What makes this house unique

Our house sits a little over 100' from the street. You can sit out on the front patio and watch people walking to and from Lake Michigan. It's quite private and quiet.

The woods out back are so beautiful and we often see deer walking through the trees. The entire lot is over 350' deep.

There is central air and forced-air heat, so it is a four-season home.

During summer months, we subscribe to The Mosquito Squad. This has been very beneficial to the owners and to our guests helping you be able to enjoy the outdoors during summer nights sitting out on the patio. If you want to know more about The Mosquito Squad, please visit their website. They use safe materials. If a service is scheduled during any of our guests stay, we will give you advance notice. https://www.mosquitosquad.com/

We have a local cleaning service clean the house before and after each our guests arrive. Should you need any assistance during your stay and if the owner is unavailable, their contact information is within the Welcome to Normandie book.

We also have a Sonos Connect hooked into our stereo system. If you are unfamiliar with Sonos, please look at their website www.sonos.com. If you have downloaded the Sonos app, you can connect with our stereo system to wirelessly play music from your smartphone or computer devices through the stereo system speakers in the front living room.

Fabulous cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Great getaway pad. Fabulous cottage. Easy cycle to Saugatuck and the brewery. Great sunsets at the top of the road. Quiet neighborhood so relaxing was easy. Well appointed and very comfortable. Would have no issues recommending this place as a great holiday cottage. Owner, David, was great in offering advice on local attractions.

Nice vacation home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed our time immensely. The home has comfortable furnishings and a well-stocked kitchen. We loved the proximity to the beach, which is a short walk down the street.

The location is perfect: a short walk to the beach and to Douglas, great bike riding along the lake, and good restaurants. House was well stocked, very quiet, and comfortable

Great Rental Property!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the privacy and the clean and welcoming cottage this rental provided. The property owner was extremely helpful prior and during the time we stayed with questions regarding the facility and area activities. Literally, everything we needed for a week's stay was available to us from a complimentary bottle of wine to fresh coffee beans for morning brews each day. We would definitely rent this unit again!
