About Marta Petter

I have an upscale historic house I remodeled and rent in Saugatuck - vrbo.com/444711 and used to live in South Haven so found this wonderful gem across from Packard Park and have remodeled it for upscale rental.

Marta Petter purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Marta Petter chose Southwest

The location and setting is stellar.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has plenty of windows, separate bedroom and open concept living, dining kitchen and then a nice patio and view of lake and 300 feet of sandy beach just across the street. Great beach walking, sun bathing, swimming, sunsets and all a quick stroll to downtown South Haven. Catalpa trees all around the property too! Private parking too.

My husband and I have stayed at a few B&B's in South Haven, but thought we would try something different. We were used to paying $225-$250 per night @ the B&B and all we got was breakfast and a nice room. For $175 a night, we got the most quaint and adorable cottage just ONE block off the beach. Every thing we needed was provided for us...bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, linens, kitchen supplies, gas grill, etc. The cottage was literally just across the street from the beach. All we had to do is walk out our front door, cross the street and settle in for a fun and relaxing day on the beach. When we need to refresh, we headed back to the cottage and made us a great lunch with the gas grill that was waiting for us on our patio. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, silverware and cookware. After a day at the beach, we hopped on our bikes and ventured into town which was just a few blocks away. The cottage was extremly clean and well cared for. The owner had a nice gift basket waiting for us upon our arrival with wine, cheese, and coffee. We needed nothing else to ensure we had a great time enjoying each other.

Perfect Getaway Spot!

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong staying at Marta's cottage. Not only does it offer all the comforts of home, but Marta goes the extra mile to be certain you're comfortable and pampered. The cottage's King size bed is most comfortable and the sitting area outside the backdoor is perfect for morning coffee or cocktails and munchies after fun at the beach which is just a very short walk across the street. We will be sure to visit again!

Beautful property and great location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Marta's property for a quick mid-week getaway in the middle of a Midwest tour. We are from Texas, but are currently living overseas and wanted to enjoy some relaxing beach time in between busy weekends with friends and family in Kalamazoo & Chicago. Marta was super sweet and patient with us through a possible schedule change (we ended up keeping our original itinerary). The cottage is very clean and has all the amenities you would need for a trip to the beach. Our 2 only complaints are that the living room furniture wasn't very comfortable for chilling out after the sun goes down and while we loved water pressure in the shower, the way the actual shower head sprayed was a bit abrasive. Even with these two minor things, the location can't be beat and we would likely stay here again! We had a lovely view of the sunset over the lake and enjoyed long walks on the beach...it was exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries before heading to Chicago.

Cozy and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Though the unit it small, it's clean and well appointed. It's on the north side of the river, so a little less crowded, but still close to the beach and downtown. The owner is attentive and flexible.
