Our cottage is located on the only road to Oval Beach, less than a half mile walk away. This beautiful beach has consistently been rated as one of the best in the country! There is parking onsite for up to two normal-sized vehicles. During the warmer months, walk to Saugatuck's historic Chain Ferry & leave the car behind!. Mt. Baldy & the Saugatuck Museum are just a block away. Hike in the dunes, rent a boat, relax on the beach or sightsee & shop in the quaint downtown that time forgot! Oh, and the dunes of Oval Beach are a great place to sled in the winter.

The cottage on Perryman was a relaxing retreat for our family of four. We loved being able to walk to Oval Beach or take our bikes onto the ferry into town. The cottage exterior is unassuming, but its comfortable, tasteful interior and side deck more than compensate. Sue has thought of everything to make the stay easy: washer/dryer/detergent, fully stocked kitchen and gas grill on the deck lined with tiki torches and tea lights. If you want to leave the car in park and have a mellow time with your family, this cottage is ideal.

Excellent communication with the property owner prior to our visit made checking in a breeze. The home was beautifully decorated, in a prime location, with everything we could ask for. The location so convenient, allowing us to enjoy Oval Beach, Mt. Baldhead, the chain ferry, and downtown. This was a great experience we'd love to repeat.

We had an amazing extended weekend in this lovely cottage. We celebrated a special anniversary and thanks to Sue & Lori were given great recommendations for dining. Location Location Location... Amazing..steps from the chain ferry and minutes from Oval Beach and downtown Douglas & Saugatuck. We were lucky enough to enjoy the Holiday lights that were beautiful and even a carriage ride on the main streets of Saugatuck. This cottage is as good if not better than any 5 star hotel I have stayed in. Completely remodeled and fully loaded with a standard kitchen and even laundry. The beds were heavenly...stepping out of bed in the morning to heated floors was a nice treat. I really cant say enough about this place other than I hope to enjoy it for many years to come. Thanks Sue and Lori for making our anniversary extra special this year.

Super cute modern 2 bed, 2 bath condo. Great location, lake views, nice deck for looking out. Very serene and peaceful. Owner was great to work with, very responsive and the perfect place for my husband and I and our little girl. Would definitely go back. Loved the heated floor as well. Very clean and easy to check in and out.
Just a note to thank you for taking the time to leave a review & for staying with us during your trip. We're glad you enjoyed the cottage & your time in Saugatuck! We'd love to have your family back.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Perryman Cottage this July. The home is really cozy and the renovations are very well done-it feels like a new home inside! The location was amazing -we walked to the chain ferry every day (only takes a minute) and we hiked twice to oval beach (takes about 15 min).
Our favorite part of the trip was sitting on the deck (where you are surrounded by beautiful trees) and it is even fenced in so that our dog was safe from the street traffic!
I would recommend this spot to anyone lookIng for a relaxing place to unwind yet be really close to downtown Saugatuck!

Great cottage in a perfect location!
Newly remodeled, super clean 2 bedroom cottage. Full kitchen, great living room and dining room. Awesome outdoor deck with the grill of all grills!
The location of this place is perfect! It is far enough away from the town area that you aren't in the middle of traffic and you can feel like you're away from it all. But it is located across the street from the chain ferry so you can walk to the pier and be downtown in just minutes. Also in walking distance to Oval Beach.

This cottage is completely renovated. The tile throughout gives it a Floridian resort feel. This place will make a great Fall and Winter getaway with the heated floors. We loved the location of this cottage to get to Saugatuck shopping. A short walk to the Chain Ferry and we were downtown in no time. A brisk walk West and we were at Oval Beach. No hassles of parking the entire weekend!!
