There are plenty of tables and chairs, plus a built in bench that lines the perimeter of the deck for extra seating.

I grew up in South Haven and lived there until I attended college at Michigan State. My immediate and extended family, as well as friends, still live there and I come and stay in my own home every summer! I currently live in Tampa, Florida.

Jill Panella - Owner purchased this house in 2005

This property was lovingly renovated by me after I purchased it in 2005. It was made for entertaining with upgraded amenities and a spacious feel for accomodating your family and friends. It is over 100 years old and was originally part of The Grand Hotel that overlooked the bluff.

Three levels of decks with views of the lake and river from both the front and back of the house!! Very open floor plan for entertaining, as well as extra large seating area in the family room for large parties. Additionally has a third floor family room with amazing views of lake and river and SUNSETS!!!!

Great house, great location!

  • 4 of 5
The house is beautiful, just as pictured! It has a ton of space to relax and not feel like you are on top of each other. Quick walk to town and beach. Owner a little hard to get a hold of prior to stay. Also and I hate to complain about this on "vacation" but the Wi-FI in the house is SO SLOW! Something quick like just checking the weather took forever! Unfortunately, my husband had to do some work while we were there and he had to take his laptop into town and sit a coffee shop in order for him to work faster so he could still enjoy the day. Otherwise, our stay was wonderful and would definitely consider staying again! Thank you!

This property is amazing!

  • 4 of 5
We rented this property for a family reunion week. There were 16 of us and the house offers so much room to be able to spread out and enjoy. The porches offer great views and plenty of places to sit and relax. The open concept kitchen area is amazing. Great views. Watching the boats come in and out of the marina was a nice touch. It was so much fun to have a fire in the fire pit, gill out, and visit with family. The in home speaker system that allowed us to play music added a relaxing and festive touch to the whole house. The walk to the beach and to town is easy. We enjoyed the quick walk into town to have ice cream after dinner. The owner was very responsive to our questions and responded quickly to any of our needs. On arrival the home was clean and inviting. I would recommend this home to others.

THIRD FLOOR VIEW AND HOUSE BEAUTIFUL..GREAT LOCAL!

  • 4 of 5
The house is really beautiful and updated, staying here for our family get-together was extra special with great rooms to hold a big group or other rooms for our down time......especially enjoyed the view from the third floor balcony!...being within easy walking distance to town and beach areas were also a nice additional bonus...
just a couple things...the resource folder about the house should include where extra paper products are stored...also, for a home that accommodates large groups there should be sufficient coffee cups and cereal size bowls...
we had trouble with the grill and contacted the owner and it was fixed in a timely manner...the first floor room with the trundle was nice, but extremely crowded (no room to walk around) when the trundle was pulled out due to kids furniture in there
Had a nice dinner at Clementines...six members of our group went out on a fishing charter through IT-IL-DO Charters...great time!...I would recommend this property to friends....

Went for women's weekend. We had difficulty contacting the owner after the reservation money was sent. No response to my emails and phone calls to arrange how to enter the home etc. Had to call HomeAway, who contacted her, and she then called me 2 days before our arrival. Rented this home for the 3 bathrooms, however One of the bathroom tubs was not working.(Called owner - she said sorry, thought it had been fixed).
Had to go to store and buy toilet paper, we were only there for only 2 nights.

Owner's Response: Sorry your stay was not satisfactory. As I mentioned during our phone conversation, the wrong number contact number was listed by Homeaway. As soon as I found this out, I had it corrected. I typically send out entry information two or three days prior to check in for the safety of current guests. You had no delay in getting in to the property. We are sincerely sorry that the second floor bathroom had a piece that had fallen out of the shower making the shower unable to pop on. I had this fixed a week prior and it broke again. After you brought this to my attention I replaced the entire faucet in the shower.

Great house in a wonderful location within walking distance to downtown South Haven. The views of the lake and the canal were awesome. There were 9 of us who stayed there for two nights and so enjoyed the spaciousness of the house - open space of living, dining and kitchen areas much appreciated. We would like to schedule another weekend for 2015. Really can't think of anything negative other than I would have liked to have been able to contact the owner much sooner than I did. Phone calls and emails were not returned for several months until I called Homeaway who gave me a different phone number. The reservation process went through without a hitch - just could not contact the owner until a month prior to our stay. We booked the weekend in January and I was unable to connect with the owner until April. All turned out great in spite of the worry that I had during that time.
Oh, and a great value as well. I would recommend this place to others.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and the property! The house is definitely set up to accommodate many guests at once for entertaining!

I am sincerely apologetic for your difficulty in getting in touch with me. One of the phone numbers that was listed on the site was incorrect. However I always contact the renters a short time before their upcoming stay to give them all pertinent information for check in and check out.

Thanks again for your stay and for your review and we hope to see you again in the near future!

Fabulous! Such a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5
Gorgeous home and perfect location! The decorating, the amenities, and the location were wonderful- no one wanted to leave! An absolutely WONDERFUL week- and we hope to be back next summer.
NOTE: Towel rod/toilet paper holder in master bath, toilet paper holder in first floor bath- had been knocked off and marred the paint prior to our visit. Also, the refrigerator started beeping- but after looking up the model online, we fixed it. Sorry for taking the liberty, but who do you call at 10pm on a Sunday.
With great appreciation- Susan Cochran & family

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and we will be so happy to see you back next year! Sorry about the towel bar and refrigerator!! These things happen with rentals and we fixed the towel bar as soon as possible and I greatly appreciate you taking the initiative with the refrigerator!! Should anything like that ever happen again, Coastal Concierge is available to call at anytime for local service/emergencies.
