You'll enjoy amazing sunsets as well as watching the boats up and down the river. It has 3600 sq ft of beautifully decorated entertaining space with gourmet kitchen that seats 6 at the granite bar with full amenities, 10 person dining table, large family room with multiple seating areas, backyard deck entertaining area with gas grill, firepit, dining table, 4 bedrooms on the 2nd level that sleep 6, one lower level queen sleeper sofa (open in living room), lower level bedroom with queen bed and twin trundle, 3rd level family room loft (has 4 twin beds loft style) with outdoor covered deck with views of river & Lake Michigan!! Home is equipped with 3 LCD TVs, DVD players, dish TV, kids playroom/toys, pack & play, beach toys. One block to town & 3 blocks to the beach - the Perfect location to easily walk to beach or town & enjoy the view!

Few blocks to Kids Corner!: Kids tired of going to the beach and want something different to do?! We are just a short walk over to Kids Corner which is a huge wooden play center with towers, bridges and hidden tunnels! Also slides, swings, tire swings, etc., basketball hoop/court, baseball/softball diamond, picnic tables and lots of grassy area to play other games!!

Concerts and Festivals: We are only a couple minutes walk to the river area where a lot of the free concerts and festivals are held. So, you don't have to pack up everything for the whole day - you can get home quickly any time you want to stop back in and take a break then right back to the festivities in minutes!!!

House made for entertaining: This is a place where we entertain and host our large family every year so we are set up with plenty of places for everyone to sit for eating and lounging around in the family room to watch TV. No more crowded seats with some people left out!!! Same goes for the outside back deck area. There are plenty of tables and chairs, plus a built in bench that lines the perimeter of the deck for extra seating.

Additionally, the third level family room/bedroom loft area is one large open space with 4 twin mattresses (two can be put together for a king bed) in the front of the space, and a large sectional and club chair with flat screen t.v. to the rear of the space and a 3rd level deck with plenty of comfy seating for viewing all of those spectacular sunsets or taking an afternoon nap!

About Jill Panella - Owner

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

Why Jill Panella - Owner chose South Haven

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.

What makes this house unique

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!!!!

COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER PLACE

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was PERFECT!!!! There was not a single thing I would change. The location was perfect, about .5 miles to the light house, and .2 miles to downtown shopping and restaurants. The house was furnished with everything that you needed for a weekend get away!!! We had 20 girls stay at the cottage and there were plenty of places to sleep!!!! If you are looking for a very classy/ big cottage THIS IS THE PLACE TO RENT!!!!!

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented places in South Haven many times, but always north of the river. This is a beautiful house and the thing we liked most is how close it is to downtown. No piling in the car to head out for breakfast, dinner or shopping -- it's just a 3 minute walk! The downstairs is very spacious and comfortable, and the river/lake view from the 3rd floor balcony seals the deal. We hope to rent again later this year.

One of the best weekends ever!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely LOVED this house. It was the perfect place for my dad's 60th birthday celebration. My entire family loves South Haven and this house was perfect for the weekend- close to town, quick walk to the beach, AMAZING views... I could have stayed forever. It made me so happy to see my entire family able to be in one place together and feel at home and cozy despite the chilly fall weather outside. Thank you for this amazing place, I absolutely LOVED it and hope to rent again in the future!
