The open kitchen, living and dining area have a panoramic view of the lake. As you step out through the slider there is a small patio with table and chairs to enjoy watching the activities on the lake and beautiful sunsets.

The kitchen is well supplied including a coffee maker and filters. Bring your own paper supplies.

Once you are on the beach there is a box with beach chairs an umbrella. Due to weather conditions the fire pits were lost in the storm. We do allow fires on the beach in a stone ring, please bring your own firewood. You can walk for a long distance on the sandy beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband Joe and I have been owners of the cottage property since 2004, the Get Away cottage was completely renovated in 2010. We did most of the work ourselves and take great pride in the beautiful finished cottage.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
This cottage is located next door to our larger cottage Serenity Sunset Cottage. Many times we were asked if there was a place for the Grandparents, or other family members to stay while the family was in the large cottage. Or there has been many who just want to come as a single person or couple. We made Get Away for 2 guest/ one bedroom/ spacious living room/kitchen and dining area, bath with walk in shower/ washer and dryer and a lovely out door patio with a view of lake Michigan. Very peaceful

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
My husband and I live in the house to the south of the cottage, we respect your privacy, and try to make your stay as pleasant as we can. We are just a few miles from towns with many activities. We do have stairs to the beach with beach chairs and umbrellas for our people to use. You can walk for many miles of the beach. Most people just like to come and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, the spectacular sunsets, and a cool drink on the patio. We love this tranquil area and would love to have you come and enjoy it also.
