Description

3 Night Minimum Peak Season (2 nights are okay mid-week and last minute)
2 Night Minimum Off Season (3 Night Minimum Holidays & Holiday Weekends)

The authenticity of a true beach cottage is found nestled in downtown Saugatuck, tucked among the shops, restaurants, and parks. Padding around in your bare feet on the rich, exposed wood floors, you won’t mind the sand you bring in from the beach… a beach reachable by way of historical chain-ferry less than two blocks from Lake Effect. Closer still is a pet-friendly park and playground, a green oasis amid the boutiques and galleries that Saugatuck is known for. Greener and brighter yet is the garden around the cottage, waiting to host you and even your most difficult family photos.
 
The open layout of the cottage allows you to hear the bubbling laughter of loved ones rolling throughout. The quaint coastal décor is relaxing enough to ease you to sleep dreaming of the beach where you spent the entire day. Spend the morning on the sun porch resting your feet from a night out in the town, listening to the summer sounds of Saugatuck as you recharge.
 
Though you’ll have everything you need within the cottage; a BBQ grill, WiFi, TV, etc., the unique town around you has a lot to discover. For foodies there is the farmers market and one-of-a-kind bars and restaurants; there are no chain restaurants here. Start a collection as you explore art galleries and local wineries. If you’re an early riser, visit one of the nearby golf courses or hike Mount Baldhead to Oval Beach. Whatever it is you decide to do, you won’t want to leave.

Lake Effect was in the perfect location for our family. We were able to enjoy the shops and restaurants of Saugatuck right outside our doorstep, while also being within 10 minutes of the sandy, Lake Michigan beaches. Loved our stay!

We rented Lake Effect for a bachelorette weekend. The house was perfect for our group - adorable, spacious, and well-equipped w/ everything we needed. The location was fabulous. Just steps away from everything we wanted to do. Thanks for a great stay!

We came to Lake Effect with friends. The property and location were exactly as described. Check in/out was very efficient and the staff were so kind and helpful. Saugatuck was a lovely town to visit and have a quiet getaway. I was surprised by how much there was to do, especially for a group of 20 somethings. The cottage was clean, spacious, and decorated so nicely. The location was perfect and allowed us to access downtown easily and meet the locals. Will definitely be back! Thank you!

I just LOVE Saugatuck and now I love it even more having found this house. Its got all the things you are looking for in a vacation house and you can rarely find all in one but let me tell you this place has it all! Walking distance from downtown and I mean really it will take you 2 minutes to get to downtown with all the cute boutiques and nice coffee shops. The house itself is well decorated, spacious with beautifully decorated rooms, cute & clean bathrooms and you also have access to a big backyard which surely is a plus in summertime. The amazing thing was although you are in the heart of downtown you have a lot of privacy due to the location of this house which is really rare to find and that is one of the things which makes it special. We went there with a group of friends and had a great time. We already are planning our next trip and surely will be there in the summer too. The photos look exactly the same as how the place is. Great location, speedy wifi, parking, and more!

What a wonderful week spent in Saugatuck! This cottage was home away from home! So spacious and charming. Completely rehabbed house with amazing kitchen and bathrooms. So nice to have a full sized washer and dryer too. The decor is so cozy perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The accessibility to everything from the best shopping, walks on the waterfront and delicious restaurants this house is located in the heart of downtown! I didnt want to leave!

Living in Chicago we go to Saugatuck quite often. We have tried few different rental locations which were nice but I have to say this house is just out of this world - the location is perfect its right in the heart of downtown Saugatuck, but at the same time you are in a cute alley which gives you more privacy So it makes it perfect cause you are walking distance - and I mean like 2 minutes walking - from downtown and at the same time away from the noise .The house itself has been furnished with perfect taste. Its just too cute, cozy and comfortable - the rooms are clean, with cute furniture and cute colurs - bathrooms are perfect size as again very well designed - theres a beautiful garden on the back as well. We will be back for sure!!! Highly recommended!
