Perfect Fall Getaway!
We loved this cottage. It was well-appointed with everything we could possibly need, and more. The location near the lake was perfect for long, scenic nature walks with our dog, and we were also walking distance from town. We enjoyed the sun room and back deck with fire pit each of the three nights we were there. The bed was also very comfortable, which was a huge plus! We can't wait to visit again!

5/5 Excellent

Comfy cottage in great location
We loved our stay-- the cottage was so convenient to Douglas and Saugatuck. Very comfortable for our family of 4. Everything was clean and well maintained. We had deer visitors every morning in the backyard.

5/5 Excellent
