About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Wooded Setting, Association Lake Michigan Beach Access

All of the cottage charm that you recall from those childhood memories, with all the features of home. This beautiful cottage home is truly a unique one of a kind experience for you and your family. Located in a Lake Michigan community known as Glenn Shores, you'll enjoy all the best nature has to offer. You can take a leisurely stroll to the association steps where you'll find access to miles of Lake Michigan beach. You also have the option of a second association access point where you can drive right down to the beach with all your picnic supplies to enjoy a day at the beach. Spend the day relaxing along the shore while listening to the crashing waves and squishing your toes in the sand. Splash in the clear waters of Lake Michigan, search for sea glass, or, in the evenings, take in all the beauty of a Michigan sunset. This area of the coast is truly something special.

When you’re at the cottage you’ll be able to enjoy all the charm of a 1940’s cottage with all the luxuries of home. The fully furnished kitchen will allow you to enjoy wonderful family dinners. Enjoy your meals in the formal dining area, or escape to the screened in porch for a more relaxed dining experience. The home has a large living/family area that includes a large flat screen TV. The kitchen was recently upgraded with stainless steel appliances.

There two bedrooms, both furnished with queen size beds and flat screen TV’s. There is one bathroom with a large shower. The living/family room has a sleeper sofa.

One of the most interesting outside features of the home is the “Crow’s Nest” our second story viewing deck, the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail while enjoying the views of nature with your family and friends.

We are dog friendly! Yep, we will consider allowing you to take your dog along with you on your vacation, there is an additional fee for Fido, and we do have some size and common sense guidelines that must be adhered to.

Their is an additional fee of $200.00 per week for Fido.

About Coreen & Terese

Hi we're Coreen & Terese, in 1997, we bought our vacation home in Glenn Shores on beautiful Lake Michigan. Like most people who vacation here, you hate to go home on Sunday. The sunsets are breathtaking and the natural beauty of southwest Michigan is captivating; we just knew that we needed a home of our own in this piece of paradise.

Coreen & Terese purchased this cottage in 1997

Beautiful!!! A little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this house. Our favorite spot was on the screened porch watching the deer, hummingbirds, squirrels, and relaxing to the sounds of the lake waves hitting the shore. Very comfortable home and equipped with anything you could possibly need.

Amazing Experience Here - We Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

I took my family (wife, 7 year old daughter, and dog) to this cottage for our summer vacation, and we all had an amazing experience. The cottage itself was nestled into a little nook of forest, surrounded on all four sides by woods, with a beautiful opening in the tall tree canopy directly above the property, so you would get sun during the late morning and through the mid-day. But the early morning and the late evening were nice and shaded by all the tall trees.

You can hear the waves on the lake from anywhere on the property. The lake and beachfront is just a short 3 minute walk down an access road directly behind the cottage. We spent every morning, and evening, down by the lake with our dog.

The cottage has an attached, fenced in "pen" for dogs, which was absolutely perfect. You can let your dog out into the pen without ever having to step foot outside.

The cottage was extremely well kept, extremely clean, with a new modern kitchen.

It was just a quick 10-15 min drive to downtown South Haven.

The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Only a phone call or text message away. Very responsive to any/all communications and questions prior to, and during our visit.

My daughter loved exploring the property, and watching all of the different types of birds flying around. It was quite impressive to see so many humming birds.

I simply cannot say enough good things about this cottage, the owners, and our experience there. We all shed a few tears the morning we were departing, as we clearly didn't want to leave. My wife and I talked about needing to retire to this area of Michigan after experiencing it for ourselves.

We are already planning our return trip to this same cabin!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day Weekend and really enjoyed staying at the cottage. It is in a quiet location and close to the lake access within the community. It is also a short drive to Saugatuck and the wineries.The cottage was clean and has everything you need for weekend getaway. The owners were also great and very friendly. We would stay here again.

Enchanting Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our (first) visit to this beautiful cottage! Nestled among the trees in a small, quiet, community, the peaceful surroundings were enhanced by the sounds of nature and the rolling waves of Lake Michigan. The cottage itself is lovingly appointed with an atmosphere that exudes warmth and cozines. All amenities were provided for by our gracious hostesses, who were as friendly and kind, as they were generous with their hospitality.

We look forward to returning to this little piece of heaven!!

Charming cottage in great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at this charming cottage over the 4th of July holiday. The location was ideal, about halfway between South Haven and Saugatuck, and just a short drive to Oval Beach. The cottage is nestled in the woods and felt very private. We enjoyed watching wildlife from the screen porch and my wife loved the crows nest. The cottage is well stocked and the hostesses were great.
