About Jen Chada
We bought the land (pictured here) in 2007 and completed the cottage in 2011. We plan to live here one day now that our only child goes is off at college. We currently live and work in Chicagoland and enjoy spending time at the cottage during the off season.

Why Jen Chada chose Miami Park
We fell in love with this location immediately due to it's privacy and proximity to all that South Haven, Fennville, Saugatuck/Douglas and beyond have to offer. The cottage itself was built to spec and we take pride in maintaining and managing it ourselves.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the convenience of the beach nearby and the sunsets are simply spectacular! We love seeing nature outside our doorstep like deer, red fox, bunnies and birds of all kinds. Star gazing at night; napping in the hammock by day; taking long walks along the beach have become pasttimes. We have favorite restaurants, farmers markets and local business owners that make us feel like a part of the community which is so welcoming in South Haven

Wonderful Cottage Near South Haven
This property was perfect for our family of five. We have three children that are grown (17 to 21) that travelled with us to visit South Haven. The cottage was really new, clean, and a good size for us to spread out. We cooked breakfast and dinner in each night. One evening we had a small fire and made s’mores. The location was an easy drive to town, the lighthouse, and Sherman’s for ice cream. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it. The beds were comfortable, close to the lake, and outdoor amenities. The owner was easily accessible and called prior to checking in.
Thanks for the kind words and for choosing us. We feel it's a special place and love that wonderful families like you want to make memories there year after year. I'm glad it worked well for your family and the location served your needs. We'd love to have you back again soon. See you next season!

“Fall” in love💕 with TLC”
The cottage was awesome! So nicely decorated, clean, cozy, & very well stocked with extra items!
Jen was an awesome host who when there was an unexpected power outage due to the extreme winds, kept us informed, checked on us and was ready to help us in the unusual situation.
Made us feel very welcomed & important to them as their guests.
Loved the location! We took long walks, visited Holland and Saugatuck as well as spent much time in downtown South Haven shopping, site seeing, and eating! We enjoyed ourselves very much and will definitely return again! Also will be spreading info. to our friends to stay there as well!
Thanks for a wonderful stay!!
Thanks so much for your kind comments and details of what made your stay meaningful. Thanks also for sending the photos of the beach and your adorable pup, Oskar! We look forward to your return and count me in this time, you are definitely the type of gals id like to hang with! 😊
We were there for a long weekend. The property was clean; didn't have any need to communicate with property manager while we where there; the tram was great for getting down to the beach but there are approximately 15 stairs to get down after the tram if you are bringing the wagon, etc. so it would have been difficult to bring a lot of items to the beach (lawn chairs, picnic lunch, cooler, etc.) . It was a nice quiet area.
Thanks so much for your candid comments about your stay in South Haven. The tram solution was a challenge after highest water on record this season left them inoperable for most of the summer. The revetment solution was the best way to at least access the beach. Thanks for your patience and understanding. We truly appreciate your choosing TLC By The Lake and hope you'd choose to visit again. Sincerely, Jen and Mike
Jen was very helpful & friendly. The house is comfortable and cozy. It has everything needed to have a great time.
Beautiful home and location to celebrate a Birthday!
Jen and Mike have a beautiful home that we were so happy they share! They were very easy to work with and very responsive to questions. Their home is in a beautiful location and they have a great deck and grill with a lot of privacy. They also are within a short drive to either downtown South Haven or Sagatuck. We look forward to visiting again! Thanks!
Hard to leave
This property is absolutely amazing. The dirt road and tree filled yard welcome you to this completely comfortable space. We settled in so easily. Jen has the home set up to make it feel as if it's your own. I loved the slow pace of the neighborhood. People weren't tuning on their televisions at night, they were walking down to see the sunset. Because it's stunning. The beaches, water activities, farm fresh food and nature are right at your finger tips. We really didn't do much more than the beach and the house because they were both so fulfilling. Fourteen days felt like 2 nights. We already miss the hammock and blowing leaves, lake walks and patio dinners. What a wonderful place:)
Thanks for all your help Jen and for sharing this space.
Ps-hopefully a recycling program can become attainable soon. If not, the local grocer, Meijer, accepts some can and glass products.
Of course the best time is right here at the cottage on our patio in the woods grilling out or making s'mores in the chimnea while lounging on the hammock counting the stars. Every night provides the most amazing sunsets and things to do rain or shine.
