About Sam Farnsworth

Thanks for checking out my home! I am a proud 10 year resident of Saugatuck Township, and am excited that you are considering visiting our beautiful area. When my home is not rented, I love maintaining and enjoying my property, as well as the many great friends I have come to know in this fantastic community.

What makes this house unique

I have worked very hard over the last 7 years to improve and make this house the home that is now is. While at first glance it might seem like many other houses, after spending a few nights I hope you will agree with my friends and me that it is indeed a very welcoming and charming home, and that its privacy and the natural beauty around it makes it so very special.

Beautiful, Secluded Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are beautiful and well maintained. The kitchen is totally stocked! Great place to get away (but close to Saugatuck) for a family or couples vacation. The only thing missing from this property is a hot tub! We'll definitely come back when we get the chance.

Great Place to Rent

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend renting Fern Gully. The outside is beautiful with ferns and a lovely garden. There is a fire pit, a deck, and an outside eating area. The inside is just as nice. My first impression was how well decorated the home is and how neat and clean. It is very well equipped and has a great kitchen. Sam was very helpful and will answer any questions you may have. I definitely would rent Fern Gully again.

Loved this place! Getaway and family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I planned a two day getaway at the VERY last minute. We'd heard so many great things about the beach towns in Michigan so we starting planning and researching the area. Needless to say, with last minute planning comes booking issues. Lots of places were booked or required a minimum week stay. But luckily I found Fern Gully! Sam immediately responded to my inquiry just as I was beginning to lose hope and had to think of plan B for what to do with my family visiting from Florida for two days.

We made the right choice! Upon our arrival, the home was so inviting and amenities far exceeded our expectations. Sam has thought of every single detail. Two days were not enough. My fiancée and I plan to visit very soon! Thanks for all that you did to make our stay so pleasant and inviting (and also making sure the bikes were good to go!)
