About Laurel Henkel

We are a family of 5 and have enjoyed South Haven for over a decade. We pride ourselves on offering beautiful rental homes and provide honest, friendly service. We have created great family memories there and are happy to help your friends & family do the same!

Laurel Henkel purchased this house in 2004

Why Laurel Henkel chose South Haven

We love the pace of life and friendly people in South Haven. Hanging out at the beach, visiting downtown, watching boats float along the Black River, or simply taking in a beautiful Lake Michigan sunset makes for a great vacation.

What makes this house unique

The Henkel Cottage has many special touches. Heated outdoor shower, slate fire pit, patio dining for 10, beach equipment and much more. North Shore Dr. and beach are within walking distance. Great place to make special memories with family & friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best place to stay in South Haven

  • 5 of 5
The Henkel Cottage is one of the most unique places to stay in South Haven. Our family highly recommends it. We've been going to this cottage for 4 years straight. Here's why: 1) It's located on a quiet retreat-like street only a few steps from the beach; 2) Henkel's treat us like their own family. House is always clean and everything we need is already on-site. 3) We've never found a house we liked better. 4) You can get anywhere you want to go in SoHa in 3 minutes. Retreat back to the cottage when you're done shopping.

Each time we stay here we like it more (I didn't want to write this review. It's so good I'd like to keep a secret.)

Owner's Response: The best part of sharing our South Haven home with others is the friendly people we meet along the way. The Henkel Cottage is located on a wooded street that helps guests feel like they are "getting away" from the tasks of daily life. As a family of 5, we understand the needs of a vacationing family and strive to provide an exceptionally clean, well-stocked home.

Amazing Fall Destination

  • 5 of 5
The Henkel Cottage is not only as wonderful as advertised, but even better. I stayed there for a four day weekend with my 2 sisters and mother and we all had a wonderful time. The location is perfect - a short walk to the beautiful Lake Michigan coast. But even if you choose to spend your whole time in the cottage - the many trees surrounding the property give it such a tranquil feel. Near-by South Haven was perfect for eating and shopping. And the farmer's market was a great way to spend a relaxing Saturday morning. The owners were great about giving restaurant recommendations and in answering every question. We especially loved Clementine's restaurant! Thanks for sharing your loving cottage with us!

Owner's Response: Fall is a very fun time in South Haven. For those new to the area, the Henkel Cottage is located 1 mile north of the Dyckman bridge. The First St. beach access is approximately a 2-3 minute walk from the front porch. We are happy to help families make arrangements for special outings, birthday cakes, etc. We enjoy helping others create memories to last a lifetime.

Another perfect stay at the Henkel Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time that my friends and I have rented this house for our annual beach vacation, but the third time that I have rented the home (with another rental already booked for November!). The house is absolutely beautiful...there is not a single thing missing. It is stocked wonderfully with everything you could ever think of (how fun for us to discover we could make quesadillas with their quesadilla maker!) and is so comfortable. The walk to the beach is so simple, and that Lake Michigan view can't be beat. Working with Tom and Laurel is always a job...easy as can be, totally trustworthy, and easy to get ahold of. If I ever hear of anyone needing a rental in South Haven, I never hesitate to recommend one of the Henkel properties.

Mother/Daughter Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We just had our second annual Mother/Daughter weekend at the Henkel Cottage!
We were so pleased with the accommodations on our first visit we knew we would be back again! We were able to use the Fall Special with the 3rd night free and it was such a nice bonus. Even though we all could not be there Thursday night we had the cottage available all day Friday for whenever everyone could get there.
The home is very well maintained inside and out. It is tastefully decorated you can't help but feel at home. The kitchen has everything you need to do as much (or as little) cooking you want. All you need are the groceries!
The home is conveniently located just off the highway and so close to town and the beach, with Saugatuck and Wineries not too far away.
Tom and Laurel are a pleasure to work with they have definitely thought of everything to make The Henkel Cottage a great place to stay!

Third Visit!

  • 5 of 5
This was the third year in a row that we've stayed at the Henkel Cottage. We love this house! It is exceptionally clean, well cared for and very comfortable. The Henkels have thought of everything to make their cottage feel like your home-away-from-home. The kitchen is well-stocked, the rooms are freshly decorated and the outdoor space is set up for use by several families. The beach is just a short stroll down the road, made easy by the wagon provided to carry your beach gear. We love the small town feel of South Haven, and especially enjoy eating at Maria's in town, walking along North Shore Drive and along the pier by the river. The owners have been wonderful to work with and when staying in their house, there is a feeling that they truly care about your comfort and enjoyment!

Owner's Response: One of the best things about being an owner is having guests return to your home year after year. We are very honored by the number of groups prefer to return rather than seek a different option. We value customer loyalty and will continue to work hard for your patronage.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I are all teachers, and we stayed at Henkel Cottage this past week for our annual girls trip. The house is AMAZING and far exceeded our expectations. We all commented that we could have lived there all summer! It is so comfortable, beautiful and felt very high-end. The value of this home is unbelievable. The outdoor area was perfect for cookouts, and we love the new fire pit! The beach is steps away from the house, and we took full advantage of it...including the beautiful sunsets. The bedrooms and bathrooms were wonderful, the living room was incredibly comfortable, the kitchen is BEAUTIFUL and stocked with anything and everything you could ever need. We also loved the great DVD collection as well as the games available! Thank you so much, Tom and Laurel, for this beautiful home. We cannot wait to rent from you again next summer.
