About Dan H

We are avid South Haven vacationers! Love the water and the beaches. Ice cream occasionally!

Dan H purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Dan H chose South Haven

Our family vacationed in South Haven for many years before purchasing the Maple Street Cottage. We loved the two-block walk to the beach or to South Haven's eclectic downtown shopping district. The neighborhood is quiet and almost always includes vacationing families enjoying the same benefits of this great location.

What makes this cottage unique

The number one comment in our rental book is 'the beach' which is only two blocks away. And if you love to watch boats enter and leave the harbor you're minutes away. There you can also fish for salmon, trout, and perch. From the harbor, you can rent boats and jet skis, charter a fishing boat or sunset cruise on a sailboat. Walk to restaurants, cafes, shops, and art galleries. The South Haven restaurants are excellent and you can enjoy 33 miles of biking on the Kal-Haven bike trail which is nearby.

Second time staying at the Maple Street Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Maple Street Cottage. We tried a different place last year and realized that it wasn't worth staying someplace else. The Maple Street Cottage has it all. It has always been very clean when we arrive. And you can't beat the location. In the evenings we enjoy sitting out on the porch and listening to the sounds of Lake Michigan. When we return to South Haven we will definitely be staying here again.

Lovely little cottage in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is just about perfect. It's beautifully decorated in beach colors, blues & pale greens. It's a short walk to the beach and an equally short walk to downtown. The front porch is marvelous for an early morning coffee, late afternoon reading or get togethers with friends.The original back porch has been enclosed. It has a twin bed, and a futon, plus washer and dryer and a TV.

There is a large gas grill, a deck on the back with a picnic table. There is also a hammock. The yard is nicely landscaped with flowers and bushes.

It is air conditioned for those hot Summer days. There are a lot of kid toys, but no beach chairs or DVDs, so bring your own. Other than that....perfection.

Cozy & location is everything

  • 4 of 5

Location! Location! Location! This cottage was perfect for our family of four. We have two young children the short 2 block walk to the beach was perfect and the two block walk to town was amazing. We walked everywhere hardly used the car and the restaurants downtown are wonderful. We walked to kids corner every evening to play catch and watch the sunset. Awesome! Farmers market wednesday and Saturday mornings, a great selection of local items. The owner is very responsive to questions regarding the area and any needs you may have. South Haven is the perfect Michigan summer vacation destination.

Quaint cottage within short walking distance of beach and downtown

  • 5 of 5

Great seven-day stay with a family of four. The house is perfect for families with small children. The proximity to the beach is fantastic; you can get there within five minutes.

A great value for what you get. We can't wait to come back to South Haven.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family vacation at the Maple Street Cottage. It's perfect for a family with little ones (ours are 6 and 4). There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out, play board games, watch the Olympics(!), and relax. We cooked several meals at home ---- the kitchen was perfectly stocked ---- and walked into town (a quick 10-min walk) for several as well. The beach was an easy 5-min walk and the wonderful Kids Corner playground is just a few blocks away. The house is perfectly located. The only time we drove was to visit the Dunes and to go to the grocery store. The rest of the time, we walked or biked. The house was clean, the shower was really lovely, and the front porch was super relaxing (nice breezes from the Lake!). I already want to go back. I highly recommend this sweet little house to anyone, especially families with young kiddos.
