North Beach House - South Haven

  • 5 of 5

This house is even better than it looks in the pictures. We were in awe of the size of the house, decorations, and the view. Numerous patios allow you to enjoy both the house and the beach which is literally 30 yards away. Couldn't have picked a better place to enjoy our stay in South Haven at.

Wonderful Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful wknd! The home was every bit as beautiful, comfortable, and accessible as we hoped. Upon arrival, all lights were on, music was playing and heat was turned up creating the most ideal warm welcome. The gorgeous architecture, luxury bedding, baths, and fully equipped kitchen made settling in and relaxing very easy. In such a clean large home it was easy to sneak away from the group to find a cozy place for some quiet time to myself with tea and a good book. While this home would be an absolute hot spot in the summer, it served as the perfect winter weekend getaway. We had no problem entertaining ourselves using the gorgeous kitchen to cook big meals and enjoying board games and cocoa around the fire place. The view of the lake is amazing- and snowy lakeside walks were the best way to start our day. With the house so close to down town South Haven, it was just a quick walk to the cute shops, yummy restaurants, and awesome outdoor ice rink. Fun was had by all in a home that served as the perfect setting for making a memorable weekend.

Outstanding home and views

  • 5 of 5

The Lighthouse Home is perfect. We enjoyed walking right out to the beach and lighthouse. The sunsets were beautiful from all three levels of the house. We enjoyed cooking and being together in the great kitchen and family room. You will love it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a group of eight girlfriends at the house. It's not often easy to get eight women to agree on something. However, we all loved this house! It certainly exceeded our expectations. Two of us tried to get relatives to buy the house so we could keep it in our group, but sadly the timing wasn't right. It was so tastefully decorated and very clean. But more importantly, the location was fabulous. It was steps from a big, beautiful beach that was cleaned and groomed every day. We spent most of our time at the house on the upstairs deck. The way it is situated on the corner provides unexpected privacy and a spectacular view. We enjoyed watching the boats come and go through the channel. We were on the beach both nights for amazing sunsets. We walked to town for dinner and drinks and drove less than 30 minutes to shop and dine in Douglas and Saugatuck. Our group did everything we planned on doing, but discovered lots of other things to do. We definitely want to come back again!

The mobile app was so convenient and we really appreciated the prompt response to our email about the low battery in the keypad. It was replaced before we returned to the house. There really isn't anything we could suggest to improve upon this experience. It was fabulous!
