The Whole Shebang

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.

Primary 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, put put, darts, and pop-a-shot 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. 
  • The garage game room does not have heating or cooling.
  • This home is situated in the woods. It is common to see animals, mice, and other vermin. The property is serviced twice monthly by a professional pest company, but sometimes vermin do sneak in. Please let us know right away if you see evidence of anything inside and we will send out pest control. No rate adjustments can be made for vermin in or around the house.
  • This home is on a septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper. If you flush other items, such as feminine products, it will cause a sewage backup into the showers. Please only flush toilet paper.
  • This home receives water via a well and ground water is scarce in the area. You should be responsible with your water use. If you use up all the water in the well, it will take anywhere from 25 minutes to several hours to regenerate before you have water again. If the home loses power, you will be without water until the power is restored. By booking this home, you are aware of this and agree there are no discounts or adjustments if this happens.
  • The hot tub is serviced twice weekly by a private hot tub company that is not affiliated with Mill Pond Realty. They will never access the house, but you may see them on the property and around the hot tub during your visit.

The Airbnb was just as described! It was very spacious. We used the stocked kitchen, game room, hot tub, grill, and the kiddos spread out in the living room comfortably as well. Its surrounded by woods so bring spray and allergy meds if you need them. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and relaxed all weekend! The beds and pillows are comfortable too! Not too soft, medium firm mattress. Plenty of pillows + towels too.

Everything with our stay was fantastic - from check in to check out. It was the perfect location, especially with the location of our winery tour through Coastal Tours. The only thing Id recommend is bringing extra blankets. Each bed had a quilt, but our group likes extra blankets so we needed more. I would definitely recommend staying here. We are thinking about booking again already!
