Enjoy beautiful views of Lake Michigan from your own living room! This comfortable cottage is beyond spacious and perfect for your group to gather. Relax on the private beach, roast marshmallows around the fire, or enjoy a meal on the patio.
Come home to Lake Michigan and let your worries soar away on the breeze in this waterfront home. Stroll across quiet Lakeshore Dr and down a secluded, magical stairway to paradise as you sink your toes in the sands of your own 100 feet of private, Lake Michigan beach. Watch the spectacular sunsets from the large, west-facing windows or curl up in front of the gas fireplace with a good book. Grill out for the whole family in the spacious back yard or prepare a meal in the fully-equipped kitchen.
When you’re ready for a change of scenery, adventure is just a skip away. Just down the road you’ll find Crane’s U-Pick and Pie Pantry for fantastic cider and seasonal produce. Take a tour of Fenn Valley Winery and Vineyard or head downtown Fennville for a fabulous dinner at Salt of the Earth. Just 15 minutes away is downtown Saugatuck and Douglas which both offer unique boutiques, one-of-a-kind bookstores and cafes and restaurants.
With the best of both worlds you are sure to enjoy many sunsets in this home on your wonderful vacation!
Guests will have access to the entire home and property, except the garage and the locked owner`s closet. None of the areas are shared.
Check in is at the Mill Pond Realty office where we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our beautiful area (we have some fun giveaways for you too!). We are reachable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should you need help with anything during your stay.

OCCUPANCY The MAXIMUM number of people who can stay the night AND use the amenities during the day is specified in the property listing description (does not include children 2 years old and under). Over-occupancy is a violation of your rental agreement and immediate eviction without refund will occur.

A select few of our properties require a parking pass to be displayed on the dash while parked at the property; parking passes will be provided to you at check-in. Do not park on lawns or neighboring properties. No motor homes, trailers, or boats of any kind are allowed at our properties without prior written permission.
PEACEFUL LIVING Properties are located in residential neighborhoods and respect for the neighbors is expected.

Noise disruptions, disrespectful behavior, and/or parties will result in immediate eviction without refund and full furniture of your security deposit.

Off Season check-in is guaranteed by 5pm and you may stop in starting at 3pm to check if your property is ready. All times are Eastern Standard Time. Do not go to the property before checking in at our office, it delays the cleaning, servicing, and inspection of the property as well as your check-in time.
CHECK-OUT is no later than 11am from Memorial Day to Labor Day and if there is a turnover. If it is off season and there is not a turnover, check-out is no later than 12pm. Refer to the departure duties listed in the Departure Procedures section below. All keys and parking passes are to be returned. A fee of $50 will be charged to the credit card on file for each key and/or parking pass not returned. Please inquire about our express checkout option.
DEPARTURE PROCEDURES Guests are, at minimum, required to complete the following at check-out: return furniture and electronics to original locations and operating conditions, wash all dishes and/or start the dishwasher, remove all trash and perishable food from the home and place in sealed bags in the outside garbage bin, wash and put away any used beach/pool towels, leave carpets and floors free of excess debris, and generally leave the property as it was found. Failure to complete the above will result in the credit card on file being charged for excessive housekeeping.
HOUSEKEEPING Prior to arrival, each rental property will be cleaned and stocked with at least 1 toilet paper roll per bathroom and 1 paper towel roll per kitchen. Paper, cleaning, and personal items are not provided. Beds will be made (except for trundles, futons, sofa sleepers and cots – linens for these are in the linens cupboard) and towels are stocked in the bathrooms.

REPAIRS, BAD WEATHER, & REFUNDS Mill Pond Realty will make every effort to make this your most enjoyable vacation ever. Refunds cannot be made due to inclement weather, sickness, death, power outages, acts of nature/government agencies, construction noise, or mechanical failure or malfunction of household equipment, appliances, or nonessential items. Please report any issues immediately. We will make every effort to get repairs done as quickly as possible so as to minimize the inconvenience, but some breakdowns cannot be prevented or repaired during your stay. No refunds can be given for any item not brought to our attention prior to your departure; check-out is not the time to inform us of dissatisfaction. If you report an issue that is later found to be non-existent or caused by lack of common sense, you will be financially responsible for the unnecessary service call.
POWER OUTAGES If there is a power outage, contact Mill Pond Realty so we can call Consumers Energy on your behalf. If your home is on a well and septic system, you will be without water.
