Saugatuck & beyond:

The house is just 7 miles south of Saugatuck, where shopping, gourmet dining, art galleries and culture abound. Both Saugatuck and the neighboring Douglas are picturesque villages with beautiful historical architecture and views of the water. Saugatuck’s Oval Beach is another beautiful spot. Dune buggy rides or a boat excursion are also fun options.

The Lakeshore Drive area is close to many wonderful and fun things to see and visit. Our surroundings are blessed with beautiful trees and plenty wildlife. The proximity to Lake Michigan keeps you cool and relaxed.

Be sure to visit the wineries and fruit picking orchards around Fennville. South Haven offers beaches and quaint historic downtown. Holland is great for shopping, movie theaters and dining.

About Romelio Vargas & Kris Kallembach

Kris and Romelio live in the northern Chicago suburbs. Mike and his three daughters reside in the western Chicago suburbs. We have owned Orchard Beach House since 2000. We enjoy relaxed weekend with friends and family near the shore of Lake Michigan.

Romelio Vargas & Kris Kallembach purchased this house in 2000

Why Romelio Vargas & Kris Kallembach chose Fennville

We love Lake Michigan's beautiful white sand beaches, fresh air, wildlife, and wonderful art scene. We can get away from the busy big city life and come here for peace and quiet. When we need more town life, we simply drive 5 minutes away to Saugatuck or Douglas. As soon as we walk into our home, you can feel the stress melt away.

What makes this house unique

We have the best of everything that the area has to offer. We are a short stroll to the beach, about 5-10 minutes drive to the shops of Saugatuck and Douglas, and situated between several nature preserves. Our property is quiet, private but close to everything!

Orchard Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year for our family to stay at the Orchard Beach House. It provides all the comfort of home, while near all the beaches and resort attractions of a vacation. The grounds are beautiful and the setting is relaxing and calm. I highly recommend, just don't pick the week when we want to stay there. ;-)

Great place for family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the orchard beach house! House is well maintained, spacious and private. My family had a great week there. Very kid friendly. Although the beach access closest to the house was closed we didn't mind the short drive to the next beach down. We would love to rent this property again and I highly recommend it to others.

Orchard Beach House - Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice, clean and welcoming. We had a great week - this was the 9th summer we have stayed! The yard has many great features for adults and children as well. We have so much fun playing games, sitting and eating outside and the fire pit is a wonderful addition the last few years. Be sure to spend some time in the large comfortable hammock - easily big enough for 2! The view over the orchard and meadow is so nice - lots of birds, deer and other little critters. It is a peaceful and comfortable place to spend a week.
