South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, sleeps 8

Whether it’s you and your family or you and your best friends, we have a place that was designed for gatherings. Built in 2007, this craftsman bungalow has all the modern amenities, but with a homey nod to the past.

A long, winding driveway leads you through the woods to the house, which overlooks a pond for fishing, a grassy field for lawn games, and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows under the stars. Inside, an open floor plan lets you all be together while comfy bedrooms and an additional sitting room allow for downtime. In cooler months, hunker down by the wood-burning fireplace. Step outside to enjoy covered porches, a screened-in dining porch, grilling terrace, pergola, another fire pit, outdoor shower and walking trails.

Whether you bike, hike, swim, kayak, shop, antique, dine, gamble, golf, or just relax in the hammock, there’s always something to do. Like other guests who’ve found us, we’re sure you’ll want to return again and again.

The House: The main floor of the house is an open floor plan with the gourmet kitchen, dining room with large farmhouse table, and a living with a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite and walnut countertops, large pantry, and a screened outdoor dining porch. Other outdoor porches have rockers, upholstered furniture, and ceiling fans. The main floor master suite includes a full bath with large shower, washer/dryer, queen size bed and french doors leading outside. The second floor has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds. Also upstairs is a sitting room with a pull-out sofa and doors that lead out to a balcony. The second floor has a full bathroom with tub/shower.The house has all of the comforts of home, central air, wood burning fireplace, large-screen/satellite TV, Blu-ray player, DVD/CD player, and audio system with speakers throughout the inside and outside of the house. The house is secured with an alarm system.

The Land: This charming cottage, nestled in the woods of Michigan, is named for the various species of holly bushes grown on site. As you enter the private 20 acres, you are greeted by a park-like area, with flower beds and tree specimens. This area also features a fruit orchard, containing apples, peaches, and pears. The gravel driveway leads you through this open area into the woods, winding down a tree lined drive to the house, set back in the woods near the creek and stone's throw from the large pond. Walking trails radiate out from the house and circle the property. Tucked away in the woods is a third fire pit, which is in the center of an area of campsites carved from the woods.

The Area: See above for a description of area attractions. For more pictures, check out our website,

A little slice of heaven, and then some ...

  • 5 of 5
This is exactly the vacation we were looking for when we booked your property – stunning, serene, peaceful. Our dogs were so happy to have all the open spaces to run and play. We walked, fished, roasted marshmallows, and just sat still, completely unplugged and relaxed -- something we rarely think to do anymore. Truly an antidote to the daily grind. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had another wonderful time at the HollyWoods! There was something for everybody here! For 10 days, this was our dream home, biking the Kal-Haven and Van Buren trails, swimming, berry picking, and playing cards. By far, Clover had the best time of all – running, running, and running. I've never seen her so happy and so tired. Thanks once again for a wonderful time.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
We were in awe of all the landscaping and beauty of the property both inside and out! It was one of the best vacations I've had in a long time...we chose to cook all our meals at the house and dine on the enclosed screened porch off the kitchen. It was peaceful, secluded and the perfect vacation to get away from it all. We are talking about our next visit and hope to come back many times!!

I'd like to thank Jim for creating one of the most beautiful properties to spend family time and our dogs were at ease in the surroundings. We deeply appreciate being allowed to bring our pets. Highly recommend The Hollywoodsouthhaven!!

Relaxing getaway close to everything

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful getaway! We loved staying in this house and relaxing for the week. Our girls loved the upstairs and playing in the living area and having their own space up there. We loved reading on the porches and by the pond. We also really enjoyed riding our bikes on the country roads. We picked lots of blueberries at Earls and raspberries at another nearby farm. I made some jam, too. We went horseback riding twice and make it to the beach several times. Even with all this activity, we felt completely relaxed and unplugged; a perfect result for a vacation. We also loved hiking in the woods and relaxing on the hammocks. The kitchen and porch were glorious to cook and eat in. We stayed in every night and cooked in the gourmet kitchen stocked with all the proper amenities for make a meal right. Thank you for giving up your beautiful home. If we come back next year, we will have a pup.

Paradise week end

  • 5 of 5
It was one of the best week ends our family has enjoyed. We played croquet and soccer and just relaxed. The trails, bbq, and patio were a plus. There was no detail left out from the dishes, silverware which I thought were cool to having exactly what housewares we would need and use. To some it up already thinking about another get away to the holly woods.
Thank you Jim for being so accommodating.

2nd visit as wonderful as the 1st

  • 5 of 5
Jim and Kyle, The Hollywood's has proved to be as lovely in the spring as in the fall. We had a wonderful relaxing stay. One new activity that all enjoyed was feeding the fish. Even the dogs were fascinated to see a half a dozen fish racing for a nibble, what fun! It was a great return visit. The grounds are incredible and the home looks like it should be featured in a magazine. Thank you for sharing.

This house is located just outside of South Haven and is about 2 hours from Chicago and about 3 hours from Detroit. The town is known for it’s Lake Michigan beaches, it’s many festivals, farmer’s market and gracious hospitality.

South Haven is halfway between the other harbor towns St. Joseph and Saugatuck/Douglas which both make for easy day-trips. The area is also known as 'Harvest Country' for it’s many u-pick fruit orchards and winery tours. Besides Lake Michigan, there are many inland lakes for fishing and rivers for canoeing and kayaking.

The area has plenty of art galleries, museums and historic sites to keep the mind as well as the body occupied.

Summer is abuzz with sun-soaked activities which stretch into the fall when rolling hills and woods become ablaze with color. Winter festivals, outdoor ice-skating, and snowmobiling keep folks busy in the snowy months.
