About the property

Darling two bedroom cottage, one block from Packard Park beach and playground and four blocks from town. Newly renovated, new furnishings, freshly painted, new carpeting and flooring, new shower, new mattresses and bedding. New owners. We vacationed in South Haven two years ago with our family and loved the North side of South Haven and found this home and cottage on the same street we rented. It's a perfect spot in the very best location, and we are pleased to offer our cute cottage for rent weekly and daily in the off-season. You will immediately be welcomed by a large deck with new furnishings for your outdoor pleasure. Everything inside the cottage is new and fresh in a beach theme. Full size bed in one bedroom with a full size and twin bunk bed in the second. Kitchen is fully equipped with apartment size stove, microwave and full size refrigerator. Seating comfortably for 4-5 at dining table, but we bet you will eat outside on the deck most days. Come see why we love South Haven!

About Susan Kage

New owners with a passion for Lake Michigan

Susan Kage purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Susan Kage chose South Haven

Grew-up on an inland lake in the Grand Rapids area and always wanted to own a lake property. We decided to spend our kids inheritance and enjoy lake life in retirement. Here we are in South Haven!

What makes this cottage unique

Love the smaller beaches on the North shore and the beautiful Park Ave street homes with larger lots and unique character. Location, location, location!!

Clean - Adorable - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Claire’s Cottage. It was perfect for us and our two littles. So close to the beach/ parks/ town we could walk most places. Susan was such a sweet host and very helpful when ever I had a question. We spent most of our time at the beach with the beach gear provided or on the deck grilling and hanging out/ great summer vacation 👍?

Wonderful cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our visit to South Haven, and felt very at home in the cozy and charming cottage. It was a very short walk around the corner to the local beach, which we all thought was one of the best beaches we've been to, including the Atlantic and Pacific coast. Soft sand and clean, pleasant water that we enjoyed swimming and playing in. Owners Sue and Tom are very hospitable and sweet. We look forward to coming back someday!

Perfect cottage for a weekend get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

Claire's Cottage was the perfect get-a-way for my husband and I! The cottage is relly cute and has everything you need for a weekend or week long stay. It was about a half a block from the beach and a very short walk away from local restaurants and the downtown area of South Haven. Susan was wonderful to communicate with and made sure we had everything we needed for the perfect weekend. She also supplied us with chairs and an umbrella for the beach! We will be back to South Haven and will stay at Claire's Cottage again! Also, we received our deposit back a week after our stay.
