Escape to nature at Woodlands Cottage. This charming century-old cottage nestled under the trees in Douglas, MI rests on a beautiful four-acre tree-lined property filled with old majestic Pines and Maples.
While wonderfully secluded in a serene forest setting, this quaint little country cottage is only a short bike-ride away from downtown Douglas, the Dunes Resort, and Saugatuck. Woodlands Cottage has been completely renovated from top to bottom and is pristine clean. It’s tastefully decorated in modern-cottage décor that includes art work from the Saugatuck region. It boasts three bedrooms, two full baths, and a fully-equipped kitchen with granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. All bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two twin) are furnished with brand-new posturepedic mattresses and high-end luxurious 1500-count linens.
Relax with your morning coffee in the porched-in dining room while looking out into the woods, or relax on the back deck and soak up the sun, or build a fire and relax with a glass of wine under the century-old Maple on the patio. Enjoy the sound of the wind rustling through the forest while watching the regional birds visiting the bird feeders, and don’t be surprised if you catch a glimpse of a deer or two passing through the grounds.
The Fall season is a beautiful time to stay at Woodlands cottage. The foliage on the property and in the Saugatuck/Douglas area begins to change as early as late September and the color continues through to the end of October with the peak around the second and third week of October. The house is also redecorated for the Fall with decor and art from local area businesses.
