Tucked away near the breathtaking dunes of Saugatuck is your ticket to paradise. This modern-yet-traditional cabin getaway is located just 0.2 mile from the shoreline of no-wake Goshorn Lake, making it the perfect venue to take your loved ones and friends on a vacation, that you'll never forget. Not only is this a fantasy for the kids, but it is also the perfect place to take a step back from life, relax and enjoy the tranquility of Goshorn Lake.

Jump in the clean waters, soak up the sun on the pier, swim in the lake or bring your own kayak/canoe for quality time with your loved ones and timeless memories at the association beach, which is a short 3 minute walk (0.2 mile) from the cabin. Return back to your cabin paradise at the end of the day to relax on the rear screened porch, for a cookout and bonfire, or lounge in the open living room in front of an open wood fire.

Not only is this a wonderful and peaceful cabin retreat, but you are a mere 15 minute bike ride or 30 minute walk along a bike/pedestrian path to the center of downtown Saugatuck. Enjoy strolling around the idyllic and unique shopping area, waterfront parks, music and arts, superb restaurants and coffee bars. Take a cruise on a paddle steamer into Lake Michigan or hire a kayak to explore the tranquil Kalamazoo River. Beautiful Oval Beach, rated one of the best in the Midwest, is a short 10 minute drive, while Saugatuck Dunes with the Felt Mansion, Frisbee golf and short hikes to its beach, is only 10 minutes drive away. Don't miss the wonderful sunsets over Lake Michigan, nor the chance for long strolls along the beach or hours of play in the gentle waves.

The area is beautiful in all seasons, whether you enjoy summer fun and relaxation, fall fruit picking, wineries and brisk hikes through autumn-hued woodlands, crisp, deep snow, cross country skiing and long nights by the fire in the winter, or the first green of spring before the crowds arrive.

Named White Dog Cabin after a centuries-old, Native American ritual, to wish health, bounty and happiness on the tribes returning to the north, after overwintering in the Saugatuck area, we, too, wish you happiness, health and peace after staying at our Cabin.

We had a great time at White Dog Cabin. The Mill Pond Staff was very helpful and responsive and the place was great. Great screen porch for the evenings and the lake nearby was a lot nicer than we thought - it was great to swim off of the cute dock (couldnt touch the bottom!). Plenty of space for six people. Thanks for the great stay!

Lovely cabin with a short walk to a no wake lake that we really enjoyed, spent everyday floating on Goshorn Lake, so serene. We had a great time, we appreciate Mill Pond Realty getting right back to us when we had any questions.

Very clean and cozy cabin on Goshorn Lake. We loved the front porch and screened in porch for relaxing. Easy walk to Gosh Lake beach and pier. Definitely coming back!

White Dog cabin was beautiful and comfortable. The living room and the screened deck were great family spaces. The log house neighborhood is quaint and the association beach is lovely and relaxing. The location gave quick access to all of our activities in the area. Mill Pond Reality was personal and accessible.

Morning coffee on the front porch, games and wine in the living room after dinner in town. The cabin was delightful. Cozy, clean, five-minute drive to Douglas and Saugatuck. We were there for a girls (ok, middle-aged ladies, so we are demanding and picky) weekend getaway. Two full bathrooms=no waiting. Loads of towels, pillows and comfy throws. Screened-in back porch was such a lovely amenity. Check in (we arrived late evening) was easy as was check out. Mill Pond staff was an absolute delight. Thoughtful and responsive. Would return in a heartbeat.

White Dog Cabin had everything we needed for a girls weekend away. Tucked back in a private area with about 20 other cabins that all look the same. Small kitchen; basics provided - coffee filters, T.P., paper towel, trash bags, saran wrap, utensils. Bench dining table by front door seats 8 adults. The only mirrors in the cabin are in the bathrooms; a challenge w/ 8 girls getting ready in the morning. Used the screened in porch quite a bit. There isnt much of a backyard but it was fine. We were glad there was a portable firepit off to the side. Walked a short trail to Goshorn Lake. We went to Oval Beach. Dune rides, gas station, Burger King, Biggby Coffee, and an ice cream place are all within a mile. Two-minute car ride to downtown. I dont think Uber runs in Saugatuck. We looked a couple times & no cars were available. Only 2 cars max in driveway. Overflow must go to Park & Ride, 1.3 miles away. Our cars were fine there for 3 days. Mill Pond Realty had good communication throughout.

We loved staying at the White Dog Cabin. The kids loved fishing off the dock every night and playing with other kids from the street. Thank you for a great week.

Hello - just some quick feedback on this property. We were very happy staying in your cabin! Everything was clean and newish. We appreciated that there were games and books, although most of our time was spent out of the cabin visiting with our other family members (at the beach, picking fruit, eating out, etc). We liked that there was a screened in porch, although again, we werent in the cabin often, so didnt use it too much... but we will consider staying here again next year if all our family goes back to Saugatuck again :-) Thanks for a lovely stay.
