WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED our stay at Lakeside Haven! The house was spotless, updated and decorated in nice colors reflecting a nautical/coastal theme. My husband and I liked having the main floor bedroom and bath, while brother, sister-in-law and their two kids had their own bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The layout was really nice and comfortable, with many windows that allowed for lots of sunlight coming into the house! The screened-in front porch was peaceful and wonderful for watching the neighborhood activities, reading and relaxing. The area is popular with families looking to stay close to the beach. We saw parents and their children walking, biking, skateboarding and pulling wagons up and down the neighborhood streets . . . it felt like a step back in time! There is also a nice back deck and yard which was great for the kids to play. The location was perfect and close to Kid’s Corner (4 blocks), the beach (3 blocks) and town (6 blocks). We brought our bikes and used them to go everywhere - the town is so quaint and very bike friendly! The shopping and restaurants in South Haven exceeded our expectations. The owner was very nice and friendly, she was helpful in answering all my questions and she responded to my emails quickly. The entire rental process couldn't have been smoother, including the prompt return of my security deposit. South Haven gets our vote for “Michigan’s perfect summer beach town”! The kids keep asking when we’re going back to Lakeside Haven . . . not soon enough!!

Owner's Response: This review encompasses it all - from reading it you can get a feel for the layout of the house and it's location in the town. My listing describes what the home is like but reading it from people who rented the house and thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of what the house, the town and the flavor of the area have to offer gives an accurate description of living there for a week. Of course I want everyone who inquires about my home to rent it, but if it's not a good fit I will always tell potential customers that no matter where they stay in South Haven they will love it.

GREAT HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were extremely happy with this rental and the location. It was a straight 4 block walk to South Beach and an easy walk to town. We didn't use the car once all week. The home was well maintained and clean. We also always had good communication from the owner. A+

ONCE AGAIN A GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week this summer at Lakeside Haven with my sister and brother, and had a wonderful time! Walked to church, to the beach, to the pier and lighthouse, the harbor on the Black River, and to shopping and to restaurants in the downtown shopping district. This wasn't the first time my husband and I stayed at Lakeside Haven. It was actually the first place we rented with our kids and their families about 7 years ago. Then we rented it once more after that, and then this year. The house was very clean and had every thing we needed. Bedrooms were very comfortable. Especially enjoyed having coffee on the screened in front porch in the mornings, and dinner out on the porch every night. The owner was friendly and very easy to work with every time we rented. One of the first places we went to was Black River Books, which we all loved. On Wednesday went to the Farmer's Market which was phenomenal. Bought fresh vegetables for our meals at the house. Went back on Saturday when we were leaving town to pick up blueberries, Polish bagels, and anything else we could fit into the car to bring back home to the rest of the family. South Haven is our very favorite place to vacation. It is not too bad of a drive from mid Missouri, and it is so relaxing. Perfect vacation for the whole family, young and old. Would definitely rent from Lorie again.

Owner's Response: As the property owner I consider myself quite lucky to have customers who return to vacation @ Lakeside Haven. I also appreciate my clientele who notify me of any problems they come across as fixing things in a prompt manner is always better. South Haven is a wonderful vacation town and the natives are extremely friendly. There are plenty of different things to do in and around the area or if you choose to do nothing it's a peaceful town to just laze around in. I think the atmosphere of Lakeside Haven definitely reflects what the area has to offer.

VERY NICE, PRACTICAL AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at this cottage. It is a very quick walk to South Beach and an equally easy walk to town. Our daughters enjoyed playing with the provided puzzles and games. There is a nice master bedroom and bath on the main floor and two additional bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The owner was very responsive and we got our deposit check back immediately. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks for opening your home to our family!

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This property is a perfect place to getway from the big city. The house is cozy and at the same time spacious. Everything we needed was provided. Walking distance from the beach and main street made it a perfect location. The property was clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend staying here.

EXCELLENT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
I would be very happy to stay here again. The house is cheerful and comfortable, and was scrupulously clean. It's a nice area for walking, and beautiful South Beach is close by. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. Plenty of room; everything was as advertised. We appreciated the selection of puzzles, children's books, etc.
