About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose South Haven

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.

What makes this house unique

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! There is also a park with swings, slides, play set and basketball court located 1 block east of The Roost.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Roost was a great choice for our family. There was plenty of space for everyone in the main living area and in the bedrooms. The home was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was great and included everything we could possibly need. The dining table is big enough for everyone to sit around for a meal or a game. The floor-plan pictures of the first and second floors were helpful to plan sleeping arrangements before we arrived. It is just a short walk to downtown and definitely walking distance to the beach. The owner was very easy to work with and responded to any questions quickly. We had a lot of fun apple picking at Overheiser orchards and have been enjoying the delicious apples. Sunset at the beach was spectacular!

I would recommend this place to my friends and family

They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This summer was our first time staying at The Roost. We had 5 adults and 4 children, including an infant. The home is just as adorable as it looks in the pictures and we LOVED the spacious backyard. It was the perfect place for the kids (and adults) to play when we weren't strolling downtown or at the beach. I must say, I have rented many properties in my day but I have never rented a property as fully stocked as The Roost. Madeleine has truly thought of everything one could possibly need. The decor is lovely and the home easily accommodated our family. Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't give Madeleine a personal shout out for graciously returning my son's beloved stuffed animal that got left behind. Thanks again!

Excellent home, close to everything !!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at the Roost. The home is decorated beautifully, the owner has thought of every detail to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The house is located just a few blocks from South Haven amazing downtown, and 6 to 7 blocks to the North Beach. We had a group of 10 with 6 teen age boys who took over the 2nd floor. 3 great bedrooms, another bath, and the great family room with flat screen tv and even an X box

which they loved. I loved cooking in the country kitchen, breakfast off the back porch, it was all wonderful . The owner was so helpful with all the reservations. We would love to go back again, highly recommend the Roost.

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!
