About the property

5 Bedroom Home, Dog Friendly, Close to the Beach, Located on North Shore Drive

Sweet as can be, "Dandy Cottage" is placed among small stand of mature pines right on North Shore Drive. One house back from the Lake Michigan shoreline, there are partial views from the screen porch, backyard, and even the master bedroom.

--> Please note summer reservations must begin or end on Sunday. Click "More Details" for bed & bath layout and other info you'll find helpful!

Newcome Beach is steps away and downtown South Haven is an easy bike ride or a quick drive away. Read on for a full description and more details you'll need to plan your stay!

Dandy is a true cottage with wood floors, lots of knotty pine, a sweet screen porch with vintage glider and almost feels like an old-time lodge. The living room is spacious for lots of family fun. The kitchen boasts a vintage gas stove with double ovens, pine cupboards, and a sweet breakfast spot.

The main floor offers two bedrooms and a full bath - perfect for those who don't do stairs. A beautiful wood staircase leads to 3 more bedrooms, featuring more of the knotty pine, classic dormer style ceilings, some antiques and vintage furniture pieces. New mattresses, good linens and window a/c units in each bedroom will ensure a comfortable stay even on those hot summer nights.

This large home can accommodate twelve, so during the summer you'll appreciate the completely private outdoor shower to hurry along the "post beach day clean up" process! Newcome Beach is just around the corner, so it's easy to return to the house for a toddler's nap (or maybe your own!). There are multiple beaches in South Haven, so explore on foot or bring your bikes to find them all. Some beaches offer concessions and restrooms, others are much more simple.

Planning a large family reunion? If you need extra space, check out "Coastal Playhouse" at 746 North Shore Drive, #4177313.
