Wonderful stay right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome weekend here with the family. House is clean and has many different sleeping options. Got to use the backyard grill and then ate on the large dining table on the porch while the sun set right in front of us. What a view! The owners are super nice and easy to communicate with. Couldn't have had a nicer time. Highly recommended!

Clean, cozy, great view, convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Thank you, it was a wonderfully relaxing weekend. The first day was the warmest & if there was air conditioning, we couldn't figure it out. But otherwise, the property fit our needs & I'd rent again!

2-day family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Perfect space and spectacular views. Tons of yard, deck and interior space for my family to get all the cousins together for fun in the sun. Traveling with toddlers can be rough and this place has tons of space for the kids to run around. Even when we got some rain--owners have books and toys for little one's to enjoy--super thoughtful!! Our group had 1, 2 and 3 year olds so space and patience is the uniform of the day and this place offers it all. Thanks again.

A Perfect 10 for Family Time, and to Relax and Restore

  • 5 of 5

This cabin on Lake Michigan has it all - everything you need to slow down and enjoy some wonderful family time together. Between sitting on the deck and watching the beautiful sunset, to playing cards at the kitchen table, to laying on the porch bed and hearing the sounds of Lake Michigan, it is a small slice of heaven on earth. Our arrangements were made seamlessly without issue and the owner was responsive to every email in less than 24 hours. We will keep this property bookmarked for future vacations, and will give it a 5 star recommendation to those who are like us, and love the sun, the sand, the Lake and being together with family. I would also suggest checking for a calendar of events along the south shoreline towns and villages, as there are many festivals and events in this area. We happened to hit the Tulip festival week in Holland, which was just one added benefit to our time there.

Breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, cozy cottage in a central location.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage provided a weekend getaway for 4 couples to unwind and relax, play card games around the dining table, enjoy views of the Lake from inside since the weather was unseasonably chilly, and was centrally located to South Haven, Saugatuck and Holland for day trips.

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

Family of 7 stayed for 5 days. Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Nice breeze from the lake throughout the many windows of the house. Loved the deck looking out at the lake. Very quiet area. The only thing I would make note of is that the beach is down the cliff. We counted about 89 stairs straight down. Worth the effort though :-) Beautiful sunsets from the beach. Rocky beach, make sure to wear water shoes. Very quiet area. Owner was very helpful and accessible. Great location. Close to South Haven and Saugatuck. Great beach and restaurants in South Haven. We went down to the Black River Park & Boat Launch 15 minutes away, and went kayaking down the river.
