“Go fishing – make friends” – That should be the motto of the Goshorn Lake Family Resort in Saugatuck. This Michigan resort, set on pristine Goshorn Lake just outside Saugatuck’s city limits is rarely advertised because generations of guests return year after year to spend their Michigan vacation here. The resort is reminiscent of those places where you spent childhood summers.

This small deep lake is fed by Lake Michigan with just a narrow strip of elevated sand dune separating the two bodies of water. The private lakefront offers an expansive beach furnished with a kayak, rowboat and Adirondack chairs overlooking a swimming dock. This picture-perfect lake is ideal for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, row boating or just dropping in a baited hook to catch the evening meal.

The cottages and cabins scattered throughout the property are fun and informal. They also vary in extent of luxury. They feature one to several bedrooms and some offer fireplaces. They are all very distinctively decorated in traditional light pine, reproduction cherry or eclectic cottage-style furnishings – All have a patio or deck and kitchen facilities.

The resort feels like a summer camp, with cottages and cabins tucked off pathways into the natural landscape surrounded by grass and hardwood trees. In addition to the beach, there are abundant areas for children to play, including volleyball and shuffleboard courts, a jungle gym, a sandbox and a community swimming pool.

The staff treats guests like extended family – They are happy to help, lighthearted and enamored of the beautiful environment. At dusk entire families look out over carved paths and shadowed lawns towards Goshorn Lake – transfixed by pure Michigan sunsets.  In the evenings, “cottagers” grill on their patios, barbecue at the beach or sit around fire pits engaged in cosy conversations.

Goshorn Lake is the kind of place kids remember all their lives – a place with new friendships, exciting outdoor adventures and sheer freedom. Watch our video of a day at Goshorn!
