About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This 1920's cottage has been remodeled with new finishes, windows, central air conditioning and other pleasing amenities. It's perfectly located in the popular North Beach area, only steps from the beautiful, expansive beaches of Lake Michigan. It's across the street from a large park that overlooks the boat marinas and the fascinating Michigan Maritime Museum. A fun walk over the drawbridge takes you right into the heart of South Haven's historic downtown. You'll love the Cottage, the beaches, the walks, the town and all the memories you'll make.

Be a guest during the 92nd year of 'The Little Cottage' summer seasons. The dogwoods and wisteria will be blooming if you come early and the beachgrass will be waving if you come midsummer or in the fall. This little cottage is a special place. It feeds the soul and makes wonderful, special memories that can last a lifetime. Guests return year after year.

The cottage is a duplex: 'EAST 'O THE SUN' and 'WEST 'O THE MOON'. Rent one or both units. Each is equally lovely. Or, rent one and have your friends or family rent the other. Each unit has two bedrooms. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and retain a nice historical and slightly whimisical flavor. There is plenty of private parking.

The outdoor areas are perfect for relaxed summer fun. There's plenty of green space, white picket fences, and a nicely gated entry arbor.

Keywords: Great location, green spaces, special spot, easy and level walk to beach.

Great location & great price

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for an extended weekend getaway with a friend and my two children. The cottage is very quaint and a really great location - only a little more than a block to a beautiful beach and also a short distance into town for shopping, dining, etc. Very fun waterside restaurant just down the street by the bridge. Owner was very accomodating. Make sure to bring bathroom towels....we forgot!

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at this cozy cottage July 23-30th. We thoroughly enjoyed the quaintness of the cottage and the wonderful front yard to sit in the shade and enjoy a book. We loved the short walk to the beach, the closeness to a great restaurant, and a very short ride to a golf course or fresh fruit market. The cottage was clean and well-maintained. We definately want to come back for another wonderful stay!!!!!!

Just spent a week here and it is every bit as charming as it appears in the pictures here. It was clean, well maintained and in a great location. It's situated between the beach and town so there is always something to do. Also there is a park right across the street with a magnificent view of the beach. I highly recommend this spot for a summer vacation!
