This classic 100 year old Lake Michigan authentic cottage, is located just 600 feet off (less than a five minute walk) of Pier Cove Beach on 10 wooded acres and adjacent to the 75 acre Pier Cove Nature Preserve. Located just 3 miles south of the Saugatuck/Douglas resort towns.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Pier Cove is a beautiful area along Lake Michigan. I have lived in the area for nearly a decade and my extended family has come to love the area as we spend many holidays here. It was a family decision to purchase this cottage in 2012 to preserve the 10 acres this charming cottage lies upon.

Why the Owner Chose Fennville, MI, USA:
This property and home are located just off Pier Cove Beach and adjacent to the Pier Cove Nature Preserve containing many trails and streams that flow out to Lake Michigan. It is conveniently located half way between South Haven and Holland, but just a few short miles into Saugatuck and Douglas resort towns. Within a few steps you can enjoy the beach, but within a short drive you have all the conveniences of shops, eating establishments, golf, fishing charters, live theater, and art galleries.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
From the cobblestone fireplace in the main room to the claw tub in the bathroom, this home is full of charm and simplicity from a by gone era. A true classic among the Lake Michigan cottages and never open to the public before. If a turn of the century vacation is what you had in mind, look no further. In keeping with its originality in mind, minimal changes have been made, but essentials have been well thought out, from new mattresses and bedding to updated appliances for the kitchen. A rain shower has been added for above the claw tub as the only shower is the one outdoor connected to the back of the house! Maximum Occupancy: Five {5}
