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. Happy to help you experience all that South Haven has to offer! Charter fishing, massage therapy, wine tasting, golf, special events and much more!

Laurel Henkel purchased this house in 2004

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.

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.

Amazing Fall Destination

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
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!

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
  • Submitted: Nov 11, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
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!
