About the property

Beach, no steps, Central HVAC,Great views and amenities

This was already a fabulous 2 bedroom cottage but I have remodeled it to make it a gem! It is located across from Packard Park beach with 300 feet of sandy beach.

This 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 West to enjoy breakfast or cocktails. Living room has 3 Kindle love seats for U shaped lounging. There is Comcast digital TV and WIFI. There are 2 dining areas, an antique table with 4-6 chair and a high top table facing the lake with 6 chairs. Great for workspace too.

Kitchen with Dishwasher, disposal, gas stove, microwave, refrigerator with ice maker 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.

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

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

his is part of a larger complex with Main 5bed/5-1/2 bath house and a 1 bedroom cottage next door. The property has been landscaped and designed for individual living spaces/privacy.

Why Marta Petter chose South Haven

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.

Easy Access and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Property is in a wonderful location. Beds are very comfortable. Living room is inviting and perfect for 4-6 friends to hang out. Two places to eat and play cards or games. Fireplace is easy to start. The deck has chairs, table, and a grill. Downtown is a short walk away. Very nice beach across the street. Can bike easily to the bike trails.

Marta communicated often, and the place was easy to find and get into. She also left us a bunch of treats and a bottle of wine! Nice touch!

Wonderful time in a peaceful place.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. It was a perfect get away for two. The treats Marta left for us like wine, dip and chips were extra special. Every detail was tended to and we had everything we needed. It's location to the beach and downtown made walking excursions very pleasant.

Fantastic Well Kept Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for a week in June. The house is exceptionally well kept and clean, and very modern considering the age of these beach cottages in South Haven. The AC worked great and was a fantastic plus in the hot humid weather. The owner is very easy to work with and promptly replies to all texts and emails. She even made sure to prioritize getting our unit cleaned and ready for an early check in because we were coming with 3 babies. There was also a sweet goodie basket waiting for us with a variety of treats. We will absolutely stay again when we return to SH and have already recommended the location to friends and family visiting the area.
