Truly disappointing! Our "view" from the condo was obscured by 2 cranes-----as they were starting foundation work on property across the ROAD from our "sitting" area. The ROAD was certainly a BUSY ONE------with vehicles, bicycles, joggers and walkers. The "windows WITH The VIEW" are very near the sidewalk AND road! Obviously, whatever structure "develops" at the "crane site" WILL INDEED ELIMINATE ANY "View" of Lake Kalamazoo. Maybe, due to "reconfigured" parking spaces, we found ourselves walking the entire length of this "formerly a motel" "L" shaped building to access our condo. Also, WE would NOT consider our location "just a short walk to shops and restaurants". We were inclined to drive-----but then became frustrated at the LIMITED, on the street, parking available in Saugatuck. Because we had booked an entire week's stay, we packed full size suitcases--------but the bedrooms were SO SMALL that we had to "improvise" WHERE we could locate our bags to open them daily. We also opted to "wash dishes and pans" BEFORE we even used them-------as they appeared greasy-grimy. We MADE our trip QUITE ENJOYABLE------as beautiful weather allowed us to be outdoors and about---------from morning 'til NEARLY DARK!! Saugatuck IS A GORGEOUS AREA; with SO MUCH to see/do.
Beautiful condo with a waterview is a short walk to shops and restaurants.
