About kelly hansen

We are a family of four living in Howell, Michigan in the Detroit suburbs. My husband, Jeff, is a financial planner and I own an interior design firm. Jeff and I like to restore old homes and buildings. Our offices are located in a fully restored, three story Victorian building in Downtown Howell. We love to ride our bikes. We have taken our tandems all over North America. We have a tandem for the boys and a tandem for the girls. We originally came to Three Oaks for the cycling, wineries and Lake Michigan. My children are now 15 and 17 and they helped us with the restoration of the vacation home which took 12 months to complete. They also like the in town location because it gives them a little freedom-- they can play at two nearby parks. They also enjoy the library, pharmacy and ice cream shops; all of which are a two block walk from the cottage. Now that we have a vacation home in Harbor Country we hope to enjoy the beautiful area year round and share it with family and guests.

Why kelly hansen chose Southwest

We chose this property because we have always loved Tudors. We were looking for a home that we could restore (it needed a lot of work). We also wanted a home that we could potentially move into in the future...this one had a main floor master, full basement and garage which is usual for older homes. We were also attracted to the pool and great location in the village.

Absolutely amazing place to visit! The English tudor is a home away from home! Amazing weekend getaway or stay a whole week. Never wanted to leave. Kelly is a wonderful host and always makes sure you have what you need. Perfect to stay any time of the year.

The home has been beautifully redone. Perfect size for our group of 10!

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was well stocked, decor was polished and clean. The rental is "pet friendly" and while we didn't have a pet with us, my cat allergies (mild) were acting up even though the house was very clean. The owner was accommodating to the point of opening the pool a week early for us to enjoy. The only issue we had was "critter sounds" trying to nest in the attic/fireplace. Contacted the owner who began trying to resolve the issue immediately. The location of the home is perfect for walking downtown to the journeyman distillery restaurant, or to enjoy an evening at the acorn theater as we did. Also only a 10 minute drive to New Buffalo.

Perfect Girl's Weekend Destination

  • 5 of 5

The English Cottage was everything the pictures and description lead us to believe, but even better. It was plenty of room for 10 people and we had so much fun in Three Oaks! Kelly is a great host and is quick to answer any of your questions! I will definitely be staying here again and recommending to my friends!

What a great choice!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughter's wedding at the Journeyman Distillery and we could not have picked a better home to rent for the weekend. Not only is the home spacious and beautifully appointed, it is so comfortable it's like being in your own home. Every aspect of renting the house was made easy - Kelly answered any questions we had very promptly and made us feel so welcome. I can't say enough about the town - every business we dealt with had employees that were so friendly and professional. It was a wonderful weekend made even more wonderful by the ease of renting and the comfort of this wonderful home. If you are looking for a home away from home to get away I would highly recommend this property.

Centrally located in heart of Harbor Country. . .just east of New Buffalo and South of Sawyer. We are a short drive from several beautiful Lake Michigan beaches and state parks. We are located just a few blocks from the cycling and wine trails. We are walking distance to the attractions in the village of Three Oaks.
