(8 traveler reviews)

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 10, 2016
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This house is GORGEOUS!! Our pictures only give you a small peek at the elegance and attention to detail you will find at this rental property. Our guests have commented that our pictures do not do this cottage justice. Large flat screen televisions, iPod docking station to enjoy while lounging in the outdoor hot tub, brilliant hard wood floors, updated appliances...our rental property is sure to amaze!

Unique to our cottage is a great pontoon boat with lake access just 200' away. Lake access is to Saddle Lake, a 300 acre all sports lake (the biggest lake in the area), feel free to bring any jet skis or boats of your own to enjoy during your stay. This pontoon boat allows you to explore the entire lake...load up the crew and take a leisurely cruise or go swimming. Also works great as a

fishing boat.

Great place with water activities to accommodate families of all ages.

  • 5 of 5

Impresed the minute we walked through the door. The property is nicely decorated. Evident that a decorator was involved. Awesome sports memorabilia throughout.

Kids loved the hot tub, kayaks, pontoon boat with the water slide off the roof deck, jumping off the boat roof deck, playing beach volleyball, fishing off the docks. Plenty of small fish so kids can have fun redeeming in fish. I couldn't bait the hooks with bread or cheese fast enough. Unless you want to fish for bass (14 inch plus keepers in the lake) you don't need bait for the little ones to enjoy catching fish.

Evenings were nice to relax in the backyard either dining on the deck or making s'mores with the kids over the camp fire.

So close to South Haven (15 minutes local driving) or Saugatuck (20 minutes on highway) if you want to visit. The family has so much fun at the house and beach that we didn't even feel the need to leave the property.

The only thing I wish the property had was firmer mattresses because of my recent lumbar fusion I prefer to sleep on firmer mattresses.

The property manager Jim was great to deal with. Answered any question even regarding local things to do. Was accessible due to his proximity to the property. Nicest guy you will ever meet. The owner Dana was very kind as well.

Great bargain for what everything we got. We will definitely be coming back for years to come. Awesome family memories to remember for a long time.

Very Nice House

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have stayed here three years in a row and highly recommend it. Property is well maintained and appointed (excellent mattresses!) and you can't beat having a hot tub & boat at your disposal.

A wonderful weekend away

  • 5 of 5

This trip was everything we wanted and more! The pictures of the house don't do this house justice. It's beautiful decorated and very well kept. The family had a great time relaxing in the hot tub and on the lake. We will definitely be returning next year!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about our stay!! The house was perfect with plenty of room and is decorated beautifully. We had family and friends stay with us at different times throughout the week and everyone enjoyed themselves. We had kids ranging from age 2 to 18 and they all had a blast. The beach and boat are a very short walk from the house and the hot tub was perfect. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The caretaker of the home checked in often and was very helpful. Perfect Family Vacation, and would highly recommend to anyone!! We will be back!!!

High quality, great amenities and friendly staff!

  • 5 of 5

This place met all our expectations or exceeded them. House is not on the lake but very close. We had use of a dock on the lake, a pontoon boat and hot-tub. The house was very clean and decorated very well!

We were a group of 8 friends (all couples) in our early 30s and we had a great time lounging on the lake, hot-tub and cooking meals together at the house.

The contact met us at the house and checked in on us frequently. I would definitely recommend this place.

Can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house! It was decorated to the very last detail. My 3 kids had a blast at the lake. It was a relaxing vacation in a secluded setting with downtown South Haven minutes away. Having the use of the pontoon boat was a great bonus! It was hard leaving. We look forward to visiting again. Management couldn't have been nicer. Thank you for the great memories!

Location

Activity and Interests

Summertime in this lake community is great! Saddle Lake is a short walk off the back deck, you'll find a pontoon boat ready for you to enjoy the beauty of this large inland lake!

Take a drive into South Haven for a gorgeous sunset, shopping, delicious dining, sample the baked goods from McKenzie's Bakery or cool off with some of the famous Sherman Dairy ice cream!

A short walk/bike ride from the cottage is the Kal-Haven Trail, a 37-mile walking/biking trail that spans Kalamazoo to South Haven.
