"We went to celebrate a 21st and 40th birthday with our friends at Yacht Haven, 2 sets of friends from Henry Island joined us during the day. The boat dock was perfect for the couple boats we had. We all loved it. It was truly a haven! The house was about 98% complete and slept all 15 of us perfectly. The rooms are very nice, big and peaceful. The bathrooms are GREAT! The loft was perfect for sharing a video of memories from our awesome group of friends. The kitchen is huge and had plenty of room to entertain and cook. Again we had a big group and there wasn't enough towels, mixing bowls, supplies and we ran out of garbage bags the 2nd day, dish soap on the last day :( we would suggest that these items get restocked daily. The bath towels were also never restocked; 4 days at Yacht Haven and we could have used them. Bring your own shampoo and soap too. The main room will blow your mind, amazing, beautiful views, breathless! Huge wood dining table that I WANT! We caught over 100 crabs in the 4 days we stayed, caught 8 pink salmon, enjoyed the 2 goats on the property, saw deer on the side yard, an eagle, went whale watching and saw over 20 ORCAS! Loved it! I want to go back NOW!
The rope swing was great fun and the crab boiling station was the BEST! Mike did a great job on this and I think some Henry Islander's are going to copy his idea. The pool was a bit of a hit and miss as we were told when we got to the property that it was a public pool with lessons given daily. That was a bit of a bummer, I paid $3k for 4 days and I wish at least the pool was private. Also, they shut it down early our last night. There were several people working on the property. I didn't mind too much because I'm outgoing but for those who want private... this is not. The host Chey, lives on the property. She is a busy girl, very nice and will take care of what you need. She always made us feel at home and communicated well with us regarding any issues that the property had. We gave her some of our food as she said when the BBQ was going it smelt so good, that we should open a restaurant. Cool lady! Thanks for a great weekend CHEY!
The property offers a lot of beautiful retreats; pool area, patio area, crab boiling area, beach, trees, etc. We took the kayaks out many times and pulled crab pots from them. Loved that too! There are several trip hazards outside so I'd say watch the little ones carefully.
I would go back in a heart beat!!!! ENJOY Yacht HAVEN!"
