South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 22)

The Hideaway is a newer home located in a private wooded setting behind the magnificent shifting sand dunes of Lake Michigan. We are surrounded by meandering trails that lead to the breathtaking views of the lakeshore from atop the dunes. The sugar sand beach is accessible in three locations. The Hideaway borders North Point Conservation area and Van Buren State Park where many hike to the beach. Just north is beach access with a shorter hike directly through the dunes. These are two great spots to watch the beautiful ever changing sunsets. For easier access, beach parking is only 1 mile away at the State Park with a paved walkway all the way to the beach.

Enjoy the outdoors with friends and family around the fire pit while roasting marshmallows. You'll notice that various birds, deer and wildlife enjoy the property too. Cook out on the gas grill in the evening then sit back on the deck or relax in the 8-person hot tub. The kids will enjoy the playground, sandbox and spacious yard. We offer Satellite with Blu Ray Player and VCR. We have plenty of movies, books and games available. Find adventure in the hiking and biking trails nearby or anchor your boat off shore and enjoy the beach. We are just south of South Haven, where you'll find beaches, restaurants, shopping, water sports, golf, biking trails and all that the beach town of South Haven has to offer.

The Hideaway sleeps 22 and offers 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The Master Suite is located on the main floor and includes a king size bed, jetted bathtub with separate shower and double sinks. A 1/2 bath is also located on the main floor. Three bedrooms are located upstairs with a second full bath. The second bedroom has two twin size bunk beds, the third bedroom has a queen size bed, and a very large fourth bedroom has four double beds with a large closet and room to spare. We have a walkout basement with a set of bunk-beds and 2 sleeper sofas.

About Scott and Stacy

Hi! We're Scott and Stacy. We've grown up in the area and love the lake shore so much we've not been able to move away. We've been married since 2005 and became parents in 2010. We've been renting homes since the summer of 2006. We enjoy camping, boating, and relaxing on the beach in the summer.

Scott and Stacy purchased this house in 2007

Why Scott and Stacy chose South Haven

We purchased this property in 2007 after falling in love with the wooded area and the nature trails to the beach. It was a labor of love and by the summer of 2008 our house was finished. Our first rental season began the summer of 2012. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

What makes this house unique

We love having the opportunity to be so close to nature and enjoy watching birds, deer, turkey and other wildlife from our windows. The house is very private and surrounded by woods with a beautiful view of a large wooded dune from the front window. We also have a wall of windows in the great room so you can enjoy the scenery in the back yard. It's a great place to sit back and relax or for people who love to walk trails through the woods or enjoy sunsets from atop the dunes overlooking Lake Michigan.

Beautiful home - great for large families!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home with plenty of space for our large group - 7 adults and 4 children. We enjoyed family dinners at the large kitchen table and the outdoor tables. We had a slight issue with the air conditioning but the owner came right over and corrected the problem. It is a nice bike ride from the state park and a great beach. We also enjoyed the short ride into town to visit the shops and stop for ice cream. We would recommend this home for anyone that would like a wonderful home in a nice private setting.

Perfect Place for a group!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful. It had a sense of seclusion being on an open wooded lot. Yet, it was just a short drive to town. Perfect property if you have young children running around. Nice open concept kitchen was great for cooking meals with friends and family. House also offers a pool table downstairs which wasn't shown in the photos, so that was a nice surprise. Owner was always available by phone. We spent most days at the beach, which was not crowded at all. It truly was a treat to come back to this home in the afternoons.

wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, exactly as advertised and perfect for our needs. We put one couple with a baby on the first floor master suite. Upstairs, a couple and two children ages 2 and 4 took the room with 4 double beds. The room with bunk beds was available for the 3 boys age 6-15 (with room for a 4th), and that left a nice room with a queen bed for me!

Plenty of seating in the kitchen/dining area for all of us, as well as outdoor seating. The little ones loved the backyard toys and play area. The older kids were thrilled with the wall-mounted big screen TV set up for TV, DVD and video games.

We all *walked* to the dunes and Lake Michigan one day. Other days, just a short drive brought us into charming South Haven: its downtown, the harbor, the beaches, and children's park there. We just missed berry-picking season but maybe next time.

The owners automate everything, so informational emails and billing requests occur automatically. I was a little surprised *not* to get more personalized communications, but every time we had a question, they always answered very promptly, and our deposit was refunded within 10 days.

Would certainly recommend this location and this property to others! My only caveat is that on the trail to the dunes, we did pick up a couple ticks. So dress or spray appropriately to avoid that.

Great Vacation at the Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The location and accommodations were excellent for a large family with small children. The layout of rooms and yard allowed plenty of play space. The paths to the adjacent state park and Lake Michigan made this an ideal family vacation spot.

Beautiful property, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 adults, 3 children) recently returned from a week stay at the Hideaway and had a great experience.

The house is in wonderful shape (top notch maintenance and cleaning) and was actually considerably BIGGER than it appeared in the pictures. The dining room table could seat 10 easily and still allow for easy conversation among all. The kitchen had all the space needed for many to cook at once and the pantry/cabinets were great.

The deck is a huge space with room to host 17 (again pretty easily) for dinner and still have room for kids to play. The hot tub worked great and was in a wonderful location away from tables and was behind a gate to provide added safety from kids.

We are a fairly outdoorsy group and LOVED being right next to the state park. It was a 10 minute or so pretty easy walk to the top of one of the dunes on the lake and to one of the more beautiful sunsets I have seen. The walk back up from the beach to the park is a tough one and we elected to drive 5 minutes to state park for easier beach access with kids. The playset and sand/water play tables were also great for the kids.

We had two occasions to deal with owners on relatively straightforward issues (blown fuse, wi-fi needed reset) and they were easy to reach and responded in minutes.

The bedrooms are generally spacious with large closets. Our family did struggle a bit to find the right combination to put into the room with 4 double beds so this is something worth reflecting on if multiple families are traveling with young kids that may easy to wake.

We liked the idea that this property was somewhat away from the touristy center of South Haven and found the 5-10 minute drive to walk along the harbor, get a bite to eat, or grab some Sherman's ice cream was a great distance.

We would recommend this property and ownership group highly.
