About the property

Cute 2 Bdrm Cottage, Steps From Lake Michigan & a 630 Ft Long White Sand Beach

We have had a beautiful Summer, and expect it to carry through the Autumn! Don't miss the gorgeous changing colors of the leaves! the soft rustle as they fall to the ground, the crunch as you walk through them on your nice, relaxing walk through the countryside, along the white sandy shores of Lake Michigan.

Get away from the hustle-and-bustle of the city, and breath the fresh air! Relax in front of the fireplace at our cozy & charming cottage on beautiful Lake Michigan, conveniently located just a 45 minute drive from the Grand Rapids Int'l Airport and 2 1/2 hours from Chicago.

Just a short walk to the white sand beach through a top-rated park, you can enjoy your morning coffee, listening to the lapping of calm Lake Michigan, or watch the gorgeous sunset in the evening.

Not only does the park offer over 600 feet of sandy beach, but it also includes a baseball diamond, picnic tables, 2 modern restroom buildings, and a playground.

Or, enjoy drinking a glass of wine (or whatever is your preference) on the deck, in the privacy of your own miniature park, back at the cottage, surrounded by the peaceful rustling of the giant red, orange and yellow leaves.

Or visit with your friends, late into the night, watching the stars, around the firepit, roasting marshmallows...

Our lovely 2 bdrm 1 bathroom cottage sleeps up to 6 people, includes a fully equipped kitchen, a barbeque, washer and dryer, free long-distance calling and wifi, for your convenience.

If you decide to venture out, you will love the wineries, chocolaterias, steamboat tours, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, museums, parks, festivals in the nearby towns of Douglas, Saugatuck and South Haven, or go hiking up Mt. Baldy! (We include more information in our welcome package, and would be happy to answer any other questions, if we can!)

For all you beer lovers, West Michigan features many award winning micro-breweries, all within a short distance.

Please come visit, and make Lakeshore Haven your Home away from Home!...

Why Rachel chose Fennville

We chose this property because the cottage is so inviting & cozy! We have enjoyed the beach and the local surroundings for the past 30 years, and when we found this cottage, with it's park-like yard near the beach, it was the perfect location! We wanted to spend more time here, and figured others would too!

What makes this cottage unique

It's just as beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer, and there is no end to the outdoor activities.

Very pleased with our stay

  • 5 of 5

House was just as described...well stocked kitchen...very clean throughout..bathroom was spacious. Deck and patio table were nice...and the screened in 4 seasons room was perfect to relax in. Upstairs bedroom great for multiple kids. We would definitely return. The beach was excellent..was just a 1 min drive..easier than walking since parking in the beach lot was plentiful

Adorable and charming cottage with lots of space for family time!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at this adorable property and were so sad to leave it today — it was so evident that lots of thought, time and planning, along with a lot of love have gone into making this cottage what it is — a cozy and charming home away from home. From the comfortable and adorable furnishings, to the extensive and charming library of books, to the wide range of educational and fun toys and games, this property had it all! The kitchen was fully stocked with so many supplies and cookware (there were even cooking items we don’t even have in our home kitchen)! And the upstairs loft is just precious — it reminded us of the Darling children’s nursery in Peter Pan; our kids loved “their space” upstairs. There was plenty of room to spread out upstairs as well as the rest of the house. And, the play area in the basement is very inviting and has tons of puzzles, games and creative toys (we even found Tinker toys)! One of our favorite spots in the house is the awesome front screened in porch — be sure to plug in all of the Christmas lights/clear lights at night in the porch! The cottage reminded us of being at Summer camp — there was lake/beach access through the park, and the cottage is set in a wooded setting. There was a fire pit and a great patio set. The garage had lots of fun outdoor activities, too — even a croquet set! All of the water/beach activity equipment (boogie boards, beach chairs, sandpails, etc.) are in the garage, too. We didn’t need to bring everything we did from home because the owners already had it at the cottage! If you find yourself needing an entire day at the cottage without leaving, there are so many activities to keep everyone entertained! The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive and suggested many activities (which we appreciated). Fennville is a great location — with an easy driveable distance to South Haven and Saugatuck. This was a great vacation spot and we highly recommend it!

House and yard were wonderful! Had everything we needed and very relaxing?

  • 5 of 5

House was everything noted. Clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed for a family of 5. Love the yard and feeling of being away from everything, but still close to many fun activities. It was nice to meet the owner at the beginning of our stay and get helpful hints.😊?

Great amenities, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Despite being a 2 bedroom, the house has a lot of room to spread out. The main living area was larger than we expected and having space in the basement is an added bonus. So close to the park/beach yet feels very secluded. Kitchen is well stocked and we love getting a little welcome basket. Very well maintained property, we would rent again.

Great cabin for family with kids

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying in this cabin with our 2 kids (21months, and 5yo). Plenty of toys and the playroom in the basement kept them busy. The owner was quick to respond to any questions about the house. Everything was clean and kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Best part was the fire pit in the big backyard, and there was even firewood provided. 2 minute walk to the lake and a nice park for kids to play in. Highly recommend this cabin to any family looking to enjoy Michigan.

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer at Lakeshore Have and it was exactly as we remembered it. Comfortable, convenient and well-appointed. I took naps in the hammock, we watched the Perseid meteor shower from the park next door and collected fossils from the beach. Great relaxing vacation!
