About the property

There are no real bears here but it's a perfect place to hibernate in the summer or winter. This lovely 2400 square foot log cabin home is situated just a few steps from Goshorn lake, a private no-wake lake perfect for swimming and fishing. Kayaks and canoes are welcome on the lake, but are not provided. You can rent them in town.

The home has three bedrooms upstairs and a full bath. The master bedroom has a queen bed, the first guest room has a queen and the second guest room has two twin beds. . The completely finished daylight basement has a daybed and a full sized bed. There is a full bath on this level. The home sleeps eight people, the maximum allowed by the homeowners association. There’s also a ground floor study that can be closed off from the rest of the house for those who have to work. High speed internet is included.

On the main level there is a fully equipped kitchen, a den, and a dining table that sits eight comfortably. On this level there is also a half bath.

The screened in porch is a nice place for morning coffee, all day resting, or a pleasant place to have lunch or dinner.

All linens, blankets, pillows, and towels are provided, except for beach towels. All you have to do is walk into the home and start enjoying yourself.

Downstairs there is a tv, a DVD player, movies, and board games.

Outside there is croquet, badminton, and of course, the beach and lake. Take a beverage down to the dock and enjoy the sunset or sit on the back porch and enjoy the quiet. There is a gas grill, a firepit, and a hammock for your enjoyment.

The home is a 5 minute drive to downtown Saugatuck where a day of shopping and wonderful restaurants await. If you’re feeling like a short hike, put on your walking shoes and follow the walking trail into downtown. Goshorn is just four miles away from Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Just a bit further around the lake is beautiful Oval beach on Lake Michigan. From Goshorn it’s a 15 minute drive to Holland and a 45 minute drive to Grand Rapids.

Pets are great, but we are a pet free and a smoke free home.

About David & Debbie Allnutt

Debbie was born and raised in Michigan, just south of Detroit and attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. After graduation she followed a job down to Houston where she met and married David. We moved quite a bit with his job through the years and finally landed in the one state we both could agree on, Texas. He’s a native Texan and I truly love it here in Dallas, but like that old saying: We spend the first part of our lives trying to get away from home and the last half trying to go home again, I always wanted to be connected to Michigan. When I was in Kalamazoo we frequently came to Saugatuck to enjoy the beach. I loved it then and never forgot about it. There’s so much to do here and so much on this side of the state we haven’t seen and are looking forward to discovering together.

Why David & Debbie Allnutt chose Saugatuck

When we decided to look into buying something here, this property came up almost immediately on our app. We wanted something on a lake, preferably a no wake lake which is what this is. We fell in love with the house. When we came to look at it and we knew immediately that this was the one. We love the trees that surround the area, the peacefulness of the lake, and the fact that there are only 16 homes in this association. It feels so secluded, but is so close to everything we want to do.

Relaxing place for time with the family

  • 5 of 5

Cute and well-kept. It was great to have the lake in the backyard and to be so close to Saugatuck and Oval Beach. My extended family of all ages was able to congregate, relax, nap, and play as needed. Thanks very much!
