Perfect Get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had been planning a much needed vacation for months when our original rental feel through. I panicked and searched for the perfect place for a much needed vacation. I needed a cottage in the woods, beach access, a owner open to a family BBQ one day, and a place to rent for one week. Well, Bob saved the day! He immediately responded to my email, spoke with me on the phone, and we were set! The cabin is beautiful, clean, with plenty of kitchen utensils, blankets, towels, soaps, cable TV, BBQ pit, two decks, and a short walk to a private beach. Being my clumsy self while on the beach I cut my toe. Bob was near by and grabbed first aid from his home for me to hold onto until we left. He also provided a fantastic binder with restaurant suggestions and menus, vineyard locations, and things to do brochures. Thank you so much Bob! We will be back!

Adorable Relaxing A-Frame

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and had an amazing time. The A-frame is absolutely perfect. It's set off the road in a quiet neighborhood in a very pretty area of Michigan. The outside and the inside are incredibly clean - I didn't see even 1 spider web on the OUTSIDE of the cottage! The hosts have really done a great job in providing everything you'll need. The walk to the private beach is a very short 5-10 minute walk down a dirt road and some stairs down the bluff. If you want to drive down to the beach there is parking too.

We just loved our entire experience. It was relaxing, comfy and beautiful. I think next time we'll try and stay for the week.

A+ Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks at this cottage which is conveniently located between South Haven and Saugatuck. The beach was great! I don't ever remember Lake Michigan being as warm and I grew up near here. Lots of selection for eateries, antiquing, golf, cycling, on and on! The owners were extremely helpful and caring about our stay. We will be back!

A Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We took our two young kids to the cottage for a long weekend and we all had a great time. The cottage had everything you could ask for. The beach was practically ours each day we were there with beautiful sunsets. We all had fun combing the beach for rocks. Located between South Haven and Saugatuck, we had plenty of choices for dinner, sight-seeing and an occasional ice-cream cone. We would certainly recommend staying at this cottage with or without kids. We were treated with total respect from the owners, always willing to lend a helping hand.

They had sand toys for the kids, nice beach chairs, coolers, virtually anything you would need, so just bring yourselves.

We hope to make it back there again.

Two Thumbs Up from us!

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute treat staying at this charming little cabin! I know I speak for both of us in saying that the owner's kindness and hospitality- on top of the pristine setting and utterly adorable a-frame- far exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have been more delighted. Clean, well appointed, incredibly cozy- it couldn't have been better.

I'm sure you will be hearing from us in the future!
