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!

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.

Very happy with the Three Sisters Cottage and would stay there again

  • 5 of 5

We had no complaints after our five-night stay at the Three Sisters Cottage. The place is great - clean, lots of good places to sit outside, and of course a block walk to the beach - I honestly can't think of any negatives whatsoever. I would stay there again absolutely and would recommend it to anybody.

Wonderful weekend away

  • 5 of 5

The Three Sister's Cottage was a wonderful place to stay during our recent weekend in South Haven. The decor and furnishings were well maintained and well done. The location is close enough to the beach and Phoenix street to walk to most places, yet far enough to be quiet and relaxing at the cottage. I would definitely stay again!

Great time in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved our stay in "Three Sisters Cottage". We had a girls weekend and the house was perfect walking distance to the beach as well as all of the shops and restaurants in the downtown area. House was clean, well stocked and easy to get to. I can't wait to come back to South Haven and explore more. I will be recommending this house for a stay in South Haven to all of my friends and family. Thanks for helping make our girls weekend such a success!

I've been trying to think of something wrong with this property for some reason and I can't come up with anything. Great location, lovely home, fully equipped more so than most rentals, loved walking the neighborhood, the beach only four houses away and walking into town. Like I said I can't find anything wrong and would stay there again in a minute. We keep talking about how quiet it was there. Oh wait I just thought of something the house didn't have any ice cube trays, whew I thought of something! Even with no ice cube trays I could have stayed there for months!

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.
