Wonderful location, with all the amenities!

> Staying in your cottage, we enjoyed a bonfire in your fire pit on Friday, and
rode bikes on Saturday, Sunday,and Monday. Lots of fun to just ride and ride up and down the streets and look at all the cute houses. We were also happy to be so close to town and able to walk to shops and restaurants, very little need for our car. The kids took over the loft area, and liked having "their own space". Thanks for your great communication and for allowing us to have a
memory filled weekend in your quaint little town! Our only complaint was that we would have liked to stay longer! But three nights was a good start, next time....a week! Thanks! Patti & Tim

Great week!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in this appropriately labeled "cheerful beach bungalow!" It's conveniently located several blocks from the beach and downtown. My granddaughters (2 and 4 years old) claimed and loved the upstairs room under the roof. The kitchen had all the conveniences and we used the screen porch and back deck a lot. The fire pit was fun too. And the garage has a nice grill as well as a variety of bikes, sand toys, floating stuff for the water, some kind of paddle board we didn't even take out. Cozy, comfortable and cheerful - it was terrific!

Fun! Fun! Fun!

My family rented this home this summer and everything was perfect. What a dream! The owners are very nice and easy to do business with. The house looks like it may be small in the pictures but I felt it was very roomy. Everyone had their own space and privacy. The teenagers took over the upstairs space with the multiple beds and extra mats and bedding available. This was the first vacation that all the teenagers weren't on their laptops and game systems nonstop, as they enjoyed the bikes and the ability to walk to the lake and downtown which had cute shops and restaurants. Would recommend the Black River boat cruise as that was well worth the few dollars it cost and the sand dunes ride at Saugatuk was worthwhile as well.

Huard Family stay July 20

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay at Four By the Shore and would recommend it to our friends/family. The location was perfect as it was a very short walk to the beach and town. We were positively surprised on how clean and roomy the cottage was. We also enjoyed having all the amenities available to use (I.e. Bikes for all family ages, fire pit, chairs, wagon etc). Our 3 year old loved the cozy, fun upstairs bedroom. We look forward to a visit next Summer!

3rd time is a charm

  • 4 of 5
This was our families 3rd time at this location in the last 5 years. We love South Haven and all it has to offer: Blueberry picking, South Beach, Kids Corner, Movie theater, shops and restaurants and Friends Goodwill tall ship. The rental was perfect for our needs, roomy upstairs for our three kids and nice separate 1/2 bath (for our teen). Garage was handy for dropping off beach gear and bikes (we brought two for our little ones but there are plenty of others available for everyone else). The kids loved making smores and catching fireflies and playing games in the expanded yard. The outdoor shower with hot/cold water was perfect for cleaning the little ones after a nice day at the beach. The screened porch was great for relaxing in the morning and evenings (without worrying about mosquitoes).
