This was my wife's and my first time to Saugatuck, and this was the perfect little house to rent! Decor is warm and inviting, bed very comfy, really great use of space for the kitchen. SO SO SO close to everything, and that's just winter stuff - I'm sure it's a great location for summer things too!

Thank you so much, Vacasa staff!

This cottage was perfect for a quick getaway from the city. Great size for a couple, and was very clean upon arrival. The backyard area was perfect for a relaxing and hanging out. Have never used Vacasa, but they were quick on the texts, and provided all the info I needed. Would definitely choose this house again!

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming well equipped cottage. The patio and yard are a huge plus as is the easy walk down the hill to downtown Saugatuck. It's also an easy walk but longer walk to downtown Douglas. The cottage is nicely decorated and very comfortable, perfect for our needs. The cleaning left a bit to be desired. the washer and bathroom floor were dusty. This was brought to management's attention and I received a refund for cleaning. We would definitely return!

This is a super cozy little house. Stocked with everything we needed. Comfy bed and bedding. Bonus that we could take our dog with us. We will be back!

We came here for a weekend getaway and this home was very comfortable and convenient. Its close to downtown and the water.
Turning the fireplace on and relaxing at night was very nice as well!

Probably the nicest property we have stayed in near Saugatuck. Designed so well with great colors and furniture. Loved the outside sitting area as well, but the rain had other ideas! Thanks so much.

We loved the Nest! It was a small cottage that might be tight for a larger group but worked perfectly for two couples. The decor was cute and comfy, and the place was very clean. Enjoyed playing games outside, walking into downtown, and exploring Saugatuck! Will certainly return.

Great little house in a perfect location. We were able to walk into town and were only a couple minutes drive from the beach! Patio and fire pit area were great.

Great location, modern little bungalow, clean and bright.

Cozy, clean, quiet, comfortable. The fire pit and patio were great. We enjoyed being off the road and secluded in the woods but not far from town.

We enjoyed our stay at the happy nest very much, the house is very well equipped, perfect location to walk to town and the communication with the property manager was great. We loved it, I hope we go back.

The pictures really don't do enough justice to the property. It was perfect for our girls' mini-getaway (it was just two of us). It felt like we were in the woods. Enjoyed the enclosed porch. Walking distance to main area downtown perfect. Great amount of natural light.

Had a great time. Well appointed and coffee on the screened in porch was so peaceful. Very clean and cozy. We hope to return next summer.
Kay Long . May 2018
What a wonderful few days! We arrived to a spotless, beautifully decorated home away from home. The grounds were wooded and private even though we were right down the street from town. We enjoyed watching the deer come by each day along with the chipmunks and birds. We used the fire pit outdoors for relaxing evenings. It took just a minute to get downtown and only a few minutes to get over to zocalo Beach. We highly recommend this wonderful home. It’s truly the best of both worlds!

The cottage is tucked in the woods but just a quick trip to downtown or the beach. The rooms are all very clean and nicely decorated. It included all the amenities you would want.
