The perfect spring getaway

Henkel Cottage was the perfect place for our two-family spring getaway. We were five adults, one tween, three kids, and a baby, and everyone loved it. The house is beautiful, thoughtfully and extensively stocked--we overpacked because we hadn't expected so much to be there in the house. The yard is lovely; the kids enjoyed the swingset and running around, and we all had a good time around the firepit and having a grilled lunch on the patio. The beach is within easy walking distance, even with small children, and South Haven's downtown is charming. (My only regret there is no real grocery store other than Wal-Mart. Bring groceries! Or just go to Maria's, and definitely try the gelato.) The owners were marvelously helpful and communicative; I never had a worry about the business details and knew exactly what was expected on both sides. Go to Henkel Cottage if you can! Just not on the weekend I want to go back. :)
Owner's Response: A great family that we would enjoy having back! A heartwarming story to hear of their Easter egg hunt. The egg hunt was a "first" at the Henkel Cottage. We are all looking forward to the new Meijer grocery store that has been recently announced. We also enjoy the top notch service at the Village Market. Thanks for your input!
