Property description

Our 4 bedroom, 2 Bath Cottage House is the perfect getaway- near the beach, shopping and restaurants, yet set apart from the crowd. After a busy day of sun, sand and surf or shopping, enjoy sitting on the patio or in the front yard on our colorful Adirondack chairs to relax, view the Lake and plan the next day! At the end of the street are benches to enjoy the sunset or a quiet morning cup of coffee. You can bring the Chairs round back to join the other Adirondacks for s'mores, stories and songs by the fire.
The Cottage House sleeps 8, and with permission we allow two sleeping bags for two more on the floor. Home is beautifully renovated and updated with new Kitchen, Bathrooms, Laundry and much more. We look forward to greeting you when you arrive and answering your questions to help you have a great visit in charming South Haven!
