South Haven cottage description

This is a quiet getaway cottage, just a pleasant walk from Lake Michigan. A great place to share with friends, relax, re-center and recharge. Mornings in the woods, afternoons on the beach, dinner grilling on the deck, evenings basking in the glow of romance, friendship and the fire pit.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We're a close-knit family living in the Midwest that really treasures making loving memories and supporting healthy, wholesome fun.

                  Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
                  We have a large family and extended family. This property allows one or two families to be close together and really share each other's company, the uncrowded beach and magical evenings by the fire pit. Nobody has to jump in a car or go back to a sterile hotel room in the middle of the evening. Family and friends can hang out as late as they want and retire to their bed a few steps away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Dune Cottage is in the shadow of a Lake Michigan dune. There are 2 or 3 routes to the beach, depending on your preferences. Each route is a few 100 yards and varies between walking through the forest, roads and dune. The beaches are not crowded. So you're able to enjoy Lake Michigan on your own terms. The town of South Haven provides golf, restaurants, groceries, boating, movies and antiquing just a few minutes away. This property also boasts a quiet, friendly neighborhood, scenic deck and fire pit (stocked with firewood). Dune Cottage is just a few 100 yards from some of the most private beaches on Lake Michigan. And Van Buren State Park is less than a mile away. We are also about 1/2 a mile the Van Buren Trail. So there are opportunities for an extended nature walk, bike ride or snowmobile ride. So it's pleasant walk to beach.
