The beautiful cottage is the perfect place for your summer getaway near Lake Michigan.

Tucked at the end of the road on a shaded, tree-sprinkled lot, you will feel secluded while still being close to everything. Large backyard perfect for an evening game of bags while barbecuing dinner.  Overlooking the backyard is the spacious screen porch porch which offers both comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxing and a table for alfresco dining without the bugs.

The mail level of Casual Quarters offers an open living and formal dining area. Living room is perfect for gathering together as your plan your day of adventures around town. There is also a sofa sleeper in this space for extra guest sleeping space. The formal dining area features a custom table with seating for 8. The adjacent built-ins are full of books and games you can enjoy during your stay. 

Adjacent fully equipped kitchen has everything you would need to whip up a meal at home. The built-in casual dining area is great for visiting with loved ones while they cook or sipping your morning coffee as you wake up.

Also on the main level is one bedroom and one full bathroom.

Head upstairs where you'll find another three bedrooms and one full bathroom. Both bathrooms have update glass walk-in showers and plenty of storage space for all your toiletries. The upstairs landing area also offers a neat sleeping area for one with a twin size bed.

Located just one block from the Douglas Beach on Lake Michigan, you will hear the sounds of the waves crashing all the way from Casual Quarters. Take the short walk over and enjoy a day at Lake Michigan. This is a public beach which offers convenient bathrooms at the street level. You can spend all day splashing in the waves or, since it's so close, run home to Casual Quarters for lunch on the screen porch.

If you're looking for shopping, dining, and all the ice cream you could eat, both downtown Douglas and downtown Saugatuck are only minutes away. If you're up for a pleasant walk, downtown Douglas is only 1 mile and there is a new bike / walking path the whole way there. The path continues on and will lead you into downtown Saugatuck which is a total of 2.2 miles from Casual Quarters. 

However you decide to spend your time, Casual Quarters is the perfect home base for your summer getaway!

Please Note:
  • Due to high water levels, there may or may not be sand at the Douglas Beach. Should the city decide the beach is unsafe, they will lock the entrance. The Oval Beach is only 2.5 miles away.
  • The carpets in this home are professionally cleaned twice annually. They are clean, but they do show stains and wear. By renting this home, you understand the carpets are not visually appealing.

My family just returned from the best week of weather ever in Michigan and had a very relaxing time. We hope very much to have the same home next year with our first grandchild along. The Casual Quarters had the best equipped kitchen with high quality cookware we have ever encountered through many years of vacation rentals around the country. It was nice to have plenty of dishware as well, so we werent needing to do dishes every meal when the glasses or coffee cups were "out". Many rentals have only the required 8 or 10 and that is it.

This property is exceptionally well equipped - kitchen ware was great for our family of 8 who likes to cook. We loved being so close to the beach.

The house was very comfortable and a short walk to the beach. Although there were only 4 adults and 2 children in our party several more could have been accommodated comfortably.

Douglas is quiet and charming; people on the lakeshore and in the neighborhood are very friendly. This location is very convenient to all towns and activities, but away from the hustle and noise.
