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!

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!

Lovely back deck and front patio to enjoy. Everything you need was in the cottage to make you feel at home. There was a mixup with the cleaning staff before we arrived, but the owner was quick to respond and resolved the situation with no problem. This family of three sisters will definitely return next year.

Charming cottage with wonderful views of the lake and gorgeous sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

The home was immaculate, very well stocked, and had everything we needed.

The decor was done very well, cheerful and cozy....inviting ambience!

We used the patio at sunsets, the deck for meals and games.

Thank you for providing a delightful place for our family to reunite for a few days.

Absolutely Loved This Place!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Three Sisters Cottage, in South Haven! The house was super clean, super cute and had everything a family could need. We loved how close it was to the water and sitting out front in the mornings having breakfast/coffee was just wonderful! We were able to walk everywhere which was so nice and convenient. The owner, Peter was wonderful to communicate with prior to our stay, he was very helpful and responded in a very timely manner! We have nothing but wonderful things to say all around and we will be staying here again for sure when coming back to South Haven!!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Three Sisters Cottage. We love the cottage atmosphere, not to mention the short distance to the lake! You can watch the sunset from just a few feet away - perfect if you have small children. The interior is well maintained and darling inside. My family loves this home! The owners are very attentive and kind, as well. You won't be disappointed if you stay at this cottage!

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.
