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.


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.

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We visited the English Tudor house last week with another family (4 adults and 3 kids total) and had a wonderful time! We normally stay just outside Sawyer for a week each summer, but chose Three Oaks this year and enjoyed being able to walk downtown to Journeyman or to get ice cream for the kids. We were able to fit trips to all of our favorite local spots in Sawyer and Bridgman, as well as a day at Warren Dunes and a day-trip to Chicago. The pool is a real draw for the kids - I think they spent about four hours each day swimming, and the adults joined them for much of it! The home itself is beautifully decorated and fairly well-appointed. Best of all, Kelly is an incredibly responsive host and processed our deposit refund within only a couple hours of our departure! We highly recommend this home for a relaxing but fun week in Southwest Michigan!

Perfect family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Impressive vacation home with all the items you need to make you feel "at home". Home was clean, roomy, and full of entertainment opportunities. The heated pool was a hit with the four grandkids; yard was fenced; gas grill and outside eating area were a bonus; board and yard games were a nice touch; beds were comfortable; two eating spaces were convenient; kitchen utensils and bedding linens were plentiful, and the availability of washer/dryer was helpful. Owner was easily accessible and answered early questions. Three Oaks was a short distance from beaches, restaurants, and retail. Local shops, parks, walking trails, library, and restaurants were charming and could have provided enough entertainment for the week. Bike trails were an added bonus! I would not hesitate in recommending this home and area for a great get-away!

Completely adorable!

  • 5 of 5

My family met from all over, to celebrate our parents 40th Anniversary at Lake Michigan. The cottage was a short 10 min drive from the lake. It accommodated us all perfectly! The kids were able to run around and play, while the adults had their own spot to sit and chat. The pool was the perfect touch, we used it every day, especially on days too chilly for the lake. Kelly, the owner, was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and the actual vacation. I highly recommend this rental.
