Sunset Wonder

Sunset Wonder is a great place to enjoy your visit to our greater Saugatuck/Douglas area!

New for 2023 - stairs to your private beach on Lake Michigan! Stairs will be built in spring 2023 and will be completed in time for summer use. 

Erected in the cultural decade, this sprawling cottage boasts beautiful Lake Michigan views. Across two levels of living space you will find 3 bedrooms, wooden clad sun porch, den with lake views, living, dining, and kitchen. Best yet, 4 full bathrooms mean no waiting for your turn! With several seating areas and gather places, you’ll have many options for visiting with loved ones or stepping away for some time by yourself.

You will have a front row seat for daily sunsets! Gather around the fire pit in the front yard to watch the sun go down while roasting up marshmallows and visiting with the otherer members of your group.

Basic kitchen and adjacent dining area provide what you need for a meal at home. Though it’s not a gourmet setup, there are pots and pans, utensils, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, and toaster for your use. From breakfast to dinner and all the snacks in between, you’ll be able to cook at home.

If you prefer to dine outdoors, step out on the like new (built in 2021) deck and adjoining patio. Fire up the propane BBQ grill and relax in the warm summer breeze.

Situated on Lakeshore Drive in Saugatuck Township, your daily walk, run, or bike ride will have Lake Michigan as the backdrop. Plus, only 2.5 miles to Pier Cove Beach, 6 miles to a variety of wineries/breweries/farms, 7 miles to Saugatuck/Douglas, and 16 miles to South Haven, you’ll have tons to do just a few minutes away.

Please note:
  • This home is not for everyone. It is an 1960s Lake Michigan cottage with eclectic décor. There are minimal updates, but a wonderful location along the lakeshore.
  • There of course is running water, electricity, and wireless internet.
  • There is no central AC. Some of the rooms have a window AC unit. However, they are temperamental and cannot be repaired if they break. Open the windows and enjoy the wonderful breeze off the lake.
  • This home is on a septic system. This means there is a holding tank in the ground for used water and other items that may go with used water. Please only flush toilet paper and natural waste.
  • The water for this home comes from a well pumped from the ground. There is an in-home filtration and softener system, but the mineral content is very high in this area. The water is perfectly safe to drink but is very different than city water. You may notice an orange tinge in toilets, showers, sinks, and light-colored laundry.
  • Enjoy the wildlife! You may see deer roaming in the backyard, chipmunks, squirrels, raccoons, and various birds. Make sure to keep the door shut so the critters do not join you for your stay. Ants and spiders may welcome themselves in anyway. Keep your food sealed shut or be willing to share.

Very nice and spacious house on the lake. Clean and well furnished. Great for our big group. Views of the sunset are amazing. Walking along the lake is very nice. The location is about a 15 minute drive to downtown Douglas. Not many (or any) public transportation/ride share options.

Overall the beach house was a great place. We had three families (6 adults and 4 kids). We had plenty of room inside and outside to spread out and enjoy our time together.
