Now renting summer 2016!!!

Welcome to the Hideout! A perfect all-around vacation getaway. True historic home centrally located between South Haven and Saugatuck. Part of the Glenn Haven Shores Association which offers access to tennis courts and Lake Michigan's sugar sand beaches. Nestled on five acres you will find this one of a kind property featuring four bedrooms in the main house, large indoor pool surrounded by skylights and French doors. Newly remodeled main house boasts a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, new beds and new bathrooms. Attached guest house offers four more bedrooms, additional kitchen and living area. This house is bubbling with character and charm.

Local lore has it that Bugsy Moran's mistress lived in the Hideout during the years that he worked with the Chicago mob, and that he used the back buildings to store liquor during prohibition. Enjoy the sounds of the country from the sunroom or roast marshmallows on the patio's stone fire pit. Only a six minute walk to the Lake Michigan coastline and wonderful memories!

Amazing!

We had our annual youth leader retreat here. The property is absolutely gorgeous and accommodated our large group perfectly! The pool was fantastic and very clean. Great location, unbeatable price. We would highly recommend and will definitely return in the future :)

Awesome Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 50th anniversary celebration for our parents at the Hideout and it was an awesome time. The kids (and adults) really enjoyed the indoor pool and pool area. There were more than enough bedrooms and beds, bathrooms, practically everything supplied. We had an awesome time and were able to make many memories. We would and have recommended this property to family and friends.

Accommodating For All

We had a family reunion at the Hideout and it turned out to be a wonderful time. We had people here from 1-80 years old and this location provided a safe home environment with a lot to do both on and off the property. Highly recommended!!

Huge house and secluded property

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a weekend in late May with a group of friends. The weather was lousy so having an indoor pool and huge pool area was great. I really liked the fact that the house is well appointed with a fire pit, grill, indoor/outdoor stereo system, internet and satellite TV. There are basically 3 distinct areas to this property- the main house, the pool area and the guest house that also has its own kitchen and sitting area. We were never in need of a dish or kitchen item that wasn't provided which was nice. I would stay here again.

Rain or sine always a good time.

  • 5 of 5

A close group of friends and I rented this property looking for a getaway from life and work. This is absolutely one of the best places Ive vacationed in Michigan. Your own 24 hour heated indoor pool, an easy walk to the beach, and plenty of room. Not sure how to feel more relaxed!
