Sunset Cottage Beach House
average rating of 4.0 based on 3 reviews

Great place. Great views

  • 2 of 5

Great views and house had everything we needed and more. We lucked out on weather as it was perfect

Access to beach was difficult due to beach erosion as we had to get ladder out of garage to get down to beach. Couple of the 133 steps needed major repair

Had a bee issue in lake side bed room

Over all great 3 evening stay would do again

Couldn't have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

Nine family members and 2 dogs from Chicago, Kansas and Maryland met for a week at Sunset Cottage and had a great time! The house was spacious and suited all of our needs. There was nothing we didn't need that the house didn't have. It goes without saying that the sunsets were AMAZING! We loved the screened in porch, the hot tub, and the private beach! The location was one thing we weren't sure of, and we ended up loving it! We easily visited many amazing towns nearby including St. Jo, South Haven and Saugatuk.

The only slightly negative things to mention are that the steps down to the beach are very steep and pretty rickety in spots. Those of us under 65 managed them just fine, but it is some work but well worth it for the private beach and all the fun amenities that are included in the shed for our use. Also, we noticed that the basement area was really cold compared to the main level. Would've been nice to have that evened out a bit so we could hang out more in the amazing basement space more.

The management team for this property was amazing to work with! THANK YOU!

Great Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great stay at Sunset Cottage!

The house is meticulously clean, and spacious enough for 10 people. All amenities are in place (dishes, cleaning supplies, tons of clean beach and bath towels), and cable, wi-fi, etc were all working properly.

The view of the lake from the back porch/deck Is just gorgeous. The beach is nice and the shed even had beach chairs, umbrellas and toys available for use.

Just an FYI- there are over 100 steps down to the beach, so older guests or those with very small babies or toddlers may find that a challenge.

We would definitely book again!
