Overview

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms - 2 full bathrooms - Sleeps 10

THIS PICTURESQUE BEACH HOME IS PERFECTLY LOCATED JUST STEPS FROM SOUTH HAVEN'S COVETED NORTH SIDE BEACHES AND A SHORT WALK TO ALL DOWNTOWN AMENITIES!

No huge hills or endless stairs to climb to get to our white-sand beaches. Vibrant downtown South Haven is a quick walk to all the shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Our home overlooks the deep-water Black River -- sit out in our Adirondack chairs, watch the boats come & go all day while barbecuing on our Weber gas grill!

The house has been tastefully remodeled with new finishes and appliances while maintaining the feel of its original character and architectural details. All of the rooms are decorated with beach cottage furniture (Pottery Barn, local craftsmen pieces, et al), providing a comfortable feel throughout.

This is the ultimate family retreat! There are 4 bedrooms with 2 full baths. Three bedrooms have queen-size beds, the 4th bedroom has 2 twin beds, plus there is a pull-out couch (queen) in the living room to accommodate a total of 10 people. Yes, there is central air conditioning to cool down after the beach.

The outdoor area is perfect for a BBQ after a day at the beach, with access to our gas-powered 3-burner Weber grill. And when not on the water, we are within walking distance to restaurants, bars, movie theater and all the cute shops in town. A short walk will get you anywhere you want to be in scenic South Haven!

If you want to settle in, our place has new furniture throughout and is designed with relaxation in mind. Enjoy watching the boats go by from the back yard, or from either of the sitting areas on both floors, and enjoy the spectacular sunrises over the Black River. Enjoy a movie on our 50' flat screen tv equipped with cable and wireless internet.

South Haven is home to numerous festivals throughout the year and is known for their regional Blueberry crop. You will be pleased with the art & specialty shops (art, clothing, antiques, etc.) in town, as well as many more just a short drive away. Southwest Michigan has a thriving winemaking community with vineyard tours available at local wineries. Golfers will find a large selection of courses at all levels of play. For the athlete, we are at the beginning of the Kal-Haven Trail which offers 30+ miles for running, biking, or hiking. Kayaks and paddleboards can be rented from a shop down the street and bikes can be rented in town as well.

So, to complete the picture: Great house in thriving resort community, beaches to the front, river to the back, quick walk to town, great dining & nightlife options and a variety of fun activities at your fingertips guaranteed to entertain the whole group and provide lasting vacation memories!!

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your lovely home! Had a wonderful vacation with my daughters and grand-daughters. The house exceeded our expectations, it looked great in the photos, but we were even more pleased upon arrival as we opened the door to the most adorable beach cottage! Spotless clean, beautifully decorated, high-end appliances, and all amenities to make our stay comfortable, easy and unforgettable. Great location - quick walk to beach and town - many beautiful sunset walks, stopping for ice-cream and heading to the pier! Had the pleasure of visiting during Blueberry Festival and absolutely loved that we were walking distance to everything! Most enjoyed the privacy of relaxing in the backyard, watching boats cruise by as the kids played games on the lawn. A few rainy afternoons left us housebound, we were very thankful for the the toys and games that kept the kids entertained and good space for them to play safely. Thank you for the many wonderful memories, we are looking forward to next year!
