About The Owner

Our family has been coming to South Haven for several generations and for many reasons. We enjoy swimming at the beautiful beaches. We enjoy golfing. There are several great golf courses such as Hawk's Head and Beaches. We enjoy biking. The Kal-haven Bike Trail is near our home and is a 33.5 mile long multi-use trail linking Kalamazoo to South Haven. Most of all we enjoy family. South Haven is a place where family memories are created and remembered for a life time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Southwest Michigan

Our home is a nice retreat when you want to get away from it all. With a well equipped kitchen, you can grill in the huge back yard, play a little badminton and volleyball, then dine and relax on the patio and porches. You are also just steps to restaurants when you don't feel like cooking. We enjoy the convenience of walking to South Haven's restaurants and downtown shops while also enjoying quiet time on our beautifully quiet tree lined street.

What makes this house unique

The home is just blocks to the Kal-Haven Trail a 33.5 mile long multi-use trail that links South Haven to Kalamazoo. The trail is not only stunning but is a preferred destination for biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. A new skateboard park has been added at the entrance of the Kal-Haven Trail. Great for teens! There is also a park with swings, slides, play set and basketball court located 1 block east of The Roost.

Outstanding stay at the Roost!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (4 adults, 5 kids) just spent a week at the Roost and had the best time in our long history of coming to South Haven! The house was perfect for our needs, with the kids having ample space to hang out and sleep upstairs.

The location is PERFECT, with South Haven being a 5 min walk away. We rented bikes one day and the 9 of us easily walked to get the bikes then biked to the 30-mile trail, also close to the Roost.

The owner was incredibly responsive also throughout the process.... while out on our bike ride, I remembered we used the gas in the grill the night before... by the time we returned, it had already been refilled. Amazing.

All the basics were covered of course: clean house, well maintained, etc.

The Roost gets our highest possible recommendation!

Perfect summer home for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely recommend The Roost to anyone passing through South Haven! I planned my sisters bachelorette party and the place comfortably fit all 10 of us. It was charming, clean, and had the perfect beach house vibes. It definitely exceeded my expectations, and Madelene the contact for the rental was also super helpful and organized which made the whole process that much more enjoyable. Loved loved loved it!

A world away...

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from an amazing stay at The Roost which included 5 children under the age of 7, grandparents, etc. From the get-go Madeleine was quick to answer questions and very professional. We enjoyed the multiple sunrooms, backyard for bbq's and proximity to walk downtown. The house was well appointed with three cable televisions, comfortable bedding and beach toys, a wagon, beach chairs and even a washer and dryer. We felt a world away being in South Haven--it comfortably slept our large group, which was hard to find.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Roost was a great choice for our family. There was plenty of space for everyone in the main living area and in the bedrooms. The home was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was great and included everything we could possibly need. The dining table is big enough for everyone to sit around for a meal or a game. The floor-plan pictures of the first and second floors were helpful to plan sleeping arrangements before we arrived. It is just a short walk to downtown and definitely walking distance to the beach. The owner was very easy to work with and responded to any questions quickly. We had a lot of fun apple picking at Overheiser orchards and have been enjoying the delicious apples. Sunset at the beach was spectacular!

I would recommend this place to my friends and family

They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This summer was our first time staying at The Roost. We had 5 adults and 4 children, including an infant. The home is just as adorable as it looks in the pictures and we LOVED the spacious backyard. It was the perfect place for the kids (and adults) to play when we weren't strolling downtown or at the beach. I must say, I have rented many properties in my day but I have never rented a property as fully stocked as The Roost. Madeleine has truly thought of everything one could possibly need. The decor is lovely and the home easily accommodated our family. Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't give Madeleine a personal shout out for graciously returning my son's beloved stuffed animal that got left behind. Thanks again!
