Overview

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

This property rents weekly on a Saturday to Saturday rotation between June 13- August 28 & with a two-night minimum the rest of the year.

Step back in time and enjoy of piece of Lake Michigan history! Previously known as “The Blackstone”, this former boarding house was moved from across the street and restored by its current owners to maintain the charm and character of its past with all the modern conveniences of today. Come and create your own bit of family history at “Blackstone On The Bluff”.

The bright interior is tastefully decorated to honor the times of past and the simple and fresh beach lifestyle, you’re encouraged to kick off your shoes and relax! The living room offers plenty of conversational seating and the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace. The library is a nice private retreat to settle in with a book or movie at the end of the day.

The main gathering place is sure to be the large modern kitchen with a row of counter to ceiling windows overlooking Lake Michigan. The large center island with four barstools encourages extra helping hands. Enjoy meals in the large dining room with seating for 10 and room to squeeze in a couple more.

There is one bedroom on the main floor with a queen bed. An additional full sofa sleeper is available in the library with doors to close it off for privacy. Choose between two sets of stairs to get to the second level. Kids will be sure to favor the back stairs that drop them right in the bunkroom with two sets of twin bunks. The formal front staircase leads you to a large master bedroom with a king bed and views of the Lake Michigan. The final two spacious bedrooms offer a queen bed or two twin beds. Open the windows to let the waves and gentle breeze lull you to sleep. This home offers central AC on the main level, a whole house attic fan and window AC units for the upper bedrooms. Two remodeled bathrooms are available on this floor as well, one with a walk-in shower and the second with a tub/shower combination.

Transitioning from inside to out, a favorite spot for all is sure to be the large screen porch. Many meals and casual conversations are sure to be shared throughout your stay. From here one can enjoy the activity in the large yard and views of the lake. The beach is just steps away (100 steps with several landings) leading down to 100 feet of private beach. Even the dog is allowed on the beach! (yes, this home is dog friendly but be sure to take a leash!). Wash off in the outdoor shower after a great day at the beach. Just in case you did not get enough beach time in during the day, complete your evening with some star gazing and a fire up on the bluff overlooking the water, you provide the marshmallows! For those who don’t care to traverse quite that far, enjoy the lounge chairs along the house with expansive views all along the lakeshore. Located just 10 minutes north South Haven and 15 south of Saugatuck, you are conveniently located to endless opportunities for dining, shopping and galleries!

** This home rents on a weekly, Saturday to Saturday rotation during the summer months. Prices are subject to change and do not include taxes and fees. Looking for a shorter stay? Call a vacation planner at 800.908.8491 for more info.

Very nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for my 30th birthday. The property fit 14 people quite well and the view was amazing. Great communication with property managers. Easy check in and check out.

Awesome house, great location love the yard!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure if the expansive yard, or the clean charming furnishings are my favorite part of this house. The beach, is also so great, and I hardly ever see anyone, so it feels very private. Love the kitchen, bright and airy and inviting for a amateur chef like me. Love the antiques placed with modern touches. Everyone was comfortable and had such a nice time here. Will come back!

Owner's Response: With so many great features it is hard to choose a favorite. This home has one of the largest stretches of private beach that we rent which contributes to that secluded feeling. This home tends to book very far in advance. We look forward to hosting you and your guests again. Lakeshore Lodging Saugatuck, MI

The Blackstone

  • 4 of 5

Could not be a more magical place.....

The views of lake Michigan are beyond stunning, An absolute charmer in the sense of a real vacation home.

Gracious rooms with cottage charm and modern whimsy.

lovely , charming nooks to explore all over.

Stock that marvelous kitchen, spend hours on the pristine beach then listen to the absolute quiet while you sit on one of the best porches around.

Kids spend hours just being kids and pets love having the freedom.

No need to leave the compound.

If you want to absorb the local culture, it's lovely country roads with antique shops and a great berry farm down the road .

I would recommend this special place for anyone who wants to just unwind and have a truly relaxing vacation

The beauty of this place is really that it feels like it truly belongs to only you Without ever having to do anything but watch the sunset.

Holiday in May

  • 5 of 5

We drove up with our three kids, ages 13-8. They could not decide which rooms to choose b/c they each offered something appealing. They loved the bunk room with the 'secret' stairs case to the kitchen and then split up for nights alone. Love the location. We loved the beach- walking up and back, kids playing in water. The yard and porch were a favorite every night. Liked that the house had games and movies. Very clean feeling, comfortable furniture and nice style. New bathrooms and showers-which is important to me. Great new kitchen- had what I needed to bake. Lots of space to move around, play, read, add guests etc...
