Property description

Fun in the Summer AND Winter! This house is uniquely situated as it overlooks the Black River - enabling you to watch the ships come in and out of the harbor - as well as Lake Michigan. Watch the sunset without ever leaving the back yard. You'll have a view of the lake from most rooms in the house. Situated 1 block from South Beach and 2 blocks from town you can walk to nearly all of your points of destination. Comfortably sleeps 8 with plenty of floor space for sleeping bags and air mattresses for the kids. 3 full baths, 2 of which have whirlpool baths for relaxing after a day in the sun!

Spend your day at the beach and come back for an early evening swim in the heated pool while dinner is being prepared on the grill. Don't feel like cooking? Plenty of local fare to take in - from local perch to the neighborhood diner to outstanding Italian. Be sure to make it back to the house to watch the sun set over the lake from your back deck - or head back down to the beach to watch the scene unfold from the pier.

During the winter we're next door to the local sledding hill and a couple block walk to the skating rink in town!

Completely unwind with family and friends in this warm and inviting home. Recently renovated, you'll find the home well appointed and comfortable. Furnished with 2 TVs for watching movies or playing games, our home is ideal for connecting and is not equipped with cable or internet connectivity. Spend your time hiking on the Dunes in Van Buren State Park, building sand castles at the beach, renting bikes to see points close and far, golfing on the nearby links, attending wine tastings in town, rejuvenating at the spa, antiquing around town, flying kites on the beach, playing basketball in the driveway, tackling a puzzle and grabbing ice cream from the local shop.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Welcome! We hope you'll enjoy our South Haven home as much as we have! We spend a lot of our summer at little league games these days so having other people enjoy our home seems like the right thing to do!

Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
From the first time we set foot in South Haven we knew we'd spend a lot of time here. The residents are friendly and the freedom for the kids to get outdoors and roam is such a refreshing change from arranged play dates we experience in the city of Chicago! From the local diner to the old movie theater to the local bakery, there's nothing we don't like about this town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we're in South Haven, we spend time as a family - no excessive work calls, no over crammed schedules - just relaxing and spending time together. We both love the water so having the pool at the house is a nice extension of our outdoor time when Lake Michigan is too cold for anyone over 10!
