South Haven is a coastal city located on the eastern shore of beautiful Lake Michigan. The Black River Harbor is one of the most attractive recreational harbors on Lake Michigan. Summertime activities include swimming, boating, fruit picking, golfing, hiking, and biking. Dubbed as the 'Blueberry Capital of the World', South Haven hosts the annual National Blueberry Festival each August. Winter activities include skiing, sledding, and ice skating. Of course, the great dining, museums, galleries, and shopping is available year-round. The house is just a short walk down the sidewalk to the fabulous Kid's Corner Playground, which boasts a large wooden playscape structure that overlooks Lake Michigan. South Beach access is adjacent to Kid's Corner. The quaint downtown South Haven, with its unique shops, eateries, and pubs nestled along the banks of the picturesque Black River Harbor is also just a short walk down the sidewalk.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We have family photos taken in South Haven each year. Shown here is a sample of one of our 2011 photos taken on South Beach.
Why the Owner Chose South Haven: We vacationed in South Haven for the first time in August of 2004. At that time, we had a family of 4, with a newborn and 1 year old. The town was so beautiful and kid-friendly that we knew we wanted to come back over and over. Since we are originally from Illinois and now live in the middle of Michigan, the South Haven location is a perfect meeting place for our family gatherings. We fell in love so quickly with the town that we purchased a 3 bedroom house in South Haven in November of 2004. We labored all winter to completely renovate the house into a 6 bedroom vacation home specifically designed for family reunions. We finished just in time for the summer of 2005 summer renters and the rest is history, with 100+ family reunions enjoyed at our homes!
