Explore the many reasons to stay at our beautiful cottage in South Haven, Michigan. It's more than the Blueberry Festival or picture-perfect sunsets, more than the best ice cream or the art shows — it's a safe-haven from the rest of the world where time slows down as boats glide past on the Black River, a place where good friends meet for wine tasting and to talk late into the night. It's a place to relax, recharge, and enjoy living for a while! Welcome.
Poplars Cottage is ideally located just off the main beach road, Lake Shore Drive, literally seconds from one of the finest white-powder sand beaches in the U.S. Throughout the summer, the City of South Haven combs the beach of debris to keep it looking pristine. The sun, setting as it does over the lake, often brings with a spectacular color palette that truly must be seen to be believed.
Set amidst this idyllic locale Poplars Cottage features:
A Great Room - A comfortable sectional makes for ideal lounging conditions to read a book, chat with family and friends, or watch some serious television on the 4K LCD with full Dolby Atmos support. Use of our Netflix subscription is complimentary, along with standard Comcast Cable. Or if you're in the mood for some music, an Amazon echo connects to the system with full Amazon Music privileges.
• Three bedrooms have Queen Beds
• One bedroom has a Bunk Bed with a Full and a Twin mattress
All the beds were replaced in 2017 with custom King Koil™ luxury mattresses.
Totally Renovated Bathroom, featuring Spa-Style Shower (wall/hand-held, rain can, and body spray) and heated floors. The six-function spa shower has (a) multi-setting wall / hand-held shower combo; (b) overhead rain-can shower; and, (c) four body sprays; plus combinations of any two. A sheet of genuine, natural onyx is inset within the shower wall, behind shelves for shampoo and soap. Besides having tremendous natural beauty, Onyx is remarkably translucent. We've added a customizable color backlight behind the onyx and a wall-mounted control panel over the sink. To add to your shower experience, turn on the onyx backlighting and watch as it continually changes colors and hues. Of course, no shower would be relaxing if you were to run out of hot water, so we've installed a high-capacity, industrial-style tankless hot water heater for unlimited hot water.
