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 South Haven

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...

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!!!

BFF Fall Reunion

Cute cottage! Super clean and just a few steps from the beach and within walking distance to downtown South Haven's great restaurants and shops! The cottage is small, but we were fortunate to have an unseasonable warm weekend in mid-October, so we spent most of our time on the beach or near the campfire. We plan on returning next year, but will book the larger cottage with the view of Lake Michigan in case we are not as lucky weather-wise.

clean, well stocked, homey with a touch of beach deco.

  • 5 of 5

Was in town for local weekend festival. Great front unit, view of private front yard with small patio outside slider door, Was part of a bigger home with several units and also smaller cottages behind the home. Community deck behind all with a great private beach area. Mother Nature was exhibiting bad behavior so we didnt get to enjoy the beach or the firepit that was available. But I know there was a beautiful sunset view! Owners were very accomodating, especially when we inadvertently deposited our belongings into the wrong unit that was left unlocked when previous renters vacated, leaving our belongings locked inside upon returning back from setting up our booth at the festival . Jason & Cara contacted correct owner (several own this property), & they did so very quickly. We were all able to have a good laugh! Appliances worked well, good hot water, and clean. Only issue is we found chips in the sleeper sofa mattress cover, and even with the egg crate, this pull out may be more suitable for teenagers or younger children. Not a big deal. Bedroom bed was comfy, small closet for hanging. I would definitely rent again, especially if Mother Nature is in a better mood!!! THANKS

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.
