Spacious home with plenty of space over two levels with an open and welcoming ambiance. Situated on almost two acres, this home includes two large living rooms and fully equipped kitchen overlooking a beautiful wooded lot. Enjoy nature in the backyard complete with seating/dining area, hot tub and fire pit. If you like to grill outside, this home feature both gas and charcoal grills. Walk along the lakefront and hunt for beach glass via public stairs a short walk away. 

PLEASE NOTE (12/30/2020):  Lake Michigan water levels are at record highs and beach conditions may change quickly due to uncontrollable natural factors. While we strive to provide accurate photos and information about the lakefront, beaches and access; these conditions changes almost daily. Actual conditions of the beach may be different from photos or descriptions on this listing. The property owner assumes no financial responsibility resulting from loss of use of beach or accessibility to Lake Michigan. 

We strive to be as accommodating as possible to our guests. If you have questions on minimum length of stay or anything else, please call us at 708-364-9331. We will see if we can help.

Wooded retreat

Great house for a group. The main level has the master suite and the rest of the bedrooms/bathrooms are in the basement, which walks out to the hot tub and fire-pit. Short walk to look at beautiful houses on Lake Michigan. House had lots of cooking pots and pans, griddle, grills, and plates/utensils. The hot tub and firepit were a big hit each night. Oval beach, downtown Saugatuck, Saugatuck dunes, Crane Orchard were all 10 minutes away, which was perfect. Great house and Karen is super nice and helpful

Thanks Lindsey. I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and the area. We're in a great location and it sounds like you made the most of your stay. Come see us again!

Wonderful property that met all of our needs!

This property comes as advertised. It is very well equipped and very comfortable. It is about a 15 minute drive to Oval Beach (terrific beach) and the same to Saugatuck. We took long walks on the road that runs along Lake Michigan. The kitchen is very modern and all of the appliances, dishes, serving pieces that one needs. The Weber propane grill functions well. The added amenities of a hot tub and fire pit were much appreciated. Karen was very responsive whenever I texted her with a question or for information. All in all, I highly recommend this property!

Thanks so much for your stay at West Winds. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the area and Lake Michigan. Thanks Orry!

Mini Saugatuck vacation

Stayed for 3 nights with 4 of my siblings and their spouses. The place was very comfortable and there was plenty of space to hang out. We loved having use of the hot tub.

Thanks Kathleen. I'm glad your family was able to spend some time together and enjoyed the hot tub. Hope to see you again soon.

Responsive & kind host despite snags

Karen was so friendly, quick to respond and address any and all questions or concerns we had at every turn. She is a great host! Unfortunately we did encounter a handful of issues that prevent me from giving a 5 star rating but Karen was very receptive to feedback and she gave every indication she was addressing the issues we brought to her attention. The house is in a beautiful location, but it's important to know that there is no longer access to the public beach just across the street. There are private stairs at several different spots so it was like forbidden fruit for us!

Danielle, Thank you for brining those issues to my attention. I was able to get them all addressed before the next guests checked in. I'm sorry the public stairs were not accessible. With the high water and erosion this year, it has been hit or miss. Have a great fall!

A home away from home

With this being our 1st time renting, we were a bit skeptical, but we were blown away at how this felt like a home away from home. As soon as we walked in, you can see the cleanliness was amazing. Everything was stocked from towels to toilet paper. She even had coffee! Karen was very easy to communicate with and answered all of our million questions. We can't wait to re-book again and enjoy the whirlpool, firepit and awesome shower in the master bedroom!

Thanks Ralph. It was a pleasure to host you and I'm glad it was a good experience for you and that you had everything you needed. You are welcome anytime! Stay well and have a good fall.

Everything we thought it would be!

Great area and location. Close to some Great Lake Michigan beaches. Home is spacious and loaded with kitchen amenities. Just bring your favorite dishes to make and all the tools are provided. The only negative we experienced was there were no extra bed sheets. We only used one of the pullout sofa beds and could only find an extra bottom sheet. There was no top sheet. I don’t know what we would have done if we needed the extra sleeper sofa. Plenty of extra blankets and pillows though. Also, we had to pick up paper towels and dishwasher pods as only one of each was provided. But, a great time was had my my entire family. Thanks Karen!

Thanks Rich! It is a great location. I appreciate you letting me know about the low supplies and we got the house restocked and ready to go. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

House has everything you need and more.

We had a great time, 6 adults and 4 kids, plenty of space for everyone. We spent a lot of time in Saugatuck, Oval beach is beautiful and the little downtown area is so cute. We rented a pontoon boat and cruised the Kalamazoo river. Beautiful neighborhood, and we loved making campfires and enjoyed the hot tub!!
