Tucked in the trees in Saugatuck Township, Poolside is the perfect backdrop for making memories with your loved ones.

During the summer, the private swimming pool is truly a treat and a great way to cool off from the summer sun. Around the pool is a fabulous deck with outdoor furniture. Enjoy a meal pool side in the sunshine or just relax and soak in a good book. The private hot tub is open year-round for your enjoyment. 

Inside Poolside the main level will welcome you with a multitude of places to have a chat, play a game, sip on your morning coffee, or just wind down.

The open living space has a flat screen TV with basic cable channels and the adjacent formal dining area is perfect for meals at home. From the dining area you could go one of two ways, out the French doors to the beautiful sun porch overlooking the pool or journey into the kitchen. The kitchen has all the basics you might need to whip up a delicious meal and a casual dining nook for 4. Also on the main level is a full bathroom with walk in shower.

Travel upstairs where you'll find two spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom with a shower tub combo.

The pool house is a great respite with extra space. An open room studio is complete with a daybed with futon and flat screen SmartTV. The attached bathroom is gorgeous with a custom tiled shower. 

Poolside is located just a 5 minute drive from downtown Douglas and a 7 minute drive from downtown Saugatuck. Shopping, fine and casual dining, coffee shops, parks, and more await you in the heart of town. If you'd prefer the sand between your toes, Lake Michigan is accessible via the West Side County Park, Douglas Beach, Oval Beach, or Saugatuck State Park all within a 5-10 minute drive. If you happen to be visiting during blueberry season, the blueberry farm is only a 1/2 mile away!

Please Note:
  • The third bedroom and bathroom is in the detached pool house. You do need to go outside and across the pool deck to get between the main house and the pool house. 
  • There is no central air conditioning. There are window AC units in each bedroom, the living room, and a wall unit in the pool house.
  • This home is tucked in the trees. It is common to see animals, mice, 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.
  • This home receives water from a well. Due to the high mineral content in the area, the water smells and tastes very different than city water. You may also notice a slight orange tinge to white or lite colored items that are laundered in the water. 
  • This home is on a septic system. Do not flush anything other than toilet paper. Flushing other items, such as feminine products, will cause a sewage backup into the shower. Please only flush toilet paper.

This a very nice place to be if you are looking for a Lake Michigan getaway. The location is close to town. The hosts are very responsive and are willing to be flexible with their guests should there be late check-ins or other unforeseen circumstances. There is plenty of space.

Such a cute place and we felt right at home right away. It was nice it had its own kitchen supplies so we could cook our own meals. The weather prevented us from being able to use the pool, but we felt like we had our own little secluded place with a beautiful yard. We were also close to downtown Saugatuck, which is a beautiful town to explore. The beds were also very comfortable which is very important to me.

This was a very nice place. We arrived to a pleasant and welcoming surprise (I wont ruin for future renters) it was a nice touch. The rooms had window ACs which I was concerned about but actually made the temperate of both floors very manageable especially since it was very hot outside. The pool isnt heated but was comfortable to swim in even at night and my kids couldnt get over how clear the water was. Very warm house and obviously kept up well. Only downside was the house is about 400 feet from I-94 and so you can hear the drone of the highway traffic when youre outside. However, you cant hear anything when youre inside. Even when we were outside, the combination of being in the woods, music playing on our bluetooth speaker and the splashing of our kids in pool drowned out any sound from the highway. If youre looking for a place to stay in the Saugatuck/Douglas area and want a pool and are ok to drive a few minutes to get downtown or to the beach, this is a great option.

Thank you 😊 for the amazing house to stay in! Was just what we needed so quiet feel like only people in earth. Pool was warm enough to swim. Hot tub was very nice, so was the pool house. Pool house was a great bonus with a nice bathroom and felt screen tv, air hockey machine was fun to play. Definitely a place you can make a lot of amazing 😉 memories!!! Was nice being able to utilize both areas. Fireplace was a nice touch to snuggle up and watch a movie. Definitely a top place to stay in my eyes, will definitely be back. Thank you for being so responsive when needing help.

Mill Pond Realty is very professional. Exceptional people to deal with. Very nice accommodations. Pool should be heated for usage and we would have liked more pots and pans. Convenient location near highway and towns.

A large, well equipped home that was very secure and private. It should be noted that you can hear a bit of highway noise. Still very relaxing.
