Your place was as discribed, clean, comfortable, and very close to the beach. It was perfect for us and our two kids. We had the best week and will definately consider for next year.

Perfect location, perfect size, very neat and tidy!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so adorable in the inside. Being flower lovers we enjoyed the beautiful flower garden right outside the front door. The big sectional couch was awesome for watching the nice flat screen Tv in the evening. There is also a very nice radio that we had on quite often. This cottage was walking distance to downtown, only a stones throw from beautiful Lake Michigan, and in a quaint neighborhood. Us three women, all over the age of sixty, would highly recommend this property, and we are hoping to rent again next year!!!

Location means a lot!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage for more than a dozen years. We like that it is located back from the public beach yet just a short walk away. It comes with space to park 2 vehicles which is so much more convenient than buying an expensive parking pass & parking on the street or in a lot. There is wifi & air conditioning which is not provided in all cottages there. The cottage is small & cozy & clean. We are always satisfied with our week at the Baby Grand!

Cutest cottage, best location

  • 5 of 5

This sweet little cottage has everything you need for an amazing week in S Haven. A 30 sec walk to North Beach (best beach in S Haven), 2 min walk to Bunde's (serves Starbuck's coffee and yummy baked goods) and 10 min walk to downtown S Haven for food, massage, shopping, etc. The cottage itself has a small bedroom (separated by a curtain, so not a lot of privacy) with a full size bed, in the main living area there is a twin bed with a twin trundle- so room for a few more to sleep. There is also a sectional couch in the TV space with a nice flat screen TV. Kitchen is small, but has everything you need...oven, micro, fridge, all the essential tools. Bathroom is small with a tub/shower combo. No washer/dryer. Great chairs to use at the beach, no need to bring your own. We love staying here! Super quiet neighbors, too. Eric has been great to rent from, thanks Eric!

Great family get-a-way

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our trip to South Haven and the Baby Grand was an excellent place to stay. Clean, good ammenities, very close to the beach. Located in a great little beach community away from the more tourist areas of town. Worked very well for our family of five with young kids. As our kids get older we'll out grow this place, but it was great for us. No complaints here!
