About the property

Just added new tumbled tile bath, Central HVAC,Great views and amenities

This was already a fabulous 2 bedroom cottage but I have remodeled it to make it a gem!

You may add the 1 bedroom cottage next door/ non contiguous walls but attached entry hall, for 3 king beds/3 baths.

The 2 bedroom cottage has 1500 SF of living space, add the one bedroom for 500SF more. The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the living room and each has bath, one with tub shower and one with walk in shower. There are 2 new king beds with luxury bedding ( none of that rental company scratchy kind) and towels.

New electric, plumbing, new hot water heaters, refinished floors.

Large living room with gas fireplace and windows facing the lake to enjoy breakfast or cocktails. Love seats, dining room with seating for 6. Kitchen with Dishwasher, disposal, gas stove, microwave, refrigerator freezer and a washer dryer area. Private parking and new HVAC. With the beach just across the street with no steps to climb up and down, a yard, new Webber gas grill and bikes to use during your stay.

If available, add the 1 bedroom cottage can be added if needed - it is separated from this unit. Great for parents who want separation from kids or 3 couples.

Why Marta Petter chose Southwest

It is an absolutely charming cottage where I want to live whenever not rented. Great views, charm of old plaster walls, fireplace, lots of windows. It just needed a bit of remodeling.

What makes this cottage unique

Great views, across from beach, easy stroll to town or pier. Among it all but away from it all.

WOnderful in every way

We enjoyed a post-Christmas break from the the city. Every aspect of the cottage was wonderful from the sweet gift basket, to the comfy beds, the fully stocked kitchen, and the sparkling bathrooms. We loved it!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a lovely long weekend with our son and daughter-in-law in this sweet cottage. The location was perfect, the house spotless and very nicely equipped. The furnishings offered both comfort and whimsy. The decorating was artful and tasteful -- simply charming. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough. We had an ideal stay.

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Michigan lake shore, traveling with another couple and two children under the age of 1, and we couldn't have been happier. The property is across the street from the lake with views from the back deck. We traveled the week after Labor Day and found the beach fairly empty, which was great. It was a short walk into South Haven, which is a cute town. Once we arrived we didn't use the car once.

The property was great. Marta added nice touches to the point that everyone in our party wanted to give their own 5 star reviews. House had plenty of space for the kids. Beds were hotel quality. There were condiments, spices and everything we needed for cooking. Our friends forgot to bring a pack n' play for their daughter to sleep in and there was even one of those. Marta was very responsive when we had a question and even drove 20 minutes to help us with something at 10 PM. Last, but not least, she refunded our security deposit the same day we checked out and in full.

If you are traveling with another couple and want to unwind, this is a great place to do it!

Cute, charming, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a cute place!! We felt comfortable right away. The attention to detail was amazing. We have visited South Haven for many summers and this 'cottage' was one of the best. From the luxurious linens to the unexpected gift basket..Marta thought of it all. Loved it so much we booked it for next summer before we left. The location to beach and downtown was perfect. Walking and biking very doable. Didn't want our stay to end.

Great South Haven 2 bedroom cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this property. We had stayed there before under prior owners and knew we would love the location right across from the beach and a short walk to town. Marta has made some very nice improvements. The second bathroom is a great addition as well as the nice deck, bikes, beach chairs. Perfect spot for a group of four! Highly recommend it!
