“Winter Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

We were in need of a mid-winter getaway and Sweethaven Resort was just what the doctor ordered. Private, quite, neat and clean the Dove cottage served as a most needed retreat for my wife and I. Chuck was a gracious host, full of energy, he was very accommodating and personable. We had such a relaxing time that Sweethaven Resort will definitely be on our repeat visit list.

Sweethaven Resort has become an unexpected tradition for my family. I have now stayed at this wonderful property on five separate occasions; twice with a group of friends and three times with my partner and our two girls (of the Labrador Mix variety). The owners really make you feel at home. The cottages are all cozy and decorated in what I can best describe as "Lake Michigan cottage-style." I have stayed in the Dove, the Cardinal, and the Robin, and all of them are well-appointed with some original furniture created by the owners, hot tubs, and charcoal grills. It is a short drive to Warren Dunes (extremely impressive) and the numerous antique stores and boutiques along the Red Arrow Highway. The property itself is beautiful, with well-maintained, moss-covered trails criss-crossing the ten acre property. I highly recommend Sweethaven Resort!

We have traveled extensively and love smaller, out of the way spots and Sweethaven is the very best we have stayed at in the USA. We were fortunate enough to get booked into "the Dove" cottage. Sweet and neat the cottage has everything you need for a relaxing vacation and also has items you didn't know you needed or wanted. Thoughtful touches like warm throws on the couch to cover your feet or a few décor magazines to browse. The Dove is a one bedroom cottage with an extra comfy bed, a serviceable kitchen stocked with all you need, and an open living area with plenty of seating including a rocking chair nestled around a fireplace. A secluded hot tub on the screen porch is a lovely addition to a relaxing week.

Hosts Chuck and Liz Garasic make sure that everything you desire and expect is at hand and do so with the most charming way you will want to stay for ever or at least come back soon. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Room Tip: There were only two of us so we went for a one bedroom. Larger units are available. We would guess...
