ESCAPE TO NATURE, A GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND AND RELAX

South Haven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Wooded Surrounding And A Short Walk To Lake Michigan

Located in a Lake Michigan community known as Glenn Shores, you'll enjoy all the best nature has to offer. You can take a leisurely stroll to the association steps where you'll find access to miles of Lake Michigan beach. You also have the option of a second association access point where you can drive right down to the beach with all your picnic supplies to enjoy a day at the beach. Spend the day relaxing along the shore while listening to the crashing waves and squishing your toes in the sand. Splash in the clear waters of Lake Michigan, search for sea glass, or, in the evenings, take in all the beauty of a Michigan sunset. This area of the coast is truly something special.

When you’re at the cottage you’ll be able to enjoy all the luxuries of home. The open concept offers a main room that includes the kitchen, dining area and living room all combined so your always close to the ones you love. This room offers 2 story ceilings and dual sliders onto a spacious deck. The kitchen was recently upgraded with stainless steel appliances. Another feature of the main room is a wood burning fireplace.

On the main level, you’ll find 2 bedrooms, one with a full bed, and the other with bunk beds that include a full bed and twin. The master bedroom suite located on the second floor has a king bed and full bathroom.

One of the favorite features of the cottage is the huge deck. It’s a great place to enjoy a relaxing morning coffee while listening to the sound a nature. Entertain the entire family and enjoy lunch or dinner on the deck. It’s not uncommon to catch a glimpse of some wildlife... deer, birds, squirrels and more will all be part of the relaxing atmosphere.

The property features a wonderful fire pit area where you can enjoy your evenings roasting hot dogs or marshmallows over the open flames.

This is truly an amazing area to enjoy a relaxing escape from the business of everyday life.

I grew up in West Michigan and spend the majority of my life in the area. I am a business owner and I spend my time traveling between my homes in Michigan and Florida.

Rod purchased this cottage in 1999

I've always enjoyed the beaches along Lake Michigan. When I decided to purchase a summer home I spend months checking out different communities on my free weekends. In the fall of 1998 I stumbled across a vacant lot in Glenn Shores and the rest is history. I built this as my summer home and moved in July of 1999, during the summer of 2009 I moved in and made it my year around home. Glenn Shores is a wonderful community, I have wonderful neighbors and have made some lifelong friends. My two girls now 17 & 22, spend countless hours on the beach and at the cottage, we made memories that will last a lifetime.

Glenn Shores is located between South Haven & Saugatuck Michigan, it's roughly a 7 mile drive to either city. Whether you are looking for a peaceful community to chill and relax, or if you are more of the social type, you can find it near Glenn Shores. Feel free to ask me questions about the community or what to do.

Amazing Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This property was a great stay for a week with two young children. We had company most days, which the bedrooms accomadated well.

The drive down to the gated, private beach was very short, and worked well for transporting the kids, toys and coolers. The light crowd at the beach was very friendly, and a good mix of owners and renters.

The highlight of the house is the incredible outdoor space. Lots of shade, a great fire pit, nice lawn, and very large deck. The natural gas Weber grill was a breeze to cook on.

Both South Haven and Suagutuck were short drives with lots of additonal activities, but there's no real need to leave. Stock up on groceries at the new SoHa Meijer, fill in when needed from the Glenn store. Then, spend your days at the beautiful beach and evenings relaxing on the spacious deck.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from our trip and were very pleased with our stay at this home. We were 3 young adult couples who were just looking for a relaxing weekend getaway. The house is exactly as the pictures depict. It was clean and comfortable. We spent our evenings grilling and hanging out on the beautiful patio and made nightly bonfires in the fire pit. We brought our own food to grill but the kitchen was stocked with the necessary supplies. While the house is a little off the beaten path, it was an easy drive in to Holland where we rented a boat and got a bite to eat and to South Haven where we went to the public beach. We also walked down to the private local beach, which was quiet and peaceful. The homeowner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with, always quick to get back with any answers to our questions and suggestions of things to do in the area. We would definitely recommend this house to others who are looking for a vacation near beautiful Lake Michigan.
