Coloma Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps up to 10, walk to the beach, AC & wifi.

This gem of a cottage is situated on a large lot in an area of vacation homes. With private-association beach access just 150 feet from the door, 140 steps down the bluff will take you to a beautiful sandy beach. Our cottage/home sleeps up to 10 people comfortably with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Living room with fireplace and a large eat-in kitchen along with the sun room give everyone plenty of room to relax and enjoy the long summer days. Plenty of board games and room to play; nice yard with deck, hammock, firepit and seating for everyone make this a great destination rain or shine. The cottage is located just 10 minutes away from charming St. Joseph, Michigan--ice cream shops, antiques, restaurants, festivals and a new beautiful carousel at Silver Beach.

One of a kind

  • 5 of 5

Excellent and homey, with a real caboose right on the property for kids to play in. Beach steps away and private. The area had a neighborhood feel and we were welcomed by the friendly neighbors. Lots of beds and all the comforts of home...but in a much better location!

Great house + Fantastic beach = Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great house in an amazing location steps away from a private, sandy Lake Michigan beach. The house is very nice and cozy but roomy enough to fit 4 adults and 5 kids very easily. The beach is beautiful and private. We spent nearly every hour we were awake at the beach swimming, snorkeling, relaxing, building sandcastles, kayaking, etc. I would absolutely recommend this house to my family and friends and am already planning on going back next year!

Charming Cottage in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in an unexpected location. Beautiful sunsets on Lake Michigan, just steps away. Loved the homey feel, once you step in the door. Felt like I was at home away from home. All the comforts of home without the hassles. This was my third time at this great cottage. Once a guest always a guest. I will be coming back again. The sunroom was a great place to sit and knit on a cold winters day. Great place to get away from it!

Beautiful - Charming

  • 5 of 5

What a sweet, charming house. I had to respond to the last unfavorable review. I can only think you were not in the same house we stayed in. My family and I were able to enjoy a beautiful time at this house. The charm is in the family feel you get upon first entering the house. Since my children are grown it was so sweet to see the kids artwork. The antiques add to the charm. They fit in perfectly with the theme of the house. The beach is private and beautiful, we spent a lot of time at the beach, swimming, sunbathing and having a bonfire!

The house is immaculate and well kept. The bedrooms with their cozy quilts, skylights and charming iron beds were absolutely dreamy.

The sunroom is so pretty and we had all of our meals out there. I would recommend this house to my friends and have already started planning our next summer vacation there.

Great house, lots of charm, great beach!!! I'd give it 6 stars if possible.

Wonderful Experience Warm Home

  • 4 of 5

The home is so charming and welcoming to guest. Favorite room is the cozy sun room, room enough for all. The deck for grilling, eating and greeting the neighbors is outstanding. Our grandchildren so enjoyed the train playhouse and the beach which is so much fun for them and us. Beach is wonderful and so private for guest to enjoy, bring your chairs, drinks, food and spend the day, room for all. The area around Coloma is filled with much to do and see, we are golfers and were please with the golf course near by. Look forward to coming again with our family. R.F.

Someone's home

  • 1 of 5

Our stay at this house was less than ideal. It became clear thought out the stay that they rent out the place when they are not there. Other rentals will be clean and furnished but empty of personal effects. When we arrived the kitchen cabinets were loaded with the owner’s food so our group ended up with our food crowding the countertops for the entire week. When the contact number was called to complain we were told to “just deal with it”. The house is furnished with LOTS of personal stuff, family photos, kid drawings as well as antiques. We had little kids and had to move more than a few things that were dangerous that were just left on the floor. Think old-sharp-metal. There is no water softener so the 1st load of clothes we washed three swim suits were ruined with rust stains. No one did laundry after that. The place was dirty... a good size piece of bacon (old and hairy) was found in the kitchen, all the plumbing fixtures are heavily stained with rust, and the bedding was thread bared. The stairs to the lake were numerous, steep, and uneven - dangerous. We didn’t even try them after the first trip down, we ended up having to drive to the public beaches in the area.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Yes, our beach house is our family vacation home, lovingly decorated with items that are special to us and our children. It is not however, over-furnished, dangerous or cluttered. Our children have gotten older and busier in the last few years and we haven't had much time to enjoy our summer cottage, therefore we offer it for other families to enjoy. We do keep dishes, pots, glassware in the cupboards as well as some staple goods; which our guests are free to use if they choose. We strive to have the house very clean for our guests and also provide phone numbers if there is ever an issue we can help with. We encourage all guests to read the description thoroughly and ask any questions which may arise before reserving. The home and beach access are described accurately on our Home Away listing. If issues do arise we would also like to encourage all vacation home guests to try to resolve their problems with the home-owner before posting a review. Best Regards.
