Our party of 14 girls had a wonderful time in South Haven. We truly utilized every square inch of space for meals, fun, games, and lounging. The layout is perfect for large groups and allows everyone to be together at once--in a number of settings! The large dining room table, the cozy basement sitting area, the patio, and the upstairs living room were wonderful for our weekend get-away. The two bathrooms were a tight, understandably so, when we tried to get ready around the same time, and the firepit wasn't working, but due to the noise ordinance and the warm weather, it wasn't much of an issue. We cooked multiple meals at the house and were pleased to use the supplied kitchen tools and ample counter space. Julia kindly recommended we bring cups and paper plates which was a great suggestion--it definitely helped with clean up. The nearby convenience store and coffee shop next door were also hits with our group. We couldn't have been more pleased, and I recommend Julia's home to anyone looking for a comfortable, homey lake house for a group getaway. I hope to return with our group and even my big family sometime, too! Thank you Julia!!
