With a gorgeous view and endless hours of fun for all, this cottage stands out among the rest. Its two bedrooms (one full bed and one twin bunk) may seduce you into thinking this cottage is nothing special, stepping into the beautiful sunroom can only confirm the fact that you chose the right vacation location. The sunroom has a light, and open feel and looks out on a beautiful view of Van Auken Lake. While it is tempting to sit in the comfortable air conditioned inside and read from our mini library, play a thrilling board game, watch a movie or TV, or simply breathe in the beauty of the rural landscape, the outdoor activities beckon you outside. A row boat, paddle boat, and two kayaks wait patiently for you to captain across the glossy lake.

A row boat, paddle boat, and two kayaks wait patiently for you to captain across the glossy lake. There are also plenty of fishing poles to reel in that picture-worthy catch that all your friends back home will be jealous of! The bustling tourist town of South Haven with its local shops and beautiful pier and beach is a 15 minute drive away and is always a guaranteed way to enjoy a summer day. Back at your cottage, several yard games call you out of the ordinary and onto the soft grass in the front yard. Once these activities work up an appetite, fire up the grill on the deck for a delicious dinner! But save stomach space for dessert, because everyone will want to finish the day roasting marshmallows around the campfire. Fresh linens and towels await your stay. There is plenty of cookware, dishware, and utensils for you to enjoy, but we kindly ask the premises to stay alcohol free. More

This was such a quiet retreat. The cottage has everything you need to kick back and relax. There were several options to get out on the lake, kayaks, paddle boat, and row boat ( as well as the life jackets) and fun yard games. Then...More
