Beach Woods

Relax in this serene, secluded home just a short walk to Lake Michigan at Pier Cove Beach.

Wake up with the morning sun through the huge, bay windows and watch the wildlife right out your front steps. Enjoy the Michigan seasons from your screened-in porch or lounging on the large open deck. Watch the fireflies as you toast marshmallows around the fire pit in the evening and spend quality time with your loved ones. Ease the day away with a soak in your private hot tub.

When you’re ready to head to the water, Pier Cove Beach is just around the corner! The whole family can enjoy time sunbathing while the kids play in the flowing stream that meets the lake at this spot. Please note: water levels are extremely high and there may or may not be a beach.

From Beach Woods, the towns of  Michigan’s Art Coast are just a skip away.  A 10-minute drive gets you to Saugatuck, Douglas, or Fennville to visit the boutique shops, award-winning restaurants, and world-class art galleries. Wherever you choose to spend your time, Beach Woods has something to offer for everyone.

Please Note:
  • This home cannot be found via GPS. We will give you step-by-step directions at check-in. If someone will be meeting you, they can map to Pier Cove Park and you can direct them from there.
  • This home is on a septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper. 
  • This home receives water from a well. Due to the high mineral content, it tastes and smells different than city water. There is a reverse osmosis faucet at the sink for you to enjoy fresh, filtered water to drink.
  • There is a whole-house generator so you will still have power and water if the electricity goes out in the area.
  • Lake Michigan conditions change daily due to uncontrollable natural factors. Actual conditions at the beach may be different than what is reflected on the listing.

Beach Woods was the perfect getaway for a family of four with children. The house was very clean and comfortable. The beach was walking distance and we enjoyed the sunsets each night of our stay! We loved watching the wildlife all around us!

Super clean, great location. Set back in the woods and walking distance from a nice beach. Kids absolutely loved it. The screened in porch and hot tub were both much appreciated. Check in and check were very easy. Had so much fun staying here. Would recommend, great for families, even our dog had a great time.

We especially enjoyed this lovely house in a beautiful wooded setting. We were greeted each morning and early evening with several deer plus black squirrels and a variety of birds. We liked our walks to Pier Cove to watch the waves coming in on the beach and sunsets as well as walking thru the neighborhood streets and to Westside Park nearby. Returning each day to this house with many comforts and very well equipped electronics and cooking needs was a wonderful welcome! We hope to return yearly to this attractive home. Thank you!

The neighborhood was perfectly charming. It was refreshing to see the locals walking on the road waving. The privacy & ambiance created a perfect environment for our family vacation. We were equipped to the 9s to create a home away from home with some added luxuries. What a dream come true.

My group had a great time staying in the Beach Woods house! It was very clean and comes with all the basic amenities you would need. The staff is very helpful, providing you with things to do in the area as well as specific directions when keys are picked up/checkout procedures. (Something to note, this house is not on a paved road) It was a great space to spend time with friends for a weekend.

Loved our stay at Beach Woods! Saugatuck is a the cutest town with so much to do and see. The Beach Woods cabin was in a great location - a few minutes (walk) from the beach where you will catch the most beautiful sunset, and a short drive to the main city where there is tons to do and see (and plenty of free parking). We travelled a short way to Holland to enjoy the Tulip Festival activities. Holland offers plenty of shopping and great restaurants. The cabin was very clean and spacious. The property was beautiful. This was a worthwhile stay and we hope to come back again!

We didnt have a chance to fill out your How are we doing questionnaire before we left. We just wanted to say we loved the property; absolutely gorgeous setting and the home was well maintained, clean and stocked with towels and kitchen supplies. It was a truly delightful stay! Check in was easy and smooth. The welcome ice cream cone was a bonus treat, too! We will definitely keep your agency in mind if we return to the west side again!

Perfect Michigan getaway in the woods. Just a few minute walk to beach access and all the amenities were great!

The house was immaculate and the supplies were more then adequate for our 3 night stay. We found the fire pit extremely enjoyable for smores and watching the stars. Mill Pond was very attentive and we hope to stay at Beach Woods again.

If you want somewhere that is quiet and surrounded by nature, Beach Woods is your spot! We were visited daily by deer! It is just a short drive/walk to Lake Michigan at Pier Cove Park. You are very close to the towns of Fennville, Saugatuck and Douglas where you can find cute shops and restaurants! Holland is a short drive away and there is a nice downtown area. As for the Beach Woods property, it was immaculately cleaned before our arrival. Our son in law is in a wheelchair and we appreciated the wide open doorways and the very open common area. The accessible bathroom with a shower seat and grip bars in the shower was very helpful. There are only a few steps to get into the house and he could easily wheel himself over the thresholds to get out to the decks. If you want someplace to go to spend some quiet, quality time with your family, in a beautiful setting, Beach Woods is the right place for you!

Highly recommend this place. My friends and I stayed here for a birthday weekend and when we got to the place they had a sweet little surprise waiting for us. The place is pretty isolated, which was great for having a fire and sitting in the hot tub at night. We went to a couple wineries early in the day, which were a 10-15 minute drive and then came back and walked to the beach. You have to pick up the keys in Saugatuck so we ended up getting groceries there. Otherwise, theres a cute little farm market thats less than a 5 min drive.

We came for a late October weekend getaway with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren. It was a perfect place to stay, quiet, clean and relaxing! And still plenty of activities to do in Saugatuck and surrounding area. We definitely would come back to this property, or other Mill Pond properties.

Beautiful location - beautiful property! Easy to get to Fennville, Douglas & Saugatuck but also easy to get away from it all and relax. This home is lovely and perfectly situated in the woods yet close to the beach! We would definitely stay here was a home away from home!
