About The Owner

Maggie & Gary Benz own the cottage and have been owners in Linden Hills since 1984. We have raised our two sons in the 'hills' and look forward to summers on the lake.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Southwest

The private wooded dunes of the area give us a chance for a cool, shady retreat in the woods as a contrast to the hot sunny days on the beach

What makes this house unique

Our cottage is in an area of wineries and yummy fruit orchards. Lots of local restaurants, antique stores and art galleries are open for our exploration. We also enjoy a selection of public golf courses.

Lake Michigan Cottage with Private Beach Access in South Haven

Loved This House!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful. It is located in a secluded area near Lake Michigan. The beach is a short walk down a hill. When sitting on the deck you can hear the waves from the lake.

The bluffs are steep, so you do need to watch children near them. Michigan is known for its beautiful bluffs and sand dunes. They are quite a site to see and very beautiful.

The house was charming and clean. It is a short drive to South Haven and Saugatuck. Having bonfires on the beach, at night, was my favorite part of our trip. I highly recommend staying here. Also, I received my security deposit back one week after my stay. I would love to stay here again next summer!
