Ella's Enchanted Cottage

Nestled on over 2 acres, this cottage is the perfect escape.

Enjoy private frontage on the Kalamzoo River where you can toss in a kayak, canoe, or paddle board. Not one for water activities? Relax on the dock with your morning coffee, fishing pole, or a good book. However you decide to spend your time, you will love seeing the wildlife across the water and the early morning sunrise.

A picturesque screen porch with outside dining is perched overlooking the water. What an amazing place for your evening meal, a friendly game of cards, or just relaxing with your loved ones in the great outdoors. There is also a fire pit area with water views and, a bit closer to the cottage, a BBQ area.

Back at the cottage you will love the three-season porch with wood burning fireplace. During the warmer months, open the windows and turn on the ceiling fan for a great breeze. During the colder months, build a fire in the fireplace to cozy up to.

The whimsical layout of Ella’s Enchanted Cottage will truly make this feel like a special getaway.

Living room has a queen sofa sleeper for additional sleeping space. The wireless internet and Smart TV are perfect for steaming your favorite shows. There is also an indoor fireplace to curl up next to during those wonderful snowy Pure Michigan winters.
Adjacent wet bar area is as unique as they come. Pour yourself a drink, use this as your dining area, or just relax the day away. Just past the bar is the fully equipped kitchen which has everything you need to make a meal at home.

The sprawling master bedroom suite offers soaring ceilings and sliders to the garden. The king size bed is the perfect retreat at the end of the day. Please note the master bathroom amenities are inside the bedrooms, expect for the toilet which has its own private room. The second bedroom is small, but offers a twin bunk bed, bay window, and plenty of light.

Tucked in the trees on the Kalamazoo River in Saugatuck, you will be a short drive from downtown Saugatuck/Douglas, Lake Michigan, wineries/breweries, restaurants, shops, and live theatre.

Ella’s Enchanted Cottage is a wonderful getaway for those looking to enjoy the slower pace of life.

Ellas Enchanted Cottage was great, a perfect escape from the city! The place was well appointed, very accurate to the description, and views were gorgeous. Check in was a breeze, everyone at the office was very nice. We especially enjoyed the bar and the glassed in porch, the views of the river from the front room were lovely in the morning.
