Exclusively available for the 2021 season. This is your only opportunity to stay at this historic cottage!

Camp Neptune is a great place to enjoy your visit to our wonderful Saugatuck/Douglas area directly on Lake Michigan!

Sprawling historic home with gorgeous Lake Michigan views and private beach access. Across two levels of living space, you will find 7 bedrooms, each accommodating two, and 3 full bathrooms. With several seating areas and gathering places, you'll have many options for visiting with loved ones or stepping away for some time by yourself. 

The front screen porch boasts beautiful views out over Lake Michigan - you will have a front row seat for daily sunsets. With plenty of seating options, this is the perfect place to curl up with a good book, sip your morning coffee, or simply enjoy the breeze.

Basic kitchen and adjacent dining room provide what you need for a meal at home. Though it's not a gourmet setup, there are pots and pans, utensils, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, and toaster for your use. From breakfast to dinner to all the snacks in between, you'll be able to cook at home. Also available just outside is a gas BBQ grill. 

Situated on Lakeshore Drive in the desireable Douglas area, you will love this location. Your daily walk, run, or bike ride will have Lake Michigan as the backdrop. Plus, at only 1.2 miles to downtown Douglas and 2.3 miles to downtown Saugatuck, you'll have tons to do just a few minutes away. 

New beach stairs were just completed! Enjoy private direct access to Lake Michigan beach for endless days on the sand in the sunshine. Take a stroll along the coast, squish your toes in the sand, and splash in the clear water.

However, you spend your visit to Saugatuck Douglas, Camp Neptune will be a great place for your homebase. 

Please note:
  • This home is not for everyone. It is a historic Lake Michigan cottage in rustic condition. One might say it is a step above camping.
  • There is running water, electricity, shelter, and wireless internet. Everything you need to enjoy our area.
  • There is no central AC. Some of the bedrooms may have a window AC unit. However, they are tempermental and cannot be repaired if they break. Open the window, the breeze off the lake is wonderful.
  • Enjoy the wildlife! You may see deer roaming the backyard, chipmunks, squirells, raccoons, and various birds. Make sure to keep the doors shut so the critters do not join you for your stay. Ants and spiders may welcome themselves in anyway. Keep your food sealed shut or be willing to share.
  • At this house, things are old and there are quirks, but the space, location, and view are fantastic.
