We absolutely loved the location. It was within easy walking distance of the downtown restaurants, bars and coffee shops. We also had access to a beautiful garden, deck and a backyard that overlooked the Kalamazoo River. We enjoyed being there every evening watching the boats go by. The owners live in the house next door and were very friendly and accommodating. The carriage house was perfect for a long weekend for the 2 of us. Decor is a bit dated, but the Carriage House was still very comfortable.

Beautiful property within walking distance to downtown Saugatuck! The hosts are very gracious and allow you to use and enjoy their gorgeous yard and waterfront seating. We loved sitting above the river in the evenings and watching boats go by. This place is a gem, as its close enough to walk into town but up the street from the main downtown area enough to be on the river and have plenty of space. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location. Walking distance to downtown area. Very clean! Even though it was pet friendly, we never noticed any signs of pets having been there. No odor or hair. Owners live in main house are very friendly. They gave us great tips and made every effort to make us feel comfortable. Backyard had what a great view of the river.. Would definitely stay here again.

This place was perfect for our family! A 10 minute walk for our family of 5 downtown. 10 minute drive to the beach (oval beach was beautiful). Theres a cute little ferry In downtown Saugatuck too! The owner lives right next door to the rental and he was super kind and helpful. The backyard was gorgeous but the water was pretty high so we couldnt go out on the dock but still it was beautiful! Thanks for the stay! We had a ball!
