Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in South Haven - Serenity Cottage

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Welcome to Serenity Cottage. The name says it all- quiet, private, and secluded, yet close to South Haven’s beautiful beaches and wonderful harbor town. 5 blocks to beautiful First Street Beach and within 2 miles of 5 other great beaches!

Tucked away in the woods, Serenity Cottage has a very open floor plan perfect for entertaining. The cottage has three bedrooms with comfortable beds and two full bathrooms. In addition, there is a “kid’s only” loft- a special place for kids to sleep and play. There are plenty of places to spread out and relax, both inside and out. The cottage has both a living room and family room. The gourmet kitchen is open to the dining area. Just off the dining area is a large screened porch overlooking the woods- a great place to spend time from morning until night. The large deck is another place to spend time outdoors. Because woods surround the cottage, you will most likely see deer, wild turkeys, and woodchucks! The private yard also has a large in-ground fire pit to roast marshmallows and make s’mores!

Walk or ride your bike (2 bicycles provided!) to First Street Beach (5 blocks from house) or take a bike ride or short drive to downtown South Haven (2 miles from house).

Read the reviews and you'll see why Serenity Cottage is the perfect place to spend your South Haven vacation!

The house is all on one level (except for the kid's loft area)

Bedroom Configuration:

Bedroom 1- Queen-size Bed

Bedroom 2- Queen-size Bed

Bedroom 3- Full-size Bed & Full-size Fouton

The house has 2 full baths. Bath 1 has tub & shower / Bath 2 has shower

The highlights of this cottage are the location near beaches and town, wonderful screened porch with new gas Weber grill connected to natural gas line (no tank to run out or replace), and great fire pit!

Escape to Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this property justice. Inside and outside, it is a beautifully property. The open floor plan, deck and patio made it perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Even a rainy day could be enjoyed with the lovely indoor space. We ended up driving to public beaches, rather than hiking to the nearest one. It was great being only minutes from South Haven but being able to escape to the solitude of the forest. We look forward to returning.

Recommend: Lake Perch at Cap't Lou's, Catamaran Cruise on Cat's Meow, Sherman Ice Cream after watching sunset on the pier, Dutchies' Pies.

"Serenity" says it all!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our 20th. wedding anniversary at the lovely Serenity Cottage and couldn't have been more pleased. Leah was so easy and personable to work with and communicated quickly and efficiently with us. The cottage itself was immaculate and well-maintained - a MUST for the both of us when traveling. The layout of the home is so spacious and gave us lots of room to spread out - this gem of a home is deceiving from the outside! It is certainly larger than what it appears. The Master bedroom in the back of the home is breath-taking with all of the large windows facing the lush, wooded property. So serene. But the screened porch may just have been our favorite room of all! We spent many hours out there and always began our mornings there. The potted flowers and plants were a beautiful touch to the deck and porch, as well. We sat by the channel watching the boats,rode bikes out to the pier, walked along the beach, and watched the sunset every night on the beach.....and it was always so nice to end each day by coming 'home' to the Serenity Cottage! Such a great location - close to everything but still private and peaceful. This was the perfect spot for our get-away and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to vacation in South Haven!
