Smitten Mitten is the ideal place for a relaxing getaway with your closest friends.

Spend the evening on the spacious back deck grilling up a delicious meal with the sparkle of fairy lights just overhead and millions of stars in the distance. The outdoor dining table provides a place for not only a meal, but also a game of cards, a few beverages, and laughter while making memories. The surrounding nature, including mature trees, will make you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere.

Located just a 1/2 mile from the center of downtown Saugatuck, you'll never be short of things to do. Shops, restaurants, ice cream, parks, and people watching are all just an easy stroll away. Smitten Mitten is also located across the street from the bike path which extends south into Douglas and north all the way to Grand Haven. If you're after Lake Michigan beaches and the sand between your toes, we have that too! The Saugatuck Dunes State Park, with hiking trails and beautiful beaches, is an easy 3 minute car ride or 15 minute bike right. The Oval Beach and Douglas Beach are also easily accessible with just a 7 minute drive.

You will fall in love with the interior of Smitten Mitten. Enter through the huge screen porch, with relaxing chairs and outside dining, to a grand room complete with soaring ceilings. The comfortable living room furniture is perfect for kicking back and watching a movie. Equipped kitchen with stainless appliances also has a butcher block island with snack bar seating. The farmhouse sink with oversized window overlooking the backyard provides a sweet touch of character. The unique master bedroom is a lofted space with large queen bed. Separate den off the living room provides extra sleeping on the day bed with trundle. The full bathroom in this home is a true treasure. With stone flooring, farmhouse style lighting, and a claw foot bath, you'll love your time in here. For a real treat, sink into a tub full of bubbles and watch the trees out the adjacent picture window.

Smitten Mitten is a magical place to get away - you'll want to return again and again!

Great space for my little family of three! The upstairs loft had enough space for our travel crib and we used the front room as a staging area for our luggage. We loved the furnishings and kitchen. Both the bathroom and front room were pretty dark, but the rest of the house had plenty of natural light and fixtures! We really enjoyed our time.

The Smitten Mitten was quaint, cozy, and exactly as described. If youre looking for a great place to spend some quality time with a significant other, this is a great place to do it. This place manages to meld privacy with a fantastic location. The house is a 15 minute walk from everything in Saugatuck, but you would never know it sitting next to the fireplace. The back deck was a great place to sit and eat breakfast as the sun came up, and the kitchen provided great space for cooking throughout the weekend. My wife and I will definitely be back during the summertime. Check-in was very easy, and the Mill Pond staff was very responsive with a number you can text for questions at any point during your stay. Would definitely recommend this place. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in the Smitten Mitten. Thanks for being a great host.

The Smitten Mitten was the perfect weekend getaway. With a fast-paced and always-busy lifestyle in Chicago, its hard to measure just how valuable a quiet weekend away can be. This house was perfect; we went through 8 bundles of firewood and cooked a great dinner every night in the lovely kitchen. Upon arrival, the whole place was spotless and took great care in its purpose as a rental. Mill Pond Realty gave us tips and recommendations in town, all of which were easily walkable from the great location of the house. The dogs loved the fenced backyard and ability to stretch out by the fire, and an empty (and clean) refrigerator meant we could stock up for elaborate meals. Nice touches like a Sonos and record player (complete with a perfectly eclectic selection) finished it off nicely. We will be renting this house a few times a year moving forward. Our first experience will be tough to improve on, but between this house and the hospitality that was provided, I see no reason to look anywhe

Staying at the Smitten Mitten was a dream. The house is so charming and beautiful and had everything we needed. It was also so close to everything we wanted to do. I cant imagine that a better place to stay exists. Everyone we dealt with at Mill Pond was so friendly and helpful as well. We will be back!
