About kelly hansen

We are a family of four living in Howell, Michigan in the Detroit suburbs.

My husband, Jeff, is a financial planner and I own an interior design firm. Jeff and I like to restore old homes and buildings. Our offices are located in a fully restored, three story Victorian building in Downtown Howell.

We love to ride our bikes. We have taken our tandems all over North America. We have a tandem for the boys and a tandem for the girls. We originally came to Three Oaks for the cycling, wineries and Lake Michigan.

My children are now 15 and 17 and they helped us with the restoration of the vacation home which took 14 months to complete. They also like the in town location because it gives them a little freedom-- they can play at two nearby parks. They also enjoy the library, pharmacy and ice cream shops; all of which are a two block walk from the cottage.

Now that we have a vacation home in Harbor Country we hope to enjoy the beautiful area year round and share it with family and guests.

Why kelly hansen chose Three Oaks

We had been renting in Three Oaks for almost ten years before we finally decided to buy our own vacation home.

We love the area for its beauty -- especially the Lake Michigan shoreline and the wineries. We are cycling enthusiasts and the roads in Berrien County are a cyclists dream - safe, scenic and well marked.

We purchased the home on Cedar Street because my husband and I restore historic properties and we loved the in-town location of this charming home.

What makes this house unique

I think our visitors will enjoy the home itself- it is in great shape and the decor is cheerful and a little quirky. The location is a bonus for those who like to stroll the antique shops, restaurants and theatres of Three Oaks - leave the car behind!

Hop on your bike and tour all of Harbor Country - we've provided the cycling maps for you.

Take a scenic drive out to one of the wineries. We love late summer and early fall for trips out to the farms and vineyards.

Two of our favorite beaches are the Warren Dunes State Park and the New Buffalo City Beach. At Warren Dunes challenge your family to climb the Tower Hill sand dune. We do it once a year and the views are worth it! Or have dinner in New Buffalo and walk to the city beach - check out the yachts or watch the sunset as you take an evening dip. The water is beautiful.

walking, running, jogging, and one of the best places in the mid-west for cycling. The property is close to the warren woods state park, warren dunes state park, the St. Joseph River and Lake Michigan

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Family was in town for a family wedding. Place was absolutely perfect! The rooms were great for 6 adults and 2 kids (1 yr and 2.5 yr old). Plenty of room and close to the wedding. All questions were answered immediately by owners. We would definitely rent again if back in the area. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed our visit

  • 5 of 5

Kelly was very easy to get a hold of and very accommodating. They have done a beautiful job remodeling this property. We were able to bring our dog which we really appreciated. The nearby beach and dunes and park were great for walking. We went during off season, so several shops and restaurants were closed, but we got a personal tour of Journeyman Distillery and had a nice dinner at The Staymaker. New Buffalo is only about five miles away with more shops and restaurants available. Very enjoyable! Thanks, Kelly.
