Gorgeous lake view right from your window or patio. Super wooded and quiet but still close to all the fun stuff. Working kitchen. We cooked there several nights. Downstairs bed and bath is great for limited mobility guests.

Everything was great. We would definitely rent this cabin again.

My family and I had a great time at Hidden Dunes 11. The cabin is very comfortable and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the area, loved the State park that was only a few miles down the road, and had fun just hanging out at the house. I would definitely recommend it and would certainly stay here again.
Edward B. Jul 2021
Goshorn Lake was great as well as the proximity to Saugatuck/Lake Michigan. The cabin setup was nice but overall fairly dirty with several maintenance issues. Rotten food was under the kitchen table and next to fridge, fans were covered with thick coverings of dust, the back porch screen was broken, the hot tub had mold, and one of the toilets had to be fixed by ourselves with a broken latch. So overall a great location but disappointed with the cabin’s condition and cleanliness for what we payed.
Manager response:
Hi, Edward! Thank you for letting us know about your visit. The screen is in the process of being replaced, the hot tub is deep cleaned, and the toilet latch is repaired. We hope you'll return someday!

My family has stayed in the Hidden Dunes cabins for several years now. We stay in a different one every year - and really like the community and Lake Goshorn. Through no false advertising we were surprised that the basement on this particular one wasn't finished - which allowed for much more limited space in this home. The cost was certainly higher than the others, so it was surprising but that was our fault for not noticing. The house was very clean, but lacked some of the personal touches and bonus items (like noodles and enough hooks to hang things on) that came with the other cabins that were not managed by a property management company.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

It was in a lovely setting and cabin was nice but some maintenance was needed.

This is our third year in this vacation home, with each year proving better than the last. The home is comfortable, clean and in an excellent location. We cannot wait to return next year!

Hot tub, grill, fire pit, felt well taken care of and sanitary. Important in these pandemic times. Area had plenty to do.
AMANDA O. Apr 2021
I had multiple issues with my stay that remain unresolved and without apology.

1. Poor communication prior to visit. I messaged several times through VRBO and never received a response. Turns out this property is managed through Vacasa and they apparently don't check for messages on VRBO despite listing rentals here.

2. Dirty. I arrived at the check-in time and the cleaning person was still there. She rushed out without finishing her work. The main floor was filthy with sand, dirt, and debris. The previous renter must have had a fire because there were many ashes all over the hearth. Sand was in the carpet and we found pills right under the coffee table with some other candies and a pack of cigarettes. I had my one-year-old with so the idea of her crawling on the dirty floor and possibly swallowing that pill was appalling to me.
3. Terrible communication. After seeing the state of the rental I called Vacasa. The customer service rep didn't even offer so much as an apology. He said he could send a cleaning crew. Not a reasonable solution since our time there was to be spent in the cabin itself, in the living room area to watch a conference. I asked that they send a vacuum and refund the cleaning fee since we are having to do the cleaning ourselves. He said he would do so. I called two hours later after not hearing anything. The next rep also didn't apologize and said she would "move up the ticket" Still no vacuum by the next morning. So I send an email and never received a response.
4. One of the comforters also had a blood stain on it.

Still, NO ONE has responded to my simple request. Extremely disappointing and the worst experience I've ever had with VRBO or AIRBNB and I've used them worldwide.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Amanda. We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness issues you experienced during your stay and for the poor communication. We can assure you this is not up to our standard and is not a common occurrence. We are also actively working on hiring more team members to better assist during guest stays. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests and are sorry this standard was not met. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future!

What a great cabin. It’s exactly as the photos show. Easy to get in - very smooth access process, and the place was warm and clean when we arrived. Very well appointed and all four bedrooms a good size. Firewood supplied and the fireplace was really great with the heavy snow outside. Hot-tub great too. Fire pit outside was also fun to light and stand around in the snow. The house is down at the end of a small development so is well located, quiet and secluded. Trees all around. About a 4 min drive to Saugatuck town center.

Only 2 minor drawbacks:
1. Some of the pots and pans were visibly dirty from previous guests. It’s annoying and not acceptable to have to wash pots before you use them for the price of this place.

2. There didn’t seem to be any recycling facilities. The local dumpster for our trash mentioned yellow recycling bags but there were none provided in the house. This seems a pretty basic oversight.

All in all though a fantastic place. I would recommend it and we would love to stay again in the fall or summer.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Nicholas. We are glad you enjoyed this cabin and we appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to ensure all cookware is properly cleaned, and we'll look into adding some recycling bags in the home. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The cabin was clean and had everything we needed for our weekend getaway. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed using the hot tub and fireplace. We were able to snowshoe around the property, and the location was very close to town. Definitely would recommend!

We liked the location and how it was quiet.

The cabin was the perfect escape we were looking for. We had a fantastic view of lake Goshorn and optimal fall weather. The cabin was adorable and we had all the kitchen supplies needed to roast marshmallows, bake, make coffee, and grill pancakes. The bathrooms were also clean and well stocked. The hot tub was an excellent addition! I highly recommend Thank you for a relaxing stay!

Great few days with the kids between the beach and the hot tub!
Cindy M. Aug 2020
Easy process and property available for check-in right on time; no surprises at property - exactly as posted; very well equipped kitchen made cooking easy ; very very clean including grill; beds super comfy.
Elizabeth B. Jul 2020
We love this hidden dunes house! The hidden dunes community is a special place to stay for a quiet and peaceful, family friendly lake vacation. This house has it all with four perfectly laid out bedrooms and a beautiful hot tub on the porch. We had a ball on the dock and at the beach and were able to immediately unwind in this quaint and well appointed home. Hoping to return next summer!
Dawn P. Mar 2020
Beautiful home, super comfy king bed, very quiet in wintertime. Hot tub is lovely but not very private as the backyards of these cabins are open to one another and the assn beach path runs right down the side of this property. Easy short trip into Saugatuck/Douglas, full of little shops and stately old homes. We had to call the mgmt company for firewood (1 bundle was supposed to be provided) and batteries for the remote; they didn't respond to email but came right out when we called. The grill took a while to figure out (valve might've been frozen) and was very dirty, but we got it cleaned up and working. There were coffee filters, S&P, and extra paper products, which was convenient. Really all we wanted was a quiet getaway with a hot tub, lake view, and fireplace, and we got it here.
Manager response:
Hello Dawn, thank you for your review. We're so glad that you were able to enjoy a quiet retreat at this home. We apologize for the issues you experienced and the delays in communicating with you via email - we are glad that the property manager was able to assist you quickly. We hope to host you again, soon!

We had such an amazing time this weekend. We will be returning, maybe even this fall it the place is open for a weekend get away. The donut boat was a BLAST and we are even thinking about purchasing one. The dune rides were a lot of fun. One of our friends had never been on them and the other was scared to go on it. BUT after wards they couldn't say enough. - The Cabin....OMG, can't say enough good things about the place. We will be coming back next year. Maybe even before. Love Cabin 11! - Thank you so much for all your help. Enjoy the new season of Fall!

House was beautiful and super clean. Would highly recommend!

This property and host exceeded our expectations. We had such an incredibly wonderful stay here. So peaceful and tranquil. The private lake and dock was perfect for fishing and relaxing. The house had everything we needed for a fun friends weekend. I highly recommended this property! My friends birthday weekend was such a success despite the broken hot tub. The handling of that situation was quick and fair and that was totally appreciated. And before our stay, everyone was so accommodating with my issue of not being able to fill out the final form due to my mother's hospitalization and my lack of a computer. I thank you for working through that with me. Caitlin and Alyssa were so prompt at getting back to me and always helpful. We look forward to coming back and staying with you guys! Everything exceeded our expectations! Thank you!

Very clean and has everything you need! Lake Goshorn is easily accessible in the back of the property and all amenities worked well. Loved having a hot tub too! Would definitely stay again.

A nice retreat, even in the winter. Cozy fireplace, convenient hot tub in the screened in porch and a quiet location.

The cottage was very nice, clean, and ideal for kids and adults. While we had a peaceful time around the fire, the kids had fun at the small beach. Very nice area and would love to come back for few more days.

Pictures on the site was just like it was in person. Dock & beach location on site seemed like it was a private dock & just off house but it wasn't far walk from house. Liked this cabin cus it was at end of road & felt like it was private. I was disappointed that previous guest ran over cable box & tv was not working. It wasn't a big issue but would of liked a heads up from management. Over all stay was great & would recommend to other people & possibly stay again. Kind of odd house didn't have tin foil,plastic wrap or zip lock bags for food we didn't eat to take home.

This is one of our favorite places to stay. Love the hot tub and the wood-burnkng fireplace.
