About Sandra Blood
Welcome to our home! We are the new owners as of December 2017. We chose South Haven for all it has to offer in every season. Our family enjoys the beaches, walks to town and bike trails (Kal-Haven and Van Buren) in summer time. The amazing sunsets in fall cannot be beat. Winters are magical from cross country skiing to the walks along the beach to see nature do its thing! Our kids enjoy walks to town to see a movie or grab some fudge. Coming here is a break from the busyness of life and a chance to reconnect in our sweet bungalow. We hope you find the joy here too.

Great house and location
We had a fantastic trip to South Haven. This house was a big part of it. Great updates and modern feel on the inside. Couldn’t ask for a better location to be central to walking to the beach, downtown, or down to the river to watch boats.
Thanks so much for a great week!
SoHappy Cottage is THE BEST !
Oohs and Ahhs from all of our family of 7 when we walked into the SoHappy cottage - what a perfect name for this charming, super clean and comfortable South Haven cottage. Bedding was terrific with lots of extra pillows. Plenty of lovely thick towels for the bathroom. The half bath at the back door meant no waiting to use the facilities which was very important with 2 young children! The kitchen was COMPLETELY furnished with everything needed to cook (and bake goodies) and serving plates, glasses, etc. for daily meals for large group sit-down meals. Pantry was filled with coffee, tea, spices and condiments. Paper goods, garbage bags, laundry and dishwashing/dishwasher soaps, etc. provided for the first couple days, much appreciated. Large outdoor table with umbrella for cookouts in a beautiful, flower-bordered patio. The pictures don't convey how large the cottage is - room for everyone to do their own thing without being "on top" of each other, and the living room with comfortable seating for movie watching nights for all of us. Walk out the front door, down a short street directly onto the Black River - from there a very short walk to the lighthouse pier for fishing and the fabulous South Beach for sunsets. We used the wagon from the shed almost daily for our trips to the beach. So many little thoughtful extras Sandra provided that made our stay absolutely memorable. We all loved our stay at the SoHappy Cottage and hated to leave when our week was over. Already checking calendars for our next stay!
Charming, updated beach bungalow.
We loved our recent stay at SOHappy. The house is clean and modern, but feels like an old-fashioned beach cottage. Great location. Folks should know that the water in the lake is very high this year, and beach space is limited!
Perfect location and plenty of room for our entire family!
Although we didn't have the best weather we still enjoyed our time here. The location was perfect, walking distance to the beach, downtown and restaurants! We walked everywhere! My boys really loved watching the boats and it was just a short walk down the street! The house was very welcoming and gave our family plenty of room to move around. We enjoyed the front porch on sunny days and the enclosed porch on the rainy days. It was nice to have the option of cooking out a couple nights too. Thank you for a great stay! Many GREAT memories were made!
Cozy and great location
This is a dynamite location. 3 blocks tonkids corner, 3 blocks to beach, 3 blocks to town. They had beach stuff including a wagon to carry the kids and our gear. It's clean and charming. We loved the front porch and little back patio. With kids there were 2 drawbacks, stairs to basement( they are blocked off) ours just managed to open the latch. It's right on a busy street made it difficult for kids to be outside with us relaxed. Otherwise we loved it and would go back.
So glad you enjoyed our home and South Haven! Our home is located on a typically quiet street. Because of our proximity to town and beach you may have experienced an uptick in traffic due to festivities that week/weekend. Hope to have you as our guests again soon! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Charming, nicely decorated and comfortable place to stay
Great location. We loved walking to the beach, park and town. The home was well stocked and comfortable. Very nicely decorated. Every family member enjoyed the home and the town.
