Saugatuck Lodge

Saugatuck Lodge is a beautiful gathering place for you and your loved ones! Spacious home with private pool and hot tub situated in the heart of  Saugatuck. Grab some local take-out and have a picnic on the pool deck or relax in the hot tub at the end of the day.

This property was purchased in May 2016 and the new owner has lovingly transformed it from a B&B into a fabulous vacation rental home. Every year the owner continues to make updates and changes to make this property even more comfortable for your group.

Located in downtown Saugatuck, everything will be at your fingertips. With a selection of fine and casual dining establishments starting less than a block away, shops and boutiques galore, enough ice cream to enjoy a different flavor every day of the year, boat rides and tours, art galleries, sculpture parks, and so much more, you will have more than enough to keep everyone in your party entertained. Just two blocks away you can enjoy the waterfront boardwalk where you can people watch, check out the yearly display of boats, and enjoy magnificent views of the harbor. The Saugatuck Center for the Arts and Mason Street Warehouse are only 2 blocks away and offer Broadway-quality productions all summer long, plus various music and art shows throughout the year.

If Lake Michigan is calling your name, you have your choice of three prime beaches less than 10 minutes away by car. The Oval Beach is Saugatuck's "famous" beach and offers parking right at the sand. The Saugatuck Dunes State Park is a great option for hiking in addition to the beach. Douglas Beach Park is the only free option in the Saugatuck/Douglas area, but it doesn't lack amenities with both parking and restrooms.

Saugatuck Lodge was formerly the Newnham Sun Catcher Inn and the new owner has lovingly turned it into an ideal vacation rental for your group to gather. The main home has 6 bedrooms plus a den, comfortably sleeping 14+, and 5.5 bathrooms. The pool house has 2 bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 6, and 2 full bathrooms. Between the homes, you'll find an expansive fenced-in pool area with a swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor furniture, and a BBQ grill. The covered front porch is where you'll want to be if you love people-watching. Relax on the swing or cozy up on the wicker couch as the world passes you by.

You'll want to make this home your yearly tradition!

Please Note: 
  • This is a historic Saugatuck cottage. The beautiful floors are original (some of the wallpaper too), some doorways are a bit narrow, and it's full of charm and character throughout. 
  • The swimming pool and hot tub are to be used at your own risk. There is no lifeguard on duty.
  • The bedrooms above the kitchen are at the end of the line for central heating and cooling. Wall unit AC and space heaters are provided to keep you comfortable. 
  • All TVs are Smart so you can stream all your favorite apps.

We had a large family gathering with Grand Mother with caregiver, married Adult Children and grand kids as well. We had plenty of room and all the bed rooms offered independent spaces. The pool deck and pool was the best to hang out in during the day and have all our meals outside. The Kitchen was well organized and we could cook and set up a buffet for our guests. Thanks Mill Pond Reality for managing a well cared for rental property.

Great place for a big family or group of friends. We spent lots of good time together, relaxing poolside or playing games in the dining room. The location is right downtown and Lake Michigan is about a 10 minute drive. We think it was the perfect place.

I stayed with a group of 14 women for a girls weekend at this house. I liked that there were so many bedrooms, everyone had a real bed to sleep in. The house itself is very charming. There were plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen was great with a huge island for hanging out around and having snacks and drinks. There were multiple tables on the patio and we ate meals outside. The pool was huge, heated and pristine. There were plenty of beach towels and a shed full of inflated pool toys. The location was extremely walkablethere was no need to move our cars the entire weekend. I would definitely book this house again. This would also be a great vacation spot for a week or so with multiple families and school age children.

We wanted to be downtown Saugatuck to avoid having to drive from / to restaurants and this place was just "right there". Unfortunately, because of winter, we did not fully use the outdoor space, although some of my friend used the hot tub, which they truly enjoy.

The location of this property was amazing. Its right downtown near amazing bars and restaurants. The fact that there are 2 separate houses is really nice. The private pool was very clean and provided some much needed fun and relaxation. Mill Pond was extremely great to work with. They were very responsive to communication both before and during our stay. Overall, I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a vacation rental in Saugutuck.
