Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife & I spent our 9th straight weekend along Lake Mi. We have visited a number of cottages and none are as 'cozy' as The Nutshell. We had a shortened stay due to my football teams game, but we were able to enjoy Mt. Baldhead Hike (yes there is a top!), Oval Beach, Downtown Saugatuck, Downtown Douglas, Holland, Mi, & the grill and picnic table at the Nutshell.



Thanks for the great place to stay and location! Other than us losing the keys for a couple hours, we had a great time!

Perfect fit for an outdoor couple

We loved staying at the nutshell! My fiancé and I brought our pup up for a weekend away, and we loved how cozy the cabin was. It's near the beach and downtown! Perfect spot for a weekend getaway. We will be back!

Close to everything

An amazing property close to every thing! With the chain link ferry into all of the amazing shops in Saugutuck and just a short walk to oval beach to watch the sunset. A great place to experience Saugutuck!
