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 Southwest Michigan

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.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Mod Cottage for a girls weekend and had a great time. Enough space to accommodate all 7 of us and within walking distance of downtown. The cottage is very cute, clean and well maintained.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful for our group of 8. It was exactly as shown in the pictures, very well maintained and had easy access to the town of Three Oaks and nearby New Buffalo. The only suggestion we would make is that if there are more than 4 people staying to bring your own coffee mugs, as there were only 4 in the house but otherwise it was very well equipped and had everything we needed. I would recommend this place to anyone and my friends and I would love to come back!

Owner's Response: Hi Carla, Thank you so much for your nice review of The Mod Cottage in Three Oaks. I'm so glad you and your guests enjoyed your winter getaway! It's nice to hear that you might consider a return visit. I'm sorry there were only 4 mugs during your stay. (There are supposed to be 12) I have let the property manager know and we will make sure that the cupboard is fully stocked. Thank you for bringing it to our attention! Kelly and staff

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

The Mod Cottage was all that was promised and more. The house does not look like much from the outside, but inside is beautiful. My granddaughter said it best when she climbed up into the loft "I love this house". The location is perfect, close to restaurants, wineries, shopping and the reason we were here The Pine Crest Tree Farm was minutes away. The house was clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for our family. We are looking forward to a return trip. Thanks so much Kelly for sharing your vacation home.
