A quaint and cozy cottage located in the heart of a quiet neighborhood, just a half a block away from the pristine shores of Lake Michigan. The inside is newly painted with carpeting that is a year old. The outside features a large deck, with a view of Lake Michigan.
Enjoy the peace and quiet of being a half a block from Packard Park, and one block from Stanley Johnston Park; yet walking distance to downtown South Haven. Downtown features many shops, a movie theater, and several restaurants.
Bristol Cottage is also a mile from Kal-Haven trail which is great for biking, running, and walking. Kayak and bike rental is a block away at 'The Outpost'. Sunsets are beautiful in South Haven, which can easily be enjoyed by walking a half a block to the beach, or enjoyed on South Haven's North Pier, just 6 blocks from Bristol cottage.
This cottage is a favorite for families or an ideal romantic get-away! Come once and you will want to return year after year.
We stayed at Bristol cottage over the week of 4th of July and had an amazing time! The location is perfect - less than a block in either direction you can take your pick of gorgeous "pocket" beaches (Packard and Oak) or you can walk a few more blocks and get crazy with all of the youngsters at North Beach. No car necessary! We walked to town quite often and only used the car to go to the grocery store. We loved being able to run back to the cottage if we needed to grab something. Thankfully the cottage had a wall AC unit because it was 90+ every day. The cottage is simple but cute and is exactly the type of low maintenance fun that you like to have on a relaxing beach vacation. We stuffed 2 adults and 4 kids in there which was a bit tight but it worked. Of special note was the "hideout" in the loft that my kids loved! The owners were a pleasure to meet and deal with. It was a wonderful, relaxing vacation and my kids are still gushing about it!!
We just returned from our 3 night stay at the Bristol cottage. The cottage has everything you could need for a stay in South Haven. It was very clean upon our arrival, and we were very pleased with the nice deck area. We could be on the beach in under 5 minutes time, so we didn't have to worry about parking! Great house, great location, and the owners were very pleasant and answered any questions. We hope to visit again!
