Amazing Views Await You!

Treehouse Cottage is a historic, riverfront cottage that sits overlooking the Kalamazoo River, connecting Saugatuck to Lake Michigan. The cottage is a short walk or bike ride to Saugatuck's downtown attractions, shops, and restaurants. A large screened porch overlooks the river and opens into the living room allowing for true indoor/outdoor living – without bugs. The view of the river boating traffic and wildlife from the screened porch is amazing and a major attraction of the cottage. The original cottage was built in the 1800s but has been kept current by ongoing updates, e.g. central A/C, a vaulted ceiling in the living/dining room, a covered deck on the lower level overlooking the yard and river. This winter major renovations are being made to the kitchen w/new appliances and cabinets. Also, most of the living/dining room and screened porch furniture is being replaced. High-speed Comcast WiFi is excellent throughout the cottage. There's premium cable and a 55” Smart TV entertainment area in the living room.

There is a large lawn and sandy beach area on the lower river level. It is ideal for sunbathing, fishing, family gatherings, lawn games, and enjoying the fire pit. Fishing is usually good, and a new 40' dock enables the renter to dock a powerboat or sailboat. Canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards can also be launched from the dock. Use of the dock is free but limited to guests staying in the cottage. Dockage must be approved by the owners prior to booking the cottage.

Weekly rentals have priority during the Summer Season. However, nightly rentals are popular in the Spring & Fall Seasons and on short notice. During the Spring and Fall, it is also possible to rent just the main level of the cottage for a romantic couples' get-a-way.

Small dogs are allowed with the property owner's approval and payment of a Pet Fee. Please read the Pet Policy before calling for a booking request. It requires the pet’s owner to agree to crate or kennel the dog when it is left alone in the cottage.

NOTE: In order to help keep you safer from COVID-19 our linen package includes bed pads, pillows, pillowcases, sheets, and blankets. Bath mats & dish towels are also supplied. However, you will need to bring your own bath and beach towels as they are not provided.
