The Little House is a summer house only with no central source of heat.

The Little House

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the beach and South Haven area. The little house was perfect except for the couch (futon), was not comfortable at all! We had a great time exploring Lake Michigan shores and looking at light houses at the different harbors with its shops and restaurants.

Very Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The little house is just as described... Very cute and cozy. The space is perfect for two people. We had our two-year-old with us which worked out, but it may be a stretch for a family with more than one child. It is right on the beach. You can listen to the waves crash at night, walk to the bakery in the morning, and just enjoy the scenery. It is right across from the play equipment on North Beach which we loved for obvious reasons. Don't be surprised when you arrive and the space is very small, but if you're there for the beach you won't care. The patio is large which is perfect for dining alfresco. Pack light and enjoy!

great location

Karen is a great host! And we so appreciate being able to have our pets with us. So many places don't allow that. Thank you again. Barbara

This is a very tiny house! But if you love the beach its perfect !!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very tiny but the location makes up for it! Sand outside your front door what more could you ask for! Updates are definitely needed but it's a beach house! If you have never been to South Haven the beach is absolutely beautiful!! And Karen is great:-)

Amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the little house for 3 nights and it worked perfect for us. The blueberry festival was that weekend and we loved being so close to it all. It was so convenient to not have to pack up the whole house to go to the beach. It is literally across the street! Very helpful with a 4 year old. House is very tiny, but we knew that going in. Location makes up for it. Our daughter stayed in the main room because the only tv is in the front. Futon was a bit hard to sleep on with two adults, but it wasn't terrible. Driveway was covered by sand, but my husband shoveled it. We could have bought a beach pass for not too much $ but the parking lot was packed all 3 days so that wouldnt have been convenient. Only recommendations are a newer pull out couch ( which owner already said in a previous post she is replacing in the fall) and maybe a small mounted tv in the back room. Overall, we had a blast and for sure would recommend! Thanks!! :)

Owner's Response: Thx, Emily, for your response and suggestions!! So glad you had a good vacation there!! Thx for shoveling out the driveway! I do that at the beginning of the season and when I periodically go up there, but the winds off of the Lake make it difficult to control!! Hope you return as a guest next year!!

What an adorable little cottage! The location can't be beat! A bit of sand in our shoes but hey, it's the beach! Just charming.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, and so happy you enjoyed your stay, Lucy!! We try our hardest to do "sand control", but as you said "you're at the beach" and it just seems to follow you no matter how hard you try to keep it on the outside!! Have a great rest of your summer!! Best, Karen😎�🏖�😗�
