Spacious rooms invite you to settle in, relax and BE on vacation! Master Bedroom (2nd story) has a fullsize deck for hanging out 'above it all'. The deck below, which is off the kitchen/dining area, offers outside relaxation, eating, or watching the kids play in the large back yard. Lake Michigan is a short 2.5 blocks away - with one of the most beautiful sunset views available at the head of the Van Buren St. stairs - which lead down to the beach for lots of daytime fun.
This home is big enough to handle a large family, extended family, combined families or just a group of friends. Watch movies together from our DVD library, or head for Kids Corner Park, downtown shops, restaurants & marinas - all within walking distance. Park your car in the driveway and enjoy the freedom from gas prices!
If you are looking for a larger sized home, beautifully redone, then this is the vacation getaway for you.

Dan and Sarma Ilgenfritz are happy grandparents of 9. Dan is a general contractor and loved rehabbing the Van Buren St. Getaway house. It took 6 years, working in the off season for the complete rehab. Sarma enjoys semi-retirement by managing the vacation rental and taking care of infants at the daycare center.
It is our hometown (we live 3 miles from the location) and South Haven is a great vacation spot, sitting right on Lake Michigan, with great shops, restaurants, outdoor activities, the best Farmer's Market, and really friendly people!
The large back yard has lots of room for our kids & grandkids; we love to lounge on the upstairs deck off the master bedroom - you can really feel the 'getaway' up there; eating together is great fun with enough room for everyone - at the huge family style dining table, spilling over to the attached lower deck when more space is needed. We can walk to the beach, downtown and Kids Corner.
