Hart Haven is heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great visit in South Haven and a lovely stay at Hart Haven. The entire family enjoyed gathering in the kitchen and hanging out on the deck. The tram down to the lake made it possible for all four generations to enjoy the Lake. Hart Haven is located a short ride to downtown and interesting area shopping, and a 10 minute ride to Saugatuck.

Breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation stay at Hart's Haven was amazing. We were able to bring our beloved pet, which was a first for us. Sitting out on the huge deck with the beautiful water view was so amazingly relaxing. Private beach was so great and so close to South Haven! Highly recommend!!

Outstanding view, very clean, kind and attentive owners, and amenities galore!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home on gorgeous Lake Michigan! Your hosts, Jim and Karen, are welcoming and attentive yet not intrusive. The air-conditioned home is clean and comfortable with lots of fluffy towels, an extremely well-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, beach supplies, and outstanding views. Outside are a hot tub, grill, wrap around porch/balcony, lower level shaded seating, and a swinging seat. The "tram" to the private beach makes it accessible - even for visitors who cannot walk far - and easy to schlepp food and toys to the beach. The two large en-suite bedrooms with king beds (one with a to-die-for view of the lake) give two couples privacy. South Haven and Saugatauk are both within easy driving distance. The lake and beach were clean and great for swimming, wading, searching for rocks and sea glass. or lounging. As we departed for Illinois and New York respectively, we were sad to leave this lovely home and setting!

Beautiful beach home

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Hart Haven. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed and more. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves and liked that we could take long walks. The Harts are very pleasant and made our stay one of the best summer vacations yet.
