Why Betsy and John Seno chose South Haven

We bought Little Blue when our 3 children were very young and drifting apart from one another. The lack of electronics, brought our children to rediscover nature and the fun they could have with each other. The adventures in the woods, discovering wildlife, board games and uninterrupted family time. The possibilities are endless with No WI_FI or internet.

Wishing 6 stars was an option

  • 5 of 5

Had a fun and long-planned weekend at Little Blue. The cabin was adorable with plenty of charm and enough rooms for all 4 of us to have private sleeping space. Super fun fire pit space and cozy living room. The lake was high so we took a quick drive to the local public beach. We will be back again next year. Thanks Betsy and John!

Little Blue is a great cottage with a lot of charm! The Indoors & outdoors offer good entertainment

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and 2 kids. Little Blue offered the exact tranquility and charm one would expect from a woodsy cottage. The fire-pit offered s'mores fun for the kids and peaceful relaxation for my husband and I. The cottage is exactly as described. Although the water at the private beach is too high, my kids loved picking rocks there. The owners offer all the necessities you could need plus more! The location is nestled right between the major South Haven and Saugatuk beaches, which was convenient. There is not much I would change about it.

Little Blue was cozy and very comfortable in a lovely wooded setting.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay in Little Blue. It was very clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable and the window air conditioner kept the place cool and decreased the August humidity. We enjoyed the back deck and spent a lot of time out there. The outdoor shower was a great addition as we all came home from the beach covered in sand!

The owners were very helpful when texted a question and left condiments and assorted things to make our stay more comfortable. Our favorite Lake Michigan beach- Pier Cove was just 10 minutes away- and was so warm we could swim every day.

We came home yesterday, today our 5 year old grandson was asking to go back. 😀

pleasant, cozy family cabin by beach

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, very cozy and well loved place. Everything you need. Would definitely stay again. Nice neighborhood to walk in and small rocky beach but still fun to walk along and explore. Large selection of home movies and novels to read. My kids loved looking at all the little nooks and crannies in the place and had a great time (age 6 and 8). Very private with large double lot and well maintained. Nice deck and grill area too as well as bonfire area. Perfect vacation spot for casual family get away!

A spade is a spade

Stephen N. The reason you didn't receive your deposit back is due to damage done to the rear slider, not the screen. This cottage is checked prior to your arrival as well as your departure leaving no one responsible for damage except the renter. Combine the damage left, with the lack of cleanliness on the renters part requires the owner to pay more money as a result of your negligence.

I am the one who finds and reports the damage.

If you want your deposit returned, then you might want to be an ethical renter.
