Our family has been coming to South Haven for several generations and for many reasons. We enjoy swimming at the beautiful beaches. We enjoy golfing. There are several great golf courses such as Hawk's Head and Beaches. We enjoy biking. The Kal-haven Bike Trail is near our home and is a 33.5 mile long multi-use trail linking Kalamazoo to South Haven. Most of all we enjoy family. South Haven is a place where family memories are created and remembered for a life time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Our home is a nice retreat when you want to get away from it all. With a well equipped kitchen, you can grill in the huge back yard, play a little badminton and volleyball, then dine and relax on the patio and porches. You are also just steps to restaurants when you don't feel like cooking. We enjoy the convenience of walking to the restaurants and downtown shops while also enjoying quiet time on our beautifully quiet tree lined street.

The home is just blocks to the Kal-Haven Trail a 33.5 mile long multi-use trail that links South Haven to Kalamazoo. The trail is not only stunning but is a preferred destination for biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. A new skateboard park has been added at the entrance of the Kal-Haven Trail. Great for teens!

VERY COMFORTABLE, CLEAN, EASY ACCESSIBLE PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
I HIGHLY recommend The Roost if you are visiting South Haven. The house is beautiful, very comfortable, and extremely clean. We had 4 adults, 2 toddlers, and a baby in our party, and there was more than enough space for us. The owner of the property is very easy to deal with and responds to questions right away. She is very attentive to detail and has many extra items throughout the house to make your stay more comfortable. It is obvious she cares about her property and her guests, and isn't just another owner trying to make a buck.

Even more importantly, the property is a very short, easy walk to the town. Even with 3 kids in tow, we were able to walk over for breakfast and dinner every day. The beach is a short drive, but we preferred to take a car anyway because of all our extra items.

I also love how spacious the house is. There are 5 good-sized bedrooms, each of which have either a king or queen bed (1 room has 2 twins with enough space to walk around). And best of all, everything is VERY CLEAN! I am always wary of older houses because of the bathrooms, but the bathrooms at The Roost were impeccable. Not only that, but the kitchen appliances are top notch. We didn't cook while we were there, but I would have loved to use her kitchen!

I cannot say enough good things about The Roost. My only regret is that our stay was a short 3 days, and I definitely plan on coming back in the near future for a longer trip.

RELAXING, QUIET AND PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Roost. We had a party size of 7 and we had ample room in this beautiful home. It was nicely decorated, newly updated, with old world charm. It was also very clean. The Roost is situated right around the corner from many dining options, the beach, and nightlife. When we retreated in for the night, it was quiet and very comfortable! I couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks for the great time!

GREAT HOUSE TO GATHER LONG DISTANCE FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We met for a late holiday family visit at the Roost. It was perfect for our family. Enough rooms for adults to have privacy and the upper family room was great for the kids. While it was too cold to explore the town on foot or enjoy the water, the house is big enough that we didn't feel cooped up at all. The kitchen is well stocked and owners have thought of just about everything. We greatly enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend this house!

WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing in South Haven for 25 years. The Roost was one of the best properties we have stayed at. The Roost is very comfortable, roomy, and clean. The beds are great. Everything you will need is provided from a spacious kitchen, large dining table, sunny porches, and great little nooks and crannies! We walked to the Vineyard for our favorite pizza, walked to town for shopping, and to the beach. The location is very convenient and on a quiet street. This owner is great to work with and makes this rental a breeze to arrange. I highly recommend this property and we will return to it again!

WE LOVE THE "ROOST"!!!

We love the "Roost"!!!
  • 5 of 5
We visited South Haven over Thanksgiving weekend and absolutely love the Roost and it's location. We had our immediate and extended family in town and it could not have been better. The Roost retains much it's original architectural details and vintage character yet provides all of the modern conveniences we needed. Everyone was commenting on the wonderful feel and layout of the home. In particular, the attention to detail taken in the restoration, maintenance and cleanliness of the home. pride of ownership is very apparent!

ROBERT'S ROOST

Robert's Roost
  • 5 of 5
Our family of nine just spent a wonderful week at Roberts Roost. The property is just as it appears on-line, very comfortable, roomy and homey. Although an older home, it is very well maintained and CLEAN! The location was great...a couple blocks to town, shopping and restaurants and a short walk to the beach. The owner was a pleasure to work with and most helpful in planning our week. I would highly recommend Roberts Roost for your Michigan vacation.
