About Eric and Katherine Suender
We have rented our cottage for over 14 years. We are both teachers for over 25 years, so for the high season we are available 24/7 to assist with any needs you may have. We are always happy to help with restaurant suggestions, activities, etc. Of course our favorite time is enjoying the cottage with our friends and family from Illinois. With four bedrooms, three on the main level and one downstairs, a brand new Master Bathroom (2015) on the main level and a shower bathroom on the lower level, our cottage is the perfect location to get together with family and friends.
Eric and Katherine Suender purchased this House in 2003

Our kitchen has a double oven, flat top stove, large microwave, dishwasher, large toaster oven, toaster, coffee pot, hand mixer, blender, griddle, waffle maker, spices, and plenty of pots, pans, table ware and silverware.

The living room has a 60" smart, flat screen television, blue-ray player, lots of DVDs, 2 sofas, love seat and Lazy Boy recliner. The kitchen has seating for 13. We also have many games and children's books, just in case there is a chance for some quiet moments inside. For kids we have an outdoor shower, life jackets, beach toys, beach wagon, stroller, high chair, changing table, pack and play, booster chair, child's potty, and potty circle.

Perfect for girls weekend
There were 10 of us girls and we loved ability to walk to the beach and downtown shops and wineries. Katherine was always responsive and professional. What a great host and house!
Beautifully renovated cottage, close to the beach
My brother and sisters and I were very pleasantly surprised at how nicely this cottage fit our needs. In particular we were excited about how well the kitchen was supplied, and the bathroom was as nice a one as I have ever encountered in a vacation home. It was close enough to quite a few beaches... we ended up using the Packard Park beach as the Oak Street beach was terribly crowded, probably due to the high water in the lake. Our group could comfortably sit in the living room, and the extra table in the dining room/kitchen was perfect for us to do a puzzle on. This is obviously a well-loved, homey cottage, and we enjoyed our stay.
Clean, beautiful home a close walk or drive to many public beaches
Very attentive hosts. The home was clean, spacious, and cozy. We loved it and will recommend to our friends!
Great House! Very fun time!
This house is on a lovely, tree-lined, quiet street a few blocks from the sandy beaches of South Haven; older kids can easily walk back and forth on their own as the streets are not busy. Very nice that owners offer the use of their wagon to transport little ones or all the beach accessories. Kitchen had every appliance and item we needed for our simple meals and then some. Bring some wood (or purchase at local gas station) to enjoy s'mores around the fire pit. Our group had a fabulous time!
Thank you. We hope to have you back next summer!
Great place to stay with kids!
Our family stayed here with two other families (we all have small children) and we had a great time. The cottage had everything we needed, especially for the kids, and the back yard was great for grilling. Just a short walk to the nearest beach, but we often walked about 15 minutes to get to North Beach, mostly so we had access to ice cream.
Katherine was a great host, available whenever we had questions.
I think the only negative thing about the house is the lack of a washer and dryer. They provided plenty of bath towels, but our beach towels and blankets could definitely have used a wash after a few days.
Thank you Kate for your review. We appreciate your comments and we are looking into installing a washer and dryer for renter use in the fall. We hope to host you again soon.
Cozy Cottage with great amenities
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Happy Ours Cottage. The large up-to-date kitchen was filled with pots, pans, and cooking supplies. There was plenty of seating for our group of 10+ people. We loved the large screen televisions in several rooms, as well as the DVDs and games available. The newly renovated bathrooms were very nice as well. The main floor bedrooms were a little cramped for our group. Also, we could have used one more bathroom since we had quite a few adult females all wanting to use the main floor bathroom. The downstairs bathroom was accessible only by going through the bedroom area. Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating.
It was built in the 1924 and was one of the original cottages of the north side resort community. We have made extensive renovations and restorations to capture the feel of relaxation and fun for your stay in South Haven! We have a long driveway that can accommodate up to four vehicles.
