About the Property

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

WELCOME TO YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME! Our Haven of Bliss Cottage located in charming South Haven, Michigan and is available for weekly guests. Our home is on a tree-lined residential street located directly off North Shore Drive. Beautiful Lake Michigan, with its pristine, sandy shoreline is one block from the cottage. The historic harbor town of South Haven is one mile from our home and is the ideal town for fun-filled vacation activities for all ages.

For your outdoor pleasure, our large (3 lot) shaded lawn is perfect for lawn games. The double-wide hammock invites you to relax and the fire pit is ready for campfires in the evening. The large deck attached to the house has a bistro table with chairs and an umbrella, perfect for having a peaceful cup of coffee in the morning or for lounging when you return from the beach. There is a gas grill on the deck for your use at mealtimes. There is off-street parking for vehicles. There is a large, sturdy wagon available for you when taking your towels/chairs/toys to the beach. Beach chairs and coolers are available.

Indoor amenities include a family-friendly, open concept, living room, dining room/kitchen, sitting room and screened-in porch. The 14'x16' screened-in porch is really the heart of the cottage, a place to meditate and dream. It is furnished with a wicker swing and a cushioned sofa. There is ample room in the cottage for guests to pursue either group or individual interests. All rooms have plantation blinds for privacy and lighting preferences. All rooms, including the screened-in porch, have ceiling fans. A large-capacity window air conditioner cools the entire cottage when needed. Another window air conditioner is located in the master bedroom. Media conveniences include cable television, wireless internet access, and two DVD players. We have board games for traditional family fun. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing meals and for dining. There is a high chair and booster chair for children. Small appliances include a coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave and crock pot. Kitchen linens are provided.

Sleeping accommodations, for six, include two bedrooms, one bedroom with a king-sized bed and one bedroom with two double beds. There is a futon bed in the living room, a pull out double-sized sofa bed in the sitting room and there is a portacrib available. Cotton bed linens are provided.

There is one bathroom with tub/shower and bath towels are provided. Guests are requested to bring their own beach towels. There is a washer and dryer for guest usage.
