Awesome !

Serendipity was a great experience. The room was little small but that is to be expected in a hundred year old house. The location is perfect for seeing all of downtown Saugatuck. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious! The hospitality was outstanding. David was very helpful in what to see and do. I highly recommend Serendipity. 6/12/2016 Jan Dearborn, MI

Excellent in every way from check in to check out. Owners David & June made sure our visit was perfect. Breakfasts were outstanding. The room was spotlessly clean. I am a lodging owner myself and have to give this establishment a 5 gold star rating in everyway. We stayed in the Library Suite 6-6-16 for 2 nights, 4 women.


We have stayed at Serendipity (in the Library suite) 3 times.

Serendipity is one block away from Butler Street and two blocks from Water Street. It is very convenient to the shops and restaurants of downtown Saugatuck.


Wonderful B&B -- and wonderful hosts

4.6 on May 25, 2016

David and June are about the nicest folks you can imagine: they gave us helpful advice on dining and excursions in and around Saugatuck, and they cooked up a delicious breakfast (cheddar scones, fresh fruit, and frittata). My wife and I loved their home, especially the hot tub and sauna set-up in the backyard, and my wife swears the bed was more comfortable than the swanky memory-foam mattress we have at home. That's about the highest praise I can give a B&B: to return home with the resolve to make my home as welcoming and comfortable as David and June's.


Super location

Pleasant stay

We stayed at serendipity for our anniversary. Our hosts were very pleasant and fun to chat with. Everything was clean and comfy. The tvs are small and only have vcrs. They have quite a few vhs tapes to choose from. There is a hot tub and sauna. The rooms are all pretty small but still very nice. The breakfast was delicious! Heart shaped waffles and fresh fruit and a ton of bacon! We would gladly stay here again!


Cozy and comfy

4.2 on February 16, 2016

We stayed here for our anniversary. The rooms in the house are small, but very comfortable. The beds and linens and pillows were comfy, clean and very attractive. The tvs were small but sufficient. We were in want of nothing. The hosts were very nice and helpful and fun to chat with. The food was delicious and the quantities were plentiful. The home made biscotti was amazing. We were provided with pamphlets of the businesses and attractions in the area. They definitely aim to please, and pleased we were!

We decided on an overnight stay in Saugatuck at the last minute and were able to stay in the Lightkeeper's Cottage. The accommodations were perfect for two, the breakfast was excellent and the private hot tub was awesome. David was helpful in recommending local restaurants also.


Lovely
