About Kim Fortner
We bought our cottage in 2007 because SW MI is our favorite summer destinations. We enjoy being centrally located to many popular beaches. We decided to rent the cottage so others could enjoy the area and see how beautiful SW MI is. The cottage is located on a quiet street with a large yard. There is plenty of parking if you decide to bring your boat.

There were 6 of us and we never felt crowded. It was a fantastic stay and we all loved this house. It was so clean and the beds were so comfortable!!!
Glad you enjoyed your stay in the comfort of our home! In the summer it's so nice sitting around the bonfire and in the screened in porch. Thanks for the nice review!
Great home away from home!
After hurricane Irma prevented our family from going on the vacation to Florida that we had been planning, we had to scramble to find another spot within a few days. We booked this online and within 24 hours, I received a phone call from the owner saying that she could accommodate us even on such short notice. Since we had promised our young children a beach vacation, this property worked great! It was only a 10 minute drive to the beach, and being centrally located between St. Joseph and South Haven, it was only a 20 minute drive to either fun location. The property had a large yard which worked great for the kids to play, and the home was large enough to sleep 8 or more which was more than we needed. The back screened in porch made for a great place for the adults to play cards and converse after the children went to bed! Overall, we all had a great time and will definitely think of this property the next time we want to visit the Lake Michigan area.
I was glad to help out. Having online credit card payments makes it easy to accommodate last minute reservations. I'm glad you had a nice time and enjoyed the beaches in SW MI, they certainly are beautiful!!
Country Cottage Comfort
During our stay at the country cottage, my family was very comfortable and relaxed. We enjoyed the screened in porch immensely and had plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and have their own space. We liked the convenience to Hardings Grocery Store and to the numerous beaches we visited. Kim and Jim were very helpful and provided immediate feedback to our questions. I highly recommend staying here to anyone considering staying in this area. You will enjoy every minute!
Thank you for the feedback Karen. Glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Please come back anytime!
Great Family Get-away!
Clean home and quiet neighborhood. Huge yard for the kids. Spent a lot of time in the large screened in porch and around the fire pit. Close to St. Joeseph, Lake Michigan and South Haven. Downtown Coloma has several nice taverns and restaurants. Only minor complaint was no DVD player and very limited selection of cable channels but great high-speed internet (~20 mb).
Thank you for the review Robert, glad you had a good time. In past years we had a DVD player and video library. However we found most guests had their own streaming accounts and it wasn't a feature they needed. It may be worth looking into expanding our cable channels next year. Thanks for the feedback.
Girls Getaway a Success!
Simply Perfect! My sister and best friend, and I had such a wonderful time! The house was everything we needed! From the ample size, to the modern decorations, to all the accoutrements in the kitchen and bathroom, it was a great stay. We even grilled in the screened in porch! Felt like a home away from home ;) So many great local places to eat and drink wine!
We look forward to coming again, staying longer, and may even bring a few more friends!
I'm so glad you had a great time and enjoyed the cottage. It's nice having a few wineries close to the cottage for a girls weekend. Contessa and Karma Vista are right in Coloma. There is also a fairly new winery close by - Vineyard 2121. Or if you don't feel like driving and want to take a winery tour, Fruitful Vine has several pick ups in the area. Hope to have you back next year!
clean and darling cottage
Clean and spacious cottage. Great backyard for family time and games. Well stocked kitchen for cooking for the fam. Good location to South Haven.
Glad you enjoyed the area. I love being so close to South Haven too. Not sure if you got the chance to visit St. Joe- it's also a short distance away and a fun town. Please come back anytime.
