Perfect house for a group of 10, spacious, stylish and perfectly stocked! The patio with fire pit and hot tub were a plus. Ethan does a great job, everything is ready for you to enjoy. We will definitely be back

Charming home

My family loved this home. Beautifully decorated with every amentity. The owners have thought of everything. Will be back! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

perfect for a quiet, multi-family gathering

Posted: May 30, 2018

This house was wonderfully decorated and prepared for our stay. More than enough towels and indoor/outdoor dining tableware, plus all appliances and a very clean gas grill/fire pit. The 3 separate bedroom areas are in 3 different corners of the house, so our party of 3 couples (kids included) all had a good amount of privacy and quiet. Off the screened-in porch we saw deer, wild turkeys, cardinals and black squirrels; we could also see them from the hot tub (which also had an outdoor shower in case you wanted to go directly from sand to tub)! There was also a public access beach was within walking distance (close to a mile, but it was completely tree-covered so not too hot, even over a 95 degree weekend). It's a bit of a hike to downtown Saugatuck, but you could do it if you were motivated and didn't have littles along for the trek. Would definitely stay here again...and tell my friends/family the same. Thanks Birch Cottage!

Tulip Time Stay at Birch Cottage

Posted: May 18, 2018

We had never been to Holland Michigan and thus never experienced Holland's "Tulip Time". Birch Cottage was a welcoming venue even if the clouds, cold temperature and rain were not what we had hoped we would find. We were fortunate to be able to extend our time by one night and greatly appreciated how easy that was. We'd be happy to return in the future, it's a lovely, well-decorated home, that is also well furnished and comfortable.

My family had a wonderful stay at this adorable cottage. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, screened in porch and the many deer who stopped by. We will be back!

Girls Weekend Success!

Birch Cottage was the perfect location for our fall girls weekend! We lived on the outdoor screened porch and enjoyed the hot tub every night. We had 6 girls but the house would comfortably sleep more. Thanks for a great weekend!

Beautiful new home with tasteful decor, comfort

Posted: Aug 9, 2017

We enjoyed this beautiful home that was all we wished for during our reunion of old friends. The kitchen was well-appointed, the screened porch was great, backyard fire pit a nice plus, and the bedrooms were comfortable. Perfect setting where we could easily walk to Lakeshore Drive and the public beach. In this almost perfect home, we only found one thing missing: a full-length mirror! The 3 bathroom mirrors didn't show it all, and the women were trying on clothes and needed to see! Other than that, no problems whatsoever. We loved it!

Birthday weekend

Posted: Jun 23, 2017

We loved this home. We rented this home as our base for a birthday weekend. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit and screened in porch. The home is beautifully decorated. The beds are super comfortable. The bunk room was a great place for the kids to hang out in their own space since it included a seperate sitting area too. We loved it and will be back. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

Great stay!

My family loved this beautiful cottage. It looks like it should be on HGTV. It is a very comfortable home with lots of nice touches and amenities. Fire pit and hot tub were a big hit. We will be back!

Absolutely perfect

Posted: Nov 4, 2016

Everything about our stay at Birch Cottage was perfect - the location, the décor, the amenities, the space and the attention to detail. The cottage had everything you could think of to make your stay memorable. The proximity to Saugatuck, Douglas and Holland gave us many good restaurants to choose from (The Wild Dog Café and Everyday People among others). And, unlike other resort areas dotted with big-box stores we found the shops and the people (owners and employees alike) to be warm and courteous. We will definitely plan another trip to Birch Cottage.

Family getaway

We loved our stay at this cottage. We have stayed in the Saugatuck/Douglas area before and this is the nicest cottage we have ever rented. I highly recommend this property. Clean, cute and comfortable! We will be back. Thanks for the lovely stay!

Loved the cottage. Super cozy. Great amenities (hot tub, fire pit and screened in porch) and location is close to beach. We were traveling with an elderly grandparent and the cottage was very accessible for them. We look forward to coming back! Thanks!!

My family enjoyed our weekend at Birch cottage. The house is super comfortable and the weather was fabulous so we were able to enjoy the hot tub, screened in porch and Firepit. They also have 4 bikes- 2 adult and 2 kids size which we enjoyed riding around. The house is located on a quiet street but only one block from Lake Michigan. Very close to downtown Douglas and Saugatuck. Great weekend. Thanks!

Bachelorette at Birch Cottage

Aside from a few issues with the heat and no wifi the house was completely perfect. We loved everything about it from the decor to the comfortable beds. The property manager, Ethan, was extremely responsive and helpful and made up for the lack or heat and wifi. I would recommend this location to anyone and hope to be able to stay there again in the future.

Manager Response: Thank you! We have changed Internet providers from frontier (who evidently is still on the frontier) to infinity which is faster and reliable. The heat issue has also been resolved.

Beautiful Home

Posted: Jan 17, 2016

Beautiful Home My family and I stayed here over the holidays. The home is very comfortable as well as beautifully decorated and does not feel like a rental at all. The house has all the comforts of home and more. Our kids stayed in the 4th bedroom which is a bunk room combined with a extra family room which was great for separation. We all enjoyed the hot tub too. We loved it and will definitely stay here again.
