Dennis and Shirley are the best hosts! The location is perfectly peaceful with the backyard view of the Kalamazoo river. And just minutes away from Douglas and Saugatuck. The breakfast Dennis provides is awesome. We had blueberry pancakes that were amazing. Shirley (The matriarch) tells wonderful stories of her life. We wish we could have stayed longer.

We loved our stay on the river! Dennis's home is new, luxurious and beautiful with huge windows, porches, lawn chairs on the Kalamazoo River. We enjoyed the lovely breakfasts and coffee and morning socializing with the other 2 guests. Dennis's mother, Shirley, age 96, who also lives there is very outgoing and friendly as well! We were not around to take advantage of the "happy hour," but did take a lovely Kayak ride one morning. The view from the luxurious suite of the sunrise and the river and marsh is unbeatable and very relaxing! Dennis was a great host and made us feel very comfortable.

Scenic and Serene, the perfect water-front retreat for a bit of rest and relaxation. A short drive from both downtown Douglas and Saugatuck. Breakfast was plentiful with many fresh options. The bed and bath of the master suite are spectacular. Outdoor space to rest or use the onsite kayaks for exercise. A spot in Michigan that I would have no trouble returning to in the future. Shirley and Dennis are wonderful hosts.

Dennis and Shirley are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed our time at their home. Shirley is full of great stories and Dennis' culinary skills make this a special treat. We felt welcomed and comfortable immediately. The master bathroom is luxurious! Comfy bed with a beautiful view of the sunrise. Kayaking on the river was splendid. Very very convenient to downtown Douglas and not far at all from downtown Saugatuk. Dennis and Shirley made us feel at home. It was a special weekend!!

My fiancé and I stayed for two nights in the master suite and it was definitely the best Airbnb experience we have ever had. Dennis and Shirley were so warm and welcoming, and made us feel like family the moment we arrived. The master suite is very spacious, we loved the baby grand piano and jetted tub. The library connected to the master suite was also a peaceful place to work and read. The homemade breakfasts cooked by Dennis were delectable. The house has a stunning view of the river and we enjoyed simply spending time relaxing and enjoying the beautiful backyard and view. The kayaks made for a fun day trip to Saugatuck. We will definitely be back!

Cher and Markus, How nice it is to host a loving, sharing and fun couple - Opening my door to them has been a gift. They have joined my "Taste on the Lakeshore" International Inspiring Couple. If you get to host them it is a Prize.
