Third Coast Cottage

Peak Season: Sunday to Sunday weekly rentals

Tucked in the trees on the shores of Lake Michigan, you will love the private setting of this homestead. The tree-sprinkled lot leads to your private bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Relax with a beverage as you take in the colors of the daily evening sunset with the crashing of the waves as your background playlist.

The property is a bohemian inspired delight. The upper level is open with soaring ceilings and views out to the lake. The open living and dining wrap around to the equipped kitchen. Make a meal at home or warm up your leftovers from last night. This entire space boasts new flooring and fresh paint. The bathroom on this level was recently expanded into a full bathroom and has all new finishes.

From the living area, head out the glass doorway to the covered deck with lake views. This is the ideal place to sip your morning coffee and plan your day of adventures.

Head downstairs to the ground level where you'll find all new space. Recently converted into 3 queen size bedrooms and a spacious full bathroom. Everyone in your group will have a comfortable retreat at the end of the day.

Completed remodeled in 2018, this home has all new floors, bathrooms, walls, furniture, and decor. This space is comfortable and offers amazing views.

If you're looking to explore the area, there is plenty to do nearby. Head into downtown South Haven where you can explore all the shops, galleries, and eateries. From breakfast at Never Miss Cafe to drinks on the Idler, and finishing the day with ice cream at Sherman's Dairy Bar, there is something for everyone's taste. During the warmer months, explore one of the many parks. During the colder months, test out your balance at the local ice-skating rink. If downtown is a bit too busy for your tastes, there are several local farms for fresh produce and antique shops where you can search for a new treasure.

However you decide to spend your getaway to Michigan, this wonderful cottage is a great place to call home.

Please Note
  • Due to high water levels, there is no direct access to Lake Michigan from the property. We recommend visiting North or South Beach in South Haven.
  • There is no central AC. There are wall AC units in each of the bedrooms and there are ceiling fans upstairs. If you open the windows, there is a great cross breeze from the lake.
  • There is a Fire Stick and YouTube TV for your enjoyment. You can also use your account to login to a selection of other apps.
  • This home is on a well and does not receive city water. It is safe to drink, but those not accustomed to well water may prefer to bring bottled water for drinking. There is high mineral content in our area and white/light colored items, including the household linens, washed in the home's washer may present an orange tinge.
  • This home is on a septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper. Single-ply and septic safe toilet paper work the best. Flushing other items, such as feminine products, will cause a sewage backup.
  • This home is tucked in the woods along the lake. It is common to see animals, mice, and other vermin. The property is serviced monthly by a professional pest company, but sometimes vermin do sneak in. Please let us know right away if you see evidence of anything inside and we will send out pest control. No rate adjustments can be made for vermin in or around the house. Make sure to keep the doors closed at all times or the wildlife may let themselves in. You may find spiders, webs, and ants inside as they welcome themselves in.

Mill Pond was amazing! My friends and I had a great experience, loved the decor of the house and the view was spectacular. Would recommend to others!

Everyone in our group loved this house and definitely hope to be back. The view of the lake from the back porch was incredible the perfect place to sit in the morning with coffee or in the evening to watch the sunset. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen equipped with the necessities, and the bathrooms are lovely. I would just be careful if you have small children or pets as the drop-off at the edge of the property over the lake is unprotected.

REALLY great spot if youre looking to be out of the hustle and bustle of South Haven and Saugatuck. Sunsets were incredible in the backyard, the deck was stylish and comfy, and the main indoor level felt open and welcoming. A few millipedes got into the basement where the bedrooms are - that is my only gripe. Overall would highly recommend!!

The property was amazing. The grounds were a perfect mix between a forest and beach backgrounds! Oh, these sunset views over the magical! The house was beyond what I have imagined! Great functional kitchen and all kinds of other spaces to sit, meditate, read and get together with family. We loved the outdoor patios & the fire pit! Oh, the French/country/bohemian decor - so pretty, functional, comfortable and even the dishes - the set was so pretty and fictional. Everything had a nice touch from the soft towels to the comfortable beds and linens! The house was so clean and pleasant to walk into! We dont wear shoes in our house and we felt right at home because the house was so clean! The Mill Pond Realty team were so great and welcoming. We came to Michigan with the intention to relax for a few days and Mill Pond Realty really delivered their part and beyond. I felt talking to an old friend who really cared that we felt good and right at home. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
