About Patrick Burns
This home is a wonderful vacation retreat for our Chicago family and we would like to share it with you. We use this home year round as the area is remarkable in all seasons. The hot tub on the deck is our favorite spot to relax. Our home is just a quick drive to downtown Saugatuck and Oval Beach.
Patrick Burns purchased this House in 2007

Great weekend getaway with the girls. Close to town easy to get to. The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked and there were lots of games to play too.
This is a beautiful home in a beautiful wooded setting. Check-in process was smooth, and the home was stocked well with the items needed to make our weekend getaway a huge success. There were eight of us, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all of our meals. Plenty of towels for showers. Comfortable beds.
The only drawback (a very small one) is that the written instructions (house rules) were a little confusing. Instructions received directly from the owner were a little different from the instructions posted in the house (for instance, check-out time was stated as 10:00 on one document and 11:00 on another).
Overall however, our stay was great!
long wedding weekend
Overall the house was good for our family needs for a long weekend. Upstairs, there was hair on the bathroom and bedroom floors. Granddaughter vacuumed the floors. Also, she found hairs on the sheets. Basement bedroom had a very bumpy mattress pad on the bed, otherwise good. Master bedroom suite, the shower had dirt at the wall/floor edges. shower need a grab bar for safety. No towel bars in the bathroom at all. No hanging hooks anywhere. Other than some good housekeeping, we enjoyed the house and would stay again if need to be in the area. Oh yes, the floors near the main door are extremely noisy and squeaky! Not sure just why, but they can be fixed. Also, the upstairs floors are squeaky, just not quite as severe as downstairs.
Family Reunion 2019- Saugutuck, Michigan
The house was the perfect size for our family reunion. We had family traveling from NJ, Delaware, Virginia and Michigan. The gathering space in house was large and was able to comfortably accommodate 18 people all in the same area. There was plenty of parking and plenty of yard space for the outdoor cornhole competition. As many as 11 people spent a few nights (mostly it was just 8 of us). There were enough beds to accommodate everyone comfortably. The house was conveniently located and just 10 minutes away from town, shopping, and attractions. The Sand Dune ride in Saugatuck was definitely worth doing. We plan to stay here again in the future as it was centrally located to most of our Michigan family and the house had great space for entertaining. Pat, the owner of the house, was a pleasure to work with and was quick to respond to our questions and needs before and during our stay.
Lots of updates needed
The property could be an amazing place. The photos on the VRBO do not show what the house looks like now. There is more furniture in the living room (good thing), the room with the baby crib there is only a bed in it. The crib was in the master closet. There were lots of things that needed to be fixed and addressed. Ex: upstairs shower did not drain properly, there were doors falling off the hinges in the kitchen and closets. Closet doors had holes in them, there was mold on the back patio.
I would recommend bringing your own ping pong paddles if you have them. Theirs were broken. The location is pretty remote. You would need a car to get anywhere. No walking to any shops or restaurants. If you are looking for a remote place this would be perfect. It is a great size house, and with a few touch ups would be great.
It was such a perfect house for what we were looking for relaxing and fun!
We loved the extra ice maker! The near by dunes were really fun and the saugatuck brewery had so many fun things as well in the back room. We had ping pong tournaments and jacuzzi time. It was overall exactly what we were looking for. It was very clean lots of places to sleep and a beautiful home.
