Big Beautiful House

Posted: Jan 1, 2019

Holiday season so no swimming but what a wonderful place for a joyful family get together. We did walked down though the resort to the beach. Photographs do not do justice to the home or surroundings. What a pretty lake and we will return in the summer!

Big and beautiful

What a perfect place for a family get together. The house is magnificent. The resort is great. Lisa was so nice and helpful. Best place we've ever stayed in Michigan.

This was a great place to gather with family. The use of the facilities at the resort is a great asset to this property. Great pool and beach. It was very clean but the grounds around the house were a little overgrown but that might be part of the woodsie feel.

Retreat House 2018

Posted: Jul 27, 2018

We are a family of twelve—ranging in age from three to seventy. This is our third year and the Retreat House and Goshorn Lake Resorts continues to meet our needs. We enjoyed our stay and the house provided ample space for all of us. We were able to use the pool and beach daily. As our grandchildren grow, they seem to find more adventures each year!

This place has it all. Often big fancy place like this is all you get. Sometimes a beach, sometimes a pool, but this has both and playgrounds, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoe, you name it! And helpful manager on site. Unbelievable!

Outstanding Cottage!

Posted: May 23, 2018

Well appointed home, nice furnishings, beautiful atmosphere, large and spacious, very clean and everything you need, from plenty of towels, fine bedding and comfy beds, huge kitchen with every gadget under the sun! We loved staying here and felt the owners were very generous. The home is situated beyond the cottages, just a 5-minute, pleasant walk to the beach area. At the beach there is a small pool to enjoy, a volleyball net, basketball hoops, two docks for swimmers and a separate dock for fishing, even kayaks, canoes, and an assortment of life jackets. Also a pavilion and small playhouse for the little kids to use. Great place for families. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!

Very roomy and comfortable.

Weather wasn't real nice but the place was very good to relax since we couldn't do much outdoors. We would definitely stay again if we come to the area.

Nice off season getaway

Took advantage of off season rates to have this gorgeous huge place to ourselves. Saugatuck is so nice without the crowds and still so beautiful. Luxury for just two but it would be economical with 2 couples and a bargain with 3!

Family weekend at Goshorn Lake Retreat House

Posted: Oct 29, 2017

Our 3 children, spouses and 6 grandchildren gather once a year for our Wing-kend. This house was spacious for all of us to be together. Our little ones loved bike racing in the driveway and spending time down at the water/beach. We shared a turkey dinner, early Thanksgiving for our Seattle Family. Everything went smoothly for the booking and I was pleased to quickly receive my security deposit back. We had 14 and it was challenging to seat all of us around the table for meals. We managed but some of the grandkids are small yet and we could share seats.

The best place we have ever stayed at in Saugatuck

Posted: Sep 29, 2017

We had a family reunion here and it was wonderful. We have also been here in the shoulder season with three couples and it was wonderful. Everyone had their own suite. We plan to come back in the off season just the two of us sometime. It is perfectly located to have your own private space yet close to everything.

Great house for golf weekend with friends

Posted: Sep 22, 2017

House is well equipped to handle the needs of a weekend away with friends.


Posted: Sep 11, 2017

This is the perfect place to have a family reunion. Room for everybody. Has everything you need. The house is beautiful as it is big. And the rates drop after labor day so much we may come back for just the two of us.

nice place to stay

Posted: Aug 21, 2017

Aug.13-15. beautiful house, huge, we had 4 adults and two small children, spent lots of time looking for things to use in the kitchen, some things that apply to the cabins don't apply to the house, it's in a great location to go into Sagatuck or Holland we didn't spend much time hanging around the house because we were there to see the sites. If we come back I would look for a smaller place. For high season I'm sure the price was in line but still on the high side.

This was our 2nd year staying in this house and plan to return! There were 11 of us and all of us had our own space and where happy. The house is gorgeous, has so many amenities and we love spending time there! See you next summer!

Family Reunion

Posted: Jun 9, 2017

Goshorn Lake Retreat House is perfect! Spacious, beautiful, in a lovely setting, and very well kept - with everything you could need available. We were missing a couple things and the staff was very helpful. There is so much to do in the area, our family enjoyed our long weekend. We rented the Retreat House, along with 3 others homes on the property for a family reunion, and everyone raved about the Retreat House - it quickly became our gathering place. Our only complaint - we should have stayed longer!!

What a great place!

Posted: May 27, 2017

We had three couples. Could have handled at least twice as many. Weather wasn't the greatest but we had a fantastic time. The place is HUGE! There is a HUGE TV that we hooked up to a laptop with the HDMI cord and watched the Tigers with Fox Sports to go. The cable TV is basic but the internet excellent. If you don't bring a laptop it is a smart TV with amazon, netflix, hulu, etc. And there are two more big TVs upstairs and basement! All have Blue Ray. The place is beautiful. There is a Weber grill outside, George Foreman in the screened in porch and a HUGE kitchen with everything you need. We ate too much! If the weather was better there is a place for a campfire and the resort has a pool and a beach. We did walk down to the beach and took in the view of Saugatuck dunes. Of course the day we left the sun came out and was beautiful. We hated to leave but look forward to coming back!!!

Great house with a lot of space to spread out and very good assistance from Lisa whenever we needed anything... We hope to return!

Had a large family gathering here and it was absolutely perfect.

Manager Response: Quaint Cottages is very glad you enjoyed your stay and our services. We hope to see you again very soon!

Great home base for golf weekend

Perfect place for a family get together. I see off season rates a low may come back for a couples get away. Absolutely beautiful home nicely appointed and clean. Nicest place we've ever stayed in Michigan.

This palce ROCKS

Perfect house for a big group. Very clean and has everything that you need. It is a great location, very quiet outside and also very close to all the activities. Would stay 10000% again.


Posted: Aug 17, 2016

Huge home. Better than we expected. Very clean. Towels. Enough toilet paper. Just great. Only thing is I wish the outside was as clean as the inside. The patio was so dirty. We didnt really end up hanging out out there :-/ Also the pull out couch bed in the den was so uncomfortable. The upstairs couch bed came with a foam mattress you can throw on for extra comfort. But only that one. I wish all the beds had that option.

Greatest Family Vacation Ever!

Posted: Jul 29, 2016

The Retreat House exceeded our expectations. We were a party of twelve with six adults and six kids from 10 to 17 months. The beach and pool were quiet and provided enough entertainment for all. The house gave each family privacy with enough room for us all to cook, eat, and socialize. The fire pit was an added bonus! We are looking forward to a return visit next year!!!

12 of us stayed at Goshorn Retreat House recently and had a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful, huge, and offered so many amenities that we didn't get to use everything even! There were a couple minor things needing attention like a bathtub draining very slow (probably needs a clean out), a missing tub stopper, peeling wallpaper in downstairs bathroom, ripped screen door in porch, but didn't make us any less happy to be there! The thermostat in the master bedroom controlled the upstairs bedroom which was odd and there are so many light switches we had to try everything to figure out what's what. No matter however! We loved the beauty of the house, the space, the huge property and easy walk to Lake Goshorn. We plan on returning next summer and can't wait!


Posted: Jun 11, 2016

This is the nicest place we have ever stayed in Saugatuck. We had a family get together and it was perfect for the event. Will return!

Best overal situation in Saugatuck.

The place is beautiful and HUGE! Great location with access to Goshorn lake resort, dune rides, bike trail into town, Felt and state park close by, blue star zip over to Douglas. Off season rates a bargain. Everything is perfect!

Retreat House Stay

Posted: Oct 17, 2015

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at the retreat house. This house was clean, comfortable and spacious. The pictures online are great but don't do this property justice. We Hav stayed at different properties at Goshorn and this is, by far, our favorite place to date. The only thing that wasn't in the house was sheets for the sofa sleepers but we made it work.

Manager Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize for the sheets. A call to the number provided would have corrected the issue right away. Thank you for staying with us!

Lab Retreat

Posted: Sep 1, 2015

Our lab took a booked the Goshorn Lake Retreat House for our annual lab retreat and we had a wonderful stay! There was plenty of room for the 11 of us to sleep, congregate, or have a little time to ourselves in separate locations in the house. The comfortable living room furniture made our lab presentations more enjoyable and the large kitchen was perfect for preparing delicious meals for all of us. We also enjoyed grilling and having a fire in the fire pit. The large front yard was perfect for our badminton net and some lab members enjoyed shooting hoops in the driveway. We were glad that we could use the amenities at the Goshorn resort, and though it was too cool for swimming, we all took out boats on the peaceful lake and played shuffle board. Overall we had a great time and really enjoyed a fun getaway from the lab. Thanks!

The house worked out great. Love the 3 separate sleeping/ bath areas. Also appreciated the use of the garage door opener. Could not find the tv remote. Not much selection and wanted to stream Netflix from my iPad but couldn't change the input on the tv. Overall I come back again

Girls weekend at Retreat House

Posted: Jul 6, 2015

The house was wonderful with sooooo much room that 11 of us girls had our own space to sleep! Plenty of bathrooms and space to play silly games and eat together... It was a great weekend and everyone was happy to have been a part of it! Thank you for sharing your place with us!
