Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in St Joseph, Michigan
A home with all of the amenities
July 14, 2015
We stayed here for 4 nights and found the home very comfortable and the neighborhood mellow. They have everything you would need plus more. As soon as we walked in it reminded me of my grandparents home near Lake Michigan. As far as the area a few notes: The only place you would ride a bike is on Notre Dame Ave. There are NO bike lanes so this is not a friendly biking community. At the end of Chicago Ave. (right down the street from the house) is beach access, but not really a beach since most of it is eroded. A nice place to watch a sunset from on top of a dune. NOT accessible for the elderly. Not far from there is another small park you can go to, but once again no beach to speak of. We rode our bikes to Grand Mere State Park and at the end of the trail are sand trails that take you to the lake. We loved it, but not easy to get to. A really hike up and down the dunes but well worth it. We did notice a road with a handicap sign for beach access. Maybe old and young can use it but not sure. You are very close to St. Joseph. Had a nice lunch there and went to Silver Beach. I've been coming to Lake Michigan for 40 years and was very disappointed in how dirty this beach was. Pretty area and nice little downtown too. Saugatuck is an hour drive and South Haven 30 minutes. Both areas worth driving to. Our favorite was the bike trails in South Haven and the beaches. Clean and wonderful. We took the Blue Star Highway on our way back to Stevensville. Nice scenic drive. We would highly recommend the wineries. We never knew how abundant they are. We got our value out of the house and surrounding areas.
Lynne, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Glen's Lake Haven. That's just the feeling we are going for-.old fashioned Grandma's cottage, but with nice linens, conveniences, cable/HBO, internet, a few nostalgic things (wallpaper in bedrooms and original hardwood floors), but updated kitchen and bath. Afterall, if you want icemakers and stainless steel slick appliances, we'd all just stay home! There is so much to do in the area that it's never a dull moment. Thanks for being great guests.

Nice cottage has all amenities of home linen,towels,kitchen items. Home is roomy and we used every part of the home with our large family. Short walk to private beach there is a large bluff to climb up and down. We choose the beach at Township Park location rather then private or short drive St Joseph. Easy access and less people. It is a little rocky but once you go out away it is fine. Did a little fishing down at Mere Park. Nice place to enjoy a family vacation or quick getaway. Owner is very helpful and quick to solve any issues you may have with your stay.
We appreciate you letting others know how much you enjoyed our cottage. My cleaning lady told me what super friendly and resonsible guests you were. You are welcome back anytime. Thanks for the tips to share with other guests about fishing. Yes we agree the Lincoln Township beach is a much easier way to enjoy an afternoon at the beach without schlepping all our beach gear up the bluff. Silver Beach in downtown St. Joe --just a few minutes drive away-- is great.Come again.

Very comfortable home, wonderful screened in porch with swing! All necessities provided such as linens, laundry, dishwasher, owner provided guest book with nearby attractions, great amenities within subdivision including tennis, basketball, playground and private Lake Michigan beach access. Owner was very friendly and responsive to questions, and checked in to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Location is centrally located to neighboring beach towns like New Buffalo and St. Joseph. Great place!
Great place for Girlfriends weekend

Wonderful setting, very cute cottage. beds were very comfortable. The cottage was well stocked. You can't go wrong choosing this cottage!
Thanks much Lisa. We appreciate your kind words. Our cleaning lady was hustling this summer to clean and stock our two Stevensville cottages as we had every week rented for entire summer. We hope you'll be like 80% of our guests and come again and tell your friends and coworkers. This is a charming quiet area close to the Lake and we are so glad our guests love escaping there as much as we do. See you soon.

The house was perfect for our family and it was so close to the beach and Mejier!. The playground out back always was fun for an evening swing. We will be coming back for sure. Only a 3 hour drive from Central Indiana.
What a great photo. We are so pleased that your family enjoyed our lake cottage in Stevensville. We have gotten great feedback and compliments this summer. Seems like our decision to have our handyman rebuild the kids' playhouse was a big hit with lots of kids this summer. Great weather also helps people have a great time at the beach. We go through great lengths to make our guests feel at home and try to provide lots of conveniences to make your vacation relaxing and easy. Thanks.
Relaxing Family Vacation

Our family had a great time at your Glen Haven Cottage! It was very accommodating for our family!! We enjoyed the 'at home' feeling, and spacious rooms! We spent a lot of time at the beaches, and especially enjoyed the Warren Dunes State Park! Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!

We had a fantastic and very relaxing stay at this house. So close to the beach, but still in a quiet neighborhood. We had 4 small children with us and the house served our needs perfectly. Would go back in a heartbeat!
Great family get away
June 25, 2012
This was the first time we rented a house instead of staying at a hotel with my brother-in-law and family. It was great! We had 2 toddlers and a 5 yr old with us. They enjoyed the swing set and bikes. There was plenty of room for the family inside and out. Very close to the beach and grocery. We loved Martins!!!! This was my first time to Lake Michigan and I'm already planning my next trip.
Nice place to stay

A Perfect Place for our family vacation!
July 4, 2011
We enjoyed excellent customer service from Joy as we planned our vacation with our son and family from Virginia at the Glen’s Lake Haven cottage. What you see on their site is what you get—all the comforts of home in a clean/well maintained cottage in a beautiful area. The wash/dryer, dishwasher, highchair, playyard, gates (to close off areas), children friendly areas, DVD/VCR players, and wireless internet access and all the other extras were all a plus. And the close by beaches on Lake Michigan were another added perk to this stay.We thank the owners for sharing this beautiful place!

Great place for us!

We enjoyed our stay at "Glen's Lake Haven." Our grandchildren live 5 miles away so - no matter the weather we enjoyed our stay. It is a clean, welcoming home. The grandchildren stayed with us a couple of nights. Our 5 year old was impressed - toys in the shed and flowers in both bathrooms! We plan on returning!
