Waterfront House in the center of the village

Located in: Douglas
Before you enter the 1830's door at 11 Water Street in Douglas you will be on the front porch and can rock on one of the rocking chairs and watch the neighborhood. When you do enter you will be in the high ceilinged dining room of this new, luxurious 3500 square foot home with an antique dining room table with seating for 8. Bayou House won a Heritage Preservation Award in 2006.

The three Baker davenports in the adjoining living room face the water and a large gasburning fireplace; they open through French doors to a screened porch overlooking the water and the park next door. This leads to the large deck with a gas grill off the kitchen, also overlooking the water. The kitchen, upstairs, is pictured with its charming all glass eating area, granite counters, stainless appliances and bar.

There are three bedrooms and three bathroom on this level, two with king sized beds and one with two queens. Only the bedroom with the queen size beds does not face the water. All other bedrooms and rooms have the wonderful view.

Downstairs you will find 10 foot ceilings and all but one bedroom overlooking the waterfront. You will enter the second kitchen in the large glass room with a pool table. Adjoining this room is a large downstairs living room with the second TV area, a large sectional and the second gas burning fireplace. This house is designed with the idea of a large family get-together, a large family, two families, or for corporate groups. On this level you will find the computer with hi-speed internet.

The downstairs kitchen also has a double door refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, gas stove, compactor, and stools for four at the granite counter.

Upstairs has a large deck with gas grill, downstairs has patios, swings, furniture and a charcoal grill.

Bayou House is ideal for families, business groups, and reunions but is not suitable for weddings or events as we are located in a downtown area.

On the lower level there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a king size bed and one with two twin beds.

There is tie up space on the boardwalk for several shallow draft boats and there are five kayaks, a row boat, and two paddle boards on the dock. There is a firepit and seating near the waterfront.
It is one short block to two major restaurants, galleries, and downtown Douglas. The well-known Lake Michigan Oval beach and Douglas Beach are a short-beautiful drive.
For additional or alternative rental see: vrbo #444711 or vrbo#410920
The City of Douglas does not permit weddings at this location. You may check out the J Petter Gallery, wine Bar and Gallery Barn for wedding venue.
