This bright and fresh cottage was meticulously renovated and furnished in 2011. Tucked away in the trees among other cottages, the property is also RV friendly if you want to park your own camper or trailer on the site. The property has a modern kitchen, modern bathroom, flatscreen TV, firepit and more. It is very close to one of the nicest parks and beaches on Lake Michigan. We are very proud of this property! This property is clean and new and the beach is only a few steps down from the bluff above, making it perfect for families.
This property is new and fresh. It was renovated in 2011 and has a modern kitchen and bath, quality wood floors, and nice furnishings. It sits among tall trees and other cottages in a quaint area that you will want to call home. A fabulous community beach is the equivalent of about four blocks away.
We spent a long 4th weekend at the cottage with our two little boys. It was quiet, relaxing and easy experience.
The extra-clean has the basics to have a self-contained experience (grill, full-ultensils, linens, etc), but 10 minutes from two great Michigan towns - St. Joseph and South Haven.
The public beach - Hagar Beach - has access to beautiful waterfront and is a one minute drive down the hill.
The owners were easy to contact and very gracious.
My husband and I stayed here this past week and were so happy we did. Not only was the house spic and span but was stocked with everything you could need (except towels). Which we knew about and were happy to bring our own. Sitting outside on the deck with complete privacy was the best. My daughter wants to book for late fall or spring of next year. Thank you John...you could not over rate this place.
This cottage is updated, clean, and tidy. It is down a gravel road tucked away in a densely forested area. It's very private. There's an outdoor grill and a front porch with a table for outdoor dining. There's a large lawn so bring corn-hole, horseshoes, and beach towels for sunning. The cottage is great for 2 people, but can accommodate 4 people comfortably.
My girlfriend is a wine lover. And, I am a beer lover. We both love a good meal. I planned a surprise trip to Michigan for her birthday this past July. We ate delicious meals in Saugatuck and Douglas Michigan. We sunned on the beaches of Lake Michigan. We visited a festival in St. Joseph. We visited the New Holland Brewery in Holland Michigan, Virtue Cider Company and Fenn Valley Vineyards in Fennville Michigan for tours.
The point I'm trying to make is that we were able to take short day trips to do all of these different activities from our cottage, which was conveniently located. I believe that if one goes into this rental situation intending to use the cottage as a place to sleep and securely keep one's things while exploring the great state of Michigan, one can't go wrong! My girlfriend and I love the state of Michigan and plan to return for a visit soon. We will use this cottage again.
A group of four of us stayed at this property and had the best weekend. It is very clean and well kept. The beach is within walking distance and the neighbors were all very friendly. Loved the firepit. Appreciated the price. Looking forward to a repeat visit. Oh and one more thing to note - the owner was quick to refund the security deposit.
I would not recommend this property. I've stayed at other properties listed on VRBO and have never been as disappointed as I was with this cabin. It was much more expensive than staying at a hotel without the amenities. The cabin is located down a dirt road and a longer walk to the beach than what is described on the website.
Upon arrival there was no toilet paper. When I called the manager, he told me to go buy some and he would reimburse me (I only received the money after contacting him 2 weeks later). You are required to bring your own bath towels and the manager asks that you wash all bed linens before leaving. This wouldn't be a problem if it didn't take over an hour for the sheets to dry and if I hadn't overpaid for this property.
When I booked the cabin, the description stated that the cabin slept 6. While I only had a party of 4, it was quite cramped between the sofa sleeper and a trundle bed. When I asked the property manager about this, the reply was "it will sleep 6 if someone brings a tent or pak n'play". I see the website now states the property sleeps 4 so at least the owner is now forethright about that aspect of the property.
The cabin is only partially finished. The one bedroom has a partical board floor and the shower is extremely small with cracks that have been caulked to hold it together. If you press against the shower walls they move, so good luck to anyone trying to take a normal shower.
In all fairness, the property owner and manager were polite about all my questions and concerns. That said, I would be polite as well if I had charged my guests Trump Hotel prices for a Motel 6 experience.
This property is in a fabulous, treed location. St. Joseph is a straight shot down M-63, and South Haven is located to the north. Nearby are a fabulous park and beach, antique dealers, terrific golf courses and wineries. We are super-close (just a few blocks) to a terrific family beach and park with just a few steps down to the water.
