Cute and comfortable place to spend a long weekend. Ample space and all the necessities needed to cook dinner and socialize. Close to town and convenient to all the sights. Saugutack is a keeper.
Big Blue was a great house for our family. We biked Saugatuck, and both Oval and Douglas beaches. We were able to walk from the house to go out to breakfast in town easily. There was plenty of room to lounge inside the house and out.
Good size 3 bedroom house, sleeps 6 comfortably. Large kitchen and eating area, bbq, internet,and television. Very quiet and still 5 minute walk to downtown, which is a charming area with restaurants and shops, not to speak of scenic view of boats and water. Owners very helpful. Only negatives were lack of central airconditioning (only window airconditioners), slight musty odor probably due to age of home, and undersupplied kitchen.
We've been coming to Saugatuck for years. This year, we had a plus one (our nine month old baby), and had some guests come up for the day to celebrate the Fourth. We had a great time at Big Blue.
The location is great. It's on a quiet street just up the hill from downtown - 5 to 10 min walk to anything you might want to do in downtown Saugatuck.
The house has a lovely wraparound deck in the backyard with plenty of seating, surrounded by a good-sized, well-landscaped lawn. There was also a screen porch which was great for the baby and avoiding bugs at night.
The kitchen is pretty decent size for the cottage.
The stairs up to the second floor (where two of the three bedrooms are located) are a bit steep. If one of your party doesn't move around that well, you might consider locating them in the first floor bedroom, which is very nice in its own right.
Owners are very nice. They both stopped by once over the course of the week and were very communicative and available to address any questions.
We loved our stay at Big Blue! The house was so perfect for our family of five, including three young kids. And Chris, the owner, was friendly and prompt in her communications. She even let me text her! Loved the close proximity to downtown and the great yard/deck/screened in porch. And the basket of toys for our kids was definitely the icing on the cake!
This is a charming property with a great layout. We loved the screened in porch which was perfect for sitting out and enjoying the evenings without worrying about the bugs. This house is in the perfect location, the street is quiet but still very close to town. I give my rating 3 stars because I feel this property could use an overhaul with the cleaning... When we arrived, I had to clean the kitchen cabinets as there was food splattered all down the fronts. There was moldy coffee grounds left in the coffee pot. The bathroom was another area of concern as the shower curtains were old and very dirty. The bathroom sink had toothpaste on the faucet and more mysterious spots on the walls. The washing machine also had dirty rugs and towels left in it. I just wish this property would have been cleaner and better maintained, as I didn't enjoy having to clean the kitchen and bathrooms prior to my family feeling comfortable using them for the week.
