The view and hot tub were to die for. The sliding doors did let in quite a draft and the furniture was pretty uncomfortable.
Thank you for your review, Jessica. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our home. We have reached out to our local manager with your comments and suggestions. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests. Thank you for bringing them to our attention. We hope to host you again soon!

A lovely cabin with a stunning view. It was just what we needed to relax and unwind.
However Vacasa could do a better job with maintenance. Upon arriving we had to wait outside for close to an hour because the screen door would not open. The Vacasa field team arrived within 50 minutes and resolved the issue. Some utensils in the drawer were not clean, so we had to run a dishwasher cycle before using anything. The bathroom could do with some minor maintenance. The grill and washing machine could use cleaning.
I would recommend this cabin, and would stay again myself, but an rating 4 stars due to the maintenance issues

This cozy cottage has a killer view! Location was very private and quiet. The wraparound porch was wonderful for morning coffee listening to the waves and wine at sunset! Hot tub was great too!
On the downside, the well water was stinkier than anything we’ve ever experienced and they did not provide a jug of water upon arrival like they said so be prepared to bring your own. I even doused myself with bottled water after I showered, lol! Needs to be instructions for the wood burning stove as there are none. We were having difficulties with it so had to scrap that idea. What made it even more frustrating is that their heater broke before our visit (which I discovered by reading reviews a week before our trip) and Vacasa staff emailed me and said there’s a space heater and wood burning stove to keep us warm (it was scheduled to get down to the 40s our first night so heat would be necessary high on the Lake Michigan bluff). We were very concerned about heating the place with a space heater not knowing the age and quality/safety of it and expressed our concern and that we’d like to talk with the house manager (not even the owner, just the Mgr.). I spoke with 3 different Vacasa staff relaying this info and we NEVER WERE CONTACTED! This is really unacceptable when one has already paid for a vacation home in full.
I hate leaving bad reviews, but I don’t think I’d stay at another Vacasa-managed property because there is no communication and follow-thru. Too bad because it is a beautiful little cottage getaway!
Thank you for choosing to stay with us! Our apologies that you were having difficulties reaching our team and with the heater. We are happy to report that the furnace has been replaced and in great working order. We are currently in the process of hiring and training many new team members to ensure we can continue to deliver our world-class customer service through these incredibly busy times. We hope you'll give us a chance to impress you in the future!

This place was perfect for a little.peave of heaven where we was able to just relax and taken in God creation. So close to the lake .beautiful sunsets
Only problem we had was we call VACASA 3 times to get them to send someone to fix heat. It would not go over 65 degrees and during fall it get cool on the shoreline. We had to use the oven to heat the house
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, Teresa! We apologize that the heat was not working correctly. Since your stay we have fully replaced the furnace and that the heat in the home working great now. We appreciate you taking your time to leave us a review and we hope that we are able to host you again very soon!

Bluff Cove unexpectedly transported us out of these unprecedented times! A private home nestled on the waters edge - sounds of crashing waves, the sensational sunsets and starry nights! One with nature - which we loved!
This beautiful home provided stunning 180% lake views, hot tub, fire pit, comfy chairs on porch to take in the sights and easy access to beach! The only recommendation we would make is , if you like to cook and plan on it, you may want to bring heavier pans and sharp knives. We look forward to returning!!

Access to beloved Lake MI, hot tub, and kitchen space met all our needs. The property was convenient to nearby wineries and shopping in Saugatuck, we would recommend to friends.

Secluded cottage right on Lake Michigan - easy access to beach below, beautiful sunsets, listen to the waves roll in, and all you need for a great beach get away.

Gorgeous views from this cute cottage!!

The views were amazing! One of our days the weather was really cold and windy, so we sat inside and were still able to enjoy all of the views from the living area. There is a staircase that walks down to a walking beach. The cottage is at the end of the road so neighbors only on one side. Nice and private. No cell service means relying on wifi, which worked about 80% of the time. Also, there were only a few Direct TV channels that actually worked. They did have a DVD player though. Just minor inconveniences that were made up by the lake views.

We loved this cottage that was tucked the way at the end of a street, surrounded by towering trees and Lake Michigan. The deck offers nearly 180 degree views of the water and even when you're inside the house, you can hear the waves. Everything was comfortable and the kitchen had all the dishes and cookware for making meals. You're just 15 minutes from Saugatuck if you feel the need for civilization, we did not.
Wouldn't change a thing.
This cottage is perfectly located with a gorgeous view of Lake MI. What a treat!
Great location on Lake Michigan, conveniently located to Saugatuck/Douglas. Everything was well laid out and super clean - the hosts were very responsive. The cottage is at the end of the street which is nice since you have neighbors on only one side. We had not been back to your neck of the woods in over 20 years - we really enjoyed it.
Everything was great! We had a wonderful visit. Thank you for helping us load and unload our car. Kimberlee did an excellent job of cleaning the cottage.
An absolutely wonderful location for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of Western Michigan with its great lake. Comfortable and peaceful.
