We loved the quiet wooded area yet it was so close to town. Plenty of room for our 3 generation family in the area for a wedding.
Matthew H. Sep 2022
This place was clean and had plenty of space for our family! Future vacations in this area…. we will definitely stay here!
Milena G. Jul 2022

Gene L. May 2022
We enjoyed our stay. Clean, quiet, great accommodations. Loved the screened in porch. Spent a lot of time on it. Spent a lot of time in Saugatuck and Holland MI. Would definitely stay here again.
Rebecca B. May 2022
Lovely house, beautiful property …had a great time. Would have been ideal to know the internet is spotty; I had 3 big interviews that it posed to be a bit difficult and was very stressful.
Manager response:
Rebecca, thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our home. We apologize for the problems you had with the WiFi. We have passed your feedback to our local staff to have the connection reviewed. We look forward to hosting you again!

The backyard was so perfect. I booked this house for a girl's weekend and we ended up not even leaving the place because it was so cute.

Perfect for a fall getaway with a large group of friends. Cozy and clean.

Beautiful house, everything was clean and nice..
Barbara W. Aug 2021
Loved the home…beautiful setting and close to downtown Saugatuck. Would have given it five stars, however the temperature fluctuations throughout the home made it uncomfortable at times. Also, they were not adequately stocked on glasses (no wine glasses except plastic stained ones and only 4 at that). They could stock more utensils so that you didn’t need to hand wash after each use. Instructions on how to use the tv and sound system would be helpful. Other than these things, we did love our stay.
Manager response:
Hello Barbara, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!
Kevin C. Aug 2021
We loved about everything about the house. The only reason we gave less than the full stars was because there doesn't seem to be a feedback loop directly to the owners. When we arrived, we noticed a tear in the screen on the back porch screen door, a loose faucet in the garage, and only one dish towel... none of those affected the quality of the stay, but we thought the owners should know, in a better way than public feedback.
Manager response:
Thank you, Kevin, for your helpful input. We will get these items addressed immediately.
David M. Jul 2021
Enjoyed our stay. Beautiful home, great location. Would DEFINITELY return.
Arthur J. May 2021
From being in the city my whole life, this house was the perfect balance outdoors, nature, and relaxation without any worries! Would highly recommend!
Kathleen F. Feb 2021
Beautiful home with comfortable, spacious rooms. Enjoyed our stay and would love to return in warmer weather and take full advantage of the porch and back yard.

Had booked a different home which unfortunately turned out to be unlivable - customer service had very quickly offered this instead and I’m very thankful for their quick response and problem-solving attitude. Lynn M. (Don’t know her last name!) was amazing and so understanding and made sure we were comfortable even after a few days - so very thoughtful and really made the whole stay a positive one. She truly turned what could have been the worst experience into a great family holiday week - and for that I’m so thankful. The house was clean and very comfortable. We were a group of 7 people plus two toddlers and the house was maxed out, but it was very cozy, with great outdoor areas to run and play. The living room downstairs was perfect for a play area for kids, the kitchen and dining area were great for big family dinners. Overall would definitely rent this again - probably with a smaller group. Also I can imagine this house is amazing in summer with a big beautiful patio and a grilling area outside. At the checkout was helped by Len (might be the wrong spelling) and he was also very helpful and understanding (plus he was working Christmas Day!!). So, recommend!
Laura M. Nov 2020
The house was phenomenal it was plenty big enough for 10 women to spread out and hang and plenty of bathrooms to get ready. The grounds were gorgeous and very private. We were there during the fall and the colors were beautiful. Close to downtown Saugatuck. Only one negative thing and it was minor but supply more blankets, there were not enough blankets for beds (just light bedspreads).
Amy C. Oct 2020
This house was super clean and tidy! You can’t see a single neighbor around and really makes you feel like you are alone in the woods. Company was tough to get ahold of and questions answered but over all an amazing home and I would come again!
Jann N. Sep 2020
The home is spacious inside and out. There are two large gathering spaces. The kitchen is large and contiguous with the main floor gathering space. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and great bathrooms. Even better than the indoor spaces are the outside spaces. There are rocking chairs on the front porch; a great screened in porch; a sitting area with Adirondack chairs; and an area with a picnic table, large grill and a fireplace where we roasted marshmallows for s’mores. The home is also well located on a quiet street and only 2.5 miles from downtown Saugatuck.
Yvette P. Aug 2020
This home was the perfect backdrop for relaxation and serenity with everything we could ever want and need in a vacation home. I can’t wait to come back for a longer period of time. Exceeded all expectations. It’s close to oval beach and butler street.
Frank P. Aug 2020
The reality exceeds what you see in the beautiful-enough pictures. Clean, well furnished and close to golf, town and lake. Plenty of room for our group of 9. Would definitely re-book.
Briana F. Jul 2020
This home was probably the nicest place I have ever stayed! The house was super clean and had a great set up for two families with young kids. The entire property was amazing, from the herb garden to the screened in porch to the backyard with a fire pit. It was hard to leave! We will definitely be book here again!
Babette L. Jul 2020
This was a great house. Everything was very well cleaned and we felt confident that we would not get have any pesky viruses follow us back home. The rooms were spacious and there was lots of outdoor space to eat and hangout. The hammock was a real draw. The kitchen appliances worked well though the water is a bit hard and leaves some film on glasses and dishes. Great grill. It is only a 10-15 minute drive to Oval Beach and we went to see the sunset three times and hung out on the beach one afternoon. Went up to Holland one day for the climb to Mt. Pisgah overlook. So not a super big trek to take advantage of the shore.

Our daughters were working two of the days and there wasn’t particularly good private working space. So just use this as a vacation property and don’t plan to try to work there. There is one area in the lowers level which could be used but not if you have a large group there as it is also the downstairs TV room. The WiFi went out once but once we found it we could get back online by unplugging it and plugging it back in. Somewhat slow but worked.
Lourie P. Jul 2020
Great private location. Within minutes to downtown and Oval Beach.
Martha H. Jul 2020
The home in Saugatuck was perfect for a
family get together , The home was cheerfully and beautifully decorated and well stocked with anything you would need at home, The screened in porch was our favorite hangout but a close second was the outside kitchen, and hammock , It was close to town and the beach !Just perfect in every way ! I hope to return again !
Harold P. Jul 2020
Our family enjoyed our time at Borrowed Thyme, it felt like a home away from home. Thank you for allowing us to stay and we look forward to coming back next year!
Dawn A. Jul 2020
Beautiful house and grounds. It was the perfect place for a great family getaway. Loved all the yard space to play games and the screened in porch to enjoy coffee in the morning. Very peaceful location yet just a quick drive to town.
Mary P. Jun 2020
Rented the house with 5 girls to celebrate a special birthday. We all ready enjoyed the house, which is very close to the shopping and dining area. The house had plenty of room for all of us. We really enjoyed the enclosed porch, as well as the garden. We definitely took advantage of the outdoor space by eating dinner out there once and making s’mores! The house was also clean and had all the supplies you would need. I would have given this place five stars but due to the temperature inconsistency throughout the house, I gave it a four. Overall, we had a great weekend in a lovely home!

Everything!!!! My Opinion just needs a POOL❤❤❤

My family and I enjoyed the house during the 2019 Thanksgiving Day holiday and had a wonderful time. The house is gorgeous and very spacious for the number of members that joined. The only complaint that we experienced was the tap water. We were not prepared for the amount of calcium deposit but purchased bottles of water. Additionally, the WiFi was slow when more than one user was on during the same time period. It gave the family time to spend together. We had a great experience and look forward to seeing this house in the spring or summer season.

Wonderful home. Clean and good space for 9 of us. Really enjoyed the quiet. Great landscaping. Well stocked and basic items supplied. Rented this for a family get together. Apart from a quick trip to Oval Beach we did not leave! Great spaces to gather and good amenities. Wonderful landscaping and the fountain a great extra. Hope to return.

This house was amazing and had everything we needed for our large family gathering. Wish we could’ve stayed longer and we look forward to going back in the future.

Our group of ten friends concurred this house was perfect for a group stay. It is gorgeous and well kept, with amazing outdoor space to enjoy in this nice weather.
. Jul 2019
This gorgeous house was perfect for ten friends wanting a Saugatuck getaway. We particularly enjoyed the screened porch and large fully furnished kitchen. Not only is the house perfect, but the outdoor space is a dream. It is beautiful and tranquil; everywhere you look there is another great space to sit and enjoy the beauty. Thanks so much for the hospitality and making a vacation so easy!
. Jul 2019
The house was beautiful, very clean, and comfortable. We loved the privacy and the backyard. We ate dinner by the waterfall and had smores in the fireplace. We spent our mornings on the screened in porch enjoying our coffee. It is very close to everything. We loved our stay.

Great Family Weekend. Stayed here over Fathers Day weekend and had a great time. Weather wasn’t the best, but we had fun. Kids and adults lived the beautiful backyard and hammock. Lots of space for everyone!

A beautiful home, perfect for cooking together with a large group. Ample bedrooms and bathrooms... very spacious. Just perfect!
