The Cottage is located on Lake Michigan halfway between Holland and Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan.

Saugatuck/Douglas is known as the center of the "Art Coast of Michigan."  It has had a reputation of open mindedness since it was founded around the same time that the cottage was built.  It has many fine restaurants and shops, a summer stock theater, a gay resort, a brewery, and a winery.  It is on the Kalamazoo Lake waterfront with a marina full of yachts, fishing boats available for deep lake fishing charter, and more.  

Holland is of Dutch heritage.  Its downtown has been beautifully preserved and vitalized with a fine collection of shops and restaurants of all types, along with a number of breweries and distilleries. Windmill Island has a real working Dutch windmill.  You can rent a Seadoo and ride it to the cottage beach.

The kids will have a great time, if you can get them off the beach.
