Area Information

This a quiet heavily wooded residential area off Marquette Woods Road, exit 23 off I-94. Our home is one of the few remaining true updated cottages, which is on a large over 1/2 acre lot. There is a children's swingset play area in the back yard and patio area for grilling. A Mosquito Magnet repels most mosquitos so you can enjoy being outdoors in the summer months without getting eaten alive. There's a firepit and gas grill available as well as comfortable outdoor furniture and tables.

The homes between ours and the lake are a mix of tear-downs/million dollar rebuilds, custom lake homes and updated traditional cottages or wooded lots. Our road is paved, but most leading to the beach are not paved. St. Joe's quaint pedestrian mall and quaint downtown restaurants and shoppes and Silver Beach are about a 10 minute drive away. Harbor Country, antiquing, outlet mall shopping and wineries are all within 20 minute drive.

Great place for Girlfriends weekend

Owner's reply:

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.

Family Vacation

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.

Owner's reply:

Amy,
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!

Great vacation!!

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

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.

Owner's reply:

A Perfect Place for our family vacation!

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!

Janet Robinson

Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:How close is Lake Michigan to your property?
A:Lake Michigan is 2 min. drive- 1 mile to Lincoln Township beach with parking at beach, more level entry, gazebo for shade and portapotties to allow you to spend all day. There's private access beach on Lake MI just a 3 block walk the area is low traffic, wooded and very relaxing, but close to stores, restaurants and parks.
Q:Why do our guests come back year after year?
A:Our home is not an architectural marvel. It takes you back to midwestern roots and the good ole days. It's like your Grandmother's home that's been updates with newer super clean baths and conveniences (dishwasher, washer/dryer, in-home internet, TVs all over, movie and music library, games, older bikes, bocce, badminton, swingset, kids play house etc). We've kept the original hardwood floors and bumped out walls to make it more open with good circulation. There are great quality pillowtop mattresses, high thread count linens, good quality towels, beach towels, and well equpped kitchen with partyware, table cloths etc for picnicing inside and out. We have beach gear, coolers, umbrella etc you can borrow and bring back. There are gas, smoker, weber grills for your use and lots of lawn furniture. There's a kids' swingset for kids up to 7-9 and 1/2 acre yard to use to pay and romp. The firepit is great to sit around at night and tell ghost stories or reminesce about your childhood at the beach or do impromptu talent shows.
