About Dianne

We have lived in South Haven since 1977. We bought our current home in 1989 when our children were young. After experiencing an empty nest and retirement we decided to rent out our carriage house apartment to summer guests.

Dianne purchased this apartment in 1989

A South Haven Gem

  • 5 of 5

I had the good fortune to spend 3 lovely nights in this special cottage/carriage house. It's a wonderful, private place offering beautiful views of the lake, a private beach on the lake, and a warm, cozy place to hang out and relax. It was well worth the money! The owners were very welcoming and kind. It's within walking distance to the main public beach of South Haven, certainly an easy bike ride as well. I will definitely seek to stay here again when I visit the region.
