Thank you Michael, for a wonderful week at Shores Club Cottage. The accomodations were wonderful and so well appointed for our famly reunion. Beds and pillows are comfy , so necessary for a good R & R. We so enjoyed the spacious kitchen and ample room to prepare. The best part was being able to sit all 13 adults around one table. Even better to have 14 adirondack chairs for susnsets on the deck. We'll be back... Paula & Michael

Perfect Place on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Shores Club Cottage last weekend. The weather was gorgeous. The house accommodated our large crew fabulously and we loved all the different spaces to gather. Though we spent most of our time on the deck. Thank you for making our weekend so memorable as we celebrated the 94th birthday of our family patriarch.

o'connor's place

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented the Lake Michigan Shores Club Cottage for the last two consecutive years, and we plan to stay again. This is a place with a lot of room, and if you have three children and their spouses and all of their children, you'll need every inch of it. The cottage is very well cared for and has all the amenities--five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two kitchen sinks and two dishwashers, the private sandy beach is a five-minute walk away and you are half-way between South Haven and Saugatuck. The front yard is big enough for bocci, baseball, football and tag. The back yard is for grilling, cocktails if you can fit them in, and absolutely killer sunsets. This is a very, very nice private place to stay. Our request for baby cribs was taken care of without a hassle (and, when we left behind a cherished baby quilt, they found it asap and mailed it to us right away). The owners are polite, understanding and very responsive to suggestions as to cottage improvements. The rental is not cheap, but if you can afford it this is the place you've been looking for. It will knock your socks off.

A Lucky Find!

  • 5 of 5

Our glorious week at the charming Shores Club Cottage was nothing short of perfection! Outdoors, we soaked up the spectacular views from the spacious deck and witnessed some of Mother Nature's finest. We also took many walks on the beach, biked and kayaked, lounged and thoroughly relaxed under the sun, moon, and stars. Indoors we enjoyed the variety of sitting rooms for relaxation and conversation, communed in the kitchen and dining area, and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of this historic cottage. Our group intends to return to this cottage again and again for many years to come. A heartfelt "Thank You" goes out to the owner Michael for his prompt and friendly service and hospitality. We feel very lucky to have found this special place!

Just the ticket

  • 5 of 5

This large, beautiful, and homey cottage was everything we hoped for. Its five, tasteful bedrooms accommodated our burgeoning family, including six small grandchildren. We like to cook, and the kitchen, with its great stove, two sinks and two dishwashers served all of our practical needs. The second floor deck offers stunning views of Lake Michigan. And with such a crowd, we were glad the bathrooms were designed to be used by more than one person at a time. The beach was clean and accessible--only a short walk down the road. It provided a perfect respite for beleaguered young parents and a delightful adventure for the little ones. We found Michael to be professional, honest, and responsive to our requests. All in all, we loved it, and we want to return to Lake Michigan Shores Club Cottage.

House was great and had a beautiful view of Lake Michigan from a second story living room and deck. The association beach was clean and not crowded. The owner was very helpful. My family and friends had a wonderful time. There are lots of farms in the area for produce, ice cream and berry picking, Saugatuck and Holland are not far either.
