Sunshine Cottage

Sunshine Cottage is a beautiful historic Saugatuck home with updates in all the right places.

The front screen porch will welcome you in. Relax on the comfortable sectional and watch the world pass you by. Sip your morning coffee, read the morning paper, or just kick back and let the breeze take your worries away.

The living room features convenient built ins, cozy furniture, and a flat screen TV with basic cable and more. For a rainy afternoon in or to unwind at the end of the day, you will be more than comfortable in this space. 

The eat in kitchen has been updated to perfection. Marble counter tops grace the beautiful, modern cabinets and large sliding glass doors open to the back deck. This kitchen has everything you would need for either a quick snack or a full meal at home. Clever storage compliments the cozy kitchen - hint: look in the island for more cupboards! Cook meals together in the bright kitchen with marble counter tops, then enjoy your meal outdoors on the fairy-tale patio under the lights in the evenings. This cottage has all the amenities to host a dinner with your loved ones.

Play games, or just cozy up and re-connect as a family on the plush, outdoor seating and beautiful garden space with fencing for privacy that makes this spot feel like its own little world.

Two ample bedrooms provide sleeping for 6. The main bedroom has a queen bed and a Smart TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed plus a twin bunk bed and a Smart TV. There is one full bathroom, but it is beautiful and has been updated with you in mind... Plenty of storage, an extra wide sink, and a custom tile walk in shower.

Situated in the heart of downtown Saugatuck, you will have everything at your finger tips. The river is only 2 blocks away and restaurants and bars start 3 blocks away. Downtown Saugatuck has a local farmer's market, live Broadway-quality theater, an array of casual and fine dining establishments, parks, the waterfront boardwalk and more. There is something for everyone!

Lake Michigan can be found less than 5 miles away by car (or 1 mile by ferry and foot) at our "famous" Oval Beach.

Sunshine Cottage is a happy place to call home for your stay in Saugatuck/Douglas!

A lovely little cottage off the main drag but easily walkable to everything in Saugatuck! Ditch the car in the driveway and take the chain ferry and walk to the beach, or meander the shops and restaurants downtown. We were four adults in our mid 30s and all fit comfortably in the home and around the back decks table. The screened in porch was also a great option in the mornings.

We loved the Sunshine Cottage! Our young family of 4 (3 year old, and 4 month old) stayed here for 4 days and it was perfect for our trip. There isnt a bath tub but both kids enjoyed the shower experience. The house was a perfect size for our 3 year old to run around and we could still keep an eye on him. Especially in the fenced deck and the screened in porch. The road can get a little busy but it was perfect for our 3 year old to watch the cars go by. The location was perfect for walking into downtown without being in the heart of downtown. It was less than a 5 minute walk to get to Water Street, and only a 10 minute drive to Oval Beach. We plan on staying here again for years to come! Such a wonderful, and relaxing trip.

Super clean, super convenient to shops and restaurants but also perfectly situated for those who like to go for a walk and see lots of gardens or birdwatch at the nature preserve. Quick drive to the beach or walk to the chain ferry. Well managed property exactly as described.

Really cute place in a perfectly walkable location. Super comfortable for two with a great shower. This is more of a personal preference, but the beds and furniture was very soft. Would love to stay here again and the management company was very friendly, responsive, and helpful.

The sunshine cottage was perfect for our weekend girls trip! It is about a 5-10 minute walk from nearby restaurants and downtown Saugatuck. The screened in porch was perfect for relaxing and having drinks before dinner. Only two cars fit in the driveway so if you have more than that you will need to find street parking. We had three cars and had no trouble parking the third car one street over. The check in process was very smooth and communication was wonderful throughout the entire process. The kitchen is well equipped and the cottage appears as shown in pictures.
