From the moment you pull into the winding, tree-kissed drive, you’ll immediately fall in love with Wildwood.
Just 5 minutes south of adorable Saugatuck/Douglas and minutes from the beaches of Lake Michigan, Wildwood’s five secluded acres has room to wander or even get lost. Our family relishes every moment spent together here and we think you'll love it too.
Enjoy morning coffee surrounded by maple trees and white pines, bonfires in the evenings and hot-tubing under the stars. Wildwood isn’t just a house, it’s a retreat. Ideal for families and friends looking to get away.
Warmly imagined with time together in mind, Wildwood’s decor is simple and yet eclectic. Inside, a mixture of local antiques, vintage finds and warm furnishings beg for you to leave behind whatever waits for you at home.
Upstairs, a magnificent gourmet, farm-style kitchen opens to the dining area seating up to 12 as well as the home’s sitting room, complete with wood-burning fireplace for cool weather and Sonos for easily plugging in your favorite music.
Inspired by hunting lodges, the upstairs sitting room's twin chesterfield sofas beg for quiet chit-chat next to a roaring fire over cocktails.
The kitchen features a 5-burner stove, stainless steel appliances, a deep farmhouse sink, and everything else essential to throw together a feast.
The outdoor deck has a long dining table for when Michigan presents its best self. Nearby, a couple Adirondack chairs encourage sitting for chats or reading.
Each bedroom takes its name from a different national park and is decorated accordingly, anchored by a warm Pendelton wool blanket. Each bed has 400 thread count sheets for a luxurious night's sleep.
The Badland's Room, the upper floor master suite, features a lovely king-sized bed and massive picture window so you can enjoy the natural setting outside. The ensuite bathroom includes a jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower.
Just across the hall, The Acadia Room features a queen bed. Between you’ll find guest bathroom no. 1 with tub/shower combo as well as a washer and dryer should you need to do a load or two mid-stay.
As you head downstairs, notice the massive framed American flag. It belonged to our grandfather who served in WW2 and is one of our favorite details.
Downstairs' main living room has the most cushy, giant sectional you’ll ever meet, and may never want to leave! Inspired by our love of winter & aprés ski, the vintage snow shoes, skis and 1950s & 60s paint-by-number winter scenes on the walls add to the coziness of the room, making it perfect for movie night with Xfinity TV, Netflix, Hulu. If it’s blustery out, squeeze together for a good game night or a shuffleboard tournament. There’s a variety of games in the upstairs closet.
Also downstairs is the Yellowstone Room. Its fun, twin set of bunkbeds — great for kids or those staying sans significant other — are sturdy, holding adults up to 225 lbs. Down the hallway you’ll find full bathroom no. 3 with a shower and then the Glacier Room which also has a queen bed.
Around the corner from the sectional is the sleeping nook with a fold-out full sized bed. Careful not to wake your friends up as you walk out onto the lower deck and its 7-person hot tub just outside.
If you wander a bit into the woods, you’ll find one of our favorite spots, the fire pit. Surrounded by adirondack chairs, there’s nothing better than e Wildwood is chock full of ‘em.
Should you want to explore, Wildwood is also located near some of the best southwestern Michigan has to offer. The house is just minutes from some of the most beautiful Lake Michigan beaches. It's also around the corner from farmer's stands and down the road from Apple Orchards, Vineyards and Hard Cider Mills. Antique stores dot the countryside. The roads are perfect for cycling, running or simply taking a nice drive, and if you've never been to the area you'll be shocked and thrilled by the number of delicious restaurants, bars and shops. There's so much to do... or not do, which ever you prefer.
We hope you’ll bring your family and friends to Wildwood. It’s yours to enjoy.
