Couples Getaway

My wife and I along with 3 other couples stayed here for our annual couples getaway this past weekend. This house was fantastic and I would recommend it for anyone wanting some peace and quiet tucked back in the woods. This house had many things to offer such as tennis, basketball, pool, ping pong and a camp fire out back along with more than enough space to accommodate all of us. It was only a 10-15 minute drive into South Haven to enjoy the beach and shopping. Mike (home owner) was very easy to work with and made arranging the stay very easy for all of us. I highly recommend this house for anyone wanting to stay in this area. A+++++++

Everything was perfect

If you are thinking about renting this house, do it! The grounds are beautiful and the house secluded. The house is VERY clean and well kept. It is equipped with all that you need. We had more than enough space for 12 adults.The location is perfect. It is right outside the busy town of South Haven; yet close enough to take advantage of all that it has to offer. We enjoyed visiting many near by small towns. We went shopping; visited a few wineries and breweries; went to the beach on Lake Michigan, watched the sunset over the Lake and dined at many local restaurants. We were only 45 minutes or so from Gun Lake where we rented a pontoon. The owner, Mike, was very nice. He went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met and always answered our emails and texts promptly. We received our deposit back promptly, also. As you can see, all the reviews are giving this house an "Excellent" rating and it is well deserved!!! Thanks again Mike for sharing your home.

great for a big family

We had such a relaxing time at this house. We had grandparents, parents and teen-agers in our group, and everyone enjoyed their time. Basketball, tennis, bike rides, movies, games, fire pit, and fun trips into South Haven for beach time, shopping, dining and ice cream at Sherman's. Mike was great to work with - so helpful, and always available to respond to questions.We really enjoyed staying outside of the town, driving in when we felt like it. The house and its surroundings are a beautiful escape in and of themselves. We are already trying to cook up a good excuse to come back, and considering we drove 17 hours to get there, that's saying something. :)

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING

I can't say enough about the beautiful landscaping and peaceful surroundings. You can take a stroll down to the river, which you can see from the house or just relax and read a book on the very large, screened in porch (my favorite spot) and the birds, chipmunks and black squirrels are fun to watch. The house is so big you can disappear, if you want. No complaints from my group, we had a marvelous time.
