Overview

About the property

Fun, affordable family vacation. Fully equipped kitchen, gas grill!!!

If the dates you are looking for are booked, please take a look at our second rental, 4282463. Stone's Throw Cottage is located just 2 blocks from the beautiful Lake Michigan shore and public beach access. This adorable 2-bedroom, 1-bath bungalow sleeps 6-8 people. It is located within walking distance to the beach, parks, downtown and a biking/walking trail. There is a large backyard for cookouts and lawn games plus plenty of space to park your boat or jet skis! Perfect for families or a Girls' getaway weekend. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and cookware. WiFi, cable, and washer and dryer are included as well. Yard games, hula hoops, jump ropes, beach toys and rafts on site for your use. A complimentary bottle of wine and snacks from local shops will be ready for you on arrival.

Approximately 1 mile from the cottage you'll find our downtown area with unique shops, and GREAT restaurants. If you have a sweet tooth, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and candy shops are not hard to find. Jet-ski, bicycle, and scooter rentals are available too. A local grocery store is also close by. If you enjoy fishing, charter one of several boats to go on the big lake, steelhead and perch are abundant. If fishing is not your thing but want to get on the water, consider taking a voyage on a historic 1810 replica sloop named Friends Good Will, or cruise down the river on the Lindy Lou, available through Michigan Maritime Museum. Summer events include Harborfest in June and the National Blueberry Festival in August. Just because summer is over, we still have more to offer. South Haven and the surrounding area will be bursting with fall colors , visit some of the local wineries and take in all the beauty. Kal-Haven trail is nearby for bicycling, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing. Also in the wintertime you can enjoy the outdoor ice rink located downtown under the city pavilion. Festivals aren't just happening in the summertime, the first weekend in February is our annual Ice Breaker event. Lining the streets of downtown are beautiful ice sculptures, there is a chili cook-off, euchre tournament, and a pub crawl. Anytime of the year enjoy a movie at Michigan Theater, movie, pop, and popcorn for under $8, or take the kids bowling at Lakeside Entertainment. So much to do and see, for further information about our city visit South Haven.org. We look forward to making your stay in South Haven as comfortable and fun as we can!

Fantastic lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved stones throw cottage! Most everything was within walking distance. Our son enjoyed the daily wagon rides to the lake. The house itself was very cute and it had all the amenities that we needed including a great backyard filled with games. We highly recommend Stones Throw Cottage for a perfect getaway!

A great place to stay! Clean, functional, and close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house is super clean and really well designed to make great use of the space, and it has everything you need. My 2-year-old loved the bunk beds (the owners even have a bed rail you can use!), and the bedrooms are cool at night, which is great for sleeping. The porch is nice in the mornings, and the backyard is awesome in the evenings (too hot during the day). It's a bit of a hike to the beach on foot with a toddler, but the parking lot access has an amazing park with swings and slides that was great and pretty empty in the mornings. I will definitely come back to this house if I'm in South Haven again. The owners are extremely responsive and make sure you have everything you need.

Beautiful home!!! Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was immaculately clean and not a single detail was left out, even with some extra special touches:). The home is better than pictured, is walking distance to the kids park and beach, and just a short drive to town. The home owners were easy to work with and responded quickly. I would definitely rent this home again!!

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for Mother's Day weekend and we loved it here. The house was gorgeous and very clean. The beach is a very close walk and it's not too far to walk downtown to all the shops. The owners were the best owners we have ever dealt with (we rent often through VRBO). Their hospitality was fantastic and very thought out. They thought of every little detail and we couldn't be more happy with our stay. The screened in porch was great for morning coffee listening to the birds. We sat outside in the back yard at night and could hear the waves and the sound of frogs. It was truly a relaxing vacation. I have already thought about when we will be returning to stay here. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a wonderful getaway close to Lake Michigan.
