Cheer Up Cottage is the quintessential Summer Beach Cottage...Located right on North Beach with no steps or bluff to navigate on your way to the Lake. Stroll to the sandy shore in less than 30 seconds. The cottage is tucked away in a quiet spot off the Promenade. With fabulous views of the Beach and Lake it will dazzle you with it's casual, seaside style.

The all in one Kitchen and Living areas provide great spaces for family and friends to gather, sharing lively conversation and great food.

Cheer Up Cottage sleeps 7 in 3 bedrooms. 1 bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd a double bed and the 3rd bedroom has bunkbeds with a queen on the lower bunk and twin above. A laundry facility is included for your convenience.

Outside. The spacious deck, with smashing views of the Lake and North Beach, provide lots of room for alfresco dining, watching kids at play or just enjoying the beautiful Michigan weather. On the side is a grassy area, perfect for yard games and storing bikes and water toys.

Cheer Up Cottage is Bright, Spacious, Tastefully Decorated and Impeccably Clean!

Our quiet coastal town is steeped in Maritime traditions. The Maritime Museum and our very own Tall Ship, Friends Good Will, is just a short stroll away. Be sure to make a reservation on Friends and sail the greatest of the Great Lakes.

South Haven is a unique place, paced by the relaxing rhythm of the sea. It's chock full of family activities: trendy restaurants, river side pubs, water sports, parks, our old-fashioned movie theater and expeditions up the Black River.

After a day on our glorious beaches, world class golf courses or shopping in our quaint town, walk to the harbor wall, listen to live music from across the River, and watch the flickering harbor lights.

Beach, Sea and Endless Michigan Skies Sum Up the Simple Joys of South Haven.

Don't delay! Plan you Summer Holiday today and put a little South Haven Joy in your Life!.

Your View of North Beach from Cheer Up Cottage. That's Lake Michigan Out There!
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Awesome updated cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great updated cottage in historic Monroe Park on North Beach. Loved the 2 bathrooms and spacious kitchen. Deck was amazing with view over open lot. Manager of property was very helpful in making our stay great. Very short walk to North Beach down Promenade - easy with a 9 year old and all of our beach stuff. Easy walk daily into town and Captain Lou's for perch dinner. Very clean and just as expected. Can't wait to return!!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear Cheer Up Cottage exceeded your expectations. You were great guests, too! It's hard not to enjoy this area of South Haven. Just a short level walk to the beach. And a short stroll into town. The Anack Shack just up the beach is fun too. Cheer Up is so clean, so cute and so convenient to all South Haven has to offer. Thank you for choosing the cottage for your Summer holiday. Hope to see you next year! Many thanks, Debbie

Love this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is so very close to the beach, nicely updated with a well stocked kitchen, and Debbie was absolutely wonderful to work with! We have rented through VRBO often, and the kids have declared this as their favorite vacation spot! We'll definitely rent this cottage again.

A view that can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Lake Michigan. We picked the perfect place to stay. The cottage has an amazing view of the lake and the sunsets each evening were breathtaking. We stayed with our three boys (20 mos, 6 and 8 yrs. old) and they loved being so close to the beach. Hours were spent digging in the sand, playing in the water, and looking for sea glass. We also walked to town where we found amazing shops and restaurants and super parks for the kids. The local ice cream shop was a fast favorite!

The cottage had plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to make great meals for the family. We often ate outside on the porch to enjoy the beautiful views. Cheer Up was a fantastic choice and we are so glad we traveled to South Haven. Our family is looking forward to booking again next summer as they were very helpful and accommodating. Great family memories were made!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear you had a fantastic time while at Cheer Up Cottage! We try to make it THE best, 5 star cottage on North Beach. What a perfect cottage and location for a family vacation. And when the kids are a little older they can walk to the Sugar Shack, right on North Beach, for ice cream...without their parents! Many thanks for choosing Cheer Up Cottage for your Summer Holiday. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful family. See you next Summer!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to South Haven and we loved it! Debbie was amazing at answering our questions and telling us what we should check out. The cottage was within walking distance of town, shops, and restaurants and only steps away from the beach. The best part was sitting on the porch and watching the beach sunsets in the evenings. The house was clean and very well stocked. The only reason I give the cottage a 4 out of 5 is for the price. We have never stayed in Michigan before but we are use to paying that price for a beach house with more space (not necessarily bedrooms though).

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful family! Cheer Up is the perfect cottage in the perfect location. Great Views of the Beach from the back deck and living areas of the cottage. No steps or bluff to navigate on your way to the Lake. Just a 30 second, level walk and your toes are in the sand! Beach property is more expensive than cottages off the beach. And when the cottage has the views and location of Cheer Up travelers can expect to pay a little more. Actually the rental rate is competitive with other cottages on North Beach. South Haven offers many wonderful cottages tailored for many different budgets. We hope you return and enjoy the various options our town offers. Many thanks.

Wonderful Time in a Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in South Haven at the Cheer Up Cottage! It's charming and has been updated on the inside. Fully furnished with plenty of kitchen utensils! We brought our 2 daughters (4 years and 5 months) for a week stay. Our 4-year old LOVED picking out her own room - it was purple and absolutely darling! We walked to the beach and to North Shore. Loved the beach and the view! Would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy we could make your vacation experience a great one! Thanks Heather. Cheer Up Cottage has the PERFECT location. Incredible views of North Beach and the Lake. Totally renovated inside and out with all the amenities the traveler expects. The cottage is within walking distance to all South Haven has to offer. Just take a short stroll to the beach, the North Pier, River Walk and right into downtown South Haven. What could be better? Cheer Up Cottage. So Comfortable, so Clean, so Convenient!
