Lovely small cottage for extra guest, or as my husband likes to call it A perfect cottage for Grandpa and Grandma !
The location of our property is on a 1/2 mile private drive off of Blue Star Hwy. When you are on I 96 which goes North and South close to Lake Michigan, you will exit on # 26 which is called the Pullman road/ 109th, turn to the west and go to the T in the road which is Blue Star or Adams RD. turn to the north and go .09 of a mile, which brings you to our drive Lake Michigan Ave. This drive is gravel 1/2 mile with a sign for the cottage go straight in through the pine trees. There is another drive next to ours called Deer Valley, Do Not use this drive as it will not come to our cottage.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband and I purchased the cottage in 2004, which is located next to our home. We have made many renovations, and kept the cottage in excellent condition, we put in a new kitchen window and slider in the bedroom. The interior was given a fresh coat of paint. We enjoy meeting our renters from Italy, England, Canada, and many of the states and would love to make your acquaintance.
Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
We have lived in our home on Lake Michigan Bluff for 28 years. Living here is a beautiful experience regardless of the weather. We have watched many amazing sunsets as well as the strong storms. The cottage property joins our home property. We felt we wanted a place for people to come and experience the beautiful lake, the serenity of the location, and most of all the beach. We are open for seasonal renters during the spring, summer and fall months, and would like a long term renter for the winter.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Serenity Sunset Cottage is a peaceful, relaxing place for any family, we encourage families to rent this property and if there are parents, grandparents or friends there is our little cottage which sleeps 2 right on the same property. Please see our VRBO # 287864 for the small cottage.
