I grew up in Southeast Michigan near Ann Arbor and went to school at Michigan State. After a number of years away I returned to live in my family home, an 1873 farmhouse where my great grandfather cleared the land. I have enjoyed the updates and remodeling that comes with the vintage of the house, but mostly appreciate the park-like setting in the area.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2013

I have enjoyed many trips to the Lake Michigan beaches and enjoyed the serenity of the water, dunes and breezes. The ability to observe the sunsets over the water with feet in the sand and to hear waves come ashore is an especially relaxing moment. To do so in an area which is notable for blueberries and close to other great shore communities a short drive away was particularly appealing to me. I hope you will come to appreciate this environment, as well! There are seasonal events and activities to enjoy from festivals for film and blueberry lovers, as well as year-round benefits of hiking and biking.

The proximity to the beach and lighthouse was an attraction to the area, and this house offered a great open floor-plan which will allow people to stay engaged and appreciate time together. A bicycle store is around the corner if you wish to rent bikes for a trip around town or down the Kal Haven trail. There are unique shops in South Haven and a short drive takes you to the Saugatuck community for even more shopping with a creative, artistic emphasis.

Great home to rent! Great location with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to South Haven and we came upon this listing. It was GREAT! We were 4 couples taking a relaxing weekend away from the kids and this home was perfect. GREAT location - we could walk into town for meals and shopping. It had all of the amenities that we needed and wanted, we each had our own room, and the dining room table was great for eating together and playing games. Would DEFINITELY rent this again for any future trips to South Haven! Thank you so much!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this house was wonderful. The house was very nice, clean, and spacious. It far exceeded our expectations. There were so many thoughtful amenities - from kitchen and bath supplies to 3d glasses for the TV... the list goes on. We felt right at home from the moment we walked in. The location was great as well, just 2 blocks east of downtown. If we ever go back to South Haven we will definitely try to stay here again. Our kids absolutely loved the bunk beds and train toys. The great condition of the house made for a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your observations. There are a number of great family-friendly features to the home. South Haven has many all-season activities. Our grandchildren came recently and we had to pry them off of the beach. Even on a blustery cool day it was fun! We saw a show of kite-surfing and kayaking in Lake Michigan that was very exciting. We're glad our guests had a great experience!

Amazing home and vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
Would give 10 stars, this home is simply Stunning!! It has so much room and everything you could possibly need is found here. Richard was helpful in every aspect from questions to even providing a wagon for the kids to ride in when we walked to the beach. The decor is beautiful and gives a very homey feeling. Great corner lot with nice porch and decks for the great outdoor weather. Great laundry room/back porch area for swim items after the beach. We would highly recommend this home as we feel it is the best there is! We feel so blessed to have chosen this home for our vacation!

OUTSTANDING is the only way to describe this home. Pictures did not do the home justice, it is beautiful and very large. I would recommend this rental for anyone who loves South Haven like my family does.

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5
The house is very well decorated. It had a homey atmosphere. It really is very short walk to downtown. A definite drive to the beach. The property was clean and well maintained. Newly renovated. The owner was very nice and easy to work worth. The farmers market on Saturday was packed. We ate at restaurant called the Taste, which we walked to from the property, and it was very good. It is located off the main street in town. If you sit on the front porch it is a little loud and not somewhere to sit and relax. The back deck is a nice to be outside on. Overall it is a very nice place. I would recommend this to family and friends. Our family is hoping to come back next year!

The South Haven area is historic as a maritime center. It still offers boaters a great marina setting with docking just a short walk to downtown. The beach is beautiful with a new children's play area and lovely sunsets. There are a variety of recreational opportunities including nearby golf courses, and summer rentals for water sports. The Kal Haven linear State Park is a hiking and biking trail starting from the beach area and proceeding into rural SW Michigan. As a starting point for regional exploring this property is a mile from the highway allowing an interesting visit to the Saugatuck/Douglas and Holland areas.
