About Richard Riggs
I grew up in Southeast Michigan near Ann Arbor and went to school at Michigan State. After a number of years away I returned to live in my family home, an 1873 farmhouse where my great grandfather cleared the land. I have enjoyed the updates and remodeling that comes with the vintage of the house, but mostly appreciate the park-like setting in the area.
Richard Riggs purchased this House in 2013
Why Richard Riggs chose South Haven Charter Township
I have enjoyed many trips to the Lake Michigan beaches and enjoyed the serenity of the water, dunes and breezes. The ability to observe the sunsets over the water with feet in the sand and to hear waves come ashore is an especially relaxing moment. To do so in an area which is notable for blueberries and close to other great shore communities a short drive away was particularly appealing to me. I hope you will come to appreciate this environment, as well! There are seasonal events and activities to enjoy from festivals for film and blueberry lovers, as well as year-round benefits of hiking and biking.
What makes this House unique
The proximity to the beach and lighthouse was an attraction to the area, and this house offered a great open floor-plan which will allow people to stay engaged and appreciate time together. A bicycle store is around the corner if you wish to rent bikes for a trip around town or down the Kal Haven trail. There are unique shops in South Haven and a short drive takes you to the Saugatuck community for even more shopping with a creative, artistic emphasis.

This home was perfect for our bachelorette party of 12. The home is very spacious, clean, and close to downtown that has many activities to offer! We could not have picked a better place to celebrate our bride’s send off! I highly recommend Richard Riggs and his properties.
Great house and location
Girls weekend and this house was perfect. Clean, large and had everything that we needed. Looks better in person than pictures. Very spacious. Did not have high cleaning charges as some others did and deposit was returned promptly without asking. Would definitely recommend.
Great location, Cute house
This house was PERFECT for us - we had 11 women stay for a long weekend. There was plenty of room for us all to hang out, the bathrooms were big enough for us to share while getting ready, and the walk into town was really easy and short. Everything was clean and as expected. There is a good amount of parking which was really helpful. Everything was well stocked and ready for us when we arrived.
The AC didn't seem to work but we didn't really need it as it cooled down at night and we didn't spend much time there during the day. We also couldn't get the Bluetooth speaker to work for playing music but we brought our own so no big deal. I'm assuming that these will be fixed soon as they seem to take really good care of the property!
Richard was quick to respond when I had a question about Check in/Check out time. Overall we were VERY happy with our stay and a couple of the ladies expressed interest in renting for their families in the future.
Relaxing and Fun
We just had our annual girl’s weekend at this home and had a blast. We love how there is a long table with enough chairs for all 10 of us so we could be together for dinner and playing games. The beds were all very comfortable. The home was clean and well kept. We will be renting next year.
Great Home - Great Location!!!
Our second visit and not the last!!! South Haven is fabulous all seasons! We enjoyed a ski trip, ice skating and a cornhole tourney at the local brewery!!
Great home, better than the pictures.
We had an absolutely great stay in South Haven! It is an easy walk to downtown and to the beach if you are feeling up to it. The home was clean and had everything we needed, the kids especially loved the bunk beds. We will definitely book the same home again.
The South Haven area is historic as a maritime center. It still offers boaters a great marina setting with docking just a short walk to downtown. The beach is beautiful with a new children's play area and lovely sunsets. There are a variety of recreational opportunities including nearby golf courses, and summer rentals for water sports. The Kal Haven linear State Park is a hiking and biking trail starting from the beach area and proceeding into rural SW Michigan. As a starting point for regional exploring this property is a mile from the highway allowing an interesting visit to the Saugatuck/Douglas and Holland areas.
