We had a great stay at this property. 16 (ages 6 to 73) people total and never felt cramped. You can find things to do if you want, golf nearby, shopping and blueberry picking. We just spent most of or time at the house. Lots to do there. Kids loved the pool (we paid the extra to heat the pool and it was worth it!) and the beach. Lots of stairs to get to the beach but well worth the effort. There are beach toys and chairs there. Hot tub was great.
Very good service with a minor problem with the wireless internet was fixed by the owner within an hour. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. I have back problems and was very comfortable on the bed. Kitchen is very good. Back deck has two nice tables and very spacious. Grill is big enough to cook for 16 with no problem.
The most amazing sunsets, can't even begin to describe them.
I would highly recommend this property!
Overall the house and the property was great. Amazing view of the lake, full of amenities and great for large groups.
Only complaint about the place is the bugs. Not sure if it's the time of year (late September) or just because the house is right on the lake but flies, mosquitoes, ants, and gnats we're everywhere. Highly recommend bringing lots of bug spray, bug bombs and/or citronella candles for outside. It was manageable once we got bug spray so I would still recommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable getaway for a large group.
This property is well equipped with everything we needed to make a great week of laughter, fun, activity, and opportunities to share with family members we don't see often enough. There are many things one can do at Beach Haven including cuddling up with a great book in comfy furniture, watching a movie on any one of the multiple TVs, swim in Lake Michigan or the swimming pool on the property, play games and race around on the lakefront lawn, and relax in the hot tub. This was the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
We had a marvelous stay at Beach Haven without any problems. The house was bigger and more luxurious than the pictures made it look! Unfortunately, the pool was out of commission due to the time of year but the hot tub was clean and functioning properly. The beach is fairly small and rugged but couldn't complain about the beautiful view. The home is clearly setup to entertain with cabinets labeled for glasses/plates, etc. and directions to use everything from Bluetooth speakers to the dishwasher. Also, their Blue Ray collection is insane in case you get stuck with rainy weather.
I would recommend this house to any group!
The layout, and the furniture appointments were excellent. Great home for a nice relaxing vacation for a larger group. The location is fantastic
This was our 5th annual Labor Day reunion on Lake Michigan with our six children, spouses, and rapidly multiplying grandchildren. Every year we hope to find that special place for our time together that we might be able to return to each year. When we were searching for a property large enough for our group and saw the pictures of Beach Haven, everyone was excited to come!! I will say, the pictures do not do this property justice. Everything about this property from the pool out front (which is actually very cool!) to the private beach out back is absolutely perfect. Having a private beach was wonderful. We were able to set up an awning to allow for some shade for the babies and safely leave our toys and kayak at the beach. Fellow vacationers walking along the beach were so friendly. We even loved the 100+ stairs - quite a fun way to exercise and either direction ended up in some refreshing water. We ended up with 18 adults, children and infants in our group and never felt the least crowded. The owners have thoughtfully provided many unexpected extras that made our time at Beach Haven a dream vacation. Everyone in our group hopes that we will be able to return to Beach Haven and have it become part of our family's memories. Thank you for contributing to a great vacation and reunion!
