Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Great cabin on the lake
Although the weather didn't cooperate for most of our stay - the cabin was perfect for our family. It's close to Saugatuck and Holland with plenty of activities. The hot tub was a big feature given the cold weather. I was also pleasantly surprised by all of the toys, books, etc for our small children to play with during their stay. Would definitely recommend for a family stay on a beautiful lake.

5/5 Excellent

Ideal Getaway
I along with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson spent several enjoyable days at this cottage in August. Lots of pleasant, comfortable space inside the cottage, a large backyard for our grandson to play in, and a lovely patio that offered a spectacular view of Hutchins Lake. Nice outdoor seating, a fire pit and hot tub. We all thought it was one of the most restful vacations ever with ideal amenities. We'll hope to reserve again. Thanks so much!

3/5 Okay

Better Choices for the Price
We've stayed at many VRBO properties, and many for less than what we were charged per night at this property. To be blunt, the house is a little ragged. We found many chipped plates, silver material pealing from the utensils, etc. Never stayed at a property where coffee filters and laundry detergent are not provided. Beach towels are not provided. The house capacity per the listing is 8, yet there's lounge seating for maybe 4 in the "living room" . Again, much better choices out there!!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect lakehouse
Our group of 8 (6 adults, 2 children) had a great weekend at Bluegill Hill. We had eveything we needed inside and out and the location is perfect. The road separating the house from the lake was busier than I originally envisioned, but it wasn't a problem. The lake was shallow near the dock, perfect for swimming and kayaking, and the views were beautiful. The hottub and firepit were ready to go with plenty of fire wood available. Close to Saugatuck but away from the crowds. I would definitely recommend and return to the property.

4/5 Good

Property Management/Overall Experience
Check-in: 1) the code was wrong that was sent and good thing we didn't arrive after 8 pm like we anticipated or we wouldn't have been able to check in (see next point on timeliness of response) 2) the floors were dirty - mopped twice, kitchen rug had strawberry/berry squashed into it, fridge had syrup leftovers on one of the shelves, the vacuum roller wasn't functional it had so much hair on it. Contacted that day and didn't get a response until the following day. The manager Ethan said we left it on the general VM line. When we looked thru all the emails/table brochures, the number was the same number we called. Took my family about 1.5 hours to clean it (including vacuum) to an acceptable level. In the conversation with Ethan, he said he would have the cleaners call me an explain how they clean the floor. My response was this is your job to listen to what I'm telling you so you can rectify this, not me! In response to the vacuum wasn't working. His response was it's the owners vacuum. Not sure what the property manager's responsibility is. Overall we loved the place. Definitely will be returning but will factor in time to clean it ourselves and also be there before the 8 pm deadline on check in else we could be locked out.
