About Jeff and Ginger Ellis
Ginger and I bought this property next door to us as an "overflow" for family visits. But it sits unused for much of the summer and fall, so thought we would open it up for others to enjoy the peace and serenity of Lake Eleven living.
Jeff and Ginger Ellis purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Jeff and Ginger Ellis chose Bloomingdale
We live next door so we can help with needed items, directions, or places to go! Lake Eleven is sparsely populated and known by the locals as an excellent fishing hole. It is not unusual to see three or four fisherman in the morning mist. The 33-mile Kal Haven trail runs adjacent to the property! Ideal for walking hiking, or bike riding. South Haven is fifteen minutes away. Paw Paw is about twenty. Kalamazoo is thirty minutes away. All have restaurants, shopping and things to do.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property is the last house on the lake, adjacent to a farm. We are the only neighbor! Guests tell us it is not unusual to see a variety of birds, deer, and wildlife drinking at the edge of the lake in front of The Cottage. Freshly painted and renovated, The Cottage is truly a unique place to visit. We hope it is a blessing to you.

Another Great Weekend at the Cottage!
This is our second year staying at the Cottage and it was just as great as last time. Jeff & Ginger are extremely generous and gracious hosts, and we always have everything we need (firewood, kitchen supplies, toiletries, etc.) to have a relaxing stay. The location couldn't be better and the view is killer. We'll back for year 3 for sure!
So glad you guys had a good time! The weather cooperated, the fishing was decent and the swans appeared on cue! We are always thrilled to have our guests return and Ginger was tickled with the gift you left for her. Safe travels and see you next year!
Such a tranquil little cottage, cannot wait to come again next year!
Jeff and Ginger, thank you so much for your hospitality! We so enjoyed every little bit of your precious cottage amongst the woods and glorious lake! We went hiking, biking, fishing, swimming- I was even able to get some sketching in! Our entire family had such a relaxing time- everyone was able to put their darn "devices" away and our days was filled with nonstop fun and real-world action. These days everything is so stressful, it was nice to feel like we were in some sort of magical bubble, at least for a moment! Cannot wait to come next year- oh, and our friends loved the soaps, Ginger!
Peaceful, lakefront location with plenty to do. We stumbled onto a real gem.
This rental comes with a pedal boat, canoe, fishing gear, and a large fire pit. Beautiful lakefront view and lots of outdoor space including a trail. Indoors is very cozy with a gas wood stove for chilly nights. Owners are next door and very helpful. Good for couples, girls' trips, or small families up to six people. Not good for big loud parties. Peaceful, rural location 20 minutes east of South Haven. Lots of helpful extras included. Only thing missing that would be helpful is laundry facilities. Gorgeous property.
Hoping you and Charlie can return next year!
Perfect, relaxing, quiet and clean.
The Cottage was better than expected. Very clean and exceptionally quiet. Jeff and Ginger were perfect hosts and made our stay perfect. Looking forward to returning !
Thanks!! You are always welcome back!!
Sister Trip 2017
Had a FABULOUS weekend exploring South Haven, Saugatuck and Allegan Antique Market. Our stay at The Cottage was perfect. Jeff and Ginger were wonderful silent hosts and the view was so beautiful! Swans came to visit each day, took a paddle boat ride in the evenings and the little gas wood stove was a welcome warmth in the mornings to take the chill out of the air. Very quiet and secluded..just what we needed!
We loved staying here; it's tucked away in the woods and very peaceful.
