About the property

Spacious 5 bedroom - 4 1/2 bath cottage

This inviting two story Arts & Crafts cottage with completed lower level is a spacious 3,300 sf. It has 5 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths and is finished in a relaxed, comfortable décor with an open concept floor plan that’s perfect for getting the whole family together. Terrific views overlook the woods and Dragonfly Pond.

It features comfortable, quality furnishings and modern appliances, including 3 flat screen TVs, premium hi-def satellite, stainless appliances and DVD players. It also has a front porch and large back deck with built -in gas grill, central air, 3 fireplaces, dish washer, washer/dryer and comes stocked with sheets, towels and a fully equipped kitchen.

Located in the Harbor Club South Haven, the Cherry Blossom is just steps from our private marina with club house and heated seasonal pool. There’s a great public beach just two blocks away that is very easy to walk to and a little more secluded than the busy downtown beaches. Access to this beach is just off the property with lots of street parking. We are also only 5 minutes to the unique shopping and dinning of downtown South Haven making it the the perfect spot to be close to everything and still away from it all.

Why Blue Water Vacation Rentals chose Southwest Michigan

The charming harbor town of South Haven has long been a favorite spot for vacationers for over 140 years because it is packed with wonderful restaurants, great shopping, fun museums and unique galleries. And you really feel like you’re on vacation here when you spend the day out on a boat fishing or just catching some rays. Great breezes make for excellent para-surfing or sailing and all of this is in addition to the miles of clean, white sugar sand beaches and the famous lingering sunsets. There is never an uneventful moment here unless you want one.

And the lake isn’t the only place to have fun. You can also play golf or tennis, go horseback riding, or ride bikes along the famous Kal-Haven trail. If you want to take it down a notch, take a tour of the local vineyards or spend a glorious afternoon being pampered at a local day spa. Located in the heart of Michigan wine country the rich soil is also perfect for abundant fruit harvests which makes for great farm markets and U pick farms.

The area offers amazing views of autumn foliage, terrific winter snowmobiling, sledding, skiing and colorful spring festivals there is always something fun to do every season of the year.

And because South Haven is so easy to get to from Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Ohio and even St. Louis it is the perfect family vacation spot.

What makes this cottage unique

Harbor Club is a relaxed and inviting residential community featuring beautifully designed Arts & Crafts style homes, exciting vacation cottages and an exceptional private riverfront marina. The cottages are surrounded by spectacular native scenery, with community fire pits, and is located just two blocks from Lake Michigan beaches.

Another lovely winter weekend in South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third consecutive winter weekend with Bluewater Vacation Rentals and our second stay at the Cherry Blossom property. The open living/dining/kitchen area is ideal for group gatherings, close enough for all to be together but separate enough to allow for games at the dining table, reading or TV in the living area, and cooking in the kitchen all simultaneously. The addition of a fourth full bathroom in this property was also a huge plus for our group.

This year we tried out the nearby Kal-Haven trail for the first time and found it to be a wonderful surprise. A great option in addition to all the other charms of South Haven.

Cherry Blossom is clean, well-appointed property. We look forward to next year!

Well-appointed property. Lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

We had a Ministry retreat weekend. The property was perfect for what we needed to accomplish (away from everything but close to everything). With 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms there was never any standing in line. Even the 2 1/2 year old had his own room (the walk in closet), and was excited about it. There were 14 of us, and everyone had their own bed. Loved, loved, loved the kitchen. Lots of prep space and granite counter tops, double sink, gas stove. Plenty of towels and wash cloths, paper towels and toilet paper (something I usually bring with me because the rental never has enough). With 2 master suites, the leaders were able to have their own personal space. The living room was the perfect size for our meetings and training. So quiet and peaceful. Almost around the corner from the Kal-Haven trail. Two blocks to the beach, 5 minutes from downtown. If you're needing space for a retreat or family gathering, this is the place. Excellent customer service.

South Haven is a great spot for fishing, boating and enjoying magnificent, leisurely sunsets. The community is just south of Saugatuck, known for its eclectic art community, and is in the heart of the Michigan wine country. The rich soil here is perfect for abundant fruit harvests, especially blueberries, which makes for great farm markets, U pick farms and autumn foliage. With terrific cross country skiing, snowmobiling and spring tulip festivals there is always something to see and do in the area every season of the year. South Haven is located 45 miles west of Kalamazoo, 181 miles west of Detroit, 62 miles northwest of South Bend, and 123 miles northeast of Chicago. The property is between N. Shore Dr. and Blue Star Highway on Baseline Rd.
