                  Location

                  South Haven is the Blueberry capital of the country and a major producer of apples and peaches. Plan your vacation during the picking season and enjoy delicious fresh fruit. Many farms provide tours of their acreage and explain the growing cycle and harvesting of their produce.

                  The Michigan Maritime Museum is a regional attraction housing displays and information on the maritime history of the Great Lakes. It owns its own tall ship called the Friends Goodwill. Take a daytime or evening sale on her to watch our gorgeous sunsets.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: My wife and I moved to South Haven MI in 2000. We purchased an antique shop to apply our 32 year passion for antiques to this quaint resort town. We truly enjoy meeting new customers and spreading the word about the unique opportunities in this historic harbor town.

                  Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
                  Renovating a historic house has been an interest of ours for many years and we chose a property close to downtown in a quiet residential neighborhood. It soon proved to be an ideal opportunity for vacation rental and additional income.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The benefits of the property we purchased is its location within a 10 minute walk of downtown and about 15 minutes to the closest Lake Michigan beach. The house is large (about 2200 sf) with a large open floor plan on the first floor. The kitchen opens out to a large back yard with a large viewing deck for entertaining, relaxing, and watching the sky change colors as the sun sets across the Celery Pond. The pond is a large wetland full of wildlife for observation.
