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.

About Rod

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

Why Rod chose South Haven

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Excellent , well equipped clean home

  • 5 of 5
The house has all the comforts of home and is exceptionally clean. He even has wifi and netflix on the TV set up, which made life easier for me and my kids. The fire pit out back is also excellent-one of the best I've seen. The only negative is getting to the beach is a process...either 100 stairs following a short walk (.2 miles away) or a half mile walk/drive down a road to the beach with a locked gate. The road is easier on the legs and opens to a better (beautiful!) beach. However it was difficult for my small children and older parents to navigate the terrain there as you are essentially walking down an old, broken up boat ramp. If you are handicapped, or simply not agile...take the 10 minute drive south the public beach in south haven....which is one of the nicest public beaches in the US. Rod was an excellent host...we will be back!

Amazing customer service and beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5
I had decided to take a last minute vacation with my family less than 24 hours before my arrival time. I sent an e-mail to the owner and he was super quick to respond. He also responded very quickly while were there with a quick question. His customer service is GREAT! The house was just the right size, clean, well equipped and at a great location! The neighborhood of Glenn Shores is absolutely beautiful, the beach is great and the neighbors are friendly. There is also a good mix of renters and owners. Also a quick drive to Saugatuck and other area attractions. We had a great time, thanks Rod for sharing your house with us!
