Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect location! Close to the beach, close to the farmers market and all the shops downtown. Parked the car and walked pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. The house was cute, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We got some wonderful fresh fruits and veggies at the farmers market. South haven is such a quaint town with a beautiful harbor. Loved walking the beautiful sand beach, and sitting on the pier watching all the different kinds of boats go in and out of the channel. We took a sunset cruise on the historic fishing tug the Elsie J., and got to view the town and coastline from the water ( a MUST do!) We loved South Haven and our stay at the Captain's Cottage! Shelly, Mark and family.

Great home away from home

We have enjoyed this cottage both in the summer and winter. The location is great. Just three blocks from steps leading down to the beach of Lake Michigan. You are close to shopping, dining, hiking, biking, you name it. The house is well kept and comfortable, great for two couples. You can dine out or cook your own meals in the equipped kitchen.

Weekend stay

  • 5 of 5
We began our weekend adventure in Kalamazoo at the Kal-Haven County Park Trail head. We had packed on our bicycles all that we would need for staying the weekend in South Haven. Since I and my two fellow cyclists are not campers, we had made arrangements to stay at this rental Property. We biked about 13 mIles to Gobles where we had delicious sandwiches at Mancinos and then continued to South Haven.
The Property is in a perfect location - close to town and the Lake Michigan beach. This made it convenient to bike ride or walk every where we wanted to go, especially good since we did not have a car! The house was nice and clean with spacious rooms, comfy beds, and a lovely quiet backyard.
We enjoyed downtown shopping at the quaint stores, a night time walk out on the breakway, and lounging on the beach. Sunday we returned to the bike path and headed back. We biked a total of 76 miles and had a wonderful time. Not bad for three ladies all 50+ years old :)

We Biked to South Haven and rented this house. It was perfect. In close walking distance to the beach, and the center of town. Close to shops, the farmers market, and restaurants, and other activities. The house was well kepted, nicely decorated, comfortable, and had a nice backyard. Would definitely recommend to others.
