Why Fred and Kathy Lickteig chose South Haven

The first time we came to South Haven we fell in love with it. It's located at the mouth of the Black River with the most majestic view of the harbor. The south side is more spacious and quaint.

What makes this house unique

You are surrounded by a park and it's like being in a living picture. You see kids playing, people picnicking, family gatherings, and beautiful Lake Michigan.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for us, our children, their spouses & our young grandchildren. It felt like home, with plenty of room for all of us. We had great meals together around the large dining room table and the little ones loved being so close to the playground. Being a block from the beach was wonderful and having the use of the beach chairs, wagon & beach toys was a real bonus. We also loved being able to walk to the little downtown area and the pier. This was the first time we have had a vacation together since my kids left home and I'm so glad this is where we gathered. My only complaint is that the week went to fast.

Blended Families week at Cottage in Kid's Corner Park

Blended Families week at Cottage in Kid's Corner Park
  • 5 of 5
My brother and his extended family and me with mine spent the week before Labor Day at this lovely home. The owners have obviously gone to great length to bring this historic home up to modern standards while outfitting it with quality items across the spectrum. From beds to furnishings, this place is first-rate. The location on the edge of the park one block from Lake Michigan is simply great (unless you dislike the sound of children playing and laughing). We had a great time! We love South Haven. If you love South Haven and want to be near the south beach water, this is well worth consideration! Still a reasonable walk to town, but in a great locale! Super week!

Our family and the friends that visited loved this house, and it's location next to Kids' Corner was ideal. South beach was closed for swimming, so being able to spend somuch time at park was a godsend. The house was well-appointed and had everything we needed. Lots of spaces to sit and read, and a fun "Party Room" that the kids loved. Awesome grill and outdoor space; highly recommend!
One note: if you dont' have an iPhone, bring a radio or CD player if you want music.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We're glad you had such a good time. So sorry the beach was closed, that's very unusual. South Haven is good about keeping the beaches clean and safe but you can't stop mother nature. Also, there is a stereo system in the living room.

Best location in town!

  • 5 of 5
We had a FABULOUS week in this beautiful historic home! This home exceeds all of our expectations. It is clean, beautifully decorated, and roomy enough for two families to cohabitate without tripping over each other. The location is unbelievable. Kids Corner Park is essentially the backyard of every child's dreams. The beach is on the other side of the park, and downtown South Haven is a quick walk (and even quicker bike ride) away. The kitchen is fully stocked, there is plenty of beach gear (including sand toys and chairs), and the fenced-in grill area has everything you need for a private outdoor barbeque. The owners are a pleasure to work with. You can't go wrong!

Cottage in Kid's Corner Great for All Ages

Cottage in Kid's Corner Great for All Ages
  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a place for three generations to enjoy each other's company AND be comfortable, and this cottage definitely filled the bill. We have rented 8 vacation houses in South Haven over the years, and this is the one I would most like to return to. We got a good impression as soon as we walked in -- everything was spic and span and in working order. Our younger members (14, 12, and 10) thoroughly enjoyed the Kid's Corner park. The 12 year old said it was "extreme," which I take to be a complement. :) Our two daughters and their husbands appreciated the nearness of the park and the beach--they didn't have to accompany the children each and every moment--and the availability of activities we could drive to on the cloudy days--specifically, go-karting,movies, and Sherman's Dairy. My husband and I loved the layout and unusual nooks and crannies of the house, and appreciated that it was walking distance (relatively easy walking distance) from shops, restaurants, and the Black River Bookstore! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and the information we received with the contract include a list of what was provided. That was MOST helpful, as we didn't need to bring along kitchen appliances that are often NOT provided in our experience. No problems with the wifi... a must these days. I would recommend this rental without any reservations, and I know all of us feel the same. I'm looking forward to returning!

Best location ever!

  • 5 of 5
This historic house is full of charm and surprises and the owners thought of everything. Lots of room for 6 adults and 4 children. Tables and chairs everywhere to sit and chat or get away for some quite time. There is an enclosed "Bistro" area with a grill and well as a upstairs fun room with a balcony, flat screen TV, fridge and 2 couches that convert to beds.
This is heaven for kids. The upstairs bedroom for kids has a pirate theme with one of the beds being a small boat and a closet full of toys. The park is huge and next to the house. There is a wagon to wheel to the beach supplied with beach chairs, and sand toys galore! The beach is only a block away and just a few blocks from the pier, the lighthouse and downtown.
The house itself has a charm of its own with clawfoot bathtubs, ceiling moldings, enclosed front porch, hardwood floors, and yet all the modern conveniences to keep you comfortable like air conditioning, microwave, flat screen TV. You can't go wrong if you decide to stay at this house.
