Newly Renovated Cottage Near Harbor Shores and Lake Michigan

Holiday home in Benton Harbor with kitchen and patio

Our family's cottage was completely renovated in 2018 in a bright, farmhouse-inspired style. It's located in an old residential neighborhood in Benton Harbor, about 200 yards from the Jack Nicklaus-designed Harbor Shores Golf Course (and the equally-enticing North Pier Brewery and North Shore Inn Restaurant!). A short 10min drive will take you to Jean Klock Beach, Silver Beach, Tscornia and Rocky Gap. In the area you will also find wineries, breweries, antique shops, bars & restaurants, coffee shops, and the infamous Silver Beach Pizza.

You'll find a fire pit and bbq grill outside and a cozy fireplace inside. Our 2-story house is equipped with ample backyard play space, baby gates, pack-in-play, and a few toys for the kiddos...and a drip coffee machine, 50-inch tv, and plenty of ice for the adults. There's a whole house water purifier and the furnace filter is changed frequently. For towels and bedding, we only use fragrance-free detergent and hypoallergenic dryer sheets.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower.

This Benton Harbor property provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Business-friendly amenities include desks and desk chairs.

Girls Weekend
This property was a perfect spot for our girls weekend. It is decorated very nicely and we enjoyed the bonfire pit in the backyard. The neighborhood was a little different than we expected but the house felt safe and we had no issues. Overall, it was great for what we needed and was close to downtown St Joseph and only 30 mins to wineries. Thanks for a great stay!

5/5 Excellent

Fun stay near Lake Michigan beaches
The home was quiet, well appointed, no-frills and close to beaches in a residential neighborhood on a somewhat busy street. We visited Silver Beach and Rocky Gap Beach and had so much fun. We appreciated all the beach equipment and the big bin of toys for our 4 year old. The kitchen was small but had all we needed for simple suppers and picnic lunch making. Big back yard with fire pit and wood was a plus! Thanks for a great stay, we would rent again!

Perfect Family Vacation house with Toddlers
This house was exactly as pictured. My kids loved it and didn’t want to leave. We have 4 little kids and they all loved it. We were so thankful that they had pack N plays available and we were surprised to see toys as well. So many things were very well thought out. The location was great to visit anywhere in St. Joseph and Benton Shores. We loved how close we were to the beaches and parks. Such a great family vacation house.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful cottage
Our family loved staying at this cute cottage! Our three toddlers loved the toys while at the house, and we appreciated all of the beach gear provided. We spent most of our time at Silver Beach and loved what a short drive it was to get there. This home provided everything we needed. We enjoyed croquet in the backyard & grilling out for dinner. The decor and style of this home made it such a comfortable and welcoming home away from home. Communication with the host was easy and helpful! Would definitely stay here again.

Long weekend in St.Joseph/Benton Harbor
We have made multiple trips to the St.Joe/Benton Harbor area over the past few years and just love it. We found this property close to the beach and near to one of our favorite breweries. It was a great home base for our trip. We were impressed with downtown Benton Harbor, as it appears that it is up and coming. Still some tough economic areas, but it was great to see the revitalization. Both Benton Harbor beaches were a quick trip from the house, and we found them less crowded than St.Joseph.
