I am a home maker and have become a property manager in the last six years. I enjoy 'meeting' people via the phone and e-mail and occasionally in person at the cottages. My husband and I live in the western suburbs of Chicago and it takes us about 2 1/2 hours to get up to South Haven. We have five children, three of whom are newly married within the last 3 years. We have one daughter at home and one son whom I am still home schooling. We home schooled our older four children all the way through high school which was an invigorating experience! We all enjoy each other's company and get together quite often since they live close-by. We purchased our cottages in 2007 and remodeled them and began renting them the summer of 2008. It has been a rewarding experience and I am the main contact for the rentals. My husband, Alan, is the go-to for repairs and dealing with problems that arise. We do hope you enjoy your stay at the cottages.

The owners were great and easy to work with. We enjoyed their property so much that we're trying their other one in the … See more
