Guest Reviews

Very nice ... but ... only 1 small bathroom with NO exhaust fan, very pricey by New Guest 09/02/2017
Very nice place to stay, cute little bungalow, but relatively pricey. The worst part is home away charged a service fee and I'm the one that found the property. John from "Be Our Guest" was the best, next time I'll call him direct and avoid the service fee charged, realistically the owner should have paid for it as it helps "them" have greater opportunity for bookings. Owner didn't return security deposit for 5 days.

Beach was great, be prepared to climb about 75 stairs down to and up from beach, which was just down the road. Adjoining neighbor by fire pit had an obnoxious barking dog.

The bungalow was very nice, comfy and charming ... we loved the upstairs bedroom ... but again only 1 small bath and well water (egg smell) ... for 4 days it was overpriced considering the area and setting It is not "on the beach" nor can you see it ... beach is private but high water levels made you walk a bit to a space with nice sand to lay down and enjoy !! Again, if you have physical limitations, the stairs up and down were the worst

All in all it's what you make of it ... but not worth what we paid for, 4 noburs premium rate, cleaning fee, Home Away service fee and taxes ... Be Our Guest Response: HomeAway and most other major rental sites are now charging guests fees from 8% to 15% just for booking from their sites. We are very against this since we also pay to advertise on the site. Managers and owners never see any of the fee and must rely on the websites to refund that fee. We returned the security deposit in 5 days even though our contract says we have 10 days. Since the property is located on a section of Lake Michigan where there are high bluffs, stairs are necessary to access the beach and our description actually tells you the number of steps. Thank you for being our Guest and your feedback is important to us.

Clean and well-appointed. Not the greatest location. by PK 08/10/2017
House was well-appointed and clean. Location leaves something to be desired ..near busy road and no place to take a long walk or run. Opening the windows showed lots of dead lady bugs. Nice beach access though and close by restaurants and near St. Joseph.
Great Place by JD 08/03/2017
This home was in a great location to silver beach and plenty of fun things to do for the family! Plenty of rooms and a great size house for our family of 4! Only complaint would be a more comfortable couch like a sectional for the family to all sit together comfortably
Terrific Getaway by MH 07/29/2017
A beautifully kept house that allowed our group of 6 to sleep and relax comfortably. We enjoyed the local beaches, sunsets, and blueberry picking! Would definitely return.
We had a wonderful time at Key Cottage. by RG 08/11/2016
We had a wonderful time at Key Cottage. It was very clean and well kept. Our family of five had plenty of room and had some much needed "together time". Remembering the important things in life. Thank you for a great place to stay and hope to visit again in the fall if available.
Thank you very much for a relaxing stay at Key Cottage. by AS 08/16/2013
Thank you very much for a relaxing stay at Key Cottage.
We called it our stay-cation since we are from the area and had guests for the week at our home. I left two of my wine glasses from my gallery for your to keep and let guests use as I didn't find any here. Thank you again AS
Stayed here mid October for a long weekend get-away from the rat race. by Roxie 10/14/2010
Stayed here mid October for a long weekend get-away from the rat race. What a pleasant surprise. Looks like a little cottage from the outside, but inside is very roomy, but cozy. Good size rooms were welcoming. Nice wood burning stove in living room was plenty warm enough to heat the main floor during the cool evenings - didn't need the furnace. At the end of the street was a private beach for the 10 or so residents (homes)of the street. It was warm enough during the day we could sit out on the patio. HUGE side yard provided lots of space for activities. Just a nice, quiet, comfy place to relax. I'd love to go back this summer to enjoy the beach in really warm weather.

We found this cozy home had all the amenities we were looking for and more.The location gave us the ability to travel short distances to such places as South Haven, Saugatuck, St. Joseph, & Benton Harbor the home of a new Jack Nicklaus golf course community.The wooded area around this home showed us all the brillance of fall colors that we came to see.We ended our romantic evenings with a fine bottle of wine which we purchased during our visit to St.Julian's winery sitting by the warmth of a wood burning fireplace.
This charming cottage is just steps away from a beautiful private sandy beach on Lake Michigan. by EB 09/11/2010
This charming cottage is just steps away from a beautiful private sandy beach on Lake Michigan. The unit contained all the amenities of a home and is situated on a quiet wooded lot. We were able to entertain overnight guests in the extra bedrooms. The onsite laundry is great. We enjoyed eating and shopping in the nearby towns of St Joseph and South Haven. Also, there are some nice golf courses nearby. We will definitely stay here again.
