Why Peter Hoopes chose Southwest Michigan

On our first visit to South Haven, we knew it was a great Midwestern 'resort' town. When this house became available so close to the beach, we knew we found a perfect little cottage for our family and renters.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a girls weekend retreat at this lovely home! It exceeded our expectations for the price. We were impressed by its quality and cleanliness. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked. The beds were comfortable, and decorations and upgrades were beautiful. The rooms were spacious. We enjoyed breakfast on the front lawn/patio overlooking the lake each morning. The cottage owner was accommodating and quick to respond during the reservation process.

The cottage was a short walk to two different stairs to access the beach. The kids playground was only a block away. The beach was wide and had soft, fine sand. The red lighthouse was just a short walk down the beach. The weather was beautiful (75-80 degrees) all weekend. The leaves were changing colors. South Haven's shops were unique and numerous! We enjoyed the farmer's market Saturday morning. We also enjoyed our trip to the McIntosh Apple Orchard where you can taste wine and pick apples for 50 cents a pound!

We were all talking about coming back to the "Three Sisters Cottage" again next fall for another girls retreat. We also mentioned how fun it would be to bring our families for a week next summer! God blessed us with a perfect cottage, in a wonderful town, on a beautiful beach!

Adorable house one block from South Beach !

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect , decorated so cute, very clean , stocked with everything you need .

The family room is a great addition , can be used as extra bedroom . My favorite is the wrought iron table and chairs in the front yard where you can sit and watch the sunset ! South Haven is my favorite harbor town , shops and restaurants, the Farmers market on weds and sat . Can hardly wait to come back next summer . The Marcin's

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at The Three Sisters Cottage and as always was just perfect. The home itself is clean and comfortable, Peter and his family have done a wonderful job maintaining and keeping a well stocked home, everything you need is here.

The home itself is close to the beach and not far from town. Our grandchildren love the kids corner which is just around the corner.

We've made some wonderful family memories here and hope to keep doing so in the coming years.

Thank you Peter and family for sharing your little piece of heaven, God bless. Sincerely yours,

The Koleczko's

Great place and neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second visit to Three Sisters Cottage. Property is well kept and easily accessible to the best of South Haven. My only comment is that several light bulbs were burnt out. My recommendation to the property owner is to replace all bulbs with LED bulbs so you don't have to rely on weekly maintenance staff to check and change them. LED bulbs will last a really long time and ultimately pay for themselves. Other than that, the cottage is a really great place to stay and has all the comforts of home.

Owner's Response: Hi Eddie - thanks for the note. I'm sorry for the bulbs that were down. We've been slowly replacing them with LEDs as they go down. I'll ask our cleaning team to look for those where possible. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope you stay with us again!

South Haven South Beach

South Haven is the perfect cozy resort town. From the cottage, if you walk past three houses to the west you are standing at the lake. Just across the street is the beach access. One block to the south is the Kids' Corner playground. The cottage is also a short walk (15 min) to the downtown shops and restaurants. South Haven is located in southwest Michigan on beautiful Lake Michigan. Just 2 hours from Chicago and 3 hours from Detroit, we are no far from Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. We are just a short drive from other coastal communities such as Saugatuck, Holland, & St. Jospeh. The perfect location for your summer vacation with family and friends!

Golf: There are a number of golf courses within 15 minutes of this location.
