Truly charming from top to bottom, this four bedroom, two bathroom cottage has plenty to offer for that perfect vacation, any time of year.

Nestled on a private lot overlooking Lake Michigan, this is the ideal location to relax and indulge in the peace and quiet of south west Michigan’s lakeshore area.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the huge glass enclosed porch which provides amazing views of Lake Michigan during all four seasons.

Located in the small community of Glenn, Martha's Cottage is located 15 minutes away from Saugatuck/Douglas, South Haven, and downtown Fennville. From local farms with fresh produce to boutiques full of unique treasures to fine and casual dining, there is something for everyone only a short distance away. 

Whether you are grilling on the deck while the kids play Frisbee in the yard, relaxing on the sand while the clouds float by, or sipping a cold glass of lemonade while watching the sunset on the swing, you will never forget the time you spent at Martha’s Cottage.

Please Note:
  • There are approximately 100 steps down to Lake Michigan.
  • Beach conditions change daily. Due to high water levels, there is less beach than usual.
  • The beach is very rocky in this stretch of the lakeshore. We have fun looking for fossils in the rocks!
  • Cell phone coverage is not the best right on Lake Michigan. The best spot for reception is in the upstairs bathroom - really! There is a landline phone at the cottage that can make local calls and receive long distance calls.
  • This home is on a well and septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper.
  • Due to the high iron content in the water, the white laundry can sometimes have an orange tinge. If you notice light orange spots on the laundry, this is from the hard water. There is a water softener to help.

Marthas Cottage is a well-maintained property. The owner/property managers planned for practically all that guests might need during their stay. We are a family of 8 adults and 2 children and we had a wonderful time! We will definitely be back!

We loved every minute of our stay at Marthas Cottage. It was the perfect setting for a family. Our toddler loved playing in the sand, the back yard, and picking berries at a nearby farm. The vistas were gorgeous, especially the sunsets. Beachside Rentals made it very easy for us by setting up a toddler bed and crib before we arrived, ensuring our newborn had a swing too. Mill Pond Realty was GREAT to work with and we would highly recommend them to friends and family.

Generally speaking we were very pleased with our stay. The house was as advertised, which is important. The kitchen was fully equipped. The games, beach umbrellas and chairs, etc were all much appreciated. We all very much liked the location, view, beach, screened porch and yard.

We thoroughly enjoyed the week. The layout of the cottage was efficient and comfortable. Loved the lake view with both a deck and screened in porch. I worried about the steps being too steep and hard to maneuver, but found it much easier than expected. Laundry was in a good spot.

Beautiful view! The back sun room with so many sliding doors and especially that it had sheers. The pots and pans were in good shape.
