Property description

The Lakeland is a beautiful family vacation house and is close to South Haven's beautiful South Beach as well as all of the great shops and restaurants in downtown South Haven. The benefit to this location is that once you buy your groceries, you will not need to get in your car until it is time to go home.
Carefully renovated in 2013 with the expertise of a graphic designer and an architect, upgrades include:refinished oak floors, an additional bathroom, kitchen reconfiguration with Andersen sliding door to deck, 1st floor washer and dryer, new furnishings and decor.
Located on a quiet cul de sac, it boasts the best that South Haven has to offer without the noise. Public south beach is easily accessible with no stairs just 2 blocks from the house.

The Lakeland has four comfortable bedrooms with two full baths and one half bath and is the ultimate family getaway. The bedrooms consist of one king bed, one queen bed, four twin beds, and one more queen bedroom. The bedrooms also have quality designer linens. The house is beautifully decorated with a tasteful blend of new and antique fixtures and furnishings. Pride of ownership abounds with much of the original historic architectural details remaining.
The front porch has two comfortable rocking chairs for reading and relaxing.
The outdoor rear deck is perfect for relaxing with an ice cold beverage and a family barbecue after a day of fun at the beach. Don't feel like cooking? No problem! Within a short walk are several excellent restaurants for your dining enjoyment.

This comfortable, four bedroom, 2.5 bath home we call 'Lakeland' is ideally located between South Haven's South Beach and all of the great shops and restaurants in downtown South Haven. The South Beach is a short walk to the west, and downtown South Haven is just to the east. Please click on the satellite photo map above to view the exact location. Walk to Farmers' Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays through September, yacht club,restaurants, Kidscorner park,bookstore,coffee shops,antiques,wine tasting,ice cream,bakery,pizza,etc. Once you arrive, you won't need your car or need to cook until it is time to go home. (Unless you are going to DeGrandchamp's to pick blueberries or over to Crane's farm to pick apples which are just outside town and whose fruits make great pies!) Literally walk everywhere you want to go!!!

Ice skating rink now open,sled hill, too. Walk to both and enjoy!

 

Owner info

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!
