Make a Lifetime Memory aboard a vintage houseboat nestled in the waters of Lake Michigan. A charming vessel located in the heart of Saguatuck/Douglas, at Tower Marine, located in Douglas next to Saugatuck. Mi. A short, beautiful 15 minute walk to downtown Saugatuck & a 5 minute walk to Douglas & the many shops, restaurants & wonderful attractions. There are many "must see" places such as Oval Beach, Star of Saugatuck, The Dunes Ride, and Saugatuck Brewery to name just a few.

The space
Cozy, clean, quaint & convenient this rustic charmer has it all. Your private paradise offers a taste of marina life. Tranquility, Chill & Zen combine while you're sitting on the water with a view of the endless parade of boats passing right by your door. There is a forward berth with a table and seats for relaxing. There is a rear birth with a full size bed and a
small, boat sized bathroom on board and full facilities at the marina which include, full showers, bathrooms and laundry. Boat offers a refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker. The bed is comfortable and measures 74 X 53 and is separate from the rest of the boat. Parking is just feet from the boat so no long jaunts to & from the car. Marina is very quiet and safe and very pleasant boat neighbors.

Sunset casts a glaze over the marina that you can view from the "Lido Deck" You'll Love It!!

Close enough to walk to the restraunts, shops and nightlife Saugatuck/Douglas to offer.

The One-Of-A-Kind has everything you need. Only thing required is the desire to have fun.

Where you’ll be

Douglas, Michigan, United States

Tower Marina is nestled on the Kalamazoo River in the heart of Saugatuck and offers a quiet and peaceful setting with a parade of boats heading out to the "Big Lake." Simply "Watching the Boats" is a fantastic experience. You'll see sailboats, powerboats, yachts and even a couple "floating cottages." You're a 5 minute walk to the Downtown Saugatuck or a 20 minute stroll to the Red Dock which is a bar on the water and called "Key West of the Midwest" for it's Jimmy Buffet vibe and live music on Sunday afternoons.

Saugatuck is one of the coolest and quaintest towns in the mid-west and possibly the Nation. Ranked in the top 20 places to live by Coastal Living Magazine (which features The One-Of-A-Kind in its article) and the Number #1 weekend getaway by USA Today. Be it a day at the beach, a walk at sunset, a quiet dinner or late-night partying we offer it all and everything in-between.

Home to some great restaurants such as Phil's, Wick's Park Grill, Hercules, The Mermaid, The Southerner (located in the Marina) and the Historic Butler. Maybe a pizza to take with from Back Alley, Scooter's or Marro's.

Shop for the latest and most unique fashions you simply can't just get anywhere at shops like Chantal's, For the Love of Shoes, (What a name!) Glick's and Landshark's to name just a few.

For the late nights think a tiny version of New Orleans with bands at several bars, all within walking distance. A stop in The Sand Bar is so worth it (It's where the locals go and they're open late.) Coral Gables is a world all it's own and home to 5 bars itself, including the famous "Piano Bar" at the Annex. (Don't mention my name....there was an incident, just sayin')

Morning comes and after a bite-a-breakfast at The Southerner which is located in The Marina Ida Red's or The Pumpernickel (Great Bloody Mary's but you didn't hear that from me) then it's off to....a round of golf at any number of courses in the area, and the same for the wineries. How about a ride and see the area FROM the water aboard the Star of Saugatuck? Better yet treat yourself to a pontoon rental from "Making Waves" in downtown Saugtauck and cruise the river, or a hip-cool boat from Retro Boat Rentals. And you can't come to Saugatuck and not hit the Dunes Ride! Better yet you can rent a Kayak from Jack. Seriously that's his name! Even better he lives on a farm and actually has a Yak. (Ya can't make this stuff up. people!)

This is definitely where ya wanna come kids. You'll see why we have friends and families who come every year and have been for generations. It becomes not just a vacation but a tradition. Come join us.

Outgoing, fun-loving and quick with a laugh. I found my paradise and like to share our little piece of heaven with others. Love the water and get out on it whenever possible and this is the perfect place for it. Embrace sunsets, enjoy a good meal and an occasional cocktail.
