About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

True beach cottage on the front row on Lake Michigan's Magnificent Mile, beautiful beachfront with only a slope to the shore, no steps to endure. Live on the beach or walk to town for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Bring all the float toys you want or even pull your boat or jet ski right up to our shore for the day, it's your choice. Enjoy an adult beverage on our private beach during the day or a fine bottle of wine at your bonfire after the sun goes down. We've spent many a night watching the sun go down, gazing at the stars, and then watching the sun come up again the next morning. None of which you can do on any of the public beaches. When not on the beach hang on our common area large deck or in our quaint cottage with views of the lake. This is one of the original South Haven cottages that has been NEWLY REMODELED 2107 - new kitchen, bath, bedrooms, family room... for your comfort. We upgraded the amenities but left the charm.

Lake Michigan Beachfront Cottage with Spectacular Views NEWLY RENOVATED!!

Newly renovated. Upscale kitchen and appliances with beautiful views of lake.

  • 4 of 5

This will be our families fourth time staying at this cottage. For the price, you cannot beat the location, lake views, and private beach. The cottage has been recently renovated which includes brand new kitchen, upscale appliances, tile shower, and large bedroom remodel. It was a cute place to stay before, but the upgrades really make this an amazing location. While we were there, we had a small issue with guests not following general rules for the entire property. The owners of the cottage were extremely helpful and had remedied the situation within 15 minutes. One thing I would take into consideration is since the kitchen and one bedroom were made larger during the renovation, there are no longer closets to put your things. I would advise to pack on the light side due to lack of storage space for large suitcases, etc. This cottage is the perfect size for families of 4-6 or even a romantic getaway. In the larger bedroom there was even the perfect amount of space to put up a pack and play and still be able to close the door. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed the renovated space, we worked 6 long hard months to get it ready. As nice as it was, you were actually one of the very first to stay and we had not quite finished all of the finishing touches to complete the build out. We've since been back and installed tons of hooks and hangers throughout all of the rooms to accommodate everyone's bags, clothes, and towels. We even added hooks in the shower to hang your wet suits to drip dry!

Great cottage, great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a fun week. We loved the place and it was great being right on the beach. It seems simple and silly but I loved having a the little hooks to hang things. We will try and come to back!

Charming and cozy cottage, steps from Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such a wonderful time in South Haven and in this lovely, charming cottage directly on the beach. The owners, Ann and Gregg, were a joy to work with, communicated well and answered all questions promptly and the property itself was clean, updated, convenient, and extremely comfortable. The cottage was so well-equipped in every area, and it truly felt like home from the moment we stepped in the door! This is a beautiful cottage, and every room has special touches that make it unique and very inviting. The backyard (beach) was amazing! :) We ate most of our meals outdoors as there was plenty of comfortable seating and the weather was gorgeous. The fire pit was a special favorite of ours -- enjoying family and making memories.

We would recommend over and over! Many thanks for the wonderful hospitality, Ann and Gregg!

Beautiful cottage with a great location and view

  • 5 of 5

The cottage exceeded our already high expectations. The cottage itself is wonderfully decorated and had so much charm. The updates also make it feel like a brand new place.

We have never stayed somewhere that has a view like the one of the lake. Our family really enjoyed the private beach and the convenience of it being just a few steps from our door.

Our family of 5 had plenty of room and the beds were very comfy. The location is also great as it's only a few minutes from everything. This was our first visit to Michigan, and we look forward to our next visit and stay at this cottage.
