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.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week staying at the cottage. We had everything we needed and were so close to everything-- beach, town, playground, etc. We could walk everywhere. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location for beaching it or shopping.

  • 4 of 5

Darling house. Only one bathroom was tricky with four women but we made it work. Bunk beds are really for children not 69 year old women but we managed. Great front porch for relaxing. We had a great time

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and we take guest comments very seriously. Our rental listing is super clear on the bedroom situation (bunk bed) and the single bath/shower; it's not for everyone, but seems to be perfect for young families, couples, and we've had many successful "girls weekends" with parties of four or more. We encourage potential renters to carefully read all the information in the listing and view all the pictures. We want our guests to have a good experience, too. We're happy you and your friends made it work.

Fantastic cottage for small family

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 with 2 young boys had a great time at the maple st cottage! The location to the beach, park, and town was amazing. the front porch was a clear favorite spot. Cottage was generally clean and stocked with everything we might need. One star deducted because the extra living room (back enclosed porch) wasn’t as clean—Sand was on the couch and loads of dead ants ( at least they were dead!) along the baseboards. Beyond that this cottage had a great setup for a beach getaway, lots of light in the living areas and Location, location, location!!!

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the front porch on this cottage! We began our days and ended our days on this beautiful porch. The cottage itself is absolutely charming and had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation week! The second bedroom was tight for our two teenagers, but the sleeping porch came to the rescue! Of course, the proximity of this location to the beach and town was the best yet for us (we've stayed in two other houses). We so appreciated the comfortable beds and the clean linens.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!!

Great location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our long weekend in South Haven! It is close to the beach and close to town- just a quick walk anywhere you need to get. And the house was even more spacious than anticipated- we had three adults and were able to spread out. We especially loved relaxing on the front porch. Would definitely book again!

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.
