Beautiful contemporary home with top of the line finishes and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to get our kids home at the same time for a whopping 72 hours so we zipped up to Saugatuck for a short 48 hour stay. I found the home because it was one of the few that I could book for less than a week. Couldn't believe how gorgeous and spacious it was. Everyone walked around oo'ing and aah'ing for the first 10 minutes we were there and pretty sure the teen girls put lots of photos on Snapchat and Instagram immediately. The view and back deck were beautiful and we loved having coffee outside every morning, watching the wildlife on the preserve behind the house. The house is secluded and yet very conveniently located to downtown Douglas, Saugatuck and Oval Beach (all less than a 5 minute drive). The kitchen is professional grade and we had a great time all making dinner together the last night we were there. We are building a contemporary home ourselves so we were very interested to see all the choices that were made in turning this former club house into a home. It's beautifully done with top of the line finishes. We appreciated the little touches - bathrooms, laundry and kitchen were all fully stocked with all supplies you could think of needing. Again, the teen girls appreciated the makeup wipes in the guest bath. :)

In short, we loved David's beautiful home and are already trying to find a time to escape for longer next summer. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Group Gathering

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a group of 10 over the weekend, and this home is perfect for large groups. We loved having coffee in the morning on the big porch, and it was quick drive to downtown Saugatuck and Oval Beach. David was very accommodating and gave great recommendations. Would definitely come back again!

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely incredible house! The living spaces are much larger than the pictures show and the home is great for a big group. The house is very well stocked and everything is top of the line. The porch is delightful at all hours. The owner is responsive and wonderful to work with. I would recommend this to all of my family and friends!

Spacious living room with inviting fireplace and gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

This rental home was a great base for a family vacation. We could either explore Saugatuck and the beautiful surrounding area or stay at home and enjoy visiting in the large common family room. We grilled out on the deck, watched deer at dusk in the expansive backyard, walked down to the beach, had cozy fires in the fireplace and enjoyed family meals all together. Having everything on one level was a big plus! The grand piano enticed my daughter to play and it has been many years since piano lessons - it was very special!

Great Fall/Winter Escape from the City

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house in early December. The house was in immaculate condition. There were individual toiletries, bottled water and a Keurig coffee maker. The panoramic views out the back of the house are breathtaking, especially when there is snow. The neighboring town of Saugatuck was decorated for the holiday season and has several wonderful restaurants. We have already made our reservation for next year!

Situated on hillside overlooking former 85-acre golf course, now a nature center. On the outskirts of Douglas, less than half a mile to Lake Michigan public beaches, and 2 miles from Saugatuck, there are plenty of great restaurants, bars, antique and art shops.
