Dune Buggy is the newest of cottages and a special retreat at the top of the dune with a wrap-around porch, studio-style layout with a wood-burning stove, half-bath, and outdoor shower. Guests can open all the windows and enjoy complete outdoor-style (screened-in) sleeping, or keep it closed for a cozy night on the dune. No A/C or central heat in this one! Dune Buggy is one of three cottages in close proximity to one another. Guests of all 3 cottages have access to a gas grill and a new and professionally-serviced hot tub.



Kitchenette: please see photos and 3D tour. The kitchen area is part of the bedroom and includes a small refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, and dishes/utensils.



Bath: Dune Buggy features a half bath inside with a toilet and sink, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold water.



WHY THIS LOCATION?



A unique property requires a spectacular location and activities. Treetops cottage complex is no exception. This spot is home to a rare combination of the Saugatuck harbor, Saugatuck Chain Ferry, 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. 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. Dune Buggy 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 accessible from the cottage via a short 2-minute drive (or 15 minute hike).



TV/INTERNET



+ Roku-enabled 4K TV in screened porch. 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 is provided.



OTHER AMENITIES



+ Fully furnished with linens and towels

+ Access to professionally serviced hot tub on the property (shared with the other 2 cottages in the complex)

    Perfectly relaxing

    Communication with host was excellent . Any issues we had were taken care of without hesitation. A great relaxing time for my wife and I. We would recommend to anyone. .a stones throw to town , the chain ferry didn’t seem to be running much( probably having trouble getting workers) so the local busses worked great 1$ each person each way)

    Hidden Gem!!

    The Dune Buggy cottage, awesome for those who love the outdoors combined with the comforts of home, was an unforgettable experience. Windows on every side of the quaint little cabin allowed us a great view of nature! Great host made everything simple and easy! We will be back no doubt!

    Cottage getaway

    Cottage was super cute and perfect for two! We loved our visit there. The shower needed to be cleaned up better with more hot water for two to shower. The floor was also sandy felling so a broom and dustpan would have helped greatly.
