About The Owner

My wife and I always dreamed of owning a home in South Haven and in 2007 we found the perfect house for our family. The home is over 100 years old and has many historic features. However, it has been completely gutted and rehabbed so it has the feel of a brand new house. We take tremendous pride in making the house as beautiful as possible both inside and out and you will discover that our home is not your typical vacation rental. I hope that you will bring your family to our home and create many wonderful memories as we do each time we visit South Haven.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Southwest Michigan

The entire west coast of Michigan offers many excellent small towns. However, South Haven has more to offer in terms of restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. Our home is close to the ammenities of downtown plus the beach so it is a perfect fit for us.

What makes this cottage unique

There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the second level of the back deck and watching the boats on the nearby Black River. Also, the close proximaty to the beach and downtown allows you to leave your car in the driveway for the entire vacation.

Perfect beach getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! It was a perfect place for a last minute getaway from Chicago over Memorial Day weekend. The house was open and spacious. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The cute little back porch and yard were perfect for hanging out in the early morning and evenings. It was also in the PERFECT location with easy access to the beach and downtown. We will be returning!

A great rental close to town and beach

  • 5 of 5

We've used homeaway numerous times without issue - and did again for Icebreaker in South Haven. 2 blocks to downtown, 3 blocks to lake access. House well stocked -toilet paper, blankets, towels, etc.. My only real comments are that the pictures online could be better, including two decks and loft area in master. All bedrooms are on upper level. The two seating areas was great - plenty of room - including dining table and kitchen island seating.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at this lovely home in early October. The location was perfect for us -- just a couple of blocks from the downtown area (far western end) and on a very pretty, quiet cul-de-sac. A 10-15 minute walk to the (South) beach/light house and a 2 minute drive. Easy walk to all the shops and restaurants for my elderly mother. The property has been professionally landscaped and appears newly remodeled. The home is immaculately clean and well maintained. Lots of windows and a bright, spacious feeling interior. The kitchen was beautiful and well-stocked with everything you need for a comfortable visit. Loved the first floor laundry. Bathrooms very nice. Master bath on second floor has separate shower and soaking tub, dual sinks. Towels were abundant and of a good quality similar to what you'd find in a Hampton Inn (mid-range, white, absorbent and fluffy). Bedrooms all on second floor with comfortable beds and plenty of storage space. MBR spacious with wall of windows and large deck, as well as a "crow's nest" loft . You can see the river from the second floor deck/MBR and the loft area. First floor had open living area with connected living and family rooms, and kitchen. Comfortable seating and flat screen TV. Books and magazines. Nice deck off kitchen, with dining table/chairs, good lighting and suspended wooden swinging bench. Gas grill located in small, but beautifully landscaped, fenced back yard. Back yard open to one next door neighbor whose property is professionally landscaped to blend -- very nicely done. Neighbors on all sides quiet and we rarely saw them. The covered front porch was cute and comfortable, with a couple of white rockers. Blinds and curtains for privacy on all windows except stairwell. Ceiling fans everywhere kept the house comfortable along with up-to-date central air and heat. We really appreciated that the owner was quite prompt in responding to our last minute request for accommodation and very easy to work with. Provided good instructions. Owner was easily available via phone/text. Highly recommend this home with super nice owners and would definitely stay again. Love the beaches, orchards (Dutch Farm Market and Crane's) , cute shops and restaurants, friendly people, "walkability", and nice, down-home atmosphere of South Haven. Nearby towns and beaches we also enjoyed visiting included Saugatuck and St. Joseph. Just a beautiful area
