Early season get away

We stayed at the little house during the spring. It was so nice to have the beach to ourselves! We enjoyed the little house because it was perfectly functional for what we needed :) Warm and cozy!

Small Pet Friendly with Great View!

  • 5 of 5

This may not be everyones cup of tea but it is mine. Dog friendly, across from the beach, nice little back deck area. Great neighborhood and Karen is a wonderful hostess! The place is small and the bedroom in the back feels a bit like a cave. South Haven is a great city with the light house and harbor and wine country all around. I enjoyed my stay!

The little house with a BIG view was just that, a tiny house, with an amazing view.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I are not fussy people, so this little place was perfect.

We found it to be quite cozy. It was clean, and had everything you need.

We did not use the pull out sofa as a bed, even as a sofa it was lumpy, just old and tired. But we didn't come to sit on a sofa, we spent our time on the beach.

The shower had AMAZING water pressure, and was very clean. The out door area could use some attention, so I did a little weeding. As a former Girl Scout, we always leave things nicer than we found them. 😊

If you are looking for perfection, keep looking. If you are looking for a cottage on the beach, and a great value... Give this little place a try . Enjoy

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. I am delighted that you had such a wonderful stay and that you found the Little House clean and cozy. If you return next year, and I hope you do, you will find a new sleeper couch in place of the present one, which is retiring due to old age! It is on my autumn "to do" list. In this age of high tech, it is much appreciated to receive a great rating. The best to you and your husband, and may you have a healthy and peaceful remainder of this year. Best, Karen Cagen, owner

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

YOU ARE ON THE BEACH! Beautiful sunsets there for the glory. This part of South Haven has many old Victorian homes and cottages with new structures mixed in. I love the old and creatively adapted. This cottage is small but well designed and perfect for 2 people. There is a sleeper sofa to allow for 4 but I would think it very tight but doable. There is a sitting area in back that gets the morning sun. You are at the beach. There is sand everywhere so plan accordingly. We loved this place and hope to return again next year. The owner allows pets ----a huge factor for us. Although dogs are not allowed on the beach we enjoyed our walks throughout the area. Also, this cottage is only a short walk to what I call the "piddle park" , making it fairly convenient if your pooch needs to go in the middle of the night. We had the good fortune of meeting the owner, Karen, who was a joy to visit with. The area is known for blueberries and hosts a blueberry festival. Karen had some blueberry coffee waiting for us as a welcome gift. Delicious!
