see, but nobody ever seems fond of sighting a wide variety of bugs! Lol We try to strike a balance of not over-treating any of our properties to where you are exposed to harsh chemicals, and generally we believe if creatures are outside where they belong, we will let nature find the right balance. Non-poisonous spiders OUTSIDE on a damp wooded lot can actually help control mosquitos and the spread of harmful disease, so we try to give them some space to do their job. As for animals, year round you will see lots of deer, squirrels/chipmunks, birds, fox, turkeys and many others. In season we get our fair share of mosquitos, and with deer around, we also have ticks… so bring a non-toxic mosquito and tick repellant so you can fully enjoy the beautiful fresh air outdoors. Don’t be surprised if you are driving back from the beach and the large "fake" deer in the front yard of the house you are passing starts moving, or you have to slow down for a wild pack of turkies crossing the road, and if you are up late at night, please snap us a picture of our nighttime neighbor that likes to ransack the trash cans when the lid is not fully sealed/closed, we would like to know who it is – likely raccoons…. but we haven’t spotted them yet!

We have a shared fire pit, hammocks and lounge chairs in the shared yard. We don't provide firewood. Also on the grounds you will find each cottage has its own propane grill. These are specifically not placed on wooden decks or paths, as this violates our local fire ordinances. As for propane, you should find a full tank to get you started, but like the other amenities in the cottage, when you've used the supplies we've given you to get started, you're on your own for propane refills, more toilet paper/paper towels, etc. As for firewood, if you want to pick up some firewood locally, check out "Bob's Archery Tag" in our guidebook (24-hour cash self-service firewood). As we gather wood and twigs in the yard from the nearby trees we stack them up for you to use in helping you get your fire started. Lighter fluid is not permitted anywhere on the property, and definitely should not be used in the propane grills or in the fire pit.

You are also welcome to bring along any outdoor games you might enjoy (corn hole/bags, croquet, etc.) - there is plenty of room to bring the fun outside. There are 8 shared chairs around the fire pit (shown in the photos), but don't hesitate to pull up your own beach chairs you bring along or rent from one of the places we have listed in our guidebook.

While each cottage has the ability to control its own temperature, be aware that these cottages have a shared forced air HVAC system, which circulates air between cottages. As such, we aren't able to make exceptions to our no animals policy for this property- your furry friends or family members aren't able to stay at this location, or even just stop by for a visit since those in adjacent cottages with allergies expecting animal-free accommodations can be severely impacted. Don't worry, in our owner profile you’ll find we have other amazing listings where the entire family is welcome to join you.

We know you'll enjoy a great stay and can’t wait to share this amazing property with you!

Scroll up.... way up... to the first paragraph of the ad for more info

I've never rented an Airbnb before... are there any potential charges I might incur after booking?
We expect to lose a glass or towel or spatula from time to time, and aren't looking to nickel and dime you for "extras", but sometimes there are real damages we have to charge for. If you follow the check-out instructions, check-out on-time, and are up front about any damages, you are less likely to incur any extra charges or late check-out fees. The most important thing to us is that we want everything in place and working for the next guests, so we really appreciate a heads-up as soon as possible so we can be ready for guest changeover. Finding damaged/missing items on a changeover means almost certainly we will not be 100% ready for the next guests, and undisclosed damage likely will result in a charge.

Saugatuck, Michigan, USA

Maple Street runs along the east side of downtown, parallel to Blue Star Highway, and is a great location to make home base for your stay! In the warmer months you might choose to walk into downtown- it maps at exactly a mile to the Saugatuck Center For The Arts, but in inclement or extreme hot/cold weather, it might be better to stick to the car (or make dad drop you off so you don’t have to fight for parking)!

Unsure if you’re looking at the right properties for your visit to Saugatuck/Douglas? Let us help…. so, if you’re looking to visit Saugatuck/Douglas, zoom in near Saugatuck using the map program of your choice, and you'll see highway 196, exit 36 (Douglas exit just south of Saugatuck Brewing Company). Near exit 36, if you look along the Michigan coastline, you’ll see a street called Lakeshore Drive. Notice as you follow it south, it dead ends… cuts off… for us, that’s the “end of the world”. Ideally you want to be north of this cutoff when you make your vacation rental selection if you’re visiting Saugatuck/Douglas. No matter what city your map program thinks you’re in, if you’re north of this break in Lakeshore Drive, you’re in Saugatuck or Douglas. This is right near the border of Fennville, and with many of these being private drives, the map programs don’t have all of these addresses correct. On the North side, you can follow 196 on the map up to the next exit (exit 41 – Saugatuck exit near Burger King and the new Guardian Brewery), and feel comfortable selecting properties anywhere along the way between exits 36 & 41. On the east side, I’d probably try to stay West of 63rd St, and definitely west of 58th St. This is a really small area, so one good thing about staying closer to far edges of this area I described is that you likely will get a more secluded and relaxing experience in your vacation rental, while still being super-close to downtown/restaurants/beaches/etc.. of course staying near town has its perks too- you can ditch the car and walk to food/bars/shopping/etc.

This particular property is just east of downtown Saugatuck, right in the center of everything, so you'll enjoy easy access to both downtown Saugatuck and Douglas, Douglas & Oval Beaches, Dunes State Park, and everything else you would want to explore and enjoy in town..... but..... you're far enough outside of downtown, that heavy pedestrian and car traffic, and parking won't be a problem!

Since the unit has keyless entry allowing for easy self-check-in/check-out, we likely won't have the pleasure of meeting in person. Of course, if you need anything during your stay, we're just a text away, and live just a few minutes down the road should a problem arise. We've also provided lots of information in our online and in-room guidebooks, but don't hesitate to ask if we can help with any additional needs/suggestions. Shortly after booking, the first message you receive in the Airbnb Message center will contain a unique 4-digit passcode. This passcode will be used to access the unit throughout your stay and will enable you to check-in as late as you'd like. You will have neighbors nearby that I'm sure you'll be respectful of throughout your stay- especially if you will be arriving late at night. As such, we do not restrict how late you can arrive, and exterior lights in the front are on a timer to be sure you can find your way in after dark. Please note that we tend to keep the property pretty full/busy, so we normally can not accommodate early check-ins or late checkouts, but are happy to send you a message via the Airbnb Message Center when the unit is ready upon request.
