Description

LAGOM - Sunset Retreat

Hip mid-century modern meets rustic log cabin with stunning lakefront views, private hot tub, home theater, Lake Michigan beach access, and more!

There is a unique Swedish and Norwegian term - lagom (LAH-gum) - that is the inspiration behind the name of this special property along the bucolic shores of Lake Michigan. It describes an ethereal way of life that is “just the right amount,” “in balance,” and “perfect-simple.” It also explains the harmonious state of mind you and your guests will experience at this one-of-a-kind, meticulously renovated log cabin with a cool, modern Scandinavian vibe—no matter the season.

The first thing you’ll notice is the trendy interior which has been lovingly and thoughtfully remodeled from top to bottom (2020) with the enjoyment of you and your guests as a top priority: fresh new carpet, paint, and custom wallpaper; a finished lower level with a spacious home theater; and an upgraded chef’s kitchen with quartz countertops, a cozy coffee corner, and a full-size dishwasher to make cleanup a breeze.

The kitchen-adjacent dining area features a large table that comfortably seats eight and encourages daily communal meals. Flow easily into the cozy living room where you will adore the two-story soaring ceilings, curl up with a good book next to the wood-burning fireplace, or simply sit back and relax in the hanging chair.

When it’s time to retreat for the evening, the main level has a convenient queen bedroom and full bathroom perfect for those who rather not do stairs. Otherwise, head upstairs to the lofted master bedroom. This space overlooks the living room below but still provides a sanctuary away from it all. The electric fireplace is perfect for creating ambiance and the hammock is the ideal place for an afternoon nap. The upper level also has a queen guest room with an electric fireplace and a full bathroom.

The finished lower level is an ideal hideaway. Relax and enjoy the latest movie or catch the big game in the comfortable home theatre complete with a Roku setup allowing you to sign into a variety of your favorite streaming services.

The outside space at Lagom is a true gem. Take in Mother Nature’s expansive, breathtaking sunsets and sunrises while you soak away your worries in your own private hot tub on the covered back porch. Once you’re completely relaxed, saunter down to the blufftop fire pit to gather with your loved ones, roast s’mores, and clink glasses while watching the lightning bugs, snowflakes, or fall leaves float by as if in slow motion.

If Lake Michigan is calling your name, the association access point is directly next door. Descend the steps to the sugar sand beach where you can stroll for miles along the coast, take a dip in the refreshing water, or squish your toes in the sand while you sit and meditate. 

After you’ve worked up a healthy appetite, head back home to prepare a hearty lunch to enjoy on the spacious bluffside deck overlooking Lake Michigan in all her greatness.

Now that you’ve explored the immediate grounds of Lagom, venture out with a quick drive to Saugatuck, Douglas, South Haven, or Holland. These charming cities are all located within a 30-minute drive and provide the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal at one of the popular restaurants, imbibe at a local winery or brewery, shop amongst the eclectic boutiques and art galleries, hunt for treasurers at the many antique shops and roadside farm stands, attend a seasonal event like the Holland Tulip Festival or Douglas Halloween Parade, or take in an exciting live performance at one of the many local theaters. Or explore the surrounding water and land by kayaking, paddle boarding, or taking a hike at a local state park, wildlife sanctuary, or sand dune.

This is you enjoying the lake life of Pure Michigan to its absolute fullest and we think you’ll agree after staying at Lagom, that it’s not only a place but a feeling - one that will stay with you long after you leave.

Please Note:
  • The lower level only has 1 exit. Sleeping here is at your own risk.
  • Sleeping for 2 is accommodated by a queen air mattress that can be set up in the room of your choosing. 
  • The home theater has a Roku set up to stream all your favorite shows. You will need to use your own login for each of the apps (Netflix, Prime, Disney+, etc.). Cable TV separate from the streaming apps is not provided.
  • The wood-burning fireplace in the main-level living room is available in the winter months only. 
  • The wood stove in the lower level is for decorative purposes only and is not available for use.
  • Bundles of wood are available for purchase at many area gas stations, grocery stores, and roadside stands.
  • This home receives water via a well. The water is filtered and softened, but will still be very different tasting and smelling than city water. If you have never experienced well water, we recommend bringing bottled water to drink. We caution you about washing white laundry here as the well water can sometimes leave an orange tinge.
  • This home is on a septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper.
  • The bluff overlooking Lake Michigan is quite steep in this area. Please take care when accessing the bluffside deck.
  • This home is tucked in the woods along the lake. It is common to see animals, mice, bats, and other vermin. The property is serviced 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. Make sure to keep the doors closed at all times or the wildlife may let themselves in.

This property is comfortable, beautiful, and peaceful. We had everything we needed. The neighborhood stairway down to the beach is very conveniently located just outside the property line, through a convenient gate in the privacy fence. The lakeside deck was perfect for leisurely suppers and sunset watching. We also enjoyed using the lakeside hammock, the hot tub with views of the lake, and the gas grill. We were sorry to have to leave when it was time to check out.

This gorgeous cabin in the woods is even better than pictured. We loved all the swinging chairs and hammocks! The property was exceptionally clean and well organized. The house sits on a very quiet street with great views of lake MI. Close to alot of different areas with plenty to do. We will definitely be staying at this property next year. Mill Pond was incredibly friendly and easy to communicate with.

Lagom was exactly as described in the listing. The location was clean and big enough to accommodate 8 adults easily. There is a beautiful view of the lake and enough accommodations to entertain individuals indoors and outdoors. Would highly recommend staying here. Additional plus was the constant and open line of communication with the hosts.

Wow, what a gem LAGOM is!! Top to bottom, this property has anything you could ever want -- from the perfectly designed rooms to the take-your-breath-away views of gorgeous Lake Michigan. We traveled here with our toddler, and plan to return again this summer with another family -- there are so many great spaces for people to sleep! The two lofted bedrooms and bath were perfect for us to be near our daughter, but still have our own space. The bedrooms and linens were all new and so lovely. The kitchen and living areas are absolutely gorgeous and stocked with anything you could need for cooking, grilling, coffee, etc. The basement is a dream for families, too -- a big cozy sectional, blankets, games and streaming services ready to go. Outside, there is a fenced-in yard with the most stunning sunset views you could imagine. We loved the private decks for eating and lounging, as well as the outdoor firepit, hot tub and stairs down to the water. Absolute perfection!! We will be back.
