VERY PRIVATE 20 ACRE PROPERTY, UPSCALE HOME NEAR LAKE MICHIGAN

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, and a large fresh vegetable garden. 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 stones through 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,

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.

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time here. It's just a great place to spend a relaxing vacation. The property is totally private, with its own pond and walking trails, all maintained well. We fished in the pond, walked the trails, and made several campfires. The outdoor shower really came in handy when we came back from the beach. Inside all three generations settled in and came together as a family. Every detail, the kitchen, the baths, the den, reflected an artist's touch and was beautiful. I definitely recommend the place.

I would also recommend any potential guests with small children understand the house is NOT babyproof. So you need to be careful with little hands and feet grabbing or knocking over things that could break. Also, you'll have to bring your own crib, highchair, etc.

BEAUTIFUL WELL KEPT HOME IN A NATURAL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
Jim and Kyle,

Thanks for yet another wonderful stay in your lovely home. Your place is so beautiful and relaxing, it makes it difficult to leave. Our goal is to visit every season. We have spring and summer under our belt so that leaves fall and winter. We left you some birdseed in the mudroom, we spotted a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak and a Towhee. Thanks again for a wonderful visit.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at your lovely home in this beautiful setting. Tromping through the woods, bonfires, sitting by the pond or on the porch, movies and games, it all made for a wonderful family getaway. We took your advice and ate at "Su Casa" and "Phil's" and though we did not make it this trip, we can recommend "Salt of the Earth" to others. Thanks also for the great reading library. I was delighted to find the book I was reading, but left at home, on your shelves and picked it up again. We look forward to returning sometime soon!

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.
