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.

Wonderful holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in your lovely home is like coming to stay in a “family” home. All the things used at home are here – blankets to wrap up in, condiments in the refrigerator, full size bottles of shampoo and lotions, games and puzzles, lots of seating inside and out. We felt at home immediately.

We loved the unusual architecture – with the two master suites each with private stairs, and the almost circular staircase leading to the ground level. The decor is lovely – bright and colorful with so many pretty decorating touches.

We enjoyed the beach and tram. We went for walks on the beach, collected some interesting rocks and shells, and waded in the water of lake Michigan.

Your beach home is charming. We loved everything about it. Thank you for sharing it with us.
