Great for a little family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Little Lucy was the perfect get away for our family of three and our pup. It has a small dock that you can take the charcoal grill out to and grill up a meal. Vicki provides the grill and the charcoal! It is two blocks away from Water St (the ferry to Lake Michigan) and downtown Saugatuck. It's location is ideal.

Vicki was responsive, let us check in early, and was really invested in our family having a great time in Saugatuck.

The only downsides are no shampoo, conditioner, soap, so do bring all of your toiletries from home; and if a family with multiple cars stays in Big Lucy, the driveway becomes a difficult place to maneuver a stroller, pack your belongings, etc.

Can't say enough good things about the coziness and location.

Great location, very comfortable bed, terrific town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog & I stayed at Little Lucy for 10 days in July, the cottage was comfortable, cozy, and had what we needed. The location is excellent, a block away from downtown shopping and restaurants, right on Kalamazoo river. We walked everywhere, barely used our car. We were very grateful for the off street parking, as parking is limited downtown, and the spaces on Lucy Street fill in the evenings. Saugatuck is a great town, and Little Lucy was a great place to stay, we'll definitely be back!

I was expecting for the price something nicer and cleaner. Less spiders and spots on the carpet.

  • 1 of 5

As a pass real estate sale ls person I found the property in disrepair. Painting job made the house look worse. I wanted to scape paint of surfaces and scub the carpets. I'm not afraid of spiders but they freak me out when they are large. Landscaping needed weeded and lawn mowed. Grass at the end of the driveway made it very difficult to back out and driveway with is very narrow to back into. Luckily our stay was without incident. There was no charcoal for the grill but luckily the market was no far away.

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Saugatuck and the Lucy cottage was perfect for our 14 month old child, 5.5 yr old dog, and my wife and I. The house is only about a 5 minute walk from the heart of downtown Saugatuck so it is accessible but also a little bit away from the crowds. The accommodations were great, had everything we needed. We got to meet both Vicki and Bonnie so it was nice to get to know them and learn some of the in's and out's of the town. We even got to meet one of the neighbors which was really nice.

We are not partiers so we really just did a lot of beach going, walks to get coffee (in the morning) and dinner/ice cream in the afternoon, and then early bed times. We actually spent a fair amount of time in the cottage as a result and loved it. Place was clean and Vicki/Bonnie both asked us multiple times if we had everything we needed (so good customer service).

The house is also about a 3 minute walk from our favorite restaurant in town (which is actually the opposite direction from downtown) called the Southerner. We went twice. :)

Other recommendations on food based on our small sample size (not in order of preference):


Wick's was good, but a little pricey (but overall worth it).

Scooters Pizza (soooo good, got the Hawaiian pizza)

Burrito Loco (great food and pretty moderately priced)

Pumpernickel's (they have outside tables reserved for dog owners....awesome).

We wish we went to Wally's, Ida's Red Kitchen, and maybe even the The Butler, but we are happy with where we went.

Ice Cream:

Only go to Kilwin's. Don't waste your time with any other place. We only tried Charlie's after our first time at Kilwin's and just kept going back to Kilwin's after that. Also, don't over think it, just get "Old Fashioned Vanilla." It's amazing and all that you need.


Just go to Uncommon Coffee. They have a walk up window (perfect for the dog owners) where we would order our coffee's and scones, and then sit in the back patio to enjoy our purchases.

Book it and have a great time.
