Our third stay here and another home run. Love the cottage, location, parking and Saugutuck itself. Already planning our return for next year. That says it all.

Our stay

Posted: Sep 18, 2023

Chalet on the Lake is a beautiful community that offers so many fun things to do! I love it there. Overall, our stay in Chalet 71 was great, but I found myself having to do quite a bit of cleaning before using some of the dishes, silverware, cookware, etc. Though I didn’t mind doing this, items in the chalet should have been completely taken care of before we arrived. Nonetheless, a great place to be!

A Perfect Place

Posted: Sep 16, 2023

This was our first time renting a house instead of staying in a hotel, and it was wonderful! The view was great, the neighborhood was very peaceful, and the interior of the cottage was very nice. This place is best for 2 people. (There were only 2 chairs at the kitchen table, etc). We appreciated the box fans (white noise to sleep to), fancy mattress, dishwasher, comfy couch, smart tv, gas fireplace, and plenty of towels and other supplies. One thing to keep in mind is that in the fall, acorns occasionally drop on the metal roof, so maybe bring earplugs for sleeping if you're sensitive to noise. It also would have been nice to have a dresser or something in the bedroom, but we hung up our clothes in the closet and kept our socks and undies in the suitcase on the stand at the end of the bed, so it worked out fine. Adding curtains would help with feelings of privacy, but you can't see the neighbors from the windows anyway. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Great getaway

Posted: Sep 16, 2023

Your cottage was well appointed and close to everything. We would stay here again! Thanks!!!

Great and Clean!

Posted: Sep 15, 2023

My group had such a great time. It was my first time here and I will definitely be coming back.


Posted: Sep 15, 2023

Our stay at Harbor View was absolutely amazing, when we opened the door we were beside ourselves. My Wife has a phobia when it comes to cleanliness and she was extremely satisfied, she loved all the white linen to her white accessories are very important and she was very impressed. We would definitely love to reserve Harbor View in the future. Thank you so much Ethan!

Perfect Place

Great location to food, drink, shopping. Easy parking, condo exactly as pictured and described. Clean, tidy, everything we needed was provided.

Comfortable lodging in a great location

Posted: Sep 13, 2023

Wally´s Annex was clean and comfortable. The living/dining room is spacious and the rest of the rooms are compact but very functional. The TV and WiFi both worked well and the bed was comfortable . There is limited space between the bed and wall on one side . It was very quiet when we were there but if the open west side of Sienna Cafe was filled with people, it could be noisy. One of this place´s best features is its location which is near the water front and within easy walking distance of the stores and restaurants.


Posted: Sep 12, 2023

Had everything you need-beach, pool, activities for the kids. Wish we didn't have to go downstairs to get to the bathroom (my husband doesn't get around easily), but overall excellent value for a family vacation.

Unit 12

Posted: Sep 12, 2023

The location was great. The unit it self could use overall improvements. New window treatments that actually cover the windows properly upstairs. The room with the AC unit has a pull shut curtain that covers over the AC unit!! Another AC unit in the 2nd bedroom should be a must! New downstairs furniture that isn’t dirty old and suspension on sofa shot. A decent kitchen table not from 1972. Maybe a bench style table. Bathroom plastic shade and valance dirty and old. For the money that is charged for a three night stay-these things should have been provided. I also don’t think for the money we should have to strip the beds.

Great view and accommodations. Our second visit and we will likely return in the future. Thanks!

Clean, comfortable and close to the pool!

Posted: Sep 10, 2023

We have been coming to the Chalets for over 20 years every Labor Day weekend, but our first time in Chalet #39. This chalet is simple, clean, in a great location near the pool, and has comfy queen size beds. That is all we needed!

Quiet and Charming

Perfect location for enjoying the area. Home is lovely and very clean. Would definitely stay here again!

Quaint Cottage Chalet #8

Posted: Sep 7, 2023

The chalet location directly on the beach at the breaker wall gave a magnificent view. Our 3rd day we had storms and the wave action was beautiful. There is access to two small beaches that sit in calm coves. The entry area grounds were perfectly kept. The ponds were clean and tho I did not use the pools (post Labor Day) they too were very well kept. The cottage was clean.Counters and sinks that can't handle heat are incovenient. Over allNeeds updating, particularly the shower. The breaker box continually tripping off for the air conditioners in the bed room level, when it was 89 degrees, definitely marred was was otherwise a pleasant stay. I would recommend but feel some sort of adjustment is due me for the electricity repeated going out in the upper level.The only 'solution' I could find was for one of the bedrooms to go without air, and that was my bedroom so my guests didn't suffer.

Quaint cottages

Amazing location, very clean. Made great use of all the space including the hot tub. Walking distance to downtown was fantastic.

Great little getaway mini oasis

Posted: Sep 7, 2023

Perfect for me, myself and I. Close to both downtown Saugatuck and Douglas. Two beaches to choose from. Couldn't ask for more!

Feedback regarding our stay at Chalet #2

Posted: Sep 4, 2023

As I mentioned in my feedback re: Chalet #1, I have been coming to the Chalets for years. Our family property borders the Chalets to the North. I remember when Bill Howard built the Chalets in the 60's. The original Chalets on the lake were extremely well built considering the winter storms. The positives of Chalet #2: location (close to the public beach), very well decorated (homey atmosphere), clean and very comfortable beds.

feedback for stay at Chalet #1

Posted: Sep 4, 2023

I have been staying at the Chalets for many years. Our family property is directly North of the Chalets. I remember when Bill Howard built the Chalets in the 60's. The original Chalets closest to the lake are extremely well built. Re: Chalet #1...for the amount of the rental fee, the interior is poorly decorated, and the beds are very uncomfortable. In contrast, I also rented Chalet #2 at the same time which has a beautifully decorated interior as well as very comfortable beds. The location of #1 is the attraction because of the closeness to the public beach.

We had a very pleasant stay at The Swallow last week. The weather was perfect and we were able to do all the things that the area offered. Thanks for sharing your place with our family


Posted: Sep 4, 2023

We recently stayed for a getaway, and it was perfect ! The kids had a blast and want to come back next year! The chalet could use some updating, but we enjoyed our stay!


Posted: Sep 1, 2023

Clean, comfortable, great location. Close enough to downtown Saugatuck to walk but away from the noise. Would definitely book again.

Second year in a row my sister's and I had a girls vacation. We absolutely love it here. Chalet is comfortable. Everyone staying in other chalets are respectful. Just an amazing place to get a way.

Can’t beat the location, view and sound of the waves

Posted: Aug 25, 2023

Location location location …. While the inside is dated we would rent the place again without question. The view is stunning. You do not have people walk in front of your deck either. Bed very comfortable. Personally we were not there to sit inside so we were good with what was provided.

Comfy cottage and great location

Posted: Aug 25, 2023

We enjoyed our stay at the Lucky Lucy cottage. It was clean and comfortable. The location is great, just a few steps from town but in a quiet neighborhood. Parking was a little tight, there was a reserved spot, but 3 big SUVs in the driveway made access somewhat difficult. The table and chairs out front had a great view of a Ford Explorer fender.

Good week for the family

Summer vacation stay

Posted: Aug 24, 2023

We had a nice time. Loved the new pool!

Great view

Posted: Aug 23, 2023

We loved the view and proximity to the beach. But it would be really nice if the Owners could use some of the huge rent $$ to replace the chipped, stained, gross toilet and the old refrigerator. And maybe fix some of the screens so the bugs stay outside.


Posted: Aug 23, 2023

Summer Vacation

Posted: Aug 23, 2023

I rented both #25 and #26– I was very happy with both. They were both very clean and well supplied. I loved the huge deck for added living space. The grounds were well maintained. Great place for a family vacation.

Summer Vacation

Posted: Aug 23, 2023

The stay was lovely. The cabin was clean and well-supplied. The beach was beautiful. We went to the pool everyday and it was well maintained. We rented both #25 and #26. We loved having the spacious deck for outdoor living.

Easy spot to stay

Posted: Aug 22, 2023

We enjoyed our time at this unit. The overall stay was nice and an easy way to get away. The only note for someone staying is that you will likely hear the neighbors if they are active/loud. So bring a noise machine if you’re a light sleeper :)

NC Visitor

Posted: Aug 21, 2023

Perfect location for visiting Saugatuck. Only steps to everything in the village. Agency staff was prompt in solving an issue with the TV. Dishwasher was not operational. We had to hand wash the dishes we used. We would definitely book this unit if we return.

Yearly summer vacation

Posted: Aug 20, 2023

Unit was very nice and updated. Provided everything you would need. A lot of the units for rent are very old and not updated. This one is clean, comfortable and updated. Will definitely stay there again. Only drawback is the distance to the beach. But close to the pool!

Great little place

Posted: Aug 18, 2023

We spent a weekend here just my husband and I and had a wonderful time. The pictures on the website were taken before a more recent update. It’s very nice. It just looks different than the pictures. It’s very very clean, comfortable and perfect distance from downtown Saugatuck to bike or walk. We will definitely be back.

no security is noticeable

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

The chalet was clean, but it is noticeable that security is no longer on site... someone shot of fireworks one night and we must have seen 5-8 different dogs on the property. There was even dog poop left in the parking lot near our chalet. You may want to reconsider this (apparent) cost cutting measure

The View

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

Upon arrival, the chalet looked as expected. Our deck was incredible! After unpacking a bit we noticed the kitchen cabinet shelves were not completely cleaned out. One of the cabinets above the sink contained a layer of dead gnats -- we avoided using that cabinet all together. Once we worked our way to the bathroom to unpack we noticed the corners of the shower floor were covered in mold. Dark mold. The shower became the space to stand on a plastic bag and rinse off the sand ONLY. When we needed to bathe we felt more comfortable using a different bathroom at a nearby relatives Chalet. Given that the check in time is 4:30pm for the "strict cleaning schedule" this was VERY frustrating to walk into. Understandably, we had neighbors. However, we witnessed our neighbors access our Chalet SEVERAL times by opening our screen door and walking in or by accessing the deck reserved for Chalet #36 without our approval. It became very uncomfortable during our stay.

Chalet 94

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

Our experience was great, as always. The new pool area is wonderful. If you have kids of different ages you can watch them in the kiddie pool and the big pool. The chalet's kitchen left a little to be desired. There was one large plastic glass and one small plastic glass. The rug was filthy with stains over every inch of it. It really needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Accommodations are dated

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

Much needed update. Bathroom light was broken; replaced the day before we left. The pools and location are ideal but mattresses and amenities need serious updating.

Our Stay at Chalet #29

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

Please have the cleaning staff clean and disenfect the chalet a little better, for almost $3,000.00 a week it might be cleaned better.

Family vacation August 5-12, 2023 Chalet 18

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

We have stayed in this same chalet for a number of years. We love the view and the deck. It would be nice if some upgrades were made though. There’s an abundance of tongs! A hand mixer would have been nice for our whip cream made for birthday cake (we left an old hand held beater for the people). There was no umbrella for the picnic table which was a real problem. And all the patio chairs were gone so we had to tell visitors to bring their own. It was nice to see new curtains in bathroom, long needed, and bedrooms.

Chalet 12

Posted: Aug 17, 2023

Great view, nice property. Host had beach life toys and accessories available.

dirty outdated Chalet 64

Posted: Aug 16, 2023

We have been coming here for 20 years and have stayed in several Chalets but this one was the most dirty and outdated. We would like to keep coming just not at this one. The grounds I have to say are wonderful and clean, we also loved the new security entry system.

Great stay

Posted: Aug 16, 2023

Cottage was roomy and comfortable. Location was great-short walking distance from the downtown action


Posted: Aug 13, 2023

Wonderful location, cute atmosphere, and so very clean! Not a single complaint ! Absolutely will stay in Downtown View next time we come to Saugatuck! Thanks for a wonderful weekend stay!

Some improvements over 2022 stay

Posted: Aug 10, 2023

Owners finally added screen door to back door. Boards replaced on deck are not as thick as other decking so it made for inconsistent walking. Many more boards in need of repair. Both double bed mattresses sag towards the middle so we had to sleep on the couch sometimes. Enough silverware and plates for 6. Both skillets missing handles (reported this last year). Needs a large pot for spaghetti. No room to put our stuff in the closet on first floor because there was a broken chair and other items piled up inside the door. We bring coasters with us as there is no place to place drinks except on the floor due to no adequate end tables. Nice floor! Owners need to throw out mismatched storage containers in cabinets. Gas grill is nice. Shouldn't charcoal grill be removed from deck due to fire regulations?

Chalet #8

Posted: Aug 10, 2023

Great stay! The touch pad system was easy and efficient to use. The whole Chalet grounds were well maintained. Pools were wonderful. Cottage right in the lake . . Priceless! Had a great week!

Hayes family

Posted: Aug 9, 2023

We had an absolute blast. Our daughters favorite place in the world. They are already asking when can we go back. Perfect location to go the beach or the pools. Hope to be able to rent the same week for years to come.

Chalet 52

Posted: Aug 9, 2023

The chalet was very clean this year! However, this chalet has the original carpet and something growing out of the wall in the bathroom. There is also the same hole in the screened in porch there was last year. This cabin could use work. Our family stays in five other cabins throughout the compound, and 52 is always in the worst shape. I try every year to secure a different chalet than 52. An honest review. As always we love the gorgeous sunsets and the new pool. We also used the tennis and pickle ball courts.


Posted: Aug 8, 2023

Hummingbird Cottage met all our needs!...location was perfect for walking.


Posted: Aug 8, 2023

the airconditioner was loud. we had moderate temperatures so it worked but if it was 5 degrees warmer it would not have met the needs to stay comfortable.


Posted: Aug 7, 2023

Such a wonderful stay

Posted: Aug 6, 2023

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at captains cove. The house is so cozy and the pool was wonderful. Thank you for having your property available for us to rent.


Posted: Aug 6, 2023

Everything was perfection!!! So clean, so beautiful, and well kept! The perfect place to make memories. Also very close to everything! You won't be disappointed!

Chalet #2, June 22 - 29

Posted: Aug 5, 2023

The Chalet wasn't as well-equipped as we had hoped. There wasn't much silverware and the front bedroom AC was super loud. The owner replaced it on the second day of our stay. We also discovered the kitchen sink was leaking. The front bedroom window leaked horribly during a bad thunderstorm and the water was running directly into the new AC unit. The downstairs window by the stairs leaked too. There were a lot of bugs in the Chalet and we're not sure if it was from the water leaking in. I should have checked into the view as we didn't realize that the hill in the front completely blocked the view of the lake. We had a great time overall but wouldn't recommend renting # 2.

The Views!!

Posted: Aug 3, 2023

Outstanding. Loved waking up to the waves.


Posted: Jul 28, 2023

Great location. A second bathroom upstairs would have been a great improvement. The chalet is a bit dated, and the furnishings are very worn. Overall we had a very nice time. You do a great job on keeping your grounds and pools in excellent condition

Girls Weekend

Posted: Jul 28, 2023

A few things... -The stay was great. -I left a blow dryer in the lower floor bathroom. I have a boat right by the location. Can I stop by to get it? -I have a property that I would like managed. Can you contact me? 616-915-0111

Great view

Posted: Jul 27, 2023

Enjoyed the view of the lake and the bathroom upstairs. Chalet has potential. Disappointed by: the downstairs ceiling fan did not work, no teaspoons (had to buy some and left them), many lights burned out, bathroom shower knob very hard to operate, cabinets and shelves filled with misc. items, refrigerator door handle missing, inside drawer duct taped. Been coming to Chalets for past 40 years. Would not return to this unit.

Our Home Away From Home

Posted: Jul 27, 2023

We had a wonderful two week stay in #36. We have stayed in this chalet for over 50 years, 4 generations of us, and consider it our home away from home. It is a perfect fit for us. A bonus this year was the comfy new living room furniture. Thank you for this upgrade! The pool was clean and just the right temp, and the beach was especially enjoyable. The landscaping was lovely and we liked the new gate more car tags or keys to lose. We look forward to returning for the same two weeks next year. ( It would be great to find the front door and screen door replaced when we get there. Flooding under the door is a problem when it rains, and the screen door is very difficult to open and close.) We can't wait to come back! Thank you!

The Best Chalet Ever!!

Posted: Jul 27, 2023

We rented Chalet #76 for our vacation. It was one of the best Chalet's in the whole area. Location was in great proximity to the pool, courts and other activities. The layout of this particular Chalet was awesome and very roomy. We loved the outdoor patio and new furniture. It had everything we needed for a wonderful week.

Great stay @ The Blue Whale!

Posted: Jul 24, 2023

Everything was as expected. The house was clean & nicely decorated. The bedrooms were all nice with comfortable beds. The master bath was nice with a walk in shower. The second bathroom was fine except the bathtub made into a shower felt claustrophobic with the shower curtain all the way around the tub. And nowhere to put your shampoo or soap. The front porch with 4 rockers and 2 additional chairs was perfect for our group of 5. Very comfortable house with lots of hooks & cubbies to put your things. Easy 10 minute walk to town with very manageable up-hill climb returning to house. The instructions for checking out were fine but we did feel the garbage could be taken care of by the clean up crew. Definitely recommend this cute house & would rent again without hesitation!

The house was lovely and very spacious. We would highly recommend it. The air conditioning was not very accurate. The microwave seemed to take a long time to heat things up.

Great location

Posted: Jul 22, 2023

Could use some upgrades with carpet, deck ramp and reinforcements. Furniture indoor is not very comfortable and could use more furniture on deck. Overall nice accommodations for families.

Perfect location

Posted: Jul 21, 2023

Saugatuck is where you go to "feel summer", and this place is perfect for location. Its right on Water Street and Hoffman, and absolutely everything you want to see starts just as you leave your door! In my opinion, one can stay outside of town to save a few dollars but you'll have to drive in, go through a lot of waiting to find a parking space, not have easy bathroom access or a place to nap while awaiting the nightlife -- or -- just pay a little more for a fantastic apartment where you park once and enjoy all the town has to offer. This is a second floor apartment and it is just right for two people. Everything you need is there (plenty of towels for like, 12 people), and if you don't want to bother making coffee in the morning just go downstairs out the front door and within 60 seconds you can be at any one of four coffee/breakfast shops. Everything you need to see is an easy walk. The host has excellent communication, and the unit is super clean.

The Hummingbird Cottage, Saugatuck, MI

Posted: Jul 20, 2023

The cottage was absolutely ideal for us as our friends were almost across the street in the their condo. I truly didn't realize that it was a 2 storey unit, possibly from the photos, but our major challenge was that the bathroom and bedroom were a floor apart. We are 83 and 76 and without going into detail, it was a bit stressful for us. The only other challenge was just the one closet which was also downstairs. We found the cottage immaculate, the bedroom, AC very satisfactory and the kitchen had all the appliances, etc. that we needed. Thank you. We will be back to a one floor unit going forward. This lake town should be the envy of any lake town. We really enjoyed ourselves and your accommodation. Mary and Dick Canada. I just relook at your site. It explains everything very well. It was completely my mistake for not noticing the floor plan. I think I was just so excited that you were able to accommodate us. Please resubmit my note. Again it was a pleasure!

Great Time

Posted: Jul 20, 2023

Our experience was awesome! The chalet is located close to the pond and a beautiful pool. We enjoyed our time going to the beach and pool. The chalet has a nice sunroom that was a great spot to relax at the end of the day.


Posted: Jul 20, 2023

We loved this chalet. Everything about it was perfect

Great stay!

Posted: Jul 20, 2023

Loved staying in this chalet. It's extremely convenient and a great place to stay in Michigan. My only wish is that it would update the furniture so it was a bit more comfortable. Also, providing a few extra towels would be helpful as there is no laundry in the chalet. Otherwise an amazing place to stay!

Chalet All Day!

Posted: Jul 20, 2023

We love coming every summer to stay at the Chalets! We have stayed in 3 different chalets now and #16 takes the cake! No stairs to climb to load in and out, yet there is still a great sunset view from the back deck. Speaking of the deck, it has an umbrella dining table, a few side tables, and a sitting bench. Beautiful flowers separate the space from the other chalet. #16 is right off the main access to the beach and just a short walk. A smaller playground and pool are right out the front door. The chalet itself has been nicely updated without taking away from any of the chalet charm. Working A/C on both floors, clean bath and kitchen with all the necessary cooking supplies. Charcoal grill available outside. We will hope to book again in the future!

Perfect for a Family Vacation

Posted: Jul 19, 2023

We stayed at the Farmhouse for the 4th of July week and it was a BLAST! The home is central to downtown, restaurants, shops, the park, etc. At any given time, there were around 7 of us staying in the farmhouse- it was so spacious and comfortable that we didn't feel like we were on top of one another. We spent a lot of time out on the covered porch (yay, no mosquito bites!) playing games and visiting. We would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a cozy, spacious, and central spot to stay while visiting Saugatuck!

The room was fine. It had everything we needed. Walking distance to everything. I was concerned about no private parking on site but it turned out we were able to find parking. Especially if we arrived back at the place later in the evening.


Posted: Jul 16, 2023

Very cute place. Great location. We walked everywhere. Even to the beach. Up the over 300 steps at Mt. Baldhead Park and then down the dunes to Oval Beach. It is do able :) Clean Cozy Perfect for two. THANKS

As always the chalet experience was great. Grounds and pool were perfect. Chalet 64 needs some attention, sliding glass door needs replacing, coffee maker doesn’t work and there wasn’t a blender. Air conditioning on the ground floor would be nice.

Locals love it!

Posted: Jul 9, 2023

We are locals from Stevensville and we needed extra sleeping space for a family reunion.The chalets were perfect! We were tickled by the many updates, they are comfortable and roomy. With 3 pools to choose from, playgrounds, and tennis courts, plus the private beach access it’s perfect for a getaway and families with kids. A much better option to a hotel; and you just can’t beat the view of the Lake! Bring your own towels and no laundry are the only drawbacks. We luckily had laundry access with family in town, but it would be harder without it. We’re definitely coming back next trip!

Chalet 23

Good location and amenities. However we had a rodent problem early evening one day so we purchased traps and caught the mouse. Property operation person came the next day to set traps. No reoccurrence of the problem

Clean, great location. Have been renting since 1998 and will continue to rent in the future.

Frying pan???

Posted: Jul 6, 2023

We've been staying in Mrs. Henry's chalet for years and it's always clean and in good condition. This year my wife went to make an omlet and there was no frying pan. Many pots, no pan. Everything else was ok.

Families stayed in different chalets. Ours was by far the most dated and darkest.

Fran Lavin

Posted: Jul 5, 2023

Three drawbacks. There were no larger cooking pots. The largest was big enough to boil an egg. The coffee maker was very dirty in the space were water is placed. We did not use it. We were disappointed to see there was not basic cable - only streaming services. We understand that this last item is very much up to the chalet owner. Otherwise, we enjoyed the chalet's greatly. This is our 24-25 consecutive year and family reunion. Thank you.

Great Saugatuck Cottage!

Posted: Jul 4, 2023

My family of five stayed here for three nights and it was perfect. The cottage is very clean and spacious, and the location was perfect. We loved being able to walk downtown so easily. We also enjoyed the screened-in porch. My one suggestion is that power strips/extension cords be added to the master bedroom - it was impossible to reach the outlets behind the bed.

Wonderful Stay

Posted: Jul 2, 2023

We were so glad to be back again after a year away. Everything was as excellent as it has always been during our past visits. The home was immaculate as usual and feels like home. One small glitch with the smoke/co detector was fixed immediately and that was most appreciated. Thank you Ethan! This home will continue to be on our annual visit list even though we moved from Chicago to Colorado! Love it!

Sunsets from the deck!! Absolutely Stunning

Posted: Jun 29, 2023

Our stay here was absolutely perfect! The view is amazing…. The chalet was very clean and beds are very comfortable! Great place to go and just relax! Plenty to do on property for the entire family! I really can’t say enough about watching the Sunset from the deck! Book it and enjoy! I will be again!


Posted: Jun 29, 2023

No problems...we had a good time.

Perfect place!

Posted: Jun 29, 2023

It was the perfect location to walk anywhere in town and just a short drive to the beach. It was very clean and had everything we needed!


Posted: Jun 29, 2023

had a great time. All was well with the exception of the internet. We had 2 or 3 people working and kids watching TV and the internet was very slow or disappeared entirely at times

Birthday getaway

Posted: Jun 25, 2023

We had a nice relaxing stay , very clean and in a walkable area .


Posted: Jun 20, 2023

This needs more than just 5 stars! 10/10! Perfect location, clean, very comfortable bed, and very relaxing to have the screened in porch and hot tub tucked back in the trees after a long day of seeing the sites of Saugatuck. Loved the history of this property as well and will definitely be back to the Oriole.

Weather be darned...

Posted: Jun 20, 2023

Despite a very unseasonably cold, windy & grey week - we had the best time in Saugatuck! The Swallow accommodations worked great for our family of 6. The cottage was super clean and had everything we needed and space to spread out. This was our first family vacation since the arrival of our first grandchild so time together was the top priority. We enjoyed the shopping & dining and tried all the major spots...our best dinner was at Everyday People's Cafe - 6 different and delectable meals all prepared to perfection - plus a melt-in-your-mouth tuna tar-tar starter. The kitchen at the Swallow was well-equipped, but with all of the amazing restaurants, we didn't use it much! With the cool temps, the hot tub was a nice way to wind down after all of the walking & shopping each day. Highly recommend a stay at the Swallow - great location to enjoy a fun town with family & friends of all ages.

Great little getaway.

Posted: Jun 19, 2023

The Oriole was a very cozy little cabin to spend our long weekend getaway. Very clean and accommodating. My wife and I had never been to Saugatuck, however we were very happy to have visited. The only things I would mention are very minor but simple things that I think could improve the stay. It would have been nice to have a simple bottle of hand soap. The hot-tub was missing the headrests making relaxing…a little less relaxing (hard plastic with the cutout for headrests). I wasn’t aware that we were basically 10 feet away from other rentals, the fence could be extended so that we weren’t looking into the neighbors bedroom window while in the hot tub (arms reach away). Really not much at all to complain about though, we had a great time and we’re very happy with the rental.

Favorite new place

Posted: Jun 19, 2023

This place is perfect for some summer vacations away from the city! Thank you for everything, my family and I had an amazing time.

Easy, fantastic stay

Posted: Jun 16, 2023

A rustic feel with all the amenities!


Posted: Jun 12, 2023

Very nice stay. Awesome view!☺

Beautiful property, gorgeous town.

Posted: Jun 11, 2023

The house was super clean, had everything we could need, and was walking distance from a lot! Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Adorable Cottage

Posted: Jun 10, 2023

Enjoyed the weekend in this Chalet. Pleasantly surprised how spacious the interior was. Steps upstairs were a little steep. Absolutely loved the screen porch overlooking the pond. Overall it was a good experience. Only gave four stars due to me having to strip the bags and bring my own towels.


Posted: Jun 9, 2023

Fantastic location, clean and just what we needed. Please check the code lock it was somewhat difficult to use; perhaps needs a new battery and then no problem.

Riverview Loft

Posted: Jun 9, 2023

Our stay at the loft was great. The place was clean and had everything we needed. The only comment I have is about the spiral staircase to the bed. It didn't feel very sturdy. Otherwise, excellent rental and would stay again.

Chalet 104

Posted: Jun 5, 2023

Love this place. Perfect for family gatherings. The only critique is the cleaning could be better. Dirty towels and a vape cartridge left in one of the bedrooms.

Family Weekend

Posted: Jun 5, 2023

The house was great and super clean and walking distance to town which was fantastic. The only downside which was avoidable and really startling was the sap that fell on our cars. Our cars were covered in sap when we woke up the first morning and luckily after going to a couple car washes they were able to get the sap removed. I would let folks know. We have a new Tesla and my husband decided it was best to park up the street and I parked my car at the end of the driveway to avoid as much sap as possible.

Awesome stay

Posted: Jun 5, 2023

Enjoyed our time here..the place was nice and comfortable, relaxing atmosphere, everything was clean, will be looking forward to returning again in the future

Saugatuck Harbor House

Posted: May 30, 2023

This house is ideal for a large group of fourteen people. The dining room has a table that will accommodate everyone. That was especially nice since our group hadn't all been together for 10 years. The rooms delightfully decorated and provided many seating areas. We all felt the house was way nicer than the pictures.We absolutely loved it!

Great Experience

Posted: May 29, 2023

The best rental we’ve ever stayed in. Great location, perfect layout, the pool and hot tub was a huge selling point. Perfect place to stay!

Mermaid Cove

Posted: May 28, 2023

Beautiful stay, easy to access and everything was perfect!

Awesome stay

Posted: May 22, 2023

We loved staying at the Oriole. It was within walking distance to town which is what we were looking for. It is a super cute studio and the hot tub was awesome.

Quaint and Cozy

Posted: May 19, 2023

A small cottage that is perfect for 2 that comes with a nice updated interior. Perfectly matches the feel of the area. 10/10 would come back again!

“Two Bedroom” accommodations

Posted: May 15, 2023

My three star rating reflects advertised two bedroom accommodations. The second bedroom is a Sunroom with a bed. There are no window coverings on the abundant windows. There is no closet for hanging clothes, and you have to walk through the master bedroom to get to the bery small bathroom. Wonderful outside area, with lots of wildlife viewing.

Cozy Cottage

Posted: May 13, 2023

Great place to stay, had everything you might need th make yourself at home. Yes shower is on the smaller size but it's a cottage. Rotu TV not so great, but did get some programs. Overall it's a real nice place

Lovely Place!

Posted: May 12, 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Blue Orchid. The layout of the condo was a bit strange, with only two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first level. If you have elderly staying with you, the stairs might be an issue to get to the kitchen/living room. Very clean, good location. I got my deposit back very quickly. Will use again if in the area!


Posted: May 8, 2023

Perfect for a girls weekend and great location !

Jan jancek

Posted: May 7, 2023

Four girls went for a girls weekend. It was great. Easy walk to and from town. Lots of space. Definitely look forward to going again


Posted: May 7, 2023

Excellent location very nice

Perfect Location!

Posted: May 6, 2023

This was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy SAUGATUCK. The hot tub was great for the cool evenings. There was plenty of room and the house was comfortable. My only feedback was it needs towel hooks and bars in the front bathroom. Also mirrors in the bedrooms would be nice to get ready to go out.

Amazing !!!

Posted: May 5, 2023

Our stay left nothing to be desired! We will be back and just really appreciated the coziness, cleanliness, outdoor setting, every last thing about it! Thank you!

Quiet time in the woods

Posted: May 4, 2023

We loved staying at Naples North. My parents looked like the belonged here, in the big easy chair or the sunny deck with red wicker chairs. The master suite was great for them too. The location was good - easy access to Saugatuck and Holland, Grand Rapids and even a swing to Chicago. The woods surrounding the house were lovely and quiet and the hot tub in the back under the stars, divine. Leslie

A gem of a cottage in a lovely lake town!

Posted: May 4, 2023

Four Generations cottage was a fantastic location for our weekend getaway. This was our base for visiting the spring tulips of the area, but it would also make a wonderful lake vacation. (We are already making plans for the latter.) The cottage is within walking distance of central Saugatuck which is well stocked with great shops and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and are looking forward to a return visit!

Saugatuk stay

Posted: May 2, 2023

This was an adorable place to stay for 3 nights. Very, very clean with everything one would need to prepare dinners. A quick walk to town, unfortunately April is a little early for most of the galleries to open & it was very chilly. I would strongly recommend this little cottage. Although I was expecting a washer & dryer, other than that everything was perfect.

The Oriole

Posted: Apr 28, 2023

Just Perfect! The oriole had everything we needed, and is so close to town. And the hot tub was so nice after a day of hiking!

Fantastic location, great host

Posted: Apr 26, 2023

Fantastic, comfortable cottage

Posted: Apr 24, 2023

Amble room for three families, beautifully decorated and VERY comfortable! Great spaces inside and out the entire house for games and wonderful family time! The only negative is the internet…. Direct TV is not the best.

Great stay!

Posted: Apr 24, 2023

Our stay was great! Your place is very clean and comfortable! Thank you so much!!!

Great Stay

Posted: Apr 16, 2023

We enjoyed our stay at the Hummingbird Cottage. The location was great, within walking distance to downtown Saugatuck. The amenities were high end which made the cottage comfortable. If you are looking for outdoor space there wasn’t any for this until so maybe look into other cottages this host offers.

Loved this place

Posted: Apr 12, 2023

Newly-constructed, beautifully decorated and the perfect location for us, right on the water and in town. Our teenagers enjoyed walking to their favorite coffee shops and stores. You have a water view out of about every window, and the property is very close to the water's edge. We will definitely come back!

Great memories at or stay at The Nightingale

Posted: Apr 7, 2023

My daughter and I had the most perfect girls getaway at The Nightingale. What a beautiful, clean and spacious rental. The beds were very comfortable as was the large couch, where we streamed Hulu movies each evening. So much to do! Walking distance to many restaurants and unique shops, as well as a short drive to hiking trails and Holland Michigan. We definately want to come back and re explore the area in warmer weather.

Great Place

Posted: Apr 5, 2023

Great place to stay. Very clean, right on the water, beautiful condo. The owner was great and easy to deal with. Will be coming back!

Fantastic Experience

Posted: Mar 31, 2023

We had a great weekend away up in Michigan. The Stable was beautiful, fully stocked, clean, and exactly as described online. We were extremely happy with everything and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Adorable and quaint

Posted: Mar 28, 2023

We loved our stay at the Oriole! A short walk to everything and lovely, clean accommodations!

Farm house

Posted: Mar 24, 2023

Love the Farmhouse, we try and come every year with a group. The team is always super responsive if we have any issues. Wonderful layout of the house, the beds are comfortable and the HOT TUB is the best part! We will be back!


Posted: Mar 11, 2023

Cozy Weekend

Posted: Feb 19, 2023

Lovely little house. Is very cozy and has everything you need for a quick getaway. The hot tub was perfect. We had a relaxing time.

Mermaid cove

Posted: Jan 8, 2023

Lovely house, with great water views and walking distance to Suagatuck.

Ideal Get Away

Posted: Jan 7, 2023

River Walk was exactly as promised. Beds were plentiful and comfortable, linens were abundant and of high quality, and the kitchen had everything one would need. The best part was the kitchen table, large enough to seat plenty of guests. We highly recommend River Walk.

Christmas family time

Posted: Dec 26, 2022

This place was perfect for our family gathering! We had so much space! It was extremely clean and very well equipped! Loved everything about it

The perfect winter weekend!

Posted: Dec 26, 2022

Our family gathered at Lay by the Bay to celebrate Christmas and had the most wonderful, cozy time. The weather was festive outside while we ate, played games, watched movies. The kitchen had everything imaginable, beds and linens were top notch. We’re looking forward to scheduling for next year!

Cozy Cottage

Posted: Dec 18, 2022

We loved our visit! The cottage was cozy and clean. Check in/out was easy. Great location! Highly recommend.

Wonderful vacation

Posted: Dec 18, 2022

This home is one of the most beautiful Airbnb rentals that we have stayed in. Beds are very cozy. Set back in a secluded wooded area. House is equipped with everything you will need. Our two families had an awesome Christmas here.

Girls Getaway

Posted: Dec 14, 2022

Perfect place for 3 gals on our getaway. Wish we could have stayed longer than one night. The cottage had all the amenities we needed and a great location.

Beautiful place!

Posted: Nov 22, 2022

Everything was great and as advertised. Host communicated well and check in and out was very easy. We come again!

Fall 2022

Posted: Nov 16, 2022

Could not have been any better, the best time of the year, extremely peaceful and quiet.

Nice place as always...

Posted: Nov 15, 2022

I like chalets a lot, since 9 years of using the chalets it's been the best place to stay comfortably when I'm working around.

Perfect Couples Stay!

Posted: Nov 11, 2022

The place was cute, comfortable, and clean. Everything we needed to enjoy our stay was provided. A short walk to down town area provided the perfect amount of privacy. My boyfriend and I had a great time and would recommend to anyone looking for a place just outside the hustle and bustle of down town.

Mother, Daughter Weekend

Posted: Nov 11, 2022

We had a wonderful stay! Very impressed that everything was clean,beds were comfortable and the kitchen well appointed. Nice decorating. The only suggestion is that you could have a few games and better instructions on the thermostat. Would HIGHLY recommend the Saugatuck Harbor House!!!

Wonderful Stay

Posted: Nov 8, 2022

We very much enjoyed everything about our stay. This was our 2nd stay and we will continue to return. It’s very spacious and clean. We like that we are right in between Saugatuck and Douglas.

Great place

Posted: Nov 4, 2022

Just the right size for two (although i did bang my head a few times in the kitchen because of the sloped roof) nice location close to town

Wonderful house

Posted: Oct 30, 2022

Great house. Very clean and well stocked. The surrounding area is beautiful. Only downside is the 5th “bedroom” could use some blinds.

Great stay! Lovely place

Posted: Oct 28, 2022

This is our second year staying here and we absolutely love it. Tons of space for everyone, walking distance to town and a hot tub for relaxing.

Saugatuck Farmhouse

Posted: Oct 28, 2022

House was perfect for our group! The place was really clean, and I appreciate the ease in how information was shared via the Airbnb site. Check-in and check-out went smoothly, and will definitely stay here again!

Great Place to stay

Posted: Oct 22, 2022

The cottage was nicely furnished and situated close enough to walk to town. We will definitely book there again.

Great little find, great location ...

Posted: Oct 19, 2022

We had a fabulous time in Saugatuck. The Hummingbird was ideal for 2 people. A cosy space and ideal location. 10 minute walk onto the main shopping street or 2 minutes drive. Peaceful area and street in the evening. Felt safe too. Saugatuck has so much to offer and is stunning in so many ways. Great location for exploring the area although loads to do within 10 minutes too. Good access to the Interstate and main highways. The house is well cared for and clean and tidy. Couple of downsides ... Bathroom and toilet downstairs, adjacent to the kitchen whilst the bedroom and lounge is upstairs. No outside space to use which we imagine would be a bonus in the summer months, we were Autumn (Fall) visitors from the UK. No AC but fans provided. We would definitely return to the area and Hummingbird if there was only the two of us.


Posted: Oct 16, 2022

We loved staying at The Oriole. The location was perfect and we enjoyed walking into town. The cottage was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. WiFI signals were weak and spotty though and the tv would go in and out or keep spinning. We would definitely love to visit The Oriole again.


Posted: Oct 15, 2022

Loved the chalet. It was clean and located in such a great area. Beaches, stuff for the kids, plenty of kitchen supplies. It was great! The battery in our tv remote didn’t work and they fixed it promptly.

Wonderful Spot

Posted: Oct 9, 2022

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet #20! It came equipped with everything we needed and provided amazing views of Lake Michigan through nearly every window. The perfect spot to enjoy the many moods of the lake.

Absolutely amazing weekend getaway!

Posted: Oct 7, 2022

Everything about this stay was 5 start worthy! The only reason I'd rate it as a 4.5 is because we had issues with locking the exterior doors our first night there. However, to our host's credit, as soon as we communicated the issues they were quick to come the next day and help us lock them/ informed us they are in the midst of replacing them.


Posted: Oct 7, 2022


Posted: Oct 2, 2022

Great views! Steps from the beach!


Posted: Sep 30, 2022

We loved our stay at Chalet 16! It was super clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Wonderful view. My only tiny thing I would change is I wish there was a gate on the back patio steps. Our toddler loves the beach and kept trying to escape :) We will be back again for sure!

Best Location in Saugatuck

Posted: Sep 29, 2022

This was our second visit to Mermaid Cove, and found it to be as charming as ever. The house itself is lovely, and the owners do a fantastic job of seasonal decorations. The real star is being right at water's edge on Kalamazoo Lake, with fantastic views of sunrise and sunset.

Wonderful stay!

Posted: Sep 23, 2022

There is so much space at this beautiful home. Perfect for a large group to stay, visit, and relax. Very clean, close to town, would stay again. My only recommendation is that you bring a yeti for morning coffee. While the kitchen is fully stocked and many coffee cups are available, they are quite small


Posted: Sep 20, 2022

It was perfect! So clean and it was decorated beautifully! Close to the downtown area was also a plus. We will definitely book again!

Beautiful view with luxury appointments

Posted: Sep 16, 2022

Unit 40 has a great view and is very nice with room for 6 guests. You are in walking distance to the town of Douglas and within 10 minutes of Saugatuck with parking time.

Chalet 48

Posted: Sep 13, 2022

We were so happy to return to chalet on the lake for a few days with our grandkids. We have stayed here before during the same week. However our trip was quickly ruined by the closing of the pool on Tuesday morning. In the past it had still been open this week and the weather was hot and sunny. We had asked about this before we booked and was told it would be weather dependent. Well the weather was perfect for swimming. We had to dry a lot of tears and try to find other things to do since this is what we usually spend every day doing. Will not book again next year this week for sure. Very dissatisfied with this. Pool and beach is why we come to this area the week after Labor Day every year.

Beautiful Chalet and Perfect Location

Posted: Sep 13, 2022

We loved our stay the Chalet. #1 was the perfect location for gorgeous Lake Michigan Sunsets and directly next to the beach. The size of chalet was perfect our family of 3. Only bummer was the pools closed after Labor Day and we didn't realize that but that was our fault since we didn't read the entire description and it was noted on that.


Posted: Sep 12, 2022

Chalet 27 - Labor Day 2022

Posted: Sep 12, 2022

All in all it was a good stay. great location and unit was well stocked. love the new pool and refurbished tennis courts. That said, i do have a few items that could use attention: 1) Why can't you bring your dog for the weekend? My understanding is that dogs are allowed every other weekend of the year on Chalet grounds. Additionally, dogs are now allowed in shopping malls, some retail stores, etc..Management needs to get with the times in terms of pet-friendly 2) Will we ever see early check-ins on Fridays of long weekends? What about late checkouts on Mondays of the long weekends? Prior management allowed it. When one sees online that their unit is vacant the Thursday before and the Tuesday after...doesnt make sense 3) Is it too much to ask to have a recycling service on Chalet grounds? For a resort that is located in natural beauty on a lakefront, it would make too much sense for the Chalet to go green and have recycling along with trash pickup. Lets protect our natural resources


Posted: Sep 11, 2022

The house was beautiful! Had a spectacular time!!

Chalet 41 / chalet on the lake

Posted: Sep 10, 2022

Always enjoy our stay. The new ice machine at the office is nice. The new pool is really nice. The kids loved all the playgrounds.


Posted: Sep 10, 2022

We Love This Chalet!

Posted: Sep 10, 2022

We have been staying at Chalet 44 on Labor Day weekend for the last 5 years. We love this spot right by the pool and volleyball courts. We love that there is plenty of lawn space to gather and for the kids to run around! The couches are comfy and the kitchen and bath are great! The only negative, which contributed to giving it a 4, instead of a 5, is that the beds were EXTREMELY uncomfortable. We all woke up with sore backs (even the kids) and the sheets were so scratchy I got a rug burn on my elbow from just tossing and turning at night. If the mattresses were replaced and better bedding, this would definitely be one of the best Chalets to stay at!


Posted: Sep 10, 2022

Review Chalet 17

Posted: Sep 10, 2022

We absolutely love the chalet. The view is breathtaking. One thing that is definitely need is an upgrade on the couches. They are very uncomfortable.

Excellent girls weekend!

Posted: Sep 9, 2022

This was the perfect house and location for a girls get away. The house was clean, well stocked and nicely decorated. It was a quick walk downtown to all the stores and restaurants. At the end of the day it was great to come back and relax in the hot tub. Highly recommend a stay here!

Summer getaway

Posted: Sep 6, 2022

Property was very clean, modern, and great location. We had an amazing Time!

Beautiful and modern home in Saugatuck

Posted: Sep 6, 2022

This was a wonderful home for a weekend trip. Spacious, well-appointed and furnished, stocked kitchen, wonderful hot tub for the chilly evenings. Would definitely book this stay again in the future!

Great Property

Posted: Sep 6, 2022

Unbelievable house with everything you need! Had a great stay with some friends.

Lake views are second to none

Posted: Sep 2, 2022

You can't beat the location, proximity to Chicago, sunsets, and quaint beach. The dwelling itself was a bit cluttered with furniture, dishes, and knick knacks. Otherwise it was comfortable and convenient. The perfect respite from our usual hustle and bustle.

Amazing Property!!!

Posted: Sep 2, 2022

We absolutely LOVED this property. The views were beautiful, the house was clean and spacious and we were walking distance to downtown. We had the most amazing time and can’t wait to return to next summer!

Chalet 80

Posted: Sep 2, 2022



Posted: Sep 2, 2022

Chalet was a little dated but grounds were perfect!

Wonderful Stay

Posted: Aug 28, 2022

We enjoyed our stay. Small house but good for 4 people. House was Clean. The hot tub and Gas Grill were a plus. Washer and dryer in house. Great location near town and Oval Beach. A minor negative is in the kitchen—there were only 3 plates and 2 wine glasses.


Posted: Aug 28, 2022


Location + Pool are awesome

Posted: Aug 27, 2022

Great place!!

Mermaid Cove Review

Posted: Aug 26, 2022

We had a lovely stay. We enjoyed our time and would highly recommend staying here again. It was clean and spacious.

Clean and well maintained

Posted: Aug 26, 2022

The house was clean and well appointed, but there's a smell of animal urine that seems to be coming from the front porch area and it's pretty strong - coming from either the mat or under the porch somewhere - so the front door screen couldn't be used without the smell going into the whole house. As a result, we weren't able to get a breeze into the house and could only open the windows at the back, where it was really sunny and hot. If you can figure out where the smell is coming from, it would be great.


Posted: Aug 26, 2022

We had a wonderful, relaxing great stay. Chalets had everything we needed. We will return again next summer.

Wonderful, Relaxing

Posted: Aug 25, 2022

We have been going to Chalet on the Lake for many years. This year the Chalet we usually rent was unavailable. We were able to book Chalet #2, and it was beautiful, well equipped and located steps from the beach. We love the Saint Joseph area as there is much to do and many fantastic restaurants. The beach was great as was the weather. We find the Chalets a perfect low key vacation, you can do as little or as much as you want. Perfect for our multigenerational family.

Awesome View

Posted: Aug 25, 2022

We had a wonderful summer vacation, as usual!

Chalet #36

Posted: Aug 25, 2022

We had a great week. The view from this chalet is beautiful. It is close to beach and the pool. Only downside—this chalet needs updating and deck/stairs maintenance.

Beautiful location

Posted: Aug 25, 2022

Chalet 20 is really nice. It was clean and stacked full of everything we needed. Sunsets were great.


Posted: Aug 25, 2022

Our first visit to chalet!

Posted: Aug 22, 2022

We r a family of 5 and it was our first visit to chalet! Our chalet was so clean and had everything we needed from cookware to a baby highchair to family board games! The parks, pools, and beach are well taken care of! We can’t wait to make this an annual visit!

Farm House Charm

Posted: Aug 22, 2022

We enjoyed our stay with family at Saugatuck farmhouse. Our children and grandchildren really enjoyed the pool table and hot tub. It is an easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. The house was perfect for our family. We had one concern and the response was prompt and professionally handled. We would definitely stay with Ethan's properties again if in the area.

Chalet on the Lake #20

Posted: Aug 21, 2022

We enjoyed a short visit to Michigan by staying in Chalet #20. The views were wonderful. The first floor upgrades were much appreciated. We started staying in various Chalets back in 1980.


Posted: Aug 21, 2022

Generally good experience and like the location in relationship to our other cabins. Some stains on the couch could use a bit of stain remover


Posted: Aug 21, 2022

Nice updates

Posted: Aug 21, 2022

Liked all the updates done this year. New counter table is great, like the flooring

Nice stay

Posted: Aug 21, 2022

Appreciate the chairs by the counter and good shape it is in. Only comment is that the box fans don't work.

Love the dishwasher!

Posted: Aug 21, 2022

Comfortable and good location


Posted: Aug 21, 2022

We had such a great time at your Chalets. All the comforts of home. We look forward to booking again next year. Kay Beach

Cozy Cottage

Posted: Aug 20, 2022

Thank you Ethan. We had a very enjoyable time in Saugatuck. The cottage was lovely and comfortable.

Great Place!

Posted: Aug 18, 2022

We stumbled upon this rental for a quick weekend stay and it was great!! We were able to walk to all the ammenities and enjoy beautiful Michigan. The chalet was clean and very nice, my family of 4 had plenty of space. The pool was amazing and beach was just a short walk. We will be back!!


Posted: Aug 18, 2022

Lots of seating, bigger tv than a lot of our friends chalets. Screened in porch had a nice table.

Chalet 18, August 6-13, 2022

Posted: Aug 18, 2022

Our stay was great. I am so happy to see management investing in the upkeep and improvements of the chalets. There are so many families that make their visit a family tradition, me being one, that my kids and now theirs really like coming for our summer vacation. Nicer crowd of people too. Music on Wednesdays is a nice touch. Love the new pool and bathrooms! Pot holing the driveway would be nice. Has management ever considered putting in some food purchase location like where the old office was? I think people would love to grab a quick meal instead of needing to go into town. Thanks for the work you’re doing.

Home away from home, with a view!

Posted: Aug 18, 2022

The view from our unit was wonderful. Close to the beach with a full view of the Beach. Nicely decorated with a homey feeling.

Chalet 74

Posted: Aug 18, 2022

It’s always enjoyable staying at chalet. Our family has been coming for 26 years. We are close to the park and new pool which is wonderful. #74 is nice. If looking for small improvements the Porch furniture is getting a bit worn out. Blinds on the sky lights would help keep it cooler. Also the pantry is usually full of personal items which makes it harder to store some grocery item. I’m not complaining we love it there just giving some ideas. Thank you for another wonderful year at Chalet on the Lake !!

great location - could use some updating

Posted: Aug 17, 2022

This location is great, facing out from the porch to renovated basketball/pickleball courts. Short walk to the newer pool by the pond, which looks great. Other side faces volleyball court, and close to the other pool and still a short walk to either the private or public beaches. All A/C units ran well, but this was the first chalet I have been in where the (warm) exhaust for the first floor A/C vents out directly into the porch. (Chalet 44, for example, vents outside just to the side of the porch.) There were no fans available to renters in the chalet, and the first two days of 85-88 degree weather made the porch unusable. I finally bought some fans, one small one to blow the exhaust upwards towards the porch roof, and another to blow cooler air from the A/C-cooled living room into the porch, and it became tolerable. Queen/full beds were hard and uncomfortable. Porch is older, roof flapped noisily in higher winds, some stair boards need replacing.

We so enjoyed the new pool. The grounds looked cared for especially the pond area. Our chalet 36 needs a screen on the back door so we could get a breeze. Good Time

It worked well for our family. I liked the location

Chalet 2

Posted: Aug 11, 2022

After staying at the Chalets for 4 years, we found it strange that #2 Chalet is priced $800 over the connecting chalet and many others. There was nothing about the interior that made us glad we picked it over Chalet 1. We were under the impression that the chalets were priced evenly according to location?

Five Star

We were very happy with the chalet and plan on staying in the same chalet next year.

Lovely holiday cottage

Posted: Aug 9, 2022

On the Hill is beautifully decorated and furnished, all very cosy and everything needed is provided - we loved staying here. The AC is really effective which was a relief. The location is great in a leafy part of town, a short walk from the shops and riverfront but far enough away to be quiet. We didn't use the BBQ but did prepare dinners in the kitchen and plenty of equipment is provided. I found the shower cubicle very small and it could be an issue if you have any mobility issues - that's the only small negative. Overall a really cute cottage and lovely place to stay, felt like home from home.

The Nightingale cottage

Posted: Aug 9, 2022

The cottage space was very clean, well kept and cozy and a perfect spot to come back to after a day at the beach or a stroll downtown. The proximity to downtown was one of the nice highlights of our stay. The only con was that we stayed during the Venetian Festival and it was LOUD. We could hear people partying downtown and in the cabins behind us until the wee hours of the morning. I would stay here again in a heartbeat during the week or a normal weekend, but might think twice during any festivals/parties downtown.

Great little spot

Posted: Aug 6, 2022

Perfect small detached apartment nestled in the back corner of a larger complex. Perfect location, steps away from downtown saugutuck and a mile or so from Douglas. Easy checkin, clean and comfortable stay.

Chalet on the Lake July 22-July 29, 2022

Posted: Aug 4, 2022

We have been coming to the Chalet on the Lake for over 20 years with all of our family and extended family. We had a Wonderful week! I learned to play Pickleball, I Love the new courts. The new pool is absolutely Beautiful! We had so much fun hanging out at the pool and at the beach. Also, our Chalet#68 was very clean and comfortable. We will be back again next year. It was a Great week! Thank you, Cathy Pranckus

Couldn't Be Better

Had a marvelous time. The views from #35 could not be better. The unit is well maintained, up to date, and comfortable. Could not ask for more

River Walk Bliss

Posted: Aug 2, 2022

A beautiful home that we enjoyed greatly. We are a family of 12, ages from 11 to 78. You won’t be disappointed! The hot tub is difficult to get in and out of for the older folks. There is not a bathroom on the upper level where the queen size bunk beds are, but an amazing setting for campfires.

Charming Cottage

Posted: Jul 29, 2022

We loved staying On The Hill! The cottage had everything we needed and was in great proximity to town. We'd definitely stay there again.

Quick walk to downtown and short drive to the beach. Very clean.

A great time for a group of friends!

Posted: Jul 23, 2022

We had such an amazing stay at Naples North! We had plenty of room for people to enjoy themselves and the fire pit, hot tub, and proximity to the lake were all major highlights for those in our group. Scheduling the stay was also very easy and we received check in information with plenty of time ahead of our stay. Thank you for hosting us and we definitely recommend that folks book their family and/or friend trips here!

Clean and comfy cottage

Posted: Jul 23, 2022

We enjoyed our stay here so much. Very clean and nicely decorated. Close to town, a little far for us to walk but for younger people it would be fine. Quiet street and parking right by your front door. We would definitely stay here again.


Posted: Jul 23, 2022

Great clean place

Posted: Jul 21, 2022

The pools are awesome, the new pool is nicely done, kids pool is great as well as the third pool. Outdated but clean. Nice view of pond and great patio. The 2 AC units kept the downstairs cool with the help of the fan.

Vacation stay

Posted: Jul 21, 2022

Really enjoyed our week Very impressed with the new swimming pool. The Farrell unit 79 is very nice - have stayed in their unit many times since the late 1980s.


Posted: Jul 21, 2022

Our stay was great! Lots of sun & fun. Chalet was close to the awesome new pool.

Fantastic time and the Chalet was very nice.

Posted: Jul 21, 2022

The only thing is the mattress in our room needs to be replaced with a new one. It really sags in the middle when trying to sleep. Very uncomfortable. Thank you.

Perfect Saugatuck Getaway

Posted: Jul 20, 2022

We had the perfect week at the Lake Trail Treehouse! The home itself is beautiful, spacious, and very well appointed! The pool and hot tub are both fabulous, we spent most of the week there! We had a few kids with us, and the water areas are properly secured for preliminary layers of protection which helped us feel at ease as well. Truly, the only bad thing was that we actually did have to leave, but we will absolutely be back :)

Chalet 80

Posted: Jul 19, 2022

We had a great time. Location of #80 was perfect for us. But next time would want one with outdoor deck. Also, surprised that there few regular spoons and no seating including salt

We had a fantastic time wish we had more time Chalet was clean hope we can rent it for the same time next year please keep us in mind July 1st - the 9th

Chalet 75

Posted: Jul 14, 2022

The chalet was perfect for what we needed for the week. The property is amazing. The sink in the bathroom would get filled up every time you ran the water. That’s my only complaint : )

Quaint, well-located, and comfortable

Posted: Jul 13, 2022

A superb stay. The tiny house had everything we could need and was perfectly clean. Most of the clean up was on us to do before departure (like hand washing all dishes), but well worth it.

Great stay, perfect for a quick getaway!

Posted: Jul 11, 2022

Loved our stay and the location was perfect for walking to shops and restaurants!

Chalet on the Lake 36

Posted: Jul 8, 2022

We love the location of chalet 36 and the overall experience we have enjoyed at the property for over 50 years. Our gatherings have gone from 9 family members to 78 family members. We are up to approximately 15 rentals. The new pools are wonderful, the music on Wednesdays was a nice addition. The pickle ball/ basketball court great( although there is a hazardous ripple in middle pickle ball court) As for chalet 36, there were some issues- door handle on entering chalet was loose and ready to fall off. The same couch with the wood board beneath the cushion remains a discomfort. Front screen was ripped. There have no updates whatsoever in the chalet for many years( although we still enjoy much about it) Hoping fence blocking off beach gets removed sooner than later. That being said, thank you for another memorable stay with family.

Fun at the Chalet

Posted: Jul 7, 2022

We had a very nice time at the chalet. The chalet was beautiful and adorable. Nicely kept up and very clean. Our children enjoyed the pools and the pond. We had challenges at the beach area with the neighbors shooting bb guns at cans on poles in the direction of the beach. Extremely dangerous and disappointing. We spoke to chalet security and 911 was called and the police did come. The next day, we were able to enjoy the beach. We were sad that there was only one beach access. The beach was the main attraction to us and in the pictures, it appeared to have two access points. There was only 1 access point. And one of our days was cut short due to the bb guns. The Security group was very nice and helpful.

We loved the property. Clean, cute, and cozy! Conveniently located to Saugatuck and Douglas and was the perfect location for our family. Thank you!

very nice chalet

Posted: Jul 6, 2022

our family has been coming here for many many years. almost every year we have had to spend the first 2- 4 hours cleaning the chalet before settling in. the past two years, our chalet has been completely clean. we did not have to clean at all! additionally, it was very appropriately stocked with nice sets of dishes, silverware, pots, pans... in the past, what was provided was very hodgepodge and at times poor quality. we are so pleased with these improvements.

Perfect Place

Posted: Jul 2, 2022

Three couples stayed for a 40th birthday celebration. Perfect place for us. Walking distance to retail area and river access. Short distance to Lake Michigan. Music in the park with DORA (social outdoor drinking area). Dune buggy ride three minutes away by car. Walked to dinner and drinks every night and had night caps on the screened in porch. Hot tub fits four comfortable and six if you are ok with legs touching. Place was clean and lots of towels. We were pleasantly surprised that the house is nicer than the pictures show (which is almost never the case). House is old, but lives new with a great remodel throughout. Love this place and recommend. Well worth the price. Saugatuk is a little gem and this house is wonderful.

Chalet 02

Posted: Jul 2, 2022

Very nice location with easy access to the beach. The chalet was clean with newer carpeting. We enjoyed our stay. I would suggest replacing the electric grill. The circuit breaker kept tripping while trying to use it.

Weekend birthday get away

Posted: Jun 27, 2022

Love it!! Amazing place, super close to downtown walking distance. Perfect location, super clean, and cozy def felt like home. Will defently recommend to family and friends. Planning in coming back.

Great house for a family getaway

Posted: Jun 22, 2022

We really enjoyed staying here! We had multiple generations and had room for the whole family. The house was clean, modern, comfortable and convenient. We were within 5-10 minutes from most things we wanted to do and good restaurants, but it felt secluded and private as well. We loved walking around the area and walking down to the little lake. We had a couple issues that were fixed promptly and staff was communicative and kind. We would definitely stay here again!


Posted: Jun 22, 2022

Wifi didnt work most of the stay,couldnt even make a phone call due to no service

Great fun!

Posted: Jun 21, 2022

Great location, clean, perfect for our 4!

Above town

Posted: Jun 20, 2022

Beautifully decorated cottage in Saugutuck, Michigan. The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. The cottage was very clean. I would stay there again when visiting the area. The only suggestion would be a curtain or blind over the small window in the bedroom. It was very bright in the morning with the sun coming in.

Great time

Posted: Jun 18, 2022

We loved our visit to the Chalets on the Lake. Wonderful location, well-maintained property and homes. Chalet #80 is perfect for a family with young kids since it’s close to the playground. Thanks for a great stay!

Great place to visit

Posted: Jun 17, 2022

Everything very clean and well maintained. Nice heated pool. Close to beach. Chalets are very nice.

Great girls getaway weekend

Posted: Jun 17, 2022

We had 5 ladies in our group and it could not have been more perfect. The location was great and walking distance to downtown Douglas. Great views. Everything is as it looks in the pictures. Very clean and organized. We made very sure we left everything just the way we got it. We will definitely be back! We decided we will stay a little longer next time. One of the best rentals I have stayed in and my friends felt the same way too. They still cannot stop talking about it.


Posted: Jun 17, 2022

Highly Recommend

Posted: Jun 16, 2022

We had a wonderful time on our short stay in Chalet #39. This unit was in a great location near the pool and everything was exactly as described, or better. The resort has been recently updated with new shuffleboard, tennis court, basketball courts, and brand new large pool & children's wading pool with bathhouse. The pools' depth go from 3 feet to 5 feet which is great when you have young children. The new beach entrance is also very close to this unit. We had a great time and can't wait to come back next year!

The Oriole

Our experience at the Oriole was exceptional! It was exactly as it was described. Convenient, clean, quiet, close to everything. Can’t wait to rebook!

Friends Getaway

Posted: Jun 15, 2022

As a Christmas gift I received a few nights stay at the Singapore Stable! It is a charming home! I picked up a few friends of mine and we spend the days exploring town and the evenings grilling wonderful food and enjoying each others' company!

Lovely with Perfect Location

Posted: Jun 15, 2022

Even better than we expected. Beautiful remodeled cottage. Nicely finished. Perfectly clean. Easy check in. Nice balcony and screened in porch. Quiet, Residential neighborhood. Lots of trees and birds. Easy parking. Three block walk to Butler Street with Restaurants, Shops, the waterfront. We had one really cold, rainy day. Fireplace was east and cozy. Loved it and would rent it again!

Terrific time!

Posted: Jun 11, 2022

We only had a weekend to get away. This was a perfect trip, clean and the view from the back deck was amazing. Will stay a week next time like we used to when I was a kid.

Great place.

Very good

Posted: Jun 10, 2022

Check-in/Check-out process was very easy. Chalet was clean and has all the amenities. Would have been perfect if at least a dryer was installed.

Posted: Jun 7, 2022

We had a great stay at this chalet, the location was wonderful and an easy walk to the beach and the playground was right in our backyard. The only criticism I have is that there was no communication that one of the pools (and the kiddie pool) was not open. The emails we were sent said the pools would be open Memorial Day weekend, and it was disappointing that we couldn't utilize the one behind us.

Great Experience

Posted: May 30, 2022

I grew up spending a week every summer at chalet on the lake and was so happy to be back after so many years. Beds were comfortable, beautiful view of the lake, large deck for meals and watching the sunset, and the addition of air conditioners is a huge bonus. Will definitely be back!

Girls Trip

Posted: May 29, 2022

The location is great. The house is really nice, beds are comfortable and plenty of towels. The hot tub was clean and perfect since the weather was still a little chilly. The only issue we had was that the furnace was not working the first night and it was pretty cold.I called it in and there was a heating repair person there first thing the next morning. They got it working and all was good! I appreciate the quick response. We will definitely rent again!


Posted: May 28, 2022

Perfect, as always!

Posted: May 25, 2022

We've stayed here three times since last September, and have always found it to be outstanding. The home is solidly built, beautiful, full of storage, lots of windows, and spotlessly clean. The location couldn't be better: literally a three minute walk down to the shops, restaurants, and the waterfront of Kalamazoo Lake.

Wonderful Getaway

Posted: May 13, 2022

We enjoyed a getaway weekend and took in the Holland Tulip Festival. We really enjoyed the quiet, calm setting of Blue Zen. Was a true retreat. :)

What an amazing home

Posted: May 13, 2022

We rented this home to attend a wedding in nearby Holland. This home was absolutely beautiful and the sunset view from the lake was astounding. The neighbor was a wealth of knowledge for us. The hot tub has the best jets ever and the walk in showers were awesome! The pool table and video games were a hoot for the adults and we all became kids again while playing. We grilled outside, had an awesome fire, and sang to the top of our lungs (amazing acoustics in this place so bring your guitar!!). A bit pricey for less than 48 hours access but well worth the stay.


Posted: May 12, 2022

The view from Cabin 8 is phenomenal, magnificent sunsets and believe it or not, we were able to watch the moon set in the early morning hours. As an older person it was rather difficult for me to get in and out of the cabin. So we purchased a stone to use as a step for the front door. We rented the cabin during the off season. So we could not use the bathroom on the second floor. That was disappointing but understandable.


Posted: May 12, 2022

Wonderful accommodations. Bannister on front stoop must be fixed. Safety concern.

Posted: Apr 29, 2022

We loved our stay. The chalet is very comfortable. We rebooked for September!!! Issues: outside light at the door wall was not working. inside lighthouse floor lamp was not working even after I replaced a bulb. screen door did not have a cylinder on it.

Fun weekend getaway

Posted: Apr 8, 2022

Overall a nice stay, this chalet was very sparse in basic kitchen needs but still had the bare bones basics. The space was laid out nicely and had a nice view of the lake. I’m still waiting on my security deposit back however and it’s been a week. Still looking forward to staying here again.

Great Location, Very Clean, but Loud

Posted: Apr 3, 2022

The condo was really pretty and immaculately clean. Location is perfect for walking downtown, including a fantastic used book store. The bed was very comfortable. The only issue we had was the person staying upstairs walked around quite heavily alot, and played music very loudly until midnight. My only suggestions are maybe a small tv in the bedroom. And I would recommend parking in the street because getting out of the designated spot can be a little tricky. But since there is plenty of street parking right there that was no big deal at all.

Girls weekend

Posted: Apr 2, 2022

The swallow was perfect for 4 women on a weekend wine and shopping getaway. Great beds, very clean. We loved the open area. Another chair in the kitchen bar area would be helpful. Location is perfect for walking anywhere. Very quiet.

Fantastic cozy get-away!

Posted: Mar 27, 2022

This was an amazing place to stay for a quick get-away! It was meticulously clean, it was close to down town and the beach was less than 2 miles away! I would stay here again in a heart beat! Thank you to the hosts!

Singapore Stable was awesome!

Posted: Mar 18, 2022

We had a great time and enjoyed every aspect of the property! Great value with the hot tub, full kitchen, and close to downtown saugatuck. There were some discarded cigarette butts and seltzer cans in the back and around the side door when we arrived, those were not from us. Would stay again. Thank you!


Posted: Mar 18, 2022

Great house with lots of room for many guests

Posted: Mar 11, 2022

As a group, we have stayed in this house multiple times and always loved it. My only grievance would be that this time there were no coffee filters or basic cooking supplies like non-stick spray, salt, pepper or oil. I realize Covid was a concern in 2020 but I don't think those items need to be thrown out between each guests now in 2022. Overall though, great house.

Girls Weekend

Posted: Mar 11, 2022

Had a wonderful stay. Comfy bed, clean and great location. I did have to go out and buy shampoo and condition because none was provided and the walls are thin. Was very conscious of our neighbors above.


Posted: Feb 25, 2022


Posted: Feb 10, 2022

We absolutely loved the cabin! It was so spacious, had a wonderful kitchen and living room. The beds were very comfortable and so was the couch! The hot tub was also a great thing to have in the winter since much wasn’t open in town. It’s a great place to go relax and get away from job/home stress! Only thing I would recommend is some oven mits and sponges for the kitchen.


Posted: Jan 28, 2022

Great location

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!

Posted: Jan 26, 2022

My boyfriend and I chose The Oriole for a little winter getaway to explore Saugatuck. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and well stocked with towels and kitchen supplies. We loved having a hot tub just steps from our front door with all of the snow that we got during our stay! But the best part of all was having our walkway and driveway shoveled each day to make getting to and from the cottage a breeze! We can’t wait to come back when the weather is warmer.

Incredible Gem of a Find!

Posted: Jan 23, 2022

We absolutely loved our stay here- perfect for a romantic little weekend getaway. 10/10 recommend!

Perfect weekend getaway

Posted: Jan 1, 2022

We enjoyed our stay ages 11-82 years. You fixed the faucet and dish washer and stated that the wine frig would be fixed for next guests. The front burner on the stove did not light but we managed well. We'd have liked a Christmas tree. The being together of our family was a joy and blessing, we cooked together, had a pool tournament, walked in the woods and the beach, we said in 2 years we'd like to all meet together. PS a large wooden cutting board would be a nice addition

Great Visit

Posted: Jan 1, 2022

Cute, well-equipped, cozy, comfortable, and perfectly located! Host was very responsive and everything was exactly as described. My only suggestion for improvement would be a pull down shade on the back door for privacy.

Beautiful Winter Getaway

Posted: Dec 21, 2021

We were thrilled with this lovely home, and so appreciated that it was fully decorated for Christmas! Each room acknowledged the holiday, and the tree in front even had lights on it. Such a great location: we didn't use the car at all! Walked all over Saugatuck and Douglas (including the grocery).

We appreciated the location and years of using this VRBO. The electric heaters were quite noisy during the night, but otherwise it was a restful place to stay. Would suggest getting a dish rack.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lucky Lucy! The apartment had all the amenities we wanted. The refrigerator was a real convenience and, although we didn't use the stove, it was good to know it was there if we chose to use it. I particularly like that it was walking distance to downtown. I got my husband to walk to dinner a couple of times, and he doesn't walk anywhere at home! The only "thumbs down" is having the bed shoved against the wall. I understand that the layout of the apartment requires it, but it made it very inconvenient for one partner (namely, ME) to get in and out of bed. Thank you.

Fantastic girls weekend!

The house was spotless and smelled faintly of bleach which I so appreciate. The yard was big and beautiful. Loved everything about the experience. Would definitely recommend.

Great getaway

Posted: Oct 6, 2021

We had a great time. Clean and very comfortable in a perfect location for local activities. These rentals are managed well! The unit above us was rented for a portion of the stay. We could definitely hear the renters above but it was not too loud.


Posted: Oct 4, 2021

We had problem with the garbage disposal side of the kitchen sink not draining. We called the appropriate number, left a message and someone came out later that day to fix the problem. I was impressed with the response.

Birthday Getaway

Posted: Oct 2, 2021

We enjoyed the views of the pond. Downside to the porch away was that the carpet felt damp. It took some searching in the kitchen but we were able to find everything we needed to cook. The location was great for the activities we had planned. We would book again.

Lovely stay in Saugatuck

This was an amazing place to stay. It is in walking distance to EVERYTHING. It was nice and clean, but if I had one negative, it was the hardness of the bed, but nothing a mattress pad couldn’t help with. Overall, 9.9/10 for sure!!!

Missed it is a Smoking Unit

Posted: Sep 4, 2021

Well taken care of unit, but this is a heavily smoked in house and could not enjoy the stay as much as I would have liked. I did not see the note that the owners smoked in the unit in the comments and should make the note more prominent.

Long birthday weekend

Posted: Sep 4, 2021

This was the 4th chalet we have stayed in. We love the location and convenience. Close to fantastic beaches, wineries, breweries, great restaurants but also a perfect place to hang out right there! My only suggestions for improvement would be the mattresses are getting worn and could stand to be replaced and we would like to have a place at the resort to leave our recycling or at least have information provided as to where the nearest drop off facility is located.

Been going to Chalet for 17 years, never stayed in #20 but can't wait to rebook. Only negative thing I may say is that it wasn't super clean - top of fridge was kind of gross and both skylights had spider webs in the corners. We also had a LOT of rain in the evening and the skylight by the patio door has a leak. Would be nice to have the ice machine back too. Other than that - always look forward to returning and happy the public beach had so much more room this year!


Posted: Aug 31, 2021

We absolutely loved our view of Lake Michigan! With the warm weather, we literally spent all our time on deck. It was the perfect place to catch the sunrise and sunset. The lake looked magnificent!! The grounds and private beach were clean. The chalet itself was ok. It was a bit dated, worn and not as clean as we expected. The full bed we chose (room closet to lake) was extremely uncomfortable and felt like a leg was missing because of the angel of the mattress. Due to COVID, bedding requirement, we did not want to experiment with other beds. We would definitely stay there again but try a different bed.

Late summer getaway

Posted: Aug 31, 2021

We love the location of this cabin and we were so happy the beach was open! A few steps out the door and we were there. The cabin was well stocked which we appreciated. The only downside was it was not as clean as we had expected. We found remnants of broken balloons on the floor and a couple little pieces of glass on the carpet. I had to lift the couch cushion to look for the TV remote and that area was quite dirty. The weather cooperated so we spent most of the days outside—luckily the storms hit at night.


Posted: Aug 27, 2021

Nice clean please amazing environment , pool and lake were phenomenal , security guards suck, gave us a hard time , not the chalets fault , they need to get a new company or something. The guy was harassing us for no reason, upon checking in the guy asked us were we were staying didn’t state he was security , didn’t have a shirt on, didn’t have a badge, nothing and he wanted us to show him identification . But other then that I know for sure we will be frequent visitors to the chalets . Solid solid solid solid beautiful place!!!

A lovely stay

Posted: Aug 27, 2021

As usual Chalet #12 was clean and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The weather was perfect and the beach was a good size this year. One problem was the hose on the outside could not be operated to wash off the sand before entering the Chalet. We reported it but it was not attended to during our stay. Regardless we will most likely book Chalet #12 for next year.

Easy reservation and good clean space

Posted: Aug 27, 2021

The cottage was very clean, had lots of towels, and some supplies to start. This was my first Airbnb reservation and I was pleasantly surprised.

Chalet #1

Posted: Aug 25, 2021

This vacation was all about location, location, location. We were so close to the beach and it was fantastic! Our chalet was clean and decorated very cute! I don't have anything negative to say; we knew going in that they are pretty dated and rustic. We were disappointed to find out upon arrival that the big pool was under construction. At some point, it would be great if they would be updated/modernized. I might take out the carpeting. Thank you!

Awesome Week With a Great View

Posted: Aug 24, 2021

We had an awesome time in Chalet #20! The view is amazing! We were able to walk to the beaches and pool daily. The kids had a blast. We will definitely be back.

Regarding stay

Posted: Aug 23, 2021

I have been coming there off and on for 40 years. This by far was the worst ever. The view of the lake obstructed by bushes, no security when you need help. I was there alone. There was a sink hole right where people park. If I did not find someone to cover it a child could have fallen let alone the front end of a car. The wind took my closed umbrella and flipped the table leaving shattered glass everywhere. Thank the Dear Lord for my friend and savior Eddy. He was amazing. Sadly I will not be returning and will not recommend this to anyone. For $2000. You want your guests to strip beds! That is really sad. Sandra Desautels.

Chalet 18

Posted: Aug 23, 2021

Everything was good but disappointed the pool wasn’t done. Maybe it was the difference in the week from last year but crowds/control much better. No littering on beach, no loud music. Did see some dogs which puzzled us. The live music was great. Definitely do that again! And that band was great, I’d watch them at other places. Kids caught fish which may have been the highlight for them. Thanks for stocking it. Front door of chalet needs work I think and had very little utensil selection from what I remember in years past. Tons of one thing and none of others, I.e. peeler, wine opener. And no salt and pepper! That surprised us. Had to run to store for that. Had connecting neighbors for first time but very nice people. Overall great.

#93 check out

Posted: Aug 23, 2021

This place was great and we can't wait to come back!

Great rental very near the downtown area of Saugatuck!

Posted: Aug 20, 2021

Very easy walk to the bars, restaurants, and shopping of Saugatuck. Hot tub! Short drive to Oval Beach.

Great view

Posted: Aug 19, 2021

We loved the view and location. Deck was amazing. Unfortunately the inside needs some love. Way too much furniture and clutter. Couches and chairs were in terrible condition and one broke during our stay. Electrical cords and old telephone wires everywhere which were a hazard for our toddler. Stove was also in rough shape. If place were cleaned up and updated we would be happy to stay again otherwise not so sure.

#57–great stay

Posted: Aug 18, 2021

Great property, fully stocked kitchen. Nicely decorated with the old kitchen tins. My son got a kick out of those. Very clean and comfortable. We had a great vacation and definitely will be returning…hopefully to the same unit. Thank you.

Great family vacation

Posted: Aug 18, 2021

Some chalets were nicer, cleaner than others; it’d be great if there was a bedroom on first floor.


Posted: Aug 10, 2021

Very clean and comfortable and close to town.

Posted: Aug 9, 2021

My husband and I were very comfortable in this cozy little house. They had everything we needed and it was super clean. It was also just a few blocks to downtown Saugatuck. Our deposit was returned promptly. Great experience.

Great Experience

Posted: Aug 9, 2021

We loved our stay in Saugatuck! The house was amazing and any issues we had were immediately dealt with! Thank you for a wonderful stay!


Posted: Aug 8, 2021

Nice location and well stocked, clean chalet but no table/umbrella set up for using the deck and needs a proper grill. The electric one provided sucked!

Truly zen

Posted: Aug 8, 2021

Wind whispering through the pines. Dragonflies wishing you good morning. A splash from a fish. Birds in conversation. This cottage is the perfect getaway to reconnect, restore, and revive. The only issue is that the air conditioner is located in the bedroom. You can use the provided box fans to blow the cool air into the living room, but if someone is sleeping with the door closed, that’s not possible. This didn’t bother us too much, except that the fans are loud, and anti-zen. The owner could install a powered vent between the rooms, which would solve this problem. (We have a similar issue in our house, and the vent works.)

Great stay in a great location

Posted: Aug 6, 2021

This home was so clean upon arrival I was truly impressed. The covid precautions made me feel very safe. The home is a great size for our small family. The location is perfect with a quick walk to downtown and short drives anywhere else you need. The house was very well organized with easy to understand instructions. The WiFi was slow/spotty but that seemed to be the case everywhere in Saugatuck. Beds and couch were very comfortable and the bathroom was much roomier than I had envisioned. The owner promptly answered any questions I had prior to arrival and was very helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

Fun stay!

Posted: Aug 4, 2021

My family and friends enjoyed this farmhouse very much. The perfect space for our needs. We used the kitchen for most of the meals but were only a ten minute walk from food establishments and shopping. The screened-in porch was a fabulous place to hang out. The billiards table was a bonus.


Posted: Aug 4, 2021


Posted: Aug 4, 2021

We had a great time at Chalet on the Lake this year - been going about 40 years. It's nice to see improvements around the grounds. #65 was comfortable, clean and had all the kitchen stuff we needed. A pair of scissors would have been nice and the full sized bed in one of the rooms is probably should soon be replaced. The new pond fence is great and am excited for the additional pool. Nice security people and appreciated the later check out this year.

No value for cost of rental

Posted: Aug 3, 2021

This Chalet is in terrible shape. No forks and spoons. We had to go buy some ourselves as only plastic ware was offered as a replacement. The beds are in terrible shape, squeaky and no support Carpet spots throughout the main floor. Door knobs and dresser handles broken Difficulty opening and closing windows upstairs No nightstands in the bedrooms Also wondering why are you working on the tennis courts and pools during the peak season? While we know it’s a rustic stay at the Chalets, your prices are increasing and the value is not. This Chalet is very disappointing.

Wonderful, Quiet Community

Posted: Jul 27, 2021

The chalet was the perfect size and just as pictured. We loved the friendly vibe of the community--on the tennis courts and at the beach especially. Easy location for exploring towns further north, and close to the Indiana Dunes as well.

Lovely house, great location

Unreal view!

Posted: Jul 27, 2021

I have seen some other reviews. I agree that some of the grounds could be tidied up, but the location is amazing! 5 - 10 mins to town and beach but away from everything! That is priceless.

So fun!

Posted: Jul 23, 2021

We had an amazing stay at Chalet #16! We traveled with two young boys. They loved it. The playground, pool, and beach we're perfect for our small family! Hoping to go back next year and the 2nd will be completed.

Saugatuck Farmhouse

Posted: Jul 22, 2021

Saugatuck farmhouse accommodated our whole family very well. The old style blended with the modern amenities. We were within walking distance to most everything. Plenty of good restaurants and shopping. The house was well maintained and landscaped beautifully. The hot tub was an extra bonus. We would definitely return.


Posted: Jul 12, 2021

Very clean and welcoming! All the amenities that we needed were provided. The entire experience was enjoyed by all...we had 4 chalets and we used many of the activities provided. We especially enjoyed the wrap around deck overlooking the lake and the screened in porches on rainy occasions. I chatted with the private owners of Chalet #35 who agreed to rent to us next year when #34 is available again. Katie graciously gave me her cell number which I put in the book I was reading and then promptly lost the book. I know you cannot provide her number to me, but perhaps you would be willing to reach out to her with my phone number: 614-578-2999 and this email address and ask her to contact me. Tell her my name is Adele, like the singer, and we spoke on July 34e before we left the chalet. Thanks! Adele Murphy

Needs Some Updating, But Great Deck!

Posted: Jul 8, 2021

Although the furniture and decor could use some updating, it was a great stay. The deck offers a beautiful view and relaxing space to be outside. The upstairs would be more ideal if the desk/gas lamp and double locked dressers were moved so there was more space. It would have been nice to take advantage of the room without the bunkbed, but the double locked dressers make the room feel smaller. Overall, it was a great experience at the Chalet still!

Small Town Get Away - Hot Spot!

Posted: Jul 5, 2021

LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Only call out… bring your own blankets!


Posted: Jun 14, 2021

We had a lovely experience. The cottage and hot tub were perfect. Everything we needed was available and the instructions were clear. My only comment is there was no outdoor lighting on the property. When we came back after dark, we had to use our phone lights. Thou, maybe I missed a switch. We will be back!

Amazing Weekend

Posted: Jun 13, 2021

Very clean and relaxing! Than you for allowing us to stay. We loved it! And will be back!


Posted: Jun 11, 2021


Posted: Jun 11, 2021

Very good and very nice chalet


Posted: Jun 9, 2021

The unit is updated! Painted white makes it feel open and clean compared to others. Dishwasher and fully stocked kitchen was awesome! We could find anything we could think of we needed in closets- box fan, bar for the bed do our toddler would fall out, crockpot, etc. It’s right in front of the huge playground so we can keep an eye on our kids playing every morning and night. We will be back! The property, we wish we were warned the second pool and wading pool are under construction. Otherwise great property with a pool for adults/bigger kids and community beach we could walk to every day. Playgrounds were great!


Posted: Jun 8, 2021

Great spot in Saugatuck

Posted: May 31, 2021

Great views! Clean, great location! Highly recommened.

My stay

Posted: May 27, 2021

The Chalet was well maintained and equipped with everything I needed for my stay. The only thing that I am not happy about is I have not received my security deposit yet I have called three times this week and no response is there a issue with something. I vacuumed and cleaned up the whole house. I have not been contacted by anyone yet it has been almost two weeks since I left. I received my security deposit last time I stayed there right after I left. I planned on booking this again next outage. I would rate the stay a 5 but not returning calls is not what I would expect from a business and would rate that a 1.

Beautiful property

Posted: May 21, 2021

The house itself was absolutely gorgeous. It was a nice open space with plenty of room for a large group to gather. The town is cute and not far from Saugatuk and Oval Beach. Unfortunately while it does say beach access, the stairs that are supposed to lead to the beach are broken and unusable, so really there is no beach access because all other stairs are private and locked. That was kind of a bummer because it was one of the main selling points of booking this property. The hot tub was also broken, but the management company was extremely responsive and great about trying to get it fixed. All in all, the house itself was great just doesn't have beach access as advertised. It may help to label the light switches as well. While it was not a major inconvenience, it was a source of frustration trying to figure out which one does what.

Beautiful, serene place!

Posted: May 14, 2021

My husband, daughter, and I loved our few days at The Five Eleven. One night I cooked a pretty involved meal for a friend who lives nearby and was impressed with all the pots, pans, platters, etc., available. We biked to the state park and made the short hike to the water. It was gorgeous. Loved the house, location, and sweet little city of Saugatuck.

Super clean, great location.. Blue Whale

Posted: May 13, 2021

This house would be excellent for a family with children or two to three couples. Plenty of beds, great kitchen and very nice yard. It’s only a couple blocks to town.. an easy walk. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything was excellent

A great time!

Posted: May 8, 2021

A beautiful chalet, well maintained, with great views. In fact, sunset pictures became our family tradition as various members of the family stayed at the chalet. Ethan and Charles could not be more responsive or helpful. Beds are firm and comfortable, kitchen is unbelievably well stocked, and couches scream out for an afternoon nap. We stayed for two months and had zero issues. A real gem.

Nice Place

Posted: May 1, 2021

Stayed several nights at this airbnb. Great space, and great location. The bed is hard and that took some getting used to, but no other issues. Will be back.

We had a great time!

It was a great place to stay.

Million dollar view!

Nice weekend. Absolutely beautiful location. The house was nice and clean. Good communication from owner. Nothing fancy, you're paying for the location. Close to shops and food. We will be back.

Amazing little get away!

Posted: Apr 11, 2021

Perfect for a couple to just spend sometime out doors & together ! The hot tub is an amazing feature ! Thank you guys so much this weekend was amazing. Such a cute town & perfect location to everything

Amazing place

Posted: Apr 7, 2021

Thank you ! This is what we were looking for exactly for a quiet family/girls trip get away. The property was meticulous!

Lovely as always

Posted: Apr 5, 2021

This was our 3rd stay; great property, location. This time, my emails were found later in the owner's "spam folder" and once we figured that out, the communication was seamless. I'd recommend the property manager to check in on guest after they check in. Also, guests may follow up to their email with a phone call or text - owner very responsive! We had a nice time and look forward to coming back.

Main stay cottage

Posted: Apr 5, 2021

Ethan’s ranch home was the perfect relaxing family getaway. Decor was simple and thoughtful. Bathrooms were clean, and I was pleasantly surprised how the well stocked towels. You must read the laminated rules of Ethan’s home on day one or before arrival. It’ll be nice to return next year knowing his place will remain well maintained. We liked the hammock, hot tub, covered fire pit, and public tennis and basketball hoops in the back.

We try and get away once a year. We have five couples and this is the perfect house for it. We love the pool room, patio, hot tub and kitchen gives us ample space to cook and enjoy each other.

Beautiful Stay!

We loved everything about this place! Beautifully decorated, cozy yet spacious, lots of amenities and close to everything downtown Saugatuck has to offer! We will be back!

Perfect getaway

This house lives up to everything you see. We were celebrating Christmas with our family. Wonderful hot tub, fireplace, and pool table. We even woke up to snow! I would love to stay here when the weather is warmer.


Posted: Dec 13, 2020

Spectacular setting! Was there when the bars and restaurant were shut down. you could use a new toaster and coffee pot and some curtains in the 2nd bedroom we enjoyed the fire pit out side. we may try it again. we are looking for a get away place. Dick Kolb

Long Weekend

Posted: Dec 5, 2020

We were very happy with our stay. My wife made me take off a half star because there was only one wine glass. The stairs were a concern with little kids, but otherwise it was a great stay.

Beautiful, well-stocked home

Posted: Dec 4, 2020

This home had everything we needed for our stay. I was very impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked, it had everything we needed to cook all of our meals at home. Perfect, quiet location on the hill and just a quick walk to downtown Saugatuck. The fireplace provided cozy warmth during the chilly evenings. Overall the home was very clean and comfortable - will definitely stay here again. Would love to take advantage of the screened in porch during the warmer months!

Wonderful weekend

Was suppose to be a girls weekend away but ended up being my husband and I. Wonderful spot and very well kept was perfect for us 2. Very clean and cozy. I would recommend and hopefully will be back again.

A great weekend

Posted: Nov 8, 2020

We had a wonderful weekend the house was wonderful and well stocked,

Convenient Docking

Posted: Nov 5, 2020

The docking was very convenient and easy to access. The only reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars is because the duck and geese droppings covered the dock consistently. I would recommend that the docks be cleaned regularly to remove the loads of droppings from the docks. It was quite disgusting at times.

Exceptional view, wonderful home

Posted: Oct 30, 2020

We had a wonderful getaway weekend at Ethan’s home. The view is breathtaking and the surrounding area had so much to offer.

Excellent place to stay. It is very comfortable, convenient and well appointed. The perfect get-a-way.

Wonderful Weekend Away

Posted: Oct 24, 2020

We had a great time. Ethan made our stay very easy. The cottage was clean and just perfect. There was a box fan in the closet which was a win.

Tucked away tranquility

Posted: Oct 24, 2020

Gorgeous home tucked away with fantastic views. Like many rentals, home furniture is a little worn, but the space for large groups and beauty of this place makes up for it. Only down side is we not only had to strip all the beds, but take all laundry up to laundry room, all trash out, plus there were no spices, oils, plastic wrap, etc of kitchen basics at all! So for the hefty price tag we feel the sheets should be left( especially with COvid and having to bring our own blankets)and a few basic kitchen items available. Beds were ok, not great. Home is awesome for large groups and is in a great location to nearby activities such as Saugatuck, Crane Orchards, Holland!


Posted: Oct 21, 2020

Our stay at the five eleven was perfect! The location is private, yet close to town. The kitchen is well stocked. We loved being able to bring our dog. The hot tub was an added bonus. We would love to stay here again!!


Posted: Oct 20, 2020

A stool is NEEDED to get up in the king size bed!! The hot tub was a great treat after a day of exploring Saugatuck. More clear instructions to use the television with a channel menu included. We enjoyed our stay , would recommend it highly and would stay at Quaint Cottages again.

Fall Getaway in Saugatuck

Posted: Oct 7, 2020

My boyfriend and I had a little getaway to Saugatuck and booked Lucky Lucy. We could not have been MORE pleased with the cottage! It was the perfect amount of space for 2 people - even though it's a smaller space, I was especially impressed with the couch/living area. We spent some time each night watching movies and it was very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen has everything you need, the bathroom was stocked with more than enough towels, and the hot tub outside was another very cool thing we enjoyed as well. Great place!

Awesome location

Posted: Oct 5, 2020

Location was great Kitchen wonderful Stairs a bit steep to living room/bedroom Extremely clean Everything we needed

Enjoyable long weekend with friends

Posted: Oct 3, 2020

We got a few friends together to celebrate a 60th birthday. We really enjoyed the house, sharing time and meals together. It would have been nice to have been able to use the awning in the afternoons when the sun was hot but none the less we really enjoyed our time there as well as hanging out in Saugutuck.

adequate accommodations.....great location

Posted: Oct 2, 2020

Plenty of space and great location...walking distance to downtown Saugatuck. Kitchen could use updating...Bed was only full size and rather uncomfortable. Unit was clean and had all supplies needed. Shower was set up with hot/cold in reverse...could be problematic for some folks


Posted: Oct 2, 2020

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Riverwalk. Ethan was pretty responsive to my inquiries and the house was spacious and warm. There weren’t any “wow” factors concerning hospitality, but it was still a great stay. .

We had a wonderful stay at the Nightingale! The home was sparkling clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. The location is perfect -- just a short walk to the downtown shops/restaurants/etc. Ethan was always quick to respond with all of our questions. I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Saugatuck!

Overall good experience at Naples North! Tucked away on 4 acres with activities like volleyball, basketball and hot tub. Games like pool table and Ms Pac-man arcade. Toys for smaller kids to play with also. Easy access to Saugatuck and Holland Breweries. View of beach from porch across street from house. Was able to go to public beaches in the area within 5-10 miles. It was a nice few days away! Thank you!

Cute, clean, comfortable and convenient

Posted: Aug 24, 2020

The Oriole is a cute little cabin very close to downtown Saugatuck. It was spotless upon our arrival and they had good COVID guidelines in place. The screened in porch and hot tub made an already beautiful outside experience even more comfortable and fun. The mattress is firm, but I like that so it didn't bother me. Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing location!

Posted: Aug 23, 2020

We really enjoyed our stay! Very close to Saugatuck downtown and few steps to Douglas downtown. Just 10 minutes drive to Oval beach. We could rent pontoon from the dock just 5 minutes walking from us. Very comfortable for large family. Clean and neat place, very well decorated. The only thing be prepared for bugs, bring lots of bug spray as the place if right on the water!!

Beautiful Chalet 16

Posted: Aug 21, 2020

We have been coming to the Chalet's since 1991. This week was outstanding. The view of Lake Michigan from the deck, with the unobstructed view of the sunset is breathtaking. We will be back again next year.

Great Vacation!

Our 8th year visiting. this year we REALLY needed a break. the swallow did not disappoint. Clean, quiet & cozy for our family. Thank you - see you again in 2021.

Studio close to town

Posted: Aug 17, 2020

Walking into this studio I was impressed at the clean nouveau country style. There’s a queen sized memory bed and a pull out couch. Of the two, the couch was the most comfortable. The kitchen came with all the necessities. The bathroom was a fair size. All was newer and clean. The only downside is no sample soap. I’m glad I had brought a full-sized bar but an extra soap bar would have been nice for the sink. It was definitely centrally located to where we were headed and walking downtown was a breeze.


Posted: Aug 14, 2020

We love staying at the Chalet. While is is hard to see how the beachfront has been eroded by the rising water level, we really appreciate all the work that has been done to maintain two beaches on the property, as well as the rest of the facility (pools, tennis courts, the grounds). We will be back next year!

Great Poolside Location; Comfortable and Clean

Posted: Aug 13, 2020

Chalet on the Lake has been great for our family. We use it as a home base for exploring Southwest Michigan and love its proximity to Silver Beach in St. Joe's. This was our 8th year at the complex and 7th time staying in unit 39. We love being close to the pool. The unit is clean and comfortable. Would love an updated TV/DVD.


Posted: Aug 13, 2020

My family and I have been renting at Chalet for 24 years. It is my favorite place on earth. Although the beaches are lacking I will always enjoy my time there. This was my first year renting Chalet 65 and I will absolutely be rebooking for next year. Also, the new security staff was so nice and always had smiles on their faces. My family is big, but very lowkey when we are in chalet and the old security always gave us problems so it was nice to see the change there. The check-in/check-out process was so easy and fast. It was awesome having that extra hour in the morning to sleep in a bit, then get packed up. I'm excited to see the new pool whenever that ends up happening. Even if that isn't for a few years, we always enjoy both pools as they are now. As I said before, we've been coming to Chalet since I was 5, and I am 29 now, and I plan on bringing my own kids up there some day. Thank you for an excellent vacation spot. Stay safe and we'll see you next year.

Appreciate the added touches, please fix sliding door and toilet!

Posted: Aug 12, 2020

We noticed and appreciated improvements such as being provided dish soap, a sponge and paper towels. We also appreciated the cleaning supplies that were provided. The sliding glass door in Chalet #64 is very difficult to open and close and has been for years, which is frustrating. Also, our toilet was not reliable - the person who fixed it once said the plumbing needs to be reconfigured. I hope that is taken care of before next year. We had to use a toilet in another cabin, which was frustrating. The grounds seem to be in good shape. Thanks for the effort that has gone into the improvements being made!

Quaint cottage. Very clean. Great location

Adorable Cottage

The house is perfect for a couple or a family! There were many nice touches through out that added lots of charm and it was super clean! Walking distance to all the shops and a short drive to the beach.

Chalet # 71

Posted: Aug 10, 2020

We original supposed stay in Chalet # 75. We moved because the internet & TV did not work. So we stayed in Chalet # 71. The stove top only 2 burns worked. I called & they said someone would call me back & come an repair it. That did not happen. It was not clean. The were spiders. If they cleaned before got there how could there be spiders crawling around the bathroom

Wonderful Amenities and Location

Posted: Aug 6, 2020

Beautifully updated chalet. Someone spent significant time and $$ getting this one right. Very firm beds, and great work space under stairs. Lots of extras not found in other chalets, like games. Good cable package. Only reason not 5 stars was owners smoking in unit before our stay, a situation that Ethan believes has been corrected.

I am the owner

Fantastic trip

We loved our stay at Rivers Edge. It was a lovely & modern home in a private & quiet location. Great way to get away & spend time with family & friends.

We had a great time looking forward to next year, hoping to extend a stay.

Great house in Saugatuck!

Posted: Aug 2, 2020

The Nightingale is a great house in Saugatuck with a great location. The house is nicely appointed. It is an easy walk to most everything in town so you won't have to worry about finding a parking space. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Saugatuck!

We always have a wonderful time at Chalet! We loved our new cabin and hope to continue to rent it for years to come!!

Wonderful Saugatuck Getaway!

Posted: Jul 31, 2020

I've stayed at different condos in this complex in past years, but this is by far my favorite. Mermaid Cove has such a cozy and welcoming vibe - and love the location (perfect for watching sunsets!). My twins and I had a wonderful time, and would definitely return!!

Lovely place

Posted: Jul 31, 2020

We had a great time at the chalet! There were 4 adults and 2 kids and we all had enough space. The location of this chalet was perfect since we could see the lake from our deck. It will be even more perfect when the private beach is open again because the entrance is right next to this chalet, although the township beach was also super-close. We hope to come back again sometime!


Posted: Jul 29, 2020

Very Clean. Better than under other management.

Perfect getaway

Posted: Jul 26, 2020

Loved this little condo. It was clean and well maintained, close to the river and steps from everything you would want to access in town. It is a great rental for 1 or 2 people. There is certainly noise from people in the unit above, but nothing that was at odd hours. I would definitely stay here again.

Place on water street

Posted: Jul 26, 2020

Wonderful place to stay! Very walkable to everything in town! Clean quaint place. Would recommend to others. Only thing got a little noisy with people walking/running around upstairs one night.

Great location!

Chalet #35, Jul 4, 2020 - Jul 18, 2020

Posted: Jul 24, 2020

We have been staying for a week during the month of July for 43 years and the family vacation continues to be wonderful. The lake was wonderful this year and the new staff were very friendly. The view from this Chalet is amazing! Some living room furniture could use updating, it would be appreciated. The floor in front of the sliding door is decaying and needs some assistance before an accident happens.

Cozy Summer Getaway

Posted: Jul 22, 2020

The Oriole was the perfect place for our little weekend getaway. From the cleanliness to the clear instructions, it made our stay stress free. Our only minor suggestion would be to have an air pump for the bikes, as the air seemed a bit low. Other than that, we will definitely return next time we are in the area!


Posted: Jul 22, 2020

The lake was beautiful and we got to do all the wonderful things we wanted to do. Very happy with our stay!!!!

The Perfect Place

Posted: Jul 21, 2020

Fantastic, little cottage for two people! The location is ideal: close to the where the action and food is, but not in the middle of it. It was nice to have access to the bikes. We enjoyed the hot tub and spent a lot of time in the screened-in porch. The only negative is the tiny shower. We will stay there again if we are in the area!

Great location and amenities

Posted: Jul 20, 2020

9 of our family members enjoyed our long weekend at Serenity Now. There was plenty of room for eating (indoors and out), sleeping, cooking and chilling. We spent most of our time on the front porch or back patio. It was wonderful being a couple blocks from town so we could walk to all the shops and restaurants and not have to worry about finding parking. The kitchen was well stocked and provided everything we needed to cook all our meals. Would definitely stay there again.

No beach is a big deal, but comfy units

Posted: Jul 15, 2020

We stayed in Chalet 92, with family staying in Chalet 91. My comments on the unit: They are all individually owned, and all different. Chalet 91 had AC units in the bedrooms AND living room, and Chalet 92 just had them in the bedrooms. That said, even though it was a very hot week, the bedroom ACs were sufficient to cool the downstairs when needed. Both have very nice screened porches, enough kitchen supplies, and 91 had beach chairs and pool noodles that we appreciated. The Wifi was good but we had nearly no cell phone signal there. Beds were comfortable enough. The facility - This place promotes a private beach and has photos of the beach. The beach is gone - the high Lake Michigan levels have destroyed the stairs going down to it. You can get to the adjacent public beach on foot, and we did, but were lucky the public beach parking was closed due to Covid so it wasn't crowded since it's only a small beach. We rented these houses specifically for the beach.

Beautiful condo!

Posted: Jul 12, 2020

Beautiful condo & in a perfect location. We were able to park our car at the condo & walk everywhere. The condo is well decorated, very comfortable & Ethan has everything you need. Plenty of bath & kitchen towels and kitchen is very well stocked. Also loved sitting on the balcony & watching the boats go by. Thanks Ethan!!


Posted: Jul 9, 2020

We had an excellent experience. The policies and procedures were very clear during this time of COVID. The chalet was exceptionally clean and the location was superb!


Posted: Jul 8, 2020

Great Location! Perfect for two

Posted: Jul 6, 2020

My wife and went here for a little get away and we were within walking distance of all shops and restaurants. A short drive from the beach and state park hiking trails. Would do again.

great views and quiet escape

Posted: Jul 5, 2020

Blue Zen was a perfect retreat for the two of us to have a few days of rest. It is off-the-beaten path and surrounded mostly by woods and a quiet part of the Kalamazoo river. All we heard day and night were birds and the occasional quarreling squirrels. Although it feels isolated, it is a short drive from Saugatuck, Douglas, and Holland. The cottage was immaculately clean, the bed comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our food. The only down-side of the cottage is that it is very small. However, other than a small bathroom with a minuscule shower, the size of the place is fine for two people. If you bring more people, anyone staying at the second bedroom has to walk through the main bedroom to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night -- otherwise must walk out of the house and re-enter by the living room, not an easy task. Check in is a bit late at 4 pm. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay there and will consider going back there for another get away.

Perfect for families!

Posted: Jul 3, 2020

We loved staying at this vacation rental with our two boys (ages 4 and 5). It was clean, cozy, and had everything we needed. It’s location in a quiet neighborhood that was just a few blocks from downtown and a great playground was perfect. We’d stay there again for sure.

Quaint Cottage

Posted: Jul 1, 2020

We stayed at the Oriole for a quick getaway. The property was well-appointed and located just a few minutes from downtown Saugatuck. We enjoyed being able to walk downtown for dinner and drinks and walk back to soak in the private hot tub. We appreciated that the Oriole was clean and it was clear that the owners were talking COVID precautions. We would definitely return to the Oriole or another Bird Center property in the future.

Quite Quaint & Perfect Location

Posted: Jun 28, 2020

Our stay truly was so quaint. At arrival, we were impressed by the cleanliness of the cottage. All of the bedding was so impeccably clean and the setup was conducive to relaxation. Both my friend and I work long hours during the work week and we feel rejuvenated by our stay. We loved our short walk to downtown Saugatuck and the hot tub was an added bonus. The hot tub was very clean and felt so private. We hope to return very soon.


Posted: Jun 27, 2020

Wonderful place to stay

Posted: Jun 23, 2020

The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of space to relax and enjoy our stay. The location is perfect as it is a 5 minute walk to town for shopping and dining. The rental agency was very helpful both before and during out stay. I would recommend the house for couples or a girls/sisters stay!

Cute and Very Clean House

Posted: Jun 22, 2020

The House was amazing. And Great location in Saugatuck. My entire family was very pleased. We will go back if we have another opportunity. Highly recommend.


Posted: Jun 21, 2020

We had a wonderful time! Many memories. Would have been nice to have known the beach was unavailable. The public side was open, which was nice.

I loved my stay it’s my Chalet. The grounds looked good except the burn site of the old guard shack

Posted: Jun 1, 2020


Posted: May 2, 2020

Everything about our two month stay was perfect. Well, the weather could have cooperated more...but that's about it. The chalet was as advertised, right on the lake. Fully loaded with kitchen utensils and way more. Ethan and Charles could not have been more helpful, answering all questions promptly and following up if necessary. We will book again!


Posted: Apr 2, 2020

Wonderful place! Super clean, great location, highly recommend!


Posted: Mar 11, 2020

Our second time staying! We love the little cute!

511 is a Piece of Heaven in Beautiful Saugatuck

Posted: Feb 29, 2020

Do yourself a huge favor and use the 511 as your chosen place to reside! Additionally if you have multiple folk in your party (there are three fantastic bedrooms), try and snag the master bedroom with its equally lovely bathroom and glorious shower, and a door that leads directly to the luxurious hot tub which at 104 degrees feels lovely even on the 30 degree eve in which we indulged ourselves! There is also a beautiful kitchen, with a microwave and dish washer fully stocked with all your needs for cooking. Also, the 511 is about only 10 miles from Holland, which has a Meijer and Wal-Mart and is also a great town to visit when in MI! But if you prefer to stay close to Saugatuck, the 511 is also merely minutes from all the charming shops and restaurants downtown, and a very quick drive to the beautiful beaches! The 511 also provides a large TV with Netflix and Amazon, and many many wonderful books, if you prefer staying in and relaxing! Enjoy! We sure did!

Very clean, comfortable, and cute! Easy instructions for check in/check out and bonus of a hot tub! We would definitely stay again.

Relaxing Winter Escape

Posted: Feb 18, 2020

We had a lovely stay in The Oriole. It was a perfect sized cottage for my husband and I and was centrally located. The bed was quite firm, but still comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

Cozy Clean Cottage near the beach and the town. Love the hot tub!

Posted: Feb 7, 2020

The Oriole is a nice cozy cottage, great for a romantic getaway in Michigan. It's within walking distance to all the nice shops, restaurants and sights in Saugatuck. The cottage was very clean, the bed was comfortable and firm, the Wi-Fi worked, the heat definitely worked, the shower was nice and the hot tub was very relaxing. Make sure to pack some tea bags and coffee grounds as those are not provided. I'd stay here again and recommend it.

Wonderful place!

Posted: Jan 25, 2020

This is a fun, little space from which to launch your Saugatuck adventure. Super clean, nicely decorated, and has most of what you'd need for making basic meals. The queen-size bed was a bit too soft for our backs, but was not a real problem. In the winter, guests should be prepared to shovel their own snow. A couple of wine glasses and a tea kettle in the kitchen would be helpful additions. But we used the coffee cups for our wine and did just fine! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

fall weekend in Saugatuck

Posted: Nov 22, 2019

Mermaid Cove was a great home base for a weekend away from Chicago. The house was warm and had everything we could need- a well stocked kitchen was very helpful. We used the living room fire place all weekend- easy and toasty! Seeing the sunrise and the sunsets from the house and the porch were a treat each day. We had a few issues with the front door not locking, and the door in the middle guest room not able to shut (due to the furniture placement), but nothing that would prevent us from recommending Mermaid Cove, and coming back- thank you, Ethan, for being responsive when we had questions.

10 Star Place To Stay!!!!

First thing my wife said when she walked in is ....I could live here. The town this is located in is simply amazing plenty of little shops & Holland is minutes away which has everything from dining to shopping. We are already planning on coming back in 2020

Four Generations Cottage was a great experience

Posted: Oct 24, 2019

We had a wonderful time, the cottage was very comfortable, had everything we needed. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here and would definitely rent it again the next time I come to Saugatuck.

So peaceful and quiet. Home was very clean and well kept. Only complaint would be that everything froze in the refrigerator ( freezer needs major defrosting. Great location with easy parking !

We absolutely loved the house and it was soo close to the downtown area. Literally a 5 minute walk! Hope to book another trip back next year!

Girls weekend

Posted: Aug 2, 2019

We had a great stay in the farmhouse, it was roomy enough for all of us and clean. We really enjoyed the screened porch, that is where we were most of our stay visiting with each other. This home has been updated beautifully and is very accommodating for get togethers. I would highly recommend it!

Great visit

Posted: Jul 29, 2019

What wonderful accommodations at the Hummingbird. We walked everywhere we wanted to go! Very clean and well appointed space. We had everything we needed for preparing quick meals. Thank you!


Posted: Jul 26, 2019

We were having a Girls Reunion and our stay was perfect. With 10 women, we were unsure if the accommodations would be nice for each of us. They were excellent and comfortably held us all from sleeping, to eating, to just relaxing with our laughter! Could not have asked for better!

We have been renting the Swallow for several years and enjoy our stay. It is only a blocks walk into town & and is very clean. It has recently been updated and looks great. The only thing it needs is a chest of drawers in the bedrooms to put your clothes and towel racks in the bathrooms. Otherwise, we enjoy our stay each year and the fact we can bring our dog is wonderful. I would recommend it to everyone.

Great house for summer weekend!

Posted: Jul 15, 2019

We had a great time at Naples North. It was clean, roomy, and had so many fun activities from volleyball to a pool table and lots of yard space for bocce and spike ball. The only downside was that the private beach access was not available this year due to how high the water is (which is no fault of the owners), but I do wish we were aware of this before arriving so we could have more adequately planned for that. We still had a wonderful time in the sun and I would recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Beautiful space and getaway

Posted: Jul 14, 2019

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Blue Whale! We will definitely be back again. Everything was perfectly set up for us, check in and check out was easy. The home is beautifully decorated. It really felt like a getaway. Our only comments would be to add blackout curtains to the kids room. They found it hard to sleep in after later evenings. Otherwise fantastic! Thank you!

Great short stay!

Posted: Jul 11, 2019

It was a beautifully-situated, charming little cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed it and being so close to the town. A couple of mirrors in the bedrooms would have been useful. We had a bit of a problem with the temperature controls. It suddenly went back to 69 degrees all the time! The bathroom is a bit small with only one sink. But our experience overall was excellent. Thank you.

Lucky Lucy is Truly Lovely

Posted: Jul 8, 2019

Great location for easy walk into town or access to the bike trail. Studio layout that is brand-new and beautifully furnished. The queen-size bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The only things missing were a dresser and a closet but if you're living out of a suitcase, they can be overlooked. We would stay here again.


Posted: Jul 4, 2019

Perfect location for walking to shops and restaurants. Well appointed. Easy parking. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Easy check in. Our tub drain backed up and someone came to fix it within an hour. Yes, as with other reviews you can hear every footstep upstairs. It was my one concern with booking third location. It was never a big distraction for us to the point that it was as big deal. Book with confidence!!!!

Great Stay!

Great place to stay in downtown

Posted: Jun 21, 2019

Great location! The place to stay was really nice! You can walk right out to the downtown area. Stayed with my husband and 10 month old, it worked out great for us. The Berge, place to eat across the street was great too.

Nice and perfect for a big group

Posted: Jun 16, 2019

The house had a lot of nice amenities and open space to accommodate for a large group. There were plenty of eating space and chairs and the beds very comfortable. The queen bunk beds can be dangerous for little kids though. The kitchen lighting was dark but other than that the house was really nice.

Great time was had by all!

Posted: Jun 7, 2019

Perfect location for shopping and dining! Cottage is very clean and beautifully decorated. Hot tub was wonderful after a day of walking downtown.

Beautiful couples retreat

Posted: Jun 1, 2019

My boyfriend and I came here for a weekend to visit Saugatuck and do a wine tour in southern MI. The house is soo cozy and charmingly decorated. It has amazing views thanks to the floor to ceiling windows in the living room, an up to date kitchen, cozy bedroom, and really everything we needed! One of the bedrooms doesn’t have blinds on the windows (on every wall) which would probably scare me at night, but the other bedroom was perfect. Would definitely recommend to any couples!!

Excellent property

Riverwalk is gorgeous, week appointed and ideally located. It is very private, yet near to the fun!

Our stay at Four Generations

Posted: May 17, 2019

The home was very clean, modern (recently remodeled), and all appointments were high end. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The community was quiet and quaint. We highly recommend this to future guests.

Absolutely Perfect!

Posted: May 13, 2019

The absolutely perfect place for a Lake Michigan getaway! This stunning home is not only spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and well located, the mid century modern furniture and fully stocked kitchen are a serious competition for the natural beauties of the Saugatuck-Douglas area. Every amenity is here, along with a wonderful selection of cookbooks. A short walk takes you to downtown Saugatuck or to a beautiful, secluded marsh. Or stay home and grill on the backyard deck before soaking in the hot tub in the moonlight. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home - its three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms made it perfect for a relaxed, long weekend with friends. Don't miss the Saugatuck Dunes State Park - a hike through the quiet green forest brings you to the sparkling waters of Lake Michigan and miles of pristine beaches.

Wonderful retreat!

Posted: May 11, 2019

Four Generations was beautiful. Everything was practically brand new and clean. A mere 5 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants. The perfect getaway retreat!

Hummingbird Cottage

Posted: May 3, 2019

Cozy space close to town

Posted: Apr 19, 2019

Loved the location and the amenities! This cozy cabin is just a few minutes walk from downtown shopping, dining and entertainment. Layout was comfortable and made good use of available space to create a nice HQ for our weekend adventure. It's a studio setup with a bed, large kitchenette, and bathroom laid out on one floor in a straight line. The outdoor living space was large and included comfy couches in a screened porch. Just past that was a hot tub that easily accommodated two people, heated quickly, and held the temp even when sitting in it on a 40 degree night (fun!). Privacy was mostly not an issue with the exception of a window in the neighboring cabin that looked directly into the hot tub area and the uncovered window on the front door of the cabin. We couldn't figure out how to turn on the kitchen lights, but it wasn't that big of a deal. TV worked great with built in apps for internet streaming (logout of your Netflix account before you leave!) Bathroom was small but adequate

Checking in and out was easy. The property and location was great. Overall we had a great time.

Wonderful respite!

Posted: Apr 7, 2019

I can’t say enough great things about this place, it was just “us.” You can tell this is someone’s home, not just a space filled with ikea furnishings. Everything was really high quality from linens to dishes to the fab mid mid furniture. And the bookshelves!!! Great collection of art books, cooking, etc. we didn’t take advantage of the hot tub, but it seemed a nice add. Only thing missing was a fire pit!

Weekend getaway

Perfect little cottage for our weekend family getaway!


Posted: Mar 1, 2019

We spent the weekend at River's Edge with three couples and loved it. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the cozy couches around the fireplace, cooking in the well appointed kitchen, using the hot tub, and playing shuffle board and pool. It is in a peaceful/private location and just a quick trip to downtown Saugatuck. This place is can't miss!


Posted: Feb 26, 2019

This was an excellent place to stay, my wife and I had a wonderful time and the place was beautiful.


Posted: Feb 9, 2019

Location is everything... we walked to dinner twice - even in January! Great place to stay!


Posted: Jan 11, 2019

This is the second time we stayed. The place is clean and comfortable for 2 people. We could hear the guests downstairs, fortunately they quieted down by 10 PM or so. The cleaning fee is a bit steep considering all that guests are required to do before leaving. Because the Hummingbird is in a great location we would stay there again.

Nothing short of amazing!

Posted: Jan 6, 2019

All we could have needed to host our gathering was in the house. It made cooking and entertaining very easy. The house itself is beautiful! There was a lot of space so everyone could spread out and do separate activities. Many families who came with us want to come back to the area and specifically back to Riverwalk.

Excellent Stay

The Pros and Cons of Nightingale Cottage

Posted: Dec 8, 2018

Pros and Cons: The home was such a beautiful cottage and we had a wonderful time there . Everything about the cottage was very well situated . The only thing I can think of that was a con , is that one of the bedrooms did not have a luggage rack or any other surface to place a suitcase upon. Anyway, thank you for such a wonderful Grand Prize I was fortunate enough to win at the August Douglas Social historical costume contest. Sincerely, Dennis Bales

Manager Response: Thank you for your stay. We will add luggage racks in the cottage for future guests.

Friends Thanksgiving

Posted: Dec 6, 2018

My family and friends stayed at Naples North for Thanksgiving weekend and we had an awesome time!! The house was well equipped from the kitchen supplies to extra towels and plenty to do for kids and adults!! The hot tub was an added bonus for all of us! We mainly stayed at the house with one exception of checking out Saugatuck Brewing Co. with was a fun place!! I highly recommend this house. Just one side note, the house was across the street from the lake.

Very nice Place

we recommend this place, great location, cozy and nice.

My boyfriend and I came here for our annual anniversary getaway weekend. First time staying in Saugatuck. It was perfect! Loved the cozy romantic cottage. Hot tub was great for late night and looking at the stars even when it’s FREEZING out. Perfect location. Walking distance to downtown. 6-7 min walk to Bowdie’s (highly recommended). I will say that the cottages are VERY close to one another. But it didn’t even bother us or matter when the cottage makes you feel like you’re tucked away from the world. Beautiful in the fall with the leaves. We will be back!

The best time!

We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Whale. It was clean, organized and close proximity to downtown.

Amazing Home in the Woods!

Posted: Nov 4, 2018

I hosted an Unplug for Self-Love Retreat at this home and it was perfect in every way. The home was very clean the property management company was extremely responsive while I was planning the retreat and during our stay. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Great spot for a family vacation!

Posted: Nov 2, 2018

The house was much larger than what appears in the pictures (although the pictures look great). Our family spent most of the time socializing in the BIG kitchen. We enjoyed movies downstairs and fires outside at the great fire pit. Overall will definitely return to the area and would come back to this house! Thanks again!

Everything was clean and it was the perfect spot. Wish we had been told how loud it could be with people above us. Definitely made the stay less relaxing. Would probably look to stay elsewhere in the future because of the noise.

Girls weekend

Posted: Oct 19, 2018

Great home! Enjoyed the hot tub, fireplace, and home audio system. Very quiet and private. Only a 10 minute drive to downtown Saugatuck. Beds very comfortable. Management was quick to respond to our questions via text. Home was very clean and orderly when we checked in. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Great stay

Posted: Oct 14, 2018

Loved The Blue Whale! In excellent condition and amenities were of great quality. Waking distance to almost everything we came to do and see. Excited to return!

Delightful place to enjoy an autumn weekend.

Posted: Oct 12, 2018

It is a beautiful facility, perfectly maintained, with a great location. Looling forward to next year.


Posted: Oct 7, 2018

Great place to be for the weekend. Clean, spacious, well stocked kitchen, great location!

Great stay

Posted: Oct 3, 2018

The condo was very nice! Clean, well stocked, very nicely decorated. The size was perfect for two families (6 people total). The condo was within walking distance to downtown South Haven. Only negative is that the INDOOR pool and hot tub are closed after Labor Day. I thought the point of having these things indoors was so that you could enjoy them all year. It was my fault for not reading that in the fine print. Would love to stay here again during warmer weather to take advantage of the pool and lake! However, South Haven is an adorable town all year round.

Place was great, very clean, well appointed kitchen, nice beds and linens. Need better instructions on how to operate all televisions and direct tv. Maybe a step by step and list of TV channels available. Theresa.

Absolute Perfection!

Posted: Sep 19, 2018

My husband and I LOVED this rental! We've stayed in Saugatuck many, many times over the past 25 years, and this was by far the most wonderful place. Super clean, private, beautifully decorated. Loved the little back porch overlooking the pretty yard next door. Rental arrangements were a breeze! This roomy apartment was everything we could need, including an adorable little kitchen, plus washer and dryer. And the location............Excellent!!! We even had a view of the Kalamazoo out of one of the MANY windows. I just can't say enough. Can't wait for next year. Thank You :)

Great stay in Saugatuck

Posted: Sep 13, 2018

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Four Generations cottage in Saugatuck and were very pleased with the accommodations. The cottage was beautiful and very centrally located to town, just a couple of blocks walking distance to Butler Street, the main shopping area in town. The home was well appointed and had everything for a quiet, comfortable stay. The screened porch was great for morning coffee and the gas fireplace took off the chill in the evening. The bed was comfortable and the combination kitchen/greatroom was homey and inviting. I would highly recommend Four Generations cottage for your next stay in Saugatuck, we will definitely be back for a longer stay!

Delightful Stay!

Posted: Sep 12, 2018

The Hummingbird was the perfect getaway! It was such a fun treat to be back in my old stomping grounds and this was the perfect location to do just that in! Would recommend and will be back!

Hummingbird Labor Day 2018

Posted: Sep 11, 2018

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hummingbird over Labor Day weekend as a getaway. The Hummingbird is a charming place to stay in Saugatuck. Its location is perfect and located with an easy walk to either downtown Saugatuck or Douglas. We liked the layout and amenities of the cottage. It was just the right size for 2 people. The cottage was clean and tidy. However, we felt the bed spread and the leather sofa where a little tired looking. Clean, but a little tired. It also would have been nice to have a blanket for the bed as it only had the bed spread. We had a great time in Saugatuck and Douglas and staying at the Hummingbird worked out great for us. We would stay there again. Brett

Exceeded expectations

Posted: Sep 8, 2018

We’ve been vacationing to Michigan for the past 12 years or so and stayed in several different places. This one ranks among the best. Great yard, volleyball was a hit, plenty of room for the kids to play and the beach being right there was awesome. Not much if any sand on the beach - mostly rocks - but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wonderful Stay

Posted: Sep 4, 2018

Secluded, quiet, clean. Loved the decor. Nice view. The highlight of our stay was one night falling asleep watching a spectacular lightening show from our bedroom window. Who needs TV! Only thing we couldn't figure out was the AC in the main living area because it was toasty one of the days. Other than that we loved it!

Great location!

Posted: Sep 1, 2018

Loved how close we were to everything! Second floor was pretty quiet. Little awkward going through bedroom to get to bathroom when third person was sleeping in main room. Otherwise loved having an apartment rather than a hotel type room. Very clean and comfortable. Would stay again!


Posted: Aug 19, 2018

Loved it

Charming retreat

Posted: Aug 15, 2018

I would definitely stay here again. Very close to downtown shopping and restaurants.

3 "C's"

Posted: Aug 15, 2018

Cute! Clean! Comfortable! We really enjoyed our long weekend stay at the Sunshine Inn. It was like walking into a mini-apartment, everything we needed. Loved being right downtown and having a DESIGNATED parking spot so that when we ventured out into neighboring towns we knew we wouldn't have to fight for a spot upon our return!! Sometimes it's the small stuff that makes a big difference. Two things to know: the fridge is authentically retro, which means it's small, that being said it kept our stuff COLD and there is a DVD player, but it on the small tv in the bedroom not with the bigger tv in the living room. Neither of these issues were deal breakers for us. We would happily stay here again and recommend it to others.

Froze, Floats and Friends at the Lake

Posted: Aug 10, 2018

The cottage was the perfect meeting place for a group of friends traveling from Detroit and Chicago for a weekend of fun. We quickly discovered Virtue Cider around the corner from the cottage and spent a happy hour there. Fennville has a charming downtown. We spent our days floating on the lake and laughing it up by the bone fire at night. If you are looking for the perfect spot to have your summer lake vacation- this place is it! We hope to be back again.

Wedding Getaway

Posted: Aug 5, 2018

My wife, infant son, and I split the cost with our best friends from Arkansas for a 4 day weekend. We were married just down the road during our stay and the cottage provided the perfect location. We loved the view especially in the morning, using the fire pit and hot tub in he evening. The access to the grill was awesome, the beds were comfortable, the water pressure in the shower was awesome, and we loved the overall feel of the cottage. Our one complaint was that one night during our stay the neighbors next door had a huge party and lit off fireworks late into the night which terrified our infant son. They were also pretty rude a few times blocking the drive to get back to the cottage. Other than that we would definitely stay here again. The best morning was Monday morning when everyone left for the weeekend and it was completely quiet. Great setting for morning coffee.

Great Weekend Getaway

Posted: Jul 27, 2018

We stayed from Thursday to Sunday and loved the town. The location of this home relative to downtown Saugatuck is perfect. Although it rained 2 of the days, it did not slow us down at all really. We tried some very nice restaurants and tried to walk there when it wasn't raining. The only suggestion would be to leave early to find parking if you do drive. Great trip!

Wonderful stay

Posted: Jul 27, 2018

The Lay by the Bay accommodations made for an exceptional week in Saugatuck. The house was exactly as described with no surprises. The kitchen is beyond well equipped with nice cookware. Nice appliances. The linens throughout the home were nice quality. The television with surround sound made for an enjoyable experience whether it be the ballgame or just some background music during family game nights. Another great feature is the shuffleboard table. We had blind draw family tournaments. The exterior of the home could use some attention. The planter boxes are empty. The balcony canopy had an active bird nest and most disturbing was the number of spider webs (old and new) and bug guts over all of the windows. Those things are a part of summer at the lake, but it could use a quick power washing and window clean. Again, the whole experience was ideal. Great property. Highly recommend.


Posted: Jul 22, 2018

South Haven is such a quaint and peaceful place to visit. Our cottage was beautiful and had all the amenities that we needed. It was raining the entire time but this place saved us. We had the entire pool to ourselves. Although it rained every day we were here, we are already excited about the next stay here.

6355 Waters Edge Lane

Posted: Jul 22, 2018

This house is beautiful, spotless & has everything.... glassware for every possible drink, great dishes, cookware, 8 cork screws !!! Just bring your clothes and swimwear. The dock is super, one small suggestion, a few more recycling bags would be so nice.

Nice Condo & Convenient Location

Posted: Jul 20, 2018

The condo is nicely appointed-has all the kitchen essentials and amenities you need. The location is great. Walkable to town & Dykeman beach. Comfortable beds. We would absolutely stay here again.

Hummingbird rating

Posted: Jul 20, 2018

We really enjoyed the cottage. We were able to bring food and use the refrigerator. Very convenient to town. We would have preferred to have not been next door to kids, but overall it was great. Thank you for the easy reservations on-line too!

Well done.

Posted: Jul 19, 2018

4 ladies from my family got together and we had a lovely time. The condo was well cleaned, nice decor, and open floorplan. We loved reading, laughing, and sharing, on the balcony.

Water Street Retreat - Delightful!

Posted: Jul 18, 2018

Our stay in Saugatuck was fantastic and the location, charm and cleanliness of the Water Street Retreat was beyond my expectations. It is on the small side for 4 people but we had zero issues, especially since we spent most of our time out enjoying the area and all it had to offer. The covered porch in back was nicely shaded and even during the warmest part of the day it was quite enjoyable. The other guests were polite but you can hear people walking upstairs if you are in the lower unit. It didn't bother us at all, but be aware of the potential if you are a light sleeper. Parking was tight for our truck, so we just parked on the street - again, no issue leaving it there for several nights. This snug condo would be perfect for a couple who wants a romantic perfectly located place to stay for a few days. We will definitely be back!

Relaxing Stay

Our family of 7 plus 2 dogs had a very relaxing stay at Bluegill Hill. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Place was cute as ever, I would have liked a few hangers in the closet, a hook in the bathroom, and a mirror just to see how I’m dressed but it was cute, bed very saggy also

Nice place, great location

Posted: Jul 12, 2018

Had a great stay, accommodations were great, convenient walk to town, had a problem with the internet and air conditioning but it was resolved quickly, would stay there again.

Relaxing vacation

Posted: Jul 7, 2018

Blue Zen was a beautiful setting. Sitting by the fire pit every night was great. It was peaceful and quiet, yet close to town if we wanted to get out and do something. We would definitely stay again.

Saugatuck Family Vacation

Posted: Jul 6, 2018

Townhouse was amazing and luxuriously appointed. Cant wait to come back again bext year.

Nice stay

Posted: Jul 5, 2018

Room provided what we were looking for: within walking distance of the shops/restaurants in Saugatauk; clean; quiet/privacy. Kitchen was very nice even though we did not use anything except the frig. A bit odd having living room and bedroom upstairs but we were only there to sleep. Negatives: Bathroom needs another towel bar. Ditch the picture and put up a towel bar. Bedroom definitely needs somewhere to hang clothes. Using the stair railing wasn't too cool. A small closet could easily be put in. We didn't need it, but having a door between bedroom and living room would be useful if someone stays up watching TV and the other goes to bed. Also, a blanket would be nice - some folks don't do well with AC. All in all we had a nice stay.

Stay @ Rivers Edge

Posted: Jul 3, 2018

Beautiful - Comfortable - Convenient - Enjoyable Would definitely return THANKS !!!


Posted: Jul 1, 2018

Amazing house with tons of room. We had a nice size crowd for a birthday celebration. We all had our own rooms and plenty of room to move around, eat and relax. The house is very clean, well kept with a very spacious kitchen. The house is centrally located with lots to do in walking distance. Definitely a place to check out!


Posted: Jun 28, 2018

We would definitely stay here again. Great place, close to everything.


Posted: Jun 22, 2018

We had a great stay. We are both teachers. If you ever have gaps in stays mid-week that you would like to fill for a reduced rate please let us know.

Nightingale Stay

Posted: Jun 22, 2018

Really enjoyed our visit to Saugatuck area & the cottage was great! nicely furnished & decorated, well equipped with all the essentials, enjoyed the hot tub,too! We did experience one night with noisy neighbors in the adjoining apartment, but Ethan spoke to them & the problem was solved. Looking forward to another visit!!

Amazing. Relaxing. A must!

Posted: Jun 18, 2018

Location was outstanding. Great space , awesome kitchen and bedrooms. Lots of fun for all.


Posted: May 31, 2018

The accommodations were fabulous! Plenty of room and within walking distance of downtown. The backyard hot tub, fire pit and grill were added bonuses. We will be back!

Awesome stay!

Posted: May 25, 2018

We LOVED our stay at River Walk. Our whole group fit very comfortably, the house was beautiful, and everything was just perfect for our weekend get away to celebrate my sister. Definitely recommend!

Review of a Little Piece of Heaven (VRBO)

Posted: May 19, 2018

The booking was straight forward and simple enough to complete. The directions to the VRBO and the realtor lock were also as stated. The house was well kept, neat, and absolutely perfect. The location was ideal for us (nicely secluded) and the view was awesome all the way around because there were so many windows. The view from the back deck was spectacular overlooking the Kalamazoo River and its overflow wetland. For birders, the birds were abundant and no need to leave the house or porch to take pictures. We felt it was a perfect place for us; the interior of house was almost as great as the view. Overall we gave this place and the booking agent an A+. As an example of why we gave the agent an A+: The 1st morning the coffee pot didn't work so we called the agent. We left for some local activities for a few hours and upon arriving at the house we had a NEW pot that worked perfectly) Kudos to agent and house.

Wonderful experience

Posted: May 18, 2018

I booked this cottage for a long weekend with the family and in-laws. All worries were relieved upon opening the front door and realizing that the photos online do not do this place justice. Newly remodeled and nicely furnished. Tall ceilings give this place the feeling that it’s even larger than it is. It rained most of the weekend so we didn’t get to take advantage of the backyard, but it looked nice. I will definitely be booking here again.

Cozy little apartment right in town

Posted: Mar 24, 2018

Chose this cute place to celebrate an anniversary. Had everything we needed to have a nice getaway. Near everything in town, nicely decorated and cozy. Perfect!

Ice Breaker Fest Stay

Posted: Feb 12, 2018

This place was perfect. Clean, had everything we needed and roomy. You can walk to town and to the beach. I'd stay here again!


Posted: Jan 26, 2018

Our stay was perfect. The cottage was clean and well kept. We would stay again!!

Very Cozy Winter Wonderland!

Posted: Jan 4, 2018

My family treated our mother to a "Saugatuck Winter Adventure!" for her Christmas present this year! This cottage fit all of our needs perfectly! We needed: 3 bedrooms, large kitchen, and Saugatuck! This cottage had everything on our list plus a few bonuses--a FIREPLACE!! There was a ridiculous blizzard our day of arrival and we almost didn't make it! The fire was exactly what we needed to thaw ourselves out!! There was also a tempting hot tub-- (but 9 degree temps and sideways blowing snow crushed that idea! Ha!) This cottage has a LOT of room! On Christmas Day, we were able to cook a large dinner, play board games, open presents by the fire, and just relax. The next day we ventured out into the tundra and were delighted to find several shops and art galleries were still open for the season! We enjoyed coffee at Uncommon Coffee Roasters in the morning (best Lavender Latte ever!) And had dinner at The Southerner that night (our favorite restaurant in town!!) We all had a great time!

Very Pleasant Stay

Posted: Jan 3, 2018

The cottage is in a great location, close to Saugatuck and Grand Rapids. The view of the marshland is great. The bed in the main bedroom is over the top comfortable. Internet was not working

Manager Response: Thank you for your feedback. We did find there to be a bad SIM card for the internet and it has been fixed. Our apologies that you had issue with it. Thank you for staying with us!


Posted: Nov 10, 2017

Fantastic Stay!

Posted: Nov 1, 2017

Water Street Retreat was perfect! The location is ideal for walking to everything Saugatuck has to offer. The rental was clean and had everything we needed for our get away. We were supposed to be celebrating our 20th anniversary in New Orleans but Hurricane Nate had us heading North at the last minute. So glad we found this place! We willl be back.

Perfect for a fall weekend getaway

Posted: Oct 30, 2017

Very nice place for a weekend getaway! It was very clean and had all of the amenities we needed. It was also very close to downtown Saugatuck. Would definitely stay here again!

Excellent location. Beautiful retreat.

Posted: Oct 25, 2017

Completely enjoyed our short stay at the Water Street Retreat. Loved the location and the retreat was spotless, full supply of towels, the kitchen was perfect. Have already recommended this place to friends and have started thinking of when we can return.

Loved it

Posted: Oct 23, 2017

Rented the property for a family celebration of Grandma's 90th birthday. We had a wonderful time and the location was perfect! We will return soon.

Swallow stay

Wonderful location in Saugatuck. Walk to town. Fun shops and plenty of restaurants. Beds very comfy. Porch (enclosed) perfect for reading or daydreaming. Easy to use cable and gas fireplace

Awesome place

The place is so good and beautiful. Enjoyed our stay a lot. Definitely a place I would recommend.

Fall getaway

Posted: Oct 14, 2017

Cute cottage, very rustic, great outdoor entertainment ( fire pit and hot tub). Loved the kid friendly atmosphere and sooo close to fenn valley winery. Overall a nice place to stay for a short getaway

Saugatuck refuge

Posted: Sep 20, 2017

Small but OK for couple not spending a lot of time at the cottage. Pleasant screened porch for coffee and playing card games/backgammon. Fairly private location off the road and up against a wooded hill. Away from noise of town but a short walk to the restaurants and shopping. Upkeep is very good. Hot tub worked well.

BlueGill Hill was fantastic

Posted: Sep 15, 2017

We had a wonderful weekend at this house. We only wish we could have stayed longer. The beds were comfortable, all the cooking materials we needed were there (even sugar and coffee filters). There were plenty of nice clean towels. The hot tub was the perfect temperature and is big! The sweet next door neighbor offered to stack wood at the fireplace for our bonfire later. Perfect night for s'mores. The view of the lake is beautiful!!!! We would like to come back, this would be our dream lakehouse to buy one day

Great get away

Posted: Sep 13, 2017

Our group travels every year to find a new, fun place to explore. We have finally found one that we want to revisit. This house is not only in a great location, but it is great for multiple couples. The house is very clean and is one of the most unique designs we have seen. The kitchen is well stocked with top end appliances. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. The back porch was very nice with a great view of the lake. The house is within a quarter mile walk to the downtown area. The location is optimal for people that want to explore the downtown Saugatuck area. The house is also close to the bridge to Douglas which allows for a quick drive to the area of Oval Beach and Douglas. Our contact with the rental company was very responsive to our basic questions. We really appreciated that. All in all, this was one of the best experiences we have had with a rental home and location. We will absolutely be back. Thanks for helping us have a great weekend.


Posted: Aug 26, 2017

Great place for adults and kids

Posted: Aug 18, 2017

We had an excellent time at Bluegill. It was clean, easy to get to, and well stocked with all the things you need to cook and shower. The hot tub was awesome to watch the sun set on the water. It was on the water, close to grocery stores, and the neighbors were quiet and friendly. We comfortably fit 6 adults and 2 babies. The only ding I would give, is that 2 people from management came while we staying, one to let us in and do a check and one to check the hot tub. They both were nice and quick, so it wasn't much of a bother. Overall we have plans to rent here again next year.

Perfect home!

Posted: Aug 18, 2017

Had a great experience here! We use VRBO all the time, and this was one of our best experiences. The home is beautiful, well appointed, high quality furniture, appliances, clean, with a great location to boot. If you're looking for a trip to Saugatuck, we highly recommend this home.

Fantastic night at the Swallow

Posted: Aug 16, 2017

The Swallow was very comfortable. We loved the screened-in porch and the hot tub. It was conveniently located with the shops and restaurants within walking distance. It is stocked with cleaning supplies for the kitchen and the attention to detail was much appreciated (they even had needle and thread just in case!). Our teenaged daughter was very happy with the Wi-Fi access.

Great Stay

Posted: Aug 9, 2017

Really enjoyed the home - had everything we needed!

Great Stay

Posted: Aug 6, 2017

The location was perfect - close to everything. The unit was nicely decorated and very clean. The booking process, payment process, and getting into the unit was a breeze. We will stay again! The only (very slight) negative was that we had one very loud "walker"above us. The other person you could hardly hear when they walked. They kept similar hours as us so it wasn't really a problem.


Posted: Aug 4, 2017

six of us went for our girls weekend trip & it was absolutely perfect for us. We loved the front porch to have our coffee in the morning & having 2 bathrooms was a plus for sure.. Being a house cleaner myself it was very clean so A plus for that.. We are thinking of booking it for next years trip as well.

Great House

Posted: Aug 4, 2017

We have been going to Saugatuck for 15 years. We've rented several different houses in town. The Swallow was clean, comfortable and close to town. Beds were comfortable. We really didn't spend a lot of time at the house but I would for sure recommend it to anyone.

Exceeded our expectations

Posted: Aug 3, 2017

Everything about River's Edge impressed us. The house itself is stunning, we loved walking to the dock to take the kayaks a stand-up paddle board out on the lake, it's a super short drive to town, the hot tub was an amazing feature, the games downstairs were terrific, and the rental company very responsive to our questions. We would definitely stay again. The only things to note is that the walls are very thin upstairs and the temperature is verrrrry cold on the lower level. Plus, I had thought we would have a lake view from some of the photos we saw online but it's a short walk and with the golf cart it's an even shorter walk so we didn't miss the lake at all.

Another great time in Saugatuck

Posted: Aug 1, 2017

This is our 8th year coming to Saugatuck. We have been staying in town at various locations. The Oriole was just perfect for the two of us. Very clean and comfortable. The screened in porch was a major plus as was the outdoor hot tub. Even though we only did breakfast the kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary items for dinner and cooking. You'll need to bring spices etc and other items for dinner as this cottage doesn't doesn't supply them. Not a show stopper. The street was quiet and the breeze at night was refreshing sittin on the porch. After a 5.5 mile hike in Saugatuck state park south trail the hot tub was what the doctor ordered. We always stay in town and found this little gem to be one of our favorites. We will return in a heartbeat. Thank you

Perfect Getaway!

Posted: Jul 21, 2017

This place was perfect for a low-key, long-weekend. It was cozy, clean and private. The hot tub at night is almost secluded-feeling. Downtown Saugatuck is only a 5 minute walk. The kitchen hardware is well stocked in case you choose to prepare a meal in. I've been crowing about this place since we've been back! I wouldn't hesitate to book it again.


Posted: Jul 15, 2017

We loved the condo! Beautiful view of the lake. The weather was amazing and we enjoyed the balconies! It had all the amenities and is close to town! We hope to be back again next year.

Nightingale Girls' Trip

Posted: Jun 28, 2017

We loved our stay at Nightingale. The location was great, and check-in was easy. It was also nice to have newer appliances such as an ice maker, dishwasher, and washer dryer. We loved the larger couch for all four of us, and the large table for playing games. The hot tub made it a perfect stay!

Great Place! Would recommend.

Posted: Jun 26, 2017

Very clean and had all the amenities. The owners thought of everything. A decent walk to downtown Sagautck but short walk to Downtown Douglas. We loved the view and enjoyed fishing within a few steps. Would stay again!


Posted: Jun 14, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the Swallow. Our family has been coming to Saugatuck every summer for more than 20 years and have stayed in each of the Bird Center Cottages. They are clean, close to town and have all of the ammenities one would want for an enjoyable family vacation. Will definately return!

What a great place! The place was beautiful. Ethan more than made up for a small assess issue at check in with a generous gift card to Phil's (which we loved). We will be back!

Ladies Weekend

Posted: May 1, 2017

Thank you for making our booking and our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We absolutely loved the accommodations and the close proximity to town. Every detail was thoroughly covered. We really found the Swallow to be a comfortable and relaxing getaway! Thank you!

Great Rental!

Posted: Apr 2, 2017

I've stayed at a couple rentals in Michigan, and this was one of the best. Wonderful little house with nice furnishings and appliances. The hot tub was great (especially since it was off-season) and takes two minutes to walk to downtown Saugatuck. Would definitely recommend!

Fun in Saugatuck

Posted: Nov 7, 2016

The Water Street Retreat was a perfect setting for a weekend away. We could not have asked for a better location. The condo had everything you would need while you in the unit. Fully stocked kitchen for us to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Comfortable seating, dining table, bedding and bed were great. Bathroom was nice and shower pressure was great with lots of hot water. Everything was updated and super clean. Checking in and out was very efficient. Wouldn't definitely return and recommend to others. Thanks again.

Wonderful Stay!

Posted: Oct 2, 2016

This place has the feel of a quaint, cozy cottage with all the modern amenities. And as many have said it is only 5 minutes from Butler and Water Streets. We had a great time and Ethan was very responsive.

Great location!

Location was great! Unit was super cute! Only negative was the AC is a wall unit and does not cool the main bedroom very well but there is a ceiling fan in there that helps.

Swallow Stay

Posted: Sep 16, 2016

Our girl's weekend getaway at the Swallow was perfect. Check-in process was extremely easy and the location so close to town was super convenient. The house and hot tub were both extremely well taken care of and the decor was adorable (I really want that dog clock). My girlfriends and I all agree we want to make this a yearly trip and book all three of the cottages on sight for a weekend. Thank you so much!

great Labor Day Weekend!

Posted: Sep 10, 2016

We stayed at Swing Bridge #40 over the Labor Day weekend. The condo was great for our family of 6 adults. The furnishings, towels, and overall decor was beautiful. We loved the location. It was close to everything we wanted to do. Even walking distance to several things. We enjoyed the ping pong table and the keyless entry. That made it very convenient for comings and goings for everyone not having to worry about keys. Gave a 1/2 star off for one TV not working and no blinds (upper windows) which was a problem in the morning in lower level bedroom. We would definitely recommend #40 and would stay here again.

Manager Response: Thank you for the input. The owner is ordering blinds for the lower level. Also a phone call and a message to the office we would have taken care of the tv. Thank you

Charming Decor Perfect Location

Posted: Aug 17, 2016

We have been coming to Saugatuck for 14 years and this is the first time at Water Sheet Retreat. Its the perfect location within walking distance to everything! More than enough room for a family of 4. Everything was spotless & so clean when we checked in. Ethan & Julie ( from the managment team) were excellent to work with as I had some specialty questions prior to our trip. Abundant supply of towels & blankets in condo. Full kitchen was amazing! Priced right for a wonderful 3 day getaway for my family! We will be back!

We were so happy with this great little apartment for our stay in Saugatuck. It was so well maintained and had everything we needed. The porch was a big bonus, and it felt very private even though other buildings were nearby. The WiFi worked great, and parking was so easy. Check-in and check-out were super simple. One of the biggest benefits was the location. It was nice that it wasn't right in the middle of the action, but it was no more than a 10 minute walk to get to the heart of Saugatuck or to the restaurant district in Douglas. And just a quick drive to the beach, the dunes, and the nearby wineries!

60th Birthday Weekend

Posted: Aug 13, 2016

Six adults visited Saugatuck for the weekend and we all enjoyed our stay at Swallow Cottage! It was plenty of room for us & not too far from the shops & restaurants. The cottage was just like the pictures online, very clean & well equipped! We would definitely recommend it!

Naples North - Great Family Vacation House

Posted: Aug 7, 2016

Great for kids and adults. Lake Michigan was great for fishing.

Cute house and geeat location

Posted: Jul 26, 2016

Our family just rented this cute cottage for our first vacation and we had a great time! House has nice amenities...washer/dryer being a big win for us with daily visits to the beach! Good comfy couches and nice living space for small family/group. One thing I wish I had known beforehand with two little kids was that the bath is a shower vs tub, which was a little more challenging for us. We were sort of missing an outdoor patio/hangout spot. The hot tub area could easily be made to include this and it would be a great addition! Overall, a very nice spot and we are happy with our stay. Just adding my comments to help paint the picture for future renters!


Posted: Jul 19, 2016

First and foremost the Nightingale offers a convenient short walk to all the attractions of the downtown area...the cottage is very clean the rooms are of ample size and amenities are suitable for a long stay....We failed to give it 5 stars due to only 1 bath, limited television stations for downtime relaxation and no privacy on front door...we had to hang a towel on the door to provide nighttime privacy since the front door is directly on one of the main streets getting into town.... Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels and kitchen utensils etc... Would stay again but would hope our concerns would be addressed Saugatuck is a beautiful little town with a lot to offer for everyone youy and old

Anniversary getaway

Posted: Jul 2, 2016

We had a wonderful time at quaint cottages. The location was excellent! perfect location to walk to anything in Saugatuck. The chain ferry to take you over to Oval beach on Lake Michigan is just across the street. The condo itself was very clean, true to the pictures and very comfortable. The owners are very easy to work with. It also was a great spot if you want to venture to Holland or Grand Haven, which is what we were looking for. A few things to mention: the best grocery store is a 5 min. drive to Douglas, if you go to eat at the Red Dock bring cash, they don't accept cards. It is a very laid back, back porch kind of place with awesome views, but more of a lunch location. You can even pull right up to the dock in your boat! Phil's bar and Grill was excellent! Go early! Sometimes a long wait. The parking space was small. A few nights we parked on the street because a couple of other renters had SUVs and we didn't feel like trying to squeeze in. I would definitely rent here again!

Great location

Posted: Jun 27, 2016

My wife and two sons visited Saugatuck this past weekend. This townhome was brand new and was perfect for our family. We could have easily had another three or four people in this location comfortably. You can walk to downtown Saugatuck or Douglass in less than 15 minutes which has great restaurants and shopping. We also rented a pontoon in Saugatuck and went out on Lake Michigan as well. We would definitely go back and stay here!

Great Stay! Modern , Clean, Location Great!

Very clean and modern

Posted: Jun 6, 2016

Enjoyed our stay here. The combination lock makes it super easy to check in and out, no keys to mess with. The condo is very clean, modern, and comfortable. Its perfect for a 2 person getaway. The kitchen has everything you need, the flat screen TV is a nice size, and its just a tastefully decorated space.

Cute, cozy, romantic

Posted: May 30, 2016

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary, and loved it! The cottage was clean and cozy, and just a short walk to the romantic downtown Saugatuck. We would definitely recommend the Oriole for any couple looking for a quick and romantic getaway!

Great stay! Would go back again!!!

Posted: Mar 25, 2016

We enjoyed staying at the swallow!! It was very clean presentable and everything was provided kitchen wise etc. Our only problem were the floors were very slippery!!! Lol otherwise it was perfect!!!!

Rest and relaxation

Posted: Feb 27, 2016

My girlfriend and I had an amazing weekend of much needed rest and relaxation celebrating my bday. The cottage is amazing not too small and not to big for 2 and everything you would need. Will likely be visiting again!

Lovely winter setting

Posted: Jan 23, 2016

Our group (3 families) spent one winter weekend at Naples North. We loved the layout of the house. The kids loved the downstairs area, playing ping pong, and using the hot tub. The kitchen was very well equipped. We cooked all of our meals and all the kitchenware we needed was provided. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were all very nice. We enjoyed the close proximity to the lake. We had a very minor issue with the grill and the caretakers returned our phone calls immediately. I highly recommend a stay at Naples North.

Perfect New Year get away

Posted: Jan 6, 2016

Upon our arrival, the cottage fit exactly what the description said. It was cozy, small, a lot of amenities, and perfect for just the two of us. We did plan on using everything that the cottage had to offer so even in 30 degree weather, the hot tub was a great way to just relax. The cottage was very clean and check out was pretty easy given the instructions. The only thing that my fiancé was a little bit uneasy about what there was no blind or shade that covered the front door. She did happen to get over it but I would have to say that that was the only dislike, which does not out weigh everything else the cottage has to offer. I would definitely recommend staying here and my fiancé and I already said we are coming back. Steve

Thanksgiving @ Swallow

Posted: Dec 5, 2015

Great place, clean; everything we needed. We'll be back for sure.


Posted: Nov 20, 2015

Very clean and everything as advertised. A small place but OK for 2. Hot tub was ready and worked well. Loved it.

Swallow- nice get away!

Posted: Oct 15, 2015

Nice home- great decor and well equipped. Very comfortable for two couples. Would return in the future!


Posted: Oct 8, 2015

Enjoyed our stay very much. House is very conveniently located and well furnished with towels, detergent, linens etc. I did find a few dirty small plates in the cabinet. I washed those, but did not check other dishes. I know that was the fault of the previous occupants. We did find the windows closed, but were unlocked. Did not like that. Also, you need brighter or more lights. Very hard to read in the evening. Would recommend The Swallow and would use it again myself.

Wonderful experience

Girls Weekend

Posted: Sep 26, 2015

This was the second year we planned a weekend at The Swallow cottage. We found it to be just perfect. We thought it was clean, ready for our stay on time, had everything we needed including plenty of parking and close to everything. Highly recommend Quaint Cottages!

Lay by the Bay August 16-23

Posted: Aug 28, 2015

This is our second year renting this house. We love it. My only negative is that they need some umbrellas on the deck. We were told we could not use the awning and there are 2 places for umbrellas to go. They deck is steel or aluminum and it gets very very hot. Umbrella would be helpful in the hot sun. Otherwise we LOVE the place. We just need a bigger place for next year. Family growing....


Posted: Aug 28, 2015

Great place to stay, everything was perfect, clean, and as described. We would definitely stay here again.


Posted: Aug 24, 2015

Great location! Didn't have to drive anywhere except the beach which we never got to because the parking lot fills up early! The house was clean except the floors made our feet black so we wore shoes the whole time we were there. Not a problem unless you have little ones. Overall we had a great time and would stay here again.

Very romantic

Posted: Aug 23, 2015

Very romantic cute and quaint cottage Would recommend to,anyone!!


Posted: Aug 7, 2015

Will stay again!

Posted: Aug 3, 2015

This was our second year at Quaint Cottages and another delightful time! With extra family to accommodate, we stayed in the larger Nightingale Cottage and were quite comfortable. I highly recommend this property for your next visit to Saugatuck!

Michele and Patrick Smith

Posted: Jul 13, 2015

My husband and I stayed at your place as a last minute getaway to celebrate and relax due to many things in our busy lives. We thought it was tastefully decorated and we loved the hot tub. Even though the place was tiny, it felt bigger with the lovely screened in porch. It had everything we needed but could have used a blind on the back door for privacy. We found that setting up the accomodations was very easy and there was no need to go to a different location for a key. It was also a great location that was just a short walk to town. We would come back again in the future.

Our stay at Oriole cottage- Summer 2015

Posted: Jul 6, 2015

We absolutely loved staying at the Oriole! Ethan was SO great to talk to on phone when I needed a question answered. Linda the housekeeper was great! I loved how someone came to check on Hot tub, very nice. Accommodations were great. It was very neat and clean. Very nice that kitchen had utensils, pots and pans to use, I did not expect that so it was a nice surprise. Overall, great experience! P.S. The screened in porch is phenomenal!!!!!!! So was Jacuzzi!! Would love to go back!

Great stay!

Posted: Jun 14, 2015

we had a great time in Saugatuk. The house was super cute, and in a great location. Close to the water and downtown, but also a short drive to nearby places. Everything was exactly as described. The only real problem we if was that the chlorine in the hot tub seemed very strong so we took it out for a few days to back off a bit on the chemicals. Everything else was fantastic! We would definitely stay there again!


Posted: May 20, 2015

This is a well appointed cottage perfect for a girl's getaway. Within walking distance, .5 mile to town. Great screened in porch. Comfortable beds and plenty of room.


Posted: May 14, 2015

Very nice; quiet, private, well appointed with quality dishes, flat ware, towels and bedding. Quite comfortable for two people and not right in the down town but very convenient to it. Would come again. It would be helpful to having a listing of the TV stations i.e. what numbers correspond to ABC, NBC,CBS, PBS, Weather channel, etc.

Great Girls Getaway

Posted: May 3, 2015

We recently spent a few days at the Swallow for a girls getaway weekend. The home could not have been more perfect for us. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable and the location was great, with only a short walk to local restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed spending time relaxing on the sunny patio and the hot tub was wonderful. I would absolutley recommed the Swallow for anyone looking for a great home base for their Saugatuck vacation. We were already planning when we will be back!

Great getaway!

Posted: Apr 30, 2015

We had a great time. The ability to login to Netflix and use the Bluetooth stereo to listen to music made time in the cottage just like home. Great location close to town - we walked to dinner! I would definitely stay again.


Posted: Apr 28, 2015

3 friends from different states met at this AWESOME cottage to celebrate a special birthday. Our weekend could not have been more perfect!!!! Great cottage quaint and cute few blocks from downtown sooo convenient.


Posted: Apr 24, 2015

I love this spot!!!! Only recommendation is a longer fenc to provide more privacy at hot tub.

Wonderful home

Posted: Apr 21, 2015

My daughter and I loved the Nightingale house. It was beautifully decorated and very welcoming. Great location for walking downtown.

Great experience!

Posted: Mar 27, 2015

First time in Saugatuk and couldn't have better words for the weekend and the house. Awesome location and perfect size!

Brandon Byczynski Stay

Our stay was very very pleasant. I have absolutely no complaints and hope to come back. The house was perfect for us.

Nice Romantic Getaway!

Posted: Jan 27, 2015

We had a wonderful experience. The cottage was very cute, especially clean and furnished. It made for the perfect way to celebrate a birthday!

Perfect for Group Gatherings

Posted: Jan 7, 2015

We headed up to Blue Gill with 7 people in the middle of winter to get away from the city. The house was perfect for us to all hang out all day playing board games and sitting by the fire. The house had absolutely everything we could have needed! We loved every minute we were there and will be back!
