Full view lakeside cottage sits back from lake a bit. South Haven is just a short trip away. There is a corner store but bring your bait because there is no where close by to get anything. The cottage is fully equipped. It is extremely clean and nicely decorated. The owners live next door but you would hardly know they are there. Unless you need something then they appear and handle anything. The cottage has 2 small bedrooms and a fold-out sofa. The master has a full size bed. The bed is very conferable, the sheets are to die for. There is a bookcase full of books to read. If you want to watch TV you can on the modern flat screen. It has a DVD player on the side and you will need to bring some DVDs because there is limited channels available. The second bedroom has bunk beds. There are no closets in the bedrooms but there are hooks to hang your clothes on. The cottage has an open airy feeling thanks to the many windows and the nice size front room. It has a full wall of windows that face the lake, the ceiling is raised and there are 2 ceiling fans. You can either open the windows or use the air conditioner. We enjoyed the cottage so much, that my husband and I are coming back in 3 weeks to relax alone. There are 4 kayaks which my son loved and I fell out of. Also the cottage has a rowboat for fishing and an paddle wheel boat. Life jackets are provided but if you have small children you might want to bring ones for them. I can't say enough good things about this cottage and the neighbors around it. The only thing I would have liked is a table outside to eat at but we will leave wanting to come back.
Had a fabulous time at the Cottage. It was quaint, it was clean and had everything we needed. The lake was beautiful and quiet. I would return again!
Great place very clean! The only downfall was the bed was small and uncomfortable but otherwise would completely recommend. The host is amazing and gave great tips about the area!

This was our first family vacation with our 2 children ages 3 and 6 years old. We really enjoyed our stay at the Van Auken Lake Cottage. The cottage was clean and had every thing we needed. ( besides cloths & food) We enjoyed the Canoe and Kayaks on the water. We really liked the spacious back room where we drank out coffee while the kids watched TV . We hope to come back again sometime.
