About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with views of Lake Michigan

Steps away from the beach, this fully renovated, light and airy cottage offers lovely water views of both sunrise and sunset.

This highly sought after location is set across from the marina and is just a minute's walk to beautiful North Beach or the channel.

During the peak summer months, we rent on a weekly basis - Saturday to Saturday.

Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail on the front patio while watching the boats navigate the channel. Or choose the rear, fenced stone patio to lounge with a book, or grill a meal, and dine al fresco with a view of the lake.

Just a short walk to down town, you can stroll through the shops, enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at one of South Haven's many restaurants, rent a bike or kayak, or take a horse-drawn carriage ride. The summer's Farmer's Market is full of locally grown bounty and crafts.

This little Peace of Haven offers spacious comfortable accommodations including a pleasant master bedroom with a queen bed, adjacent private bathroom, and access to a small private deck via French doors. The original living room of the house is a large, private, high ceilinged space featuring a queen sized Murphy bed, wicker occasional furniture and access to the front patio. The great room, with views of the lake and access to the rear patio and driveway (off street parking) has a queen hide-a-bed, in addition to living and dining furniture.

The kitchen is fully equipped for those who wish to cook with microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven and a full sized refrigerator in addition to a large selection of pots, pans and other kitchen needs right down to spices in the cupboard.

A flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet, DVD player and a cupboard full of books and old fashioned games are just some of the amenities provided for your entertainment enjoyment.

Beautiful home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spotlessly clean home with views of the beach from the living room and kitchen, as well as the patio. It's a short walk to the sand of my favorite lake ;) The decor is up to date, and there are king sized beds in both bedrooms. It's light and bright, and has 2 pull out couches as well as the 2 other bedrooms. 2 baths make having a family stay very convenient. Clear directions are given to check in and out. A great place!

Excellent! I highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

This rental met all and more of our families needs. It was clean and very well stocked with many accessories including kitchen needs and toiletries. The entire house was as described in photos and even better than photos portrayed. It was a short walk to the beach which was perfect for families with small children. Check-in was easy. I just wish check-out was a little later as we felt a little rushed to vacate by 10 am. All in all it was a wonderful experience and a thoroughly enjoyable vacation. We would definitely return again and highly recommend for similar size families.
