The A-Frame of Saugatuck

3 Bedrooms


Known locally as The A-Frame of Saugatuck, this historic landmark was originally built in the 1950s, and in 2022, the Sinchaks decided to renovate the home while preserving as much of its historic nature as possible. The home remains less than 15 feet from the water’s edge and its iconic, A-shaped roof remains its most recognizable feature.

As A-frames are known for their interior abundance of natural light, this home’s entire waterfront has become a wall of windows with expansive, unrivaled view of the water and downtown Saugatuck. Plus, the interior of the home has been expanded to include bedrooms, lofts, and luxury modern home amenities like a rooftop deck veranda. During holidays, the panoramic firework views are unparalleled.


A unique property requires a spectacular location, which is why The A-Frame of Saugatuck is positioned directly across the lake from downtown Saugatuck. Yet, it doesn’t only have the most spectacular views of the entire downtown, the A-frame is a short walk away from Saugatuck’s famous public Chain Ferry, which shuttles our guests between our vacation home and downtown, no driving or parking necessary.

The A-Frame of Saugatuck provides a rare combination of Saugatuck Harbor and private dock, downtown restaurants and dune hiking at Mount Baldhead, access to Lake Michigan and a harbor full of boats, music, and amazing views. Like we said, spectacular.


A-Frames are known for cozy interiors, but also a lack of squarefootage – not so at this expertly renovated and expanded home. In keeping with the historic nature of the house, the open floor plan of the main room is a nautical dream and includes two bedrooms, full bath, and kitchen, while the second floor has been expanded to include a second-story veranda, bedroom, full bath, and a loft-style living area. The third floor loft, accessible by ladder, is simply an added bonus. The perfect place to nap, read, and take in the views.


The A-Frame’s fully renovated gourmet kitchen was designed for entertaining and includes Kitchenaid appliances, stone countertops, and a large, centered island that doubles as a dining table. Did we mention the views? Washing dishes never looked so good.

Outside, a natural gas grill is accompanied by outdoor seating, a firetable, and jacuzzi. So whether your family and friends want to gather round the island for a late-night treat, indulge in a feast of local delicacies, or grill the perfectly cut steak, The A-Frame of Saugatuck is a special place to celebrate your loved ones through food.


It’s true Erica Sinchak’s iconic A-Frame sits mere feet from the waterfront, but that’s not all guests come to experience from a stay at this location. For convenience, guests are supplied with a spacious driveway and parking area in back, in case guests are coming from multiple locations.

Out front, a waterfront dock provides summer vacationers with casual access to the water for kayaking or paddle-boarding, as well as a place to moor a guest-provided boat (launched via nearby locations). Access to public docks in downtown Saugatuck are also available, for ease of access to downtown via boat. Plus, the public Chain Ferry is a short walk from the A-Frame, for immediate access to downtown on foot.

Stayed here 2 nights for a girlfriends' weekend and this house exceeded our expectations. Besides being absolutely gorgeous, the house was squeaky clean and so thoughtfully stocked, there was nothing else we wanted or needed. The location is perfect...just a super short walk from the chain ferry. We spent a lot of time outside by the water and enjoyed both the firepit and the hot tub. Erica was very responsive and so sweet. I'd love to return here and I highly recommend renting this beautiful house.
