Eight of us enjoyed a stay in this house for three nights. It had everything we needed, including a lovely yard.

This place is in a lovely neighborhood directly across from Lake Michigan. We were four people in mid-October, and walking Lake Shore Drive was perfect. The kitchen was fine for weekend use, the bedrooms were very cozy, with good beds and lots of closet and shelf space. Check in and out was easy.

We were in the area for a memorial service the home was perfect for my family to stay together, everything we needed was available to us.

Great location (you can almost see Lake Michigan) and a beautiful outdoor space for relaxing. Bedrooms a bit cramped but well stocked kitchen and very confortable home for a weekend getaway.

The greatest thing about A Shore Thing cottage is its location. You are walking distance to a great sunset view at Douglas, and a five minute drive to Oval beach. Downtown Saugatuck is just across the bay,and you have South Haven below you/Holland above.

There were a few ants ( like 2 ants) in the bathroom and the plastic chairs outside were cracked. There was no lighter fit the fire pit but otherwise the place was really comfortable and worked for our budget and I would recommend it.
Diane W.Jul 2021
This house was comfy, clean and convenient to local attractions. No hairdryer to be found but otherwise well stocked with towels, dishes, etc--even games!
Rebecca W.Jul 2021
Home has everything you need to have an amazing get away. Location can’t be beat, overlooking Lake Michigan. Back yard with the deck and fire pit is perfect way to end the day.
Megan L.Jul 2021
Older dated home. We had major ant issue in the kitchen. 5-10 min walk to the Douglas Beach entrance.

Great getaway for folks wanting a relaxing and cozy spot for the weekend.
Mary J.Jul 2020
We absolutely loved the gorgeous tree lined street and especially the back porch and fire pit. House was quite spacious with four bedrooms. Only issue we had was that we were given two different check out times and the cleaning crew came before 10am on the morning of check out.
Barbara E.Jul 2020
The location was great for bike rides along the lake front. It is very near Douglas and Saugatuck.
Eli M.Jul 2020
The home is virtually across the street from high above Lake Michigan. Great area.
Everything was clean and all the basics were provided.
The only minor issue was not receiving address or directions until less than a day before we arrived.
Eli, thank you for your review. To clarify, your check-in email, which includes the address and the check-in instructions, are emailed to you 48 hours prior to arrival. This is a standard procedure. We apologize for any confusion. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
Genevieve M.Jul 2020
Great house. We loved the back deck, grill, fire pit and garden, including the visiting deer, chipmunks and squirrels. The house was well equipped, and was very comfortable for two families (two adult couples and three young kids).
Mary T.Jun 2020
Very nice location to stay, and convient to amenities. It was nice to ride your bikes along the shore view, but no access to Douglas Beach because of Lake Michigan's high water.
Good location. Fun way to spend the 4th with lots of local celebrations. We especially enjoyed Oval Beach, the fire pit, and the the outdoor shower to get the sand off.
