Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are both lifelong residents of Chicago and have had the good fortune to travel much of the world. We have also had the good fortune to visit and vacation in South Haven, Michigan for over half a century. While we live in Chicago and continue to travel to far away places, our hearts remain in South Haven. We have wonderful and cherished memories of watching our children play on the beach year after year. We now are blessed to watch our grandchildren come and visit us and watch them play on the beach. Having three, and at times four generations of our family sitting on the beach at the water's edge and sharing these moments together is truly priceless. We hope to share our home in South Haven with your family for you to create lasting memories of your own!
Why the Owner Chose South Haven: The incredible and convenient location!!! The Lakeland is ideally located a very short walk to both the South Beach and to all of the cute shops and restaurants in downtown South Haven. Many of the other homes we considered purchasing would require getting in the car to get to the beach or to downtown South Haven. There are no stairs to the beach either. We just love the ease of being able to walk everywhere.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The Lakeland has been beautifully maintained keeping much of it's original stained wood work, paneling, etc. The overall character and charm of this Victorian home has been preserved yet updated with upscale modern amenities such as central air, forced heat, modern appliances, custom hunter douglas wooden shutters, ceramic/marble bathrooms, etc.
Please click on our updated availability calendar at the top of our listing to see if your desired dates are available. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate your family in South Haven at the Lakeland!
