The cottage was just what we wanted for our winter getaway! It was comfortable, not just physically, but atmospheric as well. The views of the sky at night, the lake, the property itself. Our dog loved running in the snow and then curling up inside. The biggest delight was the porch...all the windows and it was warm on very cold days. Can't wait to book it again!

We stayed here for a few nights with our dog in early January (brrr) just for a change of scenery and the quality of the heating and insulation was fabulous given the time of year. Despite it being windy and cold at the shoreline, the house could not have been more comfortable. The heated 4-season room on the lakeside of the house is really wonderful and the fireplace was great. Location could not be more convenient and easy to find. It's a super quick little drive to Fennville, Douglas and Saugatuck for anything you need and there's a gas station with supplies and firewood less than a mile from the house. Beds were surprisingly comfortable and everything seemed very clean. A few good-to-knows: The nextdoor neighbors are very close, like within 50 yards and they do have two dogs who we only saw once and they were supervised but off leash in their yard with no boundary between the properties. Was not an issue at all, but important for anyone with one or two dogs to know that you don't have a lot of space in that regard. Other noteworthy thing is that the cliffside/stairs down to the shore is not for the faint of heart, especially when it's windy. The owners clearly take exceptional care of everything and make sure things are secure and safe. But anyone with height or vertigo issues or instability on their feet will likely struggle. Overall, great place for a beach getaway at any time of year.

The rental property was even nicer than the pictures in the as (the lake view and clear weather/sunrise and sunset didn’t hurt!!), the place was clean and well cared for. Everything was well stocked: plenty of pots and pans, sundries and general house supplies. The only request I would have is maybe a later check out on Sunday as it was a bit difficult to get everything packed and leave, mostly because we had such a good time the night before. We certainly hope to book again soon.

This beach cottage sets on top of a hill with fabulous lake views. There is plenty of room for a family to spread out and offers all the comforts anyone would need.

The view alone is worth it- amazing sunsets. We loved relaxing in the Adirondack chairs on the deck below. We loved eating dinner at the picnic table and having bonfires as well.

Really cute house right on the lake. It was perfect for a pandemic-friendly group getaway. The house is definitely cozy for 8 adults but the outdoor space is wonderful. Stairs down to the lake have a small private landing—not exactly a "beach" but perfect for watching sunsets and quick swims when the water isn't too choppy.

This house was very clean and good size. The lake view was awesome and it did have lake access. There are 60 steps, when you get to the top you can feel your thighs burn. It gets better after you do it a couple times or if you are in shape! When you get down the steps there is a nice deck with 2 chairs, looks like this was just completed and is very well done. You can get into the lake at the end of some concrete steps, I would recommend water shoes as there are rocks where you get in. There is sand when you get further into the lake. My 13 year old son did get in without shoes and it wasn’t too bad. All in all this house was a great place to stay. Loved the fire pit and they even provided wood.

The beach cottage was everything we were expecting and hoping for plus more. The property provides the perfect spot to watch the sunset over the lake!! We enjoyed sunset while relaxing at the fire pit. The house had everything we needed for our stay. You know it is good when people start planning to do it again. Thanks
Beautiful house and amazing location. The beach house was perfect. We had an amazing view over Lake Michigan with a different sunset view each night while we were there. The house was perfect and we loved grilling and enjoying fires in the fire pit. We loved our stay at the Beach Cottage. It was a very nice cottage and the views of the Lake Michigan sunsets were amazing and different each night. The cottage was centrally located between South Haven, Douglas, Saugatuck and Holland. We had a great time! Thanks so much.
