This secluded retreat will make you feel Pure Michigan.

Beautiful wooded surround with walking trails, fire flies, and the stars as your evening lights. Relax in the hot tub after a long day of shopping around town or sunning on the beach. The fire pit is the perfect place to gather around, roast s'mores, and laugh about times gone past. 

Updated throughout, you will enjoy your time at this cabin in the woods. Open living room is complete with flat screen TV and sliders to the deck and backyard. Updated kitchen has a large island with plenty of seating for your group - adjacent dining is available in the living area.

Master suite is set apart from the other bedrooms and offers a spacious bedroom with queen size bed, full bathroom with double sinks and a shower, plus private access to the backyard and hot tub. The first guest bedroom offers a queen bed and an oversized window overlooking the backyard and nature. The third bedroom offers queen bed and a twin trundle. A second updated bathroom with shower tub combo rounds out the accommodations.

If you're feeling competitive, you will love the game room. The heated garage was converted into an awesome place to hang out with your friends and family. Ping pong, foosball, a portable putting green, and basketball are all available for your enjoyment. Open the doors on both ends of the garage to enjoy the summer breeze blowing through. Even if you experience an unfortunate summer rain storm, this will be a great place to hang out.

Located only minutes from nearly any activity you could image. Fenn Valley, Crane's, and Virtue Cider are all just 3 miles up the road and offer wine and cider tasting, tours, and activities. From artisan markets to chef dinners, from apple picking to a leisurely lunch, you will love visiting these establishments. If Lake Michigan beach is calling your name, Douglas Beach is only 4.5 miles away. For a day on the water, a boat launch is only 1 mile away where you can drop your boat in and explore the river. Downtown Saugatuck/Douglas is only 4 miles away where you'll find shopping, live theater, art galleries, parks, ice cream, spas, and the waterfront boardwalk. Convenient to all activities.

You will love spending your time away at this beautiful retreat.

Please note: The property owner has both a cat and a dog who visit this home. If you have pet allergies, we are happy to help you find a pet free home.

This place was more beautiful than the pictures. Secluded in the woods, it was very private. The game room, hot tub and fire pit are great! Beautiful place to relax to get away from it all but a quick drive into Saugatuck and Douglas.

This place was beautiful, wonderfully located for those who want some privacy on their vacation. The Mill Pond Realty team were super thoughtful and kind, they did a great job of making our trip one to remember. They provide plenty of materials on things to do in the area and make sure that you are able to get to the home. The home itself was stunning and well-maintained. It was even better in person than in the photos and we loved every minute of our stay. The Whole Shebang was exactly what we were looking for!

Great house for a weekend getaway with the family! Highly recommended

We had our annual family trip at the Whole Shebang and had a great time! The secluded location was perfect for nights spent by the fire and or in the hot tub. While secluded it was about 10 minutes to Oval beach and downtown Saugatuck. The garage was fantastic with lots of things to keep busy. The home has just about everything needed for a trip away. My only suggestion would be fans or ceiling fans for other rooms / common areas! Mill Pond Realty was pleasant and timely with everything, even check in was no contact. We definitely will be coming back next year!

Fantastic house with great activities. No issues with our noise or any neighbors, so many things to do and never bored. Fire pit and hot tub were a hit. Note - the rental agreement says bring your own spices etc., but the house was fully stocked with more spices and bbq rubs than you can imagine.

The perfect space for a Fall getaway! It was perfect for our group of 7 and set in the woods a bit, which was so picturesque. We were close to our favorite winery and orchard, and not far from and our favorite Saugatuck coffee shop and local boutiques. We loved the hot tub, fire pit, smart tv, and the ample space in the kitchen. Also, I never sleep too well when I travel, but slept soundly in the amazing beds in this home. I will most certainly be returning to The Whole Shebang!

Me, my wife and our moms went up to Fennville/Saugatuck MI for a mother daughter trip. "The Whole Shebang" was WONDERFUL! We wanted to stay longer. Our favorite thing by far was the hot tub. The jets feel great, the lights are awesome and the whole property in general was well taken care of. This place is quiet, slightly secluded (only 1 neighboring house that you can kind of see), beautiful and peaceful. If you are looking for a delightful getaway thats still close to town, this IS the place to be! My only word of caution is if you are bringing pets, the yard has a bunch of mushrooms that I have no idea if they were poisonous or not, we ended up not letting our dogs run around just in case. I recommend calling Mill Pond about this if you have questions!

The house was stunning and a great get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect for a family/friends get-together. 5 min drive to Cranes Pies, 10 min to downtown Saugatuck.

The Whole shebang was the perfect space for our family (6 adults + 1 baby). The drive to douglas and oval beaches were 10 minutes from the cabin, as were all three towns of Saugatauk, Douglas, and Fennville with plenty of coffee shops, shopping, bars, and restaurants. There are also tons of U-pick farms within 10-15 minutes of the cabin that had blueberries, peaches, apricots, and raspberries (its currently August so cherry season just ended, and pears/apples are up next!). The game room was not only entertaining for everyone but since it was in the garage, it kept the noise almost completely out of the house which was a miracle in itself since were about as loud as a family can get. The one thing to note is you will need to bring firewood if you plan on using the fire pit. There is wood available but they are massive logs so they either need to be split in half or can be used in conjunction with store bought logs.

The hot tub was AMAZING!!!! Fire pit and game space let us relax and feel like kids again!!!! So perfect for a sister or family week away! Clean, attentive, responsive, absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend!!! Would book again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much!!! You made an already special weekend (a reunion of sisters!) so much more special! The space was perfect and allowed us to enjoy the company that we so rarely get to have together. Memories were made here and we will forever be grateful for the opportunity to be together that this space provided us!

Our small group of friends came to celebrate turning 40. We booked the house in February or sooner and had so much time to dream about our vacation. The home exceeded our expectations. The setting was secluded and green and beautiful. Hot tub was great. The garage game room was AWESOME and epic battles were had. The house is well appointed and had chic decor. The rental agency was quick to respond to little questions. Overall we loved it more than we had hoped and plan on visiting again. Thanks!
