COUNTRY COTTAGE ON THE SUNSET SIDE OF LAKE MICHIGAN. PETS WELCOME!

Lakeside Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4-6)

Country cottage on the sunset side of Lake Michigan, less than a block from a wide sandy homeowners' association beach (no prohibition on pets, alcohol or fires as are found at township beaches). The cottage sleeps up to six surrounded in gracious linens and country charm. Spend the summer days swimming, sunning, or strolling along the shore, or head for antique shops, wineries, galleries in Three Oaks or nearby state parks. Visit our local butcher shop, fruit stands and bakery for a home-made feast or go to the Red Arrow Roadhouse, Blue Plate Cafe or Oink's for fun and casual dining. Or, maybe just relax in the shade on the huge screened porch---and do nothing. We still have a few great weeks left this summer!

Open year round, there is always a good time at Harbor Country Cottages.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
Guestbook comments from the owner
This is our fourth time in the yellow cottage and it certainly feels like home to us and the pups. Very relaxing! We built a fire each cool evening and enjoyed our morning walks along the beach. Thank you for the long weekend--we will certainly be back!

GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Rented both cottages for a party of five adults and a young child. Really lovely, just as described. Bathrooms could use a little updating but otherwise quite nice, and a very quick walk to the private beach. Also easy walk to Blue Plate Cafe for breakfast or lunch, and short drive to wineries, parks, antiques and more. Highly recommend. NOTE: if you are only renting one cottage try for the blue one. There was a boisterous large family next to the yellow cottage, where the pool and deck are VERY close to the cottage. A little noisy at times.

COULDN'T WIPE THE SMILE OFF MY FACE!

Couldn't wipe the smile off my face!
  • 5 of 5
I literally could not stop smiling from the moment we walked into the cottage. I felt so peaceful and so at home. This was a girls' weekend and we had so much fun I didn't even wait; While I was still there, I booked a week long getaway next Summer for my husband and our dog! The beach was just across the lane, and you could walk there in 2 minutes tops. The beach was pristine. I've never seen a cleaner beach. If you're looking for happiness, book the Cottage Provencal (blue cottage). There was a Swiss Bakery close by full of too many pastries, bread and goodies to list. They were delicious! We visited Sawyer Garden Center, which was stocked full of unique gifts and all the fresh, Christmas greenery you could ever want. A well~stocked grocery was also very close. It is not the small convenient store one would expect in a small communtiy, but had a very nice variety and many specialty items if you wanted to prepare a fine meal during your visit. The cottage has a full kitchen and an outdoor grill, so casual or not, you're set there, too. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linens were top notch. Another review mentioned the DVD and book collections. There was a great variety of both and I was told by the owner that they rotate their selection. I did not connect to the internet, but it was available. My friend used her laptop and had no problem. You could really tell that every detail was taken into consideration for your stay. I wanted for nothing. I can hardly wait for next Summer, so I can share the joy with my family. The Cottage (yellow one) next door is a mirror image to the Cottage Provencal (blue one), so if you want to bring a larger group, I suggest booking both. I'm already planning on a bigger family vacation instead of the Gulf Shores. Absolutely loved this place!

OCTOBER BREAK

  • 5 of 5
WOW what a wonderful cottage! We all had a great time and will go back again next October if not sooner. Everything from the enclosed porch to the fully equipped kitchen was just wonderful. The cottage is private, close to the beach and just what we thought we wanted for our week away. We could not ask for more! Thanks for a great time. Hannah our sweet black lab just loved not only the beach but the coziness of the cottage. We thought she looked sad when we were ready to leave@

CHICAGO DEB- BEST PLACE IN LAKESIDE

  • 5 of 5
I love Lakeside but it can be hit or miss when it comes to rentals-- but that this house! Couldn't ask for a better location, nicer house and best owner-ever. I had my best friend come from North Carolina to visit for Memorial Day and we had the most relaxing and best-ever long weekend. ( And actually she is coming back up for Labor Day as we are going back again we loved it so much!) I stayed for the remainder of the week and was in a heaven-like state of de-stress and comfort.

The house is spotless, fully equipped, lovely, well decorated and SO COMFORTABLE! You walk in the front door and sigh saying to yourself-- "yes, this is going to be great!" Beach is literally 2 minutes away and is what you would expect on Lake Michigan-- pristine, quiet, clean, relaxing.

There are lots of things to do (or not do!) including antiquing , wine tasting and more. I love going to Sawyer to the market and getting the most amazing steaks and produce which then you can grill in the back yard and eat an amazing meal on the patio. And of course, if you love breakfast, walk down the road to Blue Plate and pig out on eggs and bacon!

As an east coast transplant to Chicago, this is better than the Hamptons. A quick drive from downtown takes you to what I consider one of the best places ever. And of course, this house is part of the amazing, relaxing and welcoming and integral part of the trip.

Kudos and can't wait to go back!!!!

RELAXING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Shawn, your lovely cottage made our anniversary weekend so enjoyable for my husband and I. The Cotswold was the perfect size for us and our two college-age daughters who joined us for the vow renewal at sunset on the beach. The beds were comfy and the little yellow cottage had everything we needed. We really got a kick out of our old jack russell who decided to go for a swim, it was so nice to have her with us. The wineries were just down the road and we liked the brewery tasting at the Round Barn as well. Also enjoyed meals at the Stray Dog, Rios (best quesadillas), Michigan Thyme, & The Red Arrow Roadhouse. Thank you for renting us the Cotswold and helping our family make more memories. We'll be back!
