About the Property

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

"Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses" ~ George Herbert

Winter felt long, and now you need a nice, relaxing, fun-in-the-sun vacation with family and friends! Or maybe you need some quiet time to catch up on your reading or your writing. Or you just need to get out of the city, the hustle-and-bustle, and breathe the fresh air!

It's time! Time to get out into the countryside! And not just any countryside will do!

Come stay at our very 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, while listening to the cicadas and watching the fireflies. 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, air conditioning, 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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Fennville, MI, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's just as beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer, and there is no end to the outdoor activities.
