Anna's Cottage is NEW to our Vacation Rental Family!

This beloved summer family cottage is available for the first time for you to enjoy!

What a true pleasure to be able to stay in this one-of-a-kind historic Saugatuck cottage. Experience the history of our area with the original lattice windows, custom woodwork, and family photos. Built in 1897, this cottage was then purchaesd by Anna Kerr in 1957 and has remained in the family ever since. You can feel the love and memories that has been here over the years.

Located directly across the street from the Kalamazoo River, you will have spectacular views of the endless parade of boats and the weekly summer concert series.

During the summer months, you can easily walk to all of Saugatuck's main attractions. The infamous Saugatuck Chain Ferry is just out your door and will take you across the river into downtown. The quaint town of Saugatuck offers a variety of delicious restaurants, wineries, unique shops, beautiful parks, Broadway quality theater, the waterfront boardwalk, and creative galleries. There is something for everyone! 

Anna's Cottage is only 0.2 mile from Mt. Baldhead where you can climb the 303 stairs to the top. It's totally worth it for the views! Also nearby is the Oval Beach - only 0.7 mile away. This is the perfect place to relax and get some sun. This beach was even voted top 3 by Conde Nast Traveler. 

As you pull up to Anna's Cottage, you will first notice the two-story cottage with a staircase that ascends to the spacious screened in front porch. Complete with two ceiling fans, rocking chairs, and alfresco dining, this is the pefect place to sit back and relax.

As you step inside, you will immediately notice the charm of this original historic cottage dating back to 1897. From the crisscross lattice windows to the original woodwork, there are special touches throughout. 

In the living room you'll find cozy twin couches and a flat screen Smart TV to catch up on the latest Nexflix show or check the weather. There is no cable, but the wireless is plenty quick and the Smart TV has all the apps. Adjacent dining area seats up to 10 so everyone can enjoy a meal together. The next room over is the the fully equipped kitchen complete with everything you would need to prepare the meal of your choice. The kitchen also has a dining area that seats 6.

Head out the sliders where you'll find the open deck with yet another dining table. This could be a great place to gather in the evening under the stars while playing a game of cards and making new memories with your loved ones. Just off the deck is a barbeque grill to make grilling dinner easy and convenient. 

Back inside you'll find a total of 4 bedrooms and 6 beds with comfortable sleeping for up to 10. Main level has a bedroom with two twins and a full bathroom with claw foot tub and shower combo. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms; the one at the top of the stairs has a king, the one at the front has two doubles, and the one in the back has one double. All of the bedrooms have a dresser and plenty of hangers, plus reading lamps. 

Down the narrow staircase to the ground level basement area, you will find even more space. This level has a full bathroom with shower and a washer and dryer. Convenient amenities for your Saugatuck getaway.

Whether you're looking for a getaway with loved ones, a romatic escape from the city, or time with friends, Anna's Cottage would be the perfect choice. We hope you enjoy this cottage as much as the owner's family has for many, many years.
