What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really loved this house! There were seven of us including two small children and the house was more than sizable enough for all of us. Big upstairs living area, big downstairs living area and a big deck. With the availability of a downstairs living room, those of us who wanted to stay up and gab could have our fun without waking up anyone in the upstairs bedrooms. We also played board games on the deck very late one night without disturbing anyone.



I was impressed by the hip retro furniture in the upstairs living room and kitchen -- a nice departure from your typical humdrum boats and lighthouse themed summer home decor. This property has a very fresh feel to it.



Terrific location -- walking distance to downtown South Haven and the beach. Very quiet street with friendly neighbors. I'll stay here whenever I return to South Haven. Highly recommended!

Very nice property. My family enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very nice and we'll kept. My family was very comfortable (all ten of us and our pug). The kitchen was a little small to fit all of us, so we cooked our meals and then moved everything downstairs where there was more space.

Very Nice Home and Great Locations

  • 4 of 5

Our family was very happy with our stay. The home is well maintained and clean. We played games in front of the fireplace in the evening. It's a short walk to the water. The weather on Sunday was especially beautiful which made the walk into town a wonderful experience. We normally head to Michigan once or twice each winter and would come back again if available.

Great home, everything was as described, and good location. Prompt responses from the owner to questions. Very clean, perfectly maintained. The downstairs area with fireplace and game table was particularly wonderful. Plenty of room...we'll be back next year!!

Great House in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described on the listing and it was in great condition. Perfect sized house for our group of 10. Great location close to the beach and the downtown area. We would stay there again.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family just came back from a belated Christmas celebration. Two of our married children were out of town on Christmas, so we decided to get together with all the kids in Michigan when everyone was back.

This house served our purposes just great. All 10 of us had somewhere to sleep. The walkout family room was perfect for us all to spend time together. The woods and creek through the property were super scenic. And Lake Michigan was a very short walk away.

We would definitely stay here again.

Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

This space was perfect to host a small gathering of family to celebrate the holidays and provide out of town folks with a quiet and comfortable bed for slumbering. The residence was clean and spacious. The large basement was the perfect space to entertain the kids and later in the evening, the adults enjoyed the warm glow from the fireplace and a nightcap! I also, loved that it was conveniently located to nearby stores. Mark was more than accommodating with answering my questions and went above and beyond to bring the grill out of storage- for an unseasonably warm day of winter grilling! Thank you for a great stay, I would return!
