About Teri Dougherty

Owners are brother and sister and their spouses. We live in Omaha, Nebraska where we were raised. We love the area and wanted to buy a place that was in superb condition to share with others and to use periodically by our families.

Teri Dougherty purchased this house in 2012

Why Teri Dougherty chose Fennville

We have vacationed in the area several times over the last few years visiting our brother. We fell in love with the area and the people. The beauty of the area, the peacefulness and the many things to do made us want to have a place we could call our own and share with others. This home's location and its unbelievably perfect condition made it an easy choice. It is surrounded by lush landscaping and forest. It is very private, very quiet and very serene. Relaxing on the wrap around porch or on one of the decks and watching the deer run by or listening to the birds chirp or the waters roll in off Lake Michigan make it the perfect retreat. The Sauguatuck/Douglas area are just moments away. We love the wonderful dining, entertainment, shopping and beaches. This is truly our little slice of Heaven!

What makes this house unique

From the moment we walked onto the property, we knew this was the home for us. The beautiful wrap around porch with comfy outdoor furniture made us not want to leave. The quality and condition of the interior with its beautiful cherry wood floors, cabinetry, lighting and 360 degree view of the woods was exactly what we were looking for. The master suite with its own bath and the two large bedrooms upstairs with their own bath as well as the finished lower level is the perfect set up for a family or for several couples wanting to get away. The kitchen is a dream to work in and you never seem seperated from the other guests. The cozy den is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or sneak in an afternoon nap. The fireplace in the living room just tops off the many features. Relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a fun day and watching the trees sway lazily with the breeze is so relaxing. This home is a 10 in our books!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"As posted in our Guest Book" Your house is absolutely amazing! We had such an amazing and relaxing week! Definitely plan on doing it again next year! Thanks!

This property is absolutely beautiful! Perfect location, perfect setting! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a girls weekend! From the minute we stepped foot in the house, we felt right at home. The coziness and warmth of the house had us all wanting to stay a few more days! Teri was so easy to work with and answered any questions promptly. She also provided us with great dining recommendations! The location was also perfect and so close to downtown Saugatuck! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for our winter weekend getaway!

Perfect peaceful escape!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with so many great amentities like the hot tub, fully stocked kitchen, very comfortable beds, 3 TVs, Wii, board games, nice blow up beds, fenced in yard and seating for everyone for watching movies and eating. The house is in the woods which feels so private and peaceful. The walk to the lake is under 10 minutes and the views along Lakeshore Drive are stunning. The house is very high quality newer construction with gorgeous bathrooms, kitchen and beautiful floors. Teri was so easy to work with and so responsive. We absolutely loved our weekend and are already planning a return trip. Fennville is such a quaint, fun little town with a surprising number of great restaurants and shops.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. We didn't want for anything! Fantastic floor plan, great decor, very comfortable beds (the Murphy bed was even awesome!) plenty of bathrooms and a well appointed kitchen...every detail was set out for us.

Thank You!

Secluded and quiet, would definitely rent again!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home near Lake Michigan! Ideally situated surrounded by nature and Lake Michigan a short walk away. The home was extremely clean and had all the amenities you might need. Many areas to relax and enjoy time away: rear balcony; front porch; hot tub; basement with video games, board games, movies and large HDTV; living room with gas log fireplace. Views from all sides of home beautiful. Would definitely recommend this home and the owners. The owners were very responsive, friendly and helpful!

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, well appointed home on a quiet wooded road just off Lake Michigan. Close to Saugatuck, Douglas, and wineries. The owner is friendly, flexible, and responsive. We have rented other homes in the area and this is our favorite so far. Had a wonderful October weekend with friends and will definitely be coming back!
