MichiMonaMac Lakeshore Cottages

337 N Shore Drive , South Haven, MI 49090-1012 USA (Show map)


An idyllic vacation, spent in a cozy cottage on the shore of Lake Michigan - just the antidote for the hectic pace of daily life. MichiMonaMac, a lovingly refurbished lakeshore retreat with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere will make you feel like you never want to go home. Perfect for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, our cottages offer a glimpse of the best of Michigan. These Cottages are located on the Golden Mile in South Haven, a stretch of white sand beach as lovely as any -- anywhere. From this location, you can walk to parks, to the corner store to get an ice cream cone, to the marina to watch the boats come and go or downtown to choose between restaurants, shops and a first run movie theatre. Back at the cottages, summer finds our guests playing basketball in the parking lot, roasting marshmallows over a beach fire, relaxing in the hammock or taking a rented bike on the 34-mile Kal-Haven bike trail. In the cooler months, come for fall colors or snuggle up with a good book by the fire while Lake Michigan puts on a show. Come join us in beautiful southwest Michigan!

Great relaxing vacation at a cozey cottage

4.8 on December 11, 2011

The people are so friendly, attentive and concerned about our comfort. The grounds were clean, set up for a family to use th grounds without much effort. The walk from the rooms tothe lake was about 30 seconds, as it was right out our door! This was SO convenient with having very young kids, who needed naps. Great place and we'll return.

A wonderful beachfront spot!

My stay in August was a wonderful experience. Kathy is a great hostess...the place was spotless, the other guests very inclusive when you were out on the deck. The walks on the beach are wonderful, the sunsets spectacular!

Even Better the 2nd Time

Kathy McDonald knows how to take care of her guests and if anything, my most recent stay at her Michi-Mona-Mac cottages was even more fun than last time. I can't say enough about this terrific vacation rental. Casual atmosphere, beautiful views and interesting people. I can't wait to go back.
