Riverfront home on bluff with boat dock and firepit - two dogs welcome!

The aptly named Crow's Nest is a tranquil retreat perched on a bluff overlooking the Kalamazoo River. With the Ox-Bow School of Art's Tallmadge Woods Nature Preserve directly across the river, your view from this home is coursing waters and pure natural landscape. It's a sight to behold at all times of year, making this home perfect for a relaxing vacation! When you arrive at the Crow's Nest, open the gate to enter a private, fenced-in outdoor entertainment space, outfitted with a shaded pergola, dining furniture, and a grill. If you plan to bring your pup to this dog-friendly home, this is a nice space to roam off-leash.

*Due to local restrictions and high water levels in Michigan, the dock may be inaccessible. With that said, the views will be beautiful every day!

What’s nearby:
Downtown Saugatuck (half a mile south) is just a bike ride or a leisurely walk away, allowing you to easily enjoy the town's shopping and dining. Beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, including Oval Beach (one mile west) and Douglas Beach (two miles southwest), are a short drive away. And the lovely Saugatuck Dunes State Park awaits four miles north.

Things to know:
Free WiFi
Full kitchen
Two dogs are welcome
*Please note that the fourth bedroom is a separate entrance from the exterior on the side of the home. It is an en suite and porch separate from the main entrance of the home.

Charming home in a perfect location overlooking the river. Tucked in the trees, watching the river activity and morning calmness is amazing. Easy walk into town. House is very clean and set with everything you need. High water level has the dock under water and the grass soggy but still usable. Will be going back!

We spent 6 days at this home for a family vacation with 6 adults and one 2 year old. We loved it and did not want to leave! The setting of the house on the river is wonderful. It’s almost hard to be in a room of the house without seeing the river. The sun room was a great spot for morning coffee or some yoga. We walked into town (10-15 mins) everyday and loved that we didn’t have to use our cars much.

Also, the windy stairs to the 2nd floor aren’t easy, but they have gates at the top and bottom of the stairs. Having a 2 year-old, I thought this was a thoughtful touch!

We would definitely return.

Very unique, charming, inviting appointments. Pictures don't do the view justice!

This house was perfect, charming cozy and spacious all at the same time. Location is wonderful just north of Downtown definitely walking distance. Loved the spiral staircase upstairs leading to the two bedrooms and full bath. Great stay would love to revisit in th summer, rent a boat use the dock and fire pit. Thanks for the hospitality.

The location is great. The cleanliness was great. The 4th bedroom however is NOT part of the main house. You have to go outside of the gated yard and down 13 shared steep stairs that are not covered (very snowy and icey when we were there) to a separate entrance to a second porch off which is a room with a bed. The room heat is 1 vent attached to the main house heat and it was very cold even when set at 70 degrees---we slept with 3 blankets and our down coat on top of us. The main house was also 52 degrees when we arrived and took 3 hours to warm to 68 degrees. The stoves are gas and not real wood stoves. The spiral staircase is cute, but beware it is not intended for non-thin persons or the elderly!
Manager response:
We appreciate your review of this beautiful property. We have asked the manager to review the listing for accuracy about the 4th bedroom. The heat and stoves have been inspected and are operating as intended. We hope we can host you again.

The view of the river and opposite bank were serene in the morning
The kitchen was as well appointed as any we have stayed at
The beds were good and the fireplace in the front porched made the cold outside a lingering thought

The home is beautiful. It's spaced out well so that even if you had a 6+ people, you'd still have privacy if you required. Less than a 10 minute drive north to the state park, and 15 minute walk into town. Would definitely stay again. The only blemish was that the river was so high we did not get a chance to enjoy the yard due to flooding, Obviously, this is nothing the owner could have addressed.

Nice, comfortable and well equipped home and kitchen. We enjoyed the beautiful view, especially from the enclosed sun room. Nice enclosed area out back door. Great location for an enjoyable walk Saugatuck shops and restaurants.
