About Marta Petter

I have an upscale historic house I remodeled and rent in Saugatuck - vrbo.com/444711 and used to live in South Haven so found this wonderful gem across from Packard Park and have remodeled it for upscale rental.

Marta Petter purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Marta Petter chose Southwest Michigan

The location and setting is stellar.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has plenty of windows, separate bedroom and open concept living, dining kitchen and then a nice patio and view of lake and 300 feet of sandy beach just across the street. Great beach walking, sun bathing, swimming, sunsets and all a quick stroll to downtown South Haven. Catalpa trees all around the property too! Private parking too.

Cozy cottage by the shore!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect. Everything we needed for a quiet get-a-way. It was the perfect spot to come home to after a day of exploring. We traveled along the shore of Lake Michigan photographing the beautiful lighthouses. There are several quaint restaurants in town within walking distance with great food and the very friendly people. It was peaceful cottage. Everything we needed to cook meals. The king bed was so comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was awesome. Marta left us a beautiful little gift basket of goodies to start our stay. We highly recommend the property and would come back in a heart beat!

Wonderful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Marta's South Haven cottage was perfect! The cottage was cute and comfortable and had everything we needed. The welcome basket of treats was very appreciated and started our stay off beautifully. Marta gave us a heads up on some road construction, but it didn't affect our stay at all. She even moved us to the larger cottage when there was a problem with our original rental, no additional charge. The beds were comfy and the shower was great. It was a little chilly for biking but having the bikes available was nice. We truly loved the quiet neighborhood at the north end of town. So close to the beach! We will rent from Marta again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, Marta has it all at this beautiful cottage! Everything I could think of that we may have needed she had on hand. Marta was so attentive before the trip and during if any questions came up. The cottage is the perfect getaway for a couple! We will definitely tell family and friends to stay here!

Cozy, comfortable and conveniently located to beach and downtown. Clean and welcoming upon arrival.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is small and cozy. The kitchen is adequately furnished and the amenities are nice. Pretty outdoor space with a fountain. There is satellite TV and a DVD player but we never turned them on.

The bed is a quite comfortable King, but the room is small. There's no space for luggage really. We unpacked, put suitcases back in the car, and made use of some hooks provided for hanging jackets, hats, etc.

We loved having beach chairs and towels provided and a wagon for hauling. You need your own umbrella if you want one. The walk to the beach is short! Just across the street to the park, a deck overlooking the beach and a nice sandy beach.

Although there are 2 adjoining properties, the way the decks are arranged still gives relative privacy. There is some common space for bikes etc. that adjoins the patio, but our neighbors were respectful.

The location is excellent. Just a short walk to the bridge and then to downtown for shopping and restaurants.

Marta was courteous and responsive as we made arrangements. We were greeted by a nice basket of goodies, and the cottage was clean.

This is a great little cottage for a couple looking to get away for quiet time. The small living room is enough space for relaxing to read. The kitchen table and outdoor table give space for games or some work. We enjoyed our stay!

Charming pied a terre in a terrific locaton!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished one bedroom cottage that is part of a larger complex.

Meticulously maintained and included all the necessities for the kitchen, bath and beach.

Great location with a very short walk to the beach.

We will be returning next year!
