Space 850 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Recently renovated cottage from top to bottom offering first availability summer of 2011. All new electric, plumbing, cabinets, appliances and electronics along with interior finishes, not the least of which is the newly refinished hardwood floors that were discovered under year's old carpeting. In addition to the complete renovation, we more recently made a significant investment in 2013, replacing the windows along with structural renovation and encapsulation of the crawlspace, eliminating humidity in the house, further mitigated by complete replacement of all HVAC ductwork.

You'll enjoy the peaceful setting from your picture window seat in the living room that affords a full view of the front yard (and the occasional black squirrels that pass through). The 40" HD LED Smart TV provides traditional television content as well as NetFlix movies and other entertainment options.

The master bedroom features its own bathroom along with Olympic Queen Sleep Number bed, 28" LED TV and closet. The second bedroom is likewise equipped with a 28" LED TV and two Twin Beds along with a small closet.

The full featured kitchen is equipped with gas range, microwave and refrigerator in the midst of ample counter space along with brand new cabinets. You'll also find a stacked washer and dryer quieted by its closet in the corner of the kitchen.

In the midst of the renovation we made an effort to retain a few relics from the original house such as the cased entry into the kitchen [retained the North trim piece with all its flaws!], the 2-panel doors [two were converted to pocket doors and the other two retained in their original state, complete with glass door knobs].

Location, optimized space along with all the conveniences and comforts to make your stay in Saugatuck one to be remembered!

About Dave Boller

We are Dave & Laurie Boller and are pleased that you're visiting our listing!

Originally from Florida [Dave grew up in Tampa - Laurie grew up in Key West], we moved to the Midwest in 1995, raising two children in the Chicago suburbs accompanied by our Labrador Retriever.

We enjoy the RV lifestyle, having traveled the country in a travel trailer and now a motorhome, which currently is our principal residence while we engage in seasonal employment at recreational venues around the country.

With that, it's easy to guess that we enjoy all things outdoors, be it hiking mountain trails or walks on the beach and everything in between.

Dave Boller purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Dave Boller chose Michigan

Following a vacation along the Michigan shore July of 2010 we found ourselves making day trips back to the various communities, finally settling on Saugatuck for its small harbor town appeal along with the shopping, restaurants, beach and access to Lake Michigan. We picked this particular property because of its immediate proximity to town while leveraging the elevation of the hill to escape the congestion of the business district.

What makes this cottage unique

Access to town along with a quiet, peaceful neighborhood setting. Sipping morning coffee while sitting in the living room picture window will be a great way to start the day. Five minutes out the front door you can be making your choice where you'll be having breakfast in town after which you can enjoy a walk along the harbor or ride the chain ferry to the other side of the river.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this Saugatuck cottage, and we plan to return next year. We love the location in a quiet neighborhood on the hill, offering a short walk to downtown and all the shopping, dining, water sports and sightseeing Saugatuck has to offer. The cottage is very clean and nicely appointed with all the comforts of home (cable, wifi, laundry, etc.). The owner is great to work with too. Will definitely be back.

Very clean and cozy cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and are already talking about coming back. The cottage is clean and updated and had the basic amenities needed. It's a few min walk to downtown Saugatuck and a quick drive to the beach, just as advertised. It's got a yard so you can relax outside if you choose. We brought our dog so it was nice to have the yard. Saugatuck is such a cute beach town, very friendly, cute shops and good food.

We were very pleased with this lovely home. It had everything we needed and more! Super clean, fantastic location! We cannot express how much we enjoyed staying here! If anything, the advertising does not give this place enough credit!

perfect cozy cottage close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had the mostly lovely stay at this cottage over fourth of july weekend. the street is quiet and secluded feeling, but is literally steps to all the shops and restaurants. It's a small space, but was perfect for the four of us. The backyard is really pretty -- great place for an evening cocktail or two. Looking forward to coming back soon!

Second stay did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I held our annual girls weekend here for the second year in a row and were just as pleased as we were last year. From communication with the owner, to the location and condition of the cottage and amenities, we have nothing but high praise for the Mason Street cottage! Perfectly clean, well organized and equipped, on a quiet street yet just a short walk from downtown Saugatuck, this property exudes pride of ownership. You can tell the owner really wants his guests to enjoy their stay, which we always do! Thanks Dave!
