Great cabin near the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Cielo! We found the space to be clean and well stocked for our needs. It's a simple cottage with great charm. Plenty of space for our family (3 kids aged 11, 7, and 2). The walk down to the beach is a steep one, but absolutely worth every step! Our kids loved the outdoor shower and playing card games on the porch. We ate every meal at the picnic table on the porch.

It's a short drive into Silver Beach where there is shopping, resteraunts and other attractions, if you are looking for that. We much preferred the privacy of the cottage and beach where we rarely saw other people. It felt like our own private island. Definitely make a journey to the water at sunset.

Quaint little cottage was perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This quaint little cottage was a perfect trip for our family of four in late July. The cottage, just a short but steep climb from Lake Michigan, was the perfect respite from city life. Our kids, ages 8 and 3, loved the beach and we spent most of our time swimming and just hanging out as a family in the sand. We almost forgot it was a lake, the water was so warm and clear. The cottage itself boasted of a beautiful screened in porch that has the tranquility to rival a spa experience. The outdoor shower was one of my favorite experiences and we never set foot in the indoor shower because it was so enjoyable. All of the amenities worked great including the wifi and small tv/DVD player. Judy truly has made the cottage feel homey and stopped in to ensure we were doing well a few times during the stay. The eating in both St Joe and South Haven made the trip absolutely perfect. I 100% recommend Judy and the cottage...we will be back in many years to come!

A trip down Memory Lane!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage reminded all of us of the carefree summer days of our youth! Days spent at the beach, evenings cooking outside and nights gathered around family on the porch. This cottage, though simple, provided all the amenities one could need for a great stay on Lake Michigan. It is close to St. Joe where several other beaches were, and a town with so much to offer the tourists. Judy was a great host, and it made for the perfect vacation!

Fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and my 2 & 4 year old boys spent 4 nights here in July and we didn't want to leave! The cottage is the perfect size, with the exception of the tiny bathroom. But once you see the outdoor shower, you realize there is no need to use the small shower inside. The walk to the beach was perfect and our kids loved having their own area to play. I feel in love with the screen in porch and could spend hours there relaxing. We spent the evenings in St. Joseph with the kids as it was such an easy drive. This was a very needed vacation and I couldn't have asked for a better place.

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This place certainly lives up to its name! From the amazing screened porch to the awesome outside shower to the challenging, but worth it, trek to the beach (and back up again!), Cielo really is a little slice of heaven. If you want quiet relaxation, you've got it right there. If you prefer shopping and crowds, just take a short drive north or south and you'll have it. A beautiful setting and a caring owner make Cielo a wonderful choice for a lovely getaway. We hope to come back again. Thank you, Judy!

Cozy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I felt myself relax as soon as we got to this quaint cottage. A smile crossed my face when I entered and probably never left the entire time. I was probably smiling in my sleep! I was hoping to get back to my roots, when I spent lots of time on the beach as a teen. The beach was glorious! The only problem I had was the bed, as I have spinal issues. Met the owner on the beach and she was so gracious! She also sent her grandson over our first night to hand deliver a bottle of wine. Hoping to get back here again and highly recommend it to anyone seeking a relaxing beachy vacation!
