About Kim Fortner

We bought our cottage in 2007 because SW MI is our favorite summer destinations. We enjoy being centrally located to many popular beaches. We decided to rent the cottage so others could enjoy the area and see how beautiful SW MI is. The cottage is located on a quiet street with a large yard. There is plenty of parking if you decide to bring your boat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kim! My sister and best friend, and I had such a wonderful time! Your house was perfect! From the ample size, to the modern decorations, to all the accouterments in the kitchen and bathroom, it was a great stay. We even grilled! Felt like a home away from home ;) I didn't realize how close my uncle's house was to yours (he is on paw paw lake road less than 10 minutes away!)

We look forward to coming again.

Karen :)

Girls Getaway a Success!

  • 5 of 5

Simply Perfect! My sister and best friend, and I had such a wonderful time! The house was everything we needed! From the ample size, to the modern decorations, to all the accoutrements in the kitchen and bathroom, it was a great stay. We even grilled in the screened in porch! Felt like a home away from home ;) So many great local places to eat and drink wine!

We look forward to coming again, staying longer, and may even bring a few more friends!

Owner's Response: Karen, I'm so glad you had a great time and enjoyed the cottage. It's nice having a few wineries close to the cottage for a girls weekend. Contessa and Karma Vista are right in Coloma. There is also a fairly new winery close by - Vineyard 2121. Or if you don't feel like driving and want to take a winery tour, Fruitful Vine has several pick ups in the area. Hope to have you back next year!

Country Cottage Comfort

  • 5 of 5

During our stay at the country cottage, my family was very comfortable and relaxed. We enjoyed the screened in porch immensely and had plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and have their own space. We liked the convenience to Hardings Grocery Store and to the numerous beaches we visited. Kim and Jim were very helpful and provided immediate feedback to our questions. I highly recommend staying here to anyone considering staying in this area. You will enjoy every minute!

Great Family Get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Clean home and quiet neighborhood. Huge yard for the kids. Spent a lot of time in the large screened in porch and around the fire pit. Close to St. Joeseph, Lake Michigan and South Haven. Downtown Coloma has several nice taverns and restaurants. Only minor complaint was no DVD player and very limited selection of cable channels but great high-speed internet (~20 mb).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Robert, glad you had a good time. In past years we had a DVD player and video library. However we found most guests had their own streaming accounts and it wasn't a feature they needed. It may be worth looking into expanding our cable channels next year. Thanks for the feedback.

Owner's Response: Stephanie, Glad you enjoyed the area. I love being so close to South Haven too. Not sure if you got the chance to visit St. Joe- it's also a short distance away and a fun town. Please come back anytime. Kim Fortner

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great summer cottage. The beds were comfortable and the place was super clean. Great fire pit in the back yard with a screened in porch. It was very easy to communicate with the owners. We'd highly recommend it.
