About kelly hansen

We are a family of four (and one black lab) living in Howell, Michigan in the Detroit suburbs.

My husband, Jeff, is a financial planner and I own an interior design firm. Jeff and I like to restore old homes and buildings. Our offices are located in a fully restored, three story Victorian building in Downtown Howell.

We love to ride our bikes. We have taken our tandems all over North America. We have a tandem for the boys and a tandem for the girls. We originally came to Three Oaks for the cycling, wineries and Lake Michigan.

My children are now 11 and 13 and they helped us with the restoration of the vacation home which took 14 months to complete. They also like the in town location because it gives them a little freedom-- they can play at two nearby parks. They also enjoy the library, pharmacy and ice cream shops; all of which are a two block walk from the cottage.

Now that we have a vacation home in Harbor Country we hope to enjoy the beautiful area year round and share it with family and guests.

kelly hansen purchased this house in 2009

Why kelly hansen chose Three Oaks

We had been renting in Three Oaks for almost ten years before we finally decided to buy our own vacation home.

We love the area for its beauty -- especially the Lake Michigan shoreline and the wineries. We are cycling enthusiasts and the roads in Berrien County are a cyclists dream - safe, scenic and well marked.

We purchased the home on Cedar Street because my husband and I restore historic properties and we loved the in-town location of this charming home.

What makes this house unique

I think our visitors will enjoy the home itself- it is in great shape and the decor is cheerful and a little quirky. The location is a bonus for those who like to stroll the antique shops, restaurants and theatres of Three Oaks - leave the car behind!

Hop on your bike and tour all of Harbor Country - we've provided the cycling maps for you.

Take a scenic drive out to one of the wineries. We love late summer and early fall for trips out to the farms and vineyards.

Two of our favorite beaches are the Warren Dunes State Park and the New Buffalo City Beach. At Warren Dunes challenge your family to climb the Tower Hill sand dune. We do it once a year and the views are worth it! Or have dinner in New Buffalo and walk to the city beach - check out the yachts or watch the sunset as you take an evening dip. The water is beautiful.

Awesome, relaxing comfort of home

  • 5 of 5
We were attending a game at Notre Dame and wanted a comfortable place to stay while in the area. This property was awesome! The home is so cozy and we felt right at home. It was easy to find and an easy drive from South Bend at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this for anyone planning a stay in the area.

Great 3BR+ in Harbor Country

  • 5 of 5
Three adults and two children were very comfortable in this gracious and fun house. Plenty of amenities for kids and adults: well appointed kitchen with fantastic stove, big yard, fantastic interior design, fast internet, and close to lots of Harbor Country attractions. 15 minutes from New Buffalo beach.

We're bicyclists and enjoyed the nearby bike routes. Our kids loved the proximity of Three Oaks Elementary school playground, Dinges farm, and the ice cream shop within walking distance. Our 6 year old loved the lofted room, which is really a fourth bedroom.

Owners were communicative and gave great info before and after booking.

Highly recommend. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Fun for Everyone!

  • 5 of 5
This home was recommended by friends. There were 4 adults and 4 kids, ages 4, 8 and two 12 year olds, who stayed in the house. The kids all LOVED the loft room and had a blast in the big yard playing croquet, hide and seek, etc. The house was wonderful! Very clean, great decor and a three seasons room that was great for enjoying morning coffee. The location was perfect, only 10 - 15 minutes from a varitey of activites, all located off the Red Arrow Highway. We enjoyed Lake Michigan, the beaches and sand dunes. We kayaked on the Galien River, rented bicycles and even went blueberry picking. Three Oaks is a great town. The adults enjoyed a tasting at the Journeyman Distillery, fine dining and shopping. We also ate great pizza from Giorgettis which is recommended on urbanspoon.com. Froehlichs is a cool foodie market with great coffee.

Our daughters wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter was married at Fernwood botanical garden and arboretum in Niles and the reception was held at the Journeyman distillery. This lovely cottage was perfect location for us and accommodated our family of 4 adult children with spouses, 1 grandson and my husband and myself! The owner Kelly was great to work with and went out of her way to help make our stay worry free knowing it was such a special occasion! The property allowed us to have an outdoor brunch and play yard games the day after the wedding. The sun porch was wonderful for our morning coffee and chit chat We enjoyed spending family time together and took side trips to the beach, warren dunes state park, farm marks and small towns the days after the wedding . Greenbush brewery in Sawyer and Pleasant House In Three Oaks were two of our favorite eating spots! also picked up some excellent meats at Driers butcher in Three Oaks!

It is unanimous, the whole family loves this adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of seven loves staying at the cottage and our three young boys talk about the cool "fort room" year round. Our teenage girls love the fact that they get their own room that the boys love their room so much that they leave them alone.

There is something for everyone, and this year, I found a new yoga studio in Downtown Three Oaks for an early morning class before we hit the beach for a day of stand up paddle boarding, rented affordably right on the beach (an added bonus).

The location is amazing -- close to the a nice outlet mall (Michigan City, IN), beaches, restaurants and a short train ride into Chicago for a day of big city fun. This year, we made the trip to catch a Cub's game and celebrate Wrigley Field's 100th Birthday.

Twice a week, there is a local Farmer's Market, so make sure to check when it is open during your visit, you will be sad to miss it.
