About Richard Riggs

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.

Richard Riggs purchased this house in 2013

Why Richard Riggs chose South Haven

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

A Lovely Home Walking Distance to South Haven!

  • 5 of 5
A lovely home! The decor is tastefully done and it was so very clean which is important to us. The towels and bedding smelled so fresh, it was as if everything had just been laundered that day. The kitchen is well stocked with every utensil and appliance needed to cook a sit down meal. The neighborhood is quiet and it was beautiful with all the colors of fall surrounding us. We were more than satisfied with this home! The cost of our stay was very reasonable and we would like to come back! The next time we may invite a few more friends to join us!

Beautiful and spacious home!

  • 5 of 5
We had planned to camp over the week-end, but due to rainy weather, we changed our plans and found this lovely home available. We were so impressed when we walked in, the home is beautiful and was well-equipped in every way. The kids were thrilled with the train room and enjoyed the toys & books provided. We enjoyed playing board games, watching TV, and sharing meals together. We visited the playground, the market, the lighthouse, and an apple orchard while we were there. We would love to come back next year!

Great value, close to everything!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great family vacation at this wonderful property. It's even better than what the photos can show you: large rooms, tastefully decorated, toys and books for the kids, wifi and netflix for the teens, comfortable bedding, and a well equipped kitchen with every tool or dish you might need.
We walked to the farmers market (got several compliments on the home's wagon:), shops and restaurants. The wonderful South Haven beaches and kids corner playground are a short drive.

The owner is great to work with and we look forward to returning!

Perfect fit for our group.

  • 5 of 5
My brother's family of 4 and my 5 met up to share this home for the week. We were astonished at the thoughtfulness of the owners in everything from the toys and books in the childrens' bedroom to the array of dishes on the kitchen. We were able to make almost all our meals at the house, enjoyed the outdoor spaces, and we're very comfortable just lounging around the house and heading to the beach every day. It was very clean and felt homey. Hope we can stay again!

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!

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.
