Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We bought the land (pictured here) in 2007 and completed the cottage in time for rental season 2011. We plan to live here one day possibly in the near future when our only child goes off to college. We currently live and work in Chicagoland and enjoy spending time at the cottage during the off season.

Why the Owner Chose Miami Park (South Haven, MI, USA):
We fell in love with this location immediately due to it's privacy and proximity to all that South Haven, Fennville, Saugatuck/Douglas and beyond have to offer. The cottage itself was built to spec by a company in Indiana and we take pride in maintaining and managing it ourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the convenience of the beach nearby and the sunsets are simply spectacular! We love seeing nature outside our doorstep like deer, red fox, bunnies and birds of all kinds. Star gazing at night; napping in the hammock by day; taking long walks along the beach have become pasttimes. We have favorite restaurants, farmers markets and local business owners that make us feel like a part of the community which is so welcoming in South Haven
