There is no Negatives about this great get away cottage....I have visited it a few time and each time it gets more enjoyable.....I actually Miss it and try to find reasons to stay there again.... From going to Notre Damn
games to Family holidays.... I would really recommend this vacation rental for anyone who just wants daily rest on the beach to great small unique shopping or even my favorite, long exploration drive to see the site and maybe a quick trip up the coast to visit st. joseph, douglas, or Saugatuck...

Wonderful Autumn Weekend!

We just enjoyed a wonderfully romantic three-day weekend at Serendipity House and my husband and I loved every minute of it! I was a little skeptical about all the high praise of the other review but have to say, it was completely accurate.

John and I had a lovely, lovely time. The house was very clean, spacious and comfortable. It's close to restaurants, shops and galleries, and the beautiful beach. Yet with the large gardens, the house is also very private.

The window seat in the breakfast nook, the large (but still very cozy) family room, and the dinner table in the garden were my three favorite places at this perfect cottage.

We would highly recommend this Serendipity House for either a getaway weekend for adults or for a family vacation. There's lots to see and explore in the area.

This is a very well attended to property. With gardens surrounding the front entrances, walkways and large back patio. It was hard to count the varities of flowers in bloom.

Nice front room with fireplace unit for lounging and relaxing, spacious dining room and quite adaquatly sized kitchen. The kitchen also has a breakfast nook on one side surrounded by windows overlooking the gardens. The kitchen's back side has a pass through window exposing a large screaned in porch which will accomodate up to 8-10 for dining or family fun.
Two bedrooms master with queen and full but rather small bath, and bedroom with three trundle beds and full sm bath.
Our favorite room is the vaulted window surrounded back room. Perfect for relaxing under the fan with you favorite book or just enjoying a glowing fire. (pull -out couch and desk too)
We bar-b-que often and found the candle lit back porch a great place for hanging out with friends and family over a cold beer.
It is approx two blocks to the beach up the road and across the street. Just a stones throw, not a problem but wear your flip flops you will cross the road.

Local eateries are not far and offer a good variety.

All in all if you looking for the perverbial cozy cabin spot near the lake, "serendipity" fits the bill well.

Better Homes and Gardens did a piece on this house a while back for good reason. The gardens are plentyfull and the home is better than most.
