Cozy Cottage in a Charming and Beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at this cozy cottage! Our first trip to the area and I highly recommend it... the local small towns were picturesque with great restaurants and cute, upscale shops. Just a short jaunt to Grand Rapids, too, where we really enjoyed the museum and the Grand Rapids Market. (Unfortunately, the presidential museum has just recently closed for a year-long renovation project.)

Although we didn't have the opportunity to meet the host, Carol, she was very gracious despite many issues that were of our own making.


-The kitchen was particularly exceptionally well-appointed and the cottage was very tidy.

-The cottage is situated in a residential area that feels very safe.

-There are many board and card games available... great for families like ours!

-As you enter the floor is at a substantial slant, which caused problems for one family member with a stability/strength issue.

-The bathroom is only accessible through a bedroom.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week and will definitely be back. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities to make us feel at home. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. There is a washer and drier, a bonfire and gas grill. It was so nice to sit around the bonfire with kids at night and look at the stars.

The owners are very sweet and hospitable and it made our stay even more pleasant. There is a wireless internet but unfortunately it didn't work at the cottage which in a way was a blessing from the sky since we could not use any of our electronics except phones and had more time for family bonding.

Thank you Carol and Pat for your hospitality! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back next year.

What a gem close to Saugatuck

  • 5 of 5

We booked 2 nights for our annual girls getaway. The cabin is wonderful -- we all slept like a babies. All the beds are very comfortable, even the hide a bed! The cabin has everything you need --just remember to bring your sheets, bath towel and a couple of kitchen towels and you will be all set. Beautifully landscaped setting on a nice quiet lake. Short drive to Saugatuck. We will be back!

Very charming and personable hosts in home close by!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in this clean comfortable little cottage! The owners live close by and were so helpful and friendly and great enjoyment to talk to!! There was plenty of room for our two grandchildren to come and "hang out" with us; fish, explore and sit on deck. We will enjoy this again in the future....Thanks Mr. Pat and Mrs. Carol!!!!

Our Mom Loved This Place

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I brought our mom their for 5 days. It was wonderful eating & playing cards on the deck while watching the woodpeckers feed their babies. And other birds. Very peaceful and relaxing. Very clean. We also caught a few pan fish off the dock. View of the lake is blocked but still a wonderful setting. Would go back.

had a lovely time

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 (kids 5 and 8) stayed in the cottage for our family vacation. We had a great time fishing on the lake, the kids were able to catch plenty of bluegill and even a few bass to keep them entertained. Pat and Carol were very helpful when needed. We were well within easy travel distances of beaches in Saugatuck, Holland, and South Haven and all the shopping and fun we could handle. Only minor issue was hot water for showers etc. Typically we would be able to take one shower or bath then have to wait to take another to let the water heat up again. That said the shower was lovely, great water pressure so nothing to really worry about. Thanks to Pat and Carol for a nice trip. We enjoyed it.
