Why Jim Hahn chose South Haven
Owning and managing several properties in the area, our model is to purchase property with no less than 10 acres of land, outside of the downtown area, giving our guests the opportunity to recharge and relax in a quiet setting that close to all that southwest Michigan has to offer. The PrairieWood is within minutes of several public access Lake Michigan beaches, South Haven's wonderful farmers market, restaurants, grocery shopping, and antiquing.
What makes this House unique
Our PrairieWood guests are always commenting on the screened porch, the shade garden under the 80 year old pines, the bon fire pit, and the very large deck for grilling, dining, relaxing.

Great home in South Haven, MI
We loved our stay here! Beautiful home with a great patio/backyard for outside dining. Close to everything in South Haven
Idyllic spot for family getaway
Absolutely gorgeous property, incredibly peaceful, and enhanced even more by the multiple indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Whether you’re in the mood to be with a group or just by yourself, there’s a place for you to do it all. Trail biking, hiking, the beach, they are all minutes away. The house is incredibly well-equipped with all the appliances and cookware you’d need to make a gourmet meal for many. And there’s a huge grocery store nearby. The house accommodations are great and very comfortable beds and large bathrooms. Can’t wait to get back to this Mecca in the woods.
Such a cute place!
The house was perfect for our family of 4 plus our Golden! It was very clean and the pictures matched perfectly with what we found. The owner was very friendly too. The location was close to many different activities, but nice and very private as well. We would definitely stay there again!
Relax and Enjoy
Prairiewood is a wonderful home in the most relaxing setting. We LOVE the Arts and Crafts interior. All the beautiful details make you feel like you're staying at a friend's home not a rental. The huge yard is amazing with gorgeous landscaping and multiple areas to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. South Haven is less than a 10 minute drive and Saugatuck 15-20. We look forward to coming back!
Thank you for your review. Kyle and I are very pleased you enjoyed The PrairieWood as much as you did The HollyWoods. We look forward to having you back again as our guest.
This home was nothing like we expected, it was so much more!
This home is charming and beautifully decorated. It felt just like home.
Gorgeous landscape, lots of fun, rain and fog, but mostly sun. So much time to relax, binder filled with useful facts. Nice thick towels, comfy bed, it’s just as great as people said. Lake Michigan for the day, not far away, then came home after the sun’s hot rays. Laughing, talking, playing cards, s’mores and frisbee in the yard. House shows off so much hard work, outdoor speakers are a perk! Every room so well designed...by men, both talented and kind. Perfect home with lots of style, love the first floor bathroom tile. Gazing at a star filled sky, wondering how the week flew by. Time with family and some friends, did not want the time to end. Great retreat from the big city, can’t stay longer- such a pity!
Just returned from a wonderful visit to this property. We loved the landscape of this beautiful property. The back patio is surrounded by lush greenery. Our 4yr old loved to explore the huge outdoor space. We had a bonfire every night. The inside is well decorated and provides a relaxing atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the speaker system in every room and on the back patio. South Haven has plenty to offer for kids. There is a large playground located about 10mins away called Kids Corner. Visiting the pirate ship is also a must. It is a short distance to everything south haven has to offer. You can’t go wrong with this house.
This house is located just outside of downtown South Haven and is about 2 hours from Chicago and about 3 hours from Detroit. The town is known for it’s Lake Michigan beaches, it’s many festivals, farmer’s market and gracious hospitality.
South Haven is halfway between the other harbor towns St. Joseph and Saugatuck/Douglas which both make for easy day-trips. The area is also known as 'Harvest Country' for it’s many u-pick fruit orchards and winery tours. Besides Lake Michigan, there are many inland lakes for fishing and rivers for canoeing and kayaking.
The area has plenty of art galleries, museums and historic sites to keep the mind as well as the body occupied.
Summer is abuzz with sun-soaked activities which stretch into the fall when rolling hills and woods become ablaze with color. Winter festivals, outdoor ice-skating, and snowmobiling keep folks busy in the snowy months.
