Mill Pond Realty, Saugatuck’s original Michigan vacation rentals company, provides guests with an array of privately owned cottages, homes, and condominiums that are in and around the state’s most popular tourism spot. Mill Pond expertly matches a multitude of locations with the longing of guests to either nestle beside Lake Michigan, along harbors and inlands lakes, inside towns, or in secluded wooded settings. The wide range of locations corresponds to a multitude of lodging choices. Among the lodging properties is a condominium perched on the Kalamazoo River near the Saugatuck Chain Ferry that affords guests a spectacular waterfront view from inside or deck side. A perfect haven for two, the small and cozy bungalow is equipped with a full bath, living room, and kitchen. A mid-size example of Mill Pond properties is a downtown penthouse, with upper-floor views of Butler Street and the town’s harbor from a private deck. Appointed with hardwood floors, the two-bedroom, two-bath property is loaded with amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen and a dining/living room complete with fireplace. Then there are larger properties, such as an opulent beach cottage that offers guests three tiers of decking for viewing Lake Michigan from the three-story property—a peaceful setting separated from the road by a private bridge. The property features a host of amenities, including two wood-burning fireplaces, a gas grill, and washer and dryer. Mill Pond’s attention to detail results in the ultimate vacation enjoyment for guests who need only focus on their getaway. The realty company has been recognized nationally for its vacation-rental expertise by no less than three magazines—Smart Money, Business Week and Where to Retire. Personal service begins at check-in when guests receive a warm welcome and a gift bag filled with information about area attractions and activities, along with gifts from the community. Personal service continues long after check-out when Mill Pond utilizes periodic newsletters and phone contacts to update former guests about community activities. When it comes to year-round vacation rentals, Mill Pond is in the business of building memories by providing properties that radiate a home-away-from-home feeling.
