Big Red Cottage: Open concept living space with vintage cottage finishes, soaring ceiling, two separate bedrooms, and separate living space on the lower level. A large dual-shower bathroom on the upper level and a separate private bathroom on the lower level provides plenty of capacity. An expansive screened porch wraps the upper-level front of the cottage, situated directly on the dune bluff; the harbor views are fantastic. A separate private patio is accessible from the lower-level. Includes washer/dryer.


A unique property requires a spectacular location and activities. Treetops is no exception. This spot is home to a rare combination of the Saugatuck harbor, Saugatuck Chain Ferry, private dock, downtown restaurants/shops, Mount Baldhead, hiking, and beaches. As the primary means to access Lake Michigan, the harbor is full of boats, music, and other fun sights viewable from the cottage porches, firepit, or nearby private dock. Positioned directly across from downtown Saugatuck, the complex is perched on a 50 foot dune that overlooks the entire downtown area.

A short walk leads to Saugatuck’s famous public Chain Ferry that shuttles between downtown Saugatuck and the cottages, no driving or parking needed. Harbor views and downtown access are fantastic, but no vacation is complete without the beach. The complex is located across the dunes from Lake Michigan and the award-winning Oval Beach, the best and largest beach in the entire area. Open daily; the beach is a short 2-minute drive (or 15 minute hike) away.


+ Roku-enabled 4K TVs in living area and each bedroom. Roku devices include streaming AT&T TV Now app with 65+ channels. Additional streaming apps available on Roku (e.g., Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.) available for use with guest accounts/credentials. 1 Gbps high-speed internet and expansive WiFi network throughout the cottage and outdoor areas is provided.


+ Fully furnished with linens and towels

+ Washer/dryer laundry room

+ New kitchen appliances

+ Shared access to on-property deck/grill, outdoor dining area, professionally-serviced hot tub, fire pit
