Overview

About the property

Fun, affordable family vacation. Fully equipped kitchen, gas grill!!!

If the dates you are looking for are booked, please take a look at our second rental, 4282463. Stone's Throw Cottage is located just 2 blocks from the beautiful Lake Michigan shore and public beach access. This adorable 2-bedroom, 1-bath bungalow sleeps 6-8 people. It is located within walking distance to the beach, parks, downtown and a biking/walking trail. There is a large backyard for cookouts and lawn games plus plenty of space to park your boat or jet skis! Perfect for families or a Girls' getaway weekend. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and cookware. WiFi, cable, and washer and dryer are included as well. Yard games, hula hoops, jump ropes, beach toys and rafts on site for your use.

If you enjoy fishing, charter one of several boats to go on the big lake, steelhead and perch are abundant. If fishing is not your thing but want to get on the water, consider taking a voyage on a historic 1810 replica sloop named Friends Good Will, or cruise down the river on the Lindy Lou, available through Michigan Maritime Museum. Summer events include Harborfest in June and the National Blueberry Festival in August. Just because summer is over, we still have more to offer. South Haven and the surrounding area will be bursting with fall colors , visit some of the local wineries and take in all the beauty. Kal-Haven trail is nearby for bicycling, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing. Also in the wintertime you can enjoy the outdoor ice rink located downtown under the city pavilion. Festivals aren't just happening in the summertime, the first weekend in February is our annual Ice Breaker event. Lining the streets of downtown are beautiful ice sculptures, there is a chili cook-off, euchre tournament, and a pub crawl. Anytime of the year enjoy a movie at Michigan Theater, movie, pop, and popcorn for under $8, or take the kids bowling at Lakeside Entertainment. So much to do and see, for further information about our city visit South Haven.org. We look forward to making your stay in South Haven as comfortable and fun as we can!

Nice September Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in South Haven and Holland. Stone's Throw was just right for us and our family! Everything we needed was already there and we were close to everything. Kids had a great time at the nearby Kids Corner Park. We will be back!

Family friendly, clean, all the details covered!

  • 5 of 5

Stone's Throw Cottage was perfect for our family of five. Our three young children loved having their own room with bunk beds and enjoyed running around the fenced in backyard. We were pleasantly surprised to find boogie boards, sand toys, and a wagon. No detail was missed in this home--plenty of towels, all the cooking amenities, wine and snacks (so thoughtful!), beds were comfortable, great cable TV package for the kids to unwind after a long, fun time at the beach (which is walkable!).

Greg and Janine were extremely responsive to all emails and helpful in offering many suggestions on things to do in the area. We picked this property based on the numerous five star reviews and are glad we did. We are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Greg and Janine for everything!

Lives up to it's name!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Labor Day weekend and appreciated being so close to everything. We could walk and watch the sunsets every night. The Van Buren Trail is one block away and that took us right to town where we enjoyed the Farmer's Market as well as the annual Arts and Crafts Fair. The cottage is beautifully decorated and clean! The backyard is very big with lots of yard games and places to sit and relax. Greg and Janine were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and other attractions. The treats were also a big hit!!! Thank you for a very enjoyable end to our summer!

Great for a beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at Stone's Throw Cottage. Greg and Janine were very responsive to our needs, and welcomed us with a bottle of wine, blueberry pancake mix, and some sweets. Yum! The home is very clean, beds comfortable, and the kitchen had all the cooking and grilling supplies we needed. The neighborhood is quite and it was nice to have a big, fenced-in back yard where our kids could throw the Frisbee and play bags. There were places to sit on the patio, but since we had six, it would have been nice to have a bigger table outside that seated six so we could all eat in the same place. The inside table had plenty of room though. The kids loved having the beach sand toys, boogie boards, and tubes. We walked to the beach every day and went again in the evenings to watch the sunset. Very relaxing. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Thanks Greg and Janine!

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. We agree with all the other positive reviews of this lovely home. We really enjoyed having the spaciousness of a house while vacationing. It was convenient to all of our destinations, very clean, and the owners could not have been nicer. The backyard and patio was great too. We'd definitely stay again. Thank you Greg and Janine!
