Liverpool England and you will see this influence to help you share the UK and
Liverpool experiences while enjoying a relaxing or action packed vacation.

including dual zone A/C and a full home backup generator to ensure your stay
comfortable and hassle free

minutes from Saugatuck/Douglas.
Enjoy eating in our fully equipped kitchen and large dining
room area or try many of the fine restaurants just miles away. The home is
comfortable for all seasons, affording close and easy access to
skiing/snowmobiling in the winter, orchard/winery visits in the spring,
swimming/fishing/boating in the summer and antiquing/shopping/dining all year

bathrooms, (sleep 8-9) a 300 sq ft screened deck on 0.7 acre wooded lot with
its own dock across the street on beautiful spring-fed Hutchins Lake.
Hutchins lake ia a hidden gem, this 400 acre sporting lake is right in the
heart of Michigan’s fruit farms, forest trails, vineyards and beaches.Warmer calmer water than lake Michigan which is only a short drive away, the best of both worlds !
So happy you enjoyed it.
About the Owner
I am a married to Andy and Mum ( I can't say Mom as I am British!!) to 2 wonderful children Amelia is 14 and Adam is 12, they are the big loves of my life.
We moved from England in 2007 with Andy's job.
We are from a town called Heswall which in a peninsula on the west coast of England.
It is about 8 miles from Liverpool.
Our house overlooked the Welsh Mountains and the Irish Sea.
Here we live in Burr Ridge, a suburb 19 miles west of Chicago.
We bought the lake house as the area reminded us of 'home', quiet and beautiful.
Chicago is amazing but can sometimes feel a little busy, even out here in the berbs.
We went to Michigan and rented a few homes for the weekend, fell in love with the area and bought Liverpool Lodge.
We started renting it out as Adam plays football and we found that over the summer months we were not using the house at all. He started training in July and practice was every day. We also starting spending extended periods back in England over the summer months.

We took our children and grandchildren to the Liverpool Lodge for a week and had a fabulous time. The home is very spacious and inviting, and wants for nothing. With three different "living spaces" it allowed different groups to converse, watch TV, read, etc. The screened porch was our favorite room, and we spent every evening there. This home is located in an upscale, quiet neighborhood at the lake. Hutchens Lake is wonderful - we spent part of every day on our boat on the lake tubing, skiing, and cruising. The home has a dock on the lake with a sandy beach area where our grandkids loved to play and wade in the water. The kitchen is superb and we also used the gas grill several nights. The Fennville community provides restaurants, grocery, hardware store and drug store just five minutes away. Saugatuck and Douglas are about 10 minutes away with fabulous dining, shopping, and beaches. Before we left, we booked the house for next year.
Awesome place to stay-we can't wait to come back!!
We were completely wow'd by how immaculate, spacious, cozy, and warm Liverpool Lodge was. The owners thought of every little detail from never ending linens and towels, to an espresso maker, to throw blankets to keep everyone cozy. The screened in porch was where we all nestled and conversed which was wonderful during the cool nights. The beds were so very comfortable. The kitchen had every gadget and cooking utensil imaginable. The couch downstairs with the big screen TV was such a haven for relaxation. The master bath and shower were luxurious!
We can't wait to return to this little piece of paradise!
Loved Liverpool Lodge!
This home was the perfect spot for my extended family to spend the week together--spacious & comfy with all the conveniences of home. And the lake access provided an ideal spot for the little ones to swim and fish.
We loved the location too. We enjoyed the sand & water of Lake Michigan, the ambiance of Saugatuck, the activity at the children's museum in Fennville , and the adventure of sight seeing by Duck Boat (fun) and Dune Buggy Ride (awesome).
Beautiful, spacious, well-appointed home
We had a wonderful stay at Liverpool Lodge!! As another reviewer stated, the pictures do not do the home justice. The house, furnishings and decor are beautiful as the owners have thought of everything!! There was plenty of room for our two families to enjoy the week. I would definitely recommend this home to any looking for a large, wonderful home located in a nice, quiet neighborhood!!
Perfect place to relax- clean, modern, comfortable
Exceeded all expectations! Clean, modern, comfortable, super speciouse house we everything ready for you to just relax and enjoy! Master bedroom has the most comfortable bed in the world! I usually get up about 7 am no matter what and there I slept till noon. Quiet, cozy, with perfect ambience.
We were 4 couples staying 3 days for New Years. There was enough space for people to enjoy their vacation together and separately. Great large room and dining room to get together and nice large bedrooms if you wanted just to disappear for some "me time".
Defiantly coming back !
We spent the Thanksgiving weekend in the house with 2 families. It was perfect! Really good location to the local attractions in Fenville and nearby Saugatuck. The homes layout is fantastic for 2 families sharing. The kitchen is well stocked to make home cooking easy, but there are also nice restaurants close by also. The house is very well looked after and clean, and the owners do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible - from salt for the walkways and steps that may get icy over winter, to scooters for the kids to borrow. We would definitely return.
From the Owner
“We rented quite a few homes in the area and in this price bracket, nothing compares! The house was not bought with rental in mind so we decorated and furnished it for ourselves. When we decided to rent it we wanted to keep the same feel... comfy, modern, fresh and clean and very welcoming. We did not want to maximize occupancy by cramming every room with bunk beds, which would enable us to charge more, we wanted guests to enjoy the house in the way we do. A beautiful retreat to relax and unwind. Superb local GOLF courses with rates as low as $40 a round with a cart. Club rental also available at most courses.”

From the Owner
“We chose the house as it was brand new and modern and in a great, central location. The layout of the house is perfect for entertaining, a table that seats 8, a breakfast bar that can seat another 4. The living/entertaining area is all open plan. The lower level has another large entertaining area with a larger sectional sofa and flat screen tv. The house is perfect for more than one family sharing the space as it has 2 separate living spaces. The house also has a screened in porch with comfy seating and a swing chair to relax and enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine. There is another little deck off the kitchen with a table and chairs. the yard is large and great for children to run around in. We are across the street from the lake, approx 50 yards, we have our own dock. So if you wanted to hire a boat or wave runner it would be right there!”
