My family and I loved the property. We spent time on the beach, explored Holland Michigan and Amish Acres. Very clean well maintained by Two Lovely Owners. We had to make a last minute booking but we're very pleased that I found this charming apartment and Wonderful owners xx

The best little cottage we've ever stayed at!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was by far the best we've rented!!! It had absolutely everything you could need or want and the owners (Norm and Lynn) were just incredible!! Very, very sweet, helpful and fun to talk to!! We enjoyed our stay tremendously as it was up the hill and a very short walking distance to the endless and beautiful beach!! We also walked to the zoo which was a very short distance and enjoyed the casino which was a 1.4 mile car drive away. Such a gorgeous area this darling cottage is at with large oak trees and a very peaceful and quiet street. The cottage is roomy and perfect as the two of us enjoyed it so much! We are planning on returning as soon as we can to chat with Norm and Lynn and enjoy their beautiful little place! The pictures and description are great but don't do this cottage justice as it's so much more in person!! Thank you Norm and Lynn for such a wonderful trip!!! We'll be back soon!!!!

Wonderful cottage and Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable with everything we needed. Our dog Murphy loved it too and the owners loved him. They are very accommodating

and make you feel at home. When visiting Michigan City in the future this is the place we will always stay. Thank you Lynn and Norm

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We came to the cottage during a family health emergency and despite our reasons for being there we were able to find fun and enjoyment as well. Norm and Lynn are amazing hosts and the photos here on the site don't do the cottage justice. We had everything we needed during our week-long stay and were even able to host a family picnic for 15 on the property. The walk to the beach is short (the steps will definitely give you a workout) and our dog, Scallywag, felt right at home. We would recommend the cottage to anyone looking to stay I. Michigan City.

Such a Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My 2-year-old son and I had an amazing stay there. The homeowners are so kind and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable (even borrowed some age-appropriate picture books for my son to read while there!) My son calls it "the Michigan House" and we can't wait to go back. It's an easy walk to the beach, walking distance to the zoo, and the house is very clean. We felt totally comfortable there. A much needed vacation in a great place!
