The cottage offers one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, and living room area with a pullout queen size sofa sleeper. The kitchen is fully equipped and just outside is a patio with all of your grilling necessities! If you enjoy spending your days and nights on the beach, this is the perfect place for you!

About Cara Montgomery

Jason and I have been managing this property for ten years now! Great friends of ours own the cottage and live in Arizona. We both grew up in South Haven and love everything the small town has to offer.

Cara Montgomery purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cara Montgomery chose Southwest

You really can't get much better than this! Privacy if you want it, but close enough to others if you want to make new friends. No driving or lugging your things down thousands of stairs to get to the beach, just a short jaunt up the sand to grab a beverage or use the restroom. Walk to town, stay on the beach all day and all night...

What makes this cottage unique

One of few properties located on Lake Michigan!

Location cant't be beat!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to South Haven many times staying at condos and this was the first time experiencing a cottage. End unit was key (great to load and unload the car plus neighbors only on one side). The cottages are right on the beach so how awesome is that!? Walk a few blocks to town and burn iff the Shermans ice cream you wont want to miss at the lighthouse pier! Longboard, kayak, bike rentals are 2 blocks away at Outback Outfitters. Cara was wonderful to work with and was most helpful. Definitely a gem if a spot you wont find a better price for the value! Already planning a return!!!

I really enjoyed my stay, I didn't spend as much time as I would have liked to. Hopefully I'll be able to stay there again next summer maybe for a longer stay.

Peaceful, Beautiful and Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage. It is up from the beach just a bit which some might not prefer but for us we enjoyed the quiet and especially the yard area for our boys to run around. The cottage itself had everything we needed and was done nicely. The majority of our time though was spent on the beach and shared deck area which we thoroughly loved! If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with a breathtaking beach, this is the cottage for you!

Great getaway to one of the most beautiful beaches in the country

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, would def come back. The cottage is quaint and had everything we needed. Meijer is located 1 mile away to stock up on groceries. Town is only 0.5 miles away. There is a great breakfast joint called Bundes, it's a bakery and they offer Starbucks brew which is only 0.4 miles away. The sunset are terrific, the unit is nice because even though it shares the patio and beach with all the other residents the grassy area seems like its meant for this unit which means you have it all to yourself. This was perfect for our 9 month old who needs some space to get around. The internet was down when we were there but it's being worked on, the owners were all over it it seemed. Overall a wonderful vacation!
