Good place to stay in Saugatuck?

I am loking for a reasonably priced option for just 4 days in August.

We are a family with 2 kids and hope to spend no more than $150 a night if possible. I though that this was reasonable until I started looking........

I have browsed a lot of websites and come upon the problem of minimum 1 week rentals or no kids allowed.

Can anyone recommend a nice and conveniently located hotel or condo or cottage in this area.

The Northern Lights resort website looks good - but we all know how deceptive a web page can be - has anyone stayed there?

All comments and suggestions would be very gratefully received.

First thought is Best Western, and Americinn (think that's the name) both chains relatively new. Did you check out Saugatuck.org?

The Beachway Resort Hotel http://www.beachwayresort.com/ is very nice and family/kids friendly and may have some rooms in your price range (or maybe a bit higher). We've stayed there twice and liked it very much and would go back.

It's a good location because it's on the road to Oval beach and you can walk to the chain ferry to get into town, but be aware the chain ferry closes by sunset (not sure of the exact time).

Which four days? If it's later in August many rental homes waive the one-week minimum and have lower rates.

Did you try the VRBO website? (full disclosure: I live in Saugatuck and also have a rental house, which I advertise on vrbo). A friend has condos in Douglas for rent, also on vrbo, no one-week minimum. Other rental home listings: Lakeshore Lodging and Shoreline Realty. You won't have much luck with getting kids into a B&B in August.

Good luck, let me know if you have more questions.

Twin Oaks B&B and Twin Gables B&B are both reasonably priced and kid friendly. Most lodging places have online availability calendars so you can check dates easily...go to Saugatuckdouglas.com for a list of lodging.
