South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Ten guests maximum.

This historic landmark building was built in 1927 and originally known as Mendelson's Oakland Hotel. In the 1970's it was converted into two separate residences and the north half provides over 2200 square feet of sun soaked living space. There are four spacious bedrooms (two queen beds, one full bed and the fourth bedroom has two sets of bunk beds) with two completely remodeled full baths.

The Oakland North has been impeccably maintained and boasts all of the original architectural details of a bygone era including ten foot high ceilings, arched double hung windows with true divided lights, original oak hardwood flooring on the entire first floor, stain grade millwork trim throughout with operable transom vents above the second floor bedroom doors. The feeling of the home is truly unique and feels as if you are in a historic turn of the century beach house. The finishes, fixtures and furnishings all add to the overall casual relaxed feeling and remind you that you are 'away from it all'.

We are parents of four young children. We wanted a beach house to escape from the hustle and bustle and focus on family.

Michael Biedermann purchased this house in 2000

Historic Monroe Park is our neighborhood which is directly adjacent to the North Beach on South Haven's North Shore. The key to this location is there are no huge hills nor endless staircases to climb up and down when going to and from the beach. Kind of an important thing to remember with small children and grandparents who want to join you down at the waters edge.

Remember… 'Location. Location. Location.'

We enjoy the easy access to the North Beach as well as the less than ten minute walk to downtown South Haven. Once the groceries are purchased, there is no need for your car again. Even if you do need something from the store, you can walk two blocks to North Side Memories which is a small, privately owned convenience store and deli. We have said it so many times but it is true... once you cross the draw bridge, it feels as though all of life's struggles seem to be lifted. We hope you are able to experience the same feeling!

FAMILY TRADITION

  • 5 of 5
We started a new family tradition with our stay in South Haven. Oakland North was the perfect place! With family members from 3 to 50+, it fit all our needs. Just steps from the beach and minutes from downtown - it was perfect!

TRULY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this house and the location. This was my first time to Michigan and I am so happy that I picked South Haven. I absolutely loved this town and this amazing house. Everything we could have possibly wanted was supplied here, (even the sunshine and fantastic weather). It was so much more than I ever expected. It was very close to the beach and the lighthouse. We walked the beach every day and evening and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. The owner, Michael, went out of his way to make sure we were able to visit South Haven, even though I booked this property at the last moment. I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting South Haven. We can't wait to come back again!! Thank you so much.

OAKLAND NORTH

  • 5 of 5
Could not have been any better than this. Location to everything was terrific. The home was perfect for our family with teenagers and young children. Very comfortable home with everything we needed including a great yard and swing set paly area for the little ones. They spent lots of time climbing, sliding and swinging. We will certainly stay again, hopefully many more times.

AMAZING VACATION HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
INCREDIBLE vacation home!!! Our family rented this home for a week to spend time on Lake Michigan and we LOVED the entire experience. Michael was extremely helpful before our trip to make it easy and convenient for us! The lake home was updated, extremely clean, beautiful, comfortable, kitchen stocked with everything we needed, linens/towels/bedding great, beautiful landscaping, great back deck and grill and a great view of the sunset sitting out front of the home after a day at the beach!!! Lake Michigan was a very short stroll away from the home and no steps to worry about. We were amazed at how close we were...if you forget anything once you get to the beach...just a quick minute back to the house...no worries!!! We were nervous about the distance to the Lake but once we arrived, we realized we were even closer to the beach than we imagined!!! BONUS! Our first morning there, I woke up to watch a sailboat on Lake Michigan go by as I looked out the front window! Very nice! Behind the house is the Marina to walk through and view the boats. We took walks down the beach every day to the pier to watch the boats come in and out...great location! We've rented vacation homes in the past but the whole family agreed that this is where we want to be again next year!

RELAXING BEACH GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Spacious vacation home a block from the beach! The front has a patio and it was an excellent place to soak up the sun and enjoy the slow pace of South Haven. The yard and deck were great for relaxing. It was our family's first time to South Haven and the owners were helpful and had great recommendations for local restaurants. The house has a fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal. The kids loved the house and the alcove shower - just their size. The bedrooms were roomy and the main shower was great, too. The home was comfortably furnished, with homey touches and many seating areas. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away to the beaches of Lake Michigan.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in receiving reviews like this as we take great pride in our home and we hope it shows. The Oakland North is a place where we have created lasting memories with our four children. We have opened our home to your family to join in the fun. The house is ideally sized for one large or two small families. We find the outdoor beach shower, located adjacent to the back deck, with hot and cold water to be incredibly convenient after a day at the beach. It significantly reduces the amount of sand brought into the house. Just one of many thoughtful ideas we hope you are able to use and enjoy.
Please take a moment to click on our calendar and see if your desired dates are currently available. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate your family in South Haven at the Oakland North!
