This adorable suite is the ideal place to spend a few days away from reality.

The open living, kitchen, and dining areas are perfect for relaxing with a movie or enjoying a meal at home. Head out onto the front deck where you can take in partial views of the endless parade of boats on the river, people watch, and sip your morning coffee. The below patio has additional outdoor furniture, a gas BBQ grill, and a fire pit all shared with the other two suites in the building.

Get a good night's rest in the queen bedroom. The attached full bathroom has a shower/tub combo and workable space for your morning routine.

You will want to head to town to take part in all downtown has to offer. Only 1.5 blocks away are the closest shops and restaurants. The other end of town is only a 1/2 mile so everything is very close and easily accessible. We have an assortment of fine and casual dining establishments, ice cream shops, boutiques, art galleries, and even a Broadway-quality theater. 

If you're looking for a day in the sand, Lake Michigan is accessible by Douglas Beach, Oval Beach, or Saugatuck Dunes State Park within a 5-10 minute drive, or take a ride on our local Interurban for only $1.

This is a great place to call home for your getaway to the beautiful Saugatuck/Douglas area!

Please Note:
  • This is an upstairs apartment and a flight of stairs is required for access.
  • The only access to the bathroom is through the bedroom.
  • There is no central AC. There is a window AC unit in the living room during summer months and a box fan in the bedroom. If you keep the blinds closed and the bedroom door open, the whole apartment will be cool.
  • The building heat is kept at 68 degrees in the winter months. If you need additional heat, or heat during the summer, there is a baseboard electric heater in the bedroom.
  • This apartment is small. The refrigerator and range are apartment-sized. This is a wonderful location to enjoy all town has to offer.

My family and I had a great stay here. The key with this place is knowing exactly what youre getting, which is a cozy one-bedroom one-bathroom apartment with just what youd need to have a comfortable stay. Since were not a fan of sofa beds, we brought our queen size air mattress for the other couple in our group. Other than that, the only caveat I would give future renters isif youre staying during the warm monthsthere is only one window unit AC. While it keeps the whole place comfortable, the bedroom it is in can get cold at times. Overall though, solid place to staylocated at the north end of downtown, so a lot of stuff is walkable. Perfect place for two.cozy if you have 3-4.

Great location, near everything, no car necessary. Served our purposes, some may think small interior but more room than you think.

The location was amazing! Right next to the river and walking distance to the bars, restaurants, and shops. Couldnt have asked for a better location. The staff was very friendly and responsive, and the space itself was perfect for the 4 of us. Everything was very clean and we had everything we needed! The front desk even provided us with an HDMI cord so that we could stream the Blackhawks game on our TV. Would definitely stay here again!

Second time staying at this location. Great location and walking distance to everything. Enjoy not staying by all the restaurants, bars, etc. for the noise, but love being so close to walk!

Our vacation to Hilton Head, SC was canceled due to Hurrican Irma, so we decided to check out Saugatuck since we had the days off work. We drove here, with no definite place to stay, and Mill Pond Realty came to the rescue. We were settling into a beautiful cottage 30 minutes later! Thank you!
