MAGICAL MICHIGAN MOMENTS

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to the perfect peaceful location where you can enjoy exploring a truly historic jewel; South Haven, Michigan. Imagine waking to the aroma of coffee being prepared in your bright, cheerful and fully appointed kitchen, enjoyed on an inviting sun porch. Or perhaps, taking a tranquil morning stroll to the quaint downtown to enjoy a cappuccino, made just the way you like it! All this and more awaits you in this newly restored home, with sleeping accommodations for 8. Each unique and comfortable room in this recently discovered hidden treasure beckons you and yours to relax and create unforgettable memories of your stay in this lovely community. This could undoubtedly become your new yearly getaway, and who could blame you?

The property itself is a “new” listing for 2011, and its lovely interior is the result of much TLC by the new owners and their many artistic friends. Expect all the comforts and more from this “home away from home.” Features of the delightfully appointed getaway include a main level double bedroom next to a full bath. Three additional bedrooms and full bath can be found on the second floor. The master suite with king size bed, sitting area, rocking chair and even a dry bar, all located next to the second level full bath. Your dining experience will be enhanced with a fully appointed kitchen with breakfast nook, or served in the charming dining area. Additional amenities that you will certainly enjoy are the relaxing living area (complete with DVD library) and a cheerful, bright sun porch.

Whether this is your first time to enjoy the wonders of this community (made famous throughout the years by its legendary lighthouse), you will create lasting memories with this home base as you discover the wonders of blueberries, antiques, quaint shops, and possibly that memorable dinner at our famous Clementine’s. Should you wish to stay home for an evening, imagine the aroma of a good steak being created on the BBQ grill in the huge landscaped back yard. The property enjoys spacious surroundings, and has more than ample parking for a number of vehicles (including a boat trailer) .

We know you will enjoy staying at the “Cherry Street Retreat” as much as we have loved bringing it back and sharing its new life. We also offer additional amenities including private chefs as well as a Concierge service for those “special” extras (service rates available on request).

Weekly rentals run from Saturday at 4:00 PM through the next Saturday at 11AM. Rates run from $1250 to $1600 weekly, with the June-July- August summer rate at $1600 per week. Should you wish a weekend getaway, rental is just $350.00 per day.

For more information and your reserved opportunity to experience this wonderful getaway, please contact Sue at 269-388-4233.

South Haven, a short drive from our home in Kalamazoo is peacefully fun!. The time we spent in South Haven convinced us the community is seemingly a little piece of heaven; finally prompting us to look for a property we could call our own.

After purchasing our summer ‘get-away’ our first course of business was to take and transform it into our cozy retreat.

We are either on site or our grounds care taker, Joe, is there to landscape and open/close the indoor pool 9:00 am - 9:00 pm if added into your stay. Landscaping, gardening and the indoor saline pool invites you to share in enjoying our new cottage; rentals are welcome throughout all seasons.

Sue Fritz purchased this house in 2010

Enjoy the beautiful sunsets and walking the pier of South Haven is less than a mile. It is such a quaint town with year around activities and we are blessed to work and live less then a hour away. We only hope that you may enjoy the peace and tranquility afforded by the beaches of South Haven and fully find the relaxation you deserve!

This location is ideal in the city and located close to everything with sidewalks and cross walk lights for safety. We enjoy a tranquil setting with an beautiful view and an extra long peaceful fenced back yard that is beautifully landscaped.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We didn't want to leave, what else can I say? :) Cherry Street Retreat was the perfect home away from home getaway. From the moment we walked in we knew it was going to be awesome. The cottage itself is so inviting and comfortable, and much larger than it appears. It also is beautifully decorated to give it that quaint cottage feel. We had three adults and two children and there was more than enough room for us to be comfortable. The bedrooms are surprisingly spacious and perfect for young children. The kitchen was FULLY stocked. We vacation every year and many homes say fully stocked and they are not, you will not be disappointed with the kitchen here! The pool was AMAZING!! We used it from sun up to sun down. While we did take time to tour the town and visit the beach we really just wanted to get back to the house and swim. Our 3 year old twin boys are still raving about the "vacation house" pool, as they affectionately refer to Cherry Street Retreat. Not only did the house make us feel comfy and cozy so did Sue, she has such a cheerful disposition and really made us feel welcomed. We would go back to Cherry Street Retreat in a heartbeat and are planning a return visit.

LOVELY HOUSE AND WONDERFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Cherry Street Retreat this past weekend. We were three families with little kids who had decided last-minute to check out fall colors in Michigan. We called a few places for availability...this place stood out, not just because of its beautiful location, but because of the sweet accommodating owner. Sue not only accommodated us on a short notice, but was also very helpful right from the get-go.

Our stay was very comfortable and pleasant. The house is very clean, very quaint, and well maintained. The weather was a little chilly, so we spent most of the time indoors. We loved the sun room/porch overlooking the street, as we couples spent most time there chatting away while our kiddos played in the living room. :)

The listing description and photographs are accurate. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Thanks Sue for EVERYTHING!

SOUTH HAVEN HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at the Cherry Street Retreat and it was wonderful. The house is charming and roomy with all the amenities. The yard and flower beds are beautiful, the hydrangeas were spectacular!! It is a nice walk or fast bike ride to town, restaurants and the beach. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and very home-y.

The owner made sure we were completely taken care of and was very helpful with information about local event and activities.

It was a wonderful relaxing week and we would not hesitate to book another stay at cherry Street Retreat!

CHEERY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The house was very open, bright and cheery. You felt at home immediately. Descriptions and pictures were very accurate. The garden in back was peaceful and quiet. You will enjoy everything this "cottage" has to offer. Sue was extremely helpful as this was our initial visit to Lake Michigan. We really appreciate the fact that she takes such hands-on interest in her house. The location was perfect, close to downtown and South and North Beach. Very quiet neighborhood! Loved the family owned restaurants, Maria's and Clementine's, as they were both very reasonably priced. Truly relaxing vacation!!
