Historic riverfront two-story cottage with 3B/2B, Sleeps 6-8 (w/sofa-bed)

Saugatuck Harbor Michigan

Amazing Views Await You!

Treehouse Cottage is a historic, riverfront Cottage that sits 40 ft above the Kalamazoo River connecting Saugatuck to Lake Michigan. The cottage is a short walk (10 - 15 min) or bike ride to Saugatuck's downtown attractions, shops, and restaurants. A large screened porch overlooks the river and opens onto the living room and kitchen allowing for indoor/outdoor living. The views of the river boating traffic and wildlife from this porch is incredible and a major attraction of the cottage. The original cottage was built in the 1800s but has been kept current by ongoing remodeling updates including a cathedral ceiling in the living/dining/great room, new carpeting on the lower level, a covered deck running the full length of the lower level over-looking the yard and river. There is also high-speed broadband WiFi throughout the cottage and a large flat-screen Smart TV entertainment area in the living room.

Alongside the cottage is a hot tub that overlooks the river and lower yard. It can accommodate 4 adults and is maintained by the cottage owners. It is quite cozy on cooler nights, especially during the Spring and Fall.

There is a large lawn on the river level below the cottage. It is ideal for sunbathing, fishing, family gatherings, lawn games or enjoying the fire pit. Fishing is usually good and small boats or jet skis can be tied up to the seawall.

The new 40' private dock was added last fall. If you have your own canoe, kayak, fishing boat, or sport boat the dock can be rented for a reasonable fee for your stay. If you rent a pontoon or other boat locally during your visit daily dockage can also be arranged. Please contact the property owner in advance to arrange dockage.

Because the lake levels can vary from season-to-season that may impact your vacation plans, we recommend that you talk directly to us about any concerns regarding current water levels. No matter the level, the cottage sits very high above the river.

Weekly rentals have priority. However, shorter nightly rentals are possible in the spring and fall shoulder seasons, and on short notice. It is also possible to rent just the main level of the cottage for 2 - 3 people.

Small pets are allowed with the owner's approval and payment of a pet fee.

NOTE: Due to COVID precautions bed linens will include bed pads, pillows, pillowcases, and sheets. It will be necessary for you to bring your own blankets, bath, and beach towels. Bath mats and dish towels are provided.
